Many, many years ago when I had a small kids fashion retail pop-up in a local leisure centre, there was a large fish tank next to it that was filled with lots of beautiful tropical fish. Amongst them, Clownfish AKA Nemo. All I heard ALL DAY LONG from little kids walking past was “Neeeeeeeemo mummayyyyyyy”. Now this was all very much pre having had kids for me – I had no clue what they were on about.
Oh how very much my life has now changed. And now, all these years later – Disney Pixar have finally created a sequel to Finding Nemo called Finding Dory which is released in the UK on the 29th July. Which if Nemo is anything to go by, will be a huge smash. Not least with our British summer pretty-much guaranteeing NO rain-free days – it’s somewhere to take them and keep them amused for a few hours eh? Here’s the trailer.
So inspired by this – I bring you my Top 10 Underwater inspired fashion as it goes without saying that we don’t ‘do’ official merchandise darlings. Let’s go..
