Sunday Styles: Velveteen and the magical marvel of childhood.
As much as I love summer, I also love transitioning our wardrobes to fall. The temperatures are still warm enough for flowy skirts and lightweight fabrics but crisp enough to bring a sweater or throw on boots with a dress. When I worked in fashion, Fall was everyone’s favorite season. The fabrics, the sweaters, the outerwear and all the options. Now that my girls are into fashion it is so fun to get them excited for fall, too. Of course, I have a few favorite kids brands when it comes to rich fall tones and delicious fabrics.
One of my top picks for girls fall fashion is Velveteen. Velveteen offers a stunning collection of wearable pieces and gorgeous dresses for girls from 3 months all the way to 12 years old. The fabrics are supple and flowing with meticulous attention to detail and color story. The craftsmanship is true luxury from the sweet little tops and blouses and harem pants to the ruffle, sparkling and shimmering dresses.
What I love about this luxury line is how the clothes embrace the magic of childhood. My girls love the styles and because the pieces are both stunning and whimsical but so wearable that we can make any occasion a special one. Created by a California-born, New Yorker living in Hong-Kong by way of London, Velveteen has a laid back California feel along with a stylish New York vibe and an overall girl of the world energy. I love each and every piece the girls have worn from Velveteen.
I am in love with everything in their new collection. The girls’ newest Velveteen treasures for fall are the Boho style Immi dress, which is going to look amazing with boots (I think I need one, too), the berry block print smocked skirt and a longer Rose Satin Print Violet skirt are perfect fall colors and the frilly black Lulu top is adorable!
And as you know I always like to align myself with companies who try to do good in the world and help women in need whenever, wherever possible. Velveteen makes an effort to work with fair-trade organizations and their clothing is crafted using a combination of Indian artisan techniques. They also provide employment to mothers who would otherwise be unable to provide for their children. I can get behind that!
