When you think of the word "Tea," what is the first thing that comes to mind? For me, it is the word "global!" It seems like people drink tea all over the globe without regard to demographics, socio-economic status, or age. Tea, the drink, is shared in nearly every culture around the world -- offering inspiration, warmth, and mindfulness.
In the same spirit, Tea Collection offers children's fashions with the tagline "for the little citizens of the world," celebrating the beauty found in cultures around the world. Tea started in 2002 in San Francisco with three pima cotton sweaters; now they offer two full assortments, Tea Collection and Daily Tea, which is available in more than 400 stores throughout the US and abroad. They also donate 40-50% of all sales from the "Thank-You" assortment to The Global Fund for Children.
Michelle over at Tea Collection offered me a GC to their online store to try their clothes first hand for the review. I spent at least an hour or so on their website trying to find the "perfect" outfit for Sophia. There were just WAY too many adorable pieces to choose one, therefore, I ended up with these two items!!
My Review: I was extremely impressed with the quality of these girl's dresses. As most of you know, I am very frugal and purposeful with the money I spend on Sophia's clothes. The clothes must be of excellent quality and workmanship, as well as last through at least two years before I would spend over $20 on a dress. Both of the items I received hold up to my requirement!
The customer service is INCREDIBLE! (Most of you know the importance of customer service to me when I am purchasing a product!) I always have a hard time figuring out what size to buy for Sophia since she is growing like a weed. When I talked to the representative at Tea, she was most helpful in guiding me towards the correct size. She spent a really long time on the phone with me to make sure I was happy with my selection and sizes. It's always a perk when you can actually talk to a person without having to push, #1, #3, 0 for an operator!! :)
I felt as though the pictures online accurately represented the products. Both of the dresses I received looked identical to what I saw online. It is always hard to purchase online without knowing exactly what you are getting! Once I opened up my package, I fell in love all over again with the two dresses I chose!!
Finally, their website is very user friendly. You will find something to suit all of your clothing needs, girl's clothing, boy's clothing, and baby clothes! They have great side links on the webpage to take you to the section you need with just a click! Also, there is a great SALE link to check out all their latest sales!!
I have bookmarked Tea Collection website and will be visiting it frequently from here on out! :) One of my new favorite lines of clothing!
