This season, oxfords are, no doubt, a good way to break the monotony of the ballerinas and the ubiquity of the Mary Janes. In a recent post, I had surmised that for those of us for whom heels higher than 2 inches hold no appeal whatsoever, the selection in terms of oxfords is pretty dismal. Well, it appears, in the words of the inimitable Dr. Perry Cox, that I’ve been wrong wrong wrong wrong, wrong wrong wrong wrong (for non-Scrubs fans: sing that along the Big Ben chime. Trust me, it’s funny).
So who else but Anthropologie can give us girls who value our comfort at least as much as our trendiness some very chic options in terms of oxford-wear? Take for example these peep-toe beribboned shoes from TN_29 ($228):
I know what you’re going to say–how to wear these?–but have faith: they really do look great on this model, who wears them here with a knee length skirt and bare legs:
See? Told you so!
I’ll also take a high wedge over a high heel any time, too, so I’m kinda attracted to these metallic wedge oxfords from Rafe, $298 at Anthropologie:
I love the tasseled ties adn how they can pass off as booties. Also love the shimmery leather, which has a hint of lunar melancholy in it.
