Although shopping on the cheap doesn't always yield great results, sometimes a surprise can be found that calls for common comment, "Wow, no one picked this up yet?!" One of my most favorite finds, a pair of navy blue (almost black) pumps, were bought for a whopping... $4 at a local outlet shop in NYC. After being inspired by Elin Kling's smart-style for months, it is now a perfect testament to her style.
On top of that, this style of pumps has reemerged from the late 80's throughout NYFW and LFW, like shown below from Phil Oh for Vogue.com.
