Front and Center: Freshly Picked Feature + A Giveaway

I opened our front door the other day to a wonderful sight sitting on the doorstep...
A box from Freshly Picked moccs!
 
 
I could hardly contain myself as I practically ran back up the stairwell and into our kitchen to get something to cut open the box. I lifted the top flaps, turned the box over and into my hands slipped a bag, a freshly picked bag... with the softest and most perfect little pair of baby moccs you ever did feel... and looks wise? They are beautiful! A work of art!

Needless to say I was so excited I hardly got anything done for next two hours as I waited for my nine and a half month old daughter Bella to wake up from her nap so I could try them on her (and yes I almost woke her up to try them on her several times, but thankfully my better judgment got the best of me and I didn't lol).

We chose size 3 moccs in Gold and we couldn't be happier: with a size 3 they fit her good, not too big, not too small, a little room grow, I can already see that we will most definitely get a lot of wear out of them and they will go perfectly with the outfit I am working on putting together for her 1st birthday party coming up here in a couple months!

Freshly Picked moccs are made of the highest quality leather (100% Genuine Leather) and I think the thing that surprised me about them most was how soft they are! I don't know why, but I thought they would be somewhat stiff and require a "breaking in" period, but nope, no "breaking in" required, they are extremely comfortable and cozy on my daughter's feet and she loves wearing them!

They're also lighter than I thought they'd be, they're light as a feather! Which is wonderful for small feet that are crawling and in the beginning stages of learning to walk.

 
Freshly Picked Moccs also don't come as a "left" moccasin and "right" moccasin, they come straight and as your child wears them they shape uniquely to their little tootsies! Bella has already started to shape hers after only wearing them a handful of times! I've also heard that in time their little foot will be imprinted on the bottom of the moccasin, forever sealing the memories of everywhere your child journeyed and wandered... that is one thing I am looking forward to and after she is done wearing  them they will become a keepsake I will never part with.

As for the price, yes, they are a little pricey, but after holding a pair in my hands, seeing them on my daughter and feeling the quality, I think they are worth every bit of the $60 price tag they sell for! Maybe they're not something you could afford everyday, but at least for a special occasion would definitely be worth it, plus like I said, I can tell they're going to last a very long time!

 
I also love the elastic on the ankle of the shoe, they actually stay on! Unlike most regular baby shoes that babies kick or pull off in a matter of minutes (sometimes seconds). 

Upon closing my review of Freshly Picked Moccs I have only good things to say about them to anyone who might ask, from the wonderful people they have working for them to the quality and beauty of the moccs (their shininess gets me every time lol), to the fact that they were kind enough to give me this pair for Bella to review and last but not least they are giving one of you the chance to win your very own pair of Freshly Picked Moccs for your little one!

  9. Your blog is adorable! I love your daughter's matching crown and gold moccs! We got our first pair a month or so ago, and LOVE them - they are the only shoe my daughter (19mths) does not take off as soon as we get in the car or home. She loves them and that makes me happy :)))
