Mamacita... Handmade in Mexico + Giveaway

It will come as no surprise to you that I’m a lover of colour, and when it comes to kids, you can never have too much. Earlier this month I had the pleasure of meeting Arani Duggan, one of the passionate minds behind handmade label “Little Thing”; and today it’s my pleasure to introduce to you their Mamacita collection.

Handmade Mexican Girls Dresses

Little Thing is the creative project of two Aussie girls, one of whom lives in Mexico. The Mamacita collection is a range of hand crafted, ethically produced Mexican dresses for babies and toddlers. You’ll also find a couple of dresses in the range just for Mum. The concept is simple silhouettes with beautiful embroidery, and delicious colours.

Handmade Mexican Girls Dresses

I’m simply smitten with the JardĂŚn de Flores Range {pictured above} for it’s traditional Mexican styling. It’s the perfect dress for summer days and play dates. All items in the collection are handmade from 100% cotton and are reasonably priced from $30 – $35.

    Straight away the little pink JardĂ­n de Flores dress stood out for me and I thought I have to have that dress! It is absolutely gorgeous and I would feel so proud to see my little 2yr old wearing one. I would then throw in some additional cash on top of the $50 so I could get the amzing blue JardĂ­n de Flores dress aswell. It would definietly match well with my little one’s bright blue eyes.

  • evie

    I would be using the $50 on the women,s jardin de flores dress but that would be a little selfish so I would be getting a jardin de flores dress in white for my little girl. I had a very similar dress when I was 3-4 years old!!
