So a pair of beaded loafers show up. One yay'ed these, but how do I feel? Tab me for Absolute Nay! Those may be the worst loafers I've ever seen. The best outfit to wear with those loafers is by throwing these loafers in the biggest dumpster you can find. Those little beads and studs say "fail" all over them. Truly criminal. Only positive is that the shape of the loafers aren't bad.

Alternatives DEFINITELY required for those fail-tastic loafers.

Fashion items and truly amazing things are "to die for," as some would say. Loafers that ugly must die. Studded/Beaded loafers like the ones I just reviewed only serve one purpose- scarring people for life just by looking at them. Felt like I was having a mid-life crisis... and I'm only 26! Let me see if I can find something better than those.



THEMES: loafer, penny, accent
http://www.lordandtaylor.com/eng/Sho...ctcampaign=221 (when trying something different fails, go back to classics, like this one)
* http://www.endless.com/dp/B002DYJXKY...SIN=B002DYJXKY (when trying something different fails, go back to classics, like this one. Kitten heel.)
* http://www.lordandtaylor.com/eng/Sho...ctcampaign=221 (a nice alternative to ballet flats)
* http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/produc...7791&csid=S459 (classic loafer with a chic wedge style)
* http://www.bluefly.com/Stuart-Weitzm...b-000423bb4e79 (good for dressing up and even down)
* http://www.endless.com/dp/B000W8YEY8...SIN=B000W8YEY8 (loafer pumps that could also double as an oxford pumps)

If money weren't an object:
* http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/ca...5&ci_sku=X0DWY (loafers as I remember from the '90s; real casual)
* http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3037293?...REz3aCZkHMV9ow



Boat shoes are basically the new loafers nowadays. So you may want to see these as well. This is a best-of-both worlds approach with some fun colors: http://www.endless.com/dp/B000MD86SS...SIN=B000MD86SS .



Now on to the peep-toes in Post #697. To be honest, I don't usually like peep-toe mary janes. These peep-toe mary janes are nice, but not nice enough. So I'll say (moderate) Yay! because I love mary janes. If I find other nice pairs of of peep-toe mary janes, I'll be sure to share them in a future post. Just wanting to give good recommendations for the shoe lovers of the world...

UniQFashionista: Definite YAY on the Loubs. Those shoes are phenomenal in person.

Julz: Slight Nay. I don't like the wooden insert. Looks out of place.

Julz - keep putting yours off as I can't decide. I think I'm going to settle for a minor nay

Julz, yay although I don't like brown heel.

If you ask me, I think John M. is doing a great job and giving alternatives. Also he gives good reasons as to why he Yay or Nay. Keep it up. John!
