Shop Spotlight & Giveaway: Bellasbitsnbaubles

Unless you are a brand new reader you'll know about my love of girly dresses and accessories for Eleanor.  And while she has adorable clothes from bigger stores like Target or Kohls, I've been loving finding unique pieces on instagram.

When I came across this shop on instagram I was so excited!  Adorable dresses WITH matching headbands!  

Chelsea - the face behind Bellas Bits n Baubles just started making these adorable outfits and opened an etsy shop to share the girly love!

Hi my name is Chelsea, I'm a stay at home momma and obsessed with all things girly! My husband and I are blessed with a beautiful, spunky 4 year old little girl, who has a little sister on the way giving me another reason to happily indulge my obsession! Enjoying time spent with my family and making wonderful memories, keep me inspired and are everything to me! I also LOVE crafting, sewing, crocheting, and pretty much want to just create create create!!! All these things together are what created BellasBitsN'Baubles! When you see my shop, I hope you see all that inspires me; my family, my life, and my love for all things girly!!

Pretty sure she has the pregnancy glow.  I might be slightly jealous. 

 I was super excited when she agreed to a review and was in major anticipation once she let me know it had shipped.

Eleanor is wondering what is in the package also.

The paper is even cut with decorative scissors.

One step closer to opening it.

The packaging is amazing

She even sent me coordinating earrings which I love- but I also
 love the little mason jar it's attached to.


Matching headband

She likes it!

Yes mom!  I want that!

Rob wasn't around when I opened it, but when I showed him the pictures, I kept going "and look at this"  "and how cute is this?"  and he clearly knew how excited I was.  He agreed that the packaging was awesome. I realize not everyone might care about the packaging and just want what is inside - and I was excited about the outfit - but I love love love the attention and detail she put into making it look pretty.  First impression win!

This picture melts my heart.  My sweet adorable girl gazing up at her daddy!

I loved this dress and loved how precious she looked.  She wore it to church the day after getting it and got so many compliments and questions about where I got it.  I love that it is unique and no one else is going to have the same outfit as her. 

One of the tests I do to make sure something is well made is to give it to Eleanor and then try to take it back because if she wants it she will hold onto it death grip style.  Nothing budged on the headband.

I was kind of nervous to wash the dress because I didn't want to bow to come undone because I knew I won't be able to make it look so pretty.  I washed it on gentle with no issues; the dress is still beautiful.  Nothing frayed and I did manage to make the bow still look good. :)  I'm thinking she might be wearing this again on Saturday to Rob's birthday dinner with family (it might be his 30th-but she's going to steal the show!)

This dress is amazing, and I'm thinking ahead, but Eleanor might need a special 1st birthday dress for herself and I would love to be able to get her another one from BellasBitsNBaubles!


Chelsea will be sending one very lucky winner the outfit (dress and headband) below in a 6-12 month size!  Enter on the rafflecopter form.  Giveaway ends 11:59 pm 5/16/14.  Open to US.
