When it comes to designing my collection, I have a strict rule that not many die-hard Vogers follow. Here it goes: I never buy two or more of the same shoe (even if it is in a different color). It doesn’t matter how much I LOVE the shoe, I just won’t do it. Vogs are serious footwear. I don’t mess around.
Of the many things I know for sure, it’s that John Fluevog will always come out with incredible styles – no matter what season it is. I always look forward to seeing what’s new. This is why I just can’t bring myself to purchase two of the same shoe.
Note: What works for me may not work for you. That’s perfectly fine. Different strokes for different folks. For example, Madam Shirley has the Malibrans in black and red. This works for her. She uses this shoe quite a bit – especially when trekking around San Francisco. The Malibrans are gorgeous, practical, and suit Madam Shirley’s needs. For people who are particular about their footwear, or have sizing issues, I can definitely understand why purchasing multiples is necessary. Since I tend to get bored easily, two of the same shoe just doesn’t suit me.
It’s not that I haven’t been tempted. Remember the Hotcakes? I was kinda tempted to purchase the brown ones when they went on sale. However, my strict “no multiples” rule negated that possibility quickly. Recently, the Fluevog site announced that the Malibrans will be coming in a new color for spring. Be still my beating heart. I could really use some pink in my arsenal. Le sigh.
What Vogs would you or do you have multiples in? Why do you love them so much? In what colors would you like to see specific Vogs in? Please post to comments:)
For the love of Fluegasms,
