Someday we'll know why the sky is blue


The sun is setting earlier and earlier, so the best we could do was substitute natural sunlight with a porch light! It was pitch black outside while we were taking these photos and my photoshop skills are subpar, so excuse the wonky lighting, haha.

I've gotten tons of questions about these ALDO loafers. I purchased them in a size 8 (38, according to ALDO), and after wearing them for an hour or two at the American Apparel warehouse sale last month, I was limping around with blister.! They definitely need to be broken in, especially because the black trim around the shoes are very stiff. I stuffed the toe and heel area tightly with newspaper and left them in for two days. I then wore them around the house for a few hours with a pair of thick socks, and now they fit like a dream! They don't pinch anywhere, and the trim no longer rubs up against my ankle bone.

I've heard about stuffing wet newspaper into shoes but I've never tried it before. Usually I do the whole ziplock baggie full of water then freeze trick. Love this whole outfit - definitely something I'd wear!

I meant to comment on this post earlier but I keep forgetting, but I just love this outfit. I don't get the hype about the leopard loafers but I think you pull them off effortlessly.

I meant to ask how the Steve Madden ones fit! I've seen a ton of bloggers purchase the SM version.

Joanna said...

Me too! This is my first time using the newspaper method. I used to just wear two pairs of socks, but it definitely took a lot longer.

Joanna said...

Thanks E! You're right, there was a HUGE craze for the leopard loafers.. I think it was the combination of pony hair + leopard print that did it.

The lighting isn't wonky at all, I think it compliments the outfit really well ;) Dude, I love the double leopard action going on in this outfit. I'm still waiting for those loafers to go on sale (HURRY UP, ALDO!!!) and I know what you meant about the stiffness. I tried them at the store and boy, it felt like wearing a pair of bricks. Regardless, they're so pretty and I still want them BADLY <3

I love the look.. and those loafers too. Glad you were able to berak them in. :) I wish I could order them from Aldo, but they don't ship to Hawaii! It's strange that they don't because we have an Aldo store on Oahu (I live on Maui). Bummed.

Anyhoo, glad I found your blog. Lovin' your styleee girl. Will be back to visit for sure. :)

xx Love & Aloha

Love this whole look! The red top and leather pants are so chic :)

Joanna said...

The plain ones are on sale online! I don't know if the leopard/cow print ones will ever go on sale since they were so popular.. I had to go to three different ALDOs before I finally found my size.
