Moms Need a Break Too

Working at a children’s formal wear shop has given me time to observe people during their busiest times. It doesn’t matter if they’re trying to find a flower girl dress for their upcoming wedding or a suit for a special church service, the majority of the moms (and some dads) who come in to our store are in somewhat of a hurry to check one more thing off their “to-do” lists. I’m a mom, so I can relate…we’re busy and running errands with our kids is generally the last thing we want to do after we get off work.



I mean, there’s a ton of other things that have to get done before the day is over too. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take some time off just for us too. Have you ever made it a point to give yourself a break and time to do something you really want to do…by yourself? I didn’t used to because I felt like there was just too much to do and it would all pile up on me if I didn’t keep up with it. But, I started to notice how cranky and irritable I was all the time. If something little was added to my agenda, I would feel overwhelmed and stress out about it.

That’s when I had a friend tell me she thought I needed to take a break for myself. This was something she did quite regularly. Her theory is that there will always be things to do, but when we take time for ourselves, the benefits outweigh the negatives (like not getting anything done at home during that time). I decided to give it a try and what I found was that even though I still had things to do when I got …

Dear Valued Customer, Planning your (or your daughter’s or friend’s) wedding should be a time of fun and celebration. However, it can quickly become a stressful time for you, as well as, those involved in your wedding. While your bridal party will excitedly accept your request to be in your wedding, it’s important that you understand that being in a wedding isn’t free, and the costs of the dress, hair, makeup, shoes, etc. do add up. Therefore, it’s important that you give your attendants a small gift at (or before) the wedding letting them know how much you appreciate the sacrifices they’re making to be in your wedding. This is something that should also be done for the flower girls also. Choosing a gift for a young flower girl can be difficult because they are so young. Therefore, below are a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift for your special flower girl. Accessories – All little girls love accessories, just like adult women. So, if you are looking for a special way to say “thank you” to your flower girl, consider having a personalized piece of jewelry made for her. For instance, a charm bracelet that contains a charm symbolizing your wedding or a bracelet with a personalized inscription on it are great ideas. Personalized Piece of Clothing or Handbag – To make your flower girl feel extra special, consider giving her a personalized piece of clothing or a handbag. For example, you can have a special shirt made stating, “V.I.P Pass: I’m the Flower Girl,” or something similar” so everyone knows she is a very important person at your wedding. Some flower girls love personalized totes, or handbags, which are also easy to personalize. Gift Card – Depending on the age of your flower girl, you…

Winter Accessories for Boys

Just like girls, boys look forward to winter because it not only means that they get to go out and have fun in the snow, but because they also get some new clothes. One mistake many parents make is thinking that little boys aren’t as conscious about their clothing as girls are. While boys may not display their feelings about their clothes as abundantly as girls do, this does not mean that they don’t care. So, when you take your little man shopping for more winter clothing, consider allowing him to pick out a few of the winter accessories for boys listed below.

Hats – Winter hats are not just to keep the ears and head warm, they are powerful accessories for boys and the outfits they wear. There are many different colors and styles of hats available for boys to choose from. For instance, your little man might prefer a cozy stocking hat representing his favorite football team or he may prefer a dressier hat that can be worn in a variety of places…or maybe he wants one of each. Hats allow a boy to diversify his outfits to make them more representative of him.   Boots – Just like girls, boots are also fashion accessories for boys. No, they don’t come in as many styles as girls’ boots do, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t a winter accessory for boys. The purpose of winter boots for boys is generally to keep their feet dry and warm when out in the snow. Therefore, the boots you shop for will need to be hardy, outdoor boots – but these come in a variety of styles. So, let your little man pick out a pair that he likes as it will complete many of his winter outfits.   Ties – There…
