The Vertbaudet catalogue is one of the few catalogues I really love looking through and I always find plenty of things I want to buy for the kids. The current Spring collection is no exception, with plenty of gorgeous dresses for Miss C and cool t-shirts and jeans for Wee Z.
Miss C was very lucky to receive some of the new Spring collection from Vertbaudet to review. Here's what she got:
Heart Print Blouse - (from £17) Such a sweet top that would look really pretty with a pair of leggings and sandals in the Summer and with a cardigan on top in the Spring. It's made from 100% cotton voile.
Playsuit - (from £22) This all in one playsuit is just perfect for a day at the beach. It's light and soft so it will keep Miss C cool and the elasticated edging means she can get it on and off herself. I love the cute frills around the neckline and the little pockets for keeping pennies for ice cream in. It's made from 95% cotton and 5% elastane.
Happy Price T-Shirts (from £9) and Leggings (from £11) - The Happy Price range is an excellent option for stocking up on essentials. The T-Shirt in the picture comes in a pack of 3, with a different colour and motif on each t-shirt. There are six combo packs to choose from so you'll definitely find something to suit your little one. The Happy Price stretch leggings come in packs of two and again, there are six combo packs of colours to choose from. These packs cost less than £10 and can be mixed and matched to create an outfit. A simple T-Shirt and leggings combo is perfect for a day at the park or playing outside in the garden.
Dress, Leggings and Bolero Set - (from £27) One of the things I love about Vertbaudet is the way in which they create outfits that can be worn in more than one way. Some of their dresses have buttons which transforms the dress into a top whilst their jeans can be made into shorts. This set is a fine example of how you can buy an outfit with three key pieces and combine them with other things to make a whole new outfit. The leggings could be worn with a simple T-Shirt from the Happy Price range. The dress could be worn on it's own on a hot Summer's day or with tights for a party with the bolero on top. The dress and leggings are easy to slip on so Miss C can practise dressing herself and the bolero attaches on to buttons on the dress. These are nice and chunky so Miss C can do them herself. This set comes in three different colours; pink, olive and grey-lilac.
Here's Miss C modelling the set:
Each of the items we received were really well made and of good quality. Most of their items are made from cotton. Each item washed really well and held its shape after drying and ironing. Kids may grow out of their clothes fast however, I still want the quality to be good and durable as I'd spend more on replacing cheaper clothes that rip after a playing session outside or that fade or bauble after the first wash.
The only thing I have found with Vertbaudet clothing is that some of their items come up a bit small for the age you need. Miss C was wearing age 5 leggings and they were a bit short for her. Now Miss C isn't tall; she's still in age 3-4 clothing for most retailers so it's worth keeping sizing in mind if you do make a purchase from Vertbaudet. Of course, they have a handy size chart on their website and the option to return or exchange free of charge!
Right now they have a fantastic sale on so if you're looking to stock up on Spring and Summer clothing, get over there and have a nosy!
