oxfords.


Remember my obsessing over oxfords here and here?  Well, a vintaging trip this weekend proved to be successful at last.  This pair has a bit more of a heel and pointy toe than I originally thought I was searching for, but when I saw them… it was love at first sight.  I'm thinking about substituting brown ribbon for laces.  And, oh yeah, they cost less than $10.   Perfection. 




On a side note: I thought at first that these might eventually make it to the store, but after wearing them to work today I promptly decided that they would not.  I don't know how good I'm going to be at this whole online store thing.  Knowing me, I'll probably end up keeping most of the inventory for myself.

I love the idea of using ribbon instead of laces - it just makes everything seem more sumptuous...maybe thats just me, I have a small ribbon obsession.

Emily, I agree with you! I found a pair on Etsy about a month back with ribbon for laces and they were perfect.... except 3 sizes too small!
