“Dressing up” for Thanksgiving - a real purpose

“Dressing up” for Thanksgiving - a real purpose

Every year, right around Thanksgiving, we get our gratitude speeches ready. Talking to our children about being thoughtful and appreciative of the gifts they’ve been given is an important tradition, one we hope our families never outgrow. It’s a time to think deeply about togetherness and the qualities this brings out in each of us. While sitting around the table and passing around food, the thing we wish for every year is that our kids see the love we put into this holiday and every day in general. We want them to be grateful because gratitude is a cornerstone of both goodness and happiness, and what more could we ask for them? 
Here’s something, however, that escapes us sometimes. How often do we ask ourselves if we are grateful enough? Do we think about how lucky we are to live our lives and raise the children we have? Thanksgiving is a time for us, too, to reflect on this appreciation and find ways to integrate it into our lives. One way to do this is through what seems like a simple parenting decision— dressing your child in Elephantito, especially on Thanksgiving day.

“Dressing up” serves a real purpose, even if our instinct is to think it is superficial. It shows respect for the occasion, marking it as different from other days of the year. It reminds us that it is a day for making memories, because we always like to remember ourselves looking our best. That’s because caring—about anything or anyone, including yourself— is one way to show appreciation for what you have. And the same goes for our children, too. We love their joy, sense of freedom, and all the ways in which they change, grow, and surprise us. We’re grateful to give our lives to them and we show them that by always giving them the best we can (and with Elephantito’s pricing, we make the best accessible to every parent out there). When we dress our child up in quality clothing, we crystallize them one at moment forever, create a memory to hold onto as they grow another inch, age another year. It says to them: you’re worth it. It says to them: we want you to carry this day, this dinner, in your hearts forever. It says: we hope you appreciate us— and everything— too.

When it comes to apparel for adults, we’ve gotten accustomed to the idea that the dresses, blouses, and suits we covet will always look a little more crisp and perfect on display than they will when we put them on before the mirror in the morning. That’s because most of the clothing out there for adults is designed with mannequins in mind. When it comes to Elephantito, we have a different ethos: our clothing is inspired by living, breathing children, with all their liveliness and personality. We believe that no matter how many hours we spend sketching silhouettes and looking at samples, our products will only ever be “finished” when they’re loved by a child who has made them their own. We invest in classic, timeless cuts and styles because we know that this aesthetic leaves more room for individuality than any other. It’s a bit of a running joke between us founders. We can put two lovely children in identical dresses or pants and the pieces will end up looking completely different, though united still by an aura of love, confidence, and quality.
 
We have a favor to ask of you, our favorite (all of you!) customers. It’s a fun one. Show us our finished pieces, please! Nothing makes our day more than seeing a picture of your special little someone dressed in Elephantito. On an artistic level, it means more than we can say to see our visions and designs come to fruition. And as mothers ourselves, we love to know that we are in some way part of the lives of your beautiful, bright children, facilitating their fun and their growth.

It’s pretty simple. Elephantito is a family, and developing a shared family album is the next item on our to do list.

Growing Up with Elephantito

Growing Up with Elephantito

From the start of Elephantito, we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect scenario. We were two women, passionate in the same way about quality clothing and ethical business, pouring over sample leathers and launching a factory in Peru, we were—and are—teammates united by something even greater than our ambitions: our two daughters. Marialex and Vicky, both the same age, classmates in our local school, and best friends since they were three years old.

We knew early on they would be our muses. The well-made, comfortable, and stylish dresses, boots, and ballerina flats we were constantly seeking out for their closets became our mission statement. We watched them run outside and asked ourselves how to balance fashion and function. As they became tweens, we followed their changing style and designed head to toe outfits that were both age-appropriate and chic.

Using our imagination, hard work, and business sense to dress our daughters well will always be something we are proud of. At every birthday party, school play, or picnic, we smiled when we saw how our daughters stood out —not because their clothing was expensive or flashy, but because it was tasteful, timeless, and elegant.

Our girls looked loved. It is only now that they are getting older (teenagers!) that we understand how impactful that was for them. They carry themselves with a special confidence; they know how to invest their time and energy and make lasting choices. They also don’t compromise on their comfort and happiness for the sake of looking a certain way, because while wearing Elephantito, they had it all.

Back to School with Elephantito: Living Lessons

Back to school style is more than just a marketing ploy. It’s a chance for children to reevaluate who they are, what sort of colors and cuts  they like, and most importantly, how they want to represent themselves to classmates and teachers in the year ahead. It’s the sartorial version of a fresh-start.

Get Suri Cruise's adorable look this Spring

Get Suri Cruise's adorable look this Spring

Suri Cruise's fashion game is enviable. We all love to see the pictures of her out enjoying New York with her equally fashionable mom Katie Holmes. This adorable girl has the best flats in the land, so much so that I'm dying for my own adult version of her shoe closet. Considering this, it's no surprise that for this month's fashion inspiration we would go way back into the archive and choose this beautiful look to recreate with a fresh new take that's fitting for the warmer weather that is awaiting us this Spring.

 The Love Red Smocked Dress currently on sale for $50.40 features a round piece with Piping accent in the neckline and is lightweight.

The real show stopper here are Suri's beautiful and versatile silver ballet flats. At Elephantito, we have the perfect pair to complete this look. The French Ballet Flats in silver for $73.00, give this dress just enough glitz, wouldn't you say?

These beautiful pieces are one of a kind and made at our factory in Peru and go perfectly with Suri's relaxed yet elegant style. Something we think she get's from her impeccably dressed momma.

Stay tuned for more celebrity inspired look recreations.
