oxfords and stripes

saint james striped shirt

handmade oxfords

Two exciting purchases that were waiting for me when I got back from spring break. I finally got the Saint James Minquiers top in ecru/marine that I'd been wanting and it fits like a dream! I'm looking at a couple other color combinations but need to take it easy with spending money for a while. I also received these handmade oxfords that I'd ordered from Goldenponies on Etsy. When I'd first seen Erandi's store I thought it was too good to be true but I went ahead and ordered a pair anyway. I've been wearing them all day and so far so good. Maybe I'll try them out without laces like Anabela with her pair of gold ones. Thanks Teresa for finding that link!

Yeah! It's worth trying. They're really lovely in white.

I'm trying to get my shopowner friend to carry Saint James -- wish me luck, ha!

Did you end up purchasing online? I realized that J. Crew and Madewell were carrying different styles of St. James shirts but neither one fit me properly.

Can't wait to see you wear these new pieces! They look so perfect.

Love both of those purchases, stripes always look so fresh and those shoes, well I wouldn't trust myself to be able to keep them clean and tidy but I can't wait to see how beautifully you style them.

Oh man! I've been lusting after that very same Saint James shirt for soooo...long. The design is pretty simple and I know I could make a good knock off. But I really want the actual thing...Le sigh.

By the way, cute oxfords.

i just brought some shoes exactly like that - i think they are the same ones !?!

Abra said...

So I glanced at that etsy shop to see the specs about these shoes... and ohmygosh I can't believe the price.

How's the quality? Do you still like them?? I would love to add a pair (maybe the beige? I'm not sure yet) to my own collection... :)
