With Christmas less than 7 weeks away I am slowly starting to think about the kids’ Christmas outfits. I love picking something special for all of them each Christmas (even if it takes a while to find the perfect outfit) and with five children to dress I have my work cut out for me. From my experience shopping for the younger ones is pretty easy, unfortunately now that Olivia is 7 years old she is starting to grow out of many great children’s fashion labels and the alternative is often too grown-up (read skimpy and over-sexualised) for my liking.
Australian designer and mum Henrietta encountered this problem too so she decided to take matters into her own hands and created One Sunday, a wonderful tween fashion label for girls aged 8-16 that is fun, stylish and age-appropriate. All pieces are designed and made right here in Australia using New Zealand fabrics, ensuring a high-quality, durable and fair-trade product that’s comfortable to wear and comfortable on your conscience too.
The latest One Sunday tween collection has just arrived in store and with 23 new styles added to the line-up your tween’s Summer wardrobe is easily sorted. Whether it’s for Christmas, a special occasion or every day, my girls absolutely love dresses so I was really pleased to see all the pretty new frocks Henrietta has been working on, how sweet are the silver Boat Dress and the stunning Party Dress?
Initially I feared that Olivia would have to wait another year before she could fit the smallest of the One Sunday range but it turned out luck was on her side so she scored herself a perfect dress for the upcoming festive season. The eye catching Retro Dress in Sputto (RRP $89.95, size 8-16) features a retro-style pleated skirt and cute ties that do up at the shoulders, I just wish this dress came in my size too! It is made of soft and breathable cotton, ideal for the summer season, and the pale blue colour is just divine, I think it suits miss 7 beautifully.
