The new Hayden-Harnett clutches and wallets: Awesome holiday gift on sale, check.

My obsession with indie designer bag and accessory label Hayden-Harnett is getting–well, a little obsessive. And these new clutches are an amazing gift for the stylish women on your list, especially at a sale price this week only. Through Sunday, save 25% on the new wallets, including this fabulous leather Bardot Pouch with python print. I’m having trouble choosing between the solid practical black (always my inclination), a poppy fun green, or the more daring multi colored python print. Considering the price is already good at $58 but drops down to $44 with the discount, maybe I don’t have to choose...

The designer diaper bag you won’t give up with the diapers

It’s been a while since I’ve found a designer diaper bag that made me wish for a do-over on the diaper bags I carried during my own early stroller-pushing days. And now, here are three from one of my favorite designers.     While Marc Jacobs may not know nothin’ about birthing no babies, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Eliz-a Baby Bag shows he still has it when it comes to chic accessories. The quilted nylon bag looks luxe in wearable taupe or black, whether or not anyone realizes there’s a changing pad in there, or a bottle in one of...

More to love: Rent the Runway adds plus sizes

You could say a few of us here have become quite the evangelists for Rent the Runway. After seeing Kristen strut her stuff on a Las Vegas business trip in two gorgeous designer dresses, I tried it myself for an event this past spring, and fell in love with the clothes, the service, the style–everything. So I’m glad even more women will get to reap the benefits with the addition of their brand new plus size line.   Rent the Runway Plus is so awesome for women sizes 14-22 who feel more Badgley-Mischka than Lane Bryant. In fact, they happen...

The Orla Kiely baby bag: designer on the outside, diapers on the inside

Since I love everything Orla Kiely, I’m so glad to see this London designer out with a cool new diaper bag for moms who don’t want to trade their sense of style for their sense of practicality. The Orla Kiely Baby Bag is so great looking for fall. I love that while it looks all fancy, it’s made from a coated canvas that wipes clean, has tons of pockets, and the nylon interior is made for those spills we moms wish we didn’t have to deal with but always do. There’s even a coordinated changing pad–which might be the only way...

So we are beyond honored (seriously) to find ourselves interviewed this week on her excellent, style-savvy blog. Click over to her TasteMaker Series and learn a little bit about our Mother’s Day plans, beauty essentials, must-have apps, and of course our favorite RM products on our Mother’s Day wishlists.

The kids’ table is the place to be with Marimekko’s fun, fancy dishes

I love using colorful matching dish sets for my kids’ snacks and meals. Not to mention, I swear it makes my kids eat better. And now, there’s a new line of children’s dinnerware from Marimekko–yes, the design house responsible for the iconic bold prints that may be on your couch cushions or even baby clothes–that I’m totally in love with. Made from durable porcelain–so not for babies–the four different kids’ dish sets include a plate, a bowl, and a mug. On the plus side, porcelain means microwaves, dishwashers, ovens and freezers are all fair game.   Now I will...

Adler-awesome: stuffed toys with big, bold style

I suppose it’s just my luck that now that my youngest has outgrown her nursery, I’m finding all sorts of cool nursery decor and accessories. But that’s why I love Jonathan Adler’s Junior collection so much, because it works as well for babies as it does for older kids–especially his new line of stuffed toys that I can’t stop looking at.  {Don’t miss your chance to bring home an adorable Adler owl, just after the jump!} The new Jonathan Adler Junior stuffed toys are what you might expect from one of my favorite designers: bold, bright, and quirky.  Since...
