Do you know this feeling, when you discover a shop or an online shop and think: oh, I like that! and that and that... in fact, if I had a shop I would like it to be exactly like this one... That is exactly what happened to me when I discovered Babyssimo - the shop for small citizens of the world, and I ordered some of my favourite things for Ella from this online shop. I like it so much, that I thought I really needed to share it with you.
And you know what I discovered? The owner Olivia is also French! So now I understand, the Liberty fabric, the French magazines and the Japanese items! Exactly my cup of tea! It is so French and so international at the same time.

1. Belle & Boo Cushion "Boo"
2. Linen Dog "grey-white"
3. Oeuf NYC Alpaca Wool Sweater "Cat"
4. Tocoto Vintage Knit Baby Shoes "Powder Pink"
5. Tocoto Vintage Corduroy Overall
6. Reversible Plaid Blanket "Liberty Betsy"
7. Tocoto Vintage Jersey Shirt "Colette" grey
8. Belle & Boo Wall Sticker "Hug" A3
