Get Excited...someone is planning to pickup the Malibus!

Dear Vog Lovers,

Generalissa JRo “ordered” me to take one for the team and I gladly complied. The Malibus are one of the sexiest pairs of boots around. I will be picking up these beauties soon BUT I’m wondering if you all could send me some outfit ideas. I’d love to hear your ideas and maybe, just maybe, I’ll pick up your idea and wear the outfit to an art opening.

PS: JRo wanted me to post the picture of the fateful day I said ‘yes’ to the Malibus.

  1. A little black dress would be wonderful! Nothing to detract from your marvelous boots!

  2. Yes! A little black dress, maybe accented with a simple silver belt and of course, hoop earrings!

    Btw. Don’t even try to blame me for this purchase. You know you needed an excuse to indulge. Besides, these are HOT! And you’re an art writer. Consider this an investment, as these could be a signature piece for you.

    Which reminds me… I need to add “OTS” to the FluevAlabras. OTS = Over The Shoulders. These are definitely the type of boots that can dazzle your day and add sizzle to your nights;P

    You’re welcome. (drops the microphone and walks off the stage)

  3. omg. all i can imagine with these boots is more black leather. patent. tight and form-fitting pants. or maybe a black leather vest worn with a high-neck, button-down blouse with long puffy sleeves, either black, cream, or gray. (with a riding crop?) *faints*
