June Fluevog love



Sorry for the semi-blurry photo. Darn phones!

Hello June! As I have mentioned before, the Manpanion has recently caught the Fluevog bug. I gotta say, Fluevogs have definitely changed his entire wardrobe. When we first met almost four years ago, he always dressed nice – jeans and button-down shirts for more formal occasions, jeans and t-shirts on the daily. However, he often wore jeans that were way too baggy. Plus, he was totally married to his sneakers.

Since he has acquired his first pairs of Fluevogs in November 2013, I have seen some major changes in his wardrobe. For example, he has since tossed the too-baggy jeans and now sports more structured, dark jeans. He hasn’t let go of his desire to coordinate, so he often wears a belt and watch that matches his shoes. Heck, he even has a color matching app on his phone, just to make sure he’s color coordinated. It melts my heart watching him get ready for work, as he decides his daily outfit:)

For a long time, he resisted even trying on a pair of Fluevogs. However, things have changed and he’s developed a love of Fluevogs. I often find him peeking at the site and when we visit the store, he tries things on too! Recently, he and I attended Dorothy’s M.A. graduation ceremony. The pic above shows us sporting some awesome Vogs. I’m wearing the Minis | Babycake in black (which I had altered to fit my calves). The Manpanion is sporting his newly acquired Executors | Rigas in brown. Gotta say… those babies are lookin’ sharp! Big hugs to our friends at Haight Street! FlueDaddy Denny gave the Rigas a gorgeous shoe shine before we took them home.

For those who love to Vog together,

  1. How did you alter the Babycakes to fit your calves? Please share! I’m dying for a pair!

  2. Thank you so much! I will investigate! I love the Minis and would love to get a pair before it’s all discontinued. Looks great on you!
