A Lovely Love Story

The world was so recent that many things lacked names, and in order to indicate them it was necessary to point. Every year during the month of March a family of ragged gypsies would set up their tents near the village, and with a great uproar of pipes and kettledrums they would display new inventions.

He went from house to house dragging two metal ingots and everybody was amazed to see pots, pans, tongs, and braziers tumble down from their places and beams creak from the desperation of nails and screws trying to emerge, and even objects that had been lost for a long time appeared from where they had been searched for most and went dragging along in turbulent confusion behind Melquiades magical irons.

Give up. A bit of lippy never hurt

Give up. A bit of lippy never hurt

What do you do when you have the most girliest of girls for a daughter? Well, when you finally realise you’re not going to win the war over her bringing out toys to use as stepping ladders to reach your makeup bag on the top shelf of a locked cupboard – and sometimes, well maybe many a time, you will just leave the bag out on the dressing table and the inevitable will happen. Eventually you give up.

Vee is 4 and in love with makeup. Nearly all little girls have been there. You are either the muddled kind who who tries and fails at ‘Coco the Clown look, then leaves a messy trial to quickly show Mum. Or you actually, even at 3 years old, you’re naturally gifted and don’t look half bad. Below is Vee. First thing in the morning.

Give up. A bit of lippy never hurt

Most times it’s better to indulge their obsessions. We avoid the yelps, cries and tantrums. But more importantly it’s usually a tale tell sign of what they’ll be when they grow up. Vee will probably be a full on made up face daily, perfumed, high heeled young lady. She loves dresses and pretty shoes, perfume and everything else to goes with it. Whilst, there are still, albeit an exceedingly small number of us, for whom a good pair of black stilettos to fit all dress styles will do.

Letting kids wear a little bit of lipstick or nail varnish, or perhaps their spiderman outfits to the shops is all about allowing them to learn to love being themselves. Supposedly the hope is your child turns out to be someone confident in who they are, creative in their outlook on life. Creative, in that they think outside the box quite simply. All you as a parent needs to do is provide gentle guidance and support.

May all our children grow up to be something more wonderful than we could have imagined.

KEEP UP YOUR A-GAME WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE TUMBLES DOWN

7 full months of slogging it out and still hoping and wishing for the dream to materialise can take it’s toll. You try your level best at everything and things don’t happen as fast as you imagined. And, if you let it, times like this can make you want to give up. But what’s the point in that. What’s the point of going halfway and then starting something else from the beginning. You’ve got to see it through to the hopefully sweet end. So you can say, I have no regrets.

7 months in business

VeeandJade is coming to the end of its 7 month in online business, providing the FASHION THEY WANT™. It actually makes me smile as I type our tagline in that last statement. The Fashion they Want™. The very reason we are in business. To children’s clothes to those really stylish, “have their own minds” children. I smile, broadly, again. Having a purpose and a vision makes it all worth it. And I really hope that we can do what we set out to achieve. 🙂

Tweet This: Purpose. Vision. Stick. to. the. Plan!

Even though sales have not taken off as we would have liked, there have been several wins. The VeeandJade Love Fridays Giveaway, is coming up trumps. So exciting to see people liking and commenting on posts to win some children’s clothes. Even more exciting when we get to package the prize up and send it off to the lucky winner. Our hope is of course that the package is what the recipient really wanted 🙂 Loads of you are starting to like us on Twitter. And, Facebook has been amazing. We’re absolutely loving it. We’ve managed to connect with parents of some truly stylish boys and girls. It’s can be a challenge standing out as a new business with fierce competition where there’s so much good clothing out there but we believe there’s always possibilities we can all achieve. We’ve learnt time and time over, each time you fal there’s  only one thing to do. Pick yourself up and learn from the mistake. But never give up.

As our business grows, our dream is to stock the most stylish of designs from the most “out there” designers. We can’t wait! We already exclusive designs from Boboli. Bóboli_080BCN-(2)We’ve been looking at Oilily closely. We love this brand and then there are some beautiful boutique designers such as Patachou, Lilly + Sid, Miller and Hucklebones. What a honour it would be to be eventually stock these brands and others like them.

The children that buy from VeenadJade.com love fashion.

Break a fashion rule

It’s an expression of who they are. They are discovering the people they will be. They will be people who stand out in life.

Listen guys we need you. So if there are any brands that you want us to take a look at, especially the really trendy styles your children love,  let us know in the comments. And say a little prayer for us too.

Why we love Kickers

 

You either love them or hate them. We’ve found Vee and Jade hate them for the most part and then start loving them or maybe have just come to terms with the fact they haven’t got an option. Either way we have made them a staple part of their uniform. simply because they look and last more than a couple of months. Plain black ones for Jade who wears a school uniform. And two pairs of flowery pretty white Kickers for Vee.

When was the first time you started wearing Kickers ♥ ♥

6 Trendy Basics for nursery kids

6 TRENDY BASICS FOR NURSERY KIDS

5 Trendy Basics for nursery kids

Kids are much more style conscious nowadays. They have their own style and are not afraid to look unique even at a young age. The younger generation are smart and they raise the standard when deciding how they dress. They have positive self images and want the clothes to match, even if it’s just to go to nursery.

A nursery kids trendy basics guide

Here’s what they’ll need

      A couple of pairs of skinny jeans for girls or slim fitting ones for boys. Jeans not only stand up to rough play you can trust your child will look presentable. Added bonus, skinny jeans are still in.
      A statement t-shirt. Go beyond the usual cartoon characters. Think quirky quotes and images, bright colours and sewn on accessories like flowers and buttons.
      Jumpers are a must for the colder days. Spend a bit of money on one or two good quality ones. They’l last longer and your kids will look good wearing them. They spend a lot of time at school so you’ll get your money’s worth too.
      A few plain t-shirts. These will go with everything but the great thing is, since they are plain they won’t look so worn after a few washes
      Don’t forget her tutu. Reserve at least one of your girl’s favourite tutus for wearing to nursery. Not only will she enjoy showing off, she’ll feel extra special on her tutu wearing days
      And finally a good jacket. Here you can take your pick. Parkas, puffas, macs, leathers and bomber jackets are all popular styles. But rather than go for a style that you like, go for one that they’ll look swanky in too.
