Posh Mama Awards!

I just want to say I don't know how I got nominated (I think it was some kind of mistake) but I'll accept the award badge anyway! So thanks to those that chose me for the summer Posh Mama award! I love it!

BabyLegs-One Size Fits Most!

If you haven't already heard of BabyLegs, you may think these adorable leg warmers are just for babies...and you would be wrong! In fact, BabyLegs make great leggings for all ages as well as arm warmers for everyone in the family! I prefer to use BabyLegs over tights for my daughter. I got tired of her coming home every day with a new tear somewhere in her tights and even normal child leggings couldn't hold up to her wear and tear. But, because BabyLegs are sewn with an overlock stitch (in gold, so you know it's a true BabyLegs product) and are made more durable than most leggings, they've managed to last through multiple wearings and look as great as when we first used them! My son loves his BabyLegs too. With him crawling around and bumping himself on things, having his legs protected is a necessity as well as helping to prevent sunburn when we're outside. As for me, all too often I grab a pair of Aidan's BabyLegs for my arms when a sweater isn't appropriate i.e. those trips to the grocery store where the aisles are freezing and entering various stores. Which, Aidan appreciates them too in those cases. Being in Texas, summers don't usually warrant jeans and onesies are perfect for keeping him cool. As soon as we enter a store though, you can tell his little legs are cold and he's miserable. That's why I always keep at least one pair of BabyLegs in my diaper bag, they come in handy when you don't think you'll need them!
Summer everywhere is winding down and fall is about to set in. As it gets chilly outdoors, especially at night, make sure you have your BabyLegs with you everywhere you go! As a bonus, there are still Sew Golden BabyLegs in stock at the Dreamscapes Baby Boutique, and there are still prizes to be claimed, even the Grand Prize trip to Seattle! Grab a pair of BabyLegs now before they sell out for the season and see if you won!

Hoping and Dreaming You'll Be a Winner,

Bibzees...Because Even Cool Babies Spit Up!

If you haven't yet heard of Bibzees, it's because Dreamscapes Baby is one of the first boutiques to offer it! I'm always searching for the next big thing, and helping women-owned businesses is a priority. With Bibzees, not only was it an incredible product, but their owner Beth Powell, is one amazing lady!

A friend of mine bought the Drama Queen shirt by Uncommonly Cute but complained that the design was covered up by the unsightly bib she had to use while her daughter was teething. I'm sure many moms have wondered why they buy adorable clothing that is just going to be covered up by Little Brother and Disney bibs. Beth Powell thought the same thing and realized there had to be a way to fix the problem...and she did! Bibzees is ingenious in that the bib is the actual fashion statement! The onesie is just the background to the hip bib design. Two bibs are included with each onesie so you can switch them out throughout the day.

My favorite is the Biker Chick/Rocker Chick Bibzee. The onesie is lavender and comes with a motorcycle bib and a guitar bib. Who says only boys can rock? The set is rolled neatly together and tied together with black ribbon. Then it's rolled into a black fabric type paper and sealed with a sticker. It's baby shower ready! No need to giftwrap!

I'm a true believer in this product. I've seen the quality and the detail that went into the bib designs and I love the idea behind it. We currently offer three designs to suit your tastes. Check them out now at the Dreamscapes Baby Boutique!

Appaman Fall 2008 is HERE!!!

One of the hottest brands in kids wear today is Appaman, made famous by Maddox Jolie Pitt after sporting a shirt with the Appaman logo on the back. I was first introduced to this brand after my son was born in January 2007. A client of my husband's knew someone who owned a very popular upscale baby boutique in our area and she bought us a couple of items for our new bundle. One was a Cruisin' long sleeve tee from Binky Couture, and the other was a vintage black onesie with flames on the Appaman! It was our favorite item in my son's closet and he wore it until he grew out of it. We wanted to find more of these types of items by this designer...and unfortunately, the boutique she bought it from was limited in pieces and we couldn't find what we wanted. I am so in love with boys clothing today. I remember when my nephew was born 12 years ago, all there was for him was traditional smocking or sports clothing or polos. That was about it. My sister complained that boys clothing was the same everywhere and boring and I agreed.

Now look at today! Because celebrities have made being a mom a glamorous and sought after title, everything child related has changed. No longer are fashionable moms having to dress their fashionable kids in the same old thing. With Appaman, both boys and girls can strut their stuff in style.

My favorite pieces are of course the Henley with Flames and the Marine Motorcycle. While I'm not always an Angelina Jolie fan, I can thank her for publicizing a brand I fell in love with. It seems like anything her kids wear turns into the next hot item. I would complain about that, but her fashion taste in children's clothing is impecable and I have to agree with her choices. I'm always on the lookout for the best in kids clothing. I mentioned that Aidan wore his onesie a LOT but I didn't mention that it's still in GREAT shape without fading. On top of looking great, the quality is undeniable. I can say with absolute certainty that this is one brand that I've put through the ringer and has come out with two thumbs up!

Appaman is such a hot item that quantities are limited, so take a look and grab it while it's hot!

Keep Dreaming,
