While we definitively draw the line when it comes to high heels for little girls (um, just nope, sorry Suri!), we are pretty easily moved by frills and frippery, especially when it comes to tiny filles in tutus… After all, what could be cuter? Especially when worn in a bit of a rock star style with vintage-look band t-shirts or over stripey leggings!
Matilda Rose has been a name on the lips of Hong Kong mamas in the know for a little while now, but with the launch of the brand’s website, now everyone can shop for all things sugar and spice for their little princesses (or princes – we’re equal opportunities at Sassy Mama). Check out the line of Pettiskirts which are knee-length tutus made of double-layered nylon chiffon available in both Standard and Premium — Premium skirts have more volume so are more for special occasions. The Pettiskirts come in a rainbow of colours, so are especially great for tiny bridesmaids who have to match, and range in price from HK175 to HK775 depending on style and size.
As well as the signature skirts, don’t miss the Pettitops (little embellished vests) and Pettibottoms (frilled bloomers for teeny bums) as well as a range of ballet pumps, crocheted hats and hair accessories. Everything is fab for gifting, and while most items can’t be popped in the washing machine, they can be hand-washed and then hung to dry.
