Small Shop Spotlight...
We love supporting other small shops for various reasons, the quality, the uniqueness, the personal touches, the limited nature of the items, the care shown with each order, and the fantastic people who own and run them...and here are a few we would like to shine a light on them, because they should been seen...they need to be seen....be sure to stop by their shops and check them out....
Lola and Wren
If you love tutus and well...even if you don't...you will love this shop!! Tracy the creator and shop owner is AMAZING! We have been purchasing handmade Tutus and Tutu dresses at Lola and Wren for many years, we have never been disappointed. She makes a multitude of styles, from traditional to modern, as well as amazing themed tutus, dresses and costumes. If you get the chance to just check our her work, you really should. And my girls still use tutus we purchased over 2 years ago, they hold up so well. There is also a variety of fun accessories available as well, from Leos to Legwarmers. Oh...and did I mention these items are available for babies, kids and adults!!

I absolutely love being able to tell a story about a small shop that I found, purchased from and loved! This is definitely one of them. The shop owner LaChandra is so sweet and very helpful as far as style and sizing. LaChandra creates by hand, turbans, head wraps and bows with beautiful unique fabrics. The fabrics are soft and functional, perfect for the tiniest baby to any adult. Here are some examples, but also an in use photo with my own 2 girls, who absolutely adored these head wraps, they don't stretch out either, which is super important.
Shop the Facebook Group and stay informed, there is even a calendar that shows upcoming item drops, which I love, I might even snag the idea and use it my group!!

Bitty and Zo
Bitty and Zo is a fun little shop that makes the cutest Felt Flowered and embellished headbands and clips! I found this shop a year or so ago through a friend. My girls own several fun pieces which you can use for everyday or dress them up for more formal needs. The owner Trisha is super sweet and even does customs from time to time. There are so many amazing styles and colors to choose from for any occasion or outfit.

This is a handmade shop for children's clothing, primarily for girls styles. Her style in my opinion is classic with a little edge. Super comfy fabrics that are easy for your little to move around in. My own children have several pieces from this shop, which we frequent. The owner Kathy, creates tops, dresses, leos, bummies and several other styles. The items from this shop can be made to order or ready to ship, the selection varies almost weekly so do not hesitate on ordering on an item, but never, ever disappoints.

This is our favorite shop for fun handmade socks! I think I first purchased from Jessica almost 2 years ago. They style and quality is unmatched! The prints are insanely cute and unique, PLUS YOU CAN ALSO GET SOLID COLORS LIKE NEONS! They pair so well with so many of our shorts and shorties! She also makes various other items but specializes in Socks, Bummies AND the cutest pin back buttons to match her items. They are perfect to add to our denim jackets.

You want to put cute hair accessories on your adorable little girl, but nothing stays in her hair. Your baby doesn’t have much hair and what hair she has is very fine and thin. When you find headbands, they end up leaving a mark on her head. Not only do you want functional, but you want fashionable, classic and fun.
Sometimes you want hair accessories that match a particular outfit, or something custom made just for your special girl. You also don’t want to spend a fortune, but you want a high quality, well-made product.
This is why Moo G Clips was created (pronounced Moo-Jee and it comes from a nickname my family gave my daughter when she was a little baby). When my 12 year old daughter, Celia, was a baby she didn’t have much hair and the little hair she had was thin. I wanted to find the same things you want to find now; hair accessories that are functional, fashionable, fun, and that stay in! One of the stores I went shopping at told me that being handmade meant they had to be expensive. I wanted to prove her wrong, and went to buy clip-making supplies that very day. It has been more than ten years since that day and I haven’t looked back. When you come to Moo G Clips, you will find just what you are looking for at an affordable price without compromising quality. Our clips are indeed no slip. Our headbands are custom sized to any age, and our "one size fits most" has room to grow. Each clip and band is handmade with the utmost care in Seattle, Washington. Moogies are also most definitely fashionable- they’ve been seen on the likes of Suri Cruise, Violet Affleck, Jessica Alba’s daughter Honor Marie, at the wedding of The Bachelor’s Jason & Molly Mesnick and then on their own baby girl, Riley. As always, wishing you laughter, fun, ribbons, and bows.
Yours Truly, Anna-Aliza
