NYC’s Babesta recently released the fall edition of its “magalog,” The Beat, and it’s full of fall fashion must-haves for babies and toddlers, tips on building the perfect nursery or baby registry, and interviews with industry designers and trendsetters. This black-and-white editorial, “Unplugged” takes a laid-back approach to fall fashion’s most comfortable designer children’s clothing. Featuring brands like Mini Rodini, NUNUNU, and Munster, the shoot’s cozy looks are cool, comfortable, and easy-to-wear; perfectly practical and appropriate for weekends relaxing at home, active days at school, or (swiftly approaching!) vacation days spent hanging out with friends. View the entire shoot & rest of The Beat here, including direct links to shop the threads.

Last Minute Costume Ideas

Siaomimi Play - Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just over a week away! Still need to get your toddler’s costume? We have a few of Siaomimi Play‘s beautiful costumes and dress up clothes for toddler girls and boys still in stock. Hilda Yim (the brand’s founder and designer) takes classic costumes and gives them a modern twist with luxe fabrics and unique details that are even more spectacular up close and in person. The brand’s creations are imaginative and whimsical – perfect for Halloween or an ordinary afternoon playing dress up.

If instead of a full-out costume, you or your toddler are just looking for a few accessories or something designed for everyday wear that is also appropraite on October 31st, here are some ideas…

Bobo Choses AW14 - Girls' Leggings

Bobo Choses Shiny Leggings add a glamorous/futuristic/galactic touch to any outfit (see also: NUNUNU‘s leather leggings and metallic crewneck).

Siaomimi Play Monster Head

These monster heads from Siaomimi Play require no outfit – slip it on and you’re ready to go.

Girls Tutu - Atsuyo et Akiko

Girls’ tutus, tiaras, crowns, & wands from Atsuyo et Akiko are girly, fun accessories that will add a touch of sparkle and whimsy. They make an easy ballerina or princesses costume but are also perfect for a rainy afternoon and girls who think every day is the perfect opportunity to dress up.

Soft Gallery AW14 - Leopard Print Jumpsuit

This leopard print girl’s jumpsuit from Danish brand Soft Gallery was designed for the everyday, but makes a super simple feline-inspired costume!

P.S. More ideas here & here.
