The Gentlelady Edition: Fringed Loafers

I used to l-o-v-e fringes. I think I was about 20 years old, on my summer break from uni (I studied in New Zealand so summer break was a real thing, unlike in Malaysia) when my best friend bought these amazing black fringed sandals; I remember thinking those sandals have got to be the COOLEST. THING. EVAH.

I wanted them so bad that I immediately went to the same shop and got the same sandals, only in dark brown. They were pretty much all I wore that summer, and I was only ready to take them off when autumn got too cold for bare toes - and continue to wear them out to their death as the weather got warmer again!

I never really dipped back those same toes into anything fringey, until I discovered these fringed loafers, all glorious in its fringe-iness at a Mango outlet - just waiting for me. I'll be honest, they are nowhere near as comfortable as my Stan Smiths but you know what, I feel kind of like a darn cool gentlelady and even totally shabby chic at the same time whenever I have them on - and dare I say, a lot cooler than my 20-year-old self in those fringed sandals.

Stealing this chambray shirt from Shah's closet and matching it with my Japanese culottes to go with these loafers (the delish fruity drink in the cup made a cute accessory, too, not gonna deny).

Wearing: Pull & Bear men's shirt  |  Ciaopanic culottes  |  Mango fringed loafers  |  Natural Beauty Basic clutch (first seen with my Manchester United x Adidas sweater!)


  1. Those are some exceptionally classy shoes Liyana! They have a little of the golf shoe vibe as well and that's a classic gentle person's game:)! My husband is a golfer and I always LOVE his shoes!
    The rest of your outfit is great. I really like the plaid hijab with the denim shirt (so fall). I'm still undecided about the clotted but you look darling my dear!!

    1. Some of my family members do play golf but I never actually paid attention to their golfing outfits, but now that you mentioned it, it'll be interesting for me to study some now, especially their shoes!

      Glad you like the hijab with the shirt; I've always loved that deep red and that bright blue together. Do you mean my culottes? When I was in Japan, these culottes were what practically every girl wore, and they weren't even big anywhere else, so even I took some time getting used to them! By the time my trips ended, I had about four of them with me, hahaha! I'm actually hunting for more now, but Japan really had the best of the best.

  2. Great outfit, mashaallah :D I have the same scarf in pink. :)

    Salams from England,

  3. Salam Philippa,

    Thank you thank you <3
    In pink! It must look lovely =) I have this scarf in blue too, but I prefer this red. Would love to see a pink one, though!
