A couple of weeks ago a beautiful parcel arrived through our door. It’s the kind of PR sample I love, all wrapped up in soft tissue paper and presented in a swish fabric tote. This was my first experience of Their Nibs, a brand specialising in vintage style children’s clothing.
To be honest, it’s the kind of brand that I regularly drool over on other blogs and in swanky magazines, but only actually buy from for special events. Having had no special events to prepare for until recently, Their Nibs had completely passed me by. But then, last weekend, we had a family Christening to go to. I was looking for an outfit for my three year old that would be comfy enough for her to wear during a church service, but posh enough for a special occasion. And that’s where the blouse sent to us by Their Nibs comes in.
She did look far smarter than this at the beginning of the day, honest. But this picture was taken post-hide and seek game, running around playing chase with her cousins and eating far too much cake. Still, the top looks good, no?
The designs at Their Nibs are all vintage-esque, with an added dose of whimsy. This particular blouse is in a soft chiffon fabric, in a pale blue with fairies and swans detailed on the print. There are some lovely details, like the gathered sleeves, buttons on the top of the blouse and little buttonhole fastening at the neck.
We teamed the blouse with a black tutu style layered skirt and a Ted Baker fake fur gilet. It was just the right amount of fancy. For a more casual look, the top could be worn with jeans, although it’s too special for a regular day at pre-school.
If you’re looking for something a bit different then head to the Their Nibs website. You’ll find retro inspired clothes for boys and girls, from babies up to ten year olds.
Disclosure: We were sent a blouse from Their Nibs for the purpose of this review. All opinions, as ever, remain my own.
