032013_ChirpShop_AdrienneWhat better way to welcome the first day of Spring than with a little chirp-chirp?

“Chirp is an online clothing shop featuring classic wardrobe staples with a fun and unexpected twist,” owner Adrienne F. Hofmann tells me. “I create and design all the products that you see on the site.”

Adrienne started her Connecticut-based online business (my home State!) to answer this often-asked question:

Babies are cute just on their own, but how much cuter are they in mini versions of adult styles?

032013_ChirpShop_03Welcome to The Chirp Shop! With this inspiration, Adrienne gave the classic polo shirt a little bit of pizzazz by building in an element of surprise –for those occasions that warrant unexpected creative expression as well as for those that don’t. She calls them her signature “popped” collars, which can be worn folded down. And this is just the beginning …

032013_ChirpShop_02Everyone loves to give something to a new mother that will make her feel special and make their baby look irresistibly stylish. And so, after trial and error and lots of work and support from my family and friends and their babies, Chirp was born!

032013_ChirpShop_TulleBeltAdrienne strives to make the shopping experience at Chirp as easy as possible, with simple ordering of beautifully hand crafted, comfortable clothing and accessories made from 100% cotton, that’s tagless, too! Fast, flat-rate shipping adds to the ease. Styles are made for infants, with matching toddler sizes available for your other “Chirpmeisters” – you can even enter the Chirpmeister of the Month contest by tagging Chirp in a photo and posting it to the facebook page, or emailing the photo to Chirp. New designs include bucket hats, hoodies, longsleeved shirts and more – like the adorable Tulle Belt, with tutu included! I also like the little plush birdies.

Celebrity parents like Sarah Michelle Gellar –and her daughter- are loving Pansy Pie tutus …

Our latest Easter collection brings on the bunny like never before. Give your special little one a holiday they will never forget, and photos that you will cherish over and over again.

Danielle Carr is the designer behind Pansy Pie, a St. Louis, MO-based company where she creates not only The World’s Poofiest Tutus, but tutu outfits, custom orders, leg warmers, and tutu tutorials to make your own boutique-quality fashions. “My tutus and tutu outfits are designed and created with lots of love,” she says. “I use only the highest quality products in my creations and strive to make the best product for customers.”

Handmade in the USA. Pansy Pie tutus are hand-tied in a special way which makes them fantastically full. They’re made from high quality tulle sourced in the United States, too.

Danielle and her company also like to find really unique and fun ways to celebrate any special event, whether it’s a holiday like Easter, or a birthday. Read on for some of them:
