Winter may have only begun, but many mamas are already sick of bundling up their tots. Though Spring may be a while away, a pile of catalogs appeared in my mailbox this week and has me dreaming of warmer days and balmy nights. Here are my six favorite child styles for next season.
Nowadays, we’re all sample sale crazy. Online flash sales can score you a great deal, and that includes for your lil ones! The new sample sale site LilLuxe.com focuses on providing high quality brands for kids.
The site, which debuted earlier this month, is a membership-based service much like Gilt, except their products are solely for the lil set. Founder and CEO Deap Ubhi started the company after realizing that he and his expectant wife were faced with the exciting prospect of “thinking of all the stuff they’ll not only need for their child, but all the stuff they’d want for their child.”
What makes the list? Brands made from high quality fabrics, like Baby Eggi, which counts Brad and Angelina’s daughters as fans, trendy tops like Beckham boy favorite Kid Republic, or eco-friendly products like Green Toys. LilLuxe offers brands like these, in addition to accessories and décor, at up to 70 percent off. Membership is free by invitation or by signing up on the website.
To find out more about the new site and its offerings, I spoke with vice president of merchandising Deb Millard and buyer Anu K. Gill.
LilSugar: How would you say that your service is different than others on the market?
Deb Millard: What we're trying to do is not inundate [customers] with a million different events every day. We're really trying to build partnerships with our brands so that not only are we selling great products at great prices but we're also trying to tell a story about who these brands are that we're working with. It's more than just throwing some items on a website and saying "here, buy them for cheaper."
Find out more about LilLuxe as well as Anu and Deb’s hot celeb trends for the holiday season after the break.
When wardrobe shopping for tiny tots, most moms consider price, fit, and practicality above all else. One mother recently commented to me, "I wanted to buy that same dress your daughter is wearing, but I wasn't sure the coloring would suit my daughter." Taken back by her statement, it made me wonder if I am abnormal for never having considered my child's complementary hues. Shy of her third birthday, I figure if it's the right price and serves a purpose, it might find a way into the closet.
Do you dress your darling according to his or her color wheel?
About halfway through each Winter, my daughter (and sometimes I) loses one glove from her set. It is around this time that the stores have moved into Spring clothes and nary a glove is available for purchase, so we become creative in how we cover her hands on cold days.
It seems that I am not the only mother who faces this issue, as I recently came across a fun little company called Little MissMatched that caters to us. Launched four years ago, the company sells gloves - and socks - in mismatched, but coordinating, packs of three. Designed to encourage creativity among girls of all ages, the packages are great for lil ones (and their moms) who misplace gloves on the playground or socks at gymnastics class. With adorable designs that can be mixed and matched, you can guarantee that a few sets of these creations will be making their way into my tot's Winter wardrobe.
Babies can be wiggly lil ones, can't they? Feeding a babe is never a simple task and when they start sliding down the chair, you are facing an uphill battle to keep them propped up. A New Jersey couple developed a line of baby clothes called Stickee Buns. The soft cotton onesie and pant sets ($40) come with built-in traction in the form of little Cinnabons on the tush and back. The buns are designed to keep your lil one in place - be it in a high chair, a swing or a car seat. What's your opinion of this invention?
Two years ago, I never would have dreamed of going to Pottery Barn Kids for baby threads. Clearly not just a destination for couches and wine glasses, Pottery Barn offers painfully cute baby clothes for infants and toddlers alike.
The Late Winter 2008 line reveals darling gingham and Swiss dot dresses for her and seersucker jumpers and plaid pants for him. Sweet and charming to look at, the pieces are also good quality. And to top it off, if you want to personalize an item, they will monogram just about anything. Grandma will swoon at her precious muffin all dolled up for the Spring holidays.
