img_2380Power Up | Pussy Power. Size 10? I cannot, for the life of me, find my notes for these Vogs. Apologies for the lack of detail here. I do recall that these were really narrow for me, and I’m not a fan of narrow or pointy shoes. However, I do love the general sentiment of these Vogs. If I were looking for a pair of shoes to complement my beautiful Pussy Power hat made by the lovely Cindi H. as I march down the streets in the name of feminism, these would be it. Unfortunately, I’m generally not a fan of fur on my shoes (unless they’re winter boots and the fur is meant to keep my feet warm).

img_2394Prepares | Leader. Size 9.5 For the record, anything from the Prepares family is a no-brainer for me. I’m always in! Like everything else in this family, this furry version is equally comfy. The size 9.5 fit, but was a little tight, so I’d likely opt for a 10 in these. I love the little floral detail on the patent leather blue on these. Unfortunately, I’m just not a fan of the fur on these (and any other clothing item for that matter). It’s just me. If fur is your thing, then do you, Boo. Do you!

for the love of vogs,

NB: In Fluevogs, I’m a women’s size 9. Depending on the fit and family, I size up or down from there. For example, in most Minis, I’m a size 8.5. In the Fellowships, I’m typically a size 9.5. However, I do have wide, flat feet and Morton’s Toe, which makes sizing a little strange for me. Admittedly, these days, I like a little more wiggle room in the toes and I don’t like to bother with extra stretching. Therefore, I’ve been sizing up in my more recent purchases.
