I pretty much copied the same outfit I wore last month and swapped out the legwear and shoes. But… the shoes! The shoes. Really, this is all about the shoes. I never considered myself a shoe-person, seriously, until I learned that sometimes it is worth it to spend more than $20 on a quality pair.
I wore these earrings to bring out the blue in the dress, and to complement the tights and the shoes. The shoes!
These shoes came home with me on Sunday, and I knew that I needed to wear them on Monday. My birthday was last week, and when Matt wanted to know what I would like as a gift, I asked if we could go to the fairly-newly-opened Fluevog store in DC. While I do appreciate the quality of a pair of Fluevogs, I also knew that, left to my own devices, I would try on several pair and leave the store empty-handed. I can be a brat like that, sometimes.
I did indeed try on several pair. I loved the Elif, but the 8s were a tad too big, and the store was sold out of 7.5s. I was then leaning toward the Bunny when my clerk threw a wrench at me. “A little random, but I thought you might want to try these.”
At first, I wasn’t impressed. I wanted my inaugural pair of Fluevogs to be… well, Fluevogs. But holy cow! So comfortable. The color is gorgeous, and for some reason, it reminds me of my grandmother. I wore these all day Monday, walking to work, with no issues.
I’m already planning to wear these at least once a week now, maybe more.
