I know Kinder Kouture takes a pretty long summer vacation, but after working from September through May with very little time off, I enjoy taking what I like to call a “relaxation break”. Being a mom and an entrepreneur, I take it upon myself to spend as much time with the kids as I can during the summer. Can you blame me? Plus, my studio gets pretty hot on normal days, with all those machines, irons and lights. Can you guess how hot it gets when the temps reach 100? It is unbearable. As a matter of fact, most of my neighbors and friends know they will find me in the pool splashing with the kids during the afternoon hours until after dinner, when I head back into the studio to do some nighttime work again.
Other then vacation, pool fun, and enjoying my children’s smiles and giggles, I have been busy with another project. We may be moving in August. It is a huge project, which involves some demo work and renovation work. A real HGTV project. I know, I am so excited. I cannot believe it, so I won’t until I know it is really happening. Nothing is set in stone yet, so I don’t want to jinx it. I will update you once I know more.
Other then that, we are getting ready for SCHOOL. Yup, in less then four weeks the kids will be heading to school. Can you believe it? We have already shopped for school supplies, and shoes. Of course, I took my daughter shopping for clothes, but believe it or not we found NOthING! A few tops, but that was it. She actually said to me “Mom, you will have to make me something!” That is music to my ears. She is your typical pre-teen. She wants things from Justice. She actually requested shorts and dresses this year.
I realize that I have been concentrating on more baby items then dresses for the larger sizes. It is not always easy to offer dresses that every preteen- and teenager want. We get more requests for the smaller sizes. We decided to set up a section for the BIG GIRLS, and hopefully you will like some of our choices. As for our newest addition – the BLUEBERRY FLORAL DRESS – my daughter requested simple and sweet. She prefers no sashes, no ruffles, and only beautiful fabric.
The dress is a classic bodice made out of a japanese cotton floral print. Very expensive, but beautiful quality as you can see. The prints are unique and gorgeous. Very colorful, but impressive. I love them, and I tend to hoard these fabrics since they take almost a year to arrive after I order. This dress has a circle skirt, which gives the buyer a lot of twirl effect, without all that weight. The back has three buttons to close the dress, and a small flutter on the shoulder for just a bit of cuteness. We also shortened the dress by three inches to give it a little bit of modern flair.
