One of our favorite gifts for girls, now on sale. We want one of each.

We came across the sweet Sarah Jane necklaces at Bel Kai Designs a few years ago and fell in love with this perfect “just because” gift for girls. The illustrations by one of our favorite artists, Sarah Jane, are sentimental, but the pieces are bright, cheery and beautifully handmade. This means my seven-year-old daughter–and even my 11-year-old niece–will actually wear them on her own. That’s a big bonus at the age when the line between cool and “my mom picked this out” is so very blurry.   Each pendant is 1-inch in diameter with an antique sterling silver-plated frame. The chain is 14...

12 Mom-approved two-piece swimsuits for girls. Because they can dress like teens when they are teens. (Maybe.)

It’s our new June tradition for the last several years: Warm weather hits, we’re here with recommendations for very cute, decidedly non-hoochie two-piece swimsuits for girls. In other words, no high cut leopard bikinis (oy), no padded bras (heaven forbid), no appliques that spell out “I’m a heartbreaker” in purple sequins, and definitely no thongs (kill me). Just cute, on-trend two-piece suits in stripes, florals and solids that let little girls just be little girls–as long as we can manage to keep it that way. CMP is an rstyle affiliate   This tankini for girls at Mini Boden comes in three totally...

The prettiest girls’ Easter dresses that your daughters will never want to take off. (For better or for worse.)

One of my favorite things to do each year on Cool Mom Picks is look for the prettiest, sweetest, coolest girls’ Easter dresses in every price. Whether or not you celebrate Easter. To me, spring is just such a long-awaited respite, that getting my daughters one special, lightweight dress that they can wear all spring and summer has become our own annual tradition. I tend to be less into pounds of crinoline, smocking, humongous floral embellishments or scrunchy taffeta; my style leans more towards simple, elegant shapes and fabrics that are dressy, but not quite cotillion-level. Plus if my...

If you’re not a Gilt member yet, here’s 25 very good reasons why you should be.

It’s crazy to imagine that anyone who shops isn’t yet a member of Gilt Group yet. We’ve seen them grow over the years from mere flash sale site, to a major retail force, with men’s clothes, maternity, food, and even city-specific sales. They’re one of the few sites of their kind that have managed to keep quality up and stay relevant–and if you’re not a member yet, now there’s a good reason to join. As in a $25 reason to join. If you sign up now using our invitation link then place your first order of $50+ by April 30...

Stylish watches for kids who have finally learned how to tell time.

It’s not easy to find stylish watches for kids, what with all the licensed cartoon characters out there. But kids have not been forgotten by designer Agni Tilla for her company May 28th which we discovered thanks to a Brika sale. We are smitten with these modern kids’ watches, with fun design details that call our favorite throwback Swatch watches to mind–at least if Swatches ever cost in the under $40 range. Did they? Ten stylish watches for kids are now available in sizes perfect for small wrists. They’re lightweight and waterproof, so when your child forgets to take the watch off...

We love FashionABLE scarves. They’re gorgeous and well made– some of the most stylish scarves we’ve seen anywhere–and their human touch makes us even more devoted fans.

Wrap yourself in pretty with a stack of leather wrap bracelets.

Whether you had the Valentine’s Day you always dreamed of last week or ended the day looking forward to the annual February 15th Chocolate Sale, here’s one gift you can happily give yourself: pretty leather wrap bracelets.  I love that each one is made in a Brika collaboration between leather aficionado Mariah of Btwn Wind & Water, and metal expert T of Upper Metal Class. The end result is striking, with a simple elegance that works just as well with jeans and a tee as it does with a little black dress. And at just $25 each, consider getting a few–the...

The luggage tag that says hands off. Pretty clearly.

Having recently spent oh, a good twenty minutes at a luggage carousel in a panic that my bag wasn’t out yet and that it happened to be the exact same shade of black as every other, with a black luggage tag that blended right in, it’s time for me to move beyond tying a red ribbon to the handle. Which is why I think I may be in love with this Jonathan Adler Luggage Tag.  The color, the type, the message…everything about it is perfect. And also the sale price: it’s currently 1/3 off at Nordstrom. It would also...

Just as we’re starting to dig into all the great sales on kids’ clothes online, we remember the reason why–the new stuff is coming, including lots of drool-worthy designer kids’ clothes. And after getting a peek at the brand new Stella McCartney for Kids line we are ready for more. Behold, some of my favorite not-cheap-at-all styles that you can expect to see on the celeb kids sizes 2-14 this coming spring and summer.
