But why can't a woman be more like a man?

 I bought some lovely new shoes at the weekend, what do you think? I've wanted a pair of manly brogues for a while now, and they seem to be everywhere at the moment so I had my pick of styles. I went for these classic black ones from Schuh. I've been wearing them all day at work today, and I have to admit though - my male friends may have a point when they say their work shoes are just as painful as heels! These will need a few carefully placed plasters until I wear them in properly!
 
What are your thoughts on menswear inspired fashion?

*first comment dance!*

I am sad that they pain you but I love brogues. I remember some pretty awesome pink ones from Irregular Choice I had my eyes on a few years ago but never ended up buying...

These are lovely. And the barely there brown contrast of the sole is nice too! xx

I absolutely LOVE brogues and I where mine to death! They are brown and manly!! Yours are beautiful too though . . .

I LOVE these! Im a BIG fan of brogues and these are indeed a snazzy pair, shame about them rubbing you... I'm sure these will be the first of many manly brogues you buy!

I think these are super cute!

I love them, those look lovely, well worth the plasters!

I really like these. I actually think they're really elegant, more so that high heels which can look so awkward. Love the quite too - I'd marry Henry Higgins tomorrow! x

I still haven't bought a pair of brogues... I like the fact that womenswear is influenced by menswear, but I'm just so girly that I don't think I could pull it off!

Perhaps you need to wear socks till you break in this pair?

Love brogues...
I think they are a super (modern) alternative to ballet flats...
Good luck breaking them in...I know they'll be worth it!

looove brouges and menswear inspired style. it doesnt suit my bodyshape very well thou, which is a shame. i have a pair of beat up vintage charcoal grey brogues that are a size too small im currently trying to stretch out. i refuse to give up just yet!

meanwhile, im in love with your blog. seriously, where have you been all my life?!

A woman can't be like a man because there's nothing more precious and sensuous than the Feminine. Love these gorgeously masculine-feminine shoes;-)

So cute! I've been looking for oxfords forever. I think menswear is great, especially paired with something super feminine!

Love a bit of menswear - androgyny always looks amazing but I can't pull it off!

I think brogues are lovely. My old boss used to have a gorgeous low heeled pair that were so cute.
