roll your own

I love it when the Brits use the word 'bespoke' not sure why, it just sounds cool. so now we have the latest attempt at letting the masses design their own clothes. go check out Styleshake, choose a fabric, design a dress and it shows up in 10 days. Handmade, bespoke fashion from London... ah, it's too good to be true, no delivery yet outside the UK!

apparently, they've got more than 1,000 designs created already (once you do a design, others can buy it). Looks fairly pricey, $330 in the example I saw.

I must say, I find the grey mannequins a bit creepy!

no word on when kid clothes will be on the menu but we'll keep an eye out. of course, we'd really like to have access to some oilily fabrics. of course, we'd have to come up with a London address where they could send that fabulous girls holiday dress

Okkies for Boys

Give him some rugged and hip stlyes this season with Okkies. A line created for boys, comfortable, washable and yet stylish. Tie waist so there's no tugging and pulling to get them down, room for play. The Okkies Charcoal Camo Pant should not be overlooked. The Okkies Thermal O Tee's are great basics that can be worn with just about any of the pants. Take a look, once you give Okkies a try you'll be hooked!

back to school

ok, we're already starting to see some of the stuff for back to school for fall 2007.

according to Sally Lee (Parents Editor), what's hot this year will be:

"We're seeing a lot of preppy and plaid this season — dresses, pants and skirts in corduroy, dark denim, argyle vests and kilts. T-shirts with attitude are also popular. Boys are adopting the "extreme sports" skater or snowboarder look, with baggy pants and jeans and skater shoes. Girls are wearing a tomboy look with a girly edge — cargo pants with a pink bow belt. Boys and girls are wearing lots of fall colors, like burgundy, burnt orange and brown, and stripes are really big. "

With this in mind, here's some neat stuff from one of our favorites for boys, Charlie Rocket or this tough layered, guitar boys shirt from City Threads

for your girls clothes, you can try Pampolina, this girls skirt feels like back to school to me.

Jottum is up!

Yes, our first experience with this fabulous and deep Dutch line, you can see Jottum here.

for me, this Jottum Tanja Skirt and Set is unique in children clothes.

Here's some background on the Dutch brand:

Jottum! is a cry of excitement.

And also the imaginative brand of clothing made in Edam. It owes its fame to Dutch quality and boundless originality.And the name? Well, that's a strange story.Since the 14th century, jots have been appearing in the small Dutch city Edam. Eye-witnesses describe cheeky little chaps with long arms and legs. They always wear yellow caps. Jots simply love cheese, from sweet-milk to cheddar (and even grated). For centuries, the population of Edam has been guarding its warehouses. They were forced to: a hungry jot is resourceful. Between 1920 and 1929 they launched a veritable invasion. Cheeses disappeared by their dozens.Edam was in an uproar.

But the tide turned on 21 June 1929. That night, the seamstress Klaar Klosje caught a sleepy jot. Her triumphant cry Jottum! echoed through the town. (Roughly translated it means "I've got him!") Klaar immediately noticed the jot's cute clothes. After some prodding, the jot admitted that they made their own clothes. And had been doing sofor centuries. In subdued as well as eye-batting colours. And from fabrics that are perfect for adventurers - jots love rough and tumble. Shortly afterwards, the jots entered into a unique agreement with the Edammers. In exchange for 50 kilos of cheese a week, they would help Klaar Klosje to design children's clothes. To express her gratitude, the seamstress named the clothing line Jottum. This agreement with thejots - which is framed and hangs on our wall - has never been changed. Nor has our conviction that children are entitled to the best. This applies to cheese, but equally to clothes.Jottum. Dutch honesty.

Helping Hand

I wanted to pass along some information and was hoping that you may be interested in offering a helping hand. There is nothing more heartbreaking that a sick child. There is a non-profit organization called Orange County Foundation for Oncology Children and Families that is a volunteer-run organization providing year-round recreational and social activities designed to foster supportive relationships for pediatric cancer patients and their families. These children with cancer are fighting the battle of their lives, and organizations like this can offer hope and give them a chance to be a kid during a incredibly difficult time in their lives.

There are so many ways you can help, through volunteering and donations. This organization is under jeopardy, because they are non-profit they depend on donations and volunteers. Please take a minute too look at the website and see if you can help
