$50 Giveaway from Zoe Clothing Co

STRIPED GREEN DRESS - Motherhood Maternity
FEATHER HEADBAND - Downtown LA Fashion District

"Mommy, would a princess wear this?"  This is the question I get from Princess Sparkles every morning while she gets dressed.  For 4 years Sparkles would wear anything I put on her, but that time is over and now she will only wear things that are "pretty" (i.e. pink, frilly, shiny or poofy).  Another mother recently said, "how cute that your daughter dressed in costume for the pumpkin patch" and I had to let her know it wasn't a costume.

Sparkles and Pigtails
in "princess" attire
I'm participating in "Fashion Challenge" from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki.  Today's challenge is midi or maxi.  This wasn't too hard considering almost all of my maternity dresses are midi (yay for the trend!!!).  I'm also linking up to Pleated Poppy's "What I Wore Wednesday" and Momma Go Round's "Real Momma Real Style."

Zoe Clothing Co has kindly offered to GIVEAWAY $50 to a lucky Spinning Threads reader to spend at their online store!  They are a fabulous Christian clothing company who makes some really amazing t-shirts, dresses, kids clothes, sweatshirts and more!

***For an extra entry "like" Spinning Threads on FACEBOOK (please leave this in a separate comment)

You have until Wednesday, November 2nd to enter.  Good luck! 

Here are some of my favorites from their store:

Black Dress - $30
Fruit of the Spirit - $22

Rain - $22
Green Flower - $25
If you want to buy something now they are giving 20% off all women's t-shirts and outerwear for joining their facebook page and/or email list!

Anyway, I'm super excited about this and so thankful to Zoe Clothing Co for their generous giveaway.  Seriously, check out their clothes.  They have something for everyone, even Princess Sparkles would approve!!!

My oldest son wears a costume every single day (cowboy, ninja, Air Force, etc.) and I get the same comments. LOL kids. I think it is great to let kids show their individuality and to let their confidence grow by supporting them wearing what they want to wear. I love your cute little belly poking out the midi dress. What a great color on you too!

D said...

Love your color combo and the feathers! What a pair of cuties.
Love their contrasting Pigtail's in a checked blazer!?

If I won the giveaway, I would look at that black and grey dress and also the shirt that says: "Slavery is Not Dead: End Human Trafficking". That's an issue I would love to eventually work against more directly someday...

I have been gone way too long your baby bump is getting bigger. You look absolutely wonderful. Go Claire!!
