Girly and Gutsy Young Female Entrepreneurs in Fashion

Girls fashion is all over the board. I swore to The Chad I didn’t want a daughter because I was terrified of the world she would be raised. Obviously I ate those words, but today I am terrified nonetheless because of the amount of undue and unnecessary sexualization in our society that is aimed at young girls and young women. Fashion seems to be the biggest driver. However, I have found that even the best gems in fashion can emerge under all the pressure. Some girly, gutsy female entrepreneurs that create fun fashion without oversexualizing and or seeming too dull or lacking relevancy for young women.

Make Old Shoes New With Shwings

I don’t know about you Mom’s, but my kids tear through shoes like a rabid animal on raw meat. I have a tendency to buy a couple pairs of shows because I know how fast they burn through shoes and I have some backups just in case. But my shoe purchasing style has not always been favored amongst my kids. Their style and my style for them definitely differ, which means that sometimes we are left with some brand new shoes that go untouched and unworn. Until we spiced them up to look new, with Shwings.celebrity schwings Continue reading “Make Old Shoes New With Shwings”

Give Cold Weather the Boot with BEARPAW

Now that the days and nights are getting colder our fashion begins to turn to boots. My daughter has been embracing her own fashion and style and has spoken so animated and passionately about how she would love to have a pair of boots. She raids my closet often to tromp around the house in my heels and boots. This Christmas I only felt right that she have her own pair of boots. We are fans of fashion brands that make a statement in more ways that just style, ways that impact the greater good with a bold statement and I found BEARPAW.

bearpaw boots, bearpaw logoFounded in 2001, BEARPAW was created with the intention of utilizing sheepskin in the redefinition of casual footwear. Sheepskin is natures fabric that helps regulate body temperature to keep feet warmer in the colder weather and cooler in warmer weather. BEARPAW strives for sustainability with setting expectations in their offices for recycling with their employees, encouraging their suppliers to act in the same manner and commit to environmentally friendly packaging and practices.

My daughter simply lost her mind. The boots are easy to slip on and off yet have classic laces to keep them from falling off. They have sturdy outer soles, but have enough give and bend for my daughter to run around and have fun in without being restrictive.

The boots are not limited to just little girls. Ladies, get your fix by choosing from the various styles of boots, booties, knits, slippers and even wedges. Throw your husbands into the mix as well with boots, slippers, slip ons and hikers. BEARPAW is a one stop shop for all your footwear needs and styles for the whole family. Who said just ladies have to have boots.

My Baby Clothes Boutique

My kids are getting older, but they are still within that stage of little kids clothes, baby clothes, and toddler clothes. Especially my daughter, she is very petite, small, tiny, and thin. The girl eats like a horse but she is rather small and finding the right clothes for her can be rather impossible.

While seeking out the perfect gift for my daughter this year I was approached by My Baby Clothes Boutique and I shopped their site and found some really adorable items including tutu’s and baby headbands that are super cute for little girls. After perusing all the adorableness that My Baby Clothes Boutique has to offer I finally found an outfit, or two, for my daughter. She is dainty and very feminine, but also the type to put on an all pink dress with camouflage tennis shoes. During my shopping adventure I came across the Bonnie Jean Heart Rose Pant Set that screamed Sara!

Like sharing Valentine’s Day just a bit early for her, the satiny rosettes shaped into a heart soften the fleecy outfit perfect for this winter and into the spring. Coupled with a pair of leggings, any young girl is sure to love and strut in this out. I know my daughter was out posing in this one with her pouty face. The price is even nice for what the outfit is, and falls right into this family’s budget when looking for girls clothes.
