I am obsessed with Janelle Monáe. I loved her EP back in 2008 (have you seen the Many Moons video? HOLY SHIT), and now that her LP, ArchAndroid has finally come out? I may never listen to anything else evar again. Sci-fi concept afropunk concept album about an android in love with a human?
…Pity my husband, ‘cuz that thing's been on repeat for the last month.
To honor Miss Monáe, I decided to focus on her signature footwear: oxfords. Because while brightly colored heels may be quirky, ain't nuthin' more offbeat than a pair of freaking OXFORDS sticking out from under your gown or, even better and more Monáe-ish, YOUR LADY-TUX! Let me see you Tightrope!

I've featured Miss Mooz shoes before, and I think it's time for another peek into their colorful, comfort-minded footwear. Offbeat Brides have said: "I heart... Read more
Comments on The truly offbeat bridal footwear for your android wedding: OXFORDS
I am a HUGE Janelle Monae Fan! I bough some shoes like that for myself recently because i saw her music videos and listened to her music and made myself believe that if i got some shoes like that I’d dance like her and have cool hair. Though such things didn’t necessarily happen, i still look awesome
I got her album two days ago and it’s been on repeat since! Amazing!
And the shoes! Also amazing! I don’t wear leather but those low-heel shoes are so subtly classy. Love.
O.o Those purple ones are to die for!
AGREED! SO cute! <3
i think this is my favorite shoe post yet! ugh I want those purple ones soooo bad… dfkjasd;flkjas well I’d just take them all if I could.
When I saw frickin’ JANELLE MONAE on this website I just about exploded with joy 😀
<3 <3 <3
Same here! Love her 😀
Just found her after a blog post on Jezebel. My god, she is so very awesome.
And I am a complete sucker for saddle shoes.
I LOVE this post! Thanks Ariel! I’m wearing oxfords at my wedding because we’re having a 30s/40s theme and they are amazing for swing dancing! Curse my compter for being down (I’m using my mobile) or I’d post a picture of these ivory & pink beauties! Who else is wearing these kick ass shoes?
The oxfords are so sexy!
Those white ones at the bottom are insane! I want so much!
the ones in the middle are LOVE, steampunky <3
Love Janelle Monae…danced to her at my own wedding. Sorry I had to share.
I just came across these beauties… http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Shoes/Mercury+Metallic+Heel …swoon.
I got the first ones a couple months ago for my Oct. wedding. Can’t wait to wear them!
I love the idea- but I would also love to see some vegan options! I could barely find anything on the net….
*SWOON* Oh Janelle Monae! I caught her interview with Terry Gross a year or so ago and have been hopelessly in lust ever since. Her music, style, dancing…. everything… is amazing.
I wanted to wear gold and white spectator-style heels for my wedding, but naturally they don’t exist anywhere, not to my specifications. So I painted them myself! Sadly my photographer didn’t get any pictures, but I’ll dig them out and take a picture to post.
