School Fashion for Boys & Girls by The Dragon and The Rabbit {Review} #review #backtoschool #thedragonandtherabbit

Thank you to The Dragon and The Rabbit for providing us with an adorable dress, in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.
 
Back to school shopping is always something I enjoy. New clothes, new supplies, new shoes, it makes heading back to school easier to handle when you are decked out in new gear. I have always liked my kids to be dressed nicely, and while our school has uniforms, we do get casual days at least once a month. B has his own opinion on his looks now, all sports related with tall socks and cool shoes, which I am fine with. The girls still like dresses and skirts and cute tops, so we have a closet full of cuteness.
 
One of the easiest ways for me to shop, especially with a crazy two year old, is online shops and boutiques. This gives my kids something to look forward to in the mail, we don't have to go to a store and deal with crowds, and they will have a more unique style. It is so fun to find new stores and then share our finds with our friends, just like we have with The Dragon and The Rabbit.
 
“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire” - Aristotle.
 
Founded in 2013, The Dragon and The Rabbit offers a line of versatile and chic clothing for boys and girls. Creator, Anjana, a mother of two and having worked in the fashion industry for 17 years, was inspired to design practical, easy to care for, stylish, age appropriate children's clothing. Based in New York, The Dragon and The Rabbit was named for her children, her daughter was born in the year of The Dragon and her son was born in the year of The Rabbit. They focus on a blend of classic and modern styles with clean looks that are colorful, fun, and comfortable for sizes 2T-6T.
 
The Dragon and The Rabbit also has a strong desire to give back to the community whenever possible. They are currently teamed up with the International Children’s Heart Foundation (www.babyheart.org) and share a portion of their earnings with this organization.
 
We were so happy to hear that The Dragon and The Rabbit was interested in partnering with us. They had me select an outfit of my choice and they would ship it right to us. Can I just say that S and I had a difficult time selecting our favorites because so much of it was just absolutely sweet and perfect. We finally got it down to our favorites and sent it off directly to Anjana. I love seeing companies that the owner/founder/creator works directly with us, it just makes our partnership that much more special.
 
Here were our top choices

Retails for $50
Retails for $64
Retails for $23
 
Our The Dragon and The Rabbit package has arrived!
S can't wait to see what she got, she has already planned to wear it to school, whatever it is.
 
"Look, paper!"
A sweetly wrapped gift for S to open, she can hardly contain herself.
The Dragon and The Rabbit takes the extra time to tissue paper wrap their products and seal with a cute logo sticker. The logo is great, with the word Dragon made into an actual dragon with a pointy tail and Rabbit having tall ears.
On to more opening...
"It's the dress!"
Safely packaged and sealed inside a plastic bag, again clearly labeled with the logo.
I just love the uniqueness of their logo, they have taken so much extra time to make their company stand out.
The dress we chose came with a garment tag attached with string to the clothing tag. I like not having the plastic piece stuck through the actual clothing, which leaves a tiny hole. The string can easily be cut right off the tag and leaves no mark.
We were sent the Lace Yoke Dress. It retails for $64 and comes in sizes 2T-6T, here is a helpful sizing chart from The Dragon and The Rabbit:

We went with the 6T and it is a bit big, but now we will just have longer time to wear it.
 The Lace Yoke Dress is a beautiful ivory color and S looks very elegant yet fashionable. I love that this dress is made of 100% natural cotton, making it very soft and comfortable too. Little girls should be able to look like little girls and not have to wear flashy, sparkly clothing all the time, this dress is perfect for that. I can't wait for her to pair it with her brown cowgirl boots and some curls in her hair. It is also machine washable, a plus for a little girl in Kindergarten who loves art.

The quality of the clothing from The Dragon and The Rabbit is immediately noticeable and much appreciated. They offer adorable options for both girls and boys that are unique, fashionable, but more importantly appropriate for their ages. I am so happy to have The Dragon and The Rabbit and look forward to seeing their Fall items.
