Of all the things that Big Sister E can be counted on to remind me, one of the most common is to be sure that she has a hair clip for her hair. And not just any hair clip, it needs to be a matching hair clip. I love watching her stand and contemplate her collection and then select one, hold it against her shirt and consider just how well they go together.
Needless to say, when a beautifully wrapped package arrived from Princess Couture Designs and she opened it to find an assortment of hair clips that were not only colorful and bright but unique and fun... she could only open her eyes wide, turn to me and say, "Oooooh, Mommy. Look!"
Inspired by the birth of her adorable daughter, Michellene's passion for hair accessories easily combined with her skills and talent and Princess Couture Designs was created. From small and simple clips to large and elaborate bows to the new addition of headbands, Princess Couture Designs has an item to make your little princess completely fashionable and stylish for every occasion.
And if you don't see exactly what you are looking for or if you have a cute dress that is screaming for something extra special, Michellene will create a customized accessory just for you (check out the adorable Blue Bird Blossoms clip at right that was made to match the Children's Place dress laid behind it or the sweet Monogrammed Felt Clippie at left that is made just for your child).
I love the variety of styles and the creativity found at Princess Couture Designs - these aren't just the same clippies found elsewhere. Michellene's use of a variety of materials, from the fabrics to the ribbons to the jewels to the beads, adds an extra touch of beauty and flair to all of her creations.
Each clip that we received is not only skillfully handcrafted but finished just right with great attention to detail. The clips - your choice of alligator or snap clips - are lined well (including the no-slip grip that my girls' hair definitely needs) and all additions are securely attached.
Even though I wouldn't purposely leave Little Sister B alone with one of these clips (or ANY clip, for that matter), I'm not concerned that the sparkly gem on the clip at right or the darling beads on the Robins Egg clip at left would come loose due to her or Big Sister E pulling on them. These clips are high quality from top to bottom and will definitely last us for years to come.
If adorable hair accessories aren't enough, Princess Couture Designs also offers the cutest children's bracelets or binkie clips in any bead or Swarovski crystal combination that you choose. What a cute idea for a gift, special occasion or to add bling to pictures!
Big Sister E still treats the hair clips we received from Princess Couture Designs with awe and amazement and it's hard to blame her. Michellene creates unique, beautiful accessories that are as individual as the little princess in your life. Plus, ordering is easy after you've browsed her blog and made your selections. Simply send an email and your custom pieces will be underway, no hassle or complications. As well, thanks to Michellene's generosity, the little girl in one person's life will soon be stylish and fashionable, because...
