I Have a granddaughter who lives in Upstate NY.  It gets COLD there and it’s cold for many many months of the year.  She is in Kindergarten this year, and I wanted to help and get her some new school clothes.  Thankfully, VEENA helped out, and sent me a complete outfit.

  • Chelsea Shirt
  • Hailey Skirt
  • Lola Jacket
VEENA

“The Chelsea -Pink long sleeve top with printed bike and ribbing at the cuffs and hem. Made of soft organic cotton. The Hailey – Black and white reversible skirt with pockets on both sides, an elastic waistband and all-over eye print. Made of soft organic cotton.”

These pieces are made from pre-shrunk 100% organic cotton.  Oh my goodness, they are sooooo very very soft. The skirt and jacket are heavy – not flimsy, and will serve her well from this month on through April or even May.  She will stay nice and warm, but the cotton fabric will wick away any moisture, should she get sweaty on the playground. Since they are pre-shrunk, no worries about them going into the washing machine and dryer!

“The LOLA – Black, white, pink and teal reversible, quilted bomber jacket with pockets on both sides, shoulder detail and eyeglass print. Made of soft organic cotton.”

 

Both the skirt and jacket are reversible with pockets on BOTH SIDES.  Awesome, right!

When I find a company that provides quality products AND has a valuable social “mission” to help either in their own community or for a group that are truly in need (anywhere in the world), I feel that it’s a win-win situation. Please take a few minutes to head over to VEENA and check out who they are and what they have to offer. While you’re there, be sure to check out the VEENA WARRIORS page.  There are lots and lots of valuable and fun information.
