Girls Crochet Headbands review & giveaway!

I've always been a sucker for cute accessories. One of my first retail jobs was at a popular, teen-filled accessory store at the mall, where most of my paycheck went right back into. It's no surprise that my love of accessories has been passed onto Em. She has an obscene amount of headbands and barrettes, but that didn't stop me from jumping at the chance to review some adorable accessories and an outfit from Girls Crochet Headbands.

Things have been a bit hectic, as one would imagine, relocating back to Los Angeles, prepping for the baby and finding Em a new preschool (success on all of the above), but I finally managed to wrangle Em to model some of the site's items we received. Our little diva thought it was too bright out, hence the sunglasses. You should see her rider -- man, this kid is demanding! Heh. 

headbands

I love this little white headband, which you can attach any barrette to. Em is pretty self-sufficient with her headbands, but sometimes she struggles to keep her barrettes in place. This is the perfect solution, and I'm excited to get more use out of her dozens of clips. All the clips featured in this post are from GCH, by the way, like this cream flower, this pink flower, the red version of this Hello Kitty clip, and this red flower. And some of them are attached to these sweet elastic headbands above. 

hats

She's not a big fan of hats, typically, but she was happy to sport this pink kufi hat for me. 

Dance party!

A girl can never have too many tutus, am I right? She fell head over heels in love with the two tutus we received. She's made them a requisite part of our nightly dance parties.

A couple months ago I found some sweet lace rompers online for Em's upcoming baby sister, but they weren't available in Em's sizes. I was STOKED to see that GCH had them not only in Em's size, but for a smokin' deal. Here she's sporting the watermelon one, along with some heart leg warmers.

It's a shame our kid has no personality, huh?
