Featured Shop: Twins Twice Tutus plus a giveaway!

Is your Little starting ballet in the New Year? Well, we have the perfect little online shop for you. Twins Twice Tutus specializes in the cutest dance wear, yoga pants and so much more for your little dancer. They will be the cutest ballerina in the class! Who doesn't need a fancy tutu in their closet? The layer upon layer of soft chiffon and tulle is uber-luxurious. The top layers of lilac show off the soft pink underneath - super cute look for dance class! We also love pairing it with a rock star tee and a cute pair of leggings underneath for when you aren't dancing. We also LOVE the Brielle Ruffled Capri Yoga Pant and Simone Belle Sleeve Yoga Top -- they are the perfcet combo and seriously, you will want a pair in your own size. They are beyond soft! You won't be able to get your Little out of them! 

One Shoulder Contrast Leotard & Garden Party Tutu
 We chatted with owner and designer Leisa of Twins Twice Tutus to see just why she decided to start the FAB line of dnace wear and what is up next for the Spring! 

How did Twins Twice Tutus begin?
As far as how I got started with my clothing line - that's a funny story. I have short wellness news tips, called Living Well with Leisa, which broadcast on various local news stations around the United States. All of my daughters are also on the news reports with me and I always design their wardrobe for each segment. My younger twins are five years old and my older twins are six years old and it can be quite difficult finding four matching outfits the same size, so I found it much easier and more exciting to just design all the wardrobe myself.

I would always get calls and emails asking where I purchased their outfits and then the calls became more and more frequent. I found that people werre definitely more interested in fashion than wellness and that maybe I was onto something with my designs. Of course my four little tutu obsessed daughters definitely had a lot to do with my inspiration for starting this company.

What is your favorite part about having your own business?

I get to set my own hours for the most part, which allows me to spend so much more time with my four little princesses. I am also lucky to have my four little models right here at home with me, which makes shooting new items so exciting. I love that I can involve my family in the business and it is such a great learning experience for my girls!!

What is up next for the line?

This year in Spring of 2011, you will be seeing an expansion of my yoga line and many more items added to the studio dance line with great items that can be worn in and out of dance class. Look out for more cute dance shorties and fancy new leotards with a lot of bling that can be worn for ballet class, jazz class or even just out shopping with mom for the day. This will be the year of jeweled leotards, including jewels with lots of rich colors like gorgeous fuschias and turquoise. This was my first year of designing recital costumes for a few different studios on the West Coast and East Coast, which was very exciting and challenging. The company will be doing much more costuming for upcoming Spring recitals and I am in the middle of finishing these designs this month as we get ready for May and June recital season! I am very blessed that 2010 was a year filled with new business adventures. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet so many interesting and talented people in the dance world.  I can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

Now, the fun part! The super sweet owner wants to share a little something from her line!
