Styled by Electra - Christmas fashion specials

There was a time, not so long ago, when I could confidently buy clothes for my daughters. That time has long gone.

Nowadays they say things like "Mum, you don't know anything about fashion" and to be fair they do have a point. So when I asked Tall Daughter to put together a list of things she'd like for her birthday (next week) and/or Christmas I was slightly flummoxed. On her list she had written 'nice clothes'.

Nice clothes? I'm pretty sure my idea of nice clothes is not the same as hers, so I really didn't know where to start.

Fortunately, help is at hand with a series of fashion tutorials by Electra Formosa of Disney Channel's 'Get the Look' fame. The 3 minute videos show Electra styling the M&S Christmas Kidswear range and showing tweens how to stay on-trend (and helping adults to shop for that age range too!)

They're all available to view on Electra's Youtube channel 'Electra Loves' including this one which is all bows. Tall Daughter also happens to be a big fan of Electra, so I will be watching and taking notes before I go shopping!
