So as a few people have requested more fashion posts / advice I have decided to first make a post where I list all of my favourite stores and boutiques for Kimaarah’s clothes and accessories. This will be updated regularly as & when I discover any new boutiques! Generally I am quite loyal to just a few shops & Instagram boutiques and have built up a list of favourites over the years!
Please note I have no affiliation with any of the shops / brands listed unless otherwise specified!
1. Little Ladies Boutique

If you have seen any of Kimaarah’s WOW dresses or custom made Sonata’s these will have come from Little Ladies, this is the boutique I will always recommend first to anyone. They are based in Spain and run by the lovely Sam from the UK who is always there to help me design a one off show-stopping dress for whatever occasion. These are probably the priciest dresses I buy but they are worth their weight in gold and always hold their value if I want to re-sell. I always buy these on a payment plan paying around 20% deposit and then the rest over 6-8 weeks, as a single mum this is a lifesaver and means Kimaarah gets beautiful dresses but mummy doesn’t go broke! It’s a win-win. They also do beautiful personalised bags and accessories.
2. Made By Jessica
The sister of Little Ladies Boutique, who makes all of our custom matching bows and personalised rosettes to match our Sonata and Spanish dresses. These matches are on point! You will not find any better.
3. Tallulah Frills
Based in Cleckheaton, UK, all of these outfits are lovingly handmade to the highest quality and are so different to anything else you will find. These are the perfect girly girl dresses & sets for your little one! Because they are handmade the order slots can be like gold dust so make sure you follow and watch closely!
4. Little Lovelies By Jo
Another one of my favourite bow-tiques, just because of the choice of colours and prints for bows there is literally one for every outfit! You choose the size and colour and it’s handmade by Jo herself. My favourites are the medium pinch bows which I order when I want a plain bow for Kimaarah to wear for nursery or everyday.
5. Dolce Petit & Miranda
These are my other go-to Spanish brands for Kimaarah as they do the prettiest girliest dresses. I mainly shop from the following boutiques as they offer the widest choice and also offer payment plans
Dainty Delilah – http://www.daintydelilah.co.uk
Sienna’s – http://www.siennasbabyboutique.com
Little Spanish Baby Boutique – http://www.littlespanishbabyboutique.co.uk
5. Childsplay Clothing

Childsplay is a bit of an institution in Essex and if I’m honest I would have a whole wardrobe of designer clothes for Kimaarah because I’m just a bit extra like that. The best thing is their sales because you can pick up some real bargains like 30% / 50% / even 70% off some brands. I picked up a beautiful pink Le Chic coat in the Christmas sales reduced from £98 to £49 for example. I’m a bit of a bargain hunter and try not to pay full price for things if I can help it!
