Trudy & Teddy Dress Up Party

Ayra had her first fashion show at Trudy & Teddy tea party last weekend! It was a private event, held at Parkson Alamanda, and it was heaps of fun! There were afternoon tea cocktail, clay art workshop, as well as caricature service.

The main highlight of this event was the dress up contest. Parents can choose their favorite apparels with matching accessories and shoes for their little models at Trudy & Teddy counter worth RM300. There were a lot of cute dresses and skirts and I was having a hard time choosing! There are basic wear, special occasion outfits, everyday wear and of course accessories.

At first I was thinking to have both my girls participate in the contest but the total outfits for both of them exceeded RM300. It's either both of them participate with no shoes OR only one of them participate. Mana boleh model without shoes kan, so I let kakak to be the model!

Everyone was busy choosing outfits

We were given about 30 minutes to choose the outfits and dress up our little ones so everyone was kelam kabut. It was madness! If you must know, I usually spend hours belek-belek all the clothes and shoes first to see which one matches before deciding which ones to get. 30 minutes seemed not enough!

But I managed to find the ones I like at the very last minute:
a white blouse, a plaid skirt, black tights, a hat and a pair of cap-toe shoes

All dressed up and ready to go!

All of the participants must parade according to the route given that ended on a mini stage for them to strike a pose for the camera. Of course parents can lead or carry their kids especially if their model is a baby. So here we go!

Ceera and her baby Keisha, were contestants number 2

Our turn is next!

I was worried that Ayra would refuse to parade in front of a crowd because she is usually VERY shy (just like moi ;p) and just wants to be held sambil tutup muka. But thank God she did not! She paraded hand in hand with me and when people clapped, she clapped her hands as well. I bet because there were other kids as well; kalau tak, jangan harap!

There was a mini fashion show too, to showcase Trudy & Teddy's collection. Their clothing line is inspired by classic European style with a twist of modernity yet simple and comfy in lots of subtle colors like ivory, white, brown, khaki, pink, grey and black. I noticed all of their apparels are made of cotton. They are high quality cotton fabrics from Japan with superior workmanship like cotton mini twill with satin finishing, fully combed cotton dobby, etc so they are no doubt comfortable for babies.

And then it was time to announce the winner. The judging were based on 30% parade skills and 70% on overall image.

The "Little Best Dresser" goes to....


I knew he would win - he was the only contestant who paraded on his own. Such a cute little fella! He won a prize worth RM500 (RM300 worth of Trudy & Teddy products and RM200 cash). His parents must be so proud of him!

I also had the chance to meet the designer of Trudy & Teddy!

It was such a fun event, we all had a good time.
And you know what's the best part?


I have been eyeing on this plaid skirt and the shoes especially!
(the shoes remind me of Chanel cap-toe ballet flats, except without the straps)
