Manshoes and Comics

I love it when girls appropriate men's style of dressing. Last year I went on a crazy search for men-styled oxford shoes but it was slim pickings out there for me (they are now everywhere of course). I did manage to score this sweet pair of "manshoes", though I admit that at first I thought they were a little too weird and sort of ugly but I think that's why I slowly fell in love with them. I couldn't stop thinking about them so after a couple months, I went back to the store and got them. But the real reason why I love them so much is because they remind me of the shoes worn by the dad from one of my favorite comic strips, Mafalda.

I think I must live in a completely made up fantasy world when all I ever do is take style cues from Judy Funnie and Mafalda's dad (he didn't have a name).

I LOVE the shoes. I covet the charcoal flannel/dark brown leather combo in all its forms. Great silhouette, too. The buckle adds something fun. Who made 'em?
