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.
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 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.
