The Heel Deal

99Our fave girl-power quote: “Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels” (Faith Whittlesey). Heels are the ultimate symbol of girliness, and they’re not just for big girls anymore. Seattle moms Britta Bacon and Hayden Porter recently launched one funny company: Heelarious, your source for Baby’s first high heels. Heelarious offers six styles of baby booties made to look like high heels for infants ages zero through six months; the elastic instep strap and elasticized back keep the booties on. Imagine Baby in heels of leopard print, patent pink, zebra stripes, or shimmery black, and you’ll understand why the creators warn that these adorable booties ($35) may cause extreme smiling and hysterical laughter when in use. If Baby tries to stand up, the soft heel simply collapses. These sassy booties make a unique shower gift, or the perfect conversation starter when Baby goes out and about.

Bonus: everyone who emails Heelarious with a story of their mini Carrie Bradshaw in action is entered to win a free pair, and to be featured on the site.
