miss b loves........TOMS shoes and sunglasses



I read about the original TOMS shoes some time ago but recently discovered at Kim's blog that they had introduced gorgeous ballet flats. A quick visit to the TOMS website and I spotted ........WEDGES!

I had my eye on a lovely aqua pair which I mentioned in my espadrilles post here but last Saturday, while shopping in St AnnesI just couldn't resist these floral ones.




I have wanted to support the TOMS cause for a while now. For every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS give a new pair to a child in need.




You can read more about the One for One project here. 




By September 2010 TOMS had already donated over a million new shoes to children around the world and Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS, was struck by the poverty in the communities they were serving and he has now launched TOMS eyewear
via
When someone buys a pair of TOMS sunglasses another person in need receives either medical care, a pair of prescription glasses or sight-saving surgery. You can read about the scheme here.


TOMS is more than just a shoe company, it is now a One for One company and I'm sure that restoring sight is the beginning of many more worthwhile projects.............

  7. Oh, these floral shoes are so pretty, and you can wear so many colors with them. TOMS sounds like they are very charitable. How wonderful it is when people think of the children in our world. Have a nice weekend.

  10. Espadrilles are the perfect summer shoe that you can wear with just about anything. I love the little wedge. These are all so cute and comfy looking ~ the flats as adorable. I like what they're doing with regards helping children in need :) Thanks for sharing!

  18. I love it Miss B.!...you know Blake Mycoskie idea and Tom's movement were born in Argentina, my country, and that light blue and white stripes in Tom's logo represent the argentinian flag...thats because the Tom's shoes inspiration arose from the argentinian "alpargata" ...
    Big hugs, dear!
