Although it’s cold out side, the slightly longer days has us daydreaming of floral blossoms soon to come. Luckily, Lucky magazine feels the same way and chose our Tessa Floral as their shoe of the day…..
We love The Marcy Stop , a project from photographer Micol Cortese and her muse Lauren Gould. They celebrate their experiences living and swapping clothes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn — just off the Marcy stop of the JMZ subway line.
In fact we collaborated with The Marcy Stop for Holiday and Resort look book images, and that was so much fun…
Recently The Marcy stop posted images of Lauren’s outfit celebrating her 28th birthday, and she’s wearing our Callie boots… To see the entire spread, click here.
Happy Birthday Lauren!!!

Casey Floral debuts in Women’s Wear Daily! Sneak peak of Spring!!!
Ty McBride from Solestruck originally met Ce Ce when she showed her first line of skateboarder inspired vulcanized slip ons. Ty is running Solestruck at full speed and at the rate they are going, Solestruck is unstoppable! Here are some Q&A from the retailers’ recent blog post.
Solestruck writes: We love 80%20 around here, it’s perfect for Portland and fits our lifestyle around the office. What are the principle’s around the design and function of 80%20 that keep it fresh and on point?
Ce Ce says: I focus on the sweet spot of form and function- the perfect shoes that have the downtown edge, but also wearable to keep up with a very active lifestyle.
Solestruck writes: We see 80%20 selling to a very wide range of women, and shoppers. Is there really an age range who buys your collection?
Ce Ce says: Perhaps between 20-30. The brand has attracted a cult following with the “indie entrepreneur” movement, girls likely to have Tumblr blogs or stores on Etsy.
Solestruck writes: How many years has your brand been around- and when you first launched with customized slip-ons years ago, did you really see it turning into a full time lifestyle brand?
Ce Ce says: I started the brand in 2005- so it’s been seven years! The first 80%20 collection was inspired by girls who date skateboarders, and the hand painted slip-ons has a very Vans feel. However then I created the Original Hidden Wedge, and for me at least, this served as the padded bra of footwear!
Solestruck writes: What are the Top Five songs on repeat around the 80%20 HQ?
Ce Ce says:
Human League “The Things that Dreams are Made Of”
Washed Out “I Feel it All”
YACHT “Psychic City”
Juan MacLean “Happy House” (Prince Language Mix)
Empire of the Sun “We are the People”
Solestruck writes: Let’s say it’s 9 pm on a Friday and team Solestruck is on their way to meet you for dinner in NYC, where are we going?
Ce Ce says: Miss Lily’s, the hot Jamaican spot on Houston Street. Here’s a picture of our sales team at the restaurant.

We were so inspired by Plant-in City’s architectural terrariums that we asked one of the artists (and CeCe’s great friend) Huy to collaborate with us on giving our showroom a boost! CeCe’s iPhone was on hand to document Huy’s process of building a 21st Century home for our shoes.
Huy works on hanging shelves from the ceiling.
Voila! Our shoes have a an awesome new hanging home!
