Heeled Oxfords and Penelope

I have been wanting to post about one of my favorite movies for a while now, but, being a procrastinator, I'm only now getting around to it...

The movie is Penelope staring Christina Ricci and James McAvoy. Penelope's style in it is so beautiful and feminine, that I love it all.

For this post, though, I especially wanted to point out my favorite outfit in it. I did several Google searches to find a picture of it, but, unfortunately, I could not find any good ones.
I did, however, notice another lovely aspect of her style. She wears a lot of heeled oxfords, which I love! I only noticed them once or twice the first few times I saw it, and I didn't even know what they were called. I just knew that I loved those shoes! Today, however, while looking through the screenshots, I realized that she really wears them quite often, and that I now know what they are! I have seen them many times before on Some Girls Wander, which I have been reading (and admiring) regularly the past couple weeks.



Penelope Again

Emily Again

The shoes are so old-fashioned and lady like, yet fun and creative with the colored tights. They're so elegant, and yet they are casual enough to wear for no reason in particular. I don't know what it is, but I just love these shoes. And I now I desperately want some. As soon as I can find the right pair, you can be sure I shall drag my dad over to the computer and make him help me order them!


  1. I haven't seen that film, but will have to look out for it!

    A xx

  2. Wonderful comparison. I still have yet to see the film, but I keep hearing wonderful things about the style in it.

  3. I've see the film and I also love her style, it's so delicate and feminine. I want a pair too! ^-^


  4. You should definitely check out Barbara Stanwyck's movies from the 40's...just jam packed with inspiration:) I also love these colorful clothes and shoes from the film and Some Girls Wander...great post!

  5. I love getting inspiration from movies, too.. especially from the least likely sources!

    and t-strap heels are gorgeous. really versatile.

  6. No, I haven't seen Penelope yet, but my library definitely has it...I'll have to check it out soon. Thanks for the tip!

  7. Emily's style is amazing. I still need to see that movie. I found your blog though Sally Jane and I am glad I did. Come by mine when you get a chance, I am always open to new followers, lol

  8. Emily's outfits!!! Oh my goodness, just perfect - I'm drooling!

  9. I love the movie Penelope, probably one of my favorite films. Her style was so amazing and the story was so cute!

  10. Oh, I loved her style in that film! Her coat, especially. I have been trying to hunt down a pair of green mary-jane pumps just like the ones she frequently wears throughout the film! No luck thus far, however =(!
