Forgot if I wrote about these before, but I recently bought a pair of saddle shoes from payless for $24 that I love.
Do you DARE to wear saddle shoes?
They could be seen as very Lolita-esque. But I think they are so cool and remind me of this whole thing I wrote about…Take Ivy style, 1940s and 50s style, prep school, cheerleaders, Vassar, and other cool things…in theory haha! In reality I went to a prep school and hated it.
Well, while google imaging Saddle Shoes for some style inspiration, I found an enormous amount of cool saddle shoe style inspiration. Now I am sold. The saddle shoe is a totally classic shoe, the sister of my beloved pennyloafer, according to the blog Take Ivy.
Here are some great photos to keep in mind if you chose to purchase a pair of saddle shoes:
on the cover of life magazine 1937!!
