When I was a little girl, I would sketch out all of the pieces in my wardrobe. Once I had drawn each one on small pieces of white paper, I would color them and cut them out. I’d pin them to a small cork board in my room and mix and match outfit ideas all afternoon. Honestly, I'm pretty sure no other 7 year old does this, so I guess I should have known even then I was destined to be in the fashion industry.
I also remember the way clothes made me feel. There are certain pieces that still stick out in my mind, and because of that, I will always associate them with specific memories from my childhood. Isn't it wild how something like a sweater or a great dress can trigger some of the sweetest memories from our younger years?
As we grow up and learn what makes us feel good and look good, we spend a lot of time building our own wardrobes and cultivating our own style, so why shouldn’t we do the same thing for our kiddos?
I think there is something really special about cultivating a style for your child. It allows you to cater their clothes to their specific personality, uniqueness, and creativity. It's such an important piece of their identity!
We LOVE that we get to be a small piece of that for you and your little loves. Maybe one day this dress will trigger a sweet memory for your little girl of twirling around the dance floor at a wedding, cheering for a loved one at graduation, or even just dancing around the kitchen during a fun family breakfast.
When we were creating this summer line, the one thing we kept revisiting was our desire to create great basics. It is so important to have great basics in both you and your kiddo's wardrobe. Whether it’s a flowy white tee shirt that can be dressed up or down, or a little black dress that makes you feel like a million bucks, basics are the pillar of a killer wardrobe! These are the versatile and foundational pieces of your wardrobe that you can always rely on. This classic dress will be just that for your little lady!
