So Shoe Me ~ 2/22/2012
Today's So Shoe Me is the Gentry-E by Zalo By Ramon Tenza, $155, available at Lori's Shoes. Velvet smoking slippers are no longer just for Hugh. Last fall this easy and comfortable shape became on of the hottest new footwear trends and sleek slippers were still all the rage for show goers during NYFW (via The Cut). Several high end designers have taken the simple velvet slipper and added signature embroidery to add a personal touch to this versatile style but with prices upwards of $400 it seriously deducts from the statement heel budget, which really isn't a viable option for shoe hoarders like us. But I may have hit the jackpot with these velvet grosgrain trim slippers by Zalo by Ramon Tanza. They have the same high quality finishes at a fraction of the price of similar high end options and the embroidered elephant adds an unexpected bit of fun to turn this old man's comfort shoe into a fashion forward flat. Pair these chic embroidered smoking slippers with a pair of printed straight leg pants (tribal, striped, floral, whatever fits your style best) and a sheer button down for an easy sophisticated spring outfit.
So Shoe Me a pair of personality filled loafers that will add a cool sensibility to my low budget, high fashion style.
