Hello, dear Shoeblog readers! Long time no see, eh?
I’ve been away and am finally returned and caught up on the last few weeks of Shoeblog and Shoeforum happenings. And just in time for New York Fashion Week! Your loyal Shoebloggers will be bringing you thoughts and reviews about the Fashion Week shows, so make sure to stay tuned throughout the rest of this week.
It’s been a bit of a shock to the system coming back to New York from the middle of the woods where I was off on vacation. Not only are there no shoe stores up there, there was only dial-up internet. It was a complete vacation from shoes.
Well… that’s not quite true. You didn’t think I could give up shoes full-stop for several weeks at a go, did you?
Even on a woodland vacation, I managed to not only discover a great new shoe store (JL Coombs, where they stock all kinds of brands that we here at Shoeblog love… Mephisto, Ecco, Ugg, Merrell, TSUBO, etc), but I also snapped up a pair of kicks I’d been coveting online for quite some time.
I’m talking about the 80%20 Jody slip-ons (I got the blue cherry blossom), which were marked down from $65 to merely $35.
If you want a pair of these for yourself, they’re $60 at Shoes.com, but there are often great deals at that site, so play your cards right and you could have these cuties, too. They come in lots of colors and designs, and I’ve already been wearing them all over the place.
