I found this website called Moxsie last year while reading the Dream Sequins blog. It is a really good store full of independent fashion brands. If you are interested in finding out about new brands, this is a good website to peruse. While searching the shoe section, I found a brand that I was not familiar with. Matiko Footwear is a company from Orange County, California that started out making surfer style footwear and then changed to women’s footwear. I have recently gotten into desert boots. I thought they were kind of weird looking but my opinion has changed. Matiko makes a great desert wedge. The color , called Sid Yellow, looks at little Brady Bunch/ Partridge Family, but I like it. The costs $172 and is a shoe that I think is becoming a new classic. Photo from Moxsie.
I want to thank everyone who has been giving my hope, well wishes, and words of encouragement especially after yesterday’s post. Minor setbacks happen. That’s life. I was on twitter yesterday and someone randomly dropped this quotation that put things into perspective.
