GIVEAWAY | mm6 Maison Martin Margiela Oxfords


It's been a while since there's been a giveaway on the blog, but we're coming back with a biggie! The Portland shop Frances May is giving away one pair of neon patent leather lace-up oxfords by mm6 Maison Martin Margiela ($430). The West End neighborhood boutique opened five years ago by Pamela Baker-Miller and her grandmother Connie Codding. The store was named for Baker-Miller's great grandmother, Frances May, and caters to a wide swath of Portland's stylish and independent women—including Carrie Brownstein of Portlandia! So cool!

To enter the giveaway: leave a comment and show Frances May some like love on Instagram (@francesmayshop). A winner will be picked on Thursday evening! Good luck! I'm jealous I can't enter the contest, these are the perfect shoes for spring.

***The winner is Erin Fleming! Email me lizziegarrett(at)gmail and we'll hook you up!***

Amy Ragsdale said...

With a names like Connie Codding & Francis May, you have to feel a sense of style & independence. Kudos to Pamela for honoring her matriarchal lineage. With that said, if I were to win this fabulous pair of shoes, I would hand them down to my darling daughter who is doing her best to hold her own!

M said...

The shoes of my dream, I'll wear these to a wedding.

Melissa said...

Love these Margiela oxfords. Perfect for spring!

nito9nita said...

Oh yea! I'll be struttin through the streets of San Francisco, pretending not to see the startled shoe-envy looks. Sipping a coffee at Trouble, faking not noticing the covetous glances. Until, that is, you say to me..."Those shoes make me smile!!", and I say "Thanks, me too, they're happy shoes!"

Unknown said...

even if i don't win, i'm going to buy them anyway!

Nitika said...

Gorgeous shoes!

Ignuf said...

Whoa epic shoes! Would love these.

Andrea Rosandich said...

A plea of desperation sounds so much more significant, so much less fraught, in a different language. So, here's some Italian for shoes made in Italy "dammelo... per favore" Nothing quite like neon kicks to cut these Ohio clouds.

lalalalaurav said...

As a blonde, I tend to have trouble wearing neon highlighter yellow (one of my favourites!). These are the perfect spring option that gives us fairer-haired lasses an in on the trend. Beautiful shoes, and a beautiful boutique that makes me want to bump Portland up on my list of road trip destinations this summer!

Maria Lobikin said...

My birthday is coming up, and these would make the best birthday present. Just sayin'.

Hayley said...

Yes! Love those!

Lizzy Fallows said...

I would rock these in San Francisco!

Montréal Bobo said...

Molly Pringle said...

FRANCES MAY IS BRINGING THE HEAT!

Ashby Lee Collinson said...

Frances May is a crucial element to my style. Piecing together garbage from free bins and my dad's hand me downs, all I have to do is add just one piece from the store to be elevated to my highest potential. These kicks would look killer with the papier mache bikini I made for Frances May's insane pool party fashion show Last Splash! I never feel like a priss, I never feel like I'm homogenizing, I just feel like me, raised to the heights. P.S. PAM IS THE MOST KILLER BOOTY DANCER IN PORTLAND!

anna said...

Holy cow. Those shoes are the shit.

lifeisawagon said...
