How This Style Pro Modernizes The Iconic Penny Loafer

It's hard to believe that Steffy Kuncman ever thought no one would read her style blog, Steffy's Pros and Cons. Truth be told, between snaps of her adorable little daschund and her vintage-inspired flare, we find it hard going a week without peeking at her posts. Our guess is that her day job as a visual merchandiser at J.Crew has something to do with it. Yep, that's probably it.
The 26-year-old Long Island native finds time before work and on the weekends to post outfit pics on her blog, so it's clear she loves a good challenge. That's why our friends at G.H. Bass & Co. asked her to create two modern outfits with its two-toned and candy-colored steppers, which — spoiler alert — she pulled off with aplomb.

"I am going for a walk with my daschund, Claude, to get a cup of iced coffee on Lincoln Road in South Beach! With a high-waisted pleated skirt and a Peter Pan collared top, I was going for a vintage-inspired Parisian-chic look. Something casual, but still stylish."
