I love hummingbirds and Picaflor!!! CONTEST CLOSED AND WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Hi all,

The winner is .....

Sue D. with "I follow!"
Thanks all for reading my blog, I really appreciate it!

Sue, I'm going to send you an email too.

========================================


I love to look for cute clothes for Abby and can't always find what I'm looking for UNTIL I saw Picaflor. I couldn't believe my luck when I came upon this store.
I have to warn you though, not only have they got a great selection for girls, they have a great selection for boys too!

I've had the chance to review the Abigail dress in chocolate/antique aqua and ruffle pants in antique aqua from Picaflor. The names couldn't have been linked any better, an Abigail dress for my Abby.
When I received Abby's outfit I was stunned! The dress with ruffle pants is just fantastic, the quality is really, really good & the finish is great (no loose threads, very well knit and sewn) and I love all the little details.
Abby's dress has little flowers, the ruffle pants has a big flower on the right leg. The details come back in both so they really match! I also love the neckline finish on the dress.

Now for all the moms out there, the outfit (100% rayon) is machine washable in cold water and can be tumble dried on low!!! This is important for me as I have lots of washing to do with 5 in our family. I'm not really waiting for a hand wash! I washed it and...the dress is exactly the same as it was before I put it in the wash, no color fading, shrinking, nothing!

Abby loves her little outfit too!
Well, Abby's ready to go with her outfit! Big thumbs up from all of us on Picaflor!
About Picaflor:

Our comfortable knitwear reflects the beauty and simplicity of children.

Picaflor is headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Founder, Nancy Coronado, tests all the designs on her own children before presenting them to you. Each collection is hand-crafted in Nancy’s home country of Peru. A percentage of profits are directed to charities that benefit children in Peru.
