As I was doing my usual bored-&-browse of the internet the other night, I stumbled upon quite the phenomenon. Shoes named after me! Yes, me specifically. What can I say, apparently I am a muse. ;) (Bear with me here, people. I’ve never met a single person with my name and I was always so sad as a child that there were never any of those souvenir key chains with it either. So this is all quite exciting to me!)
Now, I had seen this Melina boot before and a friend had recently told me about these oh-so-classy heels. So already I was pleased that the good name Melina was being used for footwear purposes, even if they weren’t really anything to get too excited over. But now I have discovered some real beauts!
These definitely make that soft spot in my heart for ugly-chic things go pitter-pater. They’re sort of almost cute, almost edgy, mostly ugly and I couldn’t be happier to have them bear my name. I’m a child of the 90s, so it only makes sense.
Oh these. One part 70s rock goddess, one part southwestern boho, with a fairly lethal amount of embellishment. I have to say, Sam, ya done good. If I were to imagine myself as a boot, I hope it would look something like this. Not to say anyone else would think that, but I have been told I’m loud and a little too much… so perhaps! Either way, I kind of wish these bad boys were in my closet right now. Well, if I’m being honest, I’d take both ‘Melina’ styles and not just for the novelty!
