What is it about patchwork that just never gets old? I used to have this doll quilt when I was little. I don't remember where it came from or who made it, but every single patch on it was different. I had favorite patches, least favorite patches, and would never get tired of looking at them all. Perhaps I was a bit of a strange child... but now as an adult that love for patchwork is still there. Janie and Jack's colors and styles are always so cheerful, and their Spring 2012 things are certainly no exception. My favorite items are, of course, the patchwork ones. How can you look at these and not think of a warm Spring day? We are getting so close!

Oh my goodness. I do believe that if I ever saw a little guy running around in one of these at a wedding or event, I may pass out from the cuteness. With this tuxedo shortall, Baby Dior does a fabulous job combining the classic bubble onesie shape with the form of a tiny wool tux. Complete with polo collar and faux pockets, I can almost picture a pocket watch chain dangling around somewhere. The back even has a false flap so it actually looks like your dapper little guy is wearing a vest. Loving everything about it. Find yours for $346.00 at Saks.

Okay, so it wasn't so much feeling like spring in the Midwest today. In fact, I am sitting at work right now with my space heater on because it is so cold in here. Aaaaaand tonight we have a freeze warning. Oh well. One last cold day isn't too hateful. How about the huge amount of variety we are seeing from Burberry this spring? We have some knit cashmere, some new blue check, and tons of adorable cardigans. I am loving how you can even see the nova check on the cuff of the little jeans. There is so so much more where this came from, and you can find it all at Saks!

So I have been teerrrrrible about blogging this month! I feel like there has been so much going on. I just had a birthday, spring has arrived about a month early, and I have been indulging in weekend trips left and right! I need to get back on track here. I know my last post was about red things, but truly I cannot get enough of them. One thing I love about Children Salon is that when you are viewing an item, they have a "You might also like" feature at the bottom, which is how I found these beautiful red-accented dresses.
First is a simple and cute creation by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. I am not a fan of the heart on the belt, but the scalloped bottom makes up for it. And I'm sure you could remove the heart if you really wanted to (I'd probably try). This one can be yours for $92.00.
Next is my favorite, by the always-impressive Monnalisa. It is actually a three piece set that comes with the cute little bolero cardigan and headband. Again, the attention to detail that Monnalisa consistently shows is incredible: from the white trim at the bottom of the cardigan to the ruffle on the headband, it's amazing. This one will cost you a nominal $299.00.
Last is a sweet little ladybug print dress and bloomers set by Moschino. You can tell it is just the softest cotton by looking at it, and the gathered ruffles at the bottom are too adorable. This one you can purchase for $139.00.
Happy Friday all!

Happy Hump Day to all! I am not so much looking forward to this work day... scary regional boss guy is going to be stopping by. Everyone gets all weird around scary regional boss guy. I wonder what he would say if he came in and saw me busily blogging away on company time. Whatever. I'm winning the lottery tonight anyway. So this season, Fendi is adding some red to their designs and I am absolutely in love. The little details on this shortie are so sweet; I had to add the back view so you can see the logo print on the hood and legs. Even the red buttons say Fendi on them. Perhaps this will be my first purchase with my lottery winnings; I have a very pregnant cousin with a wicked fashion sense who'd love it. Find this for a whopping $203.00 at Children Salon.

It's only 10:40 and it's already been a crazy Sunday: awoke to my upstairs neighbors (I live in a condo) blasting rap music and vacuuming at 6am, kitten pulled down shower curtain at 7am, some random guy with a wrong number started psycho dialing my phone (think 12 times in ten minutes) and leaving random texts for someone named "Meech" at 8am... This is a bad trend to start because I have to watch my boss's kids tonight and they are psychotic by nature (they probably get it from my boss). Oh well, at least life is never boring!
Anyway, I saw these cute little gift sets at Lavish Kids this morning and am a very big fan, mostly because of the linen overalls. I think they have a kind of French-y feel and would love the opportunity to buy the his and hers version for someone with boy girl twins. The four piece set comes with a onesie, the overalls, a soft cotton hat, and cute little plush duckie. Also, props to Armani for tasteful logo usage on all four pieces! These can be yours for $200.00.

I have to be honest, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name Guess would be those t-shirts that everyone had back in the 90's with the giant question marks on them. I also think of that scene in the Brady Bunch movie... that I am going to choose not to describe. If you have seen it, you know what I mean. But then I see things like these adorable baby shoes, and I know that Guess is still around making new statements every season. I am pretty in love with the pink check and striped shoes; the logo in rhinestones is also pretty awesome. The prices are very reasonable too, all around $50.00. Get your favorite pair at Children Salon.
