The oxford-style shoe seems to be everywhere these days... at all price points, colors, and heel heights.
When I first saw an oxford heel used in a fashion editorial, I really liked the look it created, but I was convinced that I would never be able to work it into my wardrobe. Then I happened to stumble across darling Camille at Childhood Flames, who has become a great source of fashion inspiration to me. She definitely knows how to rock this look (although her oxford of choice happens to be a pair of 4 1/2 inch YSL platforms).
She has the confidence of someone FAR beyond her years, and speaks of wearing what you like, and not worrying about the criticism of others. That said, I don't want to be the laughing stock of Kansas City (which happens to more fashion forward than you might think, but possibly not far along enough to truly embrace such a shoe).
What do we think? I really like the way Camille has styled them, and would end up pairing them with similar things (more of a Fall look), but my fear is that if I wore these, I would come off as disgustingly trendy. That is something I Do. Not. Want. Also, could I pair these with something a little more summery? Would a dress and bare legs be too stark?
Feel free to be honest and share your opinions with me... I always look so forward to hearing your thoughts!
*** James, you HAVE to comment on this one... I need your fashion advice! Also, I am seriously on the hunt for a great line for men (especially for you, my only male reader besides Dad) and hopefully I will be posting soon!
