Hello Wonda

I'm finally wearing the shoes I'd been obsessing over for the last six months today.
I first saw these oxfords in the July 2010 issue of Lucky Magazine and wanted to buy them that instant.
They weren't available at that time (of course) and I emailed people at Lucky and at G by Guess who both lied to me about when the shoes would actually be available.
I was so frustrated at the end of it that I didn't want to buy them on principal, even though I still really, really wanted them.
So thanks Santa.

Today I'm embracing the preppy side of the oxfords. I've never owned a pair before, and I love that they are a bit different from the average oxford, with the cut-outs and studs.

I think Oxfords are pretty cute in general, but these definitely stand out with the studs. Santa has good taste :0)

Preppy looks win me over EVERY TIME. I love it, almost as much as I love the fact that you're counting the days until the sunlight thing resolves itself.

I love that you added the broach to that blazer because it looks like a RL blazer. Can't lose with Ralph Lauren.

Cool shoes! I wore my oxfords today but they're just standard brown. I saw glitter oxfords too recently and now I'm so coveting oxfords with a bit of edge!
