I love my job. Melissa sent me a text a couple of weeks ago and asked me what size skirt I wore. I sent her my size and a few days later I got the CUTEST skirt in the mail! They even sent a cute shirt for Thing 5.
Art and Soul Boutique (Bercot Children's wear) has a great selection of all American made, boutique children's wear and women's clothing. The shirt that Thing 5 is wearing is a nice blend of poly, rayon, and linen. I washed it before she wore it and it held it's shape beautifully. The fabric is so soft. It is sure to be a favorite.
I am wearing the "Lots O Pink" skirt. It is 100% cotton with a cotton/lycra yoga band. The waist is such a cute pink and white polka dot print (too bad that after giving birth to 5 kids I don't tuck things in!)
The skirt is embellished with a "ditty pocket" (I got so many compliments on the pocket!) and handmade cluney lace from Poland along the bottom.
I wore it to three different events and got so...many compliments. It was so comfortable. I even wore it to sit in front of a cornfield! (doesn't everyone love to sit by the corn?)
I hate things touching my waist and I loved the yoga band. One problem I have with other skirts that have yoga bands is that they are usually really bulky. I have enough bulk in my tummy area without adding to it. This yoga waist is very thin and adds NO bulk. The skirt as a whole was very flattering (or so I was told) and I felt so cute wearing it. I washed it and it ironed really well and looks as good as new. I am a fan. I love everything about it and wouldn't change a thing. I am already planning my next order!
