The world inspires us! Our recent trip to Europe was just the thing to get our creative juices flowing! Here are just a few photos that captured our attention.


we're back!

Long hours of work for our new Spring 2012 line has finally paid off! The photos are beautiful thanks to our favorite photographer Jen Siska. Here is a special sneak peek of the photo shoot that just wrapped last week. Enjoy!

You are here

This is genius. It's a drag trying to figure out how to re-fold that silly map! These Crumpled City Maps are so perfect, when your done just squish it back into your pocket and stop wasting time.


a pair a spare and a box

I love our Pair and a Spare box sets and I was thinking about some ideas for re-using the box. A small memory or keepsake box of your babies first year seems perfect. A spoon, a pair of Angel Dear booties
(of course!), or the front page of a local newspaper of the birth date are just some ideas of things to keep. Tape your favorite first picture in the window of the box to personalize it!


tape in style

Who needs fancy wrapping paper when you could have fancy tape? I know I've blogged about this tape before but when it comes to the holidays and I'm starting to wrap presents again, I can't get enough of this Japanese tape.  I love the way it looks with simple brown butcher paper, wax paper,  tissue or newspaper and to dress up a holiday card! Here's a bunch of Happy Tape ideas that I got from their blog. Happy taping!


Sneak Peek!

 We had a great shoot!! Here are just a few of the fabulous photos our photographer took. 

Here I am with one of our beautiful models, Sophia.

Our wonderful team! A very special thanks to everyone. Susan Eslick our assistant stylist- without her nothing would get done! Kim Reid, our incredible graphic designer. Jen Siska, the photographer taking all the gorgeous pictures. Then there's me, Lily Rachles, photo stylist who brings you all the sneak peeks! Last but not least, the design director, the woman who designs all the clothes, and my mamma, Andrea Rachles!!


I'm always finding beautiful mobiles like

and this


Child Child Chair

I love this. Two seats and a table all in one from Child Child Chair. Their website is really cute and there are so many beautiful photographs, It was hard to choose!


paper puppets

Cute DIY paper puppets from With Her Animal Poetry. Something fun to do with an older child, or make them yourself and display them in your child's room!


Dry Erase Paint

I do love chalkboard paint but I don't love the chalk dust! IdeaPaint has created dry erase paint that goes on in one coat and can be painted anywhere. Pick from an array of soft colors to paint your hallway, walls, kitchen cabinets or even your furniture.  Their site is very informative with videos, ideas and the way they their product impacts the environment.


built-in beds

As I was surfing the internet for a built-in couch idea in my apartment, I came across these beautiful built-in children's beds on Remodelista. These cocoon-like, cozy beds look so inviting. I might have to build a bed instead!

Also, Remodelista is a great place for inspiration on anything in your home. It's one of my go to sites, besides this blog of course!

change...in style!

What a great use of space! These nursing tables by byBo design could attach to any wall in your house and nobody would know it was a changing table! I love the modern approach to a seemingly utilitarian item. 


ooh la la!

We are always looking for inspiration and what better place for that than Paris! The muted tones with splashes of color, the old architecture, the flea markets and flowers were perfect to keep our minds rolling for upcoming collections.
