Vintage Wishes: Together Rayelle

1 Comment

Confession: One of my favorite features of the Fluevog site is Everyday Fluevog.  I love seeing how others wear their Vogs. Plus, it gives me a chance to drool (or cry) over the Vintage Vogs I missed out on during my pre-Fluevog, living-in-the-dark days. Another confession: I have a healthy running list of Vintage Vogs I’d like to covet. Today, I share a pair that I have only seen in the photo above. Rayelle comes from the Together family, a lower version of the the Together Hi family. Personally, I think every professional woman needs to own a pair of Benatars. They’re fantastic! Naturally, when I saw these, I nearly squealed in delight because the color combination is gorgeous, they look comfy, and I can imagine endless hours of me prancing around the streets of San Francisco and Phoenix in them. (Okay, that last note may be horrific to some, but I don’t care. If you don’t wanna see me prance, go look the other way!)

Oh Rayelle (size 9-9.5), one day you and I shall meet.

So… what’s on your Vintage Fluevog wishlist?

For the love of Fluegasms,

  1. if they made the benatars in 5, i would definitely have them by now! and please feel free to prance in your fluevogs anytime you’re around me … and may i join you? 🙂

    i don’t have a vintage wishlist per se, because i strongly suspect i’ll just be disappointed that the older styles won’t fit my feet anyway. but i love the bass minstrel family of flats, the blind faith hi family (which i KNOW don’t fit me in the size 6), and a few others whose names i’ll have to look in the newsletter archives for.
