Holiday Glam & Contest with Triple Flip

Sponsored by: Triple Flip

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

From a very early age, one of my twin daughters decided she didn’t want frilly, poofy looking dresses. So at around 4 years old,  she opted out of the holiday dress tradition. We now know she has sensory issues so maybe the itchy fabric with the dressier clothing might have contributed to this decision. I always let my kids lead and never push clothing issues. So imagine my delight when this year, her little voice asked to try on a holiday dress while we were purchasing onesie PJs at Triple Flip. I kept my cool and casually handed her the dresses she liked. Both of my girls selected dresses from Triple Flip this year and I totally understand the excitement that goes along with the tradition of holiday dresses and imagining all the fun places to wear them!

The above picture is  the holiday dress my daughter Sophia picked. From the minute she put it on, I could tell it was comfortable and none of the dresses in the Triple Flip Holiday Glam Collection scream Christmas, meaning they will get worn many times throughout the year.  Pictured below is the other dress carefully selected by my other daughter (middle blue with pockets called the Brianna dress).  I know, adorable. And I have to say, all the Triple Flip dresses are so classic but hip and modern that 7+ ages are gravitating to. I completely understand the different stages children have when it comes to picking out clothing; being involved in the process, not wanting to participate, etc. …I’m happy to embrace them all. Right now, my daughters want to be involved with shopping and I love teaching them the importance of spending our treasured consumer dollars carefully and with thought. They hear my questions in the store “where does this designer manufacture?” “what is this made from?” “tell me more about this Collection and how it fits”, etc.  I always leave the Coquitlam Centre Triple Flip store feeling like I’ve invested in more than just great clothing. I always have thoughtful discussions about the movement to manufacture clothing locally with store management and I leave a mainstream store feeling good, with incredibly happy children. The entire experience is a pleasure that always ends with happy faces.

About Triple Flip

Triple Flip – flipwear for the modern girl – fun, active, comfy! The Triple Flip stretch line is manufactured in Alberta, Canada proving that the ‘manufacture local’ emphasis is important to this clothing line. Shop online at www.tripleflip.ca!

You all know I love Triple Flip because of their dedication to manufacturing their house line (stretch-ware) locally. This combined with the fabrics that feel like butter next to my daughters’ skin – they are excited to wear the hip, fun fashion at Triple Flip and enjoy the comfort of how and what it’s made from. I have focused on holiday attire for this article, but I must give you the scoop on another Triple Flip product. Triple Flip manufactured their own line of onesies this year, 100% cotton and super comfy. I purchased two pairs for my girls and they LOVE them. It is so difficult to find 100% cotton PJs that don’t have polyester and flame retardants in the fabric, so if you can find any Triple Flip onesies left in a local or online store – pick up a pair!  The company isn’t re-printing these before the holidays and they are a ‘must have’ item.

To help you with your holiday shopping, Triple Flip is generously giving 1 lucky reader a $100 Gift Certificate to their store. This giveaway will be live for 5 days and is open to all Canadian and US residents.

One lucky winner will win a

Personalized Leggings with Twiga Clothing

Sponsored by: Twiga Clothing

Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

Twiga

I love local. And I admire companies that make the decision to manufacture locally in an industry that is mainly produced overseas – like athletic wear. It’s a much harder road but I think the rewards and awareness for these manufacturing standards is changing. Consumers know the value of slow fashion and all the hard work that goes behind making clothing carefully and close to home.

So I can’t wait to share the clothing company called Twiga Clothing. I love the story of owner Chuck making clothing for his niece. She loved the clothing and in recent years, begged him to make more. To make it special, he personalized the waistband with her name and the result was Twiga. Honestly, what little girl (or mom) wouldn’t want their name on both the waistband and leg band of athletic wear? A great idea coupled with a great story!

About Twiga Clothing

Every little girl is special, and every girl should know it. At Twiga, we make customizable, personalized leggings, shorts, yoga pants, and headbands for both you and her – all made from the highest quality materials right here in Canada.

We are excited to bring you the chance to win a comfy pair of Personalized Twiga leggings! They are made from the highest quality materials right here in Canada. The winner can select their leggings and have their name personalized on the waist and leg cuff.

Thank you to our VERY generous sponsor, Twiga Clothing for the chance to win these leggings! So, let’s get on to the giveaway!

One lucky winner will win this

Twiga Clothing Personalized Leggings ($75-$85 value)!

Triple Flip – Locally Made Active Apparel

So it’s not a huge surprise to you that I really don’t like Malls. When I’m inside them I’m always heading to one store with a direct purpose to get in and out as quickly as possible. I stare into the bright lights and don’t understand the allure of spending hours in a place that does little to support my consumer values; supporting locally manufactured items made with earth friendly materials. The majority of my sons’ clothing is purchased 2nd hand but having growing daughters has put a slight dent in my master plan to buy the majority of their clothes already recycled.  Although, to their credit, my girls are very practical like their mom! <grin>  This practicality recently got traded in when we discovered Triple Flip. Do you want to see the faces of my normally very reluctant shoppers?

    

I laugh every time I look at these pictures because they had SO much fun picking out an outfit. And there was a small part of me that actually felt relief that I could experience this mother/daughter ritual and feel good that I was shopping in a Mall without ignoring my core values trying to support locally made clothing. Because if I haven’t mentioned it – Triple Flip’s stretch wear line is manufactured in Canada! So if this is important to you as a consumer, check out a Triple Flip store or shop online. If visiting a store you’ll need to ask where the stretch line is and let Triple Flip know that you LOVE the fact they are manufacturing their house line in Alberta. I think parents know that Triple Flip clothing is high quality and cute designs…but it’s more than that. For me, it’s a commitment to something that makes me feel good and bridges an outing with my girls that we can all enjoy. My girls also got to experience the ultra fab dressing rooms  – talk about all star treatment. I’m not sure another changing room will ever hold a candle to these again.

I look at this picture and again smile. It’s so outside of our norm to be excited about a shopping experience but that is what our day at Triple Flip became – an experience. And although the girls made their choices very quickly, the day was special and I thank Triple Flip for producing clothing that I’m happy to purchase. In. A. Mall.  Life is just full of surprises.
