There’s a fine line between flower girl dresses and pageant dresses

Alice and Olivia pink formal girls' dressRecently a reader and friend asked us about finding a flower girl dress for a little girl, hold the poofy, froofy, pageant-y thing. We referred her to favorite labels like Ses Petites Mains, Tea Collection, and the selection at Bean NY. And now there’s another option – hipster boutique label Alice + Olivia has just launched Alice + Olivia Kids.

Now that designer Stacey Bendet has her own little rugrat (congrats on little Eloise, Stacey!) she totally went to town creating slightly edgy but adorably wearable frocks for girls. This ballerina pink tank dress would look smashing on any little girls strewing posies down the aisle, or for something with a little more oomph, the vibrant silk party dress with a tulle underlay is a showstopper. Also loving the scalloped party dress if the bride can handle a little white in the wedding party.

Best of all, in clothes like these, the flower girl will never be mistaken for someone who’s “practicing her talent.” -Liz
