Stylish Baby Easter Dresses
for Picture-Perfect Egg Hunting Adventures

baby easter dresses swanky

There's only one boutique that makes
these gorgeous egg-hunting ensembles.
My treasure map will lead you right to it.

Let me rescue you from the hum-drum baby Easter dresses lined up at your local mega-mart. There they hang, lifeless and limp, wallowing in the saddness of assembly-line style.

As your friendly neighborhood baby fashion pirate, allow me to reveal a treasure map to the most sophisticatedly cute baby Spring dresses in 2011.

There's a New World of infant style just waiting for you to plunder.

Seriously. Consider this:

  • No tired-out-grumpy children hanging on the cart (or tired-out-grumpy mama pushing it).
  • No, like, teeny-bopper, like, glaring at you because you, like, made her stop texting to checkout.
  • Just you, tapping your fingers, gazing at some gorgeous photos, and (if you're lucky) breathing in a mug of coffee sending up swirls of steaming happiness.

So grab that giant plummed hat and a stuffed parrot! Our looting adventure for the ultimate collection of baby girl Easter dresses will sail us into some exotic ports.

We'll visit Isabella and Ferdinand in Espana...we'll break into a bargain chest or two... we'll lounge around some old favorites...we'll even fly our ship to Neverland in our quest to find adorable and affordable Spring frocks.

Let's raise the anchor of apathetic expectations and cast-off for a new paradise of Easter dresses!


P.S. After you've finished dreaming and drooling over these boutiques and finally made a decision about the baby Easter dress gracing your infant in 2011, you're going to want her picture on the wall. You've been warned. Now's the time to start saving those JCPenny Portrait coupons.

P.P.S. (Make that a double...Mother's Day is only a few short weeks away, and Grandma would love some brag-work of her own...)

The B. Swanky Boutique is just as cute as it sounds. It's a little mom-and-pop online store that specializes in designs that come straight out of their heads, which is why, you can't find them anywhere else.

They don't sell "everyday" clothes. Their collection is 100% special occasion items for holiday and birthday celebrations. Currently, they have two styles of baby girl Easter dresses available.

The first is the chick blue gingham dress seen at the top of the page. The second design is a green gingham with an embroidered bunny. Both can be personalized or monogrammed.

If you spend more than $100, you can get free shipping. (A baby Easter dress AND a birthday frock, perhaps?)

baby easter dresses tea

The Tea Collection will not provide you with tea. Instead, they gather tasteful designs from all around the world, pleasing your palette for sophistication and sturdy clothing for your budding traveler. Easter 2011 is all about Espana. These dresses give a glimpse of the Catalonia culture that makes my heart long for a visit.

Your little Dulcinea will look so charming in these pastoral frocks. If you're home is a little farther from the warm waters of the Mediterranean, may I suggest looking at their Spanish-inspired sweaters and cardigans?

Lounge around the gardens of Barcelona with these art nouveau designs.

For the abstract-art-lover, this flint colored patterned dress is designed to look like a wood cut, but it feels like soft French terry.

It looks gorgeous on an eight-year-old, and it will look gorgeous on an eight-month-old, even if she can't twirl in it yet.

The embroidery and cut of this praline-colored dress was inspired
by Casa Mila in Gaudi.
It's a passport to refinement.

This gorgeous layered rosette
from the Sweet Garden
Collection would be
perfectly paired with a light
organza cardigan.

When I think of Hartstrings, I think Hamptons. Their designs are gorgeous Hepburn-inspired creations that have just the perfect amount of whimsy.

Unlike department stores and other mass merchandisers, Hartstrings choses a fabric or pattern and then develops a whole theme of baby Easter dresses and clothing to surround those patterns. This makes coordinating outfits incredibly simple.

It's also a great help to mothers with several daughters (like myself). I can get the girls all matching, without putting them all in exactly the same dress.

  • Take an additional 20% off sitewide (no minimum!) with code HMPG20. Expires January 12th
  • 10% off everything on the website with code CJ10OFF.

  • Free shipping on orders over $75 with code CJFS75.
