OMG. Two of the loves of my life: shoes and chocolate. Combined. I'm flipping out just a little, y'all, and I had to share. Are you flipping now, too? Thanks to another blogger who tipped me off to this, I found this quaint chocolatier in Dallas (yup, just a short drive away from my stomping grounds...eek!). CocoAndre crafts amazing chocolate European-style truffles...and HEELS! Polka-dot pumps with hearts, you guys. It's almost too good to be true.
Andrea Pedraza has been crafting 100-percent cocoa butter-based, raw chocolates (with no preservatives or artificial flavors! hey, is that no calories, too? sigh.) in her shop for the past few years after working in the industry for 25 years. And I hope one day soon (possibly on my trip to Dallas this summer?!) I get to meet this talented chocolatier...and, err, sample just a few as well.
The high heels range in price from $35-55 (and many mirror a Christian Louboutin red-soled pump!). Much less than you'll find in your local shoe department, although I'm almost thinking they're too adorable to eat...I'd buy one to eat, one to admire in my freezer for life? Wink.
