Dressing Vintage - Shoes

I've long loved wearing vintage clothes but recently I've really whittle my collection down because a lot of the items I owned were very tired. When I was younger, I'd buy a new dress every week for the nights I went out and at $40 a pop they were affordable. It's not pretty rare to get good vintage for that price, so I've been more inclined to buy second hand but not what I call vintage. Vintage has to be from the 1980's or earlier, it can't be last season...

Lately I've felt like dressing up more and want to wear more vintage on a daily basis. The big thing for me is shoes because apart from my Rocco's and my lace up mid length boots, I don't wear any other shoes. I love my sneakers but they are just too loud for someone aspiring to be senior management!

So I've been scouring ebay for some vintage flat shoes. I like the idea of loafers which I have always shied away from in the past.

I ordered some brogues from Urban Outfitters, can't wait to get them! It's really a winter issue because in summer I wear sandals every day.

What are some of your favourite vintage shoes? I don't have any photos of mine, must update my Flickr photostream soon!
