The Holiday Spirit of Thursday Shoes!

BlogHer Original Post

Dear Thursday shoe followers, I am admittedly ill prepared for today's post -- I'm recovering from Thanksgiving holiday travel and a nasty cold. My beloved colleague and fellow shoe enthusiast, BlogHer's Director of Market Research Jane Collins, came to the rescue and offered to ghostwrite today's post on behalf of the Events team. (Thanks, Jane!)

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving, and instead of our normal weekly office shoe shot, we asked folks to submit shoe circle photos from their various family gatherings. The winning entry (well, to be honest ... the only entry) was from Monique Maestas-Gower who gave us this thrilling picture of fourteen extremely diverse feet. How fun and adorable to feature all types of shoes, including both genders as well as (for the first time ever) a baby foot! Although the toddler does seem to be missing an actual shoe, he is rocking an attractive classic sock.

As we approach the season to be jolly, BlogHer’s shoe circle team wants to know if shoes are on your holiday wish list. Do you hope that someone will give you a DSW or Famous Footwear gift card? Or perhaps you’ll find a nice soft pair of Uggs under the tree with your name on the box? It’s getting cold and rainy in Northern California, where most of the shoe circle ladies live. Maybe we are all wishing for a nice new pair of flip-flops, as long as they come with the sugary white sand of a tropical beach and a week’s worth of vacation!

And here is the BlogHer team's Thursday shoe shot:
