Shine Bright Like a Diamond

We’ve got gems galore from Mini Rodini this season!  Now we know that technically diamonds don’t shine, they reflect; but because they’re reflecting the sheer awesomeness of your kid’s style we figure we can get away with the phrase.

We think Mimi had it right with regards to styling the print, but you can definitely get away with a ton of cool outfits by breaking up her look into separates.  We’d love to hear how you style your kids’ gems, so hit the comments and let us know!

Dressed to the Nines

Be dashing in the snow this winter in this gorgeous velvet tux from Mini Rodini.  We love it for special occasions or for making every day occasions a little bit more special (Hey, if I’d had this as a kid, I don’t know if you could have paid me to take it off.  I love it!).  Seriously, we can’t talk about how lux this tux is enough…

Mini Rodini loves Snow Leopards this season and so do we!  Their animal prints are always super fun, but the snow leopards are especially cool this season.  We’re kind of all about the Snow Leopard Sweatshirt (you can even complete the look and grab the ear hat here); it’s a great way to express your child’s wild side and it’s super cozy.  Or you can go extra wild with the Berlin Cheetah Jeans which add a great pop of color on any dreary winter day.  Or you can go uber-wild and do both.  Whatever you decide to do, let us know in the comments!  We love hearing about what awesome outfits you come up with…

The Swedish Invasion

We’re super excited right now,  since we just received part 3 of our Mini Rodini shipment!  We’ve officially received everything for Fall/Winter 2013 from this designer, which means we get to get busy doing one of our favorite things: creating outfits!  We’ll be posting about all this new stuff – and there is a lot of it – for a while to come, but we’ll give you a sneak peak….

Since we check everything out upon receiving which entails unfolding everything, I held this one up and I’m pretty sure I’d fit in the biggest size we carry. The sleeves would be a little short, but I kind of want it…

This Snow Leopard sweater is definitely one of our favorites. It’s the perfect mix of wild and cozy for this winter.

Pandas and Bowties!? And TOP HATS!?!? Where’s the interobang key when you need it? This jacket is too cute for conventional punctuation.

Maybe you guessed it already, but we’re a little wild over the snow leopard prints this season. But come on, how can you not be super excited about them?

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

This Just In! Jimmy Boots Make a Splash

Jimmy Boot - Yellow Rain.Jimmy Hollywood Pink.300_cmyk Rain.Jimmy Regatta Blue.300_cmyk

Native Shoes’ new Jimmy Rain boot in three fantastic colors brighten even the greyest days!  100% washable, odor resistant, shock absorbent, and waterproof, in these boots your kids will make a splash and you won’t have to worry them jumping around (which is good, because you won’t be able to stop them).

I especially love the classic yellow rain boot.  I’m thinking pair it with Hansel from Basel’s Nautical stripe tights and Mini Rodini’s Star dress for a girl, or La Miniatura’s Davy the Whale sweater and Crayon Skinny Jeans in Ocean Blue for a boy… But that’s just me.  These boots are an exciting, easy addition to any outfit.
