Today I decided to let you all know about a great deal on denim ruffles I found! In case you haven't discovered denim ruffles on Etsy yet, they are the best way to take your cute shirts and tanks to the next level! Pair a tank top with regular jeans and well, you're just regular! Pair a tank top with denim ruffles and suddenly you have a show stopping "boutique" outfit :-) Ruffles can get pricey, but I found an Etsy shop selling these denim capris for $14 ---yes, $14! You can get full length pants for only $16...and they are surprisingly nice quality for the price. A little thin for denim, but I kind of like that for summer. Check out the Etsy shop Embellish Kids !
And check out my girls modeling these adorable ruffles...Raya was really into her fashion show this week hehe. Such a pretty girl if I do say so myself!
|Check out that "sass"! :-)|
Now the top is my first ever Matilda Jane (swoon). In case you are unfamiliar with children's boutique brands Matilda Jane is extremely popular and shall I say insanely pricey! I have never owned any before and never planned to due to the price (and the fact that I don't really understand the ordering process...you have to order from trunk keepers and it's like a secret society lol).
I occassionally would check ebay to see if anyone posted a crazy cheap piece as a buy it now, and maybe I could snatch it up before anyone else noticed hehe. Well low and behold, awhile back I stumbled upon this top and was able to get it for the same price as some Gymboree--wahoo! I think it's the most flattering top Raya's ever worn. I plan to take her 4 year pictures in this outfit in May, once the weather warms up.
So in addition to my plug for the denim ruffles I guess I'd suggest periodically checking ebay if you'd like to get a reasonable deal on your own Matilda Jane! The good thing about Matilda Jane too is that resale is generally very good.
I was feeling very "vintage" on these last two edits :-)
...and not to be left out, Brielle of course got matching ruffles! Hers are paired with a $1 Gymboree tank that I got at consignment though :-P (And she insisted on picking that headband ...just go with it)
