Shoes My Husband Loves: Green Kitten Heels

And just like that, whoosh! Today was over. I don't know where it went. 
However, I do know that I had a lot of fun with "Shoes My Husband Hates" week (even though a bunch of you are not on Team Heeled Sneaker!).


  • Jacket - Alison Wonderland, consignment; last worn here in March 2015(!) with lock and key pants
  • Skirt - Pierre Cardin, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in August 2015 with a bunch of colours
  • Shoes - Half-Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last worn here (3rd outfit, after the VFF Gala pics) in February with a Betsey Johnson strapless dress

I can't believe it's been over a year since I wore this jacket! I love the slim fit of it, and it's really more like a top (I'm wearing a plain black camisole under it) than a jacket. It was so hot last year that many of my jackets didn't get worn over the spring/summer. Thank goodness it's a little cooler this year.
I completely adore this wonderful handmade (in France!) vintage silk Pierre Cardin pencil skirt. This is only its 3rd wearing since I bought it a year and a half ago in Vancouver. I must make an effort to wear it more.

The stuff:
So, I'm not going to do a series of "Shoes My Husband Loves" but as I mentioned before I started the SMHH week last week, I let L pick out a pair of palate-cleansers after all those Crimes Against Shoemanity, and these are what he picked. I was surprised at these, but happy - yay, kitten heels are my favourite!

Here's what he had to say:

At last the bad shoe week is over! Here we have a pair of Fluevogs I absolutely love. Everything about these shoes is perfection, from the incredibly vibrant green, to the way it artfully fades to a darker shade. The buckles and straps are narrow and refined, and the pointed toe and narrow sole are trim and  sexy. This is a shoe that says “classy” and “edgy” with equal fervour. Would I like these beauties to be four inch heels? I’m a man, so of course I would. But these shoes are so stylish and elegant even a low kitten heel appeals. These shoes renew my faith in shoemanity.

Greenest bling:
I'm still kicking myself for not buying these shoes in the purple!


  • Necklace - Mom's vintage 50s
  • Earrings - Stella and Dot

  2. I loved reading L's commentary, esp about the 4 inch heels. Sandy would say precisely the same : > Adore the fitted jacket, and silk (Francais!) skirt. xox

  3. Haha "the shoes renew his faith in humanity " !!
    What a great skirt, I have not seen many Pierre Cardin - if any - in my thrifts.
    Did I tell you I found THREE places I can buy second hand ? Even some vintage ?!

    1. In "shoemanity"! I know, I've only ever seen men's ties from this era by Pierre Cardin - it might be older than 80s, actually. The details of it are totally gorgeous.

      Wow, that's awesome! Have fun with those!

  5. We love L!

    ...and love Alison Wonderland, too: that jacket is terrific.
    I think John F's shoes always speak for themselves, no?

  6. I'm definitely with L on these! Totally fabulous shoes - great colour, sexy and not to high heel- brilliant! That's a sweet little jacket too. It looks like it might even fit me...
