Melissa: The Shoes of My Childhood & Present, Now Available in NYC! ;)

I just wanted to let you know that I endorse this Brazilian product of my own will and have not been sponsored in any way to write this. In fact, it's been years since I've reviewed a product in this blog -- I don't think that marketers turn to "small" mommy bloggers anymore, just to the big and influential ones. I don't mind...

My first "Melissa" shoes were not the ones I wanted, which were the polka dot ones (these are recent, but the mid-eighties ones were similar, though in paler colors):

but the "spider" one (in red):

A Melissa Store just opened in Soho, NYC and Jarbas Agnelli made this ad for them (other stores sell them too, here's the link to Melissa Stores):

 Another of his Melissa ads -- I have this exact shoe, but grayish (lead color) blue, the design is made by the Campana brothers. I'd write more, but this post has been in my draft folder for months, enjoy:

Enjoy! More later, OK?

This brought back lots of memories for me...I always bought Melissa shoes when I went to Brazil.
