First Blog Entry

Well as this is my first entry I will begin by introducing myself and my business.
My Name is Karla and I am the founder of Little Miss Lacey a clothing boutique for girls. I Married the love of my Life Kent in 2006 and we have 3 beautiful children Dylan 9, Bryley 3 and Lacey 1 (nearly 2).

I found out I had a real interest in baby fashion after I had my first (and only) daughter in April 2009, Lacey was born 6 weeks early at 4lb 13oz and spent her first 10 days of life in the special care nursery at Gold Coast hospital. My 2 previous baby boys were 8lb 1oz and 7lb 13oz so I was in no way prepared for such a tiny baby nearly half the size of my boys.
I was discharged after only 3 days in hospital and had to go home without my little girl which was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, I didnt want to let my boys see me upset and decided I needed to stay strong so one of the things I did was go shopping for a new teeny wardrobe for my little girl it was fun but it was also not as easy as one would have thought. Premmie baby clothes are actually not so easy to come by I brought anything I could find that would fit her and it soon occured to me that compared to the actual wardrobe I had already stocked for her this one did not hold up I was going to need to get creative.
Lacey was finally discharged and I really wanted to get some photos done for her in a tutu but again couldnt find anything to fit and actually brought a dolls one to start with haha!
After a few trial and errors I finally came up with something I was happy with myself then decided I needed it in a few colours and maybe some matching headbands and well it all just started from there and Little Miss Lacey was born only a few months after my baby girl Little Miss Lacey herself came into the world so I think the name is really fitting.
I have for the most part enjoyed the journey thus far and love coming up with new and exciting creations and thinking outside the square, My sister has also come on board and we now have Little Miss Lacey NZ so working along side her has been amazing we talk nearly 10 times a day and bounce ideas off each other she is such a big support.
The workload has become so large that we have in total 5 people who work for Little Miss Lacey and Little Miss Lacey NZ I will introduce them all in a later blog but for now I think I may have bored you to death enough for today haha! Better get back to work whilst my 2 little ones are sleeping.
