Millie seems to be invited to more parties than Paris Hilton could ever wish for!
Party wear for girls can be very pink and very sparkly!!! I have tried to buck this trend a bit and try to open up party wear for Millie so the Barbie look doesn't always have to be the dress code!
For a girl of a certain age (7 years old!!!) their party wear list tends to consist of:
So... in response to this I think I have found good alternatives so that she doesn't look like an extra off The Only Way Is Essex!
You can get a lot of fur type shrugs for girls in all kind of pastel pinky colours with diamond embellishments, which can look lovely but for a funky edge try a shaggier style. This Zara staple was bought a couple of years ago and looks great over t-shirts, coats and jumpers! A shaggier style like this adds a retro feel to an outfit instantly.
Yes you can have fufu and Millie does have alot of pretty items! But for a change this simple straight cut dress from The Gap, with a simple monochrome dotty design is a alternative that can be dressed up or down.
For this I have found a great pair of clog style shoes from H&M, they have a little heel but are so cute they are acceptable! Team with cute stripy socks for that Danish chic!
I love girls to be girls and I think they should try out all kinds of pink and sparkle and Millie does love to go to the supermarket as a princess! But I think sometimes a change and twist on what party outfits you can create is refreshing more than anything.
