Sugar & Stripes Giveaway

.
I've always found accessories to be a fun and cute way to express oneself. As a child my mom would put these giant colorful bows in my hair and I'd try my best to take them out because even then I knew that less was more.

This is why I'm such a big fan of fellow-blogger Stephanie's new Esty store...


Sugar & Stripes has the most adorable and trendy handmade hair clips and bows without being ginormous in size. If I had a daughter I'd totally buy them and doll her up. Stephanie designs all of her hair clips herself and has attributed her creativity and inspiration to her daughter.
"I started making the bows for my daughter Jayde who was 4 at the time because I couldn't find any bows I liked for her that we well made and would stay in her hair- not to mention in the styles I wanted. After months of looking I gave up and started making my own. After much trial and error I came up with a style I liked as well as a durable style. I found out that these bad boys could even with stand washing AND drying them! So as long as she could keep up with them they were virtually unbreakable for her."

Stephanie has been designing these delightful hair accessories since 2007, where she operated and sold her items under another name. Due to having to relocate she closed up shop and opened up her new shop, Sugar & Stripes in February 2011. I have to admit, for only being open the last few months her hair bows are flying off the Etsy shelf's.

I absolutely adore all of her colorful and eye appealing bows but those girly skull bows are definitely my favorite...so cute! All of Sugar & Stripes' bows are attached to alligator clips and are created in a smoke-free studio. Every design can be customized to your liking and custom designs are also available. There are numerous items being added daily to the stock at Sugar & Stripes so it'd be a good idea to check back every now and then.

You can also visit Sugar & Stripes on Facebook and Twitter for updates. I'd also like to mention that Sugar & Stripes is currently having a wonderful 'back to school' sale where Stephanie is offering a whopping 45% off of all orders by using the code: BACK2SCHOOL
