I am ballet flat lover, which has not left much room for oxfords in my closet. I have not worn or purchased an oxford shoe, maybe, since high school or freshman year in college. Oxfords are bit on the tomboy side, which I am not, but when I saw the Dolce Vita ‘Mini’ Cheetah Suede Oxford, I had to have them. Why?? Because of the cheetah-print and coral sole, which make the oxford more girly. Plus, they are tres comfortable and fun!!!
