Tea Collection – $100 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

During the holidays, I try to dress up my little Tom Boy in the cutest girly outfits.  (I actually dress her up throughout the year, and tend to go a bit overboard around Christmas).  With all the parties, stop ins and flash photography happening, I figure it’s best to have her in something nice at all times.  It can be a bit of a balancing act to get a beautiful outfit that is still play proof.  I received an adorable ensemble from Tea Collection that fits the bill.

Tea Collection carries dress up and dress down Children’s clothing for kids ages 0 – 12.  For review, I received an Autumn Leaves Yoke Dress and a pair of leggings.  This “dress” is more of a long shirt.  Much like the style of today, it reaches nearly at her knees, and the leggings look adorable on her too.  I was actually surprised on the colouring of the outfit.  It’s a little more eggplant than I expected – not that it’s a bad thing, I was just surprised.  Maybe I should get the colouring on my laptop checked out?

She’s been wearing this outfit to parties and other semi-formal outings.  With this outfit she is still  “all dressed up” without compromising on running, jumping, sliding and just being a super busy girl.  Because of the darker colour and strong pattern stains are not noticeable.  However, while eating white icing, it is apparent that she’s been dabbling into cake, the bright colour really shows on the eggplant – but washes up just fine.

The Tea Collection has so many girls clothing and boys clothing choices when it comes to dresses, tops, sweaters and pants.  There are many styles and many patterns.  Also most of the outfits are completely matching so it’s easy to put an entire ensemble together.

Tea Collection is currently having a sale on many items right now, so head on over and you can get some great deals just before the holidays.

Buy it: To purchase, visist Tea Collection online, or find store that sells Tea Collection.

Peatoes – $50 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

My Wee View

Now that winter is here, it means bundling up in warm clothing.  Despite being a bit of a rough kid, DD is always dressed up like a pretty little girl  (it’s very surprising to see a cute little girl in pigtails and a skirt take down a 4 year old boy).  Even in the winter, she’s got a beautiful red snow suit (complete with ruffles) and for really special events she has a fancy long Tumble N Dry Grey coat, from Holland.

This jacket from Peatoes, is perfect for those cold days when we are running around doing errands and for special occasions.  It’s made with 100% polyester and for a small coat, it’s surprisingly heavy.  The cuffs have elastic so mitts will stay in place, and there is also an elastic belt on the outside (just like the style for adult coats).  The coat is also very long, it cover’s DD’s legs keeping her warm all over. The coat does not have a hood, but does have a very large collar.

So, I really like the function of this coat from Peatoes, but I love the fashion.  This coat is just too cute.  It looks like a mini version of an adult coat.  I don’t let DD play outside in this coat, it is strictly for special outings!  I haven’t needed to wash it yet, but I suspect because of the outer layer, it would be very easy just to take a cloth and wipe up any messes.  Overall, this is an adorable jacket for the wintertime.  I got size 4 for DD, despite being  only 2 years old, she is a big girl and there is a bit of growing room.  This is what makes the elastic around the waist so practical.   It might be a little big for her now, but as you can see in the pic (How do you like her angry model look?!?) the jacket fits her well.

Peatoes is an online store that carries all kinds of goodies for little ones, clothing, toys, mealtime, bath time, home decor and accessories.  This is a great place to get a few very important Christmas gifts off your check list.

Stitcheroo – $25 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

With a name like DD, it’s nearly impossible to find personalized things right off the shelf (except in Quebec, where DD seems to be a very popular name).  For my daughter’s second birthday, I wanted a personalized birthday and name tee, and Stitcheroo seemed like the place to get it.

On top of getting my daughter’s first name and age on a white tee, I was also able to get the princess theme from her birthday carried on to her shirt too.  People notice fine details, and this is one thing that got noticed.  People were first amazed that she had a personalized birthday tee, and then saw that it had princess crowns on it, just like the rest of the party.  I felt pretty good about it too!

On top of being adorable, the shirt is very high quality as well.  Before my daughter’s party, we used this shirt for her invitations.  I sat her on the stairs and took a bunch of pictures so we could hopefully use one that would be perfect for her invites.  The shirt looked so cute, that we left it on all day – big mistake.  We ended up eating spaghetti, or something else with red staining power that evening, and my daughter’s very special birthday shirt looked like it was in the middle of a war zone.  To say I was upset at my husband is an understatement (because we all know that things like this is my husbands fault –  I must have been shopping or something that evening).  I thought for sure, without a doubt, the shirt would never be worn again.

We washed the shirt, and sure enough, there were still some orange stains on it.  I showed it to my Mom and she took it straight back to the washer – did her “Mom” thing, and when it came out of the dryer, I was amazed to see that the shirt was wearable again and stain free.  Aren’t Mom’s great?  They can really fix everything!

I then ensured that the beautiful Stitcheroo birthday shirt was not worn again until the day of the party.

This was the perfect shirt for DD’s second birthday.

Stitcheroo has over 12 pages on her Etsy store of great party clothing including, personalized shirts,onesies and tutus so there is sure to be something for everyone (even the boys).  There are many popular themes for the personalized birthday tees, such as lady bugs, baseball and monkeys – and you can pick the colours!

Chadwicks – $50 Gift Certificate – CLOSED

Now that Fall and Winter are on the way, it means putting away those tank tops and taking out the long sleeve shirts and cardigans.  There are a few good things about fall, Thanksgiving and since it’s a new season the other thing that’s great about fall is shopping for new clothes (that’s also a benefit to winter too).

Chadwicks has recently added their new fall/winter line and I had the opportunity to review their products.  I choose the new Pointelle Twin Set.  I actually had the opportunity to choose the set before it hit the market, and was hoping for a pink set, but when it came it was ivory.  I didn’t even get a chance to open up the package before my Mother was ooohhhing and aaaahhhhing over this cute little set.  I had full intention of taking this shirt and making it mine (it’s so adorable with the matching knit draped front cardigan).  But when I saw my Mother’s eyes light up, I knew I had let her try it.

I ordered a size large (once again because of my Dolly Parton assets), and although it was meant for me, it actually fits my Mom perfectly and she is a few sizes larger than I am.  So, in theory even if my mother didn’t steal borrow this top from me, it would have been too large anyways.  So, for those of you with my problem, don’t be afraid to order for the size of your waist and not your chest.

The twin set looks really nice on my Mom.  The cardigan and tank are connected into one piece and match perfectly.  This matching set also has the latest and greatest style with the draped front cardigan.  When I first saw this style I wasn’t sure how much I liked it, but I still choose it as the review item anyway (cause I knew they were in style).  When I see it on my Mom (she is always so fashionable), it looks fantastic.

Chadwicks has great clothing for work, whether it’s business or business casual.  I work in a professional environment and the products from Chadwicks are all items that I could see myself in while working in the office (even as a young professional).

Noko – Dress (~$86) – CLOSED

My family and I recently went to the local zoo, it’s nothing fantastic, but for a girl who is not quite 2, it was really impressive.  I always hum and haw about what to dress my daughter in when we go to special outings like this, I like her to look her best, but also want her to be able to have fun.  The day we went to the zoo it was nearly 30 degrees Celsius, so I knew I had to put her in something that would be nice and cool.  I recently received a Japanese inspired dress for review from Noko Baby, and decided that this was a great opportunity to test out this little number.

The dress that I received is called Futaba berry.  It’s a berry pink dress with pink and orange patterned deep v-neck and does not have any sleeves – perfect for those nice warm days, or with a cardigan.  The dress is made with 100% light cotton and is lined so it is not see through.  The dress also comes with a matching pair of orange bloomers.  I thought the pink and orange would be an odd colour combo, but it looks amazing on my daughter.  There are also some very feminine buttons in the back – they are a little finicky to do up, but once the dress is on the buttons in the back look very posh.

What I was most impressed about this  Noko Baby dress is that after going to the zoo we my daughter played at the park for about an hour.  She was quite dirty by the time the trip was over, but the dress surprisingly took to the dirt quite well.  I just dusted her off and she was ready to go, and looked brand new again.  It didn’t even look like I needed to throw the dress in the wash – but I did.  I didn’t notice any shirking with the wash, and the sizing is generous.  I received a dress in 2T and it fits my rather larger 23 month old just fine with some growing room.

This dress received a lot of compliments on our day at the zoo, and any other day that my daughter has worn it.  It is so bright and fun and obvious that it comes from a specialty store/designer.   I love dressing my daughter up in nice and fancy things, but often worry about her getting them dirty or ruining them.  The dress that I received from Noko Baby passed the fancy, fun and durable test that my daughter puts it through every time she wears it.

Buy it: To purchase, visit Noko Baby – I’d love to have another girl to dress them in matching dresses :)

Honest Baby – Winners choice – CLOSED

Kids are brutally honest.  If you want to know the truth about anything, ask a kid.  They won’t say something just to appease you, they will always tell you the honest truth (so be ready for the answer).  When I came across the t-shirts at Honest Baby, I couldn’t help but laugh.  The shirts have quotes that are brutally honest and if baby’s could talk, these are thing things they would say.

I found it quite difficult to pick out the right Honest Baby shirt for my daughter (as so many would “fit” her personality), but I eventually picked “don’t expect much, I’m big for my age”.  For my regulars, you know that my daughter is tall for her age.  I don’t expect my daughter to be doing certain things at certain times, I just allow her to live  and learn at her own pace.  I do spend time teaching her things and am so happy when she masters developmental stages, but really I just let her be a kid.

However, I have noticed that people think that because my daughter looks more like a 2 1/2 – 3  year old, they expect her to be way more developed than she is.  A prime example of this is when she is at the library.  She towers  above all the other children her age and does want to play with the older children – on the steps.  A few months ago, steps were very dangerous for her and I had to be so close by at all times to ensure her safety.  The other parents which were letting their older children play on the steps looked at me like I was completely over protective (which I might be a little), but in this case my over protectiveness was valid.  I felt obligated to say things like “she’s only 18 months old”.  Which then the other parents would reply “Wow, she is tall for her age”.   So there you have it.

That was a bit of a rant, but it’s frustrating when I see other people judging my daughter because they expect more from her.  She’s still just a baby, let her be a baby, she’s just big for her age.  That is why I LOVE this sassy t-shirt that my daughter can wear and I don’t have to say anything to other parents, they can read it for themselves.

The shirt is ribbed which makes it quite fitted.  This is the first shirt my daughter has that is this tight.   My daughter received a 4T shirt (I told you she is big), but in her defense, they are cut a little small, so please make sure to order a size or 2 bigger anyway. (Sorry for the terrible picture, she’s been way to busy to get to settle down for a photo.)

When ordering your Honest Baby shirt, you can personalize them to match your favourite style.  I went for pink and brown.  You can also choose long sleeve or short.  There is also the option to have the saying slik screened right onto the shirt or you can get a quote bubble sewn on.  I went for the quote bubble – because even though my daughter can’t fully talk yet, I want her to have a voice.

kuki kids – Winners Choice – CLOSED

Kuki Kids is back again on My Wee View!  They are a regular sponsor.  Last time I featured their Fresh and Fabulous Dress, you can read the full review here.  Kuki Kids clothing are fun and unique, with bright, vibrant and funky patterns.  Their clothing sizing starts for newborns and goes up from there.  They specialize in modern day clothing for babies, toddlers and kids.

For review I received a few items from Kuki Kids.  The first is a pair of pajamas in the Taka Three all over print.  This orange, pink and red spotted pants and long sleeve shirt duo is nothing like any of my daughters other jammies.   These pajamas are very bright and have lots of charater (just like my daughter), so they seem to fit her outgoing personality perfectly.  The pj set is size 23 months (yes, 23), and I do find that it’s a little on the smaller side – this is because it’s Australian sizing vs USA.  I should have asked for 1 size up.  The legs are starting to look like flood pants on my 21 month old daughter. Despite being tall for her age, I think she would have gotten more use out the the jammies if she had the larger size.  The jammie set is still adorable, and really doesn’t have to be worn just at bedtime.  The leggings and shirt can be worn anytime, but I tend to like them as jammies.

The second item we received for review was another Kuki Kids dress, this time it was the Dada dress.  This dress has large swirls in red and yellow and was perfect for our vacation (you can read about our Cuban vacation here).  It is made with a heavy cotton canvas, but isn’t rough.  It’s a thick dress.   While wearing this dress down south, everyone seemed to notice that it’s not just a dress from your big box store.  It’s a fresh and cute dress that is special just for kids with lots of personality.  Any my little socialite fits that bill!  She was wearing this dress while a band was playing at one of the buffets.  She was up in front with all musicians dancing away.  She looked adorable and was having a ball being the center of attention.  This dress is also size 23 months, but seems to be larger than the pj’s.  I have no issues with this sizing of this dress.  It should fit her until her 2nd birthday this summer and probably a little longer as well.

I am in love with Kuki Kids!  The clothing line is just so fun and matches my daughters outgoing personality so well.  But, Kuki Kids isn’t just for the girls, there is also a fun clothing line for boys as well.  The colours are bright with stripes and spots.
