Queen of Punk + Queen of Eco-Chic

This week my post for my guest blogging on DNA Footwear’s site featured the most unique collaboration in shoe design history: Vivienne Westwood and Melissa. I never thought I’d be yearning for a pair of jellies like I had back in the day like I do now…

C’mon, how rad are these?? I’d still wear this rubbery plastic kicks.

I’ll just have to settle for some Vivienne Westwood for Melissa shoes!

Designer Spotlight: Vanessa Mooney

If you read this blog and you’ve seen the awesome boho/ethnic inspired jewelry in places like the Free People catalogs and some major celebs, then chances are you’ve seen the gorgeous jewelry of Vanessa Mooney.

I was first introduced to her designs by fellow blogger and fashion lover, Justin of Munrowe, while pulling pieces for an editorial shoot, and I nearly died! Her line is exactly the style that I grew up with from my hippie mom. “Andi,” my mother who’s the namesake and inspiration of this blog, learned how to make jewelry from the Hopi Native Americans and that style is totally living on through the creations of Vanessa Mooney.

When I found out that the designer is coming out with a shoe line, my heart fluttered! Jewelry and shoes: a gal’s two loves. I had to spotlight the designer for my guest blogging on DNA’s site this week! I can’t wait for these easy breezy moccasins to debut so I can rock them with my VM jewelry.

Guest Blogging: Designer Spotlight #1

I feel quite honored that one of my favorite shoe stores asked me to be their weekly guest blogger starting in 2012! This could get dangerous, as now I’m finding more great shoes from not just their store, but from designers you should get to know.

Check out my first post of my designer spotlight on DNA FOOTWEAR’s blog.
