Review and Giveaway: Littlest Prince Couture

I am so excited December is here. It's been a crazy year and December always manages to snap me back into reality and into remembering what's important. Where it's better to give than to receive and how AMAZING that warm, fuzzy, feeling is when you know you've done something to help another person. 

I wanted to wait until the beginning of December to share this next company with you because the mama behind it truly embodies the giving spirit and is so unbelievably sweet and generous that I know you will love supporting her mission. The company is Littlest Prince Couture. It is a clothing line made just for boys size 0-18 months and primarily "little man" clothes. Button-down shirts, trouser pants, ties and vests. Such adorable little outfits that scream Little Prince and not a pastel or puppy dog in sight. As a mom of a little man, sure the baby blues and greens are cute, and the puppies, monkeys, and trains are fun for a little bit, but let's be honest, sometimes it gets old, and sometimes you want your little charmer to dress up! With the holidays approaching, the outfits at Littlest Prince are a shoe-in for dinners, church, and parties. 



If that's not enough to get you excited, here's my favorite part about the company. 100%, yes ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of net profits are donated "to charities that are dedicated to improving the chances of life for the millions of infants worldwide that are born prematurely with little chance of survival.". The three charities that Littlest Prince donates to are: Newborns in Need, Embrace, and Neonatal Resuscitation Training Fund. You can learn more about each of these charities here. When I met with Tamara, the mother behind Littlest Prince, I asked her why. Why pour all your time, energy, and financial resources into a company that you will not receive financial gain from. Her answer was simple. She was inspired by a philanthropic doctor n a book she read "Mountains Beyond Mountains" and wanted to help others.(You can learn more about her motivations here) She didn't have the financial means available to give as much as she wanted, so she created a company that would allow her to donate any income she received to charities that help infants. When she told me that I got goosebumps, matter of fact, as I'm writing this I'm getting goosebumps. You tend to see people become friendlier and more generous around the holidays, but this is year round. This is Tamara's passion; helping you find a cute outfit for your little one, and in turn help an infant somewhere in the world. Compassion like that is beyond inspiring.

B got to model! He's wearing 9m pants, 12 m shirt and vest

The clothes are machine washable and for the most part are pretty true to size. I did notice the pants tend to run a little big (which is a great plus if you have a cloth bootie to cover!) and the shirts are a bodysuit so they stay tucked in and work with or without and undershirt. B is about 14.5 months, 21lbs and around 31 inches give or take. When I selected sizes for us to review. I went with 12m pants. They fit well at the waist and were just a touch long. The shirt and vest are both 18m. I was worried that once I washed the shirt (cold/medium heat tumble dry) that it would shrink and it didn't! The vest is also 18m and they both fit quite well.  The clothes are soft and well-made and the vests and ties actually look like mini versions of the adult ones. So adorable! 

So when you're thinking about the holidays, and what ways you can give back. Reward yourself. Get a great outfit for your child, and know that the money you spend on that outfit is going to help another child somewhere and not pad the pockets of some CEO. Know that every time you button that shirt, fasten those pants, or put on that tie that you helped contribute to something so much bigger than yourself. The holiday spirit certainly doesn't begin any better way!
