Spanish brand Bobo Choses has finally landed in shop and the collection won’t disappoint all you loyal Bobo fans! The fall/winter 2012 collection delivers beautiful yellows and electric blues paired with the perfect reds and soft pinks. This season their prints include an adorable menagerie of animals (cats, dogs, dinos) as well as a more cerebral geometric story. Leggings are printed with graphic triangles and there is an entire range of dressy dresses with diamonds, squares, and everything else we learned about in 4th grade math. For those of you who are more old school Bobo Choses fans, there’s plenty to love with their bright-colored animal rompers, sweatshirts and t-shirts. Take a look, hopefully you will be as infatuated as we all are in the shop!
The other day, while scanning photos on Google in preparation for my daily Facebook post, I noticed a trend emerging from all the images before me. It was furry and spotted and until then I thought it only existed in suburban yards and country forests. The fawn. But not just any old fawn; unbeknownst to me, Disney’s Bambi has a following that verges on obsession. Truth be told, I never saw the movie as a child and have yet to screen it for my three little ones. It seems the whole Bambi phenomenon passed me by. Apparently, I’m the ONLY one. One look at the multitude of products out there and one can only begin to glimpse the whole Bambi sub-culture that exists. Check out some of my finds and see what you think. Who knew?!
Lambini Papoose, $339 AUD, if you can find one!
If you’re anything like me, you want to have your new baby as close to you as possible for all (or most) of the day. And, if you love fashion as much as I do, you will spend months before your impending birth obsessing about which baby carrier to choose. Your choice will depend on many important factors: the climate your baby is born in, whether the carrier needs to be unisex, and how long you want the carrier to last. For the purposes of this post, however, I ignore all of those practical concerns and instead focus on the frivolous issue of aesthetics. Here is a round up of some of my favs, I hope they inspire you! Happy carrying…
I have three small kids ad have recently come face to face with the ugly reality that I might need to invest in some bunkbeds. Not my favorite look, aesthetically speaking, but oh so useful and necessary for the endless stream of overnight guests and visitors. If I had to buy bunkbeds, I knew I wanted something different. Practical, but still beautiful. I wasn’t sure that such a bunkbed existed–my experience with these space-savers consisted of the metal atrocities I encountered at camp and college. But luckily for all of us, in the year 2012, if you look hard enough, anything is possible. Below are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!
Every summer when I was growing up, I spent long hours in my family’s treehouse in Wisconsin. For me, our treehouse was THE place to do it all: cops and robbers, tea parties, tell secrets and even take impromptu naps. The activity didn’t matter. And certainly the design of the treehouse didn’t matter. What mattered was that we had our own space, away from our grown ups and safely tucked into a tree seven feet above the ground.
Now that I live in NYC, we do not have a treehouse. But recalling my fond summer memories, I decided to dig around a little online and see what the state of the treehouse is today in 2012. Below is a sampling of what I found. Suffice it to say that things are not what they used to be…
