I really like the item and my daughter loves it! However - a few points. The seller notes that the item will be ready to ship in 2 to 3 days. Mine arrived nearly 2 months after I ordered it! I ordered it on December 19th - mid January I finally inquired where it was - it shipped out on January 20th and proceeded to get lost in the mail as the seller did not track it. She did send out a new dress on short notice, and threw in a super cute rainbow headband - which did arrive in time for my daughters Rainbow Valentine's party. The Sparkly Star on the front arrived in Pink vs. Blue as specified in description - I did not care, just think it is odd that the sellers goes out of her way to specify blue - better to say colors will vary. I would order from the seller again but request a realistic ship date and tracking.

Inspired by her three wild things ,award winning brand Wild Things was short listed by Junior Magazine as Best New Brand Emerging New talent 2013. Wild Things has proven popular with press and with a strong celebrity following has become a much covetable label of the moment.

Little ones love to wear the strong colours and simple imagery, and grown ups like the subtle retro influences and elements of childhood nostalgia. I’m influenced by the simplicity of Scandinavian design,60’s & 70’s styling, and random naïve elements and whimsical details which appeal to little ones.
A new range of exclusive printed dresses and play products are now avaialable adding to the core range of character dresses, dungarees and jackets.

All items designed,styled ,photographed,and either custom made or made in small quantities from our studio here in the heart of the Lancashire hills in England.

I pride myself on creating colourful contemporary clothes with a truly handmade feel,using detail and techniques which show true craftmanship,enlisting the support of two outstanding machinists during busy periods.

'I hope your little ones enjoy the dresses as much as I do creating them.'
