When it comes to dressing Georgie every new season, I tend to rely on high street stores like Zara and Mango. Both stores stock basics that I like and that Georgie can usually wear for more than just a few months. But I can’t say I am fond of the lack of originality, which means that I am always on the hunt for something different, softer, funkier and cooler. Quality, of course, is my top priority. His clothes need to be able to withstand constant laundry washing and everyday use. All these requirements seem to be fulfilled by a new shop I have sourced out. The Boyz & Girlz Boutique in Engomi, Nicosia is an absolute gem and seeing as I am totally obsessed with my new findings, the lovely owner, Aliki, has allowed me to share some photos.
At the boutique you can find brand names such as Shampoodle, a line of comfortable everyday clothes with the added bonus of being made from organic cotton, which is perfect for my little dude and his sudden bursts of eczema. Having some sort of experience with clothes made from organic cotton and hefty price tags that go with, I am happy to report that this is not the case with Shampoodle. Boyz & Girlz also carry Ferrari Junior Collection, Oh Baby London and Natural World Eco Friendly amongst other brands. Along with Shampoodle, the Chalkboard Tees by Class Attire are another favourite of mine. I think this would make an excellent Christmas gift although you should probably hurry as Aliki has informed me that stock is low. Boyz & Girlz boutique carries sizes for kids aged 0 to 14 and also the Linea Mamma Baby product line that includes shampoos, bath soaps, shower gels, creams and oils, all free from harmful chemicals.
