Mom-Finds For Girls: Glam-Rock Princess Look


My Mom-Finds posts have been scarce lately as I have been quite preoccupied for the last several weekends. As I did the last time, these finds are, again, for the little girls.  Most moms would agree with me that there really are so much more good finds for girls out there than for boys.  I do hope I get to find cool stuff for boys soon!

Tutu-inspired Tulle Skirt
Baby pink, multi-tiered tulle skirt with satin elastic waist band for less than P500.

I bought this frothy little number when my girl insisted on buying it as soon as she saw it hanging on the rack.  It was pink, it was frilly, it was "a ballerina skirt" -- she proclaimed. That's the last one in that style and color, and it was a size 6! Of course I told her it was way too big and we can get the other style in her size. She quickly pulled it up over her pants and didn't want to take them off, not giving me any choice but to go along and buy it than risk having a scene with her as she was on the verge of a tantrum. And I have to say the skirt was really so adorable so I obliged.

On the mannequin, the tulle skirts were paired with funky printed tops, and knitted leggings which I found to be so preppy and hip.  It does match well with the cotton-candy skirt so I got this gray argyle knit pants as well.

Before walking over to the counter, I just picked up this sleeveless white cotton tee off the rack.  It featured ruffle detail on the arm hole, with bead accents on the neckline which I thought complemented the colors of the leggings and skirt perfectly. This was also big on her, but it was the smallest that the brand carries at size 4.  Oh well, at least she can still wear them in the next year or so, even as a costume!

I bought the whole outfit at the girls' section of SM Department Store a few months back and I lost the receipt, so I apologize that I could not post the exact prices.  But as I recall, each item is between P200 to P500.  The silver flats she was wearing here were bought separately.  Not bad for a whole outfit at P1,000 (approx. USD$21) don't you think?
