Ever since spotting these extra-preppy tasseled loafers on the lovely Emily Schuman (of Cupcakes and Cashmere), I’ve been dreaming of how on earth I could incorporate such structured flats into my somewhat edgier wardrobe.  I like studs and leopard print, black-on-black, lace, not tassels and perforated leather. But I can’t get the lovely tasseled flats out of my head.
