You know it’s true love when I actually take it down a few inches and go for a flat. It happens so rarely (dreams of 5’10” supermodeldom still exist). Well, meet Dieppa Restrepo, a long time love interest of mine. 
Best known for their candy coloured loafers and brogues, Dieppa Restrepo is a brainchild of Andrea Vargas Dieppa and Elisa Restrepo, two friends that met while studying at Parsons. The brand brings sleek gentleman style over to our side, at a reasonable price. Perfection, I know. 

The only problem is that they are almost impossible to track down. See, almost no one online carries them, and when they do, the sizes are super picked over. Seattle’s Totokaelo has a couple, like these ‘Breezy Cali’ brougues in a pretty lilac colour. And, finally, they are now available in Vancouver at One of a Few, although not in fun candy colours.  
$175 (on sale from $260) for lilac at Totokaelo and $260 for brown at One of a Few in Vancouver.
PS. Although I really want the baby blue loafers. If you find them, let me know!
