Here at Love Chic Living headquarters we’re all about home, family and style. Mainly I blog about interiors and design but today I’ve something a little different, something I can do for the children, that they will love and enjoy. I’m looking at fancy dress outfits for kids.
Props & Frocks is an online fancy dress shop selling all manner of fancy dress outfits for adults and children. My girls like most, love dressing up and we have the obligatory dressing up bag that gets added to periodically. Now the girls are growing up a little they seem to be moving away from the traditional princess outfits although, as you’ll see Miss R is still partial to the odd fairy dress. Props & Frocks have a big selection of all things traditional and non traditional which I really love. In fact, we landed on it a few months ago when we were hunting for an ‘Evacuee’ outfit for Miss E and her school event. It’s a great resource for all those school outfit days that many of us dread, and the cost is pretty reasonable too.
So what have we tried out? Well firstly we have this lovely little Scarlett O’Hara outfit which Miss E spotted and chose for herself. At 9, dressing up can be a bit tricky for her even though she still likes it. I think she was drawn to the grown up feel of this outfit, and we liked the fact that it can also be used for Spanish and Mexican days coming up later this year at school.
Included with this costume is the dress, hat and belt. The gloves aren’t inclued but we found a great pair of satin feel gloves to go with it that are just great for jut £2.95
Next Miss R needed something and knowing that she loves her tap shoes I thought this fabulous Spanish dress woudl be ideal for her days when she’s tapping around the kitchen.
Spanish Dress Costume £13.75
This outfit includes the dress and the flowers in the hair and can be tied at the back for a more flexible fit.
Each outift comes in different sizes too so we chose the most suitable and they fit really well. The Spanish dress is going to be fantastic over the next few years for various school events and for just simple dressing up at home.
And then finally because she’s still small and loves fairies, we had to go for a new set of fairy wings too.
So we’ve had great fun choosing and trying out the new fancy dress outfits from Props & Frocks and would recommend them for good value, creative outfits that fulfill their purpose well.
Disclosure: We were sent the outfits mentioned for the purposes of this article. The comments and opinions are genuine and honest.
