Drop TOMS, Not Bombs

Posted in fashion by Dani on December 2, 2009

Good afternoon, digital darlings! Sorry for the recent super speedy posts, but this week has been loca! Haha. Hopefully, things will begin to slow down towards the end of this week as they often do.  

As local malls become adorned with electric blue lights, faux cotton snow, the scent of pine, along with an extensive assortment of wrapping paper, one thing is becoming very clear: Christmas is fast approaching. You know what that means… time to start thinking about gifts to give to your loved ones on the 25th. Why not give one that looks dapper and makes a difference?

For the month of December, I will be implementing a column based off of  Chicago Social Magazine‘s article, “What Gives?” called, “What Gives? Wednesdays,” in which I will feature a new fashion forward cause every Wednesday. This week’s? TOMS.

Skimming websites on Sunday afternoon, I soon noticed a fad amongst not only fervent fashion bloggers but unassuming sneak peeps

too. Four words, folks: TOMS are the bomb. Not only do they reinvent the classic boat shoe, but this cool company also supports a very worthwhile cause, one that is unmistakable in their slogan–With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for one. Here are a number of my favorite pairs featured on their website. Want to visit the website? Click on a shoe below. TOMS away…

Aren't these simply adorable? I love the color contrast between the navy blue and the bubblegum pink.

These shoes are sick. They really make me feel like dancing! Haha.

The script on the shoes give it a cool, funky and artistic edge.

Who can resist a pair of splatter painted sneaks? ...and guess what? They're HAND painted!

I love the message on the shoe, "The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter." --Mark Twain (Aww... Haha.)

How cute and cuddly are these puppies! (Pun intended.) Along with being soft, these sneaks are bright and bubbly!

Glitter has the ability to make anyone happy. Haha.

Ooh... I just love the color, charcoal... and tiny animal print too.

Have a beautiful day!

      Corduroy always makes me feel “warm and fuzzy” inside. Haha. …and the splatters are so fun and artsy! Hmm… good question, Shannon. I’m not sure yet. Perhaps, I should add that to my Christmas list… Haha.

    Dearest Dani,

    What a win-win opportunity for the shopper during the holiday season. In this case, the purchaser gets a pair of great shoes and gives a pair of great shoes with a single purchase.

    Thank you for raising awareness about children in need and an opportunity to help.

    All my love, mom
