Valentine’s Day is almost here and LOVE is definitely in the air. When I think of Valentine’s Day, one of the first things that comes to mind is roses. I came across Crab Apple Kids’ website and they had this adorable Cupcake Cuties Bubble Dress (made by cachcach), with a large, pink satin rose–it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day! “It’s SO beautiful”, said my 3.5 year old as we took the dress out of the package. I agree. It was even ready-to-wear–no wrinkles right out of the package!
Ruffles are definitely in, and I love the diagonal style that cachcach has incorporated as the main design. The tulle ruffles are accented with clear sequins which add a bit of sparkle in the sunlight. I love that the contrasting dotted shoulder straps are wide and stay up during her active play, too. The dress washes easily—Cold water and hang to dry (note, the directions say delicate cycle, but I washed it on regular inside a mesh bag and it was fine). Sizing is oftentimes difficult for me, as Kieran is very tall for her age (at 3.5 years old she’s just over 43″ tall and weighs 39 pounds). The folks at Crab Apple Kids were very helpful in determining what size would be best, as I was unfamiliar with how the sizing ran for cachcach. Kieran is pictured in a Size 5.
The Cupcake Cuties Bubble Dress retails for $49, but is currently on sale for $34.99!
Crab Apple Kids is a fun site to peruse. They have a few other items that caught my eye as perfect for Valentine’s Day or Spring, like this Vintage Rose Tunic & Capri Set by Kate Mack ($54):
I also love sequins and lots of ruffles (takes me back to my show choir days in high school). I know my daughter would love to put on a Valentine’s show in this the Oooh! La, La! Couture Sequin Ruffled Dress ($70):
Not to leave the boys out, my little man would look adorable in this Little Maven, Red Carpet Printed Tie & Vest Tee ($16.99):
They’ve recently added a special section just for Valentine’s Day to their website, so you can get additional ideas there. And, if they have the size you’re looking for, you can get AMAZING deals in their clearance section, too!
