Cool Vintage Finds - Pumpin' 80s

Most people remember the eighties for some of the horrendous fashion trends that arose during the period. However, it wasn't a complete disaster of an era as there were some interesting trends that managed to actually still look rather cool.

One such trend in my opinion is geometric colour block pumps. I'm all about unique, interesting and funky accessories and these shoes easily fit the bill. What's also great is that I found these ones on Etsy all for US$30 and under!

Now I know these aren't for everyone, so for those of you out there like me, hope you like these shoes as much as I do!
