Hipstimatic Jellies


I love nostalgia and the ability to connect with your past,mostly my fashion past that is. If you grew up in the 80's you are all to familiar with jellies, the PVC shoes that were oh so very hip. I can remember like it was yesterday that my grandmother would purchase me a few pairs every summer and I would wear them until the little pinkie toe popped and then I'd put on a new pair and start the cycle all over again.  Well jellies have come a long way as my grandma said just this week. She was in awe of my new pairs of jellies circa 2011 from Melissa a Brazilian based company and the Christian Louboutin of the jelly world. The Melissa brand has a huge global presence and has partnered with such designers as Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Alexandre Herchcovich.The shoes are whimsical, fashionable and of course comfortable with a major celebrity following with the likes of Katy Perry and Beth Ditto. I have been receiving tons of compliments and shrills of glee when I proudly proclaim they're jellies. If you're looking to purchase a pair  of Melissas check out Karmaloop.
