Spring time is near , and the lil tot's need a new pair of baby shoes !!!! So not every kiddie Ages 6 and under has the authority or the access to a pair of made for tots louboutin-esque mini heels, but I just love the classic styles from our childhood past. Whether its Red, Pink, Purple,Blue, Brown, Black or White , Patent, Leather or Suede .. There is a nostalgia when I look at these shoes - back to when I was in grade school , when everything was so simple , sigghhhh. I would wear the leather styles to school, and the patent versions for special occasions / birthdays . Oh how I miss the days when children were dressed like.... Children! Think "Sound of Music", "Mary Poppins" ( I LOVE that movie! ), or for a modern -Day version of classic kiddie-chic tots, take the Lee-Simmons girls . I LOVE the fact that they actually dress like children. Suri is on the list as well, although she is a bit Avant -Garde with her Fashions / shoe choices. With the upcoming birth of mini-posh Spice , I'm sure that baby will be in only the most stylish baby clothes/ shoes .. I know somewhere between the one of a kind threads, baby Posh will have a classic pair like the ones above.
Happy Kiddie-Chic Shoe Shopping !!
