Introducing the Isabella Floral Girl Dress by Treasure Box Kids
A stylish, colorful floral girl dress is always an essential piece of any girls wardrobe. Whether it is spring or summer, or for really any season if the weather allows, kids like to twirl, play, and get down with the world around them.
As always, we’re keeping it comfortable and functional so your child can play all day, but can also dress up if the occasion calls for it. Comfort and style are a dynamic duo, and the cherry on top is the fact that our Isabella is ethically manufactured right here in Central Florida.
Our Floral Girl Dress’s Wear and Care
Treasure Box Kids Navy Blue Daisy Isabella Girls Dress
If you know us, you know we put quality first. Just like all of our other clothes, the $49.95 Isabella Dress is made of hand-selected, 100 percent cotton fabric.
Isabella is soft on the skin and light enough to breathe through a hot summer day. Its A-line fit will give your child room to move, run and stay comfortable through most activities they choose to take part in.
After a hard day’s play, washing will be as easy as the dress’s fit. Throw it in the washer and dryer with your regular cycles and forget about high maintenance care.
Treasure Box Kids Navy Blue Daisy Isabella Girls Dress
Our timeless pieces are made to be worn for years on end. Isabella is a knee length dress, so when purchased she’ll fit as described. As time goes on and your child grows taller, styling the dress with a pair of white leggings will offer a cute and everlasting look.
Both the coral and navy Isabella dresses are fully lined in cotton for your child’s comfort. These styles include varying daisy accents on the sleeves, around the hips and at the bottom of the dresses, giving a subtle yet adorned look that can be dressed up or down.
The fabric we use in these dresses is imported, but its zipper and all of its production is made in the USA. A floral girl dress by TBK will give your child comfort and style while also supporting our community.
Behind the Scenes – Girls Fashion Photography at TBK
The Orlando girls fashion community is one that we are proud to contribute to. Last month, we took our first steps in Treasure Box Kid’s new direction by debuting two new designs in our Made in the USA line, and the whole process was shot right here in our very own Winter Park, FL.
Along the way, we worked with two marvelous models and our spring interns A-team to help bring our kid’s clothes dreams to life. All of our photo shoots have taken place in the Central Florida area, and in the past, we’ve been active in the Orlando community by hosting other events and fashion shows. To check out one of our past events, read our post on our TBK fashion show-Behind the Scenes.
Our Girls Fashion Photography Team
We’d like to start by thanking our little troopers, who modeled our new blue and pink Isabella dresses, our classic Purple Butterly Capri Pant Set and our Victoria Dress through the Florida weather. Their fabulous work speaks for itself, showing their stellar growth as up-and-coming industry professionals.
Starting the day bright and early, they met us on-site and powered through our photo a video process, all the while staying focused and consistently giving their best. We would also like to thank the wonderful families of our models, who were there every step of the way to root on and encourage their girls.
Working behind the camera were our interns, who set up shop, assisted the models and took pictures for the shoot. With combined efforts in marketing, film, and advertising, they worked as a unit to manage our social channels, assist our models and ensure that all of our photo elements were up to par. In the end, the shoot ran by smoothly thanks to their coordination and dedication.
We would like to give a special thanks to Monique Trevett, our photographer and film intern. She served as the guiding eye to the shoot and worked behind the lens to get the best out of our models. Without her direction, we wouldn’t have our success.

In the past, Pantone Color of the year selections have easily been found in nature. Last year’s color was greenery, the year before that it was rose quartz and serenity (a light pink and sky blue combo,) and the year before that it was marsala, an earthy red shade.
This year, Pantone has taken a turn and reached for the stars. Our design pallets have been electrified with what we think is a daring, playful, and yet still workably sophisticated choice. To say the least, we’re excited. For a glimpse into some of the past year’s shades, check out our post on Pantone C0lor of the Year 2015 – Marsala
About 2018’s Pantone Color of the Year
Paralleling the vastness of our cosmos, Ultra Violet suggests a link to what lies ahead, and to that which we can only dare to know. Historically, shades of purple have been attributed to the mystical, the spiritual, and to higher states of social status. In more recent years, the color has become a statement of uniqueness and unconformity. Used by many contemporary artists who stood out for their individuality, the color became synonymous with emotion, depth, and experimentation.
You might just be able to guess some of the names that helped it carry its legacy, as their public personas were infused with the emotion that shades of violet carried. To no surprise, Prince, Jimi Hendrix, and David Bowie forefronted the counterculture of the 70’s and 80’s, thus launching the significance of shades of purple to new generations.
Pantone Color Selections: Why Ulta Violet Made the Cut
Original picture supplied by Pantone.com
The eccentric talents of the late twentieth-century music scene solidified violet’s connection to creativity and the pushing of boundaries. The color is a strong symbol of the counterculture and creative outlets, and yet it still holds its longstanding pull to human energy and connection. It’s commonly found in meditative areas and other mindfulness practices, where its calming hues are used as a way to sooth the mind and escape an over-stimulated life. Violet holds a balance between these meanings by standing for the pursuing of a world beyond our own. It inspires, drives, and questions. It can be found both when we look into ourselves, and when we look up at the sky. It has historically symbolized our desires, and so the Ultra Violet will continue to inspire us throughout 2018 and beyond. To read more on this year’s color and the history and significance of their annual color selection, see Pantone’s original posts on the Pantone Color of the Year 2018.
How We Use Hues of Purple
Treasure Box Kids Daisy Organza Dress
We want to say we hopped on this trend the second Pantone made it official, but the truth is we did one better. We didn’t wait for Pantone to tell us that purple was in. Our girls Capri and dress lines have long since implemented shades of hues in their prints because we recognize that despite its mature history, it’s hard to deny that purple can still be light, playful, and feminine. We believe that little girls should be able to express themselves through their clothes, and so in our collections, we try to provide an array of color shades for every preference and style. Our Daisy Organza Dress and Purple Butterfly Capri Pant Set are some of our most notable pieces that accentuate the versatility of purple, and we plan on continuing to infuse our lines with the color in the rest of 2018 and on. This year’s Pantone Color works for us.

Treasure Box Kids will give these women jobs with substance, in order to economically develop them. This will help them protect themselves and their families from human traffickers.
The Designer Girl party will also give back to the local economy by using only local seamstresses to create these 10 lucky girl’s designs. Give your little girl a magical memory while helping people in need. Register your young designer’s spot at the Designer Girl Party Here.

The popular pattern, polka dots, have seemingly been around forever. The pattern has been spotted (no pun intended) as early as 1867 on Flamenco dancers, depicted in the paintings of Fredric Bazille and in the 1920’s collection of Carolina Ferrera. The term polka dots was first used in Godey’s Lady’s Book in its 1857 issue. It’s assumed the popular European dance the Polka is where the pattern received the origin of its name.

The Start of Polka Dots
The girls polka dot dress trend exploded in the 1950’s. The trend was seen on fashionable celebrities to housewives. The pattern gave its female wearers a look of wholesome femininity with a dash of girlishness. The popularity of the pattern tapered off at the end of this era. The trend never really disappears but rather casually shows up each decade with a new twist.

Polka Dots Use in Current Fashion
Although this ageless trend is mostly synonymous with children’s clothing, the patterns popularity has made its return to the adult fashion world. The trend has found its way back to high fashion in top lines like Marc by Marc Jacobs and a signature look on the likes of Fashionista Alexa Chung. European Childrenswear designers have already opted in to the craze and American Childrenswear designers are sure to do the same. Don’t be surprised over the sudden influx of this playful pattern on shoes, accessories and apparel in your favorite children’s stores in the upcoming season.

What Does Wearing Polka Dots Print Say about you?
Statistics show that little girls and women alike adore the fabric. Although in recent years the print has become more popular in Men’s fashion, it’s not as popular as it is with females. Scientifically, the reason girls polka dot dresses are such a big hit is because visually girls tend to respond towards attention to detail. This is why the kaleidoscope of rounded dots in various sizes is extra appealing. Believe it or not studies show that lively and energetic people tend to gravitate to the fabric and are wonderful multi-taskers.
