It's no secret that I love the globally-inspired children's fashions offered by Tea Collection, who has been offering clothing for girls, boys, and women long before my first child was even born. In fact, Tea Collection is currently celebrating a full decade of fashion with their Tenth Anniversary Collection. My personal weakness is the many girls' dresses Tea Collection designs in such pretty prints. Pairing them with leggings allows my daughter to wear these comfortable dresses without worrying about being active both in school and on the playground. I especially like how these short-sleeved dresses can be layered with a long-sleeved layering tee and leggings in the fall and winter and can be worn alone, with bike shorts, or with capri leggings during the balmier months.
Here are the six new girls' dresses introduced in honor of Tea Collection's 10th Anniversary . . .
Tea Collection Sumi Floral Dress - $35.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. The Sumi Floral dress had its debut in the Japanese-inspired part of our Fall 2007 collection. Inspired by a brilliantly bold and graphic hand-crafted Japanese textile. We brought it back in a classic wrapneck knit style dress. You're sure to be a classic in it.
Tea Collection Butterfly Dot Dress - $29.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. This flurry of red butterflies on a field of blue dots made its debut with our Fall 2009 Japan inspired collection. Brought back in a favorite flutter sleeve silhouette.
Tea Collection Hanji Floral Wrap Dress - $45.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. The Hanji Floral dress debuted in Destination: Korea in Spring 2010. Inspired by handmade decorative Korean paper. We brought it back in its original printed poplin wrap style dress with side tie closure. Be an original!
Tea Collection Sanga Dress - $29.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. The Sanga Dress first debuted in Destination: West Africa in Spring 2008. Inspired by Mali motifs and hand-dyed textiles, the dotted swirls print is sure to become a favorite all over again.
Tea Collection Floral Vine Dress - $29.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. The Floral Vine Dress debuted in Spring 2007 in our Turkey-inspired collection. It was inspired by decorative sixteenth century Iznik pottery, named for the town in western Anatolia where it was made. Its delicate floral pattern comes to life in style and grace on this pretty printed knit dress in a favorite flutter sleeve silhouette.
Tea Collection Kasato Stripe Dress - $45.00
Part of our special 10th anniversary collection. The Kasato Stripe Dress first debuted in Destination: Brazil in Spring 2009. It has a nautical flavor and is named for the steamer ship that brought Japanese immigrants to Brazil in 1908.
Which dress is your favorite? I especially like the Butterfly Dot Dress since I have a soft spot for the color red.
