The Cool Moms’ ToteSavvy

Once you get pregnant the search is on for all of the cool baby accessories that will not only make your life more comfortable but retain a bit of your own style. Nowadays, baby swag is unlimited and each thing is cooler then the next!  Unfortunately, when it comes to diaper bags, the options are limited if you are looking to stay within a reasonable budget. Even within the known designer names, the options are skim, with cheap finishes like vinyl replacing leather and the actual design of the bag being subpar. No thank you, at a price tag of over $400!

Why are you going to carry around a bag that just doesn’t feel like you? In the same instance, your old totes are just not going to cut it. You need to be fully armed while doing adventure diaper changes and dealing with public outburst. 

I recently ran into a concept that I LOVED! ToteSavvy will save you from settling with a diaper bag you feel partial to, at best! Why not just turn your favorite tote into your ideal diaper bag? ToteSavvy sells an insert in a variety of colors and sizes you can put into any one of your bags. The insert features tons of pockets that can be used to store all of your baby essentials. The concept is genius, and I think we will be getting a few for the next baby!

Wildfox Fairytale Collection

285240-1

Wildfox announces its Spring ’16 ‘Fairytale’ collection inspired by witches, mermaids, unicorns and other magical creatures and tales from the 1600s. The collection is set to hit stores in January 2016.

Brought to life in a campaign photographed by Mark Hunter, Spring ’16 tells the story, played by models Nadine LeopoldSolveig Hansen and Allie Lewis, who lived an enchanting life exploring the land and sea with sandy feet, windblown hair, and adventurous souls.

Pastel candy hues and mystical graphics create the whimsical fairytale of Wildfox’s Spring ’16. The collection is filled with playful sayings, such as “My Vacation House is a Castle” and “Don’t Feed the Dragons” as well as graphics that we often see in our imagination: kittens with mermaid tails, and majestic unicorns. Standout pieces from the sweater collection include the Luciana bandage dress, which features graphic fruit in strategic places; the Adelaide sweater, a tropical knit hoodie with lace-up neck; a the Lara crop, a delicate tank made of crochet flowers; the Junee sweater, adorned with a heart and the letters “NAH”; and the Hey Sailor Cosette sweater, which is made to look like a sailor’s uniform. Prices range from $62-$154 for tees, tanks and sweatshirts and from $118 – $209 for the sweaters.

In addition to our signature ultra-soft tees, sweaters and knits, Wildfox introduces its first-ever ready-to-wear collection of lightweight tops, dresses, jumpsuits, rompers, skirts, pants and kimonos made from flowy chiffon, rayon, and voile fabrics as well as an eco-friendly fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. Prints are offered in solid black, floral and pink lurex as well as graphics including all over stars and moons, seashells and crystals. There is also an underwater wash, which is custom developed and exclusive to Wildfox. RTW styles will be available in February 2016 and prices range from $70-$198.

NYFW Street Style Favs

When we’re talking Fashion Week, we’re talking all of the most Fabulous, fashionable, free-styled people in world meeting at one place at one time.   While everyones eye is supposed to be on the runway,  you cannot deny the congregation of excellent style all in one place.  Street Style is an unstoppable force in the fashion industry.  I have picked my top favs from New York Fashion Week, the tip of the iceberg as we move to Europe.  What excites me the most is when people make it work with whatever they have, brand or no brand. Who doesn’t look amazing in Chanel, Celine, Stella McCartney or Jimmy Choo but the girl who can find classic pieces anywhere and take it to the next level is a friend of mine.

What we see off runway is what is happening in the real world. The girls moving and shaking are driving the trends. So what are they? We are seeing a lot of 70’s inspiration on the street. Lots of Stripes, Boho, Patterns, Fringe, Denim, High-Wasted everything, Jump Suits. Thats where its at for the fall and we love it!
