If there is one thing Sophia’s Style does better than anyone else, it’s birthday dresses.  We always have lots of cute styles in, and we take care to never go out of stock in our most popular ones. 

The adorable girl in the photo is Gwen, and her mother was kind enough to post this fantastic photo of her wearing a baby girl birthday dress from Sophia’s Style on our Facebook page.

First Communion Dresses | Sophia’s Style

Sophia’s Style has just started carrying special occasion dresses by Sweetie Pie, and their First Communion Dresses are absolutely stunning.  They come in a variety of cuts and styles, and my favorite are the ones with cap sleeves.  The one in the photo looks just a little retro- like a wedding gown that would have been worn in the late eighties or early nineties. 
We also have a great selection of 1st Communion accessories, including headpieces, gloves, purses, shoes and more on our sister site,  If you have a little girl approaching her first Communion, you should definitely check it out. 
Also, if you’re looking for a good Communion gift, Blessed Treasures carries a beautiful variety of custom rosaries. 

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Tuesday!

The Perfect Winter Sale Storm


Discount Girls Clothing
Rare Editions Plaid Sweater Dress

Deep down inside, I always think I would be a little sad if I won the lottery.  Money comes with so many benefits; I would love the travel, love being able to give the people I care about everything they need.. but at the same time, I think it would kill the joy of shopping for me.  Bargain hunting is so much fun!  The challenge is so exciting.  For example:  I have been in semi-desperate need of a new winter coat.  The one I’ve been wearing has a lovely design, but it’s beginning to look hopelessly ragged.  Even my dry cleaners have given up on it. 

However, it’s Christmas, and I don’t have tons of spare cash to be spending on myself at the moment.  I would put a coat on my wishlist, but to be honest, coats are something I simply have to find for myself- the style, fit and color all need to be perfect. 

So, I’ve been browsing all my favorite women’s clothing sites, and I finally came across The One.  It’s beautiful:  the perfect neutral shade of camel, bracelet-length sleeves, funnel collar, and a swing hem- very 20’s, which is my absolute favorite fashion era.  The only problem was the price!  The coat is gorgeous, and judging by the quality of everything else I’ve bought from that company, it’s probably worth every penny they’re asking.  Nevertheless, Christmas gifts for others are priority number one in December.  I decided to cross my fingers that it didn’t sell out, and hope for the perfect winter sale storm to hit.  And it actually did!  They marked the price down by 40%, and then offered an additional 25% discount on all sale items.  I bought it immediately, and it was just in the knick of time, because the coat completely sold out the very next day.

As much as I loved the coat before, I love it even more now that I got it at such a killer price.  If I had an unlimited clothing budget, I’d have just bought it right away.  Sure, I’d still adore it, but there’s no way I’d be able to appreciate it the way I do now.

Sophia’s Style is now beginning our Winter Wonderland Sale– which is our Perfect Storm of winter discounts.  Winter items are not only marked down, but you get an additional 25% off all our in-season styles if you enter WINTER25 at checkout.  Now you can shop all the things you just couldn’t quite justify spending money on before, and get them at a fraction of the original price.  Winter markdowns are a beautiful thing. 

Side Note:  If you’re feeling like you should be slowing down the winter shopping and starting to think about spring, you’re half right.  Spring is what’s next.  However, we all know that we’ve got about two more months of bitter cold ahead of us before we can even hope to start emulating anything that’s happening on the runways in the way to Spring ’11 RTW.  Also, winter styles vary far less from season to season than warm weather looks do.  Nice coats, cozy sweaters, and lots-o-layers are basically always going to be in, so never hesitate to stock up when the price is right.

Stocking Stuffer Idea

Girls Hair Accessories

Ok, it may be because I’m already getting excited about spring (blame, it’s those spring runway shows that are causing it), but I am in love with our girls hair accessories.  They’re so beautiful!  What could be prettier than jeweled flowers in a girl’s hair?  And, even though flowers are spring-y, they can still totally work as winter accessories.  You can’t go wrong with floral hair clips and headbands, regardless of the season.  They’d make good stocking stuffers… hint hint. 

And speaking of stocking stuffers, if you still haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, you can have presents delivered from Sophia’s Style by Christmas Eve with 2nd Day Air, so don’t hesitate to keep online shopping.

While we’re on the subject of last minute gifts, you should also know that Sophia’s Style is now offering EGift Cards.  Now, a lot of people think gift cards seem impersonal, or thoughtless.  I, however, tend to disagree.  I have rather particular tastes, and am also incredibly difficult to fit.  I like shopping for myself, so gift cards are wonderful gifts for me.  And let’s be honest, most of us give gifts with gift receipts.  That’s just a present-shaped gift card.  So send EGift Cards shamelessly, that way your girl can get exactly what she wants- and she’ll probably be able to make that gift card stretch much further with post-Christmas sales.

30% Off Sweaters and T-Shirts, Today Only!


Girls Tops

The title of this post really sums up the content for you, but keep reading because you need a coupon code!   Enter 30TEE at checkout and you will receive 30% off sweaters and t-shirts.  Remember, this is valid for today only! 

While we’re on the subject of girls tops, did you know that Onsie™ is a tradmarked term?  It’s like Kleenex™, it’s a brand of tissues, but most people use it as a noun instead of saying “tissue.”  In the rest of the baby clothing world, baby girl shirts that also cover the diaper are called bodysuits for babies

I have a Lebonese friend who was telling me that growing up, he didn’t know Nescafe™ was a brand name, he thought it was just the name of a beverage- because so many people drink it with mild and sweetener in Lebanon, and coffee is a whole other drink.  It’s so weird how that happens!

Anyway, I learned how to make the tradmark symbol with html today and found three excuses to use it in one blog, so I’m pretty excited about that.  How’s your Monday going?

Girls Swimwear has arrived at Sophia’s Style!

 I know it’s still December, and we haven’t even made it to Christmas yet, but I can’t help but get excited about spring and summer already!  I love fall- the weather as well as the fashion, and I like winter because of the holidays and the fashion (I tolerate the weather only because I must), but as soon as New Years is over, I’m set for spring.  I survive January only by curling up with books and ignoring the world until the weather starts to behave reasonably again. 

So, you can imagine my excitement when our shipping manager emailed me that our girls swimwear is here.  We have so many cute new suits, remember when choosing a swimsuit was only about finding a color or pattern you liked?  I miss those days, kids have no idea how easy they’ve got it.  Grown-ups have to worry about flattering cuts and styles, choosing patterns that accentuate the right things, etc. 

Speaking of, here is a great article about how to find swimwear that flatters your figure.  I definitely recommend giving it a read- if nothing else, it’ll be good motivation to keep hitting the gym this winter.  Also, the Orchid Boutique has some really great women’s swimwear, so you can start choosing the perfect suit now!  This might be especially helpful if you’re planning a tropical vacation this winter.
