We had the joy meeting our little model Brooke last week ~ and trying to keep up with her energy! The day was overcast; not ideal for a photo shoot …. but once she sprang into action she brought her own sunshine with her! Here are a few moments I thought I’d share (wearing pieces from ZaZa Couture’s Fall 2011 collection):
Spring 2011 is just around the corner and we thought we’d share a couple the trends we know are coming!
Color combinations you can expect to see include: pink & gray; navy blue and white (or off white), varying shades of green & brown, chartreuse, teal & aqua blue, and of course… pink . Polka dots and Asian themes continue to be in vogue, and watch for ALL THINGS NAUTICAL to be popular with the trendy crowd!
The most prominent trend, however, continues to be retro … and we couldn’t be happier! Storybook themes and vintage artwork, paired with traditional, simple styling are only becoming more and more popular!
Some brands to watch?
Mim Pi , Catimini, Luna Luna Copenhagen, Lipstik Girls, and Isobella & Chloe are a few of our recommendations. Of course Lemon Loves Lime is always popular for setting trends and whimsy of her own ~ and we have that too!
Katie Holmes’ daughter, Suri is cute and stylish as ever, playing in her bubble gum pink coat at the park!
We’re so glad to offer similar coats for your sweetie!
The Corky and Company Snuggle Down Sweet Pea Coat and Roll Hat is SO cuddly and movie star-stylish, made from super soft pink scalloped faux fur and has fleece blanket cloth lining, peter pan collar, and buttons down front. Comes with matching pink roll hat. Available in sizes 2T-4T for $110.00.
Congratulations to Melissa Watkins, “Fashionista Extraordinaire” according to our very fashion-savvy shopping, reading, and trend-setting friends from around the globe! (Scroll below to view actual poll results)
Last month I offered up three of my current favorite fashion blogs to choose from ~ all top caliber in their own realm of the fashion industry, and having a connection to children’s fashion in its own right.
Readers chose Melissa’s “Fab Glance Nashville” web blog based on her always current content, her wide spectrum of fashion coverage, and her own editorial take on what’s hot and what’s not … that for most of us really rings true.
Thanks for always keeping it fresh and up-to-date, Melissa! Keep up the good work!
I peruse many children’s fashion blogs, and have learned one simple truth:
Many fashion writers just make this stuff up!
I’ve seen color predictions, silhouettes, and trends written about which have never, ever, come to pass (and thank goodness for most of them!). And the “what’s hot” and “what’s not” coming from a gothic fan vs the social elite seem to occasionally be at odds (go figure).
But some people really do seem to know their stuff …. and I’m interested in finding and sharing them with my fashionably friendly and fun friends!
In the running for my favorite children’s fashion/ family interest blogs this month are:
Le Top ~ For always having an interesting read (it doesn’t hurt that I love this brand for all sorts of good reasons)! Not alway related just to fashion, they keep an eye on celebrity baby-hood as well as inspiring ideas for family time together.
Tina Barry ~ Specializes in children’s fashion, and when she posts a column in the Brooklyn Paper it is always worth reading. Only problem is, her articles are all over the internet UNDATED. So reader beware … you may be getting a bit of fashion history instead of breaking trends if you find any references to her posts that are undated!
Fab Glance Nashville ~ Here’s a shout out to you girl! I stumbled upon Melissa’s fashion blog and have been a fan ever since. The lady lives and breathes fashion, including the most important demographic: children. You never know what tidbit of fashionable wisdom you’ll find there!
And the most important criteria for who really is the best? It’s not who know the biggest words, or who hob knobs with whom. The truth is, the best depends completely on what you think!
