In between doing crazy, frenzied bursts of work (obviously my version of nesting, as I’ve mentioned!), I have been spending quite a bit of time browsing clothes online for Angelica. And in-store, if I’ve been out and about, but in truth I’ve not been getting around much – I need a wee every twenty seconds, so it’s much easier to stay at home and send my husband on food and shopping missions!
Anyway, one of my cute discoveries of the month: the Baby Dumbo collection at GAP. It’s absolutely exquisite. Though I do make it sound as though I discovered it myself: I didn’t. GAP very kindly sent me the dress shown in the pictures, but I went online to hunt down the rest of the line and it’s so sweet – gorgeous cartoon drawings, but also clever little touches like the circus tent skirt on the dress I’ve shown and elsewhere in the collection, a “ringmaster” style cropped jacket and elephant foot slip-on shoes.
It’s all fun but in a muted, understated sort of way. Take the one-piece below:
I’m in love. I’m not keen on many Disney collaborations, mainly because they tend to feature those irritating doe-eyed girls from Frozen*, but when brands draw upon archived sketches and original artwork for inspiration I think that it can work really well. This range has been brilliantly thought-out and I’m pleased to see that they’ve actually got quite good stock in most items – with limited edition collections it can be frustrating how quickly things sell out.
You can find the entire GAP x Disney Dumbo collection online here.
*I know that Frozen is ridiculously popular, and that I must be the only person who can’t stand it, so do forgive me. I bow down to general consensus!
