Fluevog Sighting: B.C. Finance Minister

 Finally, politics made interesting.

Apparently, the first time she delivered a budget, British Columbia’s Finance Minister Carole Taylor took some flack for wearing $600 Guccis.  Her suitably amended ways took her via a certain Canadian shoe designer.

They look like Teapot Darjeelings, and the green is supposed to symbolise the environmentally-friendly slant of her upcoming budget.  Considering the shoes, I’d expect more of a Celadon Budget – if she were truly commited to the environment, she’d be rocking the Veggie Vogs.

 Tip: The Darjeelings are currently on sale for only $129, and the black ones in particular look great if you swap out the leather lace for some gorgeously coloured ribbon.
