corduroy jacket and pants carmel

We were recently turned on to a charming exclusive collection of online boutiques called Taigan.

They offer a wide variety of designers to shop from, in boutiques offering clothing for men, women, and of course, kids.  We particularly enjoyed this corduroy suit in camel, a classic look, and beautifully presented.  Always nice to find a new boutique full of beautiful fashions to shop, pin, and pine after!

Enjoy!

The Nordic Invasion – Vyssan Lull

Vyssan Lull Fall 2010

I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Johanna founder of Vyssan Lull online shop, who happens to be a fellow Jersey City resident. She made me feel very welcome in her showroom and I felt how enthusiastic she is about eco-friendly clothes and lifestyle.  Vyssan Lull, which is a pronunciation of Swedish Lullaby, is a metaphor for the look and feel of the Scandinavian children’s clothes wear. Vyssan Lull was the result of Johanna’s daughter Emma because Johanna did not see any really options in the U.S. for organic cotton the colors were either Brown, Green or Yellow very neutral colors.

Johanna being of Swedish and visiting her family started to buy Emma’s clothes in Sweden.  Scandinavian clothes are eco-friendly plus the colors and prints are fun and comfortable. Vyssan Lull currently offers 12 different brands and each of the items work so well together. The brands are either made of organic cotton or chemical free fabrics.  Johanna chooses to support the brands that are both ethical and hold true to the eco-friendly philosophy.  In the future, Vyssan Lull will offer more toys and various other items plus, Johanna will start a blog with tips on organic living, which would include washing tips.

Special thanks to Deanna Hernandez-Arza for this feature! Check out her blog for more goodness!


Eden’s Bouquet Hat, Shirt, and Jeans Review

Eden's Bouquet newsboy hat

Sometimes you have to toss a cheap pair of socks or pants in your cart because you’re in a rush and your kid needs them.  Usually, within a month the color has faded and sometimes the item even has a hole or two, which leaves you wondering why you even bothered.  If this is frequently a problem for you, then you NEED to visit Eden’s Bouquet.

Welcome to your new obsession!

The clothing from Eden’s Bouquet shows such attention to detail that every single piece is unique and stunning.  These items are so precious that you’ll want to make sure they last through each child, because you won’t tire of seeing them over and over.

white button down shirt and jeans by Eden's Bouquet

To our delight, we were sent the Harbor Tweed Newsboy cap, Organic cotton shirt, and the Harbor Jeans to review.  Henry just turned one, but the boy outfits mostly come in 2T and up.  Did that stop us from putting him in the jaw-droppingly beautiful clothes?  Of course not!

As you can see, the clothes may have been a little large yet, but we could put the hat on his big head now.  We swooned at the color and feel of the warm and wooly cap, and the lovely contrast it made with the delicate white shirt.

The jeans were obviously ready for whatever adventures Henry could dream up for them, providing him with plenty of deep pockets for all his treasures.  I have a feeling I’ll be finding all sorts of surprises in the dryer after the pants get a wash.

Simply put, we were very impressed with the clothes.  Not only are they lovely, they look like they can take all the things little boys throw at their clothes: leaf-jumping, crawling, wrestling, and more.

Stay tuned for our interview with Jen, the mastermind behind the clothing, as well as a giveaway!

Chateau De Sable – French designed children’s wear

Chateau de Sable children's fashion

Chateau de Sable, which means “sand castle” is a up and coming French children’s clothing label with an extraordinary attention to detail while not forgetting the innocent whimsical pleasures of childhood.  We felt that their own “About us” copy so perfectly captures what inspires US about children’s fashion that we couldn’t help but share it with you:

The inspiration for Château de sable is the innocence and vitality of children at play and a belief that children should look like children. Styling is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary with specially selected fabrics to ensure the highest possible quality for each item. The fine attention to detail is demonstrated by the exquisite finish of each piece in the collection.

The collections are presented to allow siblings to coordinate while still embracing individual identity; a real bonus if you have twins! This also means that by choosing a few items you can have a wide and interchangeable selection of outfits.

They keep their collections small and change often to make sure there’s plenty of variety and each line maintains a sense of uniqueness and exclusivity.  For the full experience you can find their US store here for your shopping pleasure.  And don’t forget to follow them on twitter to stay up to date on new lines, sales, and more!

Loving this shop, located in Toronto (though of course you can shop online) for its hand-picked European children’s fashions.  As you know, we have a pretty big weakness for European design, and Gretchen & Co is there to get us our fix (or at least heighten the addiction).  Straight from their website, here is their philosophy in a nutshell:

Our philosophy is simple: we believe in a land of unusual colours, incredible details and sumptuous fabrics. Gretchen & Co. carries fashion forward pieces that maintain a balance between contemporary and timeless designs.
