  1. VINCE. is offering an additional 25% off sale apparel, and additional 40% off sale shoes. Code is JANUARY. Most items are Final Sale or Return for Credit Only, so be aware :)

    If you are in the market for hightop bootie sneakers, I highly recommend. I've been wearing the Kelowna sneakers (in Pewter & Woodsmoke) since September, and love them. With the promo, they're just under $125. They're a shorter than the Newlyn hightops, which is great for shorter people like myself. However, there are a few sizes left in black Newlyns -- with 40% off they are about $90 which is amazing.

    For sizing, of course, everyone varies, but I find that Vince tends to run a bit large. I'm usually an 8.5 (sometimes 9), and I have an 8 in the Kelowna and Newlyn, but have tried the Bray on in the past in an 8.5 and that was fine, albeit a bit long. If you have narrow feet you might get a size smaller too.

    I've been wanting a pair of white leather loafers, and am considering getting the Bray flats. However, I'm not sure if they're weird -- is it too much plain solid the shoes have no detailing?

    I had considered the JC Academy loafers in Highland Mist, but the reviews saying they run narrow scared me off the final sale (and now my size is OOS anyway). Everlane is also an option, I suppose, but my experience with their loafers is they scuff SO easily.
