Freshly-Picked Moccasins Review

I had the great honor of reviewing one of my favorite baby products...Freshly-Picked moccasins!!

I've been following this company on Instagram for a while now and fell in love with these little leather shoes. While watching television one day, I saw them on ABC's Shark Tank and my jaw nearly dropped. It was as if seeing a family friend or relative. I felt like I knew the owner, Susan Petersen, because I was so familiar with her story. When it came time for me to pick which color I wanted I literally stared at my computer for more than an hour trying to decide. The colors are just delicious (especially the new assortments of neon colors that were recently released). I finally chose ebony. I decided to stick with black because I wasn't sure if I would make an outfit for a boy or girls to match.

I was inspired to make my first boy's outfit and boy oh boy am I proud (pun intended)!

I made shorts using the kid shorts pattern from Dana Made It. I drafted my own back pockets to give it a bit of detail. Click here to see my post on it. I made the hat using Lippy Brands basic beanie pattern with a minor edit using the black bias tape detail.

So here's the skinny on the moccs. They're simply adorable. They came packaged in a white drawstring pouch with the Freshly-Picked logo on the front. Upon taking them out I immediately recognized the smell of genuine leather. The moccs looked exactly as the photo on their website. When trying the shoes on my model, I was having a little difficulty getting them on because I was nervous about popping the elastic but it held up just fine. I am very happy with them.

Freshly-Picked has allowed me to do a giveaway on my Instagram account @its_chaiche which should be happening in July. More info coming soon.
