Ollie Ollie Oxfords

I know I've gushed about these before, but they deserve their own post! I looked everywhere for a great pair of oxfords. The problem with most of them is that they are too bulky or pointed, or they're patent or cheap looking. It really is difficult to find the perfect pair. A lot of people are calling jazz shoes "oxfords" which is incorrect. The jazz shoe is great, too ... but for an entirely different effect. Oxfords are much more sturdy and should be made with nice leather and have a slight heel. Basically a mens shoe, slenderized for a womans foot. Love it! 

These wing-tipped, lace-free oxfords are great with cigarette pants, leggings or even skirts [short or long, straight, but not a-line!] and even cuter with tights of any color! I can't get enough of these. I'm really wanting the cream colored pair for the spring ... nude pants and a sailor-esque shirt!! Ah!!

  1. Oh, I reallyreally love those. Heels are fabulous, but sometimes you need a more-practical-but-still-adorable shoe.

  2. yes! definitely. they were rough to break in, but now that the leather is formed to my foot, they're a dream!

  3. ooooh cream colored oxfords! Those sound absolutely adorable.

  4. cream and pistachio!!! i plan to wear these colors in the spring. mark my words.
