Back in the City-Whew, we made it!

In meandering the streets in the 2nd and 3rd, outside of our apartment in Paris, I was struck by all of the beautiful doors and wanted to use them as a backdrop for my “city” shots.

–>In front of a gorgeous Tiffany blue door, with a Babesta KISS tee and Munster animal print jeans and amazing tiger print sunglasses by Mini Rodini. Check out the street art on the lower right by French artist Space Invader.

–>Anatole is a French mouse (the beret was the clincher) and the tee by Out of Print Books paired perfectly with a red reversible skirt by A for Apple. I thought a white door right off the Rue Montorgueil was well suited.

–>A New Yorker in Paris, decked in her Grass and Clovers NYC tee and the reversible skirt in green by A for Apple. Although her tee betrays her country of origin, you’d swear she was French by her penchant for croissants.

–>The Boombox NPR tee by Chaser is almost as loud as the French graffiti backdrop. Thought it was a cool cacophony of design that was a must-capture. On her head: tiger printed glasses by Mini Rodini.

–>The Mini Rodini Panther cardigan is an awesome piece to amp up a monotone ensemble or crazier yet, pair with some stripes.

–>A Bob Dylan concert tee by Rowdy Sprout in front of a gorgeous deep green door surrounded with white stone detailing. That door opened when we were taking pictures. A sweet little dog emerged (accompanied by her owner) much to our delight! We know that petites chiens are the rock stars of the Parisian streets.

Crazy for pretty much everything at Playtime! Fall ’13 is gonna rock!

I couldn’t get enough of all of the amazing styles and inspirational designs at Playtime NYC, which started yesterday. The trade show that attracts a host of domestic and international “indie” brands was held in the West Village, a hop and a skip from Petite Parade, Kids’ Fashion Week. Bouncing between the runway and the show, it was definitely a very fashionable kiddie weekend! Here’s a taste to whet the back to school appetite!

Check out our new Babesta Mini-Lookbook! “About Face”

Check out our first “Lookbook”! Hope you like it!
One trend that ran strong this season was face prints. Jackets, sweatshirts, hats and tees boasted big eyes and animated looks to add some whimsy to kids’ fashion. We’ve paired tops, hats and jackets by Mini Rodini, Bobo Choses and Munster Kids with fab colorful denim by ESP No. 1 and Munster Kids. Here are some of Babesta’s duds that are, as we’ve pointed out, “About Face.”

Grass & Clovers, New At Babesta

I Love New York just got a makeover. Enter Grass & Clovers, whose super cool vintag-y city lovin' tees just arrived at Babesta! We also got some really cute cloud and lightning styles as well as ties & bowties. That's formal–Babesta style.
