Oh, good golly, it was excruciating getting up so early this morning. Look at this!
- Sweater - Ralph Lauren, thrifted; last seen here in November 2015 with Lacroix
- Velvet trousers - Tobias, consignment; purchased here last week for $17.60
- Shoes - Qtee Mini, Fluevog, consignment; last worn here in September 2015 with a classic combo
- Scarf - thrifted
- Earrings - vintage expo
The last time I wore the above shoes, I also wore these earrings and scarf!
Are you ready for Adventure? How about a John Fluevog Adventure?
These boots were heavily discounted from $525.00 to $199.00 and with only one pair left in my size (9.5) I had to have them. They are butter-soft leather, with zippers on the inside (so I only need to adjust the laces once). The heels and platform are a waxed suede, and the soles are thick rubber. These are not as high as they look, due to the platform and another hidden platform inside - they are also totally squishy inside so super-comfy!
Add these Adventures to my other Prepare Hi shoes, the Prepare Hi Steady in yellow waxed suede (last worn here). L notoriously hates the "Disco Dutch" shoes, but didn't mind these ones - he noted that the clunky heel and sole are balanced by the larger top half of the boots. Either way, I am excited to wear them - it'll be this week!
Those boots are completely awesome! I'm so happy for you!ReplyDelete
Love the colours in your outfit but those boots really steal the show - what a great Christmas present and awesome use of the voucher, looking forward to seeing how you wear them! :)ReplyDelete

Adorable 70's vibe. You remind me of Rhoda Morgenstern (from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and Rhoda's spinoff series).ReplyDelete
oooh, those new Fluevog boots - call them the "Sheila"! xoxReplyDelete
I absolutely love this outfit and the vintage vibe !!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that the trousers stretched during the day.. they were my favorite garment.
And I totally agree, NOBODY should have to go out to work in the morning when its THAT dark.
Great boots and a super bargain...nice that your managers know what you like and got together with the gift certificate,ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Sheila!
Gulp-tastic (heh) boots. I'm glad they have a zipper - I am not a lace purist. Superb gift!! You can never ever quit your job. And I love your big earrings. Yeah! I'm so into big ones these days. Is it a phase? Can't wait for your visit.ReplyDelete
Those are delicious boots - when I see Fluevogs like that, I really wish I could wear them. Interesting that L doesn't mind the Prepares when they are in tall boot form. Your boss obviously knows what kind of gift you would most appreciate.ReplyDelete
I took all our Christmas decorations down in the office the day before we closed for the holidays (December 23). It was a major challenge getting out of bed on time on Monday.
I think if I had to chose a favourite element of your closet it would be your footwear. Today's shoes look so funky and am green with envy about these boots. What a wonderful establishment you work for to reward you so handsomely! Hurrah - I'm sure you deserve it xReplyDelete
