what did we want: oxfords...

IMG_9060

so i found this really really great pair of shoes today while randomly walking past stores killing time. off white (cream? light beige?) laced oxfords, slightly pointed toes with pinhole decoration and made of lamb leather...

i don't usually advocate the killing of innocent animals for clothes or fashion. but these were really soft, fit perfectly, were adorable and i could see myself wearing them with anything....

of course this all leads up to me saying i didn't buy them. they cost $716 HKD ($92.38 USD) (which is a really random number to me) which is usually too much for shoes for me. i've never bought shoes that expensive before. no really. i don't. i know that shoes are supposed to be an investment etc but i couldn't bring myself to do it. (also i didn't have that much money on me)

i'm still thinking about them and i would ask rather i should get them or not...but i don't know what answer i want...

uh im just gonna say no for now. if going for oxford style, get oxford heels. and if you want shoes like with flatten sole, that go for lacoste or sperrys, probably just as expensive.

ahaha i can't wear heels. i can't stand the pain of em.

and no worries. not purchasing shoes for $700. : ) any kind of shoes at all. there are other things that money can go towards...
