I am totally and completley obsessing over polyvore, a website that allows you to make your own collages out of images you found on the web. Adriana introduced me and now I can stop messing around on that site! Anyone else on polyvore?

A look into our shop…

I wanted to post a few pictures of our shop. We have been adding a lot of inventory and sprucing things up a bit.

I hope you like it!

Mannequin featuring Babylady Inc., Wovenplay, and Les Pompons De Violettes.

I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

I used a mix of new and antique furniture.

I am a bit obsessed with keeping everything neat and tidy.

Behind The Scenes

I wanted to share a few behind the scenes pictures from our look book shoot. I can’t wait to debut the beautiful photos taken by Sonya Shermer. I was really nervous about shooting with so many toddlers but it actually worked out just fine. We did two looks for each kids and the first went swimmingly. The second was okay, we provided lots of toys and did our best to wrangle them. By the end all the kids were starting to get antsy so the timing was perfect. We had to do a few last minute outfit changes since some were a bit more opinionated about their ensembles then others. But all in al it was a great day and I am so happy with the results! A big thanks to everyone involved! I couldn’t have done it without you!

The amazing Liana helping out little Sierra with her tutu.

Liana is the founder of the Boston based fashion blog, New Brahmin. She helped to style the shoot and deal with all the logistics. She is a fantastic stylist and we couldn’t have made this shoot happen without her help!

Sierra is the daughter of Lauren from Before I was a Mom and Craig,one half of the blog The Hipster Dad.

playtime new york: esp no. 1

I’ve discussed before how much I LOVE this brand. ESP no.1 is incredible. Super high quality which means extra durable AND every single piece is UNISEX. So it can just keep getting passed down. The cuts are classic and the color palette is simple but has a great deal of impact. No outrageous designs, just good, clean, quality clothing. That’s what Monkey & The Bug is all about. I loved visit the ESP no 1 booth at playtime. They incorporated some lovely shades of yellow and green and the brightly colored denim is beautiful.

gauzy fleece sweatshirts…sooo comfy
