A Conversation with: Penelope of Smoochie Baby

By - Posted Jun 17, 2015
We are excited to be interviewing Penelope Stipanovich, the owner of one of our long-time retailers, Smoochie Baby in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! After originally opening the baby clothing boutique while living in Toronto, Penelope and her family moved back to NYC where she re-opened the store in her new Brooklyn neighborhood. Full of "big style for little smoochers," Smoochie Baby's a must for checking out what's fresh in children's fashion, picking up unique baby gifts, or discovering the latest new brands. We we're lucky enough to ask Penelope a few questions about running her own business, can't miss spots in Williamsburg, and favorite parts of motherhood... 1.

A Conversation with: Courtney Klein of Storq

By - Posted Apr 1, 2015
Meet Courtney Klein, the San Francisco-based entrepreneur and founder of maternity label Storq! Courtney founded the brand with the belief that your wardrobe and sense of style shouldn't have to change during your pregnancy. The brand debuted with four pieces (leggings, a skirt, tank top, and midi-dress) that can be purchased as a bundle and worn for all nine months. Each garment is available in a luxuriously soft black or white modal fabric (although the spring dress just launched in three new colors!), designed and manufactured in California, and meant to be mixed and matched with your current wardrobe. All-natural, pregnancy-safe creams and beauty items have also been added into the mix. W...READ MORE
