Last week I had the opportunity to choose two beautiful new dresses for my daughter Sylvia. Sylvia is 7 but is currently wearing size 9-10.
She is really quite tall for her age and growing faster and faster. Sometimes I stop and wonder where has my baby gone.
Time flies so fast and in another 10 weeks, Sylvy will be 8 years old.
Sylvia has outgrown a lot of her dresses and so I went online to the House of Fraser website to choose two new girls dresses just in time for spring.
My daughter looks fabulous in lots of colours. I love her in Yellow, brown, red and blue.
I wanted to find two dresses, one more formal dress to wear to church or a special occasion and then one dress which is more modern and funky looking for parties.

The first dress I chose was the Yumi Girls Lace Belted Dress. I love the look of lace. I think I fell in love with lace when I visited Belgium in 2010, the lace stores were amazing and ever since, I’ve become a huge lace fan.
The Yumi dress is really great. It has a soft silky lining which feels really nice against the skin and a zip in the side for getting on and off. It also has a small button at the back and a cute black and gold heart belt.
Sylvia loves this dress and has already worn it twice in less than a week. I think the dress is lovely and it looks really great and fits just right.
The second dress I chose for Sylvia is the Yumi Notting Hill Print Box Pleat Dress. Sylvia has had a few pleated style dresses in the past and loves her skirts to pouffe out at the bottom a little.
What I love about the Notting Hill Dress is the modern look. It has roads with the street names on and a really pretty peach edge.
Sylvia was super excited when she saw this dress and couldn’t wait to try it on.
The dress also matched her sparkly peach shoes which made it that little bit more special.
This dress fastens at the back with a golden Zip and Sylvia and I think it’s a winner. She is planning to wear it the next time she is invited to a party.
I really love these two new dresses. They are both unique and pretty and I have one satisfied little girl. thanks, House of Fraser for the lovely Dresses, they look and feel fantastic.
