The Search for Perfect Mod Pumps

I recently received an inquiry about a pair of very cute mod pumps I featured a few years ago. Vintage shopping is a treasure hunt, so while I didn't have any luck finding an exact match I did find some very cute similar pairs (and some not so similar, but too cute to pass up). I hope this helps Chelsea. ^_^

Found on Etsy:

White granny style oxford heels, size 8, from Sussudio Vintage $19.99

Cute brown suede t-straps, size 8, from Songbird Industries $18

Darling black suede laced pumps, size 8.5, from Easy Street Vintage $42

Super sweet Mary Janes with apple buckles, size 6, from Margaret Pearl Vintage $42

Mod laced wedges (technically not pumps, but cute no?), size 8.5 AA, from Beloved Vintage $18.50

Beautiful gray suede laced heels, size 8 B, from Small Earth Vintage $42

Ivory mod dress shoes with cute little bows, size 7-7.5, from Land Piranha Vntg $20
