Outside The Box Clothes - review & GIVEAWAY by Bex

To celebrate my first column for Uckfield News today and with the launch of OTB Clothes' unisex shorts, I'm delighted to be running a giveaway with Outside The Box Clothes!  Priya was wearing her dress at the Uckfield Festival Big Day and we went back to Luxford park for a photo shoot to show off the clothes against the slightly roughened bright colours of the play equipment so you may have noticed it in my column today and now you have a chance to win one for your child!




A small business run by fellow local twin Mum, Holly Shaw, Outside The Box Clothes makes awesome unisex clothes.  Holly is passionate about children having equal access to clothing that they love.  Her dinosaur-mad twin girls inspired the first range featuring a bright array of colourful dinosaurs when she struggled to find dinosaur clothing for her girls.


Holly says "Outside The Box Clothes don't make clothes for girls and boys, we make clothes for children. We believe children should be free to choose what they like to wear and not be dictated to by stereotypical colour or gender barriers.  We support the Let Clothes Be Clothes campaign.
  
Inspired by our dinosaur mad twin girls our launching range is dinosaurs.  We have lots of ideas and future plans please keep an eye on us and keep thinking Outside the Box."


I love her look of determination here!

The brand currently only has one print available (and it's an awesome one!) but there are some gorgeous new designs coming soon, I've seen the plans!  They've also recently expanded their range to include unisex shorts and culottes so although I know Kalyan loves wearing his sister's dinosaur dress, he's now got a pair of shorts too.  It's early days for Holly's business but I can see it being a great success with a brilliant ethos and good quality, colourful clothing not to mention a superstar Mum of three at the helm.


Priya's had her dress for a while now and LOVES picking it out to wear often.  The new shorts are actually a little big for Kalyan so I will take them up and in a bit (and let them out again later so they last longer!)  We took them to the park last weekend for a photo shoot to help show off the fabulous clothes and they had a blast running around, climbing and swinging in them.


They are available in sizes 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6, made of 100% cotton and handmade in the UK.  I adore the rainbow coloured dinosaurs against the black background, they go with everything!  The dress is a lovely A-line style with button tabs at the top.  The shorts are long board shorts style which have an elasticated waist as do the longer culottes.  Both the dress and shorts can be seen modelled in the image below in size 2-3, the shorts are a bit big on my son so they hang down low.  Dresses are £20, shorts and culottes are £10.



Holly has very kindly offered Olive Dragonfly readers the chance to win one dress and one pair of shorts! Read on for details on how to enter!


We will be choosing two winners at random, one dinosaur dress and one pair of dinosaur shorts are up for grabs and the winners will be able to select which size/length.  All you have to do is comment below with your choice of dress or shorts.  Optional: for additional entries, head over to Olive Dragonfly on Instagram and/or Facebook for more details.  We want to spread the word of Holly's amazing new brand as she's all set to expand the range over the next few months so we'd love it if you'd like to tag any friends you think might want to enter and please share the posts.
