Pillowcase Princess

Do you know one of my favorite things about having a girl? It isn't pink...my girl looks best in greens and blues anyway. My favorite thing so far is little chubby legs sticking out of the CUTEST dresses EVER!

My addiction and fascination with pillowcase dresses will quite possibly be a problem for my girl in years to come. Now as with most everything else I want for Carli Grace I headed over to Etsy and shopped around for the perfect thing. What I came across was Hot Tots Boutique.


I ordered a couple of the most darling dresses at prices that are hard to beat. In fact, the prices were so low that I kind of expected to be unimpressed and need to search elsewhere to feed my addiction - what I got amazed me. Rebecca over at Hot Tots Boutique does amazing work. Her dresses are beautifully made, wash great and are super comfy for my Carli Grace on a hot summer day! On top of that her Sizzlin' Summer Sale makes everything an additional 15% off until July 9th!

Now you might say, but Rachel, summer is half over she'll barely get any use out of these dresses. You would be SO wrong. My girl will be sporting her dresses all year...first as summer dresses, fall and winter dresses with a long sleeve onesie underneath...maybe some leggings, and next summer, as a cute summer top with a pair of shorts. SO versatile!!!


So, as with everything else I love, I talked to Rebecca about hosting a giveaway on my blog so that you guys could have the opportunity to win one of her fabulous dresses (in size 6 mos. to 5T)!

All you have to do is post a new comment for EACH item that you do on the list. I will use Random Generator to choose the winner. If you put all your replies in one comment you only have one chance to win - make sense? So comment separately on each.


1. Check out Hot Tots Boutique and tell me what dress I should buy next for Carli Grace. I'll give you a bonus entry if you happen to mention one that I already own - besides the one she is wearing in these photos (cause I encourage good taste around here!).

2. Follow my blog publicly - that means add me to your google reader or click follow on the right hand side of my blog.

3. Go to Rebecca's site and tell me what you would want for your favorite princess...so many choices so little chubby leg time!

4. Blog or tweet or both about this raffle and link to it - 3 entries each!!!

5. Purchase any item from Hot Tots Boutique - 5 entries!!! Keep in mind that everything in her store is 15% off until July 9th!!!

6. Post about this raffle in your Facebook status.

The fine print - contest ends July 10, 2009 at 10:59 p.m. CST. We can only ship to addresses within the United States. The winner will be drawn via Random Generator and contacted. Please be sure to leave me a way to contact you if it is not available in your profile. Winner will have 72 hours to respond before I draw another winner.

My princess and I wish you good luck!!!!
