So Cool for Back to School!

It's ironic, I know, since the school year hasn't let out just yet, but here is a preview of a few of the pieces that Fabulous Girl Clothing will be offering as  fashionable choices for school uniforms, still very age appropriate and modest.  
I've studied and studied the current dress code policy for the Beaufort County School District and these bottoms fall within their requirements with no problems.  I'm looking forward to partnering with some of the local schools very soon to do some fundraising with them!  So far, I've talked with Riverview Charter School (they're on board!), Coosa, and Lady's Island Elementary (waiting to hear back from them, although I think they are definitely interested).  ****Very important:  if you'd like for these pieces (& more) to be available for your daughter and raise $$$ for her school at the time, PLEASE let your PTO and principal know ASAP.  Sounds silly, but I have to get this underway this week or next for production purposes.  Hence the "ironic" earlier, but in order for me to get the pieces to you in time for back to school this needs to happen NOW :).  I'll tell you that I'm not lying or exaggerating one bit that my Isabella feels so much better and happier when she can wear cute and fun clothes to school.  I'll never forget her saying to me  last year when she was in Kindergarten, " Mom, you need to jazz this up a bit", referring to her uniform purchased at the department store.  Oh, and just a little fyi, I will keep my prices as reasonable as possible so these pieces can be available to all students.  We're even considering offering some "scholarship" pieces based on need.  What do you think of that idea? 
 
Above is a sneak peek of my newest tee.  How cute is it?  I love how it turned out.  I LOVE instilling confidence in girls!! These will be available in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, & 12.  These are not officially part of the school uniform pieces, but will be available to purchase at time of the fundraising event while supplies last.  Oh, and just so you know, these are really nice quality tees, not your run of the mill cheapy tees.  I think I'm allergic to those-lol.  I've never liked dressing my children in those tees that they get from playing soccer, etc.  Let me know what you think!
Here is a fun, little ruffled skirt, great for twirling!  Now all of us mommies know that twirling is important, right?  My girls love to twirl and I'm sure yours do too!  This "must have" piece is fun to wear and easy care for mom. 

Be on the look out for more pics and pieces and accessories. I'm hoping to add some layering pieces, like ruffled leggings, and trimmed out biker shorts, too.   I'll be posting more later.  Susan DeLoach (the totally FAB photographer that I'm so lucky to work with) is putting together a super cute postcard for the upcoming fundraising events.  ***If you think your school would be interested in partnering with Fabulous Girl Clothing to raise some funds for your school then please email me at Rachel@FabulousGirlBoutique.com!!

BIG, BIG, BIG news and lots of changes goin' on around here! All good stuff, though. Actually great stuff...FABULOUS stuff!

 
Clue: the new logo. What do you think? Do you love it or

LOVE it??? I LOVE it! Not only is it cute, but it reveals the biggest news of all: the new name of my business!!

 
So what do you think about that? I think it is more fitting as my little girls line of clothing has kind of taken center stage. I still love my aprons, yep! I'm still an apron girl, but dressing my little girls in adorable, fun, girly clothing is too irresistible . I love sharing my love of doing that with all of you. I find it to be such an honor to dress my little ladies! Do you? I think soooooOOOOO

You know I'll be doing some fun giveaways, Fabulous debuts, making announcements, venting, sharing, connecting, and growing in so many ways. Won't you please join me? Let's embrace our girlyhoods together!!

There's a party going on!

Yep, that's right...there IS a party going on!  Check out the link below for some really fabulous giveaways.  A fellow designer, by the name of Joyce, is hosting a giveaway in honor of celebrating her one year anniversary in business.  The name of her company is
Baby's Breath Handmade. She is the gal who designed and made all the awesome hair accessories for my "Flock Together" Spring line 2011.  Remember those?  I'll post a few pics so you can take a look.


Anyhoo...she has enlisted a great group of designers/boutiqes to donate a product or service in honor of her anniversary.  All the details are on her blog (click on the link).  Have a great time checking out all the goodies!



  Warning:  they're FAB- u-LOUS!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Wishing all you Fabulous mommies a wonderful and very

Happy Mother's Day!!
So I sat out on what turned out to be a bit of a challenge this mornging...finding a picture of me with each of my babies.  I'm ususally the one behind the  camera taking the snap shots of life's moments, the big momentous ones, as well as, the sweet little ones that we never want to forget.  The picture above was taken by me this past Thanksgiving (2010).  I'm always beyond thrilled to have all my little chicken gathered up!  It doesn't happen too often, but I do really treasure it. 
Below is a sneak peek into our lives with some random pics.  I hope you enjoy them...maybe you'll find the age range and different phases in life that they each are at as amusing as I still do.  For instance, in the first pic you'll see me and my oldest, Lauren, celebrating her 21st birthday.  Just moments later her and a gaggle of girlfriends were off to Hilton Head to really celebrate.  Yes, she humored me by letting me toast her with her friends gathered around here at the house.
In this pic below, Whitney and I are celebrating her wedding engagement, just the two of us starting the initally planning over a nice lunch downtown.  I know this will be a special time for us both. I want to be sure to capture as much of her as I can before she officially leaves the nest!! She'll be my first one to get married...


Oh, here is my boy!  My one and only, Kyle.  This picture was taken over Thanksgiving weekend.  It was really a great mommy weekend for me as all my babies were here at home!  Let me tell you for certain, that all of us girls go ga-ga for Kyle when he visits :)
Oh, my little Gracie (Isabella is her first name), is such a light in our lives, too.  Here she is with me just after her first stage performance for the first grade production of "Nuts".  Can you guess what role she played?  Give up???  She was a cloud!  The cutest little cloud I've ever seen :)  I love that she's missing her two front teeth, yet another milestone.


Now here is my Charlotte  Rose, so sweet and gentle, she is.  Here we are celebrating after her Holiday performance at nursery school.  Her and her classmates were all just adorable.  They sang to us.  Oh, their little voices were heavenly.  So, so sweet!
And last, but certainly not least is my lovely Liliana.  This picture is a bit dated, but it was super hard to find one of just the two of us.  Miss Liliana is really something else...the best surprise of my entire life!!!!  She is the baby of the family, that's for sure.  She's just so fun and S-P-U-N-K-Y!  I tell her she's "little, but mighty" and that she certainly is.  I've  been told that she'll keep me young....I sure hope so.  

Cheers to all of us mommies and the lights of our lives! Best wishes, again, to you all for a blessed and
 Happy, Happy Mothers's Day!
