There was also a pair of Sacha London very 80's pointy-toe ankle-strap pseudo-spectator pumps. Black patend and turqoise. So not practical, but they would've been a good deal at $45. I held myself back, though. (only what I need, only what I need, only what I need...)
What I neglected to mention was the pair of Marshall Fields (rest its soul...Macy's...all Macy's) caramel peep toe pumps I did find for $34. I'd been searching all weekend for flats, but couldn't find any that weren't loafers or just plain old boring, so I drowned my sorrows in a new pair of everyday pumps. Not in black.
