Schoolmarm


Sometimes life's a bitch, but other times fortune tends to smile on you and you (or me at least) turn into a mushy-gushy optimist for the time being until another crappy thing comes along. Its no secret that I love brogues. Its also no secret that I can't find a decent pair - until yesterday when I was browsing through the racks and unearthed a heavenly pair of Via Spiga oxford heels in Winners.


Yes, they were a tad pricey and a half size to big but I couldn't leave something so perfect behind. I don't think that 'heaven incarnate' is too strong a term to apply to these shoes.

They look sharp! I don't know how you manage to wear something that's too big though. That would drive me crazy.

I saw a similar pair by Camper and I'm taking a day to think if I buy them or not...they are also pricey, but I think I'm in love!!!!

It was meant to be! What a great find, I never have such luck when I shop at Winners. They look great on you:)

Whoah they are so, so cool. Congratulations for finding them! When I bought a pair ages ago, the dude in the shop was all like, it doesnt matter if they're too big length-wise as long as your foot doesn't fall out when the laces are tied, you'll be sweet.

Miss Woo said...

Am sooooo ENVIOUS of the perfect brogues. Plus, you can also put shoe pads in them to stop them from being too big!
