GAP x Disney Dumbo

babyGAP Disney Baby Dumbo Collection

In between doing crazy, frenzied bursts of work (obviously my version of nesting, as I’ve mentioned!), I have been spending quite a bit of time browsing clothes online for Angelica. And in-store, if I’ve been out and about, but in truth I’ve not been getting around much – I need a wee every twenty seconds, so it’s much easier to stay at home and send my husband on food and shopping missions!

Anyway, one of my cute discoveries of the month: the Baby Dumbo collection at GAP. It’s absolutely exquisite. Though I do make it sound as though I discovered it myself: I didn’t. GAP very kindly sent me the dress shown in the pictures, but I went online to hunt down the rest of the line and it’s so sweet – gorgeous cartoon drawings, but also clever little touches like the circus tent skirt on the dress I’ve shown and elsewhere in the collection, a “ringmaster” style cropped jacket and elephant foot slip-on shoes.

It’s all fun but in a muted, understated sort of way. Take the one-piece below:

I’m in love. I’m not keen on many Disney collaborations, mainly because they tend to feature those irritating doe-eyed girls from Frozen*, but when brands draw upon archived sketches and original artwork for inspiration I think that it can work really well. This range has been brilliantly thought-out and I’m pleased to see that they’ve actually got quite good stock in most items – with limited edition collections it can be frustrating how quickly things sell out.

You can find the entire GAP x Disney Dumbo collection online here.

    I am currently 26 weeks pregnant ad the first thing my husband said to me when we found out was “there will be no Frozen played in this household!”

    What an ADORABLE collaboration! It helps that I love Dumbo (and the Baby of Mine song that his mum sings to him – *sob*). Thanks for the inspiration for upcoming baby shower presents! 🙂 x

    Oh my! I see a great resemblance to you mum in Angelica’s face in the second photo! That’s sweet.

    Oh I’ve got all of the boys bits on my wish list! Annoyingly the collaborations are never included in the massive discounts they do!!

    I really can´t be bothered with Frozen. The great thing with raising the kid tv-free (at least for the first 3 years) is that you don´t have to deal with that stuff. The downside is of course you need to keep them entertained otherwise.

    Don’t worry Ruth, it’s not just you, I can’t stand Frozen either! Trying to finding my 2-year-old daughter sneakers or pajamas or tee shirts NOT featuring Disney characters is a nightmare in the US (which has led to a very expensive MiniBoden addiction, but we better not even discuss that!)
