Shirin Kids: Mommy and Me Couture Review and Giveaway

As Mother’s day draws near, have you made your wish list? I started looking around for unique and fabulous ideas for gifting when I saw the items at Shirin NYC.  Not only does this artist sell clothes for women, she has created a line of Mommy and Me couture that is a MUST see!

shirinlogo From the press release:

“An Artist from as early as she can remember, Shirin Roubeni’s distinct passion for creating nature and textiles paired with her love for children spawned Shirin Kids. She combines her innovative designs and images with her quality craftsmanship to redefine the fabric of the basic cotton tee. The end result is sophisticate delightful and even edgy collection for the little ones.

Many of the miniature designs find their equivalent counterpart in the adult line, creating a a delightful perk for mother and child in Shirin’s Mommy and Me Couture combinations (a great gift idea for Mother’s Day!)

Shirin is passionate about designing her own prints and textiles. Every one of her pieces is individually hand silkscreened with water based inks which create a soft transparent look that is complemented by pure and vibrant colors.”

shirin1 Shirin was nice enough to send Lily and I a shirt from the Mommy and Me couture collection.  First of all, this is my first ever “couture” piece, so I was pretty darn excited.  But, I will be honest, I wasn’t so sure that couture was right for a 4 year old.  When the shirts arrived,  I was definitely wrong.  These are BY FAR the softest shirts I have ever owned.  The 100% cotton tee is so light and comfortable that Lily said it felt like her pajamas.

0031 The hand silkscreened floral design was beautiful and definitely a stray from Lily’s princess and Dora tees!  She looked adorable in her shirt and she really LOVED that she and I could match!  This tee set can be purchased from Shirin NYC for $95.00.

Would you like to win the very same set Lily and I are wearing?  Shirin NYC has generously donated one tee set to a lucky Not-So-Blog reader!
