Loafing (See Jane Idle)

Did you have penny loafers when you were growing up?  I did.  Did you love sticking pennies in them?  Sure did. 


I want penny loafers again...in a bad way.  And not just because I want(ed) to be Stacy from the Babysitters Club.  You don't have to look like you're in 6th grade anymore when wearing penny loafers!  They will look awesome with cuffed jeans or even a mini skirt with tights.

To loaf or not to loaf?  I wish I still fit into my pair from elementary school.

  18. umm, tell me you've read What Claudia Wore

    http://www.whatclaudiawore.com/

    It is a hilarious blog which breaks down that section in every Baby-Sitters Club book where each girl's clothing is described in detail. (ie the best part of every book).

    And in further "get outta my head" news for today, I was wearing my shiny penny loafers last week and actually went through my wallet, inspecting all of my change to see if i had any pennies shiny enough to go in my penny slot. (I didn't).
