Girls’ Dresses

Butterfly Beauties

Some might argue that I overdo the butterflies. Yes, my child’s nickname is The Bug. And yes, butterflies are usually my go-to decoration for her room, her backpack, her clothes. Ladybugs too. But mostly butterflies. What can I say? There are so many opportunities for cute butterfly decorations, I can’t help myself.

My little girl doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, she usually requests that I read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” every night. I’m thinking it’s because of the last page (spoiler: the caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly).

Her fascination with butterflies is why I’m so excited for the springtime. And why I was so excited to see this new sleeveless dress from Ketiketa. It adds just the perfect little flutter of feminine without the swarm that some overdone butterfly designs can create.

The subtle butterfly prints (only a few sprinkled here and there) almost create the illusion that these gentle creatures have landed on the dress, creating a sweet scene. The warm color and the lovely contrasting stitches across the neck and sleeves add a special touch.

As the warmer weather approaches and sundresses become the norm not the exception, my daughter and I are ready for an outdoor adventure. Butterfly net, check. Sunhats, check. We have everything we need. Now we just need the butterflies.

Going Green

Just look out the window. I don’t know what you see, but I still see gray. Winter is sticking around a bit longer than I would have liked. Rain, sleet, snow, puddles—there’s nothing out there yet even resembling spring. I want green, but the only green thing I see outside are a few pine trees and the new car across the street.

So when I saw this 100% cotton poplin sundress by Belgian designer Max & Lola, I almost began to question the groundhog’s prediction from a few weeks ago. Spring is finally here, I rejoiced. This sweet little outfit made me long for the sunnier seasons. The days when I can kick off my shoes, run through the grass and pick glorious flowers that grow wild in the fields. Actually I don’t even need to frolic. I just want to stop having to go outside wearing a coat, hat and gloves.

With its bright grass green shade, this sleeveless dress is a splash of fresh loveliness. The epitome of springtime happiness. And just like little rays of sunshine, the zipper and stitches offer a surprising pop of bright orange detail.

And as if it was having even more fun than the little girl wearing it, this dress swings and spins and twirls with careless abandon. Now that’s a great way to put a little spring in her step.

I Love My Job!

dress

I guess the reason I love my job here at Estella so much is that I love to shop. And, finding great clothes for you and yours is just another form of shopping. Today I’ve got a great excuse for you to shop: our little girls dresses are on sale.

Little girls and dresses are just the perfect combination. And, I love it when I find dresses that actually look like dresses for little girls, rather than downsized women’s clothes. For that reason, I love the line of little girl and baby girl dresses we’ve assembled at Estella. Though we have a wide range of dress styles for little girls, they all look like they belong on a little girl. And I think your little girls will like them, too. Because of course, there comes that time when you can’t pick out her clothes anymore, because she’s become such a fashion maven in her own right, like Lily, one of my favorites little mavens at Mommy Tracked.

This sale is particularly exciting because we have dresses that your little ones can wear right now, as well as beautiful styles for the spring. And, the prices are fabulous – you can buy one of each!

Now that the temperatures are especially cold, it’s a great time to pair some of those winter dresses with warm tights or leggings. http://www.estella-nyc.com/babygirlsale-fallwinterclothes.html

But, when spring rolls around, your little princess can sport bare legs and cute sandals with all the spring styles. Easter comes the first weekend in April this year, and if you shop right now, you can be ready way ahead of time, and avoid the price increases that will undoubtedly happen once the weather warms.

I love finding designer baby clothes, and I love bringing you high quality outfits. But, there’s no question that one of the things I love most is seeing our beautiful little girls’ dresses on your beautiful little girls. And, when I can help you find them at great prices, it’s all the better!

We have lovely little dresses for girls, which of course you can put on your little ones right away, you just have to layer until the weather warms up.

Spring has Sprung with Kit+Lili’s New Spring Arrivals!

Ok, so maybe the title is a little premature, or maybe it’s the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had over the weekend that inspired it – whatever the case, we sure do hope that Spring is upon us because we need an excuse to wear this gorgeous scoop-neck floral girls dress by Kit+Lili. The sleeveless dress is perfect for layering; wear with a wool knit cardigan for breezy days or over an Estella t-shirt for a little more coverage. The 100% cotton fabric is perfect for balmier days (note the swoon-worthy floral print!)

If florals aren’t your cup of tea, no need to fret, this beautiful pink eyelet girls dress by Kit+Lili offers a delicate and girly spin with a cotton eyelet fabric. Adjustable spaghetti tie straps and a peek-a-boo eyelet lace trim along the hem sweeten the deal.

View all of the new Spring Kit+Lili Arrivals here.
