From top: Toast; The Alcazar, Seville; Reed Krakoff; Streetfsn

Those Toast loafers started my sudden appreciation for this sandy hue. Suddenly, lovely pictures of honey-hued beauties kept showing up. Isn't the Streetfsn shot by Nam such a great moment?

Oh dear. I love love love those loafers. I would order them in a heartbeat if it came in my size. Darn it!

Love those loafers.
I only really discovered Streetfsn recently and he captures such great moments. It's my go-to site in fashion week!

The loafers look really nice!! I rarely open Toast's newsletter to avoid temptations, seems I can't escape it though...

beige is a huge visual comfort!
i was thinking that about the beige used in the photo you posted in the previous post (the wood, the wall and the glow of the skin). the color plays an accessory to the black clothing.
new header!

the color is perfect. i love honey-colored/camel/beige loafers! my black loafers feel a bit grandma-ish at times, but i bet these don't!

I really love those loafers! I'd like to have a similair pair in black. Too bad the ones from toast have a brown sole and they aren't exactly cheap too.

Great loafers, looks like they will age gracefully and beautifully! Camel is a nice color regardless of the season.

Amanda: My size hasn't hit stores either, but I;m doubtful as to whether I will buy shoes over the Internet - too much pain to ship back, esp when shipping is GBP30!

Alexandra: Yes his pictures are quite beautiful, although I always find the colours a bit strange - too intense somehow. But so many beautiful moments captured.

Aissa: In spite of myself, I always look...

editor: Incidentally, I like beige in the home, and not really on myself. Light wood floors and accents, curtains, cushions, upholstery, it is comforting.

Yes, new header: I didn't even have those shoes anymore, and wanted a header that didn't fight with my photo posts so much...

Fleurette: Yes, these do have a daintier feel with the lower vamp and the slightly sharper toe. The colour is going to age so beautifully. I am so tempted...

heart in a cage: I just noticed the brown sole of the black ones, they do look a little odd now that you mentioned it; but perhaps all black would look too severe. I had a pair of Toast flats years ago...if these are as well made and as comfortable, they're not a bad investment; loafers last so long with protective soles. Apparently they are Italian-made, if that means anything...

Nanashi: The idea of the colour weathering nicely makes me ache slightly with desire, haha.

this kind of buttery, caramel colour is literally the most popular colour in my wardrobe. I have shoes, pants, (4) jumpers, shirts, jackets and skirts in this colour. It's my black. I actually have more of this colour than any other colour. I love it so much!

may i say...yeah. ;)
lin said…
fashion tidbits: done :)

hannah-rose: i wish i looked better in the colour! i just save it for accessories - beige just makes me look ill, unless it's in a lighter, almosy khaki hue.

if jane: still dreaming!

The loafers look perfect and I adore the colour, it would go with everything. I haven't used my loafers quite enough in the past but I will definitely give them a new chance this spring.
I loved your Cartier watch, stunning.
They are having a "beige off." ;) Now that I'm looking have pumps in the color of the 1st pair of shoes. They are the most comfortable pair of heels I own. I can't wear beige clothing though as it washes me out completely.

I adore those brogues..like Pret a Porter P though I have issues with finding the perfect shade of beige against my skin.x

Those are great shoes!

wow! I love this! Great shoes!
lin said…
Pret a Porter P: "Beige-off", I love that! I think beige is manageable if I keep it further from my face. But yep, not my choice of colour to wear, although beautiful for accessories.

Milly: The closer it is to sand, it better for me, I find. Otherwise, sticking to shoes is a pretty safe bet!

t, cecylia: If only I could try them on to see how they fit!
asha said…
Ok- you just found my ideal loafers. I am fairly sure I will actually buy these. Did you buy them??
lin said…
asha: I did not - they only became available on 5 march anyway. I'm not sure about buying shoes without trying them on and the shipping is rather steep. May be if I am still thinking of them at the end of the month, I'll risk it...
