Holiday or Formal Outfits Made in USA

This photo was taken Easter 2010. How lovely are the boys’ knicker sets? They are made in California by Just Darling. The girls’ dresses are custom made by Teeny Bunny. When I first happened upon the dress the ribbon was originally light pink. Then I asked the designer to make it black to match the boys’ outfits and voila! That’s what I love about made-to-order!

Shopping online at Starlooks Boutique {4 Kids & Babes} is made easy because it’s secure and you don’t have to wait in any lines or fight the crowds. It’s finding the right coordinating outfits that may be tough. If you have more than a couple of kids, it can be downright awful – trying to maintain a balancing act of Mommy, I need this, I want this, I’m tired, I’m hungry, etc., etc.

Easter 2009 the boys also sported this Just Darling knicker’s outfit. The girls’ dresses were made by PeanutButter Princess. It looks like she may be on hiatus though – but who could blame her with three children?


If you’d like to support American-made and avoid the traffic and crowds, why not stop by Starlooks Boutique today – perhaps the perfect outfit or piece of jewelry is waiting for you?

Peri Ponchos

One of the things on my daughter’s birthday list wasn’t a poncho, but she had wanted one since last Christmas. So we surprised her and got this Merry Go Brown one (I asked her a couple of months ago which one she like the best out of all the designs). Now all her friends want one and the ponchos are perfect for fall!

Peri Ponchos are made in Oregon, U.S.A. Yep. If you haven’t noticed by now, most of our stuff is US made!

The Perfect Nautical Outfit

Take a look at the tags on your clothes. On you children’s clothes too – what will you find? You will find that most items are made outside of the US.

If you put your child in clothing that is made in the United States, you are not just supporting the designer, but also the factory workers. And that means helping our economy, does it not?

We have the cutest little number by Just Darling – and it’s proudly made in the USA…

The Easter outfits I chose for the kids

So this Easter is the very first Easter the kids will be decked out in all US made apparel, with the exception for the shoes, which are made in Vietnam.

I got a little finicky and had a difficult time choosing as there are such great designs out there – I also wanted to stay in an affordable price range!

Here is what I chose for the boys – Made in the USA, of course (we sell this here)!


And shoes are from Payless (hey, there’s not much of a selection here in Soldotna, Alaska). In fact, it was between Payless and Fred Meyer’s. Fred Meyer’s did not have chocolate brown dress shoes in their sizes…

My boys had a choice between Dexter Boat Shoe or Newberry or this Smart Fit Oxford. I told them to keep in mind comfort too. What a steal at 13.99, on sale! Next year we’ll have to shop a little earlier so I can have time to shop online and get them shoes from this great European shoe boutique,



And for the girls. I LOVE this dress, from Peanut Butter Princess Boutique. Bought it in March so we got their FREE shipping deal! $38.00 each:



We haven’t purchased the girl’s shoes yet. That is on the list for things to do for tomorrow. But if we could turn the clock back, I would totally get these dress boots made in Spain from Chic Chic Kids for the girls to go with their dress:


Or these dress shoes  also made in Spain by Chiquitin:


Will post Easter pics probably on Monday… Feel free to comment and share what you’ve gotten YOUR little ones!
