Accessorizing With Huggabeans


I never really think of my little Princess as a fashion plate. People always compliment the way I dress her, and ask where I get her clothes. Every now and again one of her teachers would say, "A parent wanted to know where you bought this." I respond- "It was a gift." I have sweet family members who enjoy buying her cute stuff.  But most times, I buy things online.  I also never buy anything unless I have a coupon and/or it's on sale.

You'd be surprised at the stuff you can come up with by searching the web. For instance, I've always been a fan of crochet hats. Princess's hair is filling out now, but I used to be anal about covering up her almost bald head to prevent her from getting sick.  I'm no medical expert but I've  heard that you can be prone to illness, if your extremities are exposed to chilly weather.  So, I googled 'crochet hats,' found a company, and purchased this beanie.  


Princess can no longer fit into the hat pictured above, and I've been on the hunt for more like it.  Then I hear about Huggabeans, an online shop selling homemade and vintage items. I also visit their facebook page.  I've not only fallen in love with the cute little beanies, I've fallen in love with the cost.  Prices start at $4.50.  You can't beat that!   Now that spring is here I can't exactly have her rockin' winter hats, especially when the weather is so mild.  These crochet hats from Huggabeans are a perfect addition to Princess's budding Spring wardrobe.



These beanies blow her first set out of the water.  The old ones are plain in comparison.  I remember having the option of adding a removable clip which cost more moola! Plus, Princess has a style of removing them (yeah, she can take them apart). I like the sewn in crochet flower on Huggabeans'. I don't have to worry about her dismantling them.  

I don't necessarily go out of my way to make Princess lives up to her fashion plate reputation.  But, I will go above and beyond to make sure the quality is great and the price is right.

Know any great site that sells affordable kid stuff?

Oh my she is adorable in her little cap - please share how you get her to keep it on! Nia hates anything touching her head - winter hat, headband, hello kitty sun hat, my hands etc. SO frustrating.

No, thank you! Princess loves them.

She has her moments, but for the most part she keeps them on. She's been wearing hats ever since she was a newborn because she had no hair, and I wanted to protect that sensitive area on the top of her head (fontanels). If she's having one of those rare days of not wanting to put them on, I tell her "just keep the hat on until we get to school." She usually listens.

The things I can't get her to keep on her head now are bows and headbands. She used to keep them on, but now I can't get her to wear them for more that 15 minutes.lol

Thanks HB! That was her Easter outfit! The hat so happens to match perfectly with the dress. She loved it!
