Hootkid Party Dresses

Hootkid Party Dresses

Hootkid caters for boys and girls who don’t mind being a little different, if you are looking for something plain and ordinary this is not the brand for you. On the other hand if you love your clothes funky, colourful, original and super stylish you’ll have no trouble filling up your shopping basket here. How gorgeous are these new dresses? Your little lady is sure to steal the spotlight at any party and there are plenty more styles to choose from with lots of options for girls who don’t like sparkles, pink and frills.

Patch It Up Beanie Scarf SetHats, beanies, scarves, mittens, Autumn is the season for cool accessories and Hootkid has shelves full of them. I just love all the chunky knit styles, perfect for keeping the little ones nice and toasty while out and about. Let’s hope we’ll get a good dose of cold weather this year! Speaking of accessories, don’t miss the cute Escapulario Jewellery and the eye catching Old West Cowboy Boots to complete the Hootkid look.

Hootkid I'm the Captain TeeIf you are crazy about stripes like I am you are going to love the current Hootkid range as there are stripes galore in different colours and styles, this is one of my favourite pieces for the boys. The Hootkid I’m the Captain Tee ($29.95) would look fantastic with a nice pair of jeans, it will bring out the vibrant colour of the collar beautifully. Nice bonus: When you spend $100 or more in the Hootkid online store delivery is free Australia wide.

I just love seeing the faces behind all these great Aussie family businesses, I hope you do too. Sadly I don’t get to meet them all in person but at least we all get to know these talented people a little better through our Sunday Coffee meetings. This week it is Hootkid‘s turn run by beautiful mum Caroline, how gorgeous are her little ladies?

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
My ideal sunday is spent with my family, my gorgeous husband Dominic & two beautiful little girls Etianne & Pascale – the plan is to have no plan but to spend it together. So, it could be pancakes for breakfast, feeding the ducks at Albert Park Lake or building a beautiful fairy castle!!

Why did you start Hootkid?
I started Hootkid, because after having my two girls, Etianne & Pascale, I knew I wanted to go back to work but knew the travel schedule of a buyer was hard for a Mum with a young family. My eye was constantly heading in the direction of children’s clothing & accessories, this was all so new exciting, I had never really shopped the children’s stores before! So I guess I really just combined my two loves, fashion & my family to create Hootkid.

What do you like most about running your own store?
Its hard to say what I like most about running my own store, my day is definitely filled up with a mix of things, I manage every aspect of the business so there is never a dull moment! To be honest, I love speaking with happy customers, alot of Mum’s let me know they have received their orders & let me know how much they love their Hootkid gear & even send me in photos. Last week I had an email from Mum who had bought her child some red cowboy boots, she had emailed me to let me know that her daughter was wearing them to bed she loved them so much & sent me in a gorgeous photo, it made my day!

What is your favourite product at Hootkid (at the moment)?
I have SO many faves at Hootkid at the moment, the standout dress for me, would have to be the There & Back Dress ($34.95, size 1-6), its a yummy rainbow of stripey goodness, just gorgeous.
Not to leave the little fellas out, I adore The Flash Tee, red being my fave colour because of course red goes faster!!

What can we expect of Hootkid in the near future?
Hootkid is just growing bigger & bigger at the moment, one year down and plenty more to come, christmas is just around the corner & we have some great offers & stocking fillers available PLUS the winter collection POPS and screams colour and fun which is what Hootkid is all about, lets just say we’re super excited & to watch this space!

So last week the twins finally had their very first session of kindy, exciting for them and exciting for me and hip daddy too. Upon arrival they got to put their backpacks, coats and drink bottles away with all the others and I was glad to see there were no ‘doubles’ there. Didn’t you hate that as a child, having another child in your class with the same lunchbox or even worse, the same clothes? Make sure your child stands out from the crowd with the unique Hootkid range.

Owner Caroline has made it her mission to source hip, stylish, funky children’s clothing from all over the world and make it available to Australian mums. The best part is, she brings you all these cool threads without losing track of your budget! The Hootkid label is very affordable and your order will even be delivered to your door for free, Australia wide. In store you’ll find clothing for boys and girls as well as some fabulous accessories to complete your child’s new look.

Whoever said that boys clothing is boring hasn’t checked out this store, lots of cool styles and bright colours to choose from. One of my favourites is this stripey Smile Don’t Cry Tee ($24.95, size 2-6), perfect for the upcoming Spring/Summer teamed up with a pair of jeans. Speaking of jeans, these Way To Go Harem Pants are a perfect example of why Hootkid is the talk of the town.

With Summer in mind Hootkid also brings you the must-have accessories for the warmer season like sunglasses in all shapes and colours, hats, caps, headbands and bows and the very sweet Escapulario jewellery range. These unique jewellery pieces are absolutely gorgeous and would make lovely gifts for a special little lady in your life. I know my oldest daughter would love this Escapulario Lucky Matrioshka Bracelet.

Right now Hootkid is celebrating its first birthday with a HUGE First Birthday Giveaway Bonanza. There are three fantastic prizes up for grabs and entering is simple, just visit the Hootkid Facebook page and fill out your entry form. The lucky winner of the first prize is taking home this oh-so-divine Incy Egg Chair valued at $399. Wouldn’t that look amazing in your child’s bedroom or playroom?
