Shrimp and Grits Kids First Fashion Show

Shrimp and Grits Kids was a part of the Fashion for Paws fashion show to support the Charleston Animal Society.  We had 6 little models strut their stuff down the runway and show off the smocked pumpkin bishop, the smocked christmas tree bishop and longall, the smocked labs, smocked carousel bubble, the appliqued cupcake jumper and the appliqued hot cocoa pant set. They were fabulous!

Smocked Alligators and Smocked Whales

I had to share this picture! How adorable are these little ones wearing thier Shrimp and Grits Kids.  They are sporting the Whale Watching Bubble and Shortall and the Edisto Alligator Bubble and Short Set.   These were my top sellers last spring, and I am going to miss the Edisto Alligator smocking plate which I just retired.  I have designed a new alligator smocking plate that you all will love.  Can't wait to post the spring line.  It is too cute!!!

Time to Wear the Smocked Pumpkin Bishops and Longalls!

What a great weekend- I feel like fall is here!  I've seen a lot of pumpkins popping up on peoples' front porches, so it is time to put that Pumpkin Bishop Dress on!  Oh and don't forget about the Pumpkin and Tractor Longall.   Well the weekend is over and Mondays are always our busiest day of the week.  Right now we are catching up on exchanges and finishing up shipping our last Fall shows' orders. I am really getting in to this blogging thing.  I'll be back tomorrow- hopefully!

My First Blog Post!

Wow- this is exciting, my first blog post!  I always said I didn't have enough time to have a blog, but now that I have it set up, I really don't think it will be too hard.  My mission with this blog is to keep everyone updated on what is going on with our smocked kids clothing business, Shrimp and Grits Kids.  I figured this would be a great way to do it!  We are winding up the smocked clothing home shows for fall 2009. What a great trunk show season- so great in fact that we ran out of some sizes of certain styles- yikes.  The reversible appliqued tractor and appliqued santa longall and the reversible jumper with the appliqued pumpkin and appliqued santa were my top sellers by far. Who knew!! Next fall season expect a ton of reversibles!  The smocked labs, smocked christmas pajamas and smocked pumpkin bishop dress were also great sellers this season.  I just want to thank all of my dedicated sales reps and hostesses- yall are amazing! I always say this, but if it weren't for you Shrimp and Grits Kids would not exist. Thanks again!
