TwirlyGirl: dresses as unique as your little girl

This post was inspired by TwirlyGirl baby girl dresses, who supplied us with a lovely dress to feature. Visit to check out their entire collection of fun and funky fashion for girls.


In one short week, my baby girl will be 11 months old. While a small part of me wants to sit in the corner and weep, a bigger part is having a blast watching her little personality unfold. We had an unusually sunny day last week, and as I watched her – decked out in her groovy dress, sporting a brand new shiner and trying to break out the front door to get to the sunshine – I caught a glimpse of the toddler my baby is turning into.


…and I love it. Black eye and all.

Because as wonderful as it is when babies perch on your shoulder, cupped in the palm of your hand, rooting and purring and smelling like heaven on Earth, those days are so fleeting. To hold on too tight is like trying to catch vapor as it disappears. All you can do is love the moment and try to breathe it in as much as you can. Then, sit back and watch them go!


And “go” really is the word of the day around here right now. Our Little Miss took her first steps on Christmas Eve. Much to her delight, she’s learned to click her tongue (constantly) and belly laughs are coming faster and more frequently for no reason at all.  It’s just a magical time of happiness and light. That’s why her new dress from TwirlyGirl fits her personality so well. It’s flowy and free, a little mismatchy (but only in the very best way), and she lights up the moment she puts it on. Even at less than a year old, she knows fun colors and prints when she sees them!

As the one who does the laundry in our house, I’m glad it washes so easily and doesn’t wrinkle because it’s becoming one of our favorite everyday play dresses. Once she gets the twirl down, I have a feeling she’ll never take it off!


TwirlyGirl is a mom-owned company, and all of their dresses for girls are made by hand in Los Angeles. Those are great perks, but what I like even more is the company’s philosophy about little girls’ fashion. They promote color and confidence and fun without encouraging our little ladies to grow up too quickly. The cuts are age-appropriate and encourage twirling (as opposed to, say, twerking, like some of the stuff I’ve seen on the racks lately.)

Plus, they’re reversible! Buy one dress, and you’re really getting two (along with a pair of bloomers)! Can you believe this is the reverse of the dress shown above?


The beauty also lies in the details, like this sweet little tie in the back:


These baby girl dresses scream unique, and that’s exactly what I want for my one-of-a-kind little firecracker. But don’t we all?
