Friday, Nov. 29th at Fluevog's Granville Street store was the Christmas Shoe Tree setting for an eventful evening of designer shoes and dressy fashions, past and present.  Ivan Sayers, Vancouver Fashion Historian and Collector, presented looks from Dior to Balenciaga, from satin to fur and from head to toe.  Many of the Fluevog designs were also modelled.  The lucky door prize winner won a $250 gift certificate to Fluevog's and we were all very interested in  helping her make her selection.  SMOC members dressed up, of course, some even wearing vintage or modern Fluevog's shoes, boots and purses.  A certain piano teacher bought a superb pair of classic black pumps with funky, curvy heels, perfect for gracing those recital stages.  It was a fantastic night of learning about fashion, watching an expertly curated show and raising money for SMOC.  Oh and did I mention how much energy we devoted to trying on everything in the store!  This is the place to find the perfect shoe and the perfect fit.  John Fluevog and SMOC - a perfect combination and a collaboration that must be repeated.

Very generous (and much celebrated) door prize of $250

My favorite black and whites at the store

 The fashionable boots I need for the weather outside, any weather, any season.

That profile - that hat, that outfit, those shoes.
