I have to admit, I have always wanted to have a daughter. There's just something about little girls that makes my heart melt. Perhaps it's the old adage about Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice, or maybe it's just because I have always dreamed about having a pretty little girl to dress up in adorable dresses, tutus, and more. Sure, boys are great. I have two of them, and I love them immensely. However, you can't put a little man's hair up in pigtails and put him in a frilly dress. Well, I suppose you could, but that would just be wrong on so many different levels!
So when I had my daughter, Sophia, 2 years ago, I couldn't have been more thrilled. Finally I would have a precious little princess to spoil! And spoiled she is, too! She's Mommy's Little Girl and Daddy's Little Princess, and she knows it. She has a larger than life personality and is quite the little diva. Luckily, my Sophie is the epitome of a "girly-girl" and she loves wearing dresses and other frilly, feminine clothing.
Sophia was born on New Year's Eve. Since she happens to have such a special birth date, I knew I had to find a very special dress for her to wear on her 2nd birthday. I wanted to find a dress that perfectly captured her personality, with deep, rich colors and feminine details. For this occasion, no ordinary dress would do. It had to be extra special. I spent quite a lot of time looking online, and I stumbled upon a great online shop, Cuddle Boutique.
Cuddle Boutique is a Mom-Owned business that was born when the owner, Kara Chase, was expecting her little princess, Olivia. She, like myself, couldn't wait to dress her little girl up in beautiful clothing and adorn her with girly accessories. She spent hours online looking for such products and realized that she has such passion for children's fashion, she should open her own boutique. As they say, the rest is history. Cuddle Boutique is Kara's labor of love, and each and every item offered is carefully hand-selected by Kara herself. Cuddle Boutique offers a wide variety of the top brands in children's fashion and accessories, such as Cupcakes and Pastries, Luna Luna, Joe's Jeans, just to name a few.
Cuddle Boutique sells only items of the highest quality, including organic children's clothing, and they're sure to have something to fit every style and taste. If you like traditional pastels, Cuddle Boutique has got them. If you like things a little on the wild side, with bold colors and prints, they've got you covered there, too! Not only does Cuddle Boutique have apparel for little girls, they also carry a wide variety of boys' clothing and accessories as well. (I don't know about you, but it seems harder to find cute boys' clothing!) Cuddle Boutique is literally a one-stop shop for all of your children's apparel needs. They also provide exceptional customer service, so you can shop with confidence and rest assured that your Cuddle Boutique experience will be a pleasant one.
Here are some of my personal favorites from Cuddle Boutique:
The awesome folks at Cuddle Boutique sent me the gorgeous Wrap Dress with Lace by Cupcakes and Pastries for my review. How adorable is that?! When it arrived, I knew that this would be Sophie's birthday dress. I was instantly amazed by the quality and attention to detail in this garment. The dress is made of 100% cotton sateen and is wonderfully soft to the touch. It features a stunning emerald print with deep shades of teal and purple, and is adorned with beautiful lace detail along the neckline and cuffs. The colors are vibrant and rich, making this the perfect dress for parties, Holidays, and family gatherings! Pair it with a cute pair of Mary Janes and you have the ideal special occasion ensemble!
The construction of this classically styled dress is immaculate, and there is great attention to detail. The stitching is expertly done, and I found no loose threads or crooked hems. The skirt portion of the dress is somewhat full and hangs beautifully while the sleeves and bodice are more fitted. This of course can be customized for the perfect fit, since it is a wrap-style dress. I love this feature, since it means my Sophie will get plenty of wear out of her Wrap Dress with Lace before she outgrows it.

Overall, I couldn't be more impressed by my Cuddle Boutique experience. Kara, the owner, is friendly and helpful, and she definitely has a wonderful flair for picking out the most adorable children's clothing. The selection at Cuddle Boutique is amazing, and I love the wide variety of clothing, gifts, and accessories they carry. I would definitely recommend Cuddle Boutique to any parents out there who want to give their boys and girls the best of the best. My daughter is the chicest tot on the block in her dress from Cuddle Boutique, and I have gotten many compliments from neighborhood moms about how stunning and unique it is. I will definitely be turning to Cuddle Boutique for my future apparel needs.
