Win a Girl’s Designer dress from Château de Sable

Designer Kid's ClothesWe received this gorgeous girl’s dress from Château de Sable, who offer a chic collection of French children’s designer clothes,  a couple of months ago.  My 5 year old has been desperate to wear it but as you know the weather hasn’t been very agreeable, which is an understatement, it’s been downright awful.  It came beautifully wrapped and would be a perfect gift.

However, this weekend is looking more promising, with temperatures up to 20 degrees forecast. I’ll believe it when I see it.

But in the meantime, we thought you may like the chance to win a ‘dress of your choice‘ (except for Christening) from the following list of dresses.

Shopping for Little Girls!

To my shear shock and horror Madame asked me to buy her some dresses last week.  I’m not a girlie girl and usually dress her in jeans and t-shirts, which explains why the first few years of her life she was always mistaken for a boy and having a boy’s name doesn’t help either.

Once I’d calmed down and came to the conclusion that a couple of dresses wouldn’t do her any permanent harm, we hit the shops to try and find some non-frilly dresses.  That’s sounds a lot easier than it was.  I don’t know why all girls dresses have to be frilly, have kittens on them or practically say ‘I’m Sexy’!  She picked up a hideous pink, frilly, shiny one with a big satin flower on it!  Barf! I think I might have said ‘over my dead body’! We abandoned the mission and went home empty handed.

Plan B, I hit Google with credit card in hand, with the help of the lovely @lexxclarke.  It took some going, but we managed to find a selection of non-frilly, practical dresses (Next, Vertbaudet, Woolworths and The White Company).  What do you think?  The red one is a bit ‘cute’ for my liking but….

I do hope manufactures of children’s clothing is taking notes!
