I had been looking for a simple pair of flat black mules — leather slippers, essentially — for awhile. But until recently, I had yet to find a pair that was in my price range and also didn't look too much like actual slippers, the kind you would only wear in your own home. Enter Urban Outfitters, which usually skews too young for me, but every now and then seems to have just what I'm looking for at the price I need it to be.
Cooperative leather mule, now $49, available at Urban Outfitters.
