Brown leather ankle boots from Three Fates, March 17, 2015

One of the best things about the return to warmer weather is how it opens up your footwear options. I was pretty stoked to go out in my Converse the other day, and have been wearing out my new (to me) pair of brown leather ankle boots (see above) from Parkdale vintage shop Three Fates. My feet are doing a spring time happy dance! And they will be even happier if I win the latest John Fluevog contest! Beginning now till May 14, try on a pair of Fluevogs at any of their locations (in Toronto, that’s on Queen West and in the Distillery) for a chance to win a pair of shoes a year for 10 years. Such a sweet, sweet prize.

Or, if you prefer an event with better odds, you can try your luck at the #EtsyVintageSwap. Hosted by 96 Tears Vintage, the swap will be held at the Gladstone Hotel this Thursday. Participants are asked to bring up to 5 vintage pieces and will get a stamp for each piece, redeemable for any item at the event. I’ve picked up some great pieces at clothing swaps over the years, like a multicoloured Rachel Roy shift that I recently wore to an art exhibition opening. If you go, just remember one thing; in sartorial speak, “vintage” means it’s at least 20 years old. Your H&M sweater from last season does not count!
