adorable red moccasins? FOUND!

so, remember the red mocs that you all loved so much?

many of you asked where you could snag a pair- but ALAS! i had no idea, since i found them via a consignment store.

well- after much internet searching, the Holy Grail has been located! when i finally clicked on the link that brought me to a full page of them- i cheered. i feel like i should get some sort of award for being able to find stuff on the internet- cause i'm pretty good at it. no lie.

so, i quickly clicked & snagged a couple pairs. they arrived yesterday & i practically did a jig as i opened the box:

now you might be wondering why i grabbed 2 pairs of the same color? well, i did it for you guys.

yes- that's right. you can thank me later.

the red pair i have are a size 3 & they JUST fit. like actually, if i'm honest with myself- they're too small. real snug like. but just wearable. so i assumed a size 4 would be best- but then i wasn't sure. what if a 4 was an ok fit but still too small? so maybe i should get a size 5? and there are no sizing explainations- so i was at a loss.

so i bought 1 pair in each size. 4 & 5. Amimoc Infant (4) & Amimoc Toddler (5).

i'm happy to report that the 4's are PERFECT! like literally- perfect. they're big enough & she has room to grow but they're not too big. she can walk in them just fine & her little toes can breathe. i'm guessing they're last her through the winter & spring.

the 5's will probably fit her starting this next summer/fall. maybe- considering that her feet never grow- maybe through next winter. we'll see.

so there you go:

adorable mocs.

now where to get them? Sears Online! go ahead & click here: Squee worthy mocs

now, they're not cheap. $32.99 for a pair of infant shoes isn't a drop in the bucket. but they're hand made in Canada & the quality is amazing. Sheepskin & Sheepswool & gorgeous stiching & coloring. plus, the pull ties are a dream come true- they make taking them on & off a breeze. no squeezing in chubby bebe feet- just slip them on & tie them up!

BUT HERE'S THE REALLY AWESOME PART!!!

right now Sears is having a Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale! and free shipping over $49.

so that mean you get 2 pairs for $49.48! that's a total steal people. TOTAL!

i almost fell over when i saw the final price. in fact- i'm considering ordering a couple more pairs for baby bird#2...squee!

so yeah- i expect 99% of you to run to your computers & start filling your Sears cart with baby/toddler mocs. because it's the right thing to do.

de nada.

THANK YOU for finding these! And I usually fancy myself as pretty good at finding stuff on the internet, so I'm a little ashamed that I didn't find 'em first...

Those are so adorable!! Perfect for fall. Quick question - your pictures look great so I was wondering what type of lens do you use on your camera? I just have the kit lens that came with my Nikon D90 right now and am researching which one to get next. Thanks :))

no problem ladies- i'll do my best to bring you the fashion goods i find :)

Lynn- thank you! my main lense =
35mm f/1.8

it's the best fixed lense for your buck (IMO)- it'll run you about $198 and it's worth every penny. i say go with the 35mm over the 50mm because you won't do as much backing up to fit things in!

i also have a zoom lense that i hardly ever use anymore- 18-200 f/3.5. great lense- but the 35mm is my fav :)

Katie said...

what brand and model of camera do you have?
my husband and I are thinking of investing in a "real" camera. our cameras are 6.5 years old, only 5mp, but our droid incredible phones have 8mp!

Katie: i shoot with a Nikon D90.

Canon also puts out many a sweet camera- but i'm a Nikon girl :)

Love the pics. Super cute shoes, but I'm too much of a cheapo to buy them. Maybe santa will, ;) LOL!
