Hello Friends! Sorry for the unusually long delay between posts. I am reducing the rate of posts for the summer, so that I can enjoy the warm weather, spend time with friends and family (I am getting my grandma from Russia to visit us over the summer), and work on a major illustration project I was planning for a while (more on that later). I will still keep posting regularly, on weekly basis, so come back and see what will be illustrated on Stylish Goose.

Here is a cheerful illustration to brighten your week. I love this easy going look from the entirely black and white SS 2010 collection by Devastee. I love this dress, it looks very comfortable for the summer, and it is a cool take on menswear. And I love the top detail to show a bit of skin.

Keeping with the menswear theme, those pointy lace-ups are really in this summer, right? I think those Coral Brogues from Mauro Grifoni SS 2010 accessories collection are supper cute. The antique leather goes well with this easy cool look.

Does anyone of you guys have this style of shoe? I don't, but I really was thinking about it...


  1. J'adore!
    the head piece, of course, gets me straight in the heart!

    I dont have shoes like that. I'm aware of my calve-to-heel ratio, and think those would prove most unflattering.

    Sad to here that less illustrations will grace these pages, but totally understand summertime (and the livin' is easy!)

  2. Love this outfit with the blazer!

    And yes, I have 3 pairs of flat brogues! 2 like these but black and one in brown but with a buckle! I love them- you should totally get some!! Just try to avoid them being too chunky, one of my black pairs is and they're hard to pull off with skirts and dresses without feeling like i'm wearing my Dad's shoes! But these look perfect!

    PS i'm intrigued to know about your project!

  3. Hi Genya,

    Love the coral oxfords!

    I recently bought my first pair of oxford shoes from Capeizo. Like you, I was a little apprehensive of purchasing this types of shoe but the key is finding the right one which suits your look, wardrobe, style and colour.

    In the end, I'm very happy about my purchase. The cream coloured oxfords are a great alternative to the summer/flat shoe.



Thanks a lot for your comments!
