Tuesday Shoesday : Minna Parikka

One of the reasons I love fashion so much is because of all the fun one can have with clothing. On Monday you can look ready for tea with the Queen and on Tuesday look better suited for a world tour with Rihanna. As Alice in Wonderland once said, "I'm never sure what I'm going to be, from one minute to another." So why not fall down the rabbit hole and start having some fun with what you wear? Minna Parikka certainly is.

Parikka began designing shoes as a high schooler in Helsinki. Now the talented Finn produces a high end line of rabbit inspired shoes that can be seen on the feet of top bloggers like Chiara Ferragni and Blaire Edie, as well as in the pages of top magazines all over the world. She even has her own first-class postage stamps in Finland! In addition to her signature rabbit ear styles, Parikka's line offers other whimsically decorated sneakers and flats, as well as a children's line.

Check out some of her top selling designs below, then hop on over to Shopbop to get a pair of your own.
