But before we get back into bridalwear all over again, let's talk kidswear! I recently became an aunty for the first time and I have to say my brand new neice is so cute! It got me thinking about what was out there fashion-wise for kids, especially with all the upcoming weddings that we will be attending. The easy option is to stick on a western outfit, for example check out the "partywear" sections for children in Monsoon.
However if you're looking for asian outfits for kids, most shops will stock whatever is in fashion for men and women, as mini-versions for children, but there are a few retailers out there who specialise is just childrenswear, such as Rajas and Ranis and Jazelz.com.
These outfits are from Rajas and Ranis:
With childrenswear you can have a lot more creativity with regards to colours, fabrics and styling (I really can't wait for my lil neice to be old enough to play dress up!) although expense is an issue and some of the beautiful childrens' outfits you find are a bit expensive when you consider that they're only going to be worn a few times before they're grown out of, and the fact that kids are kids and they'll probably run around and trash the clothes anyway!
Here's a question for those of you with kids of your own, or those with nephews and neices - where do you get their party/wedding clothes from? Is it better to have them sewn from scratch? or to buy something ready-made from the shops?
