Belle has been on the case for me again this week, putting together one of her little videos, this time for a kids’ clothes website called Melijoe.com. Belle’s technological abilities always impress me – she literally went into the garden on her own with her phone, came back in, disappeared upstairs for about ten minutes and then presented me with a 30 second video, set to music, with captions.
How did she even take the pictures on her own??
The girl is a genius.
Melijoe.com caters for children from birth up to 16 years old, which in itself is a draw for me – so many kids’ clothes websites only go up to 10 or 11 years old, and it can be hard to find clothes for Belle that are actually for children and yet stylish and durable at the same time. So often it feels like the choice is between cheap man-made fabrics with garish cartoon characters on or crop tops and leopard print, as though the average 12 year old is often to be found ‘in da club’ at weekends.
Belle was in heaven picking her items from Melijoe.com; there are literally thousands of things to choose from. I did my best to be patient, but confess there were moments when I wished their collection wasn’t quite as comprehensive, just so that she would get on and choose. In the end she went for a new pair of summer pyjamas, with shorts instead of long trousers, and an embroidered white dress and cardigan. I would have put money on the dress as Belle has a very girly side to her and loves a bit of voile. The dress is beautiful, and as Belle says in her video, the detail is stunning:
I was a little bit worried about sizing, as I’ve always thought that Belle was small for her age, but everything fits perfectly; Belle seems to have gone through a real spurt lately height wise, which is nice for her as she has always felt a bit uncomfortable being the smallest in class, but not so nice for me as I can no longer get away with squeezing her into her age 8-9 jeans and telling her they are intentionally cropped.
I’m sure you’re dying to see Belle’s video though, so without further ado, here it is! Isn’t she a clever clogs?
Belle was wearing:
Tommy Hilfiger cotton voile dress
3 Pommes short cotton knit cardigan
Tommy Hilfiger two piece cotton pyjamas
Leggings her own, for cartwheel purposes.
Belle was sent this items for the purposes of this review. All opinions are our own.

This is official proof – blogging is genetic! The video is wonderful x
Amazing video, what a talented and beautiful daughter you have! The detailing is so pretty in that photo, very sweet x
I love the video! What a star. Melijoe is great isn’t it – I bought a couple of things for G from there and the selection is huge! These bits look fab.
Love her video! I’m not sure I could make a video like that! Well, certainly couldn’t do the cartwheel, anyway!
That’s amazing! What a clever daughter you have!

HOw cool is that video! Belle obviously takes after her mum, great skills and style! x
Oh wow how cool is this video – really impressed – this would take me forever to do.
Love Melijoe as they have some amazing clothes for kids
I’ll have to have a look at their 3 year old options – Pip seems to have grown out of everything she owns :)
