Oxford shirts! Where does a shortie find herself some?

I wear buttoned-down, collar shirts everyday, for work and for leisure. The last couple of seasons I had tons and tons of options in stores like Old Navy and H&M as a rather small woman, but the shelves this season signals that shirts are no longer in. Where can I look for affordable but stylish shirts?

I live in Toronto. Second-hand, vintage etc are totally fine, as long as they fit properly, although I am also looking for brand/store recommendations. For women's shirts I wear S or XS at Old Navy and 2-4 at H&M. I think $20/ shirt is pretty reasonable provided they are durable and look good. And yes, I am totally going for an Ellen-esque look i.e. not gonna do the thing where I wear a "boyfriend" shirt with belt as a dress.
p.s. I have no qualms wearing men's or boy's shirts, but I swim in men's small or XS; and boy's shirts are typically cut too short and too wide.
