House Of Fraser Clothing : Review

Since starting out my new linky (#TT_Thursday) I am really appreciating the huge variety of kids clothes on the market, I adore seeing my kids looking really smart but also buying clothing items at reasonable affordable prices.

I was recently contacted by House Of Fraser who offered for me to review 2 clothing items from their Autumn Catalogue, perfect for a clothing item for a boy and a girl.

Here’s what we chose;

First up for Leah we have the Name It Girls Dress With Mix Print Skirt aged 3-4 priced at £20, there’s a couple of reasons why I chose this dress, the main reason was because it’s a dress that is suitable for the coming cooler months. It can be easily accessorised with tights or leggings and Leah has some amazing purple autumn/winter boots which work well with the floral detail. One colour I have noticed which is very popular for this season is definitely purple (plum) and floral designs too so this is sure to be a hit, also the detail around the cuffs and neckline is something which really finishes this dress off wonderfully.

House Of Fraser 1When I received the dress I was slightly surprised as the House Of Fraser webpage failed to state that the top purple top of the dress is actually made from a fleece material where as the skirt is cotton. So this dress is certainly for the cooler of days and ideally does need tights/leggings with it to keep your child’s legs cooler.

The dress is machine washable and also tumble dry-able, washed really well and also considering the frill of the skirt it irons easily too!

The dress really does suit Leah, she certainly does enjoy wearing it and I have just ordered some plum leggings to go with this outfit. Keep an eye out on my #TT_Thursday for the complete outfit.

Do you think the purple boots go well with the dress??

For Lewis I let him choose his item of clothing, of which he loved the Name It Boys Mac with Detachable Hood priced at £25. Unfortunately I am unable to provide a link to this product due to it currently being out of stock. The coat is lightweight, suitable for the cooler of days but not waterproof. Lewis loves the detailing of the coat and also that the hood is detachable. On the inside of the coat by the zip is a name label, perfect for children in school.

House Of Fraser 3With Lewis being a tall boy (the average height of a 7-8 year old) at age 5 he fits perfectly in to the 8year coat and will provide him with enough growing space for the next year. The hood can be tightened around the face to protect from showers or wind.

    Great choices! I love both of them – love that the dress isn’t pink (and I think it looks great iwth long socks) and the anorak is lovely! I’d definitely buy that for my boy.

    Lovely choices in items, the little dress is very cute and lovely colouring. I’m not surprised the boys coat is out of stock already!
