This contest has now ended
Nearly a year ago, maybe more, I was searching for some local people to follow on Twitter. One of the names I came across was Bon BonCupcakes and I simply had to check it out. With a name like that you have to be curious, right? I followed the link to her web site and found the cutest leggings I’ve ever seen! I wanted to buy some right then and there, but stopped myself before my clicker finger got too happy. Quite honestly, I stopped myself because of the price. Considering Evie would be growing like crazy during her first year, I decided it would be better to wait until she was just a little bit bigger and could wear the leggings longer.
Well, lucky for me, the ladies at Bon Bon Cupcakes were gracious enough to send me a sample of their adorable leggings to try out on Evie. And let me tell you, they are just as cute in person as the pictures on the web site. The leggings come rolled up in the shape of a cupcake and in a clear cupcake box. Also included is a “recipe card” for the leggings with the story of how Bon Bon Cupcakes was started by Marianne Cascone and Erin Cascone, two stay-at-home moms, on the back.
The leggings are made of a thick (but not too thick) microfiber material that is much more sturdy than most of the other tights my daughter has. She was still crawling when we first tried them out, so she really tested the durability. The ribbon ruffles around the bottom are adorable and stayed attached even with my daughter pulling and tugging on them. They have been through the washer and dryer several times now and still look just like they did the day we opened the package. Considering how well they hold up, I would say they are definitely worth the price.
Since Evie was just on the upper end of the 9-18 month size, I requested the 2-4T so she would have a little room to grow. Even buying her a size up, it seemed like the sizing runs just a little bit small. I would have expected a 2-4T to be just a little big on her since she was wearing 18 month size clothing, but they actually fit her just right. I’m pretty sure they won’t make it up to a 4T size on her. They are very stretchy, but were a bit tight around her belly.
Besides the adorable leggings, I love that BonBon Cupcakes is a local company and that it all started with a mom who was simply trying to come up with something to cover her daughter’s diaper. Other moms of daughters can certainly commiserate with this. I know I’ve been there!
