Little Bow Peep Fairy Tails Contest!!

I love the ladies on Gymbohaven Boutique! So I wanted to do something special and showcase each of them - have a little contest and let you see what is so great about them!

Little Bow Peep Fairy Tails

Carol hand sews everything she makes - which is hard to find these days! She takes great pains to design her streamers to last. Built like Fort Knox, they are a unique design that involve several steps of sewing. All of her ponytail streamer ribbons are sewn together at the top (not glued) to prevent being pulled out, and all ribbon ends are heat sealed to prevent fraying. The hand-knotted top knot is HAND-SEWN to the ribbons, designed to look like a hand-tied set of ribbons. This is yet another step she takes to ensure that the knots don't come loose or fall apart with normal use.

What I truly loved was that the streamers worked no matter how Amber's hair was - when she was younger her hair was baby fine, now that she's older its gotten thicker and has some bulk to it.

With St. Pattys Day coming up - I had to share you with my favorite hair accessory - Shamrock Button Streamer - we bought ours last year and this year Carol has upgraded it to include an interchangeable button. The button is removable and is on a locking pin (not glued on). So you can do several styles with one Streamer!


This is Amber with her side pony - at the age of 11 she loves to play with her hair and wear these!














Now not only does Carol carry hair accessories but Interchangeable OAKb Shoes in sizes 2 through 11!! She offers TWO extra sets of ribbons with each shoe purchase. Change your shoe ribbons to match your outfit or coordinate with your daughter's outfit too!

She sends you bow-tying instructions with your shoe purchase also - Whew! OK I needed that! lol Amber loves
her Crocs so I just had to try Carol's shoes... We got the Madison Slide in shocking pink with the Audrey Hepburn Plaid Black and White ribbon.







Take a look at what arrived!!

They arrived not only in the cutest bag but with crystal clear instructions on how to use the other two ribbons!







I gave them to Amber to try on and had to snap this picture as she was walking (running away with them).





After two hours of wearing them she still wouldn't take them off, she said their soft, bend when she walks and just comfy (with a huge grin on her face).

Personally I LOVE them! I was able to untie them (look at the awesome bottoms!) and re-tie the extra ribbon myself!


They are soft on her feet, she was able to get her feet completely into the shoe no problem and she was able to keep them on as she walked. Something I know all moms worry about when picking shoes.




Carol would like to offer the winner a FREE PAIR OF OAKb SHOES!! (Any pair Carol has on her website)

It is really hard for me to choose my favorite item on your web site! I love everything you come up with. I love the embroidered items the most. My good friend had the mules on one day and insisted we try them on. I was hooked. I'm saving my money to buy a pair soon. This would be a great summer shoe here in Arizona. We frequent the pool & the parks.
