Chasing Fireflies

 About Chasing Fireflies

Chasing Fireflies was created to celebrate childhood, as well as parenthood. Do you remember the first time you ever rode a bike, or had ice cream for dinner? Sure, it was fun when you did it; but, as parents, it’s way more fun to experience your child’s “firsts” with them. They’ve taken great care in selecting magical children’s products that are sure to charm, surprise and delight your child (and you!).

There are so many words to describe Chasing Fireflies Fancy Holiday Party Dress. 

Stunning… Sophisticated… Show stopping… Perfection…

 … just to list a few. 

This dress literally has it all. Its ballerina-esque form, with layers upon layers of tulle-trimmed pettiskirts, makes it an ideal dress for dancing and twirling the night away – as every little girl loves to do in a new dress! The ruby knit short sleeve bodice boasts a gorgeous, intricate black velvet pattern; it also sits perfectly at the waist with a matching belt. The black taffeta skirt is sprinkled ever so lightly with non-shedding glitter that glistens in just the right light, and falls effortlessly over top of the layers of black and ruby feather-like tulle. 

(Note: the Fancy Holiday Party Dress is designed to fall slightly below the knee. It is shown, here, worn in a larger size – looking just as great at ankle length!)

This gorgeous dress comes complete with a lush faux-fur black collar that ties in the front with a silk bow. Your little girl will not want to take this amazing dress off. It’s perfect for parties, winter dances, concerts, photos with Santa – you name it! With intricate detailing, high quality materials and thoughtful design, this dress is truly something special.

The Black Tailored Mod Suit by Appaman is as classic as it gets; it still has a fitted, modern look that makes this suit truly timeless. With impeccable detailing, the highest quality materials and thoughtful design, this suit is the only one you’ll ever want for your little guy. 

This mod suit boasts notched lapels, a beautifully lined coat and vest with the Appaman logo and red detailing, 3 welt pockets and a back vent. The pants are fitted to perfection with a back adjustable waistband, belt loops and a zip fly. Paired with a fitted, versatile white dress shirt and a burgundy velvet adjustable bow tie, your little man’s attire will put the iconic Gene Kelly to shame.

Complete your little man’s look with a pair of fine leather monk strap dress shoes. These shoes are as cool as they are comfortable; and with a hidden grippy tab closure, even the littlest of strapping young men can put them on themselves. The leather monk strap shoes look perfect with a full suit or a casual pair of jeans and sweater, so your little stud can wear these long after the holidays.

JELLY THE PUG

About Jelly The Pug

Jelly the Pug has uniquely been outfitting girls since 2007, when mom Diane McAllister decided to try her hand at making little girls’ dresses. Her outfits were so whimsical, unique, and girly, that it didn’t take long before her designs were in high demand by other moms. Diane began traveling to trade shows to showcase her apparel; and her trusty pug, named Jelly, became her loyal travel companion. Jelly soon established a large fan base that drew mobs of little girls to Diane’s booth; and so it only seemed fit to name the company after the beloved pet dog. The brand Jelly the Pug was named straight from the mouths of its tiniest customers.

Product

Once again, the style and flare that accompanies any piece from Jelly The Pug stands out from the rest based on its uniqueness, teamed with impeccable quality. The Christmas Collection is adorable, with traditional festive colors of reds and greens; but also features some amazing selections that mix in her favorite colors of bright pinks and teals.

Little Edge Threads

About Little Edge Threads

The trendy edginess and fashion-forward children’s clothing that comes from Little Edge Threads started with a reunited friendship between two moms, Marci Mollins and Katie Pardus. After nearly a decade of being apart, these two native Californians came together; and with their love of affordable fashion for kiddos and their backgrounds in the fashion industry, Little Edge Threads was formed. This online boutique offers some of the most eclectic, on trend, and stylishly comfortable apparel for girls and boys, along with accessories fit for fashionistas and little hipster dudes.

Product

If you want your children’s holiday wardrobe looks to go beyond the big box stores, with a splash of uniqueness and some glitter thrown in, then Little Edge Threads is just for you.

Their Blingin’ Black Party Dress, complete with an oversized satin back bow and a separate black slip dress for layering (and for wearing on its own come summer!), is a girly take on the classic holiday dress. With countless sparkles, layers of tulle, and sheer fabrics, your little mini will be stealing the show at every Christmas event in this little black number.

Top off her stylish ensemble with a Glitter + Gold Crossbody Bag, perfect for stashing her party essentials (lollipops and My Little Pony figurines, anyone?). Covered in gold glitter with a tassel accent, and featuring a single snap closure for little hands, this envelope-style bag will make any party dress shine just a little bit brighter. 

Little Edge Threads brings boys a bit of an unconventional look for the holidays; which they will love, because what little boy likes being confined to a stuffy dress shirt and tie? Toss on the Likeable Layers Vest over a short-sleeve tee, or for a dressier look, a comfortable long-sleeve button up; and save the slacks for another time – a dark wash jean can give just as classy a look, with more comfort and playability. This cotton vest, with a single button closure, gray layered lapel, and split tuxedo back, dresses up any outfit in a trendy way.

Pairing well with the Likeable Layers Vest is the Dapper Derby Hat – a black, wool, classic style bowler derby hat that will complete any holiday (or everyday) outfit. Your kids can have double the fun, as this hat looks great on both boys and girls.

About Pediped

The company Pediped was founded after one mom discovered that barefoot walking was the best form of walking for healthy little feet. After searching high and low for a shoe that was not only stylish, but also mimicked that of the bare foot, Angela and Brian Edgeworth took matters into their own hands and made it their mission to build a shoe with the support of a soft leather sole and unbeatable style to match. With high quality leather, eco-friendly materials, and fine craftsmanship, Pediped was one of the first children’s shoe companies to earn the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development.

Whether he’s playing “Cowboys and Indians” in the backyard or helping you feed the animals, every little boy deserves a nice pair of cowboy boots.

Much like the similarly styled Quantum Crepe boots for men, the Heritage Crepe in Distressed Brown is a top-of-the line crepe sole for kids; perfectly designed to encourage the spirit of future rodeo pros, ranch hands and cowboys. This boot provides lightweight cushioning that lasts, and 4LR technology that supports, stabilizes, and cushions your child’s foot as it moves. Furthermore, the Pro Crepe® outsole contains a rubber blend that provides the best wear resistance found in a Western crepe sole. Even better, you don’t have to worry about your child outgrowing this boot as Wiggle Room technology provides just enough growth room to last. 

For your stylish cowgirl, we love the Heritage Western X Toe boot in Vintage Cedar. Sharp X-toe styling, premium leather and the edgy triad design give these sassy boots a sharp, “New West” attitude.

Livie & Luca

About Livie & Luca

Inspired by a pair of hand-made shoes, combined with the purpose to spread joy, Mitzi Rivas brought Livie & Luca’s first collection into the world in 2005. When her close friend, Amie Garcia, saw that first pair of shoes, she fell in love and wanted to give them to her own children and to others. As a teacher, Amie strove to make a difference in children’s lives, and she knew that through these beautiful shoes, that purpose would continue.

Livie & Luca’s mission has always been based on these values – to spread joy and to make a difference through the creation of comfortable and whimsical shoes and to do meaningful work in which their products positively affect the lives of others. The guiding idea behind Livie & Luca is that they sell more than just shoes; and this idea has proven to be the key to their success.
