Continued Frivolity

Thank you all for your great shoe advice. My mom thanks you, too. Unbeknownst to me, she was in the market for some shoe inspiration, too.

For now, I have purchased these:



Katia, by Fluevog. Pretty, huh? I just can't seem to move beyond the Mary Jane, alas. Would have loved something in a color other than black, but had to stick with what was on sale chez Fluevog, and in a style I liked, black was my option. If I love these and feel like it's worth it, I can always get something else in this brand in a more fun color.

It turns out that when you buy a pair of really expensive shoes online, a sales rep calls you to discuss the size and confirm your shipping address and let you know when to expect your goods. How lovely!

It's now hours after I initially started this post and I've enjoyed a lovely evening of wine and snacks and IKEA furniture assembly and a visit from my best friend and the ensuing great conversation. Time to turn in.

Inspired by the comments on your post the other day, I went to the Fluevog store on Newbury St. in Boston today and bought a pair -- the kind with the ribbon. Blew my shoe budget for the year, but I'm ridiculously happy about them! Thanks (or curse you?) for the inspiration!

Great choice! I have these exact shoes and love them to pieces. I hope you like them as much as I do.

(And: your calves will look hot.)

Those look fun!

I have shoe envy! They are just great.

Crash Course Widow said...

Omg! LOVE those shoes!! I hope they're as comfy as flip flops. ;o)

And sounds like a fabulous evening. Glad you had a good one!

Ah, Fluevog is a good choice, and more stylish than the Tsubo's I recommended (very late).

Enjoy!

That Fluevog heel is super-comfortable. I have the Operetta Malibrans in red and wear them as often as possible. I also have another pair of Fluevog heels that survived me climbing around on a rocky shoreline at a Vancouver Island wedding, so you know they're pretty robust, too.
