Miss C's Christening - Part 1: The Dress & Accessories Post and that Gorgeous Bangle from G by Gabrielle!

For those of you that follow my Facebook Page, you will know that a few weeks ago we celebrated Miss C's Christening.

We had her Christened at 8 months (can you believe she is already 8 months?!) which is the same age as Mr B when we celebrated his Christening. If you are new around these parts, you can catch all of the details of his Peter Rabbit themed Christening which we celebrated two years ago here and here.
 
Instead of overloading you with all of the details of the day, I thought that I would split it in to two posts with the first covering the all important outfit and accessory details!

She refused to get a picture without her hairbrush - no idea where she gets it from?! Haha
When I posted a sneak peek at her outfit on Facebook and Instagram of her outfit, I received a number of messages and emails about her amazing personalised bangle.
 
 
As such I thought that I would share a bit more information on this first up. The bracelet is by an amazing Melbourne lady called Gabrielle, who runs her own business called G by Gabrielle making handcrafted jewellery that is ah-mazing!
 
Gabrielle sells these stunning 'Princess Bangles' for girls and gals of all ages. These are personalised with an initial/initials of your choice and prices start at $129 for a bangle suitable for ages 6-12 months right up to 11-13 years.
 
This was our special little gift to Miss C, as our Princess needed the Princess Bangle of course!
 
I can personally remember being a little girl and having the exact same style of bangle permanently attached around my wrist for many, many years growing up. I wanted to give Miss C something that I cherished and adored so much myself growing up, and I love how it is extra special with the personalised charm with her initial.
 
 
When the sad day does come that she grows out of this down the track, I plan to recycle the charm to use on a necklace, it really will remain a keepsake that she can continue to wear.

 
Because I loved the bangle SO much, I couldn't resist getting one for myself too. Gabrielle also sells these in a ladies size for $149 so that you can have a Mummy & Me matching set like we have!
 
Instead of having my initials, I have opted to have a B and a C for my two gorgeous kiddies. It really is so special to wear and I get so many compliments on it when I am out and about (it never comes off!). Note to husbands out there - this would be a great Chrissie gift for a Mummy or Grandmummy personalised with the kids or grandkiddies initials!
 
Gabrielle has very, very kindly offered my readers the chance to purchase the bangle (or any of her amazing range) at a special 20% off for the month of October. So it is an absolutely perfect time to treat your little Princess, your Grandma or yourself with a piece of stunning, personalised jewellery that you will wear to death.
 
To redeem, simply head to the G by Gabrielle website and enter the code UTTERLY at check out and save yourself 20% off your order.
 
As for the rest of the outfit...
 

The Dress is the Occasion Dress from Seed. It is chiffon with a gorgeous sequined bodice (every girl needs a bit of sparkle right?!).
 
I managed to purchase it at a 20% off VIP sale after realising that the dress I did have her, no longer fitted a few weeks out (talk about panic!). I absolutely love the dress and think she will get a lot of wear out of it over the festive season - so I keep telling my husband... 
 
Her fur cardi was by Baker Baby by Ted Baker and it was just gorgeous! I purchased it from Myer at the end of Winter sales and it was reduced from a crazy $60.00 to around $28.00.

 
The little Silver Mouse shoes are also by Seed (that place is a total money pit for me!), I couldn't resist and also nabbed these on sale too.
 
The headband was actually made by me! I ordered her a headband from the US but it never arrived in time - typically it arrived the day after the event!
 
I was in a bit of a panic the night before, so decided to make her one using the flower that I wore in my hair at our wedding day.
 
 
I actually think that it is a bit more special that what I had planned so all was not lost :-)
 
And lastly the gorgeous, gorgeous sequin hanger is by the super lovely Natalie from Each Day with Jay. This actually sits on her bedroom door and proudly displays her special (or not so special) outfits for the day. I will be featuring more on these gorgeous hangers when I do her room reveal very, very soon - don't blame me, blame the builders for the hold up!!
 
Well that concludes Part 1, I will be back soon with Part 2 that will cover her special morning tea table and the other special details of the day. if you have any questions, as always please feel free to contact me or comment below.
 
Don't forget to head over to G by Gabrielle and check out the stunning Princess Bangle for your Princess (or yourself) and check out the rest of her beautiful range while you are at it!
