Handmade Indian Princess Shoes
Handmade shoes are a rarity in my world (though a fellow-bloger, Zo, who takes Me Made May very seriously has tried it), so they seem extra special when I do come across them. I got these in Dubai, in the old (Bur Dubai) souq. An Indian craftsman there turned these out regularly. The shoe design is fairly simple, so it's the embroidery & decoration that caught my eye.
They are all little-girl sized. I could have had some made for me, but the little ones were irresistible; I'd probably never be able to bring myself to wear them if they did fit me!
