Celebrate in Style This Season With Kicky Pants
This year, my oldest is 16 and has his heart set on wearing his regular clothes and I really do not mind as long as he combs his hair and makes some kind of an effort not to look as though he had just been pulled from a bush backwards, and my step son has had his outfit ready to go for about the last 6 months!
My daughter, on the other hand, has so many clothes that I actually thought that perhaps I wouldn't need to get her a dress this year - until I realized that all of the nicer ones that I had anticipated could be a fit for the holidays were either worn once [over the last couple of weeks] for an occasion already OR they were simply too small!
Now, while I'm not against putting her in the same dress for a couple of occasions, and adding accessories to make the dress look different, I much prefer it to look as though she does own more than one set of clothes (which, I assure you she does!) and to have made the effort!
Consequently, during my last-minute search for pretty clothes for Christmas and New Year, I came across a very cute little company called KICKY PANTS having been referred by a friend who had purchased from them past!
Having never heard of Kicky Pants before, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that they are a family run business, which promotes the idea that children should never feel as though they are restricted in their clothing, even when they have a special function to dress for! Wonderful!
My daughters new little dress arrived this morning and it is THE cutest little dress and very wearable for the day-to-day OR for a special occasion!
Made of 95% Bamboo (and 5% Lycra) I was again surprised and thrilled with the method and material! I had never actually heard of clothes being made of bamboo before and it would appear that I have been living under a rock for quite some time because there are several companies that use it and it is a very sustainable crop and earth friendly to use taking only 100 days or so to grow to maturity! Who would have know it!
I Immediately placed the dress on my daughter to catch sight of how it will look when I add her ribbons and sparkly tights and shoes to complete the outfit and she looks ADORABLE (even if I do say so myself!). This is most certainly a keeper!
Complete with a little layered ruffle in the skirt, this dress is breathable, movable, comfortable and pretty all at the same time! With its elastic properties, pretty pattern with various shades of a mauve/purple and with its long sleeves, this is perfect for any Autumn/Winter celebrations and will have any little girl looking the bell of the ball on her special days and even as a day-to-day outfit!
The quality is apparent as it looks to me as though a lot of love and energy has gone into this dress! Beautifully made and just perfect for her needs!
My daughter will be wearing this dress over the next week at Christmas Dinner and I just know that the family are going to be in awe! I can't wait for her to be the Christmas sensation that she is - alongside my boys, of course!!
