When I first became a mum to a little girl, I didn’t realise that I would suffer wardrobe envy quite so soon. At the tender age of almost-four, Frog has a better collection of clothes than I do. Annoying.
Whenever we go into charity or vintage shops looking for the odd treasure, I often come out armed with something cute for her. She also gets given lots of clothes from generous family and friends (it’s SO unfair) and, of course, I sometimes treat her myself. I mean, how am I meant to resist when there are so many cool brands for kids around?!
Yellow Mellon is one such brand. I discovered this site when I was approached to review an item of clothing from it for my daughter. I put my trust in the Yellow Mellon team to send me something nice, of their choice. My only brief: nothing covered in cartoon characters or too luridly pink.
This is what they sent me:
(The dress, obvs, not the child.)
The dress I was sent is a beautiful cotton one, in a ditzy summer print, reminiscent of dresses I used to wear as a kid myself. At £50 it’s not cheap, but that price pays for a beautiful amount of detailing in the bodice and a quality of fabric that makes this dress perfect for a special occasion.
Yellow Mellon don’t just do dresses. And they don’t just do clothes for girls.
Here are some other picks from the site:
There are cheaper items to pick from (I wouldn’t usually spend £50 on a dress for my nearly-four year old – she grows too quickly to justify those kinds of prices, unless it’s a really special occasion), which make it a good place to get the odd bit for a holiday.
Thanks to Yellow Mellon for sending me this beautiful dress for review. And thanks to my daughter for humouring her mum and letting me take photos of her wearing the dress while holding some flowers.
Lest you think she was the perfect model though, the “photo shoot” ended with her discarding the flowers in favour of snails, before chucking them at me.
