Beautiful, Unique Clothing at bean sprout! Review & Giveaway {US & Canada}

I don't know if I told you all this or not but my brother is getting married in June! He has been friends with his fiancee' for YEARS (we're talking since they were toddlers) and they have always been good friends. Well, they finally decided that they really wanted to be forever friends and are getting married...which is so thrilling for my family and I. We are pretty excited. So, I have begun to look for an outfit for me to wear to the wedding. It will be an outdoor wedding so I want something that will be cooler and also pretty at the same time. Not only do I have to find an outfit for me, but I also need nice outfits for my children. The boys I am not too worried about because all they really need is a nice dress shirt, pants and a tie. My daughter on the other hand is a tad bit harder to find clothing for because...well...she's a girl. Girls need frills, lace, fancy and spin-worthy dresses. :) Especially my girl.
So, in my search for a dress for Hannah I came across a WONDERFUL company that is based in Toronto, Canada called bean sprout. They are a children's online clothing shop that carries gorgeous clothes for children ages newborn to 12 years and they also carry formal/special occasion clothing! After perusing their website, I fell in love with the styles and brands. bean sprout was founded by Trish Haddad in 1995 and here is more of her story...


I opened bean sprout as a bricks and mortar store in Toronto in 1995. I am proud to say that it was voted the best children's clothing shop in Toronto, was listed as one of Toronto's Top 200 stores by Toronto Life Magazine and appeared on The Mom Show. 

After 16 successful years I have transformed bean sprout into an on-line store to conveniently provide exciting brands, exemplary customer service, excellent quality and unique fashion for children ages newborn to 12 years. I am passionate about bright, colourful clothing and accessories for children and I personally select each item based on its style, quality, wear-ability and price. You can shop here with confidence at an on-line store you can trust.

There was one dress in particular that I was immediately drawn to and LOVED...so, when I contacted Trish about doing a review for her, I was ecstatic that she was interested in working with me!
So, for this review I was sent the Jolene Dress (teal color) in size 8. Hannah is wearing a size 6-7 right now and so I figured that if I got the dress in a size bigger than she needs, it would fit her perfectly for the wedding. Ok, so this dress is breathtaking to say the least. The material is 100% Polyester (hand washable) and looks iridescent in the light.
The color itself is teal and it is very shiny and glamorous looking. There are also stitched medallions of fabric sewn all over the skirt of this dress and that adds such a wonderful touch of elegance...I love it!
Around the waist, there is an over-sized waist band that features a lovely, removable flower. The waist band wraps around to the back of the dress, where it has long, elegant ribbons to tie into a big bow.
Another really beautiful feature on this dress is the sleeves. They are cap sleeves and are very light and puffy...truly princess quality sleeves! They aren't huge though and don't have a band around the arm...they are just poofed into the inside of the sleeve. 
So, when I showed Hannah this dress for the first time she was SO excited. She had to try it on right then and there. :) Doesn't she look beautiful? This dress is a size 8 and already it fits her wonderfully. It barely touches the floor so I think that by the time June arrives it will be the perfect length. 
As you can see, I have one happy little girl on my hands. And yes, this dress passed the "spinny dress" test. Every dress that Hannah tries on, she spins around in it. If the skirt billows out, it passes the test. This was definitely a good dress for spinning around in. :) It was hard to get her to give it up and hang it so it wouldn't get dirty...she loves it so much! The Jolene Dress typically retails for $114.99 but is currently on sale for only $39.99, which is a steal! I would say it is definitely worth buying. What a gorgeous dress!!
bean sprout carries clothing for both boys and girls, as well as infants too so if you have a really little one you can find something for them as well, which is great. You can find bean sprout online, as well as on Facebook and Twitter

So, in my opinion...bean sprout is a wonderful company! I love how prompt Trish was in her communications with me and her customer service skills are amazing. The products that bean sprout carries are high quality, gorgeous and well-made and I am so happy with the dress I received for this review. I am very much looking forward to the upcoming wedding and am relieved to say that I have found a gorgeous dress for my daughter. She will look wonderful and I will be telling everyone where the dress came from! I would definitely recommend bean sprout to anyone...wonderful company, fantastic products and superb customer service!
Trish has offered to give one of you a $100 gift certificate to her website! This giveaway is open to the US and also to my lovely Canadian fans! Here are your entry options...
