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


Being from Belgium I miss buying European clothes. With my 3 kids I've never really bought designer clothes at full price as I couldn't make myself think it was ok to spend so much on a dress or t-shirt or pants knowing my kids would grow out of them so soon.
With that said, I always kept looking for great sales and then would buy some very nice designer clothes at affordable prices.

I was so happy to have found tylerandtallulah, an online Boutique with European designer clothes! I love the story behind this online boutique!
Tylerandtallulah was launched in 2007 by Beth Vages. It's Beth's 2nd venture in a children's business. She formerly owned the Cape Cod School of Ballet for over 25 years and currently still operates her own ballet school on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Her professional youth ballet company on Cape Cod toured all over New England and has one of the largest Nutcracker's in the state of Massachusetts. In 2006, she turned over the reins of Cape Cod School of Ballet and now currently just owns the Martha's Vineyard School of Ballet.

Beth has always had a passion for European Children's Clothing from the beginning of the birth of her daughter, Holly who is now 30 and then with her son, Jeffrey who is 21. Always trying to find European clothing for children in the New England area was difficult. Back then there was no on-line shopping. She would travel to New York City to buy her children's clothing and try to make connections with European stores. With her favorite children's line being Oilily (one of my favorites too, I just love the bright, bold colors and designs) she remembered how exciting (and exhausting!) it could be. A children's clothes store was always behind her mind.

While sitting in the hospital waiting for her new little girl to be born she was on the phone ordering clothes. Two hours later after the birth of Tyler Hope she was at Oilily in Boston purchasing everything in the store for her little girls arrival home. She immediately tried purchasing European clothing for her child. Even though there were online stores she could not find a site with a large selection of only European lines. She wanted a large choice for her new little princess. The only way to do this was to constantly go to Europe.
She new then the bug hit again and she needed to do something about this crazy addiction.
She came to the realization; why not create an on-line European clothing site for girls?
Make it easy to shop, make it friendly, and offer a great selection of extraordinary European
designers, of excellent quality and of unusual design. Thus, tylerandtallulah was born!

Beth send us the most adorable dress from Floriane.

I just love this dress. I love the pink and brown color combination and the details on this dress. It's still a little too big, so I have to wait till June I think or re-adjust the buttons on the straps of the dress to make it a little shorter, but the quality is amazing! Abby's going to look so cute in this, even more cute then she already is!


Some of the items on the site are above what I would pay but you're really paying for quality. As mentioned above, the selection on European clothes is amazing!
And do you know what the best thing is for me? They have fantastic sales on the site!!! Really, go have a look!!!
I couldn't help but add lots of pictures, as there's so many brands to choose from.
Some of my favorites from 3 Pommes:


Or from IKKS:


I love this necklace from Kenzo:
And of course I couldn't forget to add my favorites from Oilily:

You should really have a look, these are some amazing European designers!!!

Are you excited already? Well, it's going to get even better!!!!!!
Beth has very generously offered a $25.00 gift certificate for 1 of my lucky readers!!!
