Title: Co-owner of Beyond Adorable Kids
What inspired you to start beyondadorable.net? Beyond Adorable Kids is a collaboration between me and my sister Vanessa who had worked on merchandising and retail management for over 10 years. Our inspiration came from shopping. After Madison was born, we were always looking for that unique and stylish outfit which is often elusive due to limited selection from nearby stores. We decided to open an online boutique to put together a collection and share our favorite finds.
What do you look for in clothing/accessories companies when buying for the boutique? We look for style and quality that is within a reasonable price point, as well as, basics that are easily mixed and matched.
What is your favorite brand and why? We love the children’s label from the Philippines called googoo&gaga. They specialize in art driven designs for newborns and toddlers. You don’t often see that kind of detail in children’s clothing. When we first saw their collection, we fell in love with its uniqueness and knew we wanted to bring them to the US. Beyond Adorable was their first US distributor.
What advice would you give to parents shopping for their children? Do you find that most parents take the same stylistic approach with dressing their children as they do with themselves? Most parents shopping for their kids incorporate their style and taste in clothing. Create an outfit that is playful. My daughter likes to mix and match colors. Each child is unique and so is their style.

GooGoo & Gaga takes great care in creating one of a kind designs that are very art-driven. All prints are on limited edition runs.
Their products are made of 60% polyester and 40% cotton. The “all over” look of each piece is achieved by using sublimation printing technology. The nature of this printing technique creates a unique piece of art every time—no two are exactly alike
Not only is each product unique but this process also produces a super-soft piece of wearable art. No thick ink against your baby’s skin! The only drawback from wearing googoo&gaga is all the attention that your babies will surely get.
