When I was a little girl, I used to evaluate the quality of dresses by how far out they would twirl when I would spin. Those which did not spin to my satisfaction were shunned, and rarely worn. I was the consummate girly-girl. Pink, frills, princesses, tiaras – I suppose this comes as no surprise to you, my sweet readers.
The other day little AG and I had a mini fashion show in her bedroom. It was not planned, nor was it necessarily enjoyable. She was unknowingly borrowing from her mommy’s bag of tricks – trying on every skirt in her closet until she found one that “twirled” enough. Telle mère, telle fille…
When Erika from Tutu Pour Mon Deux contacted me and offered Audrey Grace one of their fully-customizable tutu tanks to try out, I believe I responded with a “Yes! My 4 year old daughter would fah-reak out over these!”.
Fah-reak, obviously, is a technical term.
Anyway, as expected, she totally did. Check out my little ham:
For Audrey Grace I chose a brown tank with dark pink tutu material, a fun pink polka dot ribbon, and a crown on the front. The design process was insanely easy, and so much fun! The only hard part was choosing the perfect combination for my sweet girl’s personality! You can see a snapshot of the customization screen below:
This screen is exactly what it looked like before I hit “add to cart” and you can see the gorgeous end result that arrived about a week later in the mail (complete with wand, may I add!).
You simply choose your shirt style, color, tutu color, ribbon color, and patch on the front. I was thrilled at the high quality of the shirt and tutu, and the patch on the front is soft and fuzzy, definitely a well-made product.
Here is the best part about these adorable tutu shirts – they come with a story. This story is one of gratitude, for a doctor and hospital staff that saved a little girl’s life. Her name is Maeley, and she one of the daughters of the owner of Tutu Pour Mon Deux (which means Tutu For My Two – I assume referring to her two daughters!). Because of Maeley’s journey, and that of her family, one-third of proceeds from all of these Tutu shirts goes to Children’s Hospital Boston.
