Simply Chickie Review

Last week I had the pure pleasure of reviewing the most adorable organic tshirt EVER! It is made by Gwen at Simply Chickie and I couldn't be more pleased with it. I ordered a 2T and the fit is PERFECT! It didn't shrink in the wash like a lot of 100% organic cotton clothing can.

Let me tell you more about the organic cotton that they use.
Certified organic cotton is cotton grown in fields where the use of pesticides has been discontinued for at least 3 years and where rigorous controls help rebuild the soil's natural fertility. Organic farming is a farming system that relies on natural inputs only. No synthetically produced pesticides or fertilizers are used. Beneficial insects are allowed to flourish to keep pest insects in check. Crop rotations with legumes help maintain fertility and soil microbiology. Weeds are controlled with precision tillage and the old fashioned hoe. The successful organic farm requires much more intensive and innovative management.

Gwen makes each and every shirt and onesie BY HAND! That is attention to detail at its finest.

This shirt is so nice! It has the most perfect message and it is 100% organic. I don't know what more you could want. Well how about a picture of stubborn, cranky Mr. Dexter wearing his shirt?

In this life there are a few things I have learned. You cannot make your children smile for pictures, no matter how hard you try. do have the power to outfit them in dye-free, toxin-free, chemical-free organic clothing! I wouldn't want formaldehyde on my baby's skin, would you? I didn't think so! Head over to see more of Gwen's creations today at Simply Chickie, you will be glad you did!
