Pinstripe Baby Boots

Pinstripe Baby Boots by Pogibabies

Keeping it a secret. That's what many expecting moms seem to be doing these days when it comes to the gender of their babies to be. I've met many customers and mommies looking for unisex baby gifts. Me personally, I couldn't wait to find out....even paid extra money to find out! Maybe when I have another I'll be able to wait for the surprise the second time around.

I've come up with this version of my winter boots for those secretive types. This pair of pinstripe booties would look perfect on a little boy or girl alike.

I'll be making these shoes with different colored birds and in 3 sizes: 0-3m, 3-6m, and 6-12m. These little babies will arrive ready for gift giving inside a handmade Pogibabies gift box.

Mint Chocolate Tutu by kennedyandfriendsco

These finds are inspired by the tornado watch we had here last night. yup, an actual tornado watch in MA! Ok, so a tutu is not the perfect tornado wear...but pair it with some rain boots and you have total cuteness!

Make your own Boutique Bow

Make your own boutique bow!
check out the Ribbon Retreat's free tutorial

Like most crafters, I have a large stockpile of ribbon. I just can't seem to resist the gravitational pull of the $1 ribbon bin at the craft store. So what to do with all this ribbon? I decided to try my hand at making a boutique hair bow. What do you think?

I used this great tutorial in PDF format from Ribbon Retreat. It's quick and easy to do...and it's FREE! You'll need a blank silver hair clip which you can find at any craft store or at Wal-Mart. So get out your glue guns and bust out some super unique birthday gifts for the little girl in your life!

My daughter (a total girly-girl) instantly fell in love with this bow and would have slept in it had I let her!

My Fair Baby

black and white Audrey by Rockerbaby

Today I was watching my favorite movie of all time: My Fair Lady - the Audrey Hepburn version of course! You know the one..."c'mon Dover, move yer bloomin arse!". love it! The most inspiring scene for me is the black and white Ascot Race. The dresses are fierce, the choreography is's just all around visually stunning. watch a clip on YouTube

Here are my pics for dressing your little Audrey for the Ascot opening race!

New Item! - Madeline Capelet

I'm currently obsessed with the look of a pleated ruffle! It's simple yet sweet and sophisticated at the same time. I love it so much that I've decided to design my entire 2008 Fall/Winter around this one little detail. This hooded capelet is the first piece for the line. Other pieces that I have in mind are a Fall Coat and matching Earflap Hat. I'm still in the planning stages for those...but keep an eye out for them to drop into my Etsy Shop soon!
