So, yes that’s right I have a little girl who likes to shop online and she is only two and a half years old – I’ve warned her father she is going to rinse him when she’s older! So when we were asked by Debenhams to review the Ted Baker’s Girls Dresses for Spring and Summer I loaded up the page on my tablet and we had a look through them together.
Obviously I know what suits her and what doesn’t so I did try and steer her a little but I did want to make sure she got dresses that she loved. Firstly, she decided that she wanted a pink dress(because of course she loves wearing pink and is a really girly girl) so I pulled up all the pink dresses for her to look through.
So her first pick was this gorgeous Pink Shirt Dress – do you want to know the reason she picked it? Because of the the “Oooo sparkly shiny buttons!” Which I personally thought was adorable. This shirt dress has heart shaped rose-gold/copper coloured shiny buttons all the way down the front. It has beautifully pleated cap sleeves and a slightly pleated skirt. It also has the lovely little bow details on the front, either side of the central buttons.
I thought perhaps the buttons might come undone easily but they didn’t they stayed done up well. Just touching the dress you can feel the quality. The material is cotton stretch – meaning it is nice and soft against her skin, but more importantly will grow and stretch with her which is perfect for our little ones who are growing so fast!
We teamed it with a gorgeous floral headband, so white frilly socks and some summer sandals. Perfect for a glorious spring or summer day!
The second dress she wanted to pick had to have something to do with flowers apparently because flowers are pretty and I suggested she choose a dress she’d like to wear to the disco when we go on holiday to Greece later in the year. So, she ended up choosing this White & Floral Asymmetric Dress which is a really different style for her!
It is an absolutely gorgeous little dress. It is a white dress with various coloured flowers and greenery spaced all over it. It has a single strap on one shoulder which is quite a wide strap which was a bonus as I was worried it would look a bit too old for her. Around the neckline their is a lovely little pleated frill in the same fabric which goes up and over the other shoulder to make a little capped sleeve.
The dress flares out as it does down so makes a great dress for twirly twirling or so I am told. What you also don’t realise is that it is lined which will be perfect for the evenings which are slightly cooler on holiday!
