So finals have me going crazy at college so I  decided I needed a break and think about the summer for a bit. This year for WW2 weekend I plan on making Simplicity 3673 circa 1941 without the skirt for now though.
I was looking at the pattern and wondering what shoes I could wear with the shorts and top. The pattern's shoes are either oxfords or moccasins and a pair of saddle shoes. I want a pair of saddle shoes so those are on the shopping list regardless but I was looking at my other options and decided I would share them with you for your retro shoe needs. has saddle shoes in the black/white combination for $19.99, has all sorts of vintage looking shoes; some of my favorites are 
See them here, I was thinking
these would work for the pattern

Good everyday shoes, I saw a pair
on etsy that were similar

These would be great for a winter suit

Smart shoes! has styles the same as an similar to Modcloth though I don't know how the prices vary. 
You can't beat Modcloth's cute shoes;
If only they were less expensive....

Another Modcloth favorite has a wonderful pair of 1920's T strap shoes that you can use leather paints on for any color combination you want. Well I think I got all of my feelings out for shoes tonight. I plan on getting the saddle shoes and I might just get the red sandals too just for fun!

P.S. sorry for the weird formatting .... I can't figure out how to put all of the pictures in and have them all fit nicely. Any help with that would be greatly appreciated!
