*I was given samples of JoJo Maman Bebe in exchange for my review. My opinions are authentic and my own.
I’m a big fan of UK brands for the family, and I like them even more when they’re available in the U.S. The UK’s leading children and maternity brand JoJo Maman Bebe recently announced their launch for U.S. customers. Their classic British and French-inspired style can be found in a full range of children’s wear, maternity, nursing, toys, nursery products and furnishings. I had the opportunity to sample some of their girls’ clothing and was very pleased and impressed with the quality and detail.
Corduroy is a classic fabric for fall. Since the weather varies from warm to chilly, you can wear the dress on its own or with a shirt underneath. The plum color is one of my favorites for fall and the floral fabric popping out at the bottom is such a clever and pretty detail. This is great for school but would also make a perfect Thanksgiving dress too. Two thumbs up from Middle Sis!
Fair Isle has always been around, but it found its way on the fall/winter 2015 runways as a major trend. Middle Sis absolutely adored this dress and didn’t want to take it off, and that gave me more time to admire the button detail at the back. Fair Isle always reminds me of winter and the holidays, but the pattern and pastel colors of this dress make it wearable whenever the weather is right. And if it’s raining or snowing, it’s perfect with the patterned wellie boots. The wellies are sturdy but not stiff. They’re comfortable and light-weight– as far as boots go. They have an anti-sweat lining and have a 100% rubber outer layer and sole.
I love the feeling of thick cotton. You just know it’s high quality and is going to last as a hand-me-down. Add in a reversible print, and you’ve won me over! Even though I requested a size too big for Baby Sis, she still fit both the hoodie and jeans (more like jeggings) pretty well– I just had to roll the sleeves a bit. But both pieces were comfortable and super cute!
The price point for JoJo Maman Bebe is comparable to other European brands that are available in US markets, with cost ranging from $16 for socks/tights to $48 for dresses. Children’s sizes range from baby to 6 years, and they also have maternity, nursing, baby gear, nursery decor, gifts & toys, and some furniture. I can think of a few grandmothers who would love to do some shopping here for the holidays….
