New Native Baby Pouches are showing up all over Hollywood and New York on the most A list of celebs. We couldn’t help but notice, and since it’s good enough for Brad and Angie, we though we should try this popular baby carrier out ourselves. We have one of New Native’s organic carriers in natural twill with a gorgeous poppy trim. First off, we have to say it is so soft. Like butter. No worries about rough material on baby’s face here. We also really love that it’s so simple to use. No hooks, rings or snaps. Busy mommies need simplicity, and this carrier has that and loads of classy style. Who else has a New Native Baby Pouch? The fabulous Keri Russell and new daddy Matthew McConaughey. Perfect for a stroll in the park, or for an active day around the city. Besides looking fabulous with all of our outfits (yes, that is important mommies), this carrier folds up super small so it fits into our diaper bag easily. Carry your baby like Angelina at www.newnativebaby.com
It’s true mommies, you just can’t own enough organic tee shirts…or pants for that matter. We’re always on the hunt for fabulous organic clothes for our little tots and our latest fab find is Chapter One Organics. We fell for their Earthlux Lounge Set in Olive. So soft and comfy with a modern graphic. Perfect outfit for a crisp Fall walk, or snuggling and sipping hot chocolate. Love the eggplant and red clay shades they use too. They also make stylish onesies and rompers with hip patters and brilliant details. Our favorite is the Groovy Pink Dress. It’s simply gorgeouse. The best part? Chapter One Organics has their earth friendly clothing made in the US by women who have had significant barriers to employment. How fantastic is that? So, like we said….be good, shop organically when you can as every little bit does help. Chapter One will help ya look stylish while you’re doing good at www.chapteroneorganics.com.
Shopping for boys can be a wee bit harder than for girls. Everything seems to have baseballs and sailboats… so boring when you want to show off your babe’s individual style. If you get hives like us everytime you see yet another football tee, then have a look at the super fabulous threads at Knuckleheads. Hip & slick jackets, trousers and shirts that look cool at the playground and at that fabulous little neighborhood bistro you’ve been wanting to try. Love their Pub style hat and Gutterball shirt…so retro and full of sophistication. Their use of plaid and houndstooth is a breath of fresh air in a sea of Winnie and Mickey. Celeb mommies Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani must agree, as their tots have been photographed wearing Knuckleheads too. We have their News Jacket and couldn’t be happier. Keeps our little hipster warm and looking good. Add some Knuckleheads to your baby boys closet at www.knuckleheadsclothing.com
We have two sets of Knuckleheads socks to give away to you if you can tell us the name of the brilliant mommy behind Knuckleheads…good luck! You have till midnight Friday to to email us your answer at email@example.com and we’ll randomly pick a lucky winner.
We are having a dreaded bad hair day dear readers…make that a bad hair week. Too soon to get it cut and too busy to do much more than wash it, we are simply going crazy! Some days all you want is good hair…it can make your day, especially when the baby won’t nap and your toddler is having more mood swings than you are. So put the baby in the bouncer momma, switch on the “toons for the toddler ( what would we do without those Wonder Pets?) and pull up a mirror. We just started using our KNOTHEADS hair accessory and we are in love….it is fabulous!!! (we never use three exclamation points, so you know we’re happy). It comes in two sizes and simply wraps around your hair to create either a perfect pony tail, or brilliant up ‘do. You can use the little ones to hold back small sections of your hair, or try the big one and twist it into a lifesaving hair band. Knotheads were featured in this summer’s Celebrity Hairstyles mag and June’s Shape magazine, so expect to see them on celebs and their children any day (Cindy Crawford uses them on daughter Kaia’s long locks). Where will we wear them? The gym, the cafe, out for dinner with the girls, around the house and the playground….everywhere. Love the Blond Bombshell shade the most, pulled close to the hairline…very modern and took two seconds to pull our look together. Pair two Knotheads together for that trendy celeb look and you’ll feel gorgeous. We’ve always said that good hair can make or break your hectic mommy day. So toss the bobby pins, burn your scrunchies and ditch the barretts…it’s time to rock a more hip and polished look momma. See all their colors and styles for you and your girl at www.knotheads.com
We are busy mommies and have such a small amount of time to get so much done. Feedings, baths, play time, and housework…it all adds up. Throw in a latte or two at the local cafe and your day is done. With such little time to shop for our children, we were so delighted to find out about My Princess Closet, a brilliant online shop that carries all the celeb mommy faves, and obviously ours too. We felt like royalty ourselves when the Garden Princess Dress arrived at our door (shopping for next Spring already…never too early momma!). Once we saw pictures of Miss Suri Cruise wearing this classy little dress, we had to have it too. She’s such a stylish and classy little dresser, don’t you think? You can have it monogrammed with an initial or name as well. The sweeties at My Princess Closet also included a posh little pack of crayons and a picture to color in our order. Fabulous! They also carry celeb must haves like Baby Legs and Zooni Hats…we have both and can’t wait till it’s cold enough to get the kids into them. Have a look at our best kept secret at www.myprincesscloset.com
We admit that we are a little bit addicted to Robeez , and when they come out with a new style we feel quite excited. Hardly a week goes by that there isn’t a snapshot of a celeb baby wearing a cool pair of comfy Robeez…Marcia Cross and her twins seems to be as smitten with them as we are! You smart mommies know that when you find a reliable company that you like and trust, you stick with it….so tired of getting home from the shops with shoes for our children and finding that the fit is off, or they just don’t handle wear and tear well. So, you can see why we let out a yelp of joy when Robeez introduced their new Mini Shoez line…still with the soft flexible sole, but they have that “real shoe” look. We went for their laced boots in Periwinkle with chocolate brown details and laces. Love how they jazz up our little man’s outfits. Even our little boy has better shoes than his mommy! See the new line at www.robeez.com
Today, Robeez launched its “Dream Show Wardrobe Contest.” One lucky winner will receive the grand prize of a dream shoe wardrobe from Robeez valued at $500. There are 10 secondary prizes of two pairs of Robeez footwear of your choice. Contest closes October 5, 2008. Enter at http://www.robeez.com/contest.aspx.
Good Luck Mommies!
You mommies know how difficult it is to find clothes that are stylish and comfy…you usually have one, but not the other. We were so happy to hear about Jaxxwear from one of our savvy mommy readers and now we are addicted. Their clothes are made of super soft pima cotton…you know the kind that doesn’t pill, stays smooth and gets softer with washing. Love it! Their style is modern prints paired with bold solids…the end result being gorgeous. Our little one has been sporting Jaxxwear’s Superstar long sleeve onesie from their Fall 2008 line, one of their most popular styles. Wish we ordered more as it is so comfy and goes with so many outfits. Love the color combo of the baby blue and warm brown. We had a peek at their Spring 2009 line and know that the Pink Lemonade and Lemongrass designs will be added to our wishlist. So fresh and modern, with baby friendly patterns (we’re so over the skulls and tattoo look on our onesies, and you should be too mommy). Have a look at their hip line at www.jaxxwear.com
Eco fashions have come a long way baby…and we love it! They used to be so boring, and well, just so bla. Now us earth minded mommies can pick and choose hip and eco friendly clothes. Style and the environment go hand in hand with the fresh and funky designs at SNRG WEAR, a delicious find from Hawaii. Great bold colors and slick graphics make their tees and onesies a fave around here. Urban but very kid friendly. Love the positive message they send out too…the surfers, the trees, the headphones, all good things that bring smiles and pleasure to our busy lives. Their hand screened tees and onesies are made of organic cotton and the dye they use is low impact. How brilliant is that? We think these creations are very “Jolie-Pitt” and would make a great gift for the twins, don’t you think? Have a look at www.snrgwear.com, you can thank us later.
Every stylish wardrobe needs basics. Even baby’s needs the perfect tee and pair of casual yoga pants to wear to Sunday brunch. We’ve stocked up on our baby’s clothing staples at ikookie. Dressing your child in organics has been the norm in Hollywood for some time, and now us regular moms can shop for it to without spending a fortune. The clothes at ikookie are extremely soft and with colors like banana, blush and marshmallow, your tot will be happy to wear them too (who knew 2 year olds had such an opinion on what to wear?). The lilac and the rose colored tees would fit in with this Falls trend of bright pastels. They’d also look brilliant layered over the long sleeved tees. We think their diaper covers are super cute too…cute usually isn’t our “thing” here at Celebrity Baby Clothes, but can’t you just picture them covering your baby’s little bum? Check out ikookie’s organic line at www.ikookie.com
We like to think of September as a new beginning. Out with the old smelly lunch bags and in with the new. We have our tot’s lunch packed up in MIMI THE SARDINE’S eco friendly Fleur Lunch Bag. It’s fabric is from Sweden and it’s free of all those nasty chemicals that have us mommies stressed out. How fabulous is the bright blue backdrop? The flowers seem to just pop right out at you too. So stunning and very stylish…we may just have to borrow it every now and then from the little one. Love how easy it washes…spilled ravioli? No worries, just wipe it or toss in the washer. Raspberry jam sandwiches are always more fun when they come in a cute little lunch bag, don’t you think? We got ours from OOMPA TOYS (love their Euro collections) and you can too at www.oompa.com
