  1. After reading this, and seeing how pretty Izzy looked, I ordered the very same top for my step daughter- I’m hoping it arrives in time for Christmas. As always Frankie, an enjoyable read x

    • Oh that’s wonderful Andrea. I’m loving everything from the children’s range at Joules {I had already bought Izzy a new frock before the PR company got in touch}. I hope you step-daughter approves! Merry Christmas!
