Quirky Accessories for your shoes and Ears

What I love so much about what I do is never getting board of the new talent that I find in the world. People are unique individuals and they produce things that are unique to them as individuals.

I have stumbled upon a new quirky accessories brand based out of Russia called Plyaka Accessories and they make avengers styled footwear accessories that double as earrings which I thought were so creative.

The accessories have various animation of animal faces , beautiful colored patterns and human animated faces and fringes as its design. Beautiful paired with your favorite shoes to jazz them up or wear them as earrings. From the looks of the brand page on Instagram they also have clothing with some of their designs printed in them which is a plus for those ladies that aren’t into shoes or jewelry.

I absolutely love these creations and find them to be so unique and beautiful. They don’t have a website unfortunately so if you want to purchase then you must contact them through Instagram and their what’s App. @plyaka_accessories

Dressing with dignity by Colleen Hammond

Wooh! A touchy but true read this is. As other reviewers have said about the book, I don’t agree with all aspects but so many of her points on modesty and dressing according to how you would like to be treated was so on point. She also touched on the history of fashion in America.

Here is an overview of the book.

In this ground-breaking book, Colleen Hammond challenges today’s fashions and provides you the information you need to protect yourself and your loved ones from the onslaught of tasteless, immodest clothing. Colleen Hammond shares real-life examples of how women can accentuate the grace and beauty of their femininity, and she shows that modest definitely does not mean frumpy !! DRESSING WITH DIGNITY covers it all . . . The history and forces behind the changes in fashion. How to talk to teenagers about the privilege of femininity so they will want to dress with dignity. How to awaken chivalry in men and be treated with respect. How to regain and teach the lost charm of interior and exterior femininity! How to dress in an attractive, dignified, classy manner! Specific documents about manners of dress from the Magisterium, the Popes and the Saints. Comprehensive guidelines for choosing tasteful attire. Resources on where to find beautiful, modest clothing. And much, much more!

Here is a pic of a beautifully modestly dressed lady that I found which led me to the the author Colleen’s book and we paired it with a pair of Thaqafah tri color mules.

Moma: the vintage style on your feet. The modern dandy footwear

An extended family. 38 dreamers that put heart, soul and passion for creating special and special shoes, with a strong personality and vintage mood. It’s to create Moma shoes.

Moma. Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Or.

Midnight Over My Action. A name that remembers the origin of the brand:  many sleepless nights spent around Europe, observing, discovering and searching for inspiration. Although more than 20 years have passed since the birth of Moma, Daniele and Gigio, two artisan brothers, have never stopped repeating how important passion and will are to make dreams come true.

This point of view comes to life day after day in the hands of artisans, artists, workers and designers and it takes the form of an out of the box pair of shoes, that’s why Moma shoes are worn, ruined, dirty or – as we say today – vintage. A brave choice considering the years when it was made, when vintage word was not in fashion yet. A choice that paid off.

And the secret is in Gironacci brothers’ words.

“We keep on doing what we like and what we like is not what the market demands. We are a company that still works following its own heart not its own business. When you do something with your heart, it lasts for a long time not just for one season. It’s for life.

Today Moma shoes are on the feet of men living in the four corners of the globe; this makes these shoes not just a simple accessory, but a way to express themselves. Moma footwear owes its specialness and its beauty to craftsmanship. In fact, each shoe sees the light still in the same small workshop in the heart of the Marche. A real resistance in a time of total standardization of goods and flattening of styles.

Worn, dirty, aged, Moma shoes are like wrinkles: every chromatic shifts, every irregularity, every detail that may seem a flaw, tells a story, an experience, a person. So, as time goes by, the beauty of MOMA shoes becomes more authentic and marked by life, just like a man’s face, in full compliance with the corporate philosophy.

A perfect mix of elegance and comfort: thanks to the 100% Made in Italy production and the leathers purchased from the best Tuscan tanners, Moma footwear is indestructible and very comfortable. Each shoe is different from every other one because the techniques used that include plant products: each leather reacts differently to the mixture of dyes, getting the “vintage effect”.

But how to wear a pair of Moma shoes?

Mixing vintage and modern. The shirt is inspired by the textures of retro furniture, just like the single-breasted herringbone vest by Messagerie in wool and linen blend. Match them with a pair of Moma lace-up in garment-dyed leather, with micro perforated decorations and used effect.

The wardrobe for young eccentrics comes from the Far East. Multi-coloured prints meet dandy details. For a man who knows how to live urban life. He is wrapped up in colourful, embroidered jacket to wear with a pair of Moma lace-ups, dark brown-coloured, made of genuine leather and fully perforated.

A striped jacket, in light nuances, a Panama on the head and a linen shirt: the flawless and timeless summer style of a gentleman. On his feet a pair of Moma loafers, made of genuine garment-dyed leather with tassels and visible stitching.

Sergio Tomani Handmade Spanish shoes

We are presenting a blast from the past for us, meaning finding this shoe brand again was so nostalgic for me that I could taste it.

Sergio Tomani was one of the shoe brands that I used to drool over in my teenage years while visiting the only store in my city who carried them which was dudes boutique on South street in Philadelphia,Pa.

I am so happy to see that they are still going strong and have kept the same aesthetic that makes them unique and grungy in my opinion.
