CHARLOTTE ROSE X FAWN & FINCH
Sometimes we hear stories that touch us in so many ways, that we feel compelled to share them with you. This is one such story.
In January this year, our gorgeous friend, Sarah Jane Young’s daughter, Charlotte Rose, was born into heaven at 21 weeks. To say that this is the most difficult, heart-breaking thing that any mother-to-be can go through, is an understatement. Sarah Jane's loss was so deep, so raw and so real; and felt by thousands of others, not least of whom those who have experienced the same tragic circumstances.
Sarah Jane has decided to honour Charlotte Rose's memory, as she explains it, "along with all the other babies who grew their tiny wings too soon". In memory of Charlotte Rose, Meagan from Fawn & Finch, one of our favourite online boutiques for children and mummas, was compelled to collaborate with Sarah Jane to design a pair of shoes with all proceeds going towards Sands Victoria, a support organisation for bereaved parents and families.
The shoes Meagan makes are honestly the most darling little things and you can imagine how special it was to design the Charlotte Rose Moccasin T-Bar shoes. You'll see in the photos below, Sarah Jane's daughter Mia Grace wearing the Charlotte Rose shoes.
Made from 100% leather and with the roses illustrated by the amazing artist, Cass Deller, these little shoes are temper tantrum proof (which we love!!) and are only $43. We think its music to all parents’ ears when they can dress their children stylishly for an affordable price – especially when all proceeds go towards such a worthwhile and wonderful cause.
