fash•ion (fash-uh n) | moccasins

I love Minnetonka's.  It all started with a pair of brown Kilty Suede moccassins I bought a few years ago.  Since then, my love for Minnetonka's evolved. They're comfy, cozy, functional and more importantly they're a great alternative to wearing tennis shoes when you're commuting to work.  They truly are a timeless piece in my closet and are a great investment.

So when I took a business trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico earlier this year, I was giddy when I stumbled upon these gray Thunderbird II Minnetonka moccasins at an amazing store that had fantastic Native American jewelry, art and clothing.  There was no way I was leaving the city without getting myself a little souvenir, and these mocs were the perfect memorabilia.

|What are your thoughts on moccassins? Do you think they're a fad that should just go away or do you see them as fashionably functional footwear?|

Also, congratulations to Sharon from Elisharon on winning the Blouse Amour giveaway!  I'll be emailing you with details on how you can get your blouse.

They are here to stay! Nina Garcia included them in her book The 100 - a list of items every stylish woman should have. Minnetonkas, specifically! I dig your thunderbirds.

I LOVE moccasins! I was actually going to buy a pair of Minnetonka ones, since my Nine West ones are CRAP!

I LOVE moccasins. I remember having a couple pairs of them growing up, then after I moved to AK, I had to give them up because... who wears mocs in the winter? :)
Have a happy weekend!

I used to have a pair of pink moccassions I wore to death back in the 7th grade. I love them but haven't yet gotten another pair. You are inspiring me to find some more.
