This will probably show my age, but I'm old enough to have lived thru one wave of brogues (or, oxfords). Actually, just between us girls, I never stopped wearing them. So I'm pleased as punch they're back, in every colour of the rainbow, with all kinds of variations.*
It's a bit like cupcakes: they've always been around, it's just right now, they seem to have captured our collective imagination. Why is that? Why is everyone saying 'oooh, brogues, I want a pair!' or 'I love your brogues'. Or rather, why aren't they going all gaga over flat ballet pumps? Does anyone remember spring of 2006 was it? Or 2007? We couldn't get enough of cute little ballet pumps. I still love them, but right now, it's lace ups for me.
I'll be posting shots of my trip with Jen - then again with Shini & Kit - to Kate Kanzier. Soon as I eventually upload the photos. What is WRONG with me? I'm such a lazy, lazy cow.
*(I'm not claiming that crazy heels, clogs, platforms, wedges, or especially, mad gorgeous colourful little booties aren't going to be huge this spring/summer. They will. We will love them more than ever, all these shoes, I promise you. We will lust after them and dream of wearing ankle boots with bare legs and little dresses. But what will we REALLY wear? Brogues. And then, flip flops. Mark my word!)
