'As Flies to Wanton Boys Are we to [Sales]'

I saw these oxfords at Lord & Taylor at the beginning of the Winter season, fondled them, smelled the new leather but resignedly put them back. At $195, they had to be left behind. Fast forward a couple of months and a sick sale (in December for those of you who think I went back on my shopping ban promise) and a price tag of $51 and well, that's why there's blog pics of them now.  Snagged them in black as well.

Thought I'd have some fun with them and pair them with this sheer maxi from Free People, my harness belt and floppy hat.  







What I'm Wearing:
Oxfords: J Litvack via Lord & Taylor
               Orig. Price: $195.00
                Paid: $51.00
Free People Sheer Maxi
Sweater: BCBG
Harness: Etsy
Hat: Asos
Rings: NYC Street Vendor, Forever 21 
Lipstick: Mac
