“Those Shoes are SO expensive!” Thursdays is a feature that I am thinking of bringing back!

To my readers, fans, and friends, I am writing this post to let you know that I am back to blogging and keeping you updated about 34 Minutes shoes. I have been busy behind the scenes working with factories, technicians, designers, web masters, photographers, advertising execs, writers, editors, consultants, PR representatives, stylists, and all of the other people who help to get a new brand up and running.

Now that we are up and running with our new styles coming to a store near you very shortly (and even some online stores too!), I will be posting updates of new styles, new collections, tradeshows, exhibits, sales, speaking engangements, trunk shows, etc.
