Detail of the Week: Black Patent Oxfords

Black Patent Oxfords - ALDO

When it's not too cold out (and it hasn't been this past week) I like to wear these patent brogues in lieu of my everyday winter boots. I had a pair of cutout oxfords that I wore to pieces (most literally) and I had to send them on their way this past spring. It took me quite some time before I found a pair that looked sturdy enough to last more than one season on my feet, as I tend to be rather tough on my shoes. I like them best paired with tights and a patterned skirt or dress to contrast their traditional masculinity, and their heels tend to make a satisfying clicking sound as I walk down the sidewalk.


  1. so cute! i love my brogues! i think one of the best piece of clothing we've stolen from the guys. :)

  2. It was a lovely day to shoot! And That's funny because I was actually in University City for a bit! Around 2. =]


  3. I literally just saw these at aldo and was contemplating getting them... they are fab!


    1. I like them a lot! They're much more sturdy than I had anticipated, most likely due to their thick heel. I'd most definitely recommend them!

  4. So cute! I love the clicks of heels, but I always dread the stares as I walk down the hallway or even campus sidewalk. Mostly stares from the people that wear gym shorts and tennis shoes to class. Needless to say, we're a little different, haha.
