Super Stripes and A Fluevog A Day - Blind Faith Hi "Rebecca"

Woo, I'm exhausted...both L and I have been having nutty weeks, and our days are way too full. It's past 10 pm and here I am just getting today's post up.

Today's stripes and the Fluevog of the Day are one and the same! I have stripes on my footwear!

I am also wearing my new-to-me dress that I picked up in Vancouver last weekend:
I think of this as sort of a "retro cowgirl" look. The dress is a classic shirtwaist (it has extra pleats in the back to pouf it out a bit more) in a nice neutral colour. I do wear neutrals sometimes! The dress was $21.00.

You can't see it in the above pictures, but I'm wearing my fluffy skirt underneath it:
I'd link to the last time I wore the underskirt, but it has no label so I can't find it when I search. I also have a red cami on under the dress (gotta hide the cleavage at work!).

Oh, there, you can see the striped heels on my boots! These are my only pair of tall Fluevog boots - I got them on sale a couple of years ago. This family is called the Blind Faith Hi (there was also a Blind Faith Lo and Mid, referring to the heel height), and this style is the Rebecca. All the Blind Faith styles had the same striped wooden heel, I believe. These are quite comfortable, but very tight in the calves - the leather is very stiff and even after many wears, they are still a ways to go in being soft.

I last wore them here, and you can see some of the detailing from the first time I wore them here.

The stuff:
That truly is a gorgeously-shaped boot. I love the stitching going up the side, the little square studs at the top and the zipper up the front - rock and roll!

A close-up of the accessories:
My favourite Shi Studio belt buckle, and some stone jewelry. The turquoise necklace is from my "free" haul in the consignment store this last Sunday - it was $20, and I used my credit. It has a real heft to it, and warmed up on my skin, feeling lovely.

Dress (Reitman's, consignment), ruffly underskirt (no label, consignment), boots (Blind Faith Hi, Rebecca, Fluevog), belt (Shi Studio), bracelet (Plum), necklace (consignment).

  2. Those are some glorious boots, and I have to say - one of the more creative ways of incorporating stripes. The dress is adorable. I love a good shirtdress.
