Remember I asked you all about JCrew shoes because I was attracted to these flat oxfords? I have old Trouve oxfords which are falling apart and which were not as refined as I would liked and I have been looking for refined flat oxfords for 2 years without any luck.
Long story short I decided to pounce on JCrew oxfords when they had 30% sale and when they had free shipping and returns and they arrived last week. I was pretty sure they will be too narrow, not comfortable, etc. With trembling hands I removed them from the box and tried them on - and they were perfect fit for my wider forefoot and not pinching my toes even though the toe is almond. The leather is very soft quality and they were comfortable and not stiff at all. I still cannot believe that I got my HEWI and in this perfect off-white color!
I was also afraid that my feet wild look enormous in white flat oxfords but another surprise - I think they actually look good. My hubby also gave them a seal of approval - what more could I have asked for. Oh, and they are gone in my size now - I am so happy I pounced when I did!
I wanted to debut them today as they promise rain for the rest of the week. I was pouring over Angie's and Pinterest to figure out how to wear them with black skinnies (it was the only available trouser option for me). I even created a Pinterest board with loafers and oxfords outfits! Inthe end my solution came from one of the outfits in this Angie's post even though it is about loafers and not oxfords - but a gal has to be creative, right? I honestly think that flat oxfords work here as well as loafers would - what do you think?
I was not sure about the length of the trousers. They are full length skinnies but I felt like sporting crops or ankle pants today after Angie's post so here is a result. Leg shortening or not but I felt pretty good in this outfit all day (and was looking at my feet all the time admiring my new pets and thinking how lucky I was to gamble on them :-) )

Thank you for looking and sharing my HEWI finding joy with me!
