Back To School 2010 Giveaway: Sassy Seedling Children's Boutique ($50 GC) [CLOSED]

Our little girl is turning into quite the diva (and not always in a good way). When I had a daughter, I never pictured her to turn out quite as girly as our preschooler has turned out to be. Despite spending most of her time with her two brothers, she loves to look pretty and loves making a fashion statement even more. She adores her new flower beanie from Sassy Seedling because it makes quite the dramatic statement.

There was a time that I found this style of girl's hats to be a little to frilly. With ruffles being so popular in fashion now, I am starting to look at these large dramatic flowers differently.




I have to point out that the beanie was presented very nicely wrapped in colored tissue and grosgrain ribbon with a Sassy Seedling tag. You could easily send a Sassy Seedling item directly to someone as a gift with such special touches included.


My daughter is 3-1/2 years old, so I requested the Toddler/Child size beanie, which is recommended for children ages 2 to 6. I think when my daughter gets a little older, this hat would be perfect for her. The crocheted beanie fits fine, but the flower is slightly too large for her. It is the same size as her face, so I think a slightly smaller flower would have worked better for her. Luckily the flower is actually a hair clip, so I can temporarily replace the flower with a smaller one until my daughter grows a little bit.

I have to say that I love the color combination of this Fleur Beanie. Sassy Seedling offers this hat in 8 colors, but the combinations seem to vary. I am so in love with the Milk Chocolate/Violet for fall!


The selection at Sassy Seedling is not limited to girl's hats and hair accessories. This children's boutique also offers clothing for boys and girls, as well as designer baby gear. You can even start an online gift registry, which is a wonderful feature. To learn more about this online boutique, visit SassySeedling.com and Sassy Seedling on Facebook.
