Dainty Cheeks Boutique Review & Giveaway



After giving birth to her sweet baby girl, Chrissy uncovered inspiration to create unique, one-of-a-kind little styles with personality and gumption.

Her shop, Dainty Cheeks is a mix of new and upcycled pieces.  Having studied fashion design in college, she found that her one-of-a-kind taste trickled down as she shopped for her daughter - everything looked the same.
The pieces Chrissy creates are fun and fresh - nothing like you'd find in any retail shop.  She wanted something for her daughter that went beyond the 'pepto' pink and powder blue! 

I've always had such admiration for those who are talented enough to create something totally upcycled and from scraps of something else.  It doesn't go by pattern  - it's strictly from imagination and your own personal creativity. 

Chrissy was so sweet to send Alexa this lovely blue owl sweater dress.  It's such a unique piece and definitley nothing like what she has in her closet currently.  She took a few long looks at it coming out of the package and then smiled with delight - she liked it.  Alexa marches to the beat of her own drum and is always willing to go over and beyond the norm of what her friends wear.  This adorable dress was right up her alley and totally something that would fit her style.



Not only is it soft and cozy, it's such a fun piece to layer and mix and match with a pair of leggings, jeans, legwarmers, tights...a long tee, all on it's own...ect.  It's just so versitile.  She can wear it so many different ways and always have a fresh new look. 



Chrissy also sent Lillian a boutique style head scarf. 


It's made from 100% cotton, it ties in the back and comes in various sizes (baby, toddler, girls and even MAMA's, too!!)



What a sweet look for a pretty little girl!  It's a great way to dress up any outfit or to wear casually!


Right now Chrissy is offering an amazing deal on her head scarves - buy any 2 designs for just $26.00!
She has such a wide variety and many many fun fabric prints to choose from - it will be hard to choose - you'll want them all!! :)

Owl Pillow Buddies
