Thanks to Looking Glass Clothing Company for sponsoring this post. As always, opinions are my own.
Having been a boy mom for 5 years, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when our baby girl came along. It was months before I purchased an outfit for her, and I really didn’t stock up on a ton of clothes before she came along (we were given a lot, and had a good amount of gender-neutral hand-me-downs.) Over the past 10 months, however, I’ve figured out the fun of clothes shopping. Baby girl (and soon to be toddler girl) clothes are just. so. cute.
I’m not a fan of over the top, non-playing clothes. For both of my children, I’ve insisted their outfits need to be comfortable at whatever stage they were in. Kids run, jump, roll, walk and play hard – and their clothing needs to be able handle the activities. But I also want my kids clothes to look nice.
People local to Asheville, NC now have new options for girls clothes sizes 2 to 8! Looking Glass Clothing Company will have an in-store event on Saturday, February 25 from 12-3 at Monogram Asheville in the Asheville Outlets. If their name sounds familiar it’s because it was inspired by Looking Glass Falls. This Saturday, you’ll find special launch party prices as well as giveaways.
My daughter won’t fit their clothes until next spring, but I’m not against stocking up on clothes now. Some of their items are designed in a way that can grow with the girl, for example a dress could become a shirt (just add leggings.) And the leggings are adorable.
Given my recent addiction to headbands on my girl, I was over the top excited to see they have headbands on their website. Day. Made.
The collection is designed by two Asheville moms (who have two girls each), and sewn by a team of fabulous local sewers. The patterns are inspired by nature and Asheville (and if you’ve even visited this city for a few minutes, you’ll understand our love of outdoors.) Even better is their design philosophy. They set out to create clothes that are practical and pretty. This is totally my thing.
I also love that the clothing is locally made, one of the goals of the company. Each item is tagged with “loved” in hopes that every girl who wears the clothes will feel loved.
You can find the clothes in Asheville at Oodles and Maggie, and Monogram Asheville. You can also purchase items on their website. If you’re local, be sure to stop by Monogram Asheville (in the Asheville Outlets) this Saturday between 12 and 3pm!
