Project Runway's Mondo Guerra's Limited-Edition Shoes for Crocs

Every fan of Project Runway knows that Mondo Guerra was robbed of his deserved victory on Season 8 of the fashion competition. And we rejoiced when he won the first season of Project Runway All-Stars. Currently, the uber-talented Mexican-American designer is a mentor on Project Runway: Under the Gunn and to celebrate the launch of his limited-edition shoe collection for Crocs, Mondo hosted a viewing party of the show at the new Crocs store in Manhattan's hectic Herald Square shopping district.

Project Runway fan favorite and All-Stars winner, Mondo Guerra.

The admittedly moody but lovable Mondo told us being a mentor is harder than being a contestant and he really goes to bat for his designers, whom he affectionately calls "my children." Mentees from the show (contender Blake Smith from Anya's team and quirky Isabelle Donola from Nick's team) along with past contestants (fellow Season 8 alum, Ivy Higa) attended the launch event to show their love.  Curiously, no-one from team Mondo was there.  Hopefully that means one of his designers won the competition? Fingers crossed.

Mondo for Crocs Kadee Colorblock Flat ($39.99), Gianna Dot Flat ($49.99), Kadee Geo Flat ($39.99)

While supplies last, Mondo for Crocs will be sold exclusively at the 34th Street location and then released nationally in September. The three styles range from $39.99-$49.99 and feature Mondo's signature bold patterns on some of Crocs' most popular flats, and since we're all about comfort without sacrificing style (well, there was that one pair of orthopedic-looking Aerosoles we rocked a few years back), we're living for these shoes right about now.


By the way, besides Mondo's adorable shoes, who knew Crocs sold more than those comfy but clunky faux clogs?  For spring and summer they have a variety of cute wedges and boat shoes.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
