This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Amanda. Congrats!
Shopping for my daughter is so. much. fun! There is no shortage of wearable cuteness for girls (what’s up with the lack of adorable wear for boys?). I have always been a girly girl, and if my daughter follows suit, she’ll be in bows, dresses, and Mary Janes!
My daughter is definitely too young to do much more than eat, sleep, coo, and giggle…but I have big plans for her! I hope to expose both of my children to the arts…music…dance…karate…theatre. I watch my friend’s 3 little girls at ballet class and *hope* my daughter will want to dance as she gets older (did you know I used to be a dancer?).
For now, we’re playing dress-up with Tutu Pour Mon Deux’s Tank Top Tutu. Look how adorable my daughter looks (it’s a bit big…but she’ll grow into it!):
Tutu Pour Mon Deux which is French for “Tutu For My Two,” was started by a mom with a passion for giving back to those who helped care for her daughter, born with a congenital heart defect. She combined her first daughter’s love for dress-up and dramatic play with her desire to make a difference and dreamt up Tutu Pour Mon Deux.
Erika’s tutu’s have been described as “happy heartfelt apparel with a special twist.” I love that! Her Tank Top and Long Sleeved Shirt Tutus can be customized in a variety of ways and are a unique twist on the conventional tutu. Here is a short description from the site:
A band of tulle and colorful ribbon is attached to the bottom of either a sleeveless or long sleeved shirt with a unique image ironed onto the bodice creating a one of a kind, little girl’s tutu shirt.
Designing your little girl’s special tutu is easy (and fun!). Simply select a style (tank top or long sleeved shirt), a color (there are 6), a size, a patch (I chose a cupcake), a tutu color, and an accent ribbon. I actually had a little guidance from Erika in picking the colors, ribbon, and tutu that would look best. I absolutely adore it! It’s made very well and looks adorable. Little girls love to dress up and these can be worn around the house or out and about. I like that the Tutus are affordable while retaining their uniqueness. The Tank Top Tutus retail for $34 and the Long Sleeved Tutus retail for $38.
From each tutu sold, Tutu Pour Mon Deux donates one-third of the proceeds to Children’s Hospital Boston.
