It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a clothing addict when it comes to buying for the kids; six binbags full in the loft is pretty much tip of the iceberg if I’m being totally honest but even I can only look at the same stock online everyday. Now here’s a bit of a confession. Yes I know most reviews are all gushing and oh how amazing a company is etc etc but in all honesty – I didn’t realise that House of Fraser did kids clothes – and boy am I now glad that I do! I got a little bit engrossed in perusing their website and before I knew it I’d been on the site almost an hour!
There are literally thousands of items to choose from. I decided to choose each of my three a top each. I let Charlie choose his own and he decided to choose “The Hulk” top which as you will agree is pretty awesome! It’s by Fabric Flavours and cost £16. Now. If I’m being deadly honest that is a bit more than I’d usually pay for a top HOWEVER I do splash the cash on special occasions and once you feel this top – I honestly do feel like it justifies the price. The ‘Don’t Make Me Angry’ is sewn in, not printed on and you know that when it’s wash t means it won’t crack and basically fade away within a few washes/ So liken that to a cheaper top that won’t last half as long and now Charlie is older and clothes last him more than a few months unlike when he was a baby I think it evens itself out.
I decided on a super cute French Bulldog purple stripy top from Swedish company Polarn O Pyret. The dogs little bib is made of extra material which she was a tad obsessed with!! We had this in a size 18-24 (the girls are 19.5 months) and I’d definitely say it’s true to sizing. It’s quite an unusual print and I have to admit I’m a sucker for a little French Bulldog so my eyes lit up when I saw this print! It’s only £6.40 in the sale what a blimmin bargain!!!! Another lovely aspect is that it’s unisex so perfect for everyone.
I chose P1 a United Colours of Benetton long sleeve jumper with a super cute “Hello” on the front. Now I remember when I was small my Mom always used to get our jumpers from United Colour of Benetton so I was drawn to this top. I loved the cut of the neckline and the colour of a light green. The writing on the front is super cute! I would just say that sizing wise it goes from 18-24 to 3-4. This is a 3-4 as P1 is a bit bigger than her sis so this top is baggier but not massive on her. This top is currently in the sale priced at £6.87 (it’s the sale so that’s why a bit of a strange number!)
Ah House of Fraser. I fear for my husband. He already moans that I spend far too much on kids clothes already but I’ve now discovered this Aladdin’s cave of masses and masses of wonderful brands that I have never seen before. If you fancy a bargain (the Hello jumper is down from £22.90!) and super gorgeous quality clothing – then pop over. House of Fraser – you have a convert!!
We were gifted these items in return for an honest review – I think you can see that we were pretty happy with everything!!!
