I'm in Maine right now on a half-assed vacation (read: can't stop checking and responding to work emails) but I took a break today to go to outlet-mecca Freeport with my family because the weather is horrible and thus, perfect for shopping.
After the requisite stops at L.L. Bean's and J.Crew I saw the Bass outlet out of the corner of my eye. I've been wanting classic Bass penny loafers for so long and here they were, buy one pair at $149 get two (two!) pairs free. I'm a cautious shopper, so rather than scoop up three pairs of new shoes at once I crowd sourced Instagram to help me pick out just one pair (for 60% off). I was torn between classic black and burgundy with tassels. But the response on Instagram was overwhelmingly clear: It was tassels FTW.
Get them here.
