Shopping for fall and school can become an expensive undertaking, since you have to purchase back-to-school supplies, backpacks, electronics, clothing and many other things within short time frame. Weather usually turns quickly once September comes and if you live in colder climate, she may also need a winter coat or boots. I understand this since I’m also a parent and always dressed my daughter in boutique clothing.
I decided to write this short article, to give you some ideas about how to shop on a budget and not to go broke by mixing-and-matching several items to create a wardrobe for fall and winter this season. Many times, we base our buying decision on price and not on the functionality of item or it’s usefulness. I’m just a s guilty of this myself. So many times, I would go in the store and see something affordable and cute and I would buy it. Then I would come home and realize that I have absolutely nothing in my wardrobe that would look good with this. Which means that I would need to spend more money to make an outfit. I still make this mistake, but I’ve learned over the years, that it’s better to buy less and maybe at higher price than having full closet off mismatched things. So we would like to show you some of the items from our Fall 2018 Collection that would mix and match well and are absolute must haves.
This first grouping shows 4 items from Hannah Banana that all mix and match together, depending on the age and the look you are trying to achieve, this Sparkly Hannah Banana Tulle Skirt looks great with all other 3 pieces and makes 3 different outfits. let’s expand little more, let’s add another grouping and see what else can be added to expand the wardrobe.
Ok, so we add 2 more items, Autumn Cashmere Sweater w/Black Pleated Back and Ragdoll & Rockets Black Faux leather Pants. Both of these mix and match perfectly with all 4 items from previous grouping, especially with the skirt and leather jacket. The leather pants and not just your regular pants, they are super nice with soft suede on the inside and are perfect for winter.
Need more casual options for school ? No problem, let’s add a couple more. Let’s add Plaid Ragdoll & Rockets Shirt & Dropped Shoulder Winter Bloom Ruffle top, both of them are perfect with black faux leather pants
We could keep going and keep adding more, but I think you got our point. These 9 pieces will look great together and give unlimited outfit options, especially if you give it a little bit more thought and incorporate this into her existing closet. Stay tuned, we’ll be back with another post about mixing and matching!
Oh, and you are wondering why we added that Cosmic Cutie Dress by Hannah Banana on top of this blog? This just an overall great party dress and will look fabulous with black leather jacket, especially in tween sizes

A line of childrenswear named after a corduroy ape has to put some seriously cute clothes out into the world. Appaman far from disappoints in making good on this promise. During his time growing up in Norway, company founder and designer Harald Husum shared many adventures with a precocious plush primate. Today, his whimsical and well-made Appaman clothing for kids recalls those stories within the context of contemporary American pop culture.
Make her day by making it metallic with the Appaman Pewter Color Kelsey Dress.
And really — who knew a simian stuffy could be so hip? One thing Appaman proves again and again is that just because clothing is cool doesn’t mean it has to be fussy. Appaman is known for its relaxed yet urban vibe. There’s a reason why many of Hollywood’s most adorable up-and-comers, including Room star Jacob Tremblay, Black-ish actor Miles Brown, and Girl Meets World cutie August Maturo, are spotted out and about in Appaman threads. Haute hordes of A-list offspring are also getting in on the Appaman action, such as Sasha and Samuel of the Naomi Watts/Liev Schreiber brood.
Go full-on formal or mix things up with the versatile Appaman Black Boys Velvet Blazer Jacket.
But even tiny trendsetters who aren’t yet gracing the pages of US Weekly can step into next season in style thanks to Appaman’s extraordinary fall collection. Where else can you find so many petite pieces which uniquely embody the spirit of feel-good, fashion-forward fun? In fact, one phrase comes to mind above all else when we think of Appaman girls coats, Appaman dresses, Appaman boys suits, Appaman sweaters, and everything else Appaman: Carefree chic. It’s what makes Appaman so, well, Appaman.
The Appaman Blue Hooded Down Boys Coat Parka proves that down doesn’t have to be dowdy.
When it comes to original outerwear this fall, Appaman serves up a winning blend of form and function with the likes of the Appaman Nicki Furry Girls Bomber Jacket and the Appaman Blue Hooded Down Boys Coat Parka — both of which will take kiddos from playground to party without skipping a beat. These picks, along with plenty of other Appaman winter coats and jackets in the season’s hottest hues, will keep all your favorite pint-sized people both cool and warm at the same time thanks to cozy down and awesome design details, like removable fur hoods.
Appaman does luxe just as well as it does laid-back with lots of fetching formal kids clothing in the mix, too, including the elegantly edgy Appaman Black Boys Velvet Blazer Jacket and the Appaman Pewter Color Kelsey Dress — a perfect fit for metallics-loving miniature mavens.
The classic bomber jacket gets a refreshing reboot with the Appaman Nicki Furry Girls Bomber Jacket.
From its dreamy Scandinavian roots to its downtown Brooklyn present, Appaman makes one-of-a-kind clothing for one-of-a-kind kids. If you’re looking for standout style staples this fall, look no further than Appaman’s Fall 2016 collection – available now for pre-order at Little Fashions Boutique.

Fashionistas and food-lovers don’t always have lot in common, so who would expect fashion designers to take styling advise from the culinary arts? And that’s exactly what they are doing for fall 2015. This season’s attempt at print mixing invites a little bit of everything to the table. With a dash of cheetah print here and spot of polka dots there, designers are taking a more-is-better approach to the print making, creating a whirlwind of whimsical and quirky fashions for tween girls and little girls alike. Girls fashions are often accented with glitter and sequins to make it even more over the top. And as prints become more more vivid and realistic in part to advancement in print making, this mixing trend is sure to continue well into Spring 16.
Here are some of the examples from our fall 15 offers:

Leaves are turning yellow, one of my favorite seasons is here. Holidays will be upon us very shortly too. October is the time when most of us schedule Holiday photo sessions and kids have pictures taken at school. These pictures are important because they create precious memories of the childhood that will last for years to come. Personally, I save all of my daughter’s little mementos, thinking that one day, when she has her own kids, she would like to open the box and show it all to her own children. However, shopping for a Holiday outfit for your little girl can be stressful if not approached correctly. After all, she doesn’t need just a dress, which would be fairly easy to find, but she also needs matching headband, shoes, tights and sometimes a shrug to keep her warm. If you are in the same boat as I’m, you probably know how hard it is to find all that in one place.
Unfortunately, my 14 year old outgrew kid sizes recently, so I can’t just go to the warehouse and pick something cute for here, like I used to when she was younger. Now I have to go shopping someplace else. And of course, she has to approve everything I buy for her. On many occasions, I tried to go to the mall and get everything I needed in one or two stores, but it was virtually impossible. By the time, I found a dress ( if I was lucky), I was so exhausted that I had no energy to look for matching shoes or accessories. I also tried boutiques, but boutique stores usually carry a small selection and sizes are usually sold-out. Having recognized that need, I realized that it would be nice to find everything you needed in one place. Littlefashionsboutique.com strives to be that one place.
We carry a wide selection of beautiful girls’ Holiday dresses, along with matching shoes, hair accessories, tights and socks and lots more. We even show matching accessories on the same page as the outfit in “You will like column”, which means that accessories shown there will match the dress. Unfortunately internet also has it’s limitations, due to various screen resolutions, items may appear different color than they actually are. It may appear that items don’t match at all because pictures were taken with different lighting or different camera. The best way to decide is to see an actual item. And this is what we do here, we put accessories with the dress and see how it looks, before offering them as an outfit must have. If you are in doubt, you can always call or email our customer service and we will help you fin right accessories and answer any questions you may have about an item.
Of course, there are basic rules that apply to creating an outfit. If you are going with solids, it’s pretty simple. Just make sure that your shade of red is the same or similar on your accessories. If you are more daring and love mixing colors, or the dress has multiple colors, make sure to alternate colors. For example, if you want to combine gold and ivory, (one of the most popular color schemes after red), make sure to alternate. Example: Ivory headband, gold dress, ivory tights, gold shoes. You want to combine red and gold, do gold headband, red dress, ivory or beige tights, gold shoes. What if the colors are mixed? Well, if the bottom of the dress is gold, wear red tights, if the bottom of the dress is red, wear ivory or gold tights. Simple alternating is the best solution.
In some cases, it is not so intuitive and easy, as I mentioned before, it’s not always easy to determine colors online, especially when you are trying to match something you already purchased. So I decided to put some of the Holiday looks together showing different looks with different types of accessories.
The first dress is beautiful Haute Baby “Ivy Rose” Tween Slip Dress.
The colors on this dress are soft pink and golden beige, that shimmers and shines and is hard to describe or match. Haute Baby already offers matching ivory and beige bow and ivory shrug. But is is the only option? Of course not. One of the options would be Coastal Projections Sparkly Golden Beige Sequined Shoes w/Rosettes paired with manufacturer’s bow or Golden Rose Heaband by Kids Kapers.
Another route would be Coastal Projections Sparkly Light Pink Customs Sequined Shoes paired with light pink hair accessories. What if you want her to wear an ivory shrug? No problem, pair it up with Coastal Projections Ivory Sequined Flower Sparkly Shoes w/Rosettes and an ivory
Ok, next item is gorgeous Biscotti “Deck the Halls” Festive Red Drop Waist Holiday Dress. This is a traditional rich red tulle bottom dress with sequined bodice and can be easily accessorized with red shoes and bow. But what if you want to try something different? No worries, we have that covered too. How about stunning Joyfolie Valeria Red Satin Holiday Girls Shoes w/Gold Bow & matching Couture Clips Large Gold Glitter Bow Headband. If you don’t want to spend extra money on headband, you can always use a small hair clip that comes with Joyfolie Shoes free of charge.

As back to school winds down and the hot days of summer slowly slide into the crisp mornings and warm afternoons of autumn, it’s time again for that annual tradition beloved by moms, grandmas, and aunties everywhere: Choosing the perfect fall girls’ jackets and winter girls’ coats for the coming season.
You want your little sweetie to stand out in the crowd — after all, she is a budding fashionista! — but you also want to ensure that you choose the right coat for the right occasion. Whether you live in a cold, snowy climate that requires down fill coats or faux-fur hoods, like on this adorable Creamie Long Hooded Winter Coat, to keep her toasty warm through the winter, or live in milder latitudes that experience chilly mornings and evenings with warmer days sandwiched in between, choosing the right girls’ coats and jackets for fall and winter is about so much more than simply how they look.
Rather, it’s essential to consider factors such as warmth, weight, weather resistance, and (OK, we admit it!) those coats had better be just as cute as your little girl is, too, so they blend seamlessly into the rest of her winter wardrobe! As you undoubtedly already know, nothing’s worse than getting her all dressed up for a special event, just to top off her stunning outfit with a clunky coat that doesn’t match — am I right?
There’s really no reason why her winter coats and fall jackets shouldn’t be able to stand on their own, as fashionable objects d’art… or at least, as super cute and stylish outerwear that doesn’t detract from the rest of her impeccable wardrobe, like the always-spot-on designs from Mack & Co. With all of these factors to consider, we’d like to present our guide to choosing the perfect fall girls’ jackets and winter girls’ coats for your little one, so she’ll always look amazing — and be warm and toasty! — through the upcoming cold months.
The Perfect Fit
The first step in choosing the right coat is getting the right fit. Many moms might think that it makes sense to get a size bigger than their kiddo is wearing now, so she wear it again next winter. Not a good idea, says Savvy Mommy’s Victoria Pericon. Why? Because there’s no way to know exactly what size your girl will be next season, so chances are high that you’ll only get a single season out of it.
By next year, she’ll have likely outgrown this year’s model — and if it doesn’t fit just right, she’ll feel uncomfortable, too cold, and will be more likely to take it off. Plus, who wants to be stuck in last year’s styles? Not your little girl! So don’t take a risk. Choose an option that’s just the right fit & size, like this adorable heart print coat from Mim Pi Fall 2014 collection.
For Colder Climes
If the weather outside is frightful, keep her warm and cozy with down fill coats in a rainbow of colors, from pink to teal, to match any outfit. Perfect for snowy days, One Kid down coats & thermal jackets will keep her comfy and let her play outside longer. Bonus: One Kid thermal jackets are reversible, so you’re getting two looks in one!
For Warmer Regions
If you live in a region with warmer winters — or you just need a lighter jacket for fall — consider fleece girls coats. Fleece is a perfect choice for little ones; it’s light, soft, and easy to maintain, not to mention keeps her warm without weighing her down.
Fleece is the perfect choice for those in-between days; it can even get all dressed up, like these gorgeous Kate Mack coats. Kate Mack jackets are known for their fashion-forward styling and adorable attention to detail, and the 2014 Fall and Winter collection is no exception!
Just because the weather’s getting colder doesn’t mean your little girl can’t still look stylish and unique. Check out our selection of winter girls’ coats and jackets — we known you’ll find just the right options for her wardrobe this fall!
And don’t forget to check-out a selection of adorable and stylish little and tween girls rain coats from Oil & Water for early fall.

Recently we have been getting quite a few new customers who are not familiar with the way pre-orders work. So we decide to write a little article explaining this interesting way of shopping.
To begin with, pre-orders are not commonly offered through large online retailers, they are only offered through smaller, more unique upscale boutiques that sell designer clothing. In short, pre-order is an advance purchase, similar to layaway, but not quite the same. With layaway, you are putting aside something that is readily available in the store; but with pre-order, you are purchasing something that has not been produced or has not yet arrived to the store. At Littlefashionsboutique.com pre-orders are usually done for 2 seasons: fall/winter and spring/summer and are taken out of the current stock. In other words, you are pre-ordering items that we already ordered from the manufacturer and only limited quantities will be available for purchase. Fall/Winter pre-orders are usually offered from June to late August, for Spring/Summer from November to late February. Once items arrive to our store, they become “in-stock” items and can not be pre-ordered. Then is it called ” special order” and it’s not guaranteed. The reason is that when we shop for the season, we frequently order merchandise 3-8 months in advance, and most of our manufacturers cut-to-order. They do not cut any extra merchandise or cut very small amount in addition to what was already ordered. Some larger companies cut about 10% overstock and we can place “special orders” or get extra available stock from those companies.
Pre-order is a great way to shop early and to guarantee that your favorite items do not sell-out by the time shopping season starts. Good thing about pre-orders is that you don’t have to pay in advance, Littlefashionsboutique.com only charges 25% deposit once your order is received. We also offer flexible payment options, per customer request, we can charge 50% deposit, charge entire amount or not charge anything at all until you ask. However with Paypal purchase you will be charged in full, that’s just how Paypal works. So if you are placing a pre-order and want to pay just a deposit, use regular credit card, this way you have more options. Pre-Orders are great way to shop for necessity items like winter coats & jackets, Holiday dresses or a matching pair of shoes that will be needed a month or two. Another great thing about pre-orders is that they ship Free, make sure to check all the announcements on the website and join mailing list to be aware of the promotions and coupons.Expected delivery windows for pre-orders are always stated in item descriptions, but they are approximate and are not cut in stone, if you have a short time frame, you can always call us to confirm the expected delivery time.
