The photos of the Flip Flop Hoody makes it look a little bit pale and wishy washy so when it arrived I was pleased to see that it was actually a lot brighter than the brochure depicts. The pale pink side makes it a great top for either the Fancy Pants Roll Ups or the Truly Scrumptious Dress. The minty side matches the Flip Flop T-shirt so looks great with that. The fact that so much of the collection mixes and matches is ideal as we recently went away and managed to take a few items which saw us through traipsing around museums, going out for dinner and playing in the park with just a few clothes and a multi purpose, goes with everything hoody! As its reversible its quite thick and will easily be wearable through to the autumn so I’m expecting a lot of wear from it.

The place just hasn’t been the same. Yes the clothes have got designed, yes customer orders have gone out, yes the website still worked etc. But, really, we NEED her!
So, did everyone have a nice Easter?
Easter egg hunts for those with Children. Long lie-ins for those without!
Back to work here at Frugi towers this week, and getting the backlog of orders out to our lovely customers.
(Mark, our warehouse manager, took a ‘duvet day’ on Tuesday, and had a day off booked on Wednesday, so he’s been off for yonks!)
OK if you want to see
1 – Kurt in a shirt, (notice that he didn’t wear a tie) talking very nervously about web 2.0. with his grey hair glinting in the sunlight.
2 – Henri, making a totally embarrassing spelling mistake whilst typing.
3 – Lucy with her pre-cut hair do fringe thing going on, and her buttons undone.
Then you may wish to cick HERE
P.S. Has the Camera adulation gone to Kurt’s head?
We were so excited when these gorgeous trousers arrived, but we had to await the warmer weather! We’ve finally had a few days of sunshine and thus the trousers have been put to good use! I’m pretty sure my daughters will test clothing in the good ole fashioned way! We’ve been rolling down grassy verges, splashing rather vehemently in muddy puddles and wiping sticky raspberry stained fingers down them, and thus far they’ve come up well! I wash my clothes at 30, predominantly with soap nuts and my main praise for Frugi is the clothes clean well! I have found however that the fabric of these trousers seems a little stiffer once washed, perhaps it’s the hard water here in Norfolk? Or perhaps it’s just the way they are made, but they definitely resemble cardboard after a morning on the line! Still, within minutes of being on and rolled around in they are soft and ready.
I love the colours, they receive many compliments and are incredibly twee. My daughter likes them too and points at the spots, proclaiming loudly “Look, POTS!!” However neither of us can really work out what we’re supposed to do with the ties! I came close to cutting them off because they just tie awkwardly, stick out when in the car seat and fall apart knot wise when walking. They are definitely the least loved thing about these otherwise adorable trousers. I don’t think they serve a particular purpose either? I was definitely befuddled. I also don’t think they’d work well (the knots / extra fabric) with smaller children, Mirabelle is old enough now not to pull and chew on things but that would have been entirely different a mere 6 months ago.
Overall they are a success, but there are definitely a few small things that would put me off buying them again.

Let’s be honest – when you can pop down to the high street and grab a fistful of bibs for a few quid, Frugi’s seem quite expensive – after all, they’re just there to catch the stains you don’t want on your little one’s nice clothes, right? Exactly, I agree. If you want to protect your beautiful Frugi gear, you need these bibs.
I’ll get the aesthetic stuff out of the way – yes, the bibs are adorable; of course, the little images are cute. More importantly though, these bibs are super practical. Big, generous fronts actually do the job of protecting clothing. They’re cut all in one piece and close with a single popper meaning no wrangling ties and no velcro to stick to everything else in the wash, but also no pulling the whole thing over the head. They are made of Frugi’s beautiful cottons – smooth on the front, with terry on the back, making them much more absorbent than other bibs we’ve tried, so you actually only have to take the bib off, not change their whole outfit, when they get a little over-enthusiastic about that drink you gave them.
There are only two downsides to these bibs. The first is that the popper closure means that the sizing is not adjustable and they might be a bit loose on really small babes. The second is that once you get one set, you won’t want bibs from anywhere else… I love the Berry Nice ones so much, I went back to get the Whatever the Weather set and discovered they had sold out. I have been stalking the website, hoping that they will reappear and was rather pleased when I discovered they had more on the way. Quick – get them while you can (I’ve already ordered mine).
