Brand Review:Wrare Doll

I was the mom-to-be that swore I would not dress my daughter like a human doll/prima-donna. It wasn’t my style, I hated the idea that ‘the pinker, the better’ is an actual rule of thumb for dressing infant/toddler girls.

I stuck to my guns for a long time–Makenzie wore blue, yellow, black, brown…she didn’t even own a skirt until she was almost 2. I was told, on multiple occasions, how cute my “son” was. I was, by no means, dressing my baby girl like a boy but the fact that I wasn’t following the socially accepted norm of gender specific apparel, clearly, confused people.

Anyways, I gave you that long, drawn out intro to explain the weight behind the fact that I am absolutely in love with the tutus found at Wrare Doll. They are extremely whimsical and girly and fun and so much of everything that I was completely against at first.


Now, I am completely obsessed with the tutu trend. This is compounded by the fact that Makenzie will soon be in dance class. I never thought I would be excited to be a dance mom. Don’t get me wrong, I hope that she turns to competitive, team sports like I did but I’m down for the ride either way. Anyways, who says you can’t wear tutus and play basketball? Not at the same time…but you get what I’m saying.

Wrare Doll is owned and operated by Annie Casale out of Florida and worth checking out.

 Still being true to my naturally tom-boyish ways, I bought my babe a black tutu and styled it a little edgy by tying her shirt up. I’m thinking this is the perfect compromise of my style and what Wrare Doll is all about.

Introducing…Crew & Lu

Crew & Lu is ran by the amazing momprenuer, Uyen (pronounced Win) Carlson. I have fallen in love with her designs and ridiculously cute kiddos. She is a mom of 2 and a small business owner who still packs and sends out every order with her own two hands, from sunny Arizona.

When I first discovered Crew & Lu, it was a brand that produced mainly leggings and leather moccasins. Over the past year or so, I have watched the brand continue to bloom into a brand that produced the beautiful items you will see below.

One very cool aspect of Crew & Lu is the monthly Lu{xe} boxes. (Isn’t it cute how she separates the ‘Lu’ in “Luxe”?!) Each monthly box holds extremely limited edition pieces that are sold exclusively in that particular box and are never restocked once sold out. If you are a fashionista mom, this is right up your alley! Your babe will be rocking some seriously exclusive pieces that are hand made with a very high-end appeal. Take a look at some fabulous examples of pieces made for the past few months’ Lu{xe} boxes.
