We are working very hard to get together our Spring Line for The Preppy Little Dress!

I know all of you mom's that have boys should be excited about this. Keep posted and we will bring you more pictures of what's to come!

I wanted to update everyone on the latest of what is going on with me and The Preppy Little Dress....

After three long weeks of sickness and fatigue I feel like I am finally coming out on the other side. I still have a doctors visits next week but feel hopeful that whatever is ailing me is gone and that things will go back to normal for myself and my family. It figures that I would get sick during the busiest time in The Preppy Little Dress history. Thank you to everyone who has been so patient during this time.

The Preppy Little Dress is having a great fall and we are looking forward to many up coming shows. We will be at the Merry Market Saturday October 24th and Jingle Jubilee Nov. 13-15th in Tallahassee, FL. Also, if you are looking for a rep near you please email us via our website and we will be happy to let you know where you can see PLD in your area.

If you have emailed me and I have not gotten back with you I am so sorry. I have had to take time off unexpectedly. However, I will be emailing and returning phone calls this weekend and early next week.

I am excited to announce the arrival of our new intern Rebecca! She is a student at Florida State University and a fashion design major. Rebecca is also a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority and is a real go getter! She will be handling some of the day to day operations of PLD as long as helping us design our new Spring Line. We are thrilled Rebecca is joining us!

If you have not already... please go onto Linley Paske's Photography website. She is amazing and we LOVE working with her! My girls are featured all over her blog (

I had the most amazing weekend and had to share with all of you the pictures! I have the great fortune to work with a wonderful photographer who is as equally professional as she is creative! Linley Paske has been shooting families all over Tallahassee and the Panhandle for the past several years and is now gearing up her business in a big way. The Preppy Little Dress is teaming up with Linley to bring you the full fall line... please stay tuned for that! However, over the past weekend I hosted a Sip & See and invited our friends, church and community for everyone to come and see what was new with The Preppy Little Dress. Here are a few of the amazing shots that Linley got of one little customer. Little Sarah Katherine brought along her, mother, grandmother and great grandmother to shop. What a cute model she makes. Thank you to everyone who supports our Clothes for a Cause! We had a record weekend! Watch out Jill... we might need two crates for the dresses to Uganda.

New Fall Dress Release

Abbie is going to be wearing it to her first day of school with her name monogrammed on it so that her teachers can remember her name. If you would like to order this dress please stop by Grammy and Gee or call us at #850-491-7023 and we can take your order over the phone. *Linden Belcher is the special little girl that inspired this dress. Isn't she cute!!

Cute Customer!

I just found out this morning that one of our Preppy Little Dress customers (who is 4 years old, by the way) loved her custom PLD dress so much that she had to wear it for 3 days straight! Her mom kept doing laundry every night so she could wear it again and again. (What a great MOM!) So needless to say Kathy came in to get another one and one more for her other daughter. They are so cute and I just know they are going to love their new Preppy Little Dresses!

PLD goes to Michigan

My friend Lisa's sister just got married last weekend in Michigan (Congrats Laura and Drew) and for the occasion Lisa had a Preppy Little Dress made for her daughter Linden for the rehearsal. We love this dress so much that we are putting it in our fall line. We think it will be the perfect back to school dress as it bares apples all over it. Stay tuned for a full picture of the newest Linden dress.

The Pictures are Up!

You can now preview some of the pictures that we took on Sunday for The Preppy Little Dress. We love them! All of our little models in their pillowcase dresses could not look cuter!!! I am so impressed with Catherine and Ashley of Woodland Fields Photography. They got shots that I didn't even think of but really needed. Even though it was 95 degrees out and we had a lot of kids they captured every look. It was so hot out that after all of the children left Hudson & Abbie got down to their skivvies and jumped in the pool. What a great day!
Thank you to the Haley, Eikenburg, Thumm, Leger and Tuten families.

Photo Shoot

The Preppy Little Dress had it's first photo shoot yesterday and it was fantastic! I have some amazing friends who's families happily gave up their Sunday afternoon to help me out. (Including a friend and super MOM who just had her third baby a week and a half ago, Thank you Tonya!) It was hot and crazy but all of the girls looked really great in their Preppy Little Dress and it could not have gone better. I have to thank the girls of Woodland Fields Photography who were able to organize the chaos and get the most amazing pictures. (They are both so creative.) I will keep everyone posted as soon as we get the pictures up where you can see them.

First Preppy Little Dress Customer

Cari came into Grammy and Gee to look for a dress for her daughter to wear at her up coming photo shoot. That morning was the first time I had put out our new line, The Preppy Little Dress. Cari thought this dress would be the perfect thing for her daughters outdoor pictures and I have to agree. SHE IS SO DARN CUTE! Since then we have sold more dresses than we ever thought we would in such a short time. Thanks Cari for being a trend setter. We love her in her Preppy Little Dress.

Now OPEN! Yeah!

We are so thrilled to be announcing that The Preppy Little Dress is now open! YEAH!! This has been a world wind and we are so excited about all the possibilities that this dress line has. In case you haven't heard of what we are and who we help, here it is....

We are a children's pillowcase dress line that helps children in Uganda and for every dress you buy we will donate a dress in you or your child's honor. We specialize in unique pre-made and custom made dresses from sizes 3 months to 12 years. The possibilities are endless and we hope that you will use your creativity to create the perfect dress for your little one in your life.
