Thanks to the kind folks at Glitter Glam, I’ve finally been able to doll up in matchy matchy outfits with both my children. Considering the fact that I have a boy and a girl, I think to have matchy outfits with both of them is just kinda awesome. I’ve seen the matchy girly dresses for moms and daughters at Glitter Glam x Mary Had a Little Lamb (but I was pleasantly surprised when I reached the store and was told that there are actually two designs that have matching outfits with boys as well!
Needless to say, we tried both the designs.
The first design I’d say is made of really very soft comfy fabric. I know nuts about types of fabric – I only know whether it’s comfy or not so bear with me. There’s lining for the skirt portion so there’s no need to worry about whether it’s too translucent. The girl’s outfit is exactly the same as the mum’s while the boy’s outfit is a short sleeved shirt (with the same striped design) with smart white pants. My boy looked super cool while my girl looked very sweet. I, erm, looked matchy.
The waistline of the dress is a little too high for my liking but yeah, I’ll get used to it. We all need to try something new to make life more colourful eh?
The second design features zebra prints. The boy’s version is a jumper (my boy is wearing his shirt under as the jumper is sold without any inner shirt). I personally thought this dress was more flattering for my body shape, focusing more on my *relatively* flat abdomen and overall clings better to the body, partially because of the type of fabric used. But that’s my preference.
In the end I chose the navy blue design because I thought my kids looked better in that design. Despite knowing the fact that they would outgrow their suits, while I’ll hopefully not grow out of mine, I went with my motherly instincts. 🙂
We tried other outfits that my girl was interested in too like this suit –
and this one –
These dresses are honestly very pretty but not so flattering for me because my thunder thighs just don’t go well with short skirts. They’d look great on those of you who are blessed with long, slender legs.
I first came across Glitter Glam at Isetan NEX, not knowing that they actually have the matchy outfits with daughters as only the boutique at Harbourfront Centre and selected Isetan counters carry the mother-daughter wear on top of the clothes for women. Glitter Glam is a home-grown brand that’s characterised by a work wear collection with an edgy character, yet provides great comfort and excellent fit at the same time. They are also one of the favourable wardrobe sponsors for the TV station and various production houses.
Now here’s the giveaway! Glitter Glam is kindly sponsoring a mother-child outfit for my readers! This contest is open to all moms in Singapore with EITHER a son or daughter, aged 1-6 years old.
