A Fluevog Revelation

It has been far, far too long and this little blog has been neglected - but my love of shoes is undiminished. I decided to resurrect this blog in order to begin sharing the shoe love once more, and there is one line of shoes that impressed me way back in 2011 (when I started this blog) and still does in 2014. In fact, they caught my eye and captured my heart in the 1980's, because no one does shoes like John Fluevog.

Originating in Vancouver, Fluevog shoes are now all over the world and for good reason. The eclectic designs are coupled with fabulous craftsmanship, creating shoes that are not only good quality but truly unusual. Fluevogs - or 'Vogs' as their fans call them - are not for everyone, but every true shoenista will likely have a pair or two (dozen) in their closet.

The spring/summer 2014 line does not deviate from Fluevog's attention to detail and love of the unique, and these little charmers showcase every facet of Fluevog at his finest. These are from the Miracles family and are called the 'Revelation' - and I would say they are a revelation indeed! The sweet little ribbon tie, the delicate embroidery, and the slightly saucy heel coupled with the little swoosh cut out? This is THE shoe for spring in my closet - and you can find the Miracles Revelation right here! The best news? They also come in a black and beige colourway!

Top(shop) Boots For Cloudy Days

Okay, my love of boots is no secret, but I particularly love boots that are unique in some way. I found these today at Topshop and they took my breath away. The colour is amazing, and the price is reasonable. What great boots for a cloudy grey fall day!

Fall-ing For Boots

At times this poor little shoe blog is neglected as I get pre-occupied with other writing projects. This blog is never far from my thoughts, though, as shoes are never far from my mind, either. As our temperature drops, the leaves begin to turn colour, and the windshield of my car requires scraping my thoughts turn to fall and boots. Boots, boots, boots, fall is ALL about boots to me. I found these boots today at Schuh and thought them terrific for crunching fall leaves on those cool afternoons.

Forest Green Wedges

In fall my colour palette changes to chocolate brown, slate grey, rich burgundy, rusty red, and, most especially, forest green. When I saw these online at Aldo Shoes I knew I had to have them. Forest green suede, with a wedge heel and stacked sole, they are the epitome of fall sexy. When they arrived and I tried them on I was amazed with how comfortable they are, too! This will be my go-to shoe this fall...

Fall Schuhs

I know it's still August but my thoughts have turned to fall, fellow addicts. As my favourite retailers begin to stock their fall lines I find something delicious almost every day. A quick perusal of the new arrivals at Schuh turned up these - and I think they are quite lovely!

Why, John Fluevog? Why?!?

Well, shoe addicts, I'm going to lose a lot of weight this fall - because most of my food budget will be spent on boots from Fluevog. Their fall line this year is astonishing, and each time they add new ones to the website I groan and check my bank balance yet again. I love Fluevogs - there is no doubt - but I don't see how anyone can resist the offerings they have this season. This blog is rapidly becoming a love sonnet to Fluevog, but I can't help it. With shoes like this how can I resist? How can you?!?

Miz Mooz Does Great Shoes

You know what makes me happiest? Discovering a new line of shoes that I love, that's what. Recently I found Miz Mooz shoes and fell in love. These shoes are everything I adore - unique styling, excellent quality, beautiful materials, and a reasonable price. I found these at Infinity Shoes - and they do indeed ship to Canada. Oh dear!
