You know in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, when that annoying kid Mike shrinks himself so small he can fit inside a television? 

Sometimes I wish I had one of those machines. 

I wouldn’t make myself as small as Mike, that would be unnecessary. I’d shrink myself just enough to fit into my kids’ clothes, because there are some seriously gorgeous children’s designers out there these days. 

I first came across BABY COCO BELLEA on Facebook and fell head over heels for their whimsical designs. As well as creating their own lavish dresses, inspired by the classic couture houses of Paris, they also import eye-catching boutique designs from all over globe. 

When I had the chance to review a dress from their range, I think I might have (ie: definitely did) let out a squeal. 

There were so many romantic, stunningly ornate pieces, ranging in price from £20 – £270, but I kept coming back to the dress above. I loved the simple shape, vibrant colours, and big bow sash. I knew it would look amazing on Big Sis, with her dark brown hair and eyes. 

But I’m a little biased… what do you think??

    I just love the bright colours – you don’t often see kids’ clothes so bold! x
