Spring is special occasion period: it is not difficult to find formal dress for kids, but the point is not this… nowadays there are elegant dresses for all budgets and for all tastes. The point is what are we buying?
If we go beyond luxury brands, whose price includes not only the name but also noble materials such as silk, muslin, linen, often special occasion dresses mean buying polyester and layers of low quality tulle.
Today I show you how with an honest price you can buy a kids occasion dress that will make you forget fast fashion: a beautiful dress, with a modern and sober print, with a classic cut that fits gorgeous to every little girl, easy to combine with accessories (shoes, socks and any hair accessories) and, above all, in GOTS certified organic cotton poplin.
It comes from Sweden and the brand is Dancing in the Grass, a brand that we already know and that we had the pleasure to shoot for the AW17/18 collection during our blogtour in Southern Sweden. For the period of weddings, confirmations and holy communions, we have chosen a girls dress from the SS18 collection: the print is called Midsummer Crowns, perfect name for a ceremony, don’t you think?!
How to use an occasion dress AFTER the ceremony? This Dancing in the grass dress is really perfect also for everyday life, or almost: certainly your child will not wear it at school, but your girl will surely be adorable for a Sunday family reunion, a birthday party, an afternoon at the cinema with friends, an evening at the restaurant. We combined the dress with socks with an embroidered edge and classic glitter ballerinas, but it will be very nice even with a jeweled sandal or with sneakers, maybe metallic silver or glitter or with a light floral print. For the hair you can add a flower headband, a band with a bow or you could try a French braid hairstyle.
