There’s nothing cuter than little girls dressed up in tutus, flowery head bands and princess wands. Or little boys decked out in adult-looking fedoras and neck ties. And what makes them even cuter is when these accessories are handmade with love and care. That is why I jumped at the chance to review BellaCoco Designs from right here in London.
ABOUT BELLACOCO DESIGNS
They say it’s all in the name and this trendy baby accessory store didn’t get its name by accident; loosely translated Bella Coco means beautiful pumpkin which is the pet name Mary-Ann Fougere coined for her twin daughters.
Mary-Ann found herself at a loss when searching for cute barrettes for her daughter’s Christmas photos. The accessories she did find didn’t fit the image she was looking for. She wanted to adorn her girls in something a little less baby-like and a little more chic; something that even Mary-Ann might wear herself.
In the end, she couldn’t find what she was looking for so she decided to make them herself and BellaCoco Designs was born!
LET’S GO SHOPPING
From tailor-made tutus created with North American, soft, luxurious tulle to Kanzashi Flowers (a Japanese origami style) to lead-free hair clips, there are a variety of trendy accessories for young girls at BellaCoco Designs.
And we can’t forget about the boys; BellaCoco Designs also carries neckties, suspenders and newsboy/fedora hats for the little guy in your life.
When I told Little S that she was able to sit down and view pictures of colourful tutus and pick one out of her very own she was thrilled! Her choice was not an easy one given that there are 12 styles to choose from (and you can order a custom design but she didn’t know that). She finally chose The “Mia” which came as no surprise knowing her love of all things purple and fuchsia.
The product exceeded our expectations! Little S sure feels like a princess in this fun outfit. It is clear by examining Mary-Ann’s work that she takes pride in her creations and prioritizes quality.
