This post is long overdue but I bring it to you in collaboration with Bus Stop Boutique-

It’s no secret that I quickly became obsessed with the brand,as you can probably tell from my Instagram feed, when I connected with Elena, the owner.

Speaking of Instagram that’s actually how I found these new favorite shoes of mine; I was just sitting there scrolling through the feed like I do on any typical day and I came across the most stylish oxfords I had seen – I hadn’t even realized they were right here in Philadelphia when I gave them the double tap.

I quickly set up a time to head into the store and to no surprise I was obsessed! Obviously with the shoes- but with Elena and her whole boutique too! I was partially tempted to keep this little gem of a spot a secret to my own little community because I love finding different and unique things that not everyone has but Philadelphia is the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ so I decided to share the wealth.

So, I originally fell in love with a different pair from the ‘Element ll’ collection – the ones I had first seen on my Instagram feed. When I went into the store they were all lined up and I just kept liking the one color combination better than the next….until….Elena showed me the pair sitting on their own little pedestal. No, I LITERALLY gasped!

The ‘positive negative’ she calls them –this sharp looking black and white oxford …as if it couldn’t get any more chic …they are,in fact, the positive and negative of each other essentially making it appear as if you have two different shoes on …and let me just tell you I was absolutely obsessed with the concept (hence liking to have ‘different’ things than everyone else)

I love everything black and white, naturally because it goes with everything but also because it’s timeless, chic and never going out of style!

I’ve been contemplating back-and-forth with the next color combo I will be snagging- always been a fan of the muted earthy neutrals…which was actually the inspiration behind this line.

Next time you’re in Philly make sure you pop in to BusStop – or give them a follow on Instagram I’m sure you’ll quickly become obsessed like I did!
