A shoe is not just a shoe. It connects us to the Earth. The right shoe can transport us... make us believe we are capable of more. (Elizabethtown, 2005)
Are you and I anything alike? If we are you might share my feelings about a good quality shoe. I'm not talking something with about gadgets and whatnot, but about heart-felt design and a sole that allows your soles to feel the earth they're on. Maybe I lost you in some hippy dippy talk, or maybe you're nodding right along and wondering where you can find such a gem. If the latter is true, I highly recommend a self-made-mama store like Starry Knight Design on Etsy. Melanie hand crafts each foot ornament for the little loves in your life. Leather, Nubuck, Suede, timeless - these are all words her shop knows well and thrives by. Don't be afraid to fall in love, either, whereas some moccasins can run you half a hundy or more hers are sitting pretty at just under $25.00. That is a steal for the deal you will get.
She didn't forget the mama's though! Check out these beautiful leather cuffs and stand-out leather head bands, too. And grab a favorite bevvy - you're going to be there a while.
Just like nothing can compare to quality duds on your feet, the same can be said for one's hair. It's an outward expression of our inner self. For my daughter that means: playful, colorful, and fun. I fell in love with Sweet Things Bowtique for her clippys. Not because there are more options than days of the month, but because Rachel has an eye for what's trendy, and what speaks to one's mood. Ayara is sporting the blue ombré bow, but also loves to play in floral, metallic polka dot and mint. Heck she loves them all mostly because of the easy-on-and-off alligator clips that she doesn't detect with her super sassy no-bow sonar! Stock up for your tot at just $5.00 a pop! It's an easy
no frills way to dress up any little babe's style.
