Day 150 - Vancouver

Kittie is in Vancouver, which is the base of the Canadian shoemeister John Fluevog.  Naturally enough she couldn't resist these additions to the collection today at the JF boutique downtown, in lightly textured coral pink and grey.  A photo taken in the boutique somehow sadly disappeared during downloading, so this is taken instead from Kittie's hotel room in front of the fabulous views (out of the frame) of Vancouver's famous harbour.  They are accompanied by Ormonde Jayne's Frangipane.

PS  Retrieved the original photo, taken in the Fluevog boutique downtown.


  1. A very special purchase already. Kittie, you never cease to amaze...and the photographer is?

  2. Welcome to the continent.

    These are so...hippy? Or boho? Yeah, maybe boho. Agree?
    Boho with attitude, chic attitude of course.

  3. The photographer is innocent. I will say no more. And yes, Joseph, I would tick both the hippy and boho boxes with John Fluevog. I love that these came in a soft sleeper bag signed by the meister emblazoned with the following exhortation: "Always hold on to the truth. Don't let others sway your heart. Don't compromise yourself for the sake of temporal groovyness (sic). Be separate from the crowd that's awash with normality by standing on a firm foundation. Never waver in your love or faith, and in all you do, please wear my shoes". Now THAT's attitude!!! I love it!
