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:

As a boutique store owner, every so often, I get emails from my customers about starting an online store and how to find merchandise for your store.
So I decided to write a little bit about this in our blog.
Sure, having a children’s clothing store it a lot of fun and is very rewarding emotionally, especially if you love kids and have lots of patience. I got into this business, because I loved to dress-up my own daughter and I love fashion in general. I learned about different brands by browsing Ebay and selling second hand clothing on it. Then I started purchasing new clothing and reselling it on auction sites. It took me several years to figure-out what’s hot and what’s not.
For stay at home moms who have some free time and want to make a few extra bucks, it’s perfect. However, if you want to build a serious business to support your family, it’s not that easy.
There are many aspects to owning online clothing store. It’s 24/7 job as it requires so much more than just building a website and buying merchandise to sell. Retail business has very low margins, so you will not become rich overnight, if ever. To build a successful kids clothing store, you need to know about SEO, Online Marketing, Google, Facebook, Pinterest and other numerous Social Media venues. With constant algorithm changes by search engines, it is very hard to stay on top of the page, where customers can find you. So you need to figure this out yourself or to hire someone else to do it for you, which is very expensive. You also need to figure out what carriers offer the best shipping options, packaging, wrapping and so much more.
And here comes the fun part. Shopping for your store. Let’s face it, many online store owners get into this business, because they love to shop. But shopping for the store is very different that shopping for yourself. Let’s say you purchase a few thousand dollars of merchandise from the brand that you absolutely love, but your customers don’t feel that same love. What do you do? Bring it back and return it like you would your own personal item? Not so fast, you can’t do it. You have to figure-out how to sell it without a loss or persuade your customers that this is an amazing clothing line that they absolutely can’t live without. So good marketing skills are a must.
To set it all aside, shopping is still so much fun for me. When you go to trade show, there is so much diversity as you see manufacturers form all over the world and get to talk to many people with a variety of backgrounds in manufacturing field. However, for the past few years, due to week economy, it has been increasingly difficult to find new quality lines that we would like to add to our store. I have the seen the trend that many store owners are selling the same tried and true brands that they have been selling for years. The downside to it is that there is too much competition, & customers are getting tired of seeing the same clothing all over again. To keep your customers coming you need to find fresh new lines that they will appreciate & love.
This is why I was very excited when I found several new lines for our store for Spring 2014 Season. Those are: Ondade Mar Swimwear for Girls, Reina Mora Dresses and Cupcakes & Pastries. We will have a separate blog post about these lines, but I jut had to mention these. Ondade Mar is my absolute new favorite. This collection is sold at upscale stores like Barneys, but I think we are the first online store to carry it, so you won’t find it on your next door kid at the pool. The quality of this line is amazing and the prints are so fun! It’s good for little girls and tweens, but we mostly have it in tween sizes, we just received it and it’s ready to ship. They also have amazing cover-ups and dresses, one of them is: Ondade Mar White Eyelet Dress/Cover-up.
Here are the pictures of some of my favorites form Spring 14 Ondade Mar Collection, have fun shopping and ask questions if you’d like about his post or in general.

Fall is here, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to spice up your little girl or tween’s cool-weather wardrobe with the latest styles, all inspired by the high-end looks that appeared on the runways of New York, London and Paris. For their Fall 2013 collections, designers played with texture in a range of fresh, beautiful — and adorable — ways, from playful prints to lux faux fur and metallic glitter and shine. This season’s hottest colors reflected the metallic trend, with stunning golden shimmer and lurex accents lighting up rich, subtle shades. Silhouettes focused on the feminine, with hi-lo hemlines, puffy jackets and dresses galore walking the runway.
Fall 2013 collections are inspired by preppy, collegiate looks that offer the perfect blend of youthful fun and stylish sophistication. From sweater sets to pinstripes, classic Fair Isle patterns to adorable plaids and stripes in vibrant primary colors, this fresh influence is perfect for girls of all ages. Case in point: This stylin’ Red Preppy Blazer from Ragdoll and Rockets exemplifies that prep school style with in a gorgeous bright red offset by classic gray collar and pocket details.
That feminine style is also on trend this fall, with collections featuring ultra-girly shine and pretty detailing. Dresses are hot on the runways, from a-lines to dirndls, sheaths to flowing maxis with hi-lo hems. This shimmering golden rose special occasion dress from Biscotti is feminine through and through, with its tiered skirt and rosette detailing.
When it comes to fabrics, metallic shine is key this fall. Look for gorgeous sweaters knit with lurex or glitter thread, golden pleathers, faux fur and brushed wovens that add texture and depth to any outfit. This stunning pleather skirt for tweens from TRULUV catches the eye with its golden, shining swing. It’s perfect dressed up or down and looks amazing with tall boots and black military style jacket by TruLuv, sold separately.
There’s nothing quite as fun as faux fur, and this amazing jacket from SuperTrash lets her stylish, hip side show through. Crafted from soft faux fur in the deepest, richest shade of blue, this cozy jacket lights up any fall or winter event, from school to nights out with her friends.
Metallics are so hot this season, they’re showing up everywhere! Shimmering gold and sparkling silver are dressing up everything from leggings to vests and skirts. These adorable leggings for tweens from Ragdoll and Rockets pair perfectly with everything from faux fur vests to tunic tops, with a metallic gold python pattern that takes any outfit up a notch.
But shiny metallics aren’t the only trending colors; subtle, sophisticated shades of plum, gray and powder blue add an elegant touch to any wardrobe. This two-piece sweater set from Hannah Banana pairs complementary shades of gorgeous gray for a look that’ll take her from school to weekend activities with ease.
As always, silhouettes make all the difference, and Fall 2013 collections focus on a fusion of sophisticated style and lighthearted playfulness. Quirky puffy jackets, like this beautiful, dark gray coat with a pink faux fur collar from One Kid, and fluffy, furry vests add a fun touch to any fall and winter wardrobe
At the same time, dresses in a range of shapes — shifts, sheaths, cap sleeves and draped styles — bring out her feminine side. Asymmetrical, hi-lo hems are hot, too, adding an eclectic, modern style to her closet. Top a lovely, girl dress with a vest, like this stunning, funky “wolf” faux fur vest from Curio + Kind, for a fashion-forward silhouette.
This fall, it’s all about the details! Your girl will adore the profusion of glittering sequins and edgy studs dressing up the Fall 2013 collections. Fresh touches, like colorblocking and box pleats, add up to create a modern look. This stunning colorblocked dress from Zoe Ltd. is perfect for your tween fashionista, bringing together some of Fall 2013′s best detail trends.
For a more casual look, designer Hanna Banana blends studs with skinny pants and a retro tie for a look that’s pure rock and roll. These stretchy, leather-look pants are made even more super-cool with rows of shiny, silver studs along the sides and on the back pockets.
Motifs are big this fall, too, with patterns dominating the runways at Fashion Week. From chevron stripes to skylines, colorful animal prints to plaids, snakeskin to rainbow stripes, graphics have gone bigger and bolder than ever. This adorable dress from Little Mass blends a bold, sequined heart with cute plaid ruffles and two-fer sleeves for a super cute look.
Also on trend, this beautiful sheath from Elisa B dresses up your budding fashionista in today’s hottest motifs, with animal print surrounding bold colorblocking.

Fall lurks in the near future, and that means one thing: It’s time to embark on a serious back to school shopping spree! As we all know too well, there’s nothing better (not) than taking a trip to the mall the week before school starts. As if battling traffic and pulling Pole Position maneuvers to grab the only available parking space before you even get in the door isn’t fun enough, then there’re the crowds.
Not only did everyone and their dog apparently have the same idea you did ("Oopsies, school starts in a week! Better go shopping!), they all seem to be waiting in the same — interminable — line. You know, because stores love to just have one register open on the busiest shopping day of the season.
Worse, every single parent and grandparent at your friendly neighborhood mall is buying the Exact. Same. Outfits. Which is, of course, because that’s all the chain stores offer. But, hey, maybe you want your daughter to look like a clone of all the other girls in her classroom… in which case, stop reading and head to the mall. Have fun waiting in line!
This year, make back to school shopping easy on yourself — and get the cutest, latest designer girls’ clothes out there so she’ll always stand out in the crowd – by shopping ahead of time from the comfort of home by pre-ordering from our online designer girls’ clothing boutique.

She needs a warm coat — so why not make it gorgeous? Corky & Co Coats 2013 line is available for pre-order now and features stunning jewel tones, vintage style and lux fabrics that’ll light up any chilly fall evening — all with matching accessories.
For those special occasions that keep her calendar busy from autumn through the winter months – holiday parties, dinner at Grandma’s, church or temple services, school functions, family photo shoots — you’ll need a selection of picture-perfect little girls’ dresses. Don’t worry — we’ve got an amazing selection of girls’ special occasion dresses from designers like Laundry Girls, Biscotti, Isobella & Chloe, Little Mass and Moxie & Mabel.

With Memorial Day weekend just a couple of short days away and swimming season approaching quickly, shopping for girls swimwear must be on many parents’ minds. With so many choices available in stores and online, it may seem like an easy task to choose a cute swimsuit for your little girl. However, it’s not that simple. Girls these days are much more selective and many prefer a certain style of swimsuit. Some of them won’t even look at the the bikini, some of them wear exclusively 1pc swimwear and some prefer tankinis. Style especially matters for tween girls, who become aware of their bodies and are very selective in what they will put on, especially around friends. My 12 year old doesn’t want to hear about anything other that 1pc swimsuit and wants to cover as much as possible. Some of her friends however, only wear bikinis. So, when shopping for girls swimwear, it’s always a good idea to ask your child about the style preference, as many stores do not refund swimwear. If you are shopping for infant girl or toddler girl swimwear, you may want to consider a 2pc swimsuit, because that would make diaper changing much easier. It is not fun pulling a wet swimsuit off the wiggling toddler. Worried about sun-burns? You may want to choose rash guard swimsuit.
Looking for something cutesy with ruffles and sequins? Kate Mack is a way to go.
Another big consideration in purchasing designer girls swimwear is quality of the garment. Kids spent a lot more time in the pool during summer than adults do, so their swimsuits get exposed to lot sof chlorine and sun. You don’t want to go shopping again after a couple of weeks of wear. That’s why it is a good idea to purchase 2 or 3 at a time and make sure that you only buy best quality swimwear, you will save money in the long run. At Littlefashionsboutique, we carry only high quality brands like Kate Mack, Submarine & Floatimini. This girls swimwear is made with high quality lycra and has UV protection.
Another thing to remember while shopping for swimwear is sizing. Swimwear brands run quite differently and some are cut quite small. For examle, Submarine Swimwear is cut only in even sizes and needs to be purchased a size-up. Floatimini is also cut on the small side and Kate Mack swimwear is cut more tru to size. Always ask questions before buying girls swimsuits- that will save money and time. Have fun shopping!
