Minnetonka at the Thirst Project Gala

Recently Minnetonka had the exciting opportunity to attend the Third Annual Thirst Project Gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  The Thirst Project is an unbelievably inspiring grassroots organization founded by Seth Maxwell who’s mission is to raise awareness about the world water crisis and to provide safe, clean water and sanitation to 1 Million people by 2015. What an amazing goal!

At this year’s Thirst Project Gala, Hollywood celebrities had a chance to shop the latest styles and colors of Minnetonka mocs.  Chyler Leigh, Sarah Drew, Audrina Patridge and Lance Bass were amongst the many celebrities attending the Gala raising awareness about the world water crisis.  The Gala successfully raised over $188,000 for clean water wells that will be built in Swaziland and Colombia.

“Like” The Thirst Project on Facebook and visit www.thirstproject.org to find out how you can get involved in this great cause.  And don’t forget to vote for the Thirst Project in the Do Something Awards here!

Awaiting the celebrity red carpet arrivals at the Third Annual Thirst Project Gala!

Minnetonka Blogger Spotlight:  Abigail Rotzell of Sweet Lasses

Twice a month Minnetonka spotlights the style of bloggers we absolutely love in our Minnetonka Blogger Spotlight.   This week we’re excited to spotlight Abigail Rotzell the blogger behind one of our favorite style blogs Sweet Lasses.  We’ve love how Abigail effortlessly styled three different looks infused with the perfect amount of boho beauty featuring a few of our Minnetonka favorites the El Paso moc, the Woodstock boot and the Two Button boot.

Take a look at Abigail’s Minnetonka story along with whose style inspires her in our Q&A and be sure to visit Sweet Lasses for more style inspirations.

What’s your Minnetonka Story?
My first Minnetonka purchase was the 3-Layer Fringe Boot (should be a staple item in everyone’s closet!). The first time I wore the boots out, I paired them with a sundress in the middle of July and fell in love with not only the bohemian style but their comfort, ease and versatility. I have never looked back whether in snow, sand or the good ole pavement, they are a timeless item that will be in my closet forever and never go out of style.

If you could explain your style in one word or phrase, what would it be?
#BohoBeauty (My #1 tag on @SweetLasses Instagram)

Who’s style inspires you?
Hands down, celebrity-wise: MK Olsen, Kate Moss, Gillian Zinser and Sienna Miller. Blogger-wise: Something Navy & Song-of-Style and otherwise: all those amazing lookbooks by Free People, Street Style and TUMBLR!

What song do you currently have on repeat?
Peoples by Cheers Elephant or anything Alabama Shakes and The Lumineers!

Where is your favorite summer destination?
OBX by far..beach, sun, toes in the sand and relaxation.

My Minnetonka must-have item is…
The Woodstock Boot because it completes all my festival-looks this summer!


My Minnetonka Story: Sarah Heckle

My Minnetonka Story: Sarah Heckle of Tulle and Trinkets

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My very first pair of Minnetonka moccasins were the studded mocs, and the two button boot wasn’t far behind.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka’s purchased?
My first Minnetonka’s were purchased two summers ago when I lived in little-old Ocala, Florida for a summer internship. I came across a Handbag Factory that happened to also sell Minnetonka’s. It was definitely a unique shopping experience. The place had no AC (remember – this is central Florida in July!) and the sweetest lady was running the show. I fell in love with my Minnetonka’s then and there! Now, the other shoes in my closet suffer a little jealousy.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
My favorite memory would have to be the Jonsi concert my now-husband and I went to. I obsessed over what I was going to wear to this concert. I finally settled on a retro-inspired sweater, jeans, and my Minnetonka’s. Oh — and the concert was amazing!

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
My Minnetonka’s accompanied me to the Dominican Republic for my honeymoon this past October! They were perfect for walking excursions and they paired perfectly with the beachy and breezy suitcase of clothes I packed.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I think I have a split personality when it comes to style. Part of me is very girly and feminine: pastels, bows, dresses, and ballet flats. But the other part of me is so drawn to 60s and 70s-inspired boho style: maxi skirts, flowing tops, pared-down makeup & hair — and my Minnetonka’s!
