Misha Lulu is a family owned and operated fashion brand founded by Karen and Joe Salazar. Their darling Bela is the biggest inspiration behind all they do. This fashion forward, hip clothing line is full of whimsical detail and funk in every piece. Karen, the mastermind behind it all, really goes to great lengths to ensure the quality and uniqueness of every item.

This little brand is truly so special as it is a family effort and everyone takes part in a little creating. Karen's mother, Grandma Blanquita, hand paints vintage inspired images on the aprons, and Joe's mother, Grandma Chol, crochets all the fun hats. Even little Bela has a say in the type of clothing she wants to see in Misha Lulu each season! Also, I have the privilege of knowing Karen personally and I can attest to how much love and attention she dedicates to her creativity and building a line that is so much full of love and personality.

For Cakies readers, Misha Lulu is doing a fantastic giveaway. I will be picking two winners, that's right... two!!! One winner will receive the Misha Lulu bow dress (any size from 3 months- 8yrs.) and a Grandma Chol crocheted hat and the other winner will receive 2 boy Misha Lulu tees (any size from 2T-8). Examples of what will be given can be seen in the pictures above.

All you need to do is a leave a comment with the following information:
1. If you are entering to win an item for a boy or girl (or could be both).
2. Your favorite post from the Misha Lulu blog. Karen always finds the greatest shops, artists, and designers, so I am sure you will learn something new as I always do!

The giveaway will end at 8am PST on Wednesday, October 21st and the winner will be announced on this post on Thursday. Good luck!!! Thanks so much Misha Lulu!!!

    My favorite post was "The Berlin Reunion". Amazing photos and great information. I also loved the introduction to " Super ninon". I will definitely visit the blog again : )

  39. i'm entering for a little girl (my darling, ella, 5yo)...and my favorite recent blog post from misha lulu was this one: http://www.mishalulu.com/blog/?p=1515 referencing lyndie dourthe. i'm always looking for whimsical, vintage inspiration, and lyndie's floral designs are spot-on!

  40. 1. I will enter for a boy or a girl. I have kidlets of both genders who will be striking in those designs.

    2. How can I pick one post? What is warm fruit punch? I want some! The neck accessories - love them! And that's just the first page!

  41. I am entering for both girl and boys! I love Misha Lulu's stuff and occasionally hop on her blog to catch what creative stuff she has found...

    But, one of the latest posts in September, I just loved her daughter's outfit, sooo:

  42. Hello! I am entering for the boys.. I really liked the funky hats [although the dresses were super cute too!]

  43. Hi Ruby, I love the Visit to Berlin post. That marionette is amazing!
    Would love to win for a boy or girl as I have both! Thank you

  44. i love the self portrait post. as a mother of a 4 year old preschooler, i see a lot artworks form young artists and this one brought a smile to my face. so cute... i love both girls and boys apparel that we can get a chance to win... hope i win!!!!

  45. I am entering for a girl. I love Misha Lulu, I follow her blog too! My favorite post lately was the one about the Berlin Reunion.

  46. i would like to be in the running for my daughter lyla. my favorite post thus far is The Berlin Reunion. it was such a breathtaking exhibition of the narration of the Berlin Wall. the marionettes took me back to my childhood vacations in italy with my family as they always do and the massive sizes were incredible. what a fantastic artistic abstract way to represent the fall of the wall and the unity of the germans! also reminded me of my backpacking trip to europe after my college grad. with my best friend, oh so beautiful Berlin!

  47. I have a granddaughter and grandson so either would be great.

    My favourite blog is her one on October 8th of the Berlin Reunion.

    Renee xoxo
