Congratulations Kaite – not sure we could go past that innovative use of a bikini bottom!
My mum used to get so excited about dressing my sister and I as kids. I distinctly remember some fashionable tartan skirts, cute tights and the obligatory ‘80s leg warmers. I also remember going through a boy phase in yellow tracksuits with skating knee and elbow pads sewn in. Accessorised with the latest in children’s binoculars.
Not being much of a frou-frou mum, I tend to buy my kids funky rather than frilly – but I get just as excited as my mum did when decking out my babes. I mean for real, WHO can say no to a kid in overalls?
Even she’s stoked.
I remember corduroy pants, black patent leather shoes, hair ribbons and brown sandals.
A pink parka,
A hand-beaded dress,
And a shirt that said “I love my Grandpa”.
I like to think my girls will have their own fun memories from their early fashions. I hope there’s something as definitive as leg warmers to laugh about in their older years, or at the very least, a Hypercolour T-shirt.
Marquise has a beautiful winter range available at the moment, and most likely won’t give my kids a complex when they’re teenagers. They’ll thank me, I’m sure.
Nothing but cute polka dots, crisp whites, fun dresses for cooler weather, and an array of pants, bodysuits, and cosy sweaters.
Since 1932, Marquise’s classic luxury pieces for kiddos have been the first choice for many parents. Their core collection for babies is absolutely divine, and I’ve eyed off a couple of pieces for new mamas in the coming months. Quality clothes that can be passed down to smaller peeps are something that I look for, and polka dots don’t go astray either…
Marquise are giving away $250 worth of clothes to a reader who shares a memory from their own childhood fashion choices. We’d love for you to bust out the old photo albums and give us a glimpse, if you feel so inclined!
All you have to do is share a memory in the comment section (and add a pic if you like) and we’ll choose a winner from there.
Open to residents of Australia, the contest will end next Thursday, May 1. This is a game of skill, and prizes are not transferrable.
