David Charles dresses review and giveaway

When it comes to girls’ fashion, there are few brands more iconic than David Charles Childrenswear. Since 1970, they have been supplying the world’s finest stores including Harrods in London and Saks in 5th Avenue, New York. The designers have dressed Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Madonna’s daughter Lourdes among other famous young names. They specialise in luxury dresses for girls aged from 2 to 16 years old. Libby and Lia were delighted to be offered the opportunity to choose a dress each from the Spring / Summer 2019 range. Here’s what they thought of them and how you can win a dress of your choice from the same collection.

Libby’s Royal Blue Winter Floral Maxi Dress

For Libby, beautiful dresses are all about length, floral patterns and floaty fabric. She picked out several dresses that she absolutely loved, and after much deliberation she went for the Royal Blue Winter Floral Maxi Dress. 

The outer fabric has a subtle polka dot pattern with a floral print in watercolour style. The look of it is elegant and formal, with the length currently being all the way to the floor on Libby. It’s a slim fit and she has a little room to grow into it, so I know it will last her a couple of years. 

The arms of the dress are in a cold-shoulder style and there’s a lovely tie around the waist and a ruffle trim. It fastens at the back with a concealed zip that does up easily. Libby has been begging me to let her wear the dress and I look forward to seeing her in it the next time we go somewhere formal. 

Lia’s Rose Pink Ruffle Party Gown

In contrast to her sister, Lia’s choice of dress was very quick and very definite. In her eyes, the only thing better than a pink dress is a pink dress with flowers on. So a pink party dress with a rose ruffle was quite literally her perfect dress. 

The colour of the dress is a very soft, pastel pink. The colour matches throughout the dress from mesh outer to satin roses and shaped lining. The shape of it is beautiful, with a fitted top that flares out towards the bottom and rises to the sides when she whirls around. 

Like Libby’s dress, Lia’s does up with a concealed zip at the back. Whilst we have to help them both to do the zips, they can otherwise managed to get dressed themselves despite the intricate detailing on the dresses. 

Win a dress from the Spring / Summer 2019 collection

I’m so pleased to be able to offer one reader an opportunity to win a dress from the Spring / Summer 2019 collection. Better still, you can choose your favourite dress in any size.
