The Princess Syndrome- Is Treating our Kids like a Princess will Do them more Harm than Good?

As parents you love to treat your daughter like a princess. But an article I read recently, posed a question whether parents nowadays are teaching children to be primadonnas by treating them like a princess and those little girls are growing up narcissistic and thus overspend on girls stuff.

Personally, I think it's a parenting issue on how you're rearing your daughter to be. We can always explain to our children the value of money and we can always teach them not to be materialistic. It's how as parents we convey the positive side of the princess persona -- or princess culture as this article put it.

Read more about the article here.

One thing is sure though, letting your daughters wear nice girls party dresses doesn't equate to spending huge amount of money. Check out our girls party dresses collection and be amazed of how affordable girls dresses could be.

Tips in Choosing the Right Colour Combinations for Flower girl Dresses

The use of different colours on a wedding theme is gaining popularity all over the wedding world. Nowadays, brides want their wedding to be hip, chic and upbeat. They want splashes of colours everywhere!

One perfect way to add colour to a wedding is having flower girl dresses of the same style but of different colours. Sounds easy but it could turnout otherwise if the colours are not well thought of. When done right, flower girls wearing different colors of flower girl dresses make wedding photos and wedding videos come out livelier and brighter. The key here is combining colours that complement each other. Here are some tips in choosing the right colour combinations for your flower girl dresses:

Mix and match colours depending on the season of your wedding. Winter weddings could have purple, mauve and dusty rose which is inspired by the solitary feel of the winter season. Spring weddings could have cool sea colours like Turquoise, Orange and White or get inspiration from the splashes of sunshine with Light Yellow (Aurora), Bright Blue (Amparo) and Champagne (Pink Champagne). Summer or Fall Weddings can have Corals, Burgundy and White. Earth colours such as Brown, Orange and Gray will also be nice for Fall weddings.

In truth, the colour combinations you choose for your wedding is no one’s decision but yours. It is your special day and you alone can decide which flower girl dress colors speak more about yourself and your husband.

Black Dresses for Toddlers

A little break from the love talk brought to us by the upcoming Chinese Valentine's Day on the 16th.

I would like to talk about the issue on dressing toddlers with black formal dress. Some folks (Chinese and non-Chinese) would say that it's bad luck. But is it really?

What is the basis? Tradition and customs.

I don't know really. When my teen daughter was younger, my wife tried putting on this really nice black toddler dress that she was selling that time but my Mother in law had other thoughts and a strong one at that.

How about you, do you allow your kids to wear black?

Cool and Hip Way to Celebrate Chinese Valentine's Day

One of the sweetest and coolest way of spending Chinese Valentine's day is treating your love one/s to your frozen yogurt store or if you are a bit braver, why not gobble a good serving of mixed (tepanyaki style) ice cream.

And at night, share dreams and sweet nothings while star gazing and surprise her with a bouquet of flowers before calling it a day.

For high quality and affordable girls chinese dresses, visit us at www.elitedresses.com and celebrate Chinese Valentine's Day with style.

Chinese Valentine's Day or Qixi Festival

Chinese Valentine's Day is also known as Qixi Festival (means The Nights of Sevens) or sometimes Magpie festival. It is celebrated by the Chinese every seventh day of the seventh month on the Chinese calendar. This is not a public holiday in China but it's very popular to the young ones.

This year, the celebration falls on April 16, 2010. And although most of those who participate it are young people, they still do traditional practices such as ladies carving melons and then wishes for a good husband. The ladies also do the needle test wherein they put a needle on a water and when it stays afloat is means that the lady is matured and is ready for marriage. On this day, lovers go to a temple of Matchmaker and pray for a happy and loving relationship or marriage.

Chinese Valentine's Day is also know as The Daughter’s Festival, The Festival to Plead for Skills, The Seventh Sister’s Birthday, The Night of Skills
mainly because on earlier times, ladies are said to wear their finest traditional Chinese dresses and showcase their domestic skills like carving, cooking, baking, quilting so men would know how they will be as wives. On modern times, this showing of skills had waned off because most young couples are open to shared domestic duties.

So what's your Chinese Valentine's story?

US Schools are Using Girls Chinese Dresses More

I have noticed that even non-Chinese schools in the US are starting to embrace the Chinese culture by celebrating Chinese theme events and celebrating major Chinese Festivals.

This August, 2 Chinese Festivals are lined up. It's Chinese Valentine's Day on August 16 and on August 24, it's Hungry Ghost Festival (or the All Soul's Day counterpart).

So in the coming days expect that I will be posting more about these nice Chinese festival and how Chinese celebrate them and of course why.

But for now let me just say that buying your kids' Chinese costume as early as this week will never hurt when the Chinese dresses prices are still low and on sale ;)

To give you an idea, the best seller color for my Chinese dresses are Hot pink and Purple Chinese Traditional Dresses.

Short Survey on Girls Black Flower Girl Dress

Please take time answering the survey. It's very short and no registration required. Just tick your answer and you are done!


Back to School Dress Guide

By this time you might be looking for deals for back to school dresses and other back to school essentials. Before you head out, here are few things to guide you while you shop for your daughter's back to school dress. We know that the kids want to go back to school with a dress that rocks but make sure it's rocking the dress code too. Best way to do this is to go to your child's school or check your school district website and re-read the dress code.
I've been also out window shopping for my teen daughter's back to school outfit but I am truly shocked to see that most of the stores want my daughter to dress like a 25 year old instead of 16! And of course not to mention that most of the dresses are either too short or too uhmmm...daring.

For little girls, stick with comfortable fabrics, light and airy. You would want them to be able to move around without sweating too much. Light colors would be okay too and even earth colors which is perfect for fall!

 Most of all, let the children keep their youth and let them enjoy ribbons and colors!

Easy Return and Easy Exchange Policy at EliteDresses

As an online shopper myself, I am familiar with the issues on purchasing items online especially if you are a first time buyer from that specific webstore. To address this, I am an advocate of an easy return and easy exchange policy to help my clients feel secure and buy with confidence (and peace of mind).

One perfect example is my recent encounter with a nice bride to be who bought flower girl dresses from me. But for some reason she has to move her wedding to a much later date and thus needed to change the sizes of the flower girl dresses she bought. It makes sense and I accept this no questions asked. :)

The bride to be needs to worry more important things and I don't want to add on to her burdens.
