Penelope and Coco



If you've followed my blog for long, you'll know that I'm an animal when it comes to oxfords. I just can't get enough of 'em! Sky high heels are quite impractical for my everyday life, not to mention uncomfortable and obnoxious (when I walk in them, at least), so I made the decision a few months back to stop wearing them for outfit photos, too (except on occasion!). As much as I'd love to wear a nice pair of Jeffery Campbell clogs, and as slimming as they'd probably make my legs look in that one dress, I just can't do it.

That's why I love Penelope and Coco so much. Their selection of oxfords and boots is great! For the first time in my life I'm taking nicely to leopard print things, and I actually don't mind the hot pink oxfords either! The outfit styling in the lookbook is such a treat, too. And hey, they're not Japanese either. I managed to slip an American label in there. Whatayaknow!

I'll be back tomorrow with a giveaway! xo.

So interesting to hear what other people's takes on heels are! For some reason I find them really comfortable and would wear them over flats any day... but maybe it's because I'm shorter and heels make my legs look longer, hence making me look taller! These are really cute oxfords.

Love the cardigan 2nd row down on the left.

With heels Im a halfa a day kinda girl, I come to work in flats, slip on heels at my desk, go to lunch/slip on flats & usually forget to put heels back on once I return.

Hot damn! I love it all! .... Reminds me of Miu Miu, which I like, but also has that cool J Crew layering and sparklyness to it, with a vintage feel.

GIMME!

You know I'm so with you on the heels thing (my ankles give way in flats lots of times too). Oxfords are the best!
