fall trend alert: boyish oxfords for girls...

I know - its not even August yet. And I (mostly) hate to think about fall in the midst of such a glorious summer (am i right, Seattle?) But in my browsings of the August glossies and the various fashion blogs I frequent, there is one trend I cannot ignore. I also can't decide if I'm on board with it. Allow me to introduce you to what very well may become the new ballet flat: the oxford.

So OK, most of us don't have legs like that. But I'm trying to picture myself, circa mid-October, jaunting around Seattle (/New York City...) in those little black & white or gold things with dark skinny jeans and a slouchy grey sweater, Paris bag & americano in hand. Or what about with black tights and a dress? I kind of like it. I can see these as a nice transition between ballet flat season and boots/socks season. So what about you, my darling readers? Girls, are you into it? Guys, would you like to see a gal rocking these kicks? (Go ahead, vote & leave a comment, too. I dare you.)

Now give it to me straight - Oxfords for girls:
