Behind The Scenes

In our society of hype and paparazzi, there are still a collection of individuals who prefer to quietly reach their goals and achievements with little fanfare or attention. This makes them no less of a success than those who crave and shine in the spotlight.  It is just their preference to accomplish their dreams without being noticed by a crowd. For example: 1. In the Courtroom
Certainly, our present-day culture with 24/7 media access has developed an unnatural desire to be part of sensational court cases.

Global Smurfs Day

June 22 is Global Smurfs Day.  If you’re a child of the 80s, you may know about the Smurfs or enjoyed the recent reboot.  The history of Smurfdom actually pre-dates the 80s, so in honor of all things Smurf, we have some Smurf-inspired footwear. In fact, your grandparents may have been a fan of the smurfs before you, especially if you’re Belgian.  Belgian cartoonist Peyo created them way back in 1958.  For our would-be Smurfettes, Boston Proper has all you need to be fashionable.  We recommend the Jeweled Casual Sandal, with its rich blues and studded with gems.  You’ll be a very cute gnome prancing around in these sandals.
