The Holly Pre Order is LIVE

Posted by

It may not look like Christmas where you are, but it has been looking like Christmas around the Ivory Pony for quite a while! We have been painstakingly perfecting our designs and we are SO proud of the outcome! Our preorder is LIVE, and all preorders are guaranteed. Due to the intricacy of this dress, we have very limited stock. The dresses should be in our hands and ready to ship straight to you the first week of November, just in time for Christmas card photos!

The Holly is named after our magnificent lead designer, Holly! Holly's creativity is boundless and she pays such close attention to every single detail. From the weight of the skirt, to the type and size of the buttons, Holly would not settle for anything less than perfection from this dress. The shadow embroidery is so delicate and beautiful. We loved the traditional feel of it, especially the bows woven through the berries and leaves. The layered colors and ruffles reminded us of dresses that used to make us feel so beautiful as little girls--and what little girl doesn't love a big sash!? We wanted this dress to be timeless and classic, yet reflect innocence and youth. Christmas is a time of childlike faith, and we wanted our little ones to look like little girls during this season that celebrates their childhood. 

One hard decision that we had to make during the design process was to eliminate the smaller, baby girl sizes. After several attempts, we decided that the integrity of the embroidery was lost when we tried to shrink it to fit the 6 and 12 month sizes. We hate not to offer a full range of sizes, but also hate to put forth a product that does not truly reflect the quality that we demand from our designs. Your little lady might be able to make the smallest size, an 18 month, work by pulling tight the sash. We do not like to disappoint our customers so we will be offering a more "baby" styled outfit tailored to our younger fans next year! Stay tuned! Having to cut the smaller sizes did, however, allow us to expand the sizing of this dress, so we are offering it through a size 8. 

We feel that the Holly dress is perfect for any and every holiday occasion--from pictures with Santa, cookie swaps, and Christmas Eve Mass, your little doll will be the best dressed by far! Just add the right shoes to dress it up or down. Even though it is short sleeved, it looks great with a layering tee underneath or a simple cardigan over the top yet under the ruffled sleeves. Add some simple tights underneath and maybe a great pea coat on top and your little princess will be prepared for Christmas, no matter the weather!

We are also proud to offer you our first boy option--the Holly boy's button down. On it's own or paired with the Holly dress as a sister set, this shirt is quite versatile. We intend for this shirt to both stand alone or to be dressed up under a under a blazer or with a tie or bow tie for dressier events. There are big plans on the horizon for future boy outfits--hope you are excited!

As always, thank you so much for your support of our little company. We are truly humbled by your enthusiasm and appreciate all of your kind words and encouragement!
