DR. MARTENS for ROYAL MAIL (Exclusive)

At first glance, this special edition Dr. Martens looks ordinary enough. However, this shoe is not just any kind of special edition. It is made, exclusively, for UK’s national postal service, the Royal Mail. With a Royal Mail logo embossed on the heel, a higher-quality insole (industrial grade - so that the good mailman can walk a mile and not feel a thing), but without the usual yellow stitching, this unassuming yet versatile shoe will give your feet crazy amounts of comfort and could just be your most loyal colleague from job to job.
And since it is not for sale anywhere, if you want one of these, you will have to convince a Royal Mail employee to give them to you, or, come to wondermomo :-)

JOHN GALLIANO Patent Leather/Suede Hi-Cut Sneakers

Life hasnt been too rosy for former Dior creative director John Galliano, after his outburst in Paris earlier this year. But with rehab and the compassion of loyal supporters, it looks like the designer is moving pass bad press and getting back on his game. His solo line, the House of John Galliano, has been making waves in the fashion community, with recent collections being remarked as some of the designer’s best work to date. Reviews have even proclaimed that “in only 20 outfits, John Galliano has made his case that whatever kind of drunken slander he dishes out, there is no debate that he is a fantastic designer”.

Although in
spired by old-school hi-cut basketball shoes, this John Galliano sneaker, with its contrasting patent leather and suede upper accented with the brand emblem, is more playful than seriously sporty. Show it off with your rolled-cuff jeans for some serious caught-you-looking appeal!
¥44,100 JPY)

The support of long-time friend Kate Moss is no doubt a boost for John Galliano, who was asked to create the dress for the supermodel’s July wedding to British rocker Jamie Hince.


Dance and SFX -- a good start to any weekend.
Happy Saturday!

Happy Thanksgiving

Warm wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to our U.S. friends.

Original Caption: 11/10/1950-Hollywood, California - Wearing a costume that is half-Puritan, half-chorine, pretty Marilyn Monroe seems to have little desire to hunt turkey after finding this gobbler, still "stumping" long after Election Day. Currently seen in "All About Eve," this movie starlet seems just as frightened by the gun as the bird is.
