Featured Seller/Product Review: Belles and Bugs

*I received wall decor for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

I don't know about you, but when it comes to the holidays, I love to put Baby A in adorable outfits that coordinate with the theme. Since we have moved to another state, we won't be celebrating the holidays as we normally do. Usually we have a huge family gathering full of tons of great foods and lots of family (of course), so last year during Baby A's first holiday season, corduroy and sweater vests were a must! This year since it'll just be us, I wanted something simple and warm for him, something that would just go along with the theme of the holiday we were celebrating. I started my search and ended up "window shopping" at Belles and Bugs. I fell in love with a snowman onesie but I couldn't find anything for Thanksgiving! After sending her a message she told me that she could make just what I had in mind for Baby A for Thanksgiving. I couldn't wait to get Baby A's holiday outfits!

Mary, the owner of Belles and Bugs, had a love for beautiful clothing for her daughter, but not a love for their price tag. When her baby girl turned one, Mary treated herself to a sewing machine and taught herself how to sew. Soon, strangers were asking her where they could buy the adorable dresses her daughter was wearing. Next thing she new, Belles and Bugs was born. After two years of being open, Mary still abides by the same three principles she did as when she started- Quality, Affordable, and Machine Washable.

When Baby A's onesies arrived in the mail I was beyond excited. I couldn't wait to see how the snowman looked in person, and I was even more excited to check out my mystery Thanksgiving onesie! Okay, so it wasn't really a mystery, I asked for something specific and she was able to do it! I was so impressed with how great these onesies turned out, not only were they ridiculously adorable but they were great quality as well! The onesie itself was a Carter's brand onesie so I knew that the quality would be long lasting.

For Thanksgiving I requested a simple and cute turkey and that was exactly what I got! The colors are vibrant, each piece of the turkey is sewed along the edges which gives it a great look! The edges have been treated with fray check so when washed the edges won't fray apart. There are no special washing or drying instructions with these which I absolutely LOVE because there is no way I would separate it out. I'm horrible with that, if it can't be thrown into the wash normally, I wont buy it. When I washed the onesie, I washed it in warm water, with every single color in Baby A's laundry. Like I said, I don't do special loads of laundry! I also dried it on high and when I pulled it out of the dryer, it was perfectly fine! No shrinking (that I noticed), no frays, no stitches pulling. It was just as perfect coming out as it was when it went in! This turkey onesie is everything I hoped it would be! My only suggestion for Belles & Bugs for this particular onesie is that eyes would be a cute addition! Other than that, it's perfect! Even without eyes, I still cannot wait for Thanksgiving to put Baby A in this!

 How stinkin' cute is Baby A in his new Turkey Onesie?

For Christmas, Baby A will be sporting an adorable snowman onesie that could make even Frosty jealous with it's perfect polka dot carrot nose. I choose a snowman because I wanted to stray away from the traditional Christmas argyle or Santa Claus outfits. I wanted something that would be a little more winter appropriate and he could wear during December and January as well. I thought that a snowman would be perfect since a snowman doesn't just represent Christmas, it represents the winter season.

 "He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, for when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around, OH Frosty the Snowman...."

Baby A's snowman onesie was also washed in the same load as the turkey onesie and had no problems with shrinking or fraying. I am so excited for him to wear this! Now I just need to figure out what he is going to wear with it! 

Interested in purchasing the Turkey Onesie? How about the Snowman? Aside from onesies Belles and Bugs also carries the most beautiful little girl dresses!
