* shree moni & baileys pop...
shari monique, my bff & shoe designer of the shree moni shoe collection, was one of five designers chosen by the baileys liquor brand to design a holiday shoe to be auctioned off in the baileys nyc pop up shop. pop up shops are everywhere, & baileys refuses to miss out on the action. the holiday shoe pop up shop will open its doors in nyc november 11th-14th, & will be located on 421 west broadway between prince & spring streets. every shoe in the pop up shop, from designer lines like casedei, l.a.m.b., report signature & more, will be sold for just $75!!!!!!! all proceeds will go toward the "clothes off our back" charity.
