Day 11: Oxford Booties
I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving Day! I am still stuffed from yesterday, but I have lots of food to nibble on for the next few days.
Chamele loves Oxford Booties. I do too!
The oxford is one of this seasons biggest trends. Last season found young ladies in flat oxfords and no socks with dresses and pants alike. This season’s trend combines the bootie of past seasons and the lace-up oxford for the ultimate in menswear inspired dressing- the oxford bootie. While I find the flat oxfords absolutely adorable, I tend to stick to heels. Even at 5’7 I am still on a quest to elongate my legs.
A good friend with an amazing shoe closet purchased a pair of lace-up oxfords to wear with jeans and button-downs. She picked an incredible wine color that was sporty and unique. I was green with envy at her wine colored purchase, the Nine West Trixy shown below. The Trixy is a lace up oxford with a 3. 5 inch heel. It comes black leather, dark gray and brown leathers $87.16 at Zappo’s.
Some other spins on the trend include the Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan “Air Swan” Oxford Pump, $228.00 at Dillards. The Air Swan is a patent leather version of the oxford bootie that is topped with the velvet bow. A great dress-up shoe to keep the tickies warm.
Anthropologie also carries a purple suede oxford, the Caladoc Heel, for $228.00.
