I have a weakness for baby shoes. Seriously, adorable pint sized shoes just get me every time. I received these handmade moroccan slippers from Baba Souk and oh man, are they cute (and in the cutest packaging). They're teeny, sparkly, gold and, for extra cute factor, are traditionally called "babouches"!
I could not wait to get them onto the feet of my new niece, but baby Norah had other plans... liking kicking and squirming and you know, not wearing the slippers.
It was laughable. In fact, I laughed a lot before finally deciding cute toes beside the cute slippers was as good as it was going to get. Any mom will tell you babies and shoes are a constant struggle, these backless beauties were no exception.
So, are they tote around the grocery store practical? No. But they are ridiculously cute and would make a fantastic keepsake and decor item (I'm all about decorating with shoes). Plus, I'm pretty sure it's an auntie's job to gift ridiculously cute, impractical items, right?
Thanks to Norah for being my model and to Baba Souk for the slippers!
I'm a huge fan of this lovely Canadian shop. Owner, Stephanie has curated some unique finds from local and international designers and some amazing handmade items from Morocco. She handpicked these little "babouches" from a moroccan souk market! How cool is that?
Stephanie has so kindly offered up a $50 gift certificate to one of you, make sure you pop on over and check out all her goodies. I'm loving this tote, vase, pillow, 'jimmy the hook' and of course, the baby slippers.
Good luck and happy shopping!
