We’ve Got Bump Envy!

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 6.30.17 PMWe could not be more stoked to have the privilege of hosting the “Bump Envy” section of Well Rounded NY (our fave city prego site!). A bevy of gorgeous mommies to be (and mommies to be again!) swung by an afternoon not long ago and posed for the site! As you can see they were very stylish & to be sure, several must be welcoming  equally stylish babies into the world imminently! View the Stylish Mamas and more here!

Complex Magazine’s coolest Mag Covers March 2014: Babesta Beat!

Complex magazine magazine cover Pranksy Babesta Beat

We were so stoked to be named on Complex magazine’s list of top mag covers from March 2014. There seemed to be an art vibe in the air! Check out Pranksy alongside of a Magritte inspired Sunday Times, Questlove on Wired and a pretty cool Campbell’s Soup cover. Hard to believe little Pranksy is playing with some of the big boys. :) )))

So Excited! Introducing the Mimi & the Magic Forest VIDEO

Enjoy and please share! We are thrilled to be able to introduce the Mimi & Magic Forest video! We had so much fun with the Mimi story, we couldn’t stop at still pictures. We really wanted to offer up a living, breathing fashion story, featuring the highlights of the store (Oeuf cribs, Bugaboo strollers, cool knit toy pigeons & taxi ride ons and of course our range of cool indie fashion — Mini Rodini, ESP No. 1, La Miniatura, Munster Kids!)

Listen to the store of Mimi, a city girl who finds herself in the country & embarks on a magical adventure!
