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.
