minis fashion | little eleven paris collections for Captain America and Alice Through the looking glass films

little eleven paris

With the action packed Captain America: Civil War on the big screen and the beautifully shot Alice Through the Looking Glass film being released, Little Eleven Paris has designed capsule collections to pay homage to the classic animated versions. Little Eleven Paris is known for taking popular superhero and Disney characters and giving them a cool, fashionable twist. It was the label Harry was most drawn to at the recent Vida Kids AW16 Press Day with upcoming designs featuring Star Wars and Wonder Woman.

The beautiful dusky pink dress with fine gold piping and detachable wings, and who could resist this fabulous shimmery gold pleated skirt for older girls?!

 

Something for the weekend…

tm - 1 (1)

Gosh, another week gone. The weekend beckons and it seems we may not have the best of weather so if we don’t bump into you at some soft play somewhere in the country trying to wear the little ones out, have a good one and maybe take a look at some things which have caught our eye this week.

Tiba + Marl silver Elwood - minis AND MORE...

Tiba + Marl are launching a silver version of their popular Elwood backpack. Both Katie and Georgie have an Elwood (as does Georgie’s Dad!) and they find them really useful from days out with the kids, to schlepping about London to hitting the gym. They are also ideal for any festival you may be thinking of going to this Summer. You can pre-order it here.

Wyse London Rainbow joggers - minis AND MORE...

As you know, Wyse London cashmere is a firm favourite of ours and it is with much excitement that the Rainbow jogger has arrived! You can purchase it here.

Rachel Balfour Jewellery

Rachel Balfour Jewellery is a new brand which offers everyday understated elegance with a little modern edge. Rachel’s previous work in Press and PR, within the arts and charity sector, has made her committed to always giving back to the community. Ten percent of the profit will go to Rosa – a charitable fund set up to support initiatives that benefit women and girls in the UK. Until the end of the month with every order placed you will receive a Karma beaded ear stud. We love these stacking rings and just check out the unicorn bangle (something for the birthday wish list we think!).

This Zara Kids faded star romper is finally back in stock and is perfect for the Summer. Although in the boys’ section, we feel it would work just as well on girls.

If the rain does make an appearance how about raiding the recycling pile and get the imaginations of our little ones going with these cardboard box ideas from Kate’s Creative Space.

 

mums fashion | pretty non-wired bras

This may seem like an odd post, but there comes a time as a Mum when you will realise that non-wired bras are now an essential underwear item. When young and kid-free with perky breasts and no need to think about extreme comfort, you wouldn’t think about swapping your plunge / balcony / underwired / padded for a “safe”, comfy non-wired version. However, time has passed and gravity has had it’s wicked way, so we now look to a bra which can give us a little hug and not leave welt marks around our rib cage. We have been busy trying to find some non-wired bras which don’t relegate us into the “completely given up” zone of dressing, and thought we’d share some of the pretty non-wired bras we’ve found which will make you feel not too mumsy.
