oxfords: yay or nay?

I'm going to put it out there.
I just cannot get on board with the oxford trend.
On paper, they make sense. They're a throwback.
What's old is new.
A bit hipster.
Whatever. They're not cute.
They make your feet look like a hoagie sub.
BLAH.

WRONG.

Almost but no.

BOO.

The best of the bunch.. but still not great.

What do you think? Have you been wearing oxfords? Are you planning to in the fall?
Heading to NYC today! More on that tomorrow! : )
xoxo

I'm on the fence with these. I see them in the shop and I want a pair but I have no clue how I'd wear them. I have little feat so they would be cute (ish) but still!

Ehh... I can't get on board either. Maybe if I was a double 00 and 5'9 I could pull it off... but that isn't the case.

Heather said...

I say NAY for sure!!

Kerr said...

I am with you, I just don't like them. I'll put my shoe money somewhere else!

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

I am a fan. Maybe cuz I live here and I am part hipster wanna be? hah.

I will wear them especially for you tonight! AHAHAH!

I'm not a huge fan of menswear altogether. I like boyfriend watch, jeans, a couple others, but these oxfords are just no bueno. Sienna pulls them off with something girly. But if you wear it with anything mannish, it looks TOO mannish. You're not alone!

I like the blue ones, I definitely like that look the best.

I think they are really cute but haven't found a pair that don't feel like they wouldn't eat my feet up in under a minute... Blisters suck and I'm not willing to risk it from the shoes I've found.

Holly said...

haha i love how karla is in the mix with all the celebs!

Jenni said...

hahaha I agree!!! I am NOT a fan :) Have fun in New York!!!!!

Katy Mary said...

Eeesh, I think they're SLIGHTLY only cute if you have small feet ;-) They ALMOST look okay on Seinna (is that her in the last pic?) That is my opinion!! ;-)

Hilary Lane said...

Thumbs down!

Claire Kiefer said...

Jealous you get to go hang out with Summer and as for Oxfords? NO MA'AM!

Nicole Marie said...

i have a pair. not like those though. just normal brown ones not pointy. they're super comfy

Lace said...

I'm only okay with that last pair that Sienna has on. The ones in the first pic. are just gross. She just looks awwwwful altogether in that picture. Woof.

Jenny DB said...

totally agree. wrong wrong wrong!

The Backseat Stylers said...

OMG, I am LIVING In oxfords this summer. I've totally jumped on the bandwagon and am loving every minute of it! I've managed to find narrow, feminine-looking ones that don't make my feet look huge. Maybe it's just about finding the right pair?

Elle said...

Nope. There are probably hundreds of other shoes I'd rather spend my money on. I have a feeling the trend will be short lived! :)

Erica said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! I thought I was the only one! My wide size 8 feet do not need to look any bigger! Cute on others not so much on me.
