Yves Saint Laurent Cardilam Loafer Pump, $1695 via Neiman Marcus
The Yves Saint Laurent Cardilam Loafer Pumps were one of the most buzzed-about runway shoes of the Spring 2012 shows, and now they’ve finally landed at one of our favorite retailers for your pre-ordering pleasure. Act fast, though; as of this writing, only three sizes are left!
Loafer pumps were a big look for Fall 2011, and this gold-plated version is chic and minimal in exactly the right way. It’s like the shoe has taken up armor against the daily battles it must fight, and if I have to carry a shield, I’d certainly want it to be Yves Saint Laurent. With the various Fashion Weeks coming up, look for these shoes to be gracing the feet of a lot of editors and retail buyers; they’re the perfect kind of shoe for someone who has a serious corporate job within the industry that requires a certain level of dress. If you are also a holder of a serious corporate job, in this industry or others, this shoe would be a great choice. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1695 – if they still have your size.
