The Laundry Moms would like to share a ~fabulous find~ this week with the incredible children’s line of clothing called “The Well Dressed Wolf”!
***Note to readers…The Laundry Moms are not to be held responsible for any shopping addictions to this website and their adorable line of clothing!
…with that said please meet The Well Dressed Wolf: charming, polite, impeccably dressed and on a mission. Unfortunately…
Well Dressed Wolf comes from a long line of wolves who used fashion to make a very visible statement- and not in a good way.
His most famous ancestors, S.C. Wolf (aka: Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing) and B.B. Wolf (aka: Big Bad Wolf) used costumes and trickery to deceive, thus ruining the reputation of wolves among children everywhere. W.D. has spent his life trying to change that image, wearing only clothes that say “I’m sweet”, “I’m classy”, “I’m sensible” and most important, “I’m comfortable being me”. Still, despite his best efforts, fear and distrust followed him like a shadow. He knew it was time for a more public platform to pursue his cause.
When he approached, asking to represent our children’s clothing company, we recognized a unique opportunity: a kind and fashionable wolf? What were the odds? Then, upon hearing his unique philosophy, we knew it was the perfect match. Our goal has always been to offer sweet, classic, sensible clothes that allow a child’s individuality to shine. And if we can use our company to teach a lesson or two about acceptance, all the better: while clothes can be a lovely form of self-expression, it’s the character of a person (or wolf) that really matters. Help W.D. teach children everywhere that a really well dressed wolf is kind to others and never judges a book by its’ cover… and a cute little outfit is like the icing on the cake.
MEET THE MAKERS…
Well Dressed Wolf was founded by sisters, Sarah Lemoine and Shannon Caserta, with a desire to deliver something fresh (yet timeless) and simple (yet stylish) to the children’s market. Each design is lovingly created with their own kids in mind. The goal of the shop is to celebrate children looking like children, neither stuffy nor obnoxious. With a ton of cute clothes out there, Shannon (mother of five!) and Sarah (mother of four) set out to keep it simple, knowing that the basics are often the hardest to find.
“For several years I searched for something classic- a solid white shift- for my daughter’s Christmas dress and nothing fit the bill. That’s when I knew there must be others facing a similar dilemma,” says Sarah.
“W.D. Wolf– is dedicated to delivering a quality product at fabulous price. All of our clothes are limited editions, designed around a certain ‘theme’ and created to work together. This is great for mom’s who like their kids to coordinate without matching exactly” says Shannon, “And with minimal prints and subtle colors, they work equally well in church or on the playground- a combination of form & function.”
The company lore about a misunderstood, stereotyped wolf adds a touch of magic to the line and helps teach a lesson about acceptance.
“Obviously we love clothes, but in the end, clothes are just something to wear. Kids need to remember that the real value of a person (or wolf!) lies beneath… we hope our story encourages them to dig a little deeper: take pride in the way you present yourself, yes, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” says Sarah.
