Princess Shoes

Back in college I had a pair of gold ballet flats.  They were lightweight, comfortable, and dainty in the way that makes ballet flats so appealing.

One day when I was wearing these particular shoes, the little boy I was babysitting came up to me with a very serious look on his face.  He leaned in close (probably so his older brother wouldn't hear) and asked me if I was a princess.   A bit confused and ultimately delighted, I surpressed my giggles and looked at him with equal sincerity and inquired, "Why do you ask that?"    He pointed to my shoes and said, "Those are golden princess shoes."

And he was right.  Ballet flats are pretty enough for a princess to wear, and the ones that truly resemble ballet slippers have this feminine quality that is so chic and easy.  I've recently fallen in love with Yosi Samra's ballet flats and am thinking it's time I get a new pair of golden shoes.
