Boo was incredibly lucky to receive two dresses from the lovely people at Monnalisa a few weeks ago. We had such a difficult time choosing from the website as everything just looked amazing! MonnaLisa have both a boys and girls range, I didn’t get anything for little Bugs as he has reviewed quite a lot of clothes over the past couple of months so I let Boo choose, with her being older she appreciates clothes much more and tends to look after them
Monnalisa is an international children’s wear brand that was founded just outside of Florence 45 years ago with the aim of offering clothes that reflect a rustic childhood while also being a-la-mode and modern. Offering 100% made in Italy, fun, fresh and contemporary designer clothing and accessories for babies and children Monnalisa, now in the hands of the grandchildren of the founding husband and wife team, is renowned for high quality fabrics with a focus on design-led, luxe children’s wear that keeps durability and style at the heart of its values. The clothes reflect modern chic; a simple, crisp look with playful twists that cover all aspects of dressing from play-time, to day-time and special occasions, all in styles that will never date.
Boo is a huge Disney fan so when she saw these dresses she just couldn’t resist. Firstly she spotted this Mickey Mouse cashmere mix dress…
Then she spotted this gorgeous Pluto cashmere mix dress…
These dresses are both available in 2-12 years and costs from 85 Euros – 98 Euros.
Something I just love about Monnalisa is the fact that when you are viewing one of their items it also gives you ideas to complete the look. For example the Mickey Dress looks great with a pair of jeans and a gorgeous Mickey headband, while they team the pluto dress with a pair of funky Pluto tights and a bobble hat! I really need ideas like that in my head when buying clothes for the kids, I may not necessarily buy the whole outfit but I get a better idea of how they can wear it and what I have in their wardrobe that will work.
Boo absolutely loves her dresses! They look great and are perfect for wearing with leggings or jeans! They are incredible soft and have stayed in shape so well after washing! They are hand wash only… I do have a hand wash programme on my washing machine and have put them on that and they have been fine!
I am really impressed with the quality of the Monnalisa clothes! They have an incredible range on their website; if you are looking for something a little bit special then do check them out! They do boys and girls clothes ranging from birth to teens. Currently they have a 40% sale on their autumn/winter 13 stock which may be worth checking out and they have just launched their spring/summer 14 range.
I’m off to see if I can pick up any more bargains :O)
