Look for Less: J.Crew Oxford Ballet Flat
I was actually shocked when I noticed these Oxford Ballet Flats in J.Crew's most recent catalog this weekend. Not because they aren't adorable, or because I thought they didn't fit in at J.Crew (they totally do). I have just never seen a style start at a cheaper retailer and be copied by a more expensive outfit. I posted on the UO version of these shoes last summer (and I love them just as much today as I did then).
Oxford Ballet Flats - J.Crew - $138.00
Kimchi Blue Two-Tone Wingtip Skimmer - Urban Outfitters - $34.00
And to top it all off, J.Crew's version only comes in black+white, while UO's version comes in either black+white or brown+white (which I prefer).
What do you guys think? Is this a style you would wear? Leave your thoughts below.
