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.

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.
How Treasure Box Kids Sources Sustainable, Quality Fabric
Every season, Treasure Box Kids sources materials from fabric shows across the U.S. Our visits are a crucial part of our outfit creation process, as 100 percent of the fabric used in our clothing is bought domestically. This tradition began when we started to manufacture our own clothing. Going to fabric shows not only gives us an up close and personal view of the materials for our lines, but more importantly allows us to scout out local vendors whose production standards line up with the ethics of our manufacturing process.
What Treasure Box Kids Keeps in Mind at Fabric Shows
Fabric comes first.
We craft an outfit around a pattern or texture, so the foundation of our designs is the material we use. An overall quality textile is what we look for, and if they are certified organic it adds big points.
The feel of a fabric is pivotal. We spend a lot of time making sure that the samples we consider would feel soft, comfortable and wearable
Additional qualities we keep in mind are the fabric’s care instructions, how much shrinkage to expect and its weight. Hard to find, unique trims that meet our standards are our goal, and we are often surprised with what we find on our journey.
At our last fashion show, we came across an Eco Twill fabric. This material combines organic cotton and recycled plastic, thus reducing landfill waste with its production. We were impressed with the supplier’s commitment to sustainability, and we are now actively stocking up.
Using renewable fabric is new to us, but is becoming a trend we hope to soon make timeless.

How Fabric Shows Fuel a Treasure Box Kids Passion
At a number of these shows, seminars on textile production are offered. We seize these opportunities to further educate ourselves and are often pleasantly surprised by the new information we find. Through these classes, we’ve learned new dying techniques, why certain types of threads are used for fabrics and many more bits of knowledge that we can then apply into our sourcing tactics.
Learning about these things only compliments our love for design. How fabric can shape an outfit by color, trim, and style is our driving inspiration in clothing creation. In our outfits, you’ll find a variety of color and textures because playing with the feel of clothes to help them reach their full potential is a Treasure Box Kids passion.
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.

Get excited, kids fashion trends are being taken straight from the big kid runway. It doesn’t matter if you still have a bedtime or if you’re the one making that bedtime; if you’re fashionably inclined, you know how important it is to stay up to date with the times. Lucky for us, this year’s selection is more than just florals. We’ve been served trends and colors that are bold, bright, and full of expression.
To find this season’s most noteworthy trends, we’ve combined our own fashion knowledge with some words straight from the pro’s themselves: Pantone, Fashion Snoops, and Earnshaw’s. To read more about color trends and this year’s thematic palette, check out our post on the 2018 Color of The Year: Ultra Violet.

Prints and Fabrics: Kids Fashion Trends for Almost Any Spring Occasion
Now that we’ve had a taste of the season’s colors, let’s dive into the looks and textures our palettes are comprising. Fashion Snoops and UBM Fashion feature a dazzling selection of kids ensembles and weather-appropriate apparel that we’re rushing to add to our mood boards. From chic safari to a gardening in The Hamptons, they’ve lined up looks that will have a place in almost any kid-friendly occasion.
Yes, we said to expect more than florals, but the season of new beginnings can never be complete without some blossoming. Still staying true to individuality, pattern mixing and kitschy details are embroidering our kid’s clothes dreams.
Florals, fruits, and gingham styles never fail. Pairing them up with classic ruffles, tulle, or even lace detailing will add to the aww-factor.
Taking a step south, we’re getting ready for the heat. Hot summer nights don’t necessarily always stay in the summer, as we Florida folks know all too well. Whether it’s for a desert sunset or an Everglades sunset, we know the importance of a good tailoring.
Find twill, beaded trims and light knitwear where the sun keeps shining, and happily embrace the comfort of a vibrantly earthy tone.
Now, we can’t talk about blooming without talking overalls. This time, take a step back and retreat into the forest. Know nature, know a good, breathable linen. Even bring back the smock dress! You know your little girl would look adorable in it.
Keep your eyes out for cotton, basket weave, and twill. Think arts and crafts camp.
Accessories in kids fashion trends
As if we hadn’t already stressed self-expression enough, we’re ending this season’s trend list with a shout-out to Earnshaw’s Magazine and an homage to the holy grail: Accessories.
According to the publication, a unique jewelry set or a fun, pop-of-color handbag can wrap up any outfit, so it’s no surprise that finding these classic staples in a new shape or material is what’s we’re embracing. Try a holographic fabric, perhaps some metallic denim and even grab that unicorn-shaped backpack for a bold look that will rule the school and make it known that you’re up to date with kids fashion trends.
