A New Clothing Store in Germantown: Monsoon Children
So your bff is getting married and she's has asked your 6-year-old daughter to be her flower girl — which will be totally adorable.
But now you need something light and pretty and well, age-appropriate. Wondering where to turn?
I recently discovered Monsoon Children at Saddle Creek, a U.K. based retailer that's finally brought their clothing stateside.
The first thing I notice is their attention to detail. The party dresses, like this Cleopatra Sparkle Lace dress, are beautifully made, using yards of tulle, satin, and lace ($89.50). What's more, they carry matching big girl/little girl outfits.
I totally love this peasant top, with it's delicate embroidery around the neck and sleeves, and the cotton bodice that's oh, sooo soft. I think a peace sign necklace would complete it, don't you?
Since their fall clothes are arriving, summer stock is marked way down. Amidst a raft of sundresses, I spy several of these beautiful ivory, tea length silk dresses with a pleated bodice.
Originally priced at $148, it's now just $44. That's 70 percent off — crazy good. Monsoon also carries play clothes, and stylish fall jackets. Just ask managers Alanna or Netra (right) for help.
And just in case you think the girls have the corner on cute, look over these boys sweaters, made of a cotton/nylon/lambswool blend. They're as durable as they are good looking ($20-$68).
I loved the detailed images of the giraffe and elephant riding the quintessential double-decker bus. It's a nod to Great Britain — where quality still counts.
