  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. I am looking at the lapano as my next purchase but I have a very classic style style accented with more stylish accessories. For example, the leggings trend is cute but isn't me and I don't do skirts w/ colored or opac tights. A lot of my clothes are suits, cashemere sweaters, jeans, blazers, button up shirts etc.

    I love the Lapanos but because they are not the classic pump shape I am used to, I am not sure what else to wear with them but jeans. Are they more trendy in the way they fit with more trendy clothing styles or do you think you can make them look classic? If so, what would you pair with them?
    thanks!
     
  2. ^^ I definately think you could wear them with skirts and dresses. However, according to some of the ladies here they arn't the most comfortable style so if you are hoping to wear them often they might not be the best choice.
     
  3. I think its resemblance to a classic loafer means it would actually work with suits and the like. I've never tried this style on though.
     
  4. bump ;) play virtual dress up with me. I need styling ideas on these shoes to determine if they will fit in my wardrobe. I am super torn. Thanks!
     
  5. But .. the name is Lapono.. right ?
     
  6. ^^^ yes
     
  7. ^^Yes, Lapono. OP, this style runs very very small. Depending on your foot I would go 1/2 to a full size up.
     
  8. I went up a size and a half and still had to have them stretched!
     
  9. Thanks, ladies. I decided to pass. I know they won't fit (they were only a 1/2 size bigger than my Rolandos). Thanks anyway!
