What’s one item of clothing your child can’t do without this summer?  A hoody, mommy.  Seriously, it’s the most versatile and functional piece to a kid’s wardrobe.  They keep you warm on breezy summer evenings, keep you covered when the mosquitos are nipping, and keep you dry when you run for cover during an unexpected summer rain shower.  We like the hoodies from the Euro chic Plush.  Their handmade Raf hoody is so original and our tot loves wearing it so much that she just about sleeps in it (last night we gave in…wasn’t worth the fuss!).  Love the felt giraffe applique that “peeks” around under the arm.  The modern gray shade goes with most everything in our wee one’s closet and the fabric is soft on her skin.  While browsing Plush’s other creations we just noticed their new Fink dress.  Perfect for the playground, art museum or a birthday celebration.  Oh my, those Europeans know how to make childrens clothes hip, sophisticated and functional.  Have a look at Plush and tell us what you think…and let us know what you purchased!

 


French & Fabulous: Black Rabbit Clothes

Every once in a while we come across a clothing company that really blows us away with it’s original designs and impeccable style. The longer we search for fresh childrens wear, the more difficult we are to please. Fortunately we stumbled upon the fabulous BLACK RABBIT, a gorgeous company that makes classic and sophisticated wear for children. We love the French look and feel to these pieces, from the clean lines to the luxurious fabrics. Also high on our list is the unexpected details you’ll find in each piece, whether it’s the patterned lining, or a brilliant button placed just so. We have two of their linen jackets and love the lined inside as much as the chic outside of each one. Paired with jeans and a funky pair of mary janes, my little girl is ready for anywhere the day may take her. BLACK RABBIT’S tops, lounge wear and jackets are made for passing along to your grand kids after your wee ones are done with them…they are just that beautiful. We only wished they made them for mommies too. BLACK RABBIT would appeal to little Suri’s sophisticated style and Apple’s individuality. KATIE likes to dress her daughter in French clothes, as we all know, so if she hasn’t heard of BLACK RABBIT yet, she’ll rush out and buy some once she reads this… Agree?
