Little Party Dress
Welcome to our colourful world. We’re so glad you found us. And we bet your wardrobe will be, too…
Little Party Dress is your online boutique that specialises in affordable pieces to make you feel fabulous. We curate and design unique styles that have a signature LPD twist. Think: bold prints, added sleeves, elastic waists, and… POCKETS! Plus, the styles and prints that you see here? Most of them you will only find at Little Party Dress. Nowhere else!
We tweak designs to create what you love, and what makes you feel comfortable and confident, and ready to step out the front door.
Our sizes range from 6-22 and we show our clothes on women of diverse body shapes and sizes because Queens come in all different packages – and because that’s important when you’re shopping online.
We love our LPD community! They are the most amazing bunch of joyful, intelligent and delightful women. Best of all? They’re HONEST. They’ll wear and snap their LPD outfits and share their personal experiences in our reviews, so you can discover every little detail about every single item. We’re all about a personalised and fun shopping experience (expect lots of emojis in emails!) and getting your order to you in a hurry, because we know you want to wear it this weekend!
We also understand it can be tricky shopping online sometimes, so don’t stress about having to return anything – we’ve got a simple online returns policy, lovely. (see returns policy here >)
So, enjoy your time here. And, if you need our help at all, just holler! Contact us here >
Lots of love,
Your friendly LPD Team xx

A LITTLE ABOUT
HOW IT STARTED
After starting her career in the marketing world, our gorgeous founder, Kelly wanted to work on something she was truly passionate about: fashion and shopping.
And so, from the bedroom of her apartment, the concept of Little Party Dress was born, with colourful dresses and mirror selfies!
Little Party Dress had its first designs as an eBay store in 2010. It then organically grew thanks to social media and launched the first official LPD website in 2012. Fast forward to today, and we have a warehouse, incredible team, and an office with an inhouse studio.
Oh, how we’ve grown!
A LITTLE ABOUT
Kelly – or "Kel" as we like to call her – is our boss lady and fur mama to Maggie, the sassiest yet most adorable cat you’ll see on Instagram Stories.
The way to her heart is with pizza (and a glass of sparkling wine, for extra points). She’s obsessed with leopard print. Always has been. Even before it was cool again. Kel has a legit spider phobia. Like, don’t even joke about it – she’ll run for the hills.
Her favourite movie is Clueless. Cher is her style icon and Kel dreams of one day owning that incredible automated wardrobe… but the warehouse of LPD will do just nicely for now!
When she’s not working, you can find Kel on the couch with Maggie, enjoying a long lunch with friends, spending quality time with family, on a girls’ night out or on Instagram!
A little About
our design & creation process
We believe that style shouldn’t cost the earth, and so we are proud to say that Little Party Dress is playing its part.
All of our Little Party Dress suppliers are based in Sydney, New South Wales. We work SUPER closely with them (we’re texting all hours of the day and weekend) to make a product that is special and doesn’t cut corners to make things “cheaper”. We have the most amazing relationships with and trust in our suppliers.
Each item is designed here by either Kel or our suppliers, and we work with Australian artists and designers to create prints exclusive to Little Party Dress.
Our items are then manufactured by our supplier's partner companies in China. They only work with licensed factories, which requires that the workers are paid fair wages (living wage and above), no child labour, reasonable working hours, fire safety checks, continued testing and implementation of new sustainable practices, and are audited by a specific department on human rights and ethical practices.
We sometimes choose fabrics from the fashion markets in China, but mainly we digitally print onto plain fabrics, which is what we prefer to do because it’s less wastage, as we just print what we need.
The finished products are then sent over to us by either sea or plane, and then out to you – our gorgeous customers!
