Ronnie Fieg’s Fashion Hikers

  I have always had an internal battle with winter and the attire. On one hand, I absolutely love the idea of getting bundled up and layering lovely coats upon lovely clothes underneath, adding a nice scarf and looking well presented. But the battle came down below with the footwear, a battle that I am sure that many people who wear nice shoes have. What do you do when it snows? Suffer, that’s for sure! […]

Sebago’s Comeback

It truly is funny how everything reinvents itself and what was once the ‘in’ thing in popular culture 30-50 years ago becomes once again the ‘in’ thing in today’s modern culture. The two styles that frighten me about this constant reinvention, though, are the 80’s and men wearing bell-bottom’s with platform shoes. I cringe just thinking about the return of those atrocities.
