well, it must be almost autumn again. so during the past year i bought and returned two different pairs of rachel comey oxfords. not to mention the year before that. lesson learned, no rachel comey shoes for me.
impulse had a pair of grey suede opening ceremony oxfords on sale last month, but i decided to pass on them.
i also coveted a pair of cut-out f-troupes, but bird didn't have them in my size.
so, what next?
take these frye oxfords, for example. i like the dark brown leather, but i'm less than thrilled by the back buckle.
i suppose i could keep scouring thrift shops (etsy and elsewhere), but my feet are too ornery for no-returns policies.
i like these tracey neuls, but i'm not sure the dark green color will work with my outfits. if i liked black more, i would definitely buy a pair of repettos, but apparently i have my heart set on dark brown. has anyone seen a pair of well-made, comfortable brown oxfords for under $300? i would love to have a pair of practical autmn shoes before i switch to my winter boots.
