Sophie loves to play dress-up and loves anything sparkly, frilly, or pink. After all, she is a girly-girl and isn't afraid to show it. She adores tutus, pettiskirts, and of course, dresses. She'd wear them all the time if we let her! Sophie has quite a few fun outfits, but none seem to delight her as much as the Sequin Dress with Tulle & Rosettes from My Princess Academy by Almar.
Who is Almar? Almar specializes in designing, manufacturing and distributing Fashion Hair Accessories, Costume Jewelry, Cosmetics, Children's Toys and Novelty Items. Almar's product line offers something for every age group and will excite customers while offering the latest in fashion, basic and value merchandise.All of their products are well-made, creative, and super-affordable.
The folks at Almar also give back to the community through charitable giving. I don't know about you, but I love seeing companies help others. Since 1965, Almar has committed at least 10% of its annual profits to community giving. Almar's philanthropic initiatives are dedicated to improving people's lives throughout the world. The Jack H. Ashkenazie Foundation was created in 2001 and named after their founder. The foundation actively donates to schools, hospitals, homeless shelters, food pantries, toy drives and hundreds of other charitable organizations. In 2011, the campaign was expanded to include donating to every children's hospital in the United States.
These donations are part of this 45-year-old, family-owned company's ongoing commitment to give back, every day of every year. Their hope is that their generous contributions can help make a difference in people's lives and put smiles on people's faces. Whether it's giving to a sick child, helping a needy family or contributing to cure diseases, Almar is constantly giving. As a consumer and a parent, this is something I can feel good about!
Not only is Almar a very giving company, their merchandise is absolutely adorable. Their expert designers pay close attention to detail, so everything is made from high quality materials like tulle, sequins, and more. I spent quite some time browsing their site and I fell head over heels in love with so many of their designs. Here are a few of my top picks:
The dress is very well made and has a bit of stretch to it. This is great since Sophie should be able to fit into it for quite some time. The sequins are very securely attached to the bodice, and the rosettes are such a pretty, feminine detail. I also love the tulle. It's very graceful looking and is a lovely, delicate shade of lilac.
