Well, hello everybody! In my head I’m saying that like Aunt Bethany from Christmas Vacation. Don’t throw me down, Clark! Actually, now that I think about it, Aunt Bethany is my style icon for this holiday season. Witness:
ANYWAY! I said I would take a little break for the summer, and accidentally took a big break for like six months. But it’s not like I was just lounging around sipping mai tais (I mean… I did do that a little bit). New Old Fashion was still in full swing (more on that later), and I partnered with my sister and my dad to create a line of children’s shoes.
Yes, that’s right. CHILDREN’S SHOES. More specifically, VINTAGE INSPIRED children’s shoes. And they’re so stinking cute. We use vintage patterns from our family’s long-standing manufacturing business and modern leathers in awesome colors. I wrote about our family’s business a little bit here. Here are a few of my favorites and their links.
Each pair is custom made in our small historic factory in Central Pennsylvania. You can check out our full collection at Zimmerman Shoes.
Now that Zimmerman Shoes has been launched into the big wide open internet, I’ll be bouncing around between here and there. Check back for more on New Old Fashion, and maybe (MAYBE!) an Aunt Bethany-inspired holiday outfit post. I kind of can’t stop thinking about it now.
