David Charles Eid Collection for Girls
It’s not often I review children’s clothing, but first time for everything right? When I saw the David Charles Eid collection I knew I couldn’t say no!
David Charles is an established childrenswear brand and supply their girls luxury dresses to the likes of Harrods, Saks 5th Ave NYC, and Harvey Nichols in Riyadh. They make special occasion party dresses for girls aged 2-16 years old.
My daughters Zo (nearly eleven) and Iz (nearly seven) chose the dresses they wanted from the website. I wanted them to choose so that they will enjoy wearing them rather than me order something and them moan about it! Yes they’re getting to an age where they have their own taste in fashion much to my dismay.
Zo chose the David Charles Navy Lace Ruffle Gown which I was really pleased about. Lace is definitely on trend and quite hard to find for a ten-year old.
The dresses arrived by courier the next day and were impeccably packaged.
Iz (nearly 7) on the other hand went for something completely different. She chose the Festive Red Brocade Party Dress. Now if you’re from an Asian background you’ll know all about brocade as it’s a very thick fabric, used in wedding wear giving a very shiny and glam effect. I liked Iz’s choice as it’s definitely got that Eastern touch in it which will work for Eid!
My girls were really excited and couldn’t wait to try them on. Now Zo isn’t a girly girl but she can definitely tell what is pretty and what is not. She was slightly afraid the fabric will rip whilst we took some photos but the lace is thick and really good quality. Although it’s a lace dress, it’s not thin lace as this would be really impractical for a child. The nicest thing about the lace ruffle gown are the sleeves which are really elegant and look gorgeous. The dresses do come up a little short so tights will be probably needed for Zo when going out. Please check the sizing guide on the website before ordering. Zo is wearing age 14 an Iz is wearing age 8.
Iz really loved her dress when it arrived and tried it on immediately. I like that I can pair this up with gold bottoms too and turn it into a desi outfit anytime too. Yet it works on its own as a party dress too. The buttons are especially beautiful on this dress, lots of crystals encrusted in gold.
Overall I was really happy with the dresses and more importantly so were the girls! In terms of special occasion wear if you’re after traditional girl’s dresses then David Charles is a really great option. The luxury dresses are certainly not cheap (£199 each) but they often have special offers and sales on so do look out for those. Also there’s free worldwide next day delivery which is unheard of! There are some other really pretty dresses on the website that I may have chosen if it was up to me, take a look and let me know what you think?
If you feel like splashing out this Eid then David Charles is a fantastic choice for your girls.
