Actually what I had been on the lookout for was a pair of white pumps with a black cap toe, but the only ones I could find had either platforms or three digit pricetags. So then in the space of a week I won both of these on eBay.
The pumps still had their tags on, and are Isaac Mizrahi for Target, which means they're not terribly comfortable but I do like the low heel height. The oxfords are tattered Ralph Laurens, and I feel like a dapper '20s gentleman wearing them today with dark blue jeans, a cream ruffly tank, and a cropped tuxedo jacket bought for $15 off the H&M clearance rack. All I need to fully put on the ritz is a top hat. Oh, and a cane.
