If you’ve been a reader of our blog for a while, you know that we’ve had the pleasure of working with Matilda Jane on two previous occasions to feature reviews of their beautiful boutique clothing line for girls and teens. We couldn’t be happier to be reviewing another gorgeous outfit from our friends at Matilda Jane Clothing – this time from their Wonderful Parade collection!
Lets start with a little recap of what makes Matilda Jane special!
Matilda Jane Clothing was started in 2005 by designer Denise DeMarchis, and since its inception, the line has gained a cult following. The vision behind the clothing line is to offer high quality, unique pieces, that bring whimsy and youthfulness to a girls wardrobe. Matilda Jane clothes are full of bright colors, fun patterns, playful ruffles and detailed embellishments.
Matilda Jane is a little different because in order to offer optimum customer service, they present their lines through “Trunk Keepers” – Matilda Jane experts who present their clothing line in home parties throughout the country. It’s a great opportunity to see the cuts, colors and fabrics up close to choose your favorite pieces.
Finally, one last little thing I have to mention, is that I LOVE that Matilda Jane clothes are “mix and match” from each line – with the colors all complimenting one another so that the pieces are all interchangeable. It makes it so easy to pair things together and give our girlies choices when getting dressed in the morning!
So – on to our review and some pictures from our little photo session!
I can’t say enough good things about these gorgeous clothes. After being introduced to the line with the opportunity to review them, I have since become a loyal customer myself. Julie’s collection continues to expand and I can honestly say we receive more compliments from strangers when wearing our “MJ’s” than anything else.
The Love Bug Knot Top combines adorably sweet prints (like summer strawberries) and happy colors, with soft details like the ruffle edge shoulder strap and the little lace ruffle trim along the skirt. The straps pull through the front of the top and are knotted to create a secure (but flexible) sizing. All the interesting patterns are brought together with the ribbons and sash for a finished look.
The Cloudy Puffer Tee is the perfect lightweight stretchy base shirt, but the the fun shape of the belled sleeve makes this really add personality to whatever you’re layering. The bell shaped wrist is actually two layers of fabric, so it doesn’t hang awkwardly but instead, fits perfectly to her wrist. As we’ve mentioned before, Julie has some sensory issues from time to time, and can get upset when things don’t hang “right.” She had absolutely no problem with this top, and the super soft fabric of this blouse really keeps her comfy. I especially loved the way it looked as she twirled in circles.
Our Sweetheart Ruffled Leggings were the perfect finish for an outfit full of sweetness. It doesn’t get much girlier, than pink heart print, but Matilda Jane somehow manages to bring cute to a new level with the soft ruffles along the ankle of these leggings. As always, super soft and stretchy, these leggings are definitely of a more premium quality than most may be used to. They match the strawberry print in the top perfectly, and would look great with so many of the pieces in the Matilda Jane Wonderful Parade collection.
I know I’m biased, but isn’t she just gorgeous? Julie is so full of spunk and personality that Matilda Jane clothes just look like they were made for her.
