Maternity couture with a due date

I had this dress when I was pregnant that made me feel like a goddess. I wore it to two weddings, several parties, and a couple of dates. And then I had the babies and passed it on to another mama like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Maternity Dress. “This is going to make you look and feel amazing,” I said, and then a tear slipped out. Since maternity clothes cost so much– especially high fashion dresses– wouldn’t it be better if you could just rent what you need and then ship it back? Yeah, we think so, too....

60% off pre-loved French couture for kids. Ooh la la!

We absolutely hate watching one of our favorite boutiques go… especially when it’s a sweet shop like Apricot Culotte. The one good thing about it is their closeout sale. We said je t’aime to Apricot Culotte when we fell in love with its concept: pre-loved baby and kid clothing from top French designers like La Queue du Chat and Petit Bateau offered at astonishingly low prices. Now, those prices are even lower: 60% off the entire site. Apricot Culotte is closing its doors, so every last item of gorgeous French clothing has got to go. Sigh. We’ll miss you, Apricot Culotte, but...

The Hanna Andersson sale gets us ready for swimsuit season (hooray!)

So I’m clicking around the Hanna Andersson webshop, just seeing what’s what for spring, because I love how durable their clothes are, especially if you’ve got multiple kids and are familiar with the phrase “hand-me-down.” But hey! As it turns out…big sale! If you’re looking for girls or baby dresses, swimsuits or cover-ups, the Hanna Andersson sale makes this the perfect time. I love this stripey girls sundress, now $20 down from $28. Same for the cute pillowcase dresses and tunics which also double as handy beach cover-ups–although the tunics are a bit more at $30, down from $36....

Treehouse Tykes – A new flash sale site that stands out from the rest

Another members-only flash sale site, you ask? Well, yes. But this one’s got an awesome charity aspect to it, plus the kinds of kids’ brands for up to 70% off, that we’d happily buy at full price. The new flash sale site, Treehouse Tykes, not only tempts are wallets by offering CMP favorites like Manny & Simon and 7 A.M. Enfant, but has a very cool way to shop while doing major good: 10% of net proceeds will go to the school or charity of your choosing. Another way Treehouse Tykes is different is their “10-10-10” program. Every time...

New spring shoes from See Kai Run – some girls get all the luck

While we’re all swooning over bright colorful handbags making their way into our closets of late, kids’ shoes are definitely on the same path. And the new spring line from CMP favorite See Kai Run, is featuring what might be one of my favorite girls collections from them yet, loaded with stylish bursts of color. The Natalia shoes for girls (above) just make me happy to look at them, with that aqua upper and the bright poppy accent. Like my girls wouldn’t go totally batty for those. Plus they’ve got that durable construction and flexible rubber, non-slip sole that...

Adorable, eco-friendly baby clothes and gifts, 50%-80% off until they’re gone (sniffle)

It’s bittersweet when we see a mom-owned boutique that we love, close up shop. What Every Baby Needs, say it ain’t so! But if there’s an upside, it’s the amazing discounts. You can now score 50% off everything on the site and up to 80% off sale and clearance items. Serious steals here, mamas. We’ve always adored the huge selection of cute baby boy shirts and toddler boy shirts shirts (so hard to find!) at the shop not to mention the great selection of girls clothes, baby slings, baby toys (like these awesome crochet rattles from Anne Clare-Petit) and...

Fabulous kids clothes, 60% off. And no, you can’t squeeze into them yourself.

I like me a good sale, especially on kids’ clothes. And there’s something about the words 60% OFF that force me to click, especially when it’s from one of my favorite, durable, stylish kids labels, Polarn O. Pyret. The Polarn O. Pyret fall/winter kids sale has some great options for babies through tweens. The discounts are so steep, if you’re done shopping for the season, buy a size or two up and stock up for next year. These are the kinds of styles that don’t go out of style so quickly, and they’re made to be passed down for...

Cute kicks for a cause

It’s rare enough to see a good sale on well-made and stylish kids’ shoes from brands like Pediped. But when that sale gives 50% of sales to charity, we’re highly motivated to shop! Take those Jordyn sneakers up there. Regular price? $32. Sale price? $25. Gives to charity? $12.50. That’s a deal you can feel good about. During the Pediped Foundation Sale, you can buy newborn to big kid shoes at a special sale price. And then half of that sale price is given directly to the Pediped Foundation, which has given over $1,500,000 to kids in need since...

A sweet new line for tots and tweens–hold the bling

When I go shopping for my nieces, I often find myself wishing I could just shrink my own wardrobe for them. There are so many brands out there that feel it’s necessary to splash sequins all over their duds or plaster them with silly little sayings. Thankfully, there’s a new girls-only brand designing adorable clothes that have neither bling nor catch phrases. The label Millions of Colors is an all-girls collection of super-cute separates for mini-sophisticates ages 2-12. Frankly, there’s nothing I don’t want from this label–for myself. The winter collection is full of pretty cardigans, chic tweed coats...

These tights were made for booting

I pretty much live in boots all winter long. Which means my drawers are also home to a healthy stock of stocking and leggings. The problems with stockings and boots though, is that I often still need to wear socks over them to keep my toes warm, and keep the stocking from catching on any boot innards that might be less than gentle. And then, depending on the boot, that may mean it starts feeling a little snug for comfort. Enter a brilliant new product called Bootights. You can see where this is going, right? Bootights are like a...

Wolford Stockings – because New Year’s Eve is calling

Forget investing in a new LBD; if you have any hopes of getting out this New Year’s Eve and want to update your look, I’d invest in the accessory of the year: funky, sexy stockings. If you’re not familiar with the Austrian label Wolford, these are about the splurgiest, spendiest, most amazingly constructed stockings on the planet. Let’s just say there are pairs I’ve had for more than 10 years that still look great. So I was pretty happy to see that a lot of them are on sale up to 50% off right now. (One caveat before you...

Dry winter skin? No thank you.

I’ve never been much of a shea butter gal. I know there are women who swear by it, but at least for my skin, it tends to be a little too gloppy and a little too rich. So I was somewhat surprised to find a shea-based face cream that I’m actually loving for these drying days of winter. [don’t miss a fantastic discount after the jump!] All of the products from beauty writer turned beauty product creator Elizabeth Dehn are 100% natural, with lots of nutritious minerals and no toxic ingredients at all. And oh the packaging is so...

Hatch – The chic line of maternity fashion, now on sale

When I first saw the new maternity line, Hatch, I wanted to order every single piece in the collection. Now here’s the funny thing–I wasn’t even pregnant then. [don’t miss a great discount and a tie-in with one of our favorite charities after the jump] Hatch was born when designer Ariane Goldman, the founder of twobirds Bridesmaid, wanted to create a line that stylish women would wear before, during and after pregnancy. She totally got the fact that mamas–no matter how much money they did or didn’t have–loathe the idea of shelling out for something they can only wear...

Great gifts for your kids that benefit their school, too

I admit it: I’m a fan of pretty much every one of those daily-deals sites. Hand me an exclusive membership to sweet deals on designer merch and I get a little thrill.  And this new site totally supersizes that thrill in the coolest way possible, because every purchase I make goes to my daughter’s own school. Treehouse Tykes is a private-member site that features awesome brands of kids’ clothing, toys, books, and furniture–up to 70% off. But here’s the key difference between it and other sales sites: 10% of your purchase goes to the school, or charitable organization of your...

Expensive fashion for those with more modest wallets

Designer clothes tend to be timeless and well made — I guess that is why the magazines call it “investment dressing.” However, the reality is that most moms simply cannot afford to invest thousands of dollars on one article of clothing, no matter how timeless and chic it is. Even if we want it really, really bad, and it would look super cute on us. Yes, you could always hit up the consignment shops — but who has time to do that with kids in tow? And of course, there’s eBay, but how do you know that item you...
