who gives a **** about an oxford comma?

there were photos online this week of katie holmes trotting around new york in camel and black oxfords (above). fancy that, since i bought the exact same camel pair this week! ok, so hers are probably chloe and mine are gravity pope, but still... someone got a better deal (ps. it was me!)

how to wear: with everything. they look especially cute with rolled-up BF jeans, skinnies, short dresses or skirts (with or without tights). try to balance the menswear look with something feminine.

i'm going to keep this category a little loose, so call them what you will: oxfords, brogues, wingtips, derbys, spectators, jazz shoes... they're all cute.

This is breaking my heart. I had the most gorgeous pair but alas, my puppy destroyed them.

Ack! Maybe this is a sign I should head out and get some new ones.
