It must be fate!

After reading Angie's post on flat oxfords this morning I remembered how much I liked my Hush Puppies yellow and white oxfords last summer and how they were able to elevate any outfit to the next level (in my eyes anyway) - here are some samples (pic 1-3).
I was just thinking how I like Angie's black and white oxfords and where can I find a similar pair for summer (not an easy task for my size)...
...when I opened Long Tall Sally website and what I find there in new arrivals? More Hush Puppies oxfords in new colors (pic 4-6)
This must be fate! I think I NEED another pair of oxfords, what do you think? Now if only I can decide on the color...Tan? Black? Raspberry?

    Can you order both the tan and the black and after playing around in your closet - decide which works best with your capsules?

    Your oxford outfits are great, love how versatile the shoes are. I would go with the b&w if they were for me because I love high contrast. The tan would be a great neutral though (though they are more similar to your other pair). Another pair will be a great addition to your fabulous wardrobe!

    I'd go with b&w but would also (for me) be tempted by the raspberry as a fun colour. But you already have the yellow for that pop of fun. The yellow also works (paradoxically) as an almost nude for you neutral...the tan might function in a similar way. So if you are going for something a bit different and graphic, the b&w is the ticket.

    It will look fab, by the way, with your new white Danier leather jacket!! :-)

    Black or tan.

  • MNsara replied 7 years ago

    Tan or black. But I was thinking like Suz, that the tan might be pretty similar to your yellow.

    Lucky you -- with no work at all -- it really WAS meant to be ;-)

    Angie, this is what I decided: I will buy both tan and black and see which play better...or maybe I need both? :-) I also thought about raspberry ones but decided that I already have a fun yellow pair and raspberry will not expand my choices as much as black or tan.
    Tina, thanks. My first thought was black and white too, we will see...

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    Suz, you enabler, you! My first thought was"Raspberry, what fun!" but then I thought exactly like you :-)
    Thanks Deb, looks like black or tan is the way to go for me.
    Sara, I know, right? How can one resist the fate?

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    I'm excited, Sveta!!

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    Angie, I had to restrain myself from not running to the store in the middle of the work day!
    Unlike for Danier leather jackets I never wait for sale for shoes...better safe than sorry! :-)

    Yay, so glad Hush Puppies granted your wish. I am envisioning the b/w version working and maybe an all-tan version will appear for you someday. :)

    I vote tan because it is not as harsh when bookending your hair. I find for summer clothes when I often sport lighter colors lighter shoes work best.

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    I think you will love the black/white (or the brown if it is dark enough) as very different from your yellow version. I love how the yellow ones look on you.

    You really look cute in #2.

    All look great- looking forward to your outfits, 'cause I have recently purchased some in mid-blue and need your inspiration for styling:)
