With two ladies away at market in New York, we decided it was perfect timing to add a monthly post about our wonderful wholesale customers!  Jonnie Miller from Fancy Pant’s was gracious enough to chat with us about why she carries bella bliss® in her store.  Located in the beautiful city of Charlotte, North Carolina, Fancy Pants is a premier children’s clothing boutique.  Jonni has been purchasing the bella bliss collection to stock her shelves since the late nineties.  Fancy Pant’s carries only quality lines and we are proud to be one of their biggest sellers from the selective group of designers they carry!

Jonnie has expressed her love for all things bliss and wanted to share a few of her favorite must-haves! From the Spring 13 Collection.  Fancy Pant’s just loves the Frances Floral print.  Jonni loves how crisp, clean and fresh this pattern is for any occasion.

A customer favorite for her is the  Sleeveless A-Line Party Dress.  This versatile dress comes in a variety of colors including the rouge pique, which is complementary with any skin tone.

Last year the Zoe Pima Dress was one of their best sellers and they were thrilled it was in the Spring 13 line as well.  The Sleeveless Zoe Pima Dress comes in navy and red stripes and will add style to any occasion.

What keeps bringing Fancy Pant’s back to bella bliss?  Jonni says she just loves how happy the colors are and how great the clothes look on everyone.  She is always looking for clothing that feels great, with a prefect fit. The Pima cotton is just amazing and if you just feel the clothes you know how high quality they are.
