I'm continually awed by the ability of brown leather shoes to transform an outfit from ordinary into ... not.

Whether your pair them with black skinny jeans, some high-waisted bodycon number, or a maxi skirt, like Libby here, they never fail to skyrocket what might ordinarily have been a
normal mundane ensemble (not that Libby's is - because nobody in their right mind would call her accessorizing mundane) into something a bit more visually intriguing.
They're like an insta-hipster-upgrade to whatever you happen to be wearing.
And Libby knows what's up. Probably because she spent a year in New York City for the Textile and Apparel Design program at UW-Madison. And we all know that everyone from NYC is cool. Generalizations are bad. I'm being funny. Laugh. hehe .
Anyhoot...here are a few of my fave leather foot-cladders from the past couple of months. So hopefully, next time you find yourself stuck in a relatively normal outfit and think, as I know you do, - how can I make this weirder? - maybe you'll consider this post and don a pair of cow-derived oxfords. (or feathers. feathers work too).
Hey - I have feet too.
In other breaking news: I'm headed to NYC-aka-the-land-of-the-cool-this-is-a-joke-but-not-really this afternoon.

I'll try to blog, but if Gosling sweeps me off my feet, no promises.
