As a blogger, I get a lot of packages delivered. (And I do mean A LOT.) More often than not, these items are for the kids. They have come to realize that the mail, UPS, and FedEx showing up usually means they'll be getting something absolutely awesome. They also call the UPS guy, who has got to be old enough to be my father, Mommy's Boyfriend in Brown. Sheesh. Kids these days!
So when I received a gorgeous, handmade scarf from Ruffle Tots & Women's Boutique, my 4 year old, Sophie, was not too happy to learn that this was not for her at all....It was for Mommy. How DARE Mommy get something beautiful for herself, right? She actually went as far as taking my scarf and hiding it behind a huge, heavy buffet cabinet to try and keep me from taking it to my bedroom, where no kids are allowed. Thankfully, we found it while cleaning, and it was unharmed since it was out of the reach of puppies and kittens!
See, my Sophie is one smart cookie, so she knows when something is extra special. And of course, when super-special treasures arrive, she wants to keep them all to herself. (As stunning as this scarf is, I can't say I blame her!) Ruffle Tots & Women's Boutique is awesome, so if I were 4, I'd probably want to claim it as my own, too!
Oh wait...You haven't heard of this great Etsy shop before? Allow me to introduce you properly!
About Ruffle Tots Boutique :
First of all, I want to point out that this great shop is owned and run by a fellow blogger that I adore. Michelle over at Just Married Mom of 3 is a whole lot craftier than I am, which isn't hard to do, and she creates some absolutely wonderful ruffled scarves for women and littles alike!
These super-affordable scarves are handmade with love, and come in a ton of trendy color combinations. These are perfect for daily wear, or could even jazz up that slinky LBD hanging in the closet. A nice pop of color can do wonders for any outfit, and I love the idea of adding that color through fun and unique accessories!
Here are some of my personal favorites from Ruffle Tots & Women's Boutique:
Our Review of the Red/Black Women's Ruffle Scarf :
Two of my favorite colors are red and black, so of course when given the chance to review a scarf, I chose this winning color combination. My scarf arrived with lightning speed, and was very well-packaged.
The scarf is very well made, with no loose threads or inconsistencies to be found.
The thing that surprised me the most about this scarf, other than it's beauty, is the fact that it's actually very intricate in design and quite delicate. As you can see, this scarf is quite detailed, and even has some silver sparkles added in, which gives it so much character!
I hate to admit this, but since I am the least crafty person in the history of the universe, I have absolutely no clue what the technique used to make these scarves is. Is it crocheting? Knitting? I really don't have a clue. All I do know is that it's beautiful, and oh so soft against the skin.
While I was hoping to pair this scarf with some killer heels, skinny jeans and a cute top for our next date night, for the time being, I'd rather make a 4 year old little girl happy. Yep. I surrendered my scarf to my Sophie, since I know she loves it so much. The fashionista in me is crying inside, but the Mommy in me is thrilled to see my little Diva smile. And of course, since she is now "allowed" to touch it, she won't have to go hiding it in odd, random places...You know...In case I want to borrow it sometime!
Overall, I absolutely love, love, LOVE Ruffle Tots & Women's Boutique. I am a huge fan of unique, handmade items, and always love supporting WAHM-run businesses. Oh, and I should mention...Fashion this stunning is surprisingly affordable, too! Right now, most Kids' scarves are just $5.00 and most Women's scarves are only $10.00! These would make awesome Easter surprises, and since they won't break the bank, you can order several in different color schemes to match any outfit or style! Check them out!
