Declare Tonight Family Night | SophiasStyle.com

flapdoodles-dress__1

All of us have fast-paced lives full with work, school, friends and other activities. With all that’s going on it is so hard to keep up with our families. Today is the day to make time for your family, no matter what! When I was a little girl my family designated every Sunday night as family night. Sometimes we would go to dinner at a restaurant or just stay home and play a board game. My favorite activity was a trip to the roller skating rink.

Pick whatever day works best for your family. If other activities get in the way, try your best to work around them so that your family still gets time together each week. You can even incorporate other events into family night. If your little one has a soccer game that day, make your group activity be cheering him or her on at the game!


Dress your little girl for whatever Family Night activity you have planned with little girls clothing from SophiasStyle.com . She’ll be ready for the zoo, the park or just hanging out at home. Shop our little girls clothes online and save on designer boutique looks. You won’t spend a fortune on her wardrobe so you’ll have money left over for fun family activities!


What group activities does your family enjoy most? Share your thoughts!

Easy Birthday Decorations Sure To Delight Your Party Guests

colorful-bows__1

Planning for your little girl’s first birthday party is a lot of fun but can be stressful too. You want everything to look great and go smoothly, but it’s hard to throw a big bash when you’ve got a little to chase after! This great idea for birthday decorations will help simplify at least one aspect of your party.

Choose a colorful, decorative plastic bowl to use as a centerpiece at each table. You can use any size you like, or even different sizes at each table for a really interesting look. Next, gather an assortment of colorful wrapping bows to fill the bowls with. You can purchase new bows, or re-use old gift bows if you have them. Anything goes! You can choose different colors to fit any birthday theme or season.

Not only is this project inexpensive, simple, and mess free, but your pint-sized party guests will love playing with all the brightly colored bows! If you’ve ever seen a baby with gift bows, you know it will keep them busy for hours.

Don’t forget to shop our selection of girls birthday dresses at SophiasStyle.com. A beautiful birthday dress is just what you need to “decorate” your adorable little guest of honor!

Plan A Spook-tacular Halloween Party with SophiasStyle.com

halloween-witch__1

Like most other kids, my daughter is always excited for Halloween. She loves dressing up, trick-or-treating and all the candy. This year, however, she is more excited than ever for Halloween because I am letting her have her first boy/girl party with friends from school. I think she’s really nervous, but also very excited! Throwing a party for all her school friends makes her feel like a grown up!

Like any other year, she wants to find a great Halloween costume to wear. She wants one that all the kids will love (I think she might be trying to impress the little boy she has a crush on!) We ordered this Halloween costume from SophiasStyle.com for the party. It was very affordable and we didn’t find girls Halloween costumes in stores that were anything like it – truly one-of-a-kind! She can even wear it after Halloween to play dress up with her friends. SophiasStyle.com also has lots of great baby Halloween costumes, so her baby brother can join the party too!

After we got her costume squared away, it was on to the rest of the party details. I found a great pumpkin-shaped ice cube tray at a local craft store. These festive ice cubes will really jazz up the punch bowl! Last year I also found some plastic Halloween cups on the clearance shelf for about 30 cents each. I’m going to fill them with little plastic bags of puppy chow mix. They’ll make the perfect party favors!

Do you have any other creative ideas for our Halloween party? I can’t wait to hear them!

Help Her Prepare For Her First Communion

communion-dress__1

A girl’s first communion marks a turning point in her life. It signifies that she is truly growing up, not only in her faith but as a young lady too. Even after all of these years, I still remember the day I made my first communion. I also remember the beautiful first communion dress I was wearing. One of the most important elements of the ceremony is, of course, her communion dress. It is typically white and should be more than just your average, everyday dress. It should be a garment that makes you say “Wow! This dress is truly for a very special occasion!”


SophiasStyle.com has dozens of communion dresses that fit the bill! Our dresses make young girls feel beautiful and add to the significance of the sacrament. We also carry plus size communion dresses, so we have a dress for every girl, not matter her size, shape or personality! Don’t forget accessories such as communion veils and gloves to complete the look.


If you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend or any other person who is part of this important celebration,you also want to find the perfect gift to help her mark this blessed event in her life. A great first communion gift is a rosary, perhaps one that is more grown up and sophisticated than plastic rosary beads. Another idea is a statue of her favorite saint, or a saint she is named after. Finally, a prayer book or a guide makes a great gift because it will help her gain a better understanding of the sacrament she is taking part in.


Do you have any other ideas for first communion gifts? We’d love to hear them!

Spread Holiday Cheer with SophiasStyle.com

christmas-dress__3

The kids are back in school and now that Labor Day has passed, summer is officially over. This is the time to start planning for the holiday picture! I like to start getting some ideas of what I want to do for the oh-so-famous picture on our Christmas cards this year. Should we all sit in front of the Christmas tree or the fireplace? The whole family or just the kids? And am I really going to let my husband wear that Santa hat for the photo…again?

One thing I know for sure – I want to find the perfect Christmas dresses for my girls that will express their individuality. I have three daughters ages 5, 11 and 13. They all possess such different personalities that it makes it hard for me to dress them alike. This year I’m going to let them pick out their own dresses. SophiasStyle.com has just what I’m looking for. We have a large selection of all different styles and brands of the most beautiful girls Christmas dresses! SophiasStyle.com boutique makes it fun and easy to shop with our endless choices and affordable prices!

How early do you start shopping for the holidays? Chat with us!

Discount School Uniforms at SophiasStyle.com

school-uniforms__1

As a product of the private school system, I am very familiar with school uniforms. In fact, college was the first time in my life I didn’t have to wear a uniform to school! Now that I am an adult I realize just how many sacrifices my parents made to send me to private school. Part of that sacrifice was spending loads of money on my school uniform each fall.

Luckily parents today have a better option for uniforms. SophiasStyle.com offers both boys and girls school uniforms at discount prices. We have pants, shorts, dresses and tops that are exactly what you need. Spending lots of money on school uniforms is so last school year!

Celebrate Your Little Girl With A Birthday Dress

Click here for girls Birthday dresses at SophiasStyle.com

A friend of mine got wonderful news this week and I’m so excited for her! Finally paperwork has come through from the Indian government and next month she and her husband will be traveling overseas to adopt two young sisters from India. They started this process more than a year ago, and now the adoption is nearly final. The girls were abandoned in a train station after their mother died, and I know my friend is anxious and excited to show her new daughters the love and care they’ve been missing.

To help her celebrate their arrival, friends and family are throwing a “gotcha day” party for the girls. This is a common occurrence, especially when families adopt internationally. Instead of celebrating the child’s birthday (which is often times unknown), they celebrate the day he or she was adopted – a “gotcha day.” It’s a great way of moving forward from a past that is often scary and painful. More importantly, it signifies a new beginning with a new family.

 Just because the celebration has a different name does not mean the girls should be without beautiful birthday dresses! I helped my friend pick out a birthday dress from SophiasStyle.com for each girl to wear to her party. They’ll be the perfect icing on the cake for their “gotcha day” celebration. I know their new dresses will make the girls feel like princesses on such an important day in their lives. I hope beautiful birthday outfits help them create memories with their new family that will truly last a lifetime!

How do you celebrate you daughter’s birthday (or “gotcha day”)? We can’t wait to hear from you!

Sophias Style Girls Sleepwear is Great For Camping Out or Just Hanging Out

sleepwear__1

One of my favorite things to do during Fall is campout with my husband and little girl in a tent in the backyard. Fall is the perfect time. The days are still warm with leftover summer weather, but the nights are chilly enough that it makes snuggling a must!

SophiasStyle.com girls clothing store has adorable new girls sleepwear that will be perfect for our campouts. I can already picture her toasting marshmallows by the fire in these new pajamas. There’s even a great selection of toddler pajamas and baby pajamas to choose from too – perfect for when her younger cousins come visit our “campsite!”

What’s your favorite thing to do when Fall arrives? We’d love to hear from you!
