IT list: baby bibs

The Egg by Susan Lazar pop-up at 124 Hudson is now open featuring clothes from newborn to 6 years old, accessories, bedding, and books, toys, and games (including a Jade’s Toy Box mini-store). The space is huge, so they’re are looking to create a hub, offering Mommy and Baby classes, storytelling time, coloring and reading areas for Mommies and Babies.

Open seven days a week.

About Egg by Susan Lazar

Egg hatched in 2003, when designer Susan Lazar decided to create a lifestyle brand designed around the needs of stylish mothers and children. In 2006, Susan and Adam Neumann partnered, and with their shared vision, have been building Egg ever since. With her emphasis on love and family, Lazar creates products that are modern and beautiful, highlighting the love between parent and child.

Egg Baby uses natural fabrics and clean, simple designs- with no frills or gimmicks in sight. The result is fashionable yet timeless baby clothes of the highest quality.

The Darling that inspired Darling Clementine is owner Lindsay’s daughter Juliette, whose sweet stylish ways have led Lindsay all over searching for special, one of a kind items to fill up her little world. Lindsay has searched high and low to curate the inspired collection of children’s wares that is Darling Clementine. The shop consists of many brands found in her own Brooklyn backyard as well as hand picked items from around the world.

LSF is thrilled to introduce guest blogger,  Lindsay Meyer-Harley, owner of Darling Clementine.

When babies enter the picture many things have to get chucked (think glass coffee table, heirloom vases on low shelves and the friday night partying), one thing that often enters is a sense of responsibility. Both the parental kind as well as in an overall sense.

Wanting to protect our planet seems to come hand in hand with wanting to protect our children. Sometimes though we get torn between what is right and what we like. Well, I’m happy to say it’s never been easier to shop for your baby/toddler while being gentle to Mother Earth. I strive to stock Darling Clementine with my favorite finds from around the world all the while having the least impact on the world around us. I never compromise quality, chicness or personal taste when it comes to eco-picks.

The site is full of eco finds, here are some of my absolute favorites!

1. Go Gently Baby – Jersey Scarf: Stay cozy warm this Winter with an organic cotton scarf in the most delicious colors. Soft rose, stone or the perfect shade of olive green.

2. Egg Baby – Alpaca Mouse Hat: This darling hat comes to us from a local Brooklyn company. Gotta love local.

 3. Little Twig – Conditioning Detangler: This leave-in or wash out detangling conditioner is free of nasty chemicals and chock full of only the best ingredients. Safe for even the most sensitive of skin (and for Mamas too, this works great as a leave in!)

 4. 3 Green Moms – Lunchskins Sandwich Bag: Use (and reuse) this baby for all your sandwich and snack needs, can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher a gazillion times over.

5. Penguin Publishing – Stuck by Oliver Jeffers: Oliver Jeffers proves again in his latest children’s book offering to capture our hearts with Stuck. All Oliver Jeffers books on the site are signed!

source for style: fashionably prepping for baby with @julsgarces

LSF was thrilled to speak with Julie Garces, the ever-stylish NYC event producer who is anxiously waiting for the arrival of baby…tweeting what she eats, loves, wears, and does.

When asked by Ehrin of Little Style Finder to be a guest blogger, I was thrilled. I had to go on a hiatus with my blog about a year ago and miss it so much! Sweetening the deal, was the request to create a post on my baby’s nursery and all the clothing I have splurged on while I wait for his arrival (arriving in mere weeks!) . Let’s just say, this is the most fun I’ve had since MAKING the baby haha!

As an event planner in NYC by day and executing events very precisely, I have what I like to refer to as my “creative-ADD” at home. I start so many projects and rarely have time to finish them so with the doctor giving me a due date, I pretty much had a deadline handed to me on a platter. Decorate Room and Buy clothes.

So, for the last 6 months my husband and I tackled a bedroom for baby and collected some of the coolest clothes on the market (so we like to think!)…. Side note: my husband, Gustavo,  is in the music business, grew up in Manhattan immersed in the culture of graffiti and has worked with some of the best bands … you’ll notice his influences in the nursery! Here are some our favorite elements of the room and stylish wears!

In the room:

  • Glider & Union Jack Pillow: Lullaby Rockers & ETSY
  • Stuffed Animals: Buy Buy Baby and we already named them! Bibbits (frog) & Alice Cooper (zebra)
  • Backstage Passes: All the concerts/ events produced by my husband
  • Framed art: Homemade by me (I sell them on ETSY, they are framed custom scenes from children’s books!)
  • Lamp: painted on wall by my husband
  • Mommy Blanket: Buy Buy Baby (softest thing in the room)
  • Carpet & Sheepskin Throw: Ikea (our dog Luna’s favorite spot in our loft these days.)
  • Black Paint: Chalkboard Finish (to make it easy for my husband to draw/ erase/ redraw on!)
In the wardrobe:
  • Lumber Jack Onesie: gifted (this is going to be his “coming home” outfit because I think it’s so stinkin’ cute!)
  • Lightening Bolt Sweater: Oeuf (purchased from this great store called Les Petits Chapelais in Soho)
  • T-shirt, Jodhpur Sweatpants, Deconstructed Vest: All Saints (like mother like son… his closet will be stocked with All Saints!)
  • Peace Sign Pants: Go Gently Baby (can’t wait to see these pants filled with a diapered bum!)
