New boots and Duran Duran Appreciation Day

I'm back! I was in Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday and didn't have time to get any outfit shots. It was quite the whirlwind trip which started with a very strange taxi ride from the airport to my hotel. Then I immediately went from my hotel to Fluevog where I bought the boots shown below and a pair of sweet shoes. Then I went to a meeting in the afternoon after which I met a friend on a patio in the terrible heat and proceeded to get a wee bit toasted on Naughty Otter lager. I'm a chatty drunk who wakes up in the middle of the night thinking "What the F*$& did I say!?" If no one is around, I drunk tweet. I guess it can be amusing.

Thursday I went to my meeting, hungover, and got a little annoyed at some of the "policy wonk" made up terms that were being bandied about. Apparently, when I'm hungover I'm mouthy.

I'm glad to be home and today we got our new washing machine delivered. OH BABY!
August 10th is Duran Duran Appreciation Day. Please appreciate them with me.

To show my appreciation, beyond going to see them in concert twice later this month, I wore my new white, strappy, buckley boots.

Dress/Tunic: Dorothy Perkins (last worn here)
Leggings: Joe Fresh
Boots: Fluevog Truth | Petrea

I wore this tunic with these boots at the suggestion of one of my policy colleagues from Ontario who also reads my blog. (HI R d V)

She was right - it totally worked with these boots.

I am totally in love with these boots. Smitten. These boots made me feel funky and confident and, dare I say it, sexy?

These boots would kick your ass if I told them too.





  1. OMG! I am both so glad and so jealous you came home with those boots. They are so freaking cool. And they look great with that tunic. Also I enjoyed your drunk tweets. They were amusing.

  2. I have been admiring those in the black for many months - a store in town has them. I'm stalking them, waiting for them to get marked down further. I'm not surprised you bought them!

    Love the outfit, and that is my very favourite Duran Duran song! Yay! Glad to have you back. Heh, we'll have to get drunk sometime - I'm also very chatty.

  3. Those boots are sassy, sexy, and would so kick someone's ass as soon as you gave the word - excellent boot/shoe score!

  4. Happy homecoming! Amazing boots, holy moly! Your accompanying facial expressions are my favourite.
    Given my John-crush of almost 30 years' duration, I gladly appreciate with you. Bring on the sweet shoes!

  5. Duran Duran appreciation day - never heard of it, but I am very happy to appreciate them! I love their music and I hope you have a fab time going to the concerts. Those boots are made for walking and ass kicking. Fabulous.

  6. Oh woow those boots kick seriously ass!!! OMG!!

  7. I love how you went straight from your hotel to Fluevog. You definitely have your priorities right :) Those boots rock, and your co-worker is right, perfect with the tunic.

  8. Yes yes, yes, the boots are cool and sassy and you ARE sexy - now please don't kick my arse! And they do indeed look perfect with the tunic.
    You take your Duran Duran appreciation very seriously, I like that, no half measures, no "yeah, s'pose they're OK..." Just full-on LOVE!
    A chatty forgetful drunk and mouthy when hungover? Sounds like me! xxx
