Get To Know Your Favorite Kids Clothing Designer: Jelly The Pug

1. Your name, brand name and location:

2. Describe your brand in 3 words:
Colors, prints, ruffles

3. Tell us a little bit more about your brand, what makes it special?
What makes Jelly the Pug special is the care we put into every dress. There is no editing when it comes to ruffles and trim. I create every dress myself in my attic with Jelly at my feet.

4. How did it all start?
It started as a way to supplement my family's  income.  I always loved sewing and creating things. I made a few dresses and put them online. I was swamped with orders in a matter of months. I decided to sell my car to finance getting this business off my kitchen table. I met Adnan in a chance encounter while selling my car. We met in a small coffee shop and noticed people stop eating to look at my samples. We decided to join forces. We rolled the dice and gambled everything and took a huge leap of pure faith. We figured it as we went.

5. Where did the name come from?
The name came from my little Pug named Jelly. In the beginning, I would make everything my hand on my kitchen table. I would sell them on online and cart them every weekend to outdoor events like church shows and fairs. I would always have Jelly with me in a little basket. Little girls would look forward to seeing Jelly every weekend. I became known as the Jelly the Pug lady.  

6. What inspires you? How do you get ideas for your designs and keep them fresh?
The little girls who wear our clothes inspire me. I want them to feel confident and special. I love colors and mixing patterns.

7. What are your top priorities when designing clothing (shoes/accessories)?
My top priority is keeping dress and print designs unique and fresh. We work everyday to upgrade our quality in every aspect of Jelly the Pug. I search endlessly for new textile designers and
make every dress sample by hand.

8. What is your favorite season to design for and why?
Spring and Summer are my favorite. The creative ideas are endless and there are less constraints on design.

9. Where do you see your brand in a few years?
We listen to all your ideas and input. We are working on Mommy and me and even denim.

10.  If there was one thing you could tell your customers (kids or adults), what would it be? I would like to tell all our customers that I value everyone of you. I am honored when you choose a Jelly The Pug dress for a special event. I want to thank every one of you for making a dream come true for me.

Every season, Jules and Emma get a couple of Jelly The Pug dresses. They wear them mostly to birthday parties, family outings or as play dresses. I love that Jelly The Pug dresses are made of tear-and-wear-resistant fabric, so they hold up really well. They are very easy to wash and do not fade. No matter how many times I wash them and put them in the drier, they always look brand new! Jelly The Pug runs pretty generous, so I  size down for our girls who are average for their age.

Persnickety Clothing Nob Hill Collection

Persnickety Clothing Ruby Dress In Black Dot with
Persnickety Clothing long sleeve Basic Tee In Cream Mesh
and lace cuffs in cream
Welcome to Persnickety Clothing Nob Hill collection! It is a fresh new line with a totally different pallet of colors for Fall and Winter. Persnickety Clothing vintage-inspired Nob Hill collection is so fun to "play with" - to mix and match boutique girls clothing pieces and accessories to create a truly unique posh look for your little girl you love and adore. Persnickety Clothing used black as a grounding color to provide a dramatic effect for this stunning collection. Then, they freshened it up with a soft pink color, shades of brown, cream, gold and lots of fun textures. Persnickety Clothing Nob Hill collection is perfect for holiday parties, family pictures or even everyday wear.

When you are shopping Persnickety Clothing Nob Hill collection, make sure to grab a few of these must-have pieces. At the top of the list is Persnickety Clothing Lucille dress in cream which plays perfectly into the holidays! It is simple, yet elegant. It is comfortable enough for everyday wear and lovely enough for fancy occasions. We love the large bow that adorns the front. Please note that this season Lucille dress runs longer and a tad wider than in previous seasons.

Another two pieces to notice are Persnickety Clothing Palazzo pant in black paired with Lou Lou top in black dot. This combo has been on pretty much every Persnickety Clothing Nob Hill order we have received since last night. It is comfy, yet very stylish, unique and dressy enough to be worn for special occasions.

Persnickety Clothing Lola top in black has been very popular as well. It will match so many of Persnickety Nob Hill pieces as well as complete other outfits in your girl's wardrobe.

Finally, take a notice of stunning Persnickety Clothing Cassie dress in black. The mixture of the polka dots, the browns, the blacks, and the peachy pinks make this beautiful dress so elegant! It is sleeveless, so it can be easily carried over into spring and worn as a tunic top. Pair it with Persnickety Clothing long sleeve Basic Tee In Cream Mesh and lace cuffs in cream for a complete look.

We have recently received an email from Persnickety Clothing informing us that some of the items from fall 2013 collection have been delayed. Please review the following information carefully to see if some of the items you have ordered will be arriving later than originally expected.

From Persnickety Clothing company's email to retailers:

"This year, with an increased need for manufacturing power, we decided to try something new. It was our choice to outsource the production of 3 pieces to a company in Peru. We went with Peru because of their strong showing in quality of samples and overall efficiency of production. While we expect this to hold true in the final pieces, the fabric sent to them was held in customers for two months, and has caused delays all down the line. These have been pushed back for a release date in October and are listed below:

Persnickety Clothing Kennedy Jacket in Green
·         Cecile Top – Delayed until 9/5/2013 (After production, we were not 100% satisfied with one aspect of this piece, and returned it for minor alterations. We would rather experience a delay, than have product on the market we are not satisfied with.

Phase 2

·         Patchwork Dress – Delayed until 8/27/2013

·         Macie Jane Dress – Delayed until 8/27/2013

·         Corset Dress – Delayed until 9/5/2013
