Petit Couture {Review & Giveaway} Clothing for Fashionable Kids

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

I love picking out clothing for my children, I just can't help it. They're usually fun colors, cute prints, adorably small and, unfortunately, fairly similar-looking to what the other kids are wearing wherever we go. Whether my girls are dressed in items I purchased new or used, it's pretty likely that the same styles and brands will be the ones that are at the playground or library with us.

There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but when a company comes along that can help my daughters stand out from the crowd a little bit, it peaks my interest. And when I see their clothing in person and am beyond amazed at how gorgeous, well-made, and incredibly unique it is, then I'm in love.

Petit Couture was started by the people who know children's clothing the best: moms. Two neighbors and friends, Rebecca Kaykas-Wolff and Noree Milligan, came together in their passion to start a luxury infant and toddler clothing line and created a beautiful selection of distinct, modern basics that will enhance any child's wardrobe.

With each piece based around Petit Couture's signature (and adorable) owl, their tops, bottoms, layette and accessories are eye-catching and notably more stylish than what is found at the mall. This line of clothing isn't just manufactured in a distant factory, instead it is essentially handmade and each piece sees anywhere between five and seven people in its road to completion.

I'm not saying that there isn't care put into the clothing that department stores offers... but do you really think they work tirelessly to make sure each image or rhinestone is placed perfectly or that the amount of sparkle used is precisely what it should be? And I don't know about your kids, but Big Sister E isn't usually tripping over herself in excitement when she sees just any new shirt and pants...

Although I knew from pictures that the Toddler Crew Black top and the Toddler Karate Pant Black were going to impress us, I was completely unprepared to be as amazed as I was when I saw them in person. Made out of 100% premium cotton, both pieces were incredibly soft and extremely high quality... and I'm not exaggerating when I say that both Big Sister E and I were stunned for a few moments when we saw the owl.

So much more than just some sparkle on a shirt, the Petit Couture logo in silver is more like a piece of art in the way that it's hard to pull your eyes away from it. The glitter is not added on after the printing like most kids' clothing, leaving it flaking away as it is washed or worn, but actually printed on as part of the process.

Rather, the design feels glossy and smooth and the way it shines when it catches the light makes me consider trying to squeeze myself into this shirt every time Big Sister E happens to not be wearing it (or make a smarter decision and get the Womens Washed Burnout Raglan for myself).

The longer length in the body of the shirt and the slight flare in the cut of the pants allow them to fit Big Sister E comfortably but without giving her the look of wearing the usual ragged t-shirt and sweatpants that she enjoys. After countless washings or being yanked or pulled on, these have held up well and still look as good as new. Whether worn together or separately (the top looks perfect with jeans and I think she would live in the karate pants if I let her), Petit Couture has definitely brought a stylish side to Big Sister E's closet.

With options like their Washed Burnout Crew in four different fabric choices and three owl colors (how fun is the gold metallic?) or the Interlock One-Pieces or Baby Rib Bib for the coolest babies in town, Petit Couture's items project personality and character. Their signature grosgrain ribbon embellishment and rhinestones are just small details that are the finishing touches to complete this adorable clothing line.

Looking to do some shopping at Petit Couture for your child or as a stunning baby shower gift? One person will have the chance to do just that because, thanks to their generosity...

One lucky person will win a $25 gift certificate to Petit Couture!
