Birthday Party Dress Feat. Sugar & Snails Couture

Sugar and Snails Couture

My daughter Gabriella and I couldn’t be more excited to share all about the beautiful Gold & Sequin party dress Sugar & Snails sent her for her birthday!

Gabriella is about to celebrate her birthday {her and her twin brother turn 7 next week!} and she LOVES anything sparkly with tulle and twirly, this dress fits the bill perfectly!


This Gold Sequin and Tulle Party Dress is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! The day it arrived we opened the package together and when she saw it she gasped and said “Oh mommy this is so beautiful!” and she is totally right it is! Honestly the photos don’t do it justice it is SO sparkly! The tulle skirt is made with multi layers of soft tulle not the scratchy kind that can leave a little girl itchy {like mine} it is hemmed so there is no worry or unraveling or shredding like tulle sometimes can. The Sequin top is lined on the inside so no worrying about scratchy sequins either. It has a long zipper that makes it very easy to put on! My daughter loves wearing this dress for tea parties, pretend play or just playing…she headed outside to jump on the trampoline with it on…but quickly thought better of it and changed!


This dress photographs so beautifully and would be perfect for any type of photographs especially for outdoor birthday photos. It will make the most perfectly stunning Christmas or Holiday dress. It would also be a stunning flowergirl dress or perfect for little sisters at  Quinceañeras and Bat Mitzvahs or any special occasion…for Gabriella this is an everyday dress…going to the store or simply going to get the mail she is dressed in full glam!


Sugar & Snails Couture has so much more than Gabriella’s dress, in fact they specializes in Boutique Dreses, Headbands & Bandana Bibs and trust me you will want everything!

We are in love with this Black Lace Maxie Dress! I think this would be a perfect addition to any little girls back to school wardrobe!

as well as these Lace Vintage Dresses, oh with a sweater, knee high socks and boots they  would be PERFECT for fall!

My daughter LOVES this headband and so do I! Its really versatile and would go great with fancy outfits, shorts in the summer or jeans and sweatshirt in the fall/winter!

Beige Satin Flower Headband

Let’s be real here…my daughter wants all the dresses and all the headbands!

We have not washed this dress yet because it hasn’t needed it, however I will hand wash it and lay it flat to dry so I don’t run the risk of melting the tulle or losing the sequins.

Guess what? We have a fun surprise especially for you! ss3

WellieWishers Books are HERE!!!!

In June American Girl launched the ADORABLE WellieWishers Doll line but the doll did not have corresponding books like the other dolls…until now! 3 books have been released and they retail for only $5.99!!!!

The three books are:

Ashlyn’s Unsurprise Party


When Camille loses two teeth in one day, Ashlyn decides to cheer up her friend by throwing a party. The party is meant to be a secret so the other WellieWishers will be surprised too, but a rainstorm and other woes are on the horizon! Will Ashlyn accept help from her friends in order to get everything done?

The Riddle of the Robin

A robin has moved into the garden, and the WellieWishers couldn’t be more excited! As they care for the robin, they learn new things about what birds like to do and eat. But one day, the robin disappears! Will the girls be able to find the robin and his secret? Animal-lover Willa is on the case!

The Muddily-Puddily Show


The WellieWishers are putting on a show, and Emerson is in charge! There are lots of good ideas – but some need work. Ashlyn can’t see inside her pumpkin costume, Willa has a touch of stage-fright, and Kendall has no idea how to make weather effects onstage! Will Emerson learn to take direction so the show can go on?

I think it stands to reason that American will be releasing more Wellie Wishers books in the feature but don’t quote me on that 🙂

These early chapter books are so bright, colorful and friendship oriented, which we love. They are easy-to-read chapter books that follow the 5 WellieWishers friends and their  adventures! The books take place in an enchanted neighborhood garden. The books have great messages including empathy, kindness, and compassion, which are all important traits we want to instill in our daughter! 

One thing that I just love about these books is that the entire book is jam packed full of beautifully colored illustrations, I feel like this will really engage a early reader and hold their attention! Just as the WellieWishers dolls are smaller than the original American Girl dolls, the books are easier to read than the other American Girl chapter books.
These are perfect for a early reader {6,7,8+ year olds} and would make a fantastic gift! My daughter is getting all three books and Ashlyn for her birthday in just a few look for another post soon! 🙂WellieWishers Easy Chapter Books & Dolls from American Girl

Now available everywhere including the American Girl site!

I received these today through the preorder program on amazon.
