“Le Petit Prince” (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery has always been one of my favorite books when I was growing up. It’s so weird, yet so relatable (maybe b/c I’m weird? ok unique is a better word =) A few years ago on a trip to Hakone, Japan – my friends and I randomly stumbled upon the Le Petit Prince Museum! Oh it was magical! What a random place to have it, but here is why:

“However, today, Saint-Exupery has so many fans around the world that we believe he himself would be greatly surprised to discover so many friends. Following the 5 hundred million bells given to him by the Little Prince, this time, he as been gifted with millions and millions of friends. Among them, he has particularly many friends in Japan. And his friends in Japan have given Saint-Exupery a truly splendid gift. This gift is the museum in Hakone. Moreover, this museum will be a wonderful gift for those who visit it. The museum is a place where the serenity, poetry, and passion of The Little Prince and its author are communicated to the visitors.”

 

Love these shoes!! My friend Anvy sent me the link and said she thought I might like some of the stuff. Boy was she right! =) Recently, I also saw these same shoes in a Japanese magazine I picked up.  Super cute!
