Wintertime calls for loads of plaids–somehow the print feels so warm and cosy. Here are some super-cool iterations of the check print that we have on our racks at Babesta. Loving the (clock wise) Baby Lady dresses and Goorin hats, Munster cardigan, A for Apple shorts and Mini Rodini Coat. Check them out here.

It's no big secret that I love cats! We've got three of them at home (even though I'm allergic), so when a the design community decides that cats are fashion forward, I'm the first one to jump aboard! Check out our array of pretty-kitty fashions, decor and toys by the likes of Crowded Teeth, Mini Rodini, Kid Robot, Bobo Choses, Skip Hop, Sourpuss Clothing and Vilac. If you're a cat-person, click here to shop!
The star is having a moment! Whereas normally you'd cast your gaze upward to catch 'em, now you can just look toward the playground for some celestial pizzazz . Check out some of our favorite fashion-forward twinklers by Mini Rodini & Bobo Choses at Babesta here.
Excited for petitePARADE tomorrow and Sunday! The red carpet will be rolled out and Kids' Fashion Week(end) will begin. I'm particularly looking forward to checking out the Parsons School of Design show at 5:00 on Saturday as well as the 1:00 Bonnie Young show (her clothes are fabulous) and the 5:00 Swarovski crystal show on Sunday! This is the most exciting peek into Spring 13 –as we get to see the clothes in action! We'll report back on the "best of", some of which you'll shop on our racks come spring!
Got something in the inbox the other day that looked pretty cool – a new creative arts magazine "for children and their grown ups" called BIG Kids Magazine. The mag is based out of Australia and touts bravery, imagination and generosity- three characteristics I can definitely support! The biannual publication is set to show kids' work and artists' work side by side and the editorial team is child-led.
Supporting the artists community and inspiring creativity in kids are values we share at Babesta -so we're excited! This should be a project worth following! Can't wait to see the first issue. Check out their progress at www.bigkidsmagazine.com.
Cats and Hats are Purrfect together (much like New Jersey & You). Just needed to post this image because I love it so! Shop Mini Rodini at Babesta.
We thought it pretty cool when BASF announced that it is partnering with the Newark Museum to create a Kids' Science Learning Lab at the Museum. As the daughter of a chemist, experimentation is in my blood. I can just imagine how much fun it would be for kids (under supervision) to try out these fun interactive classes on Saturdays. Here's a list of classes:
Sept 29 (Water Loves Chemistry: Operation Filtration), October 6 (Playful Polymers), October 13 (The Rainbow Connection), October 20 (A Hair-Raising Experiment), November 3 (The pHun Factor), November 17 (Happy Hands), December 1 (Hold Everything), December 8 (A Hair Raising Experiment) and December 15 (Playful Polymers)– at 1pm and 3pm. Get on your safety goggles folks! This will be fun!
For children aged 6-12
Participation: Free, but space is limited

A for Apple’s Dewi Utility Furry Jacket might just be the piece de resistance for the season. It’s highly versatile and can be worn layered with the fur vest for a luxe-cool, without the fur vest to get an army jacket feel or vest-alone to top off a chic ensemble. The faux fur is soft and the quality and details of this jacket are stand out.

Introducing ESP No. 1 at Babesta! Super cute skinny jeans in candy coated colors! Some even with ankle zips. ESP No. 1 is the brainchild of two creatives who joined forces to make a great range of unisex basics. We're totally loving them – the pop of color is simple yet statement making and the fit is perfect.
