While I have been gifted this item for review purposes, all opinions expressed are my own.
Ramadan is fast approaching & it is one of the most important events of the calendar! A time for family, reflection & patience. While people are preparing for the holy festival by fasting & giving in charity, usually the Eid outfits are not really thought about until midway through the month of Ramadan.

Me on the other hand, I like to be prepared, especially when it comes to what the kids will be wearing on Eid! A common practice for Muslims is to buy new clothes for Eid, as it is a sunnah, or (traditional practice) of the Prophet Mohammed (SAWS) to wear your best items of clothing, or preferably something new on Eid.
It kinda reminds me of when I was a kid & we would all parade around on the street Christmas Morning in our new stuff comparing with our friends what clothing & shoes we had gotten as gifts.
As I like to be prepared, I will usually be looking around for the perfect dress for my daughter at least a month or so before Ramadan begins!
The dress has to be full on princess mode – occasional wear. My daughter is a Diva & knows what she likes, so gone are the days of me going to Monsoon or Chloe & picking out a dress I adore. Because, Miss Sassy Pants has to make sure she is in charge! especially when it comes to her clothing!
So imagine my delight when I was able to collaborate with David Charles Childrenswear & review their new Ramadan/ Eid 2019 Collection!
I must say I was so excited because the style of the clothing fits in exactly to what I look for in an Eid outfit. Luxurious, effortless & simply stunning!
I know it isn’t befitting to show off, but on Eid you can go that extra mile & make it a really special occasion with a beautiful outfit.
David Charles is a luxury children’s wear brand with stores in Moscow, Shanghai & even a boutique in our very own Harrods right here in London! Their sizes start from 2yrs up to 16yrs & the collections boast a wide array of sophisticated outfits to suit any special occasion.
Having a sassy 7yr old, I decided to let her choose her outfit & she decided to go for the beautiful Pastel Blue & Gold Floral Dress (the girl has style) 😉 Our package arrived the next day & was wrapped beautifully. She was so excited to rip it open, it was a miracle I actually managed to hold her off while I grabbed the phone to record!

Get the princess look
The dress was just as beautiful as it looked on the website! In pure Cinderella style, it boasted balloon hem sleeves & golden artisan embroidery with Luxe tulle layers, giving the dress a true ballgown silhouette, just the thing for little girls.
The embroidered bow at the back was actually the best bit about this dress, it conceals the zip fastening – pretty smart! I had fears that it might be a bit flimsy or rip easily, but I was impressed at how well made this item was. You can see great care & detail has gone into the design & workmanship of this dress & the fabric is of high quality.
My daughter is 7 but I ordered an 8yr old size as I like her things to fit for a while, it would be a shame to only get one wear out of this beautiful dress, I plan to parade it at a few weddings this summer insha’Allah.
The website has a sizing guide to help you in your decision making when it comes choosing your desired size, but I would recommend going a size up.
I’m going to be honest, the dress is a bit out of my price range,
£215 Originally £329 but these are high quality, Luxury Couture occasion dresses that you will most certainly use more than once!
They do sometimes have sales & good offers on the website so keep an eye out for those! Shipping is worldwide & next day plus you get gifted a David Charles Childrenswear pen that also pairs as a torch! 😉
If you’re going for a really magical Eid this year, or you have a special occasion coming up, make sure you treat your princess to one of these dress, you won’t regret it!
What do you think of the dress my daughter decided on? Would you have chosen something different? Do you have a special occasion coming up soon that these would be perfect for? Let me know in the comments below & don’t forget to share!!
