One of the things I love most about having girls is shopping for them. I hold my hands up and admit it is a guilty pleasure. Their wardrobes are bursting with the prettiest clothes. I just can't get enough because secretly I want to wear them...
When House of Fraser got in touch about reviewing their kids and baby collection my inner shopping addict did a very excited dance.
I admit I don't often shop in House of Fraser. I think this is because subliminally I expect it to be too expensive due to the focus on branded clothing - it is a department store afterall. So I was pleasantly surprised when armed with my £30 budget I was able to buy all this...
So what did I get. Well Little E chose her own dress. It is a cream dropped waist cotton dress with a butterfly motif by Uttam Girls.
Now I admit it is January so pretty much everything is in the sale but even so the clothes really were not as expensive as I was expecting. The fact that I got the girls a dress each plus a pair of tights for Little E for under £30 astonishes me.
It is definitely a summer dress as it is quite thin. We ordered age 4-5 (Little E is 4 next month) but it is on the small side and very short. The butterfly detail on the front is very pretty. She is in love with it and it'll look great with a pair of cropped leggings underneath to negate the shortness. I would recommend you buy a size bigger if you can. We paid £12 (non-sale price £24)
We also chose a pair of sparkly tights for Little E as she has become obsessed with tights this winter. We ordered age 4-6. She is pretty tall for her age and here we have the opposite problem - they are massive! The packaging actually says age 5-6 so they have been advertised incorrectly. I can't fault the quality though, they are stunning tights and will be put away for a year or so! £4.90 (non-sale price £7.00)
Lastly for Little I, who is nearly 1yr old, I chose a red stripey Pumpkin Patch dress with matching bloomer knickers.
Oh my this dress is adorable! I was expecting a thin summer dress, possibly even Jersey material but this is a beautiful lined dress with netting inside to poof it out. Look at the bow! I am in love! It is too big for her at the moment but will be perfect in the summer. £9.99 (non-sale price £19.99).
This experiment has really changed the way I think about House of Fraser and it will definitely be a destination store for my future essential (and non-essential but too cute not to) girls clothes. You can purchase their kids collection in-store or online by clicking these links:
I was able to keep the kid's clothing I chose for review but all opinions are my own.
