I always dreamed of having a daughter to dress up. Interestingly, now that I have a daughter, I’m not a big fan of the girly, girly, prissy and fancy clothes. I shop non-stop for my daughter, put her in pink, but stay away from bows, sparkles and she wears much more leggings and jeans than dresses.
I peruse gilt for kids on a daily basis, and drooled over some beautiful special occasion dresses. With the holiday season, quickly approaching, I decided to do a post highlight some of the dresses I would buy for my daughter if she had an occasion to wear them.
Val Max Bow Dress (one size 3 available on sale at Gilt.com)
Lilac & Green Dress with Fluted Layered Skirt (SRP $250, which is a pretty penny for a pint size frock)
Lovely lilac dress by ValMax, made in a cotton blend with a subtle, silky sheen. Around the neckline are sparkling lilac jewels, next to the pale green trim which matches that around the arms. The bodice is fitted to the waistline, from where the skirt flares out beautifully with a panelled, fluted over-layer creating movement and drama. Both layers of the dress are fully lined in contrasting, green satin and there is a concealed zip fastener at the back. Perfect for any special occasion.
Girls beautiful dark pink sleeveless dress by ValMax with a fitted bodice made from a satin silk blend, with a fluted detail around the waist. It has a stunning skirt made from layers of soft tulle giving this dress a princess feel. The collar is embellished with a string of diamanté and has a sweet tassel charm. It is fully lined in a soft cotton and has a concealed zip fastening at the back.
