A few weeks ago, I took Sylvia to the Rachel Riley store in London to choose a designer dress. We do love dresses and Sylvia is really enjoying building a collection. It’s something we find fun and although I have a few favourite brands I particularly love Rachel Riley’s style.

We don’t have tons of money and to be honest, I never imagined Sylvia would own so many pretty dresses. It’s not something I would go out and spend money on naturally, not with other more important needs. However we kind of ended up with a collection through blogging and now it’s become a fun thing we love.
Around the time I began blogging Sylvia was given some hand me downs with some lovely second-hand dresses from Next and Ted Baker.
We were also sent some Rachel Riley dresses to review and Sylvia was gifted a lovely dress by a friend for her birthday. We were given tons of second-hand pyjamas and so we began creating style blog posts originally My Sunday Style we changed it to Sylvia’s Style.
I guess things have taken off from there. Since I began Sylvia’s Style posts, she has had some lovely dresses sent to her from companies such as House of Fraser and Debenhams. She’s also been sent some fantastic costumes and fairy dresses.
Wearing pretty dresses gives my daughter confidence. She often wants to wear a dress out, no matter where she is going. Sylvia really is a girly girl. I wasn’t very girly when I was a child so it’s kind of strange how different we are.
The one thing I am loving is reviewing fantastic children’s clothes and where we have only done this once a month in the past, I’m hoping to post Sylvia’s Style blog post more regular. We will share clothing items we love, one’s that I pick out and one’s that Sylvia chooses.
So when we went to the Rachel Riley store, Sylvia picked out her own dress. She chose this beautiful blue Flamingo style dress and it looks absolutely fantastic on her. I hope you like this post and the dress. I certainly do.

I absolutely adore this dress – your daughter looks beautiful! I wasn’t a girlie girl either so I’m hoping my daughter is into dresses and pretty things in her hair!
Thanks Katy. It is a lovely one and i’d wear it if they had one in my size too.

I LOVE flamingoes so this dress is right up my street – it’s gorgeous! I wish they had it in adult size! You’re so lucky to have been gifted loads of clothes, looking forward to seeing more of Sylvia’s style! Xx
Me too…I’m a huge flamingo fan and I don’t know why. They do sell this dress in adult size!
