Thanks to Twitter we were able to connect with one the nicest boutique owners to come by – thank you social networking! Alana Smith is the dedicated owner/designer of Missie Moosie – one of the cutest online boutiques around - even the website makes you get excited over shopping.
Missie Moosie is a children’s boutique specializing in stylish clothes (not to mention, the cutest!) that are unique & as fun as your little fashionista. The one-of-a-kind fashions are made from quality, designer fabrics that will totally stand out against average retail clothing. The superb selection for girls ranges in size 12 months to size 7/8. We love letting our littles express their creativity by wearing unique designs and supporting momprenuer companies. And we love that all Missie Moosie clothing is proudly handmade with care in the USA.
Don’t have girls of your own to dress in these whimsical designs? They make the perfect gift for any special girl in your life. They are the perfect every day, holiday, or just because – whatever the occasion – they will stand out with perfection.
The FLOURISH collection consist of great pieces to mix and match in fun designs and fabulous vibrant colors. We LOVE the bubble dress ($52) & matching ruffle leggings ($26).
The URBAN ANGEL collection is funky yet sweet & girly – it appeals to every little girl. The pieces coordinate together so well so you have more than one look – because who doesn’t love versatility in a little girls wardrobe. And of course we adore the matching headbands ($10) to go along with any great ensemble from either collection.
Behind the name: It really is very simple; my oldest daughter gave my youngest daughter the nickname after she was born. I want my business to be a reflection of who I am so it just fit.
Making a statement: I began designing, creating and sewing outfits after the birth of my first daughter. I wanted her to wear clothing that was different, unique, and would make a statement. I truly believe in the philosophy, they are only young once, and so I loved having the ability to dress her in one of a kind boutique style outfits.
And it all began: Although, the business really began 4 years ago, I have always loved the creative aspect of design; whether it was drawing up new outfits for Barbie when I was a child, to gluing fabric swatches inside a homemade doll house for curtains or slipcovers, to playing fabric store as a kid; my instinct to create has always been there. I love fabric and the creative process of putting fabrics together to make something unique.
On a personal note: I whole heartedly love my family. My husband is my biggest fan, and the best supporter, and my 3 children continue to inspire me every day! I am a HUGE sports fanatic, and prefer to watch Sports Center over most shows (aside from American Idol), and will always love the Denver Broncos; I played tennis on a scholarship in college, and still try to be as active as I can. I recently finished my first marathon in 2009, and am looking forward to a few more.
Passion for Fashion: I am thrilled, and honored to be able to create and design unique outfits for your children. I truly LOVE what I do. I take great pride in and believe wholeheartedly in outstanding customer service; and Know that all of Missie Moosie's clothing is handmade with care, right here in the United States! Thank you for shopping with us, and for sharing Missie Moosie with your children.
