Georgina daughter Charlotte

Just like with adults, a little style can go a long way with kids.  That being said, Georgina‘s daughter Charlotte (above) could wear a paper bag and look cute.

The problem with dressing up kids is that they ruin their “nice” clothes as quickly has you can say, “Grab a napkin honey.”  So whether you shop these sites or use them for inspiration, check out a few of these fun kido clothing sites.

  • LadyAgents – Sartorialist for kids.
  • Wunway – Runway style for casual kids.
  • Melijoe – Big designers for little people.
  • WendyBellissimo – New born deliciousness.
  • FabKids.com – Birchbox for kids – Christina Applegate’s subscription site delivers an outfit/month
  • MacaroonOriginal – Post-mag editor, current store owner, perfect online curator.

Georgina’s blog is all focused on her two precious kids these days, so she will have more tips and lists for you mommies.

Also check out the new webseries CandyLand – it’s like 90210 with kids as the actors.  The short episodes that focus on pre-schoolers with big kid drama in a highschool setting will satisfy your mid-day pick-me-up/procrastination craving.

July 5th, 2011 1 Comment

Behold a happy woman with a sense of style.

The 28 year old “normal” San Fran working girl pens a fashion blog where she outlines her outfits and discloses her wish lists in a whimsical and relatable voice. Her smile makes every outfit picture perfect and captivates you to scroll through her online catalogue of ensembles.

Check out her blog 9to5 chic here.

(I found 9to5 via my NYC friend, mommy, and blogger Georgina.  We met via tumblr years ago. Read her blog and you’ll know instantly why I love this lady.)

Back to the Big Apple :)

May 11th, 2010 No Comments

This trip might come as a bit of a surprise to you. But I’m so excited to be heading up back to my island home.

Here’s what my travel to get there entails:

5am CST – Pry eyelids open

7am – I leave on a JetBlue plane.

11:30am EST – Pry eyelids open again as plan reaches the gate.

11:34am – I set foot into the great state of New York.

1pm – Mani/pedi with Lucy at BB Nails (I haven’t had a mani/pedi since Sarah’s birthday, yikes!).  My love Adrien is joining me!

2:30pm – Meeting #1

4:30pm – Meeting #2

6pm – Drinks with a few of my favorite peeps (minus one new mommy).

7:30pm – Dinner meeting.

9pm – Pass the F out.

Obviously it’ a work trip, but I’m squeezing in a little me time.  And of course, spring hasn’t hit NYC yet so I’m forced to lug multiple pairs of boots across the country.  Whatever, the trip could yield some great partnerships, so keep your fingers crossed.

Below are pics with captions from my entire trip.

 

If you’re flying an airline that shares a terminal with Southwest, 9.5 times out of 10, the security line won’t border on obnoxious, it will be full blown ridiculous.

(This one at Hobby zig-zags and fills the entire terminal.)

Check it out. “That guy” who spilled half her bag in the security line pulled it together and made her flight.

Always my first stop in NYC: BB Nails on the corner of Lex and E 30th. Litterally I get off the plane and take a taxi straight here. Of course, I had to make the appointment with Lucy at least a week in advance. She’s that good! The number here is 212-689-1892.

How sweet is my Megs to come meet me to catch up?! I love this lady.

I’m off to meet G and Charlotte for lunch uptown. Trying out a new iPhone app for pics, what do you think? This effect doesn’t really fit the photo, but it’s my favorite thus far. More to come on this later.

I love surprising people with sweet treats. Usually I make them, but in NYC I have so many favorite bakeries, I pick one per trip and stock up to distribute to friends, people I take meetings with, etc. Such a simple gesture that always makes them smile.

The trick is to bring something people love and wouldn’t get for themselves (cupcakes from Sprinkles/Crave/Buttercup) or truly unique that people might not know about.

Today I picked up unbelievably delicious brownie bites from Bouchon bakery at Columbus Circle on my way to meet G. Another favorite is the cinnamon toast from Stumptown coffee. In Houston I go to Dapaco’s in the Heights for tres leches cake. As for LA, my go-to is Delucious cookies from Food+Lab.

I got my daily dose of Charlotte in person today. She’s such a good baby!!

For more of this precious face and tips from her beautiful mommy visit G’s blog www.georgiegirlnyc.com

The real deal in action.

G is quite a stylish mommy. She makes motherhood look so simple and glamorous! Love her Tory Burch shades and Steve Madden flats.

Maybe One Day Head To Toe:

— Marc by Marc Jacobs sunnies

— Yumi-Mazao trench from Encore

— Black leggings

— Fendi boots

— Faux snake clutch from vintage store on 19th street in Houston

I’ve always wanted a white trench, but it’s so impractical for New Yorkers who need outerwear that can look clean even though it’s embarrassingly dirty. For Houston and LA, a white trench will get a couple months of good use without looking worn.

As for a mommies, a white anything probably got pushed to the back of your closet. Just shows you the “Maybe One Day” isn’t necessarily around the corner for me.

After my last trip to NYC, I had put all of my boots away for summer. But never underestimate New York weather to throw a wrench in your plan. These Fendi boots have actually lasted through 3 years in New York, and with a little shine, look as good as new. (Side note: Did you see the video Adrien, Sarah, and I made on the roof of Gawker when Adrien was strutting his stuff in these boots? Too funny. Oh the memories!) Ok, he’s done. 10 minutes and 6 bucks later, these boots are ready to walk again.

Is it just me or is it true that the NY Times is a much better read in print than online? I lead a digital life, but you really can’t beat reading The Times (or WSJ or Vogue) in your hands. Some things just don’t translate. And it’s nice to go old school from time to time. Just my opinion.

Baby Girl!

April 11th, 2010 No Comments

Mum and her Baby Girl couldn’t be cuter!!! Charlotte is one lucky little girl to have such caring and fun parents. Not to mention she’s cute as a button, already has eyebrows, and will be a maneater for sure. I really can’t wait to watch her grow up.

I can’t take my eyes off her precious face!!!

Babies and lovely ladies before the sunrises.

April 7th, 2010 No Comments

I’m awake and too excited to go back to sleep.

After a dream of time-traveling lovers who were just caught by the Germans, I was thankful to wake up and leave them behind. I then realized I had forgotten to set my alarm on my phone for an early meeting. Grabbing my phone means checking my email.

Well, what do we have here?!!!

 

Wait there’s more!

G has gone into labor and Baby Girl is coming today!!! How exciting. Poor G, that’s gonna hurt, but obviously worth every bit of it.

Now my mind is going….

Back in my email, Charles has sent another shoe update from Neimans. Check out this lovely lady! Sophisticated and funky all on one stiletto. Gorgeous! Wish she was mine!

So, now my eyes are fully dialated and there’s no turning back…

You start thinking about how many outfits these little ladies will go with, your heart gets going a little too fast, and you’ve lost any chance of sleep for the next hour.

I’m turning Lost back on, that should do the trick.

“Buying Books” — By Georgina, Mommy-to-Be and Bookworm

March 17th, 2010 6 Comments

Reblogged From My Friend G f

For a short time I attempted borrowing books from the library.  Unfortunately it’s inconvenient for me to get to the library so I was always bringing them back late.

I’ve gone back to buying my books and I generally use Amazon.

Today I went into Borders and wandered around.  I love seeing the books they are promoting, picking them up, reading the back, maybe even reading the first couple of pages to get a feel for the writing.

I found a whole bunch of books that I would like to read so I pulled up my Amazon iPhone application, added them to my wishlist, went home and purchased them on Amazon for far less than the Borders retail price.  Sneaky, but fiscally responsible.
