It’s that time of year again! Jr. League shows have started and Orient Expressed has hit the road. Most recently, we went to Lafayette, Louisiana to the Tinsels and Treasures show. Stacy, Sharla, Dabney, Anna, and Leila had fun selling (and playing) in Acadiana! We’re also traveling to several more Jr. Leagues this Fall. Come see us at:
Baton Rouge Hollydays: October 24th – 27th
Jackson Mistletoe Marketplace: November November 7th – 10th
Houston Nutcracker Market: November 7th – 11th
Austin Christmas Affair: November 14th – 18th
When you work at Orient Expressed you never know what the day will hold. It might be a day filled with screaming and giggling children at a photo shoot, packing orders, or even unpacking new merchandise! Yesterday we had an impromptu dress up party with Stacy in preparation for Halloween!
Our retail store in New Orleans just received tons of new Halloween goodies and we had a little fun with them . . .
Stacy was a great sport as we adorned her with all the trappings of a witch – complete with hat, gloves, and spidery apron!
Keep up with more new items on our Retail Facebook!
Orient Expressed is known for making cute children’s clothing, but we are venturing into tween fashion as well! Many of our models are kids of employees, relatives, or friends. As they grow we are growing with them! It’s been a lot of fun dressing up and getting sassy with these girls!
Psst! There’s also a tween SALE going on! CLICK HERE!

Just a quick update on Orient Expressed and Hurricane Isaac. We’ve weathered the storm with just one broken window. At the moment we still don’t have any power, but keep your fingers crossed! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers! Here are just a few pictures taken by various members of the Orient Expressed family of what it’s like in New Orleans this week:
Sharla took some more pictures of damage around town yesterday:
Orient Expressed will be up and running as soon as we have power restored and your Hurricane Sale orders will be making their way to you!

Monday morning we had the pleasure of hanging out with two sweet girls – Maddie and Maddie! “Big” Maddie is two and “Little” Maddie is 12 months old. Big Maddie showed up to our little photo shoot asking to meet her “sister” Maddie. I suppose in a two year old’s mind having the same name is the equivalent of being related! 🙂 But it was great preparation because any day now she will really become a big sister! We’re all waiting anxiously to find out if it’s a girl or a boy!
Maddie and Maddie (or Maddie Squared as I like to call them) were so excited to don winter coats, even though in New Orleans August is still sweltering. They loved pretending it was cold outside despite the heat.
Is it Christmas time yet? We certainly wish that it was, but until then we can pretend! It’s Holiday dress up time with some cool nutcrackers, or soldiers as Big Maddie insists they are called.

And last but not least, someone shows a little curiosity in the photographic process:
Stay tuned for more funny photo shoots and don’t forget to follow us on
One of the greatest joys of clothing children is getting to see our garments being passed down from generation to generation. Nine year old Julia was a photo contest winner for our catalog years ago in her pink smocked bishop. Now she’s passed it on to her cousin, Caroline, who is one. It’s so flattering to see our clothing being turned into a family heirloom. Thank you so much, Tara for sending us this gem!

Happy Thursday, everyone! We’re moving right along this week. Found Leslie in the monogramming department this morning. She’s working on one lucky little gal’s Christmas dress. And Brittany is working on – can you believe it – the Spring 2013 collection! Can’t wait to start sharing some of those new styles with you asap! Are there any designs you would like to see from us next Spring?
