Oh, just a fun fact: The Crab Apple Kids family is in Illinois! We're DIE-HARD Chicago Bears fans here, as my husband is an Chicago-area native, so I am curious to see if they have any Bears gear come football season! I am always on the lookout for team spirit wear for my kids, and here in the DC market, we're not lucky enough to have an abundance of Chicago gear available to us.
Anyways, I love this shop, and have spent hours drooling over their amazing selection. They carry much coveted names like Mud Pie, Flapdoodles, HALO, Trumpette, Melissa & Doug, Lollipop Kids, and dozens more! Over 75 of the top brands in children's wear, to be exact! The owners of Crab Apple Kids are absolutely genius...It's as if they have read my mind, and taken everything I would want in kids clothing and condensed it all into one convenient place! Brilliant! Here are some of my absolute favorite pieces at Crab Apple Kids:
Their Giraffe Tutu Dress is no exception. This is a gorgeous, one piece dress that consists of a ribbed cotton, racer-back style tank with a full turquoise tulle tutu skirt attached to it. At the hem of the tutu, you will find a beautiful satin trim that is perfectly matched to the blue in the tutu!
I love the fun ice cream cone adorning the front of this amazing little dress. The "cone" portion is a fun, giraffe print, and the "ice cream scoops" are made of brightly colored chiffon, and make this outfit POP! There is even a cute little cherry on top to make this dress almost as sweet as your little princess.
This dress came beautifully packaged, complete with its own durable hanger and coordinating ribbon. I felt like it was Christmas when I opened the box! I actually removed the ribbon and used it in Sophie's hair when I initially put this cute little dress on her! It was the perfect touch!
The Giraffe Tutu Dress is not only super-adorable, it is also comfortable and does not restrict the child's movement at all. Toddlers love to run, jump and play, and some clothing can put a damper on these types of activity, making for an unhappy and fidgety child. With this, as well as other Mud Pie apparel, this is not the case at all. Mud Pie designs their clothing for active children, and their outfits are perfect to play in as well!
