C.I. Castro & Company, Secret Dress Store in San Antonio

The following sponsored post has a giveaway and discount code. All opinions are my own

My daughters love to stay on trend, shop at Justice, and love all the latest fashions. I try my best to keep up, but some styles that I question, I get quickly corrected with “my friends wear this!” Really? I am guessing age is catching up to me.

One thing  is always constant for my little girls, they love an amazing princess ballgown dress. We were invited to check out C.I. Castro & Company’s “secret” outlet store in San Antonio, Texas. The girls got to model dresses and walk a runway wearing their favorite picks. It was a blast seeing all of the girls having fun being themselves and posing for the camera.

While the girls bonded over talk of dresses and playing games, Charles Castro, the grandson of the founder of C.I. Castro, took us on a tour of their outlet center and warehouse. They have been in San Antonio since 1944 and has perfected the perfect girls dress. The outlet store has all of the same dresses, even some originals, that are all of the best quality and design. You may find some dresses here that are not found in the stores, which makes this the perfect place to style your daughter! They have an amazing selection of dresses to choose from, whether you are shopping for the holidays, a baptism, or a wedding. Your girls are bound to leave this store with the perfect traditional dress!
