About JuliaInspires

Its all in the details....

I have been creative and creating things my entire life. Life led me to a career in medical administration, but lets face it- medicine is NOT creative.Therefore, my nights and weekends have always been full of projects.
The truth is as a full time working Mom, my plate is full. Many nights are quite sleepless, sewing and sketching new designs, while watching endless hours of tv (Breaking Bad, Scandal etc lol). Stuffy I am not!!
Sarting this endeavor was by chance-I created my first Bow Holder for my 2 year old daughter Julia, then made a few more as gifts for friends, and finally jumped in with both feet and started making them to sell.
I did a bit of research, and found yes, other people DO make them...but none of them are like mine. My skirts are long, and full not flimsy or poorly made. You will find patterns and color schemes matching the most fashionable on trend nursery decor and little girls rooms. Honestly, if I dont LOVE it, it will not make it into the shop. Hours are spent (while watching marathons of badass tv), putting fabric and ribbon combinations and patterns together. And thats just for the Bow Holders! I worked for months, using my daughter's reaction on perfecting my Toddler Dresses. Soft fabrics, sumptuous ribbon, satin lining- no "itchy spots". I expect nothing less than perfection , so I do strive to provide excellent customer service, working with my customers from concept to delivery. I intend on expanding my designs to include more items in the near future, so keep a look out.
I have big dreams for Julia Inspires. Hoping it enables me to one day quit my day job and focus on my creative side full time, with Julia beside me, inspiring me with just a giggle and a smile.

Welcome to my shop where you will find one of a kind handmade Tutu Bow Holders, hair bows and breath taking toddler tutu dresses.

I create bow holders with full tulle skirts and luxurious satin bows to match the decor of any little girls room. They can also be decor for a birthday party, baby or bridal shower holding gift cards. At your little girl's party, why not clip on pairs of hair bows as favors and pictures of the year that past.
Ive been sketching dresses for as long as I can remember, and now am finally making them. Again this started for my little one, and I couldn't find what I wanted, but had it all sketched out in my head. Well, here they are!

Enjoy shopping and I hope you love these as much as I do.

Additional charges may incur with some custom items. We can discuss any and all customizations and I will set a price at that time. I will not order materials or begin production on any custom orders until paid in full.
