I am so very excited to introduce this weeks Fancy Friday Feature and giveaway: Home and Gift Boutique!
Today, I’ll be reviewing the Maribou and Velvet Dress. The dress is available in sizes 6 months to 16 years, so this would be a great dress if you have a family of girls and would like their dresses to match for family photos. It is available in 5 different colors: Pink/Chocolate, White/Black, White/Red, Black/White, and Red/Black.
The dress my daughter is pictured wearing is the Pink/Chocolate style. Unfortunately, I'm not a great photographer so the skirt looks darker than it really is. When I took the dress out of its packaging I received oohs and ah’s not only from my daughter but my husband as well. Anytime my husband comments about a piece of clothing, I know it is a winner in the aesthetic department, lol. This dress is so soft on both the jersey top and velvet drop waist skirt. My favorite part though, do you have to ask? The maribout feather trim!! Isn’t that adorable? Zhana likes twirling her skirt around and watching the feathers. It really makes her feel like a little princess. The dress looks adorable with every step that she takes. This is the perfect dress for your little princess. While it is adorable, it is also made well. My little one is a chunky monkey and it is very difficult to find clothing that fits her right. While she just turned two a couple of months ago, she is as large as many 4/5 years olds both in height and weight. One thing I really liked about this dress is because of the drop waist she has room to enjoy herself but it fits well.
This dress is beautiful just the way it is but the Home and Gift Boutique website states that the top can be handpainted, rhinestoned, embroidered, or ect. Personally, I’m not so great at activities that dont have room for error and this dress is much to pretty to mess up. I think i will take it to someone who actually knows how to sew and have her name embroidered onto it. The dress is available on their website for $39.99. Below are pictures of the dress personalized with a name. Also, there is a picture of the red and black skirt style. I think the red and white style would be so beautiful at christmas time. Wouldn't it look great in a family Christmas photo?
I encourage you to visit their store as they have so many more items than clothing. They even have their own blog at http://homeandgiftboutique.blogspot.com/. I would like to introduce you to just some of their other items that have caught my eye:
Wall Art~They have over four pages of different wall art and they are all so very cute. I think my favorite is the Color Burst Hummingbird Horizontal Canvas Reproduction. Isn’t it cute?
Wall Plaques~The wall plaques come in several different styles. My favorite is the Growing Flowers Style. Diaper Bags~I know most of the readers have toddlers advancing to an age where they are no longer in diapers but this Blue Sock Monkey diaper bag is too cute to not mention. The set includes the Diaper Bag, Changing Pad, Wipe Case Tote and Burpie all done in the Blue Monkey Sock Print. This is my favorite of all other diaper bags I’ve seen.
Personalized Fattamano Baby Blanket: This blanket is made from 100% cotton shearling. It looks so soft.
Butterfly Kiss Wall Decal: "With a butterfly kiss and a ladybug hug, sleep tight little one, like a bug in a rug". This would be beautiful in a little girls room.
So, if you like what you saw (and I can't imagine you wouldn't) I have some wonderful news for you. A dress exactly like the one my daughter is featured being given away is going to one blog reader! The brown velvet/pink jersey top is my favorite of the different color choices and having seen and felt it up close I know you will be very pleased. The size is a 3T.

If you are a first time visitor to Superfunmama.blogspot.com know that while there are currently several product reviews on site, we are primarily a toddler learning blog. Fancy Friday is a fun way to let loose on the learning and enjoy looking at beautiful toddler clothing. I am a huge supporter of small businesses rather than huge retail chains. On Wednesday we feature a learning product/art product. The rest of the days the posts focus on learning. I recently relocated and went without internet for over a week so I'm playing catch up on my posts. I love comments and connecting with other moms as interested in learning, having fun with their children, and ect.
