Baby the Star Shines Bright Poodle Going Out Shoes

poodle

Want to go out with your poodle today? Baby the Stars Shine Bright’s new  Poodle Going Out shoes will be the perfect match for you. These lovely shoes feature Baby’s logo embroidery on the right, and the cute little poodle on the left.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of poodle prints. They are just too 50’s for me. But I think putting the poodle on the shoes is not so bad. These shoes come in white, pink and black. I love the black one.
