I have a little girl which inevitably means a wardrobe FULL of Pink or perhaps if I’m lucky Purple, this was fine when she was young and hairless as it helped to stop the “Is it a Boy or Girl?” question which all new Mum’s get everyday in the supermarket, post office or just walking the dog, whoever now she is much older as has a mass of curly hair – it’s very easy to tell she is a girl.
Yes she is a girlie girl, and loves her Tutu’s and dressing up but it doesn’t mean that just because she wants to wear a dress it has to be pink, frilly or traditional, which is why we are loving the clothing brand Stardust as their children’s clothing is fun and funky and a mile away from the typical pink and girlie clothes hanging in Emmy’s wardrobe.
Emmy was asked to choose an item of clothing from their range and I let her choose herself – she wanted a dress and between us we chose the style and I let her decide the colour, this it what she chose:
This dress is called Angel Wings Skater Dress and costs £25, I let Emmy choose the colour and she wanted Black, I wasn’t sure to start with but she was adamant that was the colour she wanted and I have to say it works!
We love it, the front of the dress is plain with the White Angel wings on the back. It has a tiered skirt effect and being long sleeved is perfect for the very cold weather. It is made from 100% super soft cotton and is really warm to wear, it looks great on and more importantly washes brilliantly with no bobbling or fading.
Emmy loves this dress and always gets cross when it is in the wash. We call her our “Hell’s Angel” when she is wearing it and I’m sure you can see why!
Teamed with tights this is our go to winter essential dress, and for once Emmy is happy to get dress as she loves it.
