Oxford is also the name of this Hot Guy, who was part of an Esquire thing @ LFw. (And, in an unrelated weird coincidence, my husband, Mr. Dot, used to be publisher of said magazine). I shot the whole trilogy, but you'll see that another time: don't want too much of a good thing all at once, do we, girls? (or, boys).
Speaking of cute guys in suits, can't wait til 10:00, Greenwich Mean Time: next installment of Mad Men!
Thank you for your sweet get well comments (you know who you are), it's really worked. That, and Migraleve. (And while we're at it, thank God for Mr. Dot, who brought them home for me). I'm almost feeling human again, but I lost the day. Oh well, as Scarlett O'Hara would say, luckily tomorrow is another one.
Speaking of Oxford, I'm hoping we'll go there Saturday for the literary festival. Also, speaking of oxfords, as we used to call them in the US of A, I really want a new pair. Or rather, BROGUES, as they call them here. Odd, but after all, the French don't call them french fries, do they? Or, for that matter, french toast.
p.s.: Didn't know at the time, but Jen, the Style Crusader, has posted on Kate Kanzier's fabulous & really cheap oxford/brogues ('dear mom, i need some new shoes...'. I'm dying to know what the catch is, & am meeting her there tomorrow, before our 1st Cupcake Friday in Covent Garden. If you're in town, you're invited, Cupcakes! Meanwhile, can't decide between the jade green & the blue.. or perhaps the nude pair..
