I have to admit I did a little happy dance when I find out I was going to get a preview of something from the August 2014 collection of FabKids clothing. I did another little happy dance when I realized it was this funky cool dress that is completely on trend. Just another perk of being a FabMom Brand Ambassador.
Like so many other FabKids pieces, the Ikat Dress, features some nice details like a hot pink zipper on the back and darting in the bodice. I believe the pattern is based off of ikat, an Indonesian dyeing technique used to pattern textiles, and looks like abstract hearts. This “tribal” type look is right up my alley, as far as fashion goes, and my daughter asked to wear it the second she spotted it.
Paired with a pop a color, like these lime green FabKids Fab Soft Leggings, it is going to be a great look for fall and even into winter with some boots. The fabric is a little on the thick side so I think it will great for when the weather starts to cool down. Since my daughter is a little petite, I prefer the cuts that are more fitted on her but I think this style would be flattering on a variety of body shapes.
This dress was a size up on my daughter and a little large for her at this time but should be a better fit as the weather cools down. If you are looking to wear the dress sooner rather than later, I’d order the exact size of your little girl.
Check out all the outfits FabKids has to offer and your first outfit is just $15 plus free shipping! They have sales and specials throughout the year (in fact I just bought 3 dresses for $20 including shipping). I am personally looking forward to seeing the fall pants outfits for girls since my daughter has been enjoying the FabKids pants she already has. Don’t forget to check out their selection of shoes, too.

A little trivia for you! Do you know where the cash register was invented? I’ll give you a hint; it’s where the pop top can, carbonless copy paper, and the airplane where invented. The were all invented right here in Dayton, Ohio! The Riverscape area in downtown Dayton has some fun sculptures commemorating some of them like this cash register and a six pack of pop top cans. Turns out Dayton has had more inventions per capita than any city in the United States.
