Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
I like them except for the punching detail , I agree with the right outfit the Tod style looks good and tbh I am 50 and I am bloody middle aged but middle aged looking doesn't always mean frumpy . I prefer to think of middle age as time to embrace the classics
Agree with you there ggirl - though often like to introduce something a bit quirky/ with a twist as well, eg through scarf or necklace.
To sum up , I don't think I'm misguided to like some of the Tods-alike styles in Geox - or to like some Tods - but the punching doesn't work on that pair (plus I tthink a darker more 'classic' tan not that 'camel' is better).
slipshod, I had a look at those Pro-Drive on the website and liked them best of the tan R and B ones too. The bow feature is actually very like not only some Tods but a Geox pair I already have, though not in tan. But my local shop doesn't have them.
They did have Grand, but those aren't to my taste at all - IMO, they are just too classic - to the point of boring - with their metal trim. Admittedly both Tods and Geox still have plenty of loafers with that trim (though not the style in my OP, in fact) but I find them a bit dull now.
Did also see the Clarks ones - they're pretty but very low-cut and ballerina-like and I already have enough ballerinas.
Will continue search tomorrow at Covent Garden in the R and B and the Geox (for non-punched styles).
