Fashion Playtes Review; Where girls can design and wear their custom creations!

Several weeks ago, the princess and I got a fabulous opportunity thanks to Fashion Playtes and Boston Parent Bloggers.  She was able to  design an outfit of her choice on their website.  Then we attended a blogger event at their headquarters to participate in a fashion show where she modeled her one of a kind creation!

How cool is that?  Ask any girl who is OBSESSED with fashion and she'll tell you it's a little girl's dream come true!

And would you look at this place!  Very inviting and welcoming!  What a cool place to work!

Their website: is extremely user friendly.  You can shop and design by categories such as: tops, dresses, bottoms, outerwear, accessories, lounge wear, and get this, dolls!!  Want to have matching outfits that you created for your American Girl Doll?  This is the place!

To get started simply  pick your clothing, choose the color, and begin to embellish.  Simple as that.  You can add as much or as little as your like.  When your finished your designer clothing will appear on your model right on the website.  Your child can create as many designs as her little heart desires and keep them in her style book.  (They don't all need to be purchased.  That way they can be creative and play online without breaking the bank.) Whatever you decide to purchase gets shipped right to your door.

The princess chose a dress for her one of a kind creation.   (Any chance to get dressed up and she's all for it!)  

Here she is during her modelling shoot with another little friend from home who was also chosen for the event and came with us!

Before the fashion show the girls visited several stations set up around the room.  Hair and makeup, interview, and photo shoot.  All this went on while us moms got to learn more about the Fashion Playtes website and give our own input to the website "guru".  All this while drinking sparkling cider and munching  fabulous little sandwiches!

The event capped off with a walk down the runway  for all the girls to show off what they had proudly created.

Here are all the girls acting goofy for Justine, the awesome lady from Fashion Playtes who coordinated the whole event.

We had a wonderful afternoon and the little princess really enjoyed showing off her custom made dress to all her friends at school the next week!  It was a big hit.

If you have a fashion diva at home or know someone this would make a fabulous gift!  Fashion Playtes offer gift certificates that you can buy and print out right from your computer.  Go check them out and see what all the fun is about!

Disclosure:  I received a gift certificate to design and purchase an outfit from for a review.   All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
