Truthfully speaking, I never thought high-tops would come back. I remember my favorite outfit when I was little: Reebok high-tops, jean shorts (knee-length, rolled cuffs), aand a white t-shirt with a green waist-tied shirt over the top of it. Oh, and a side ponytail. Cannot forget the side ponytail. The 80s and early 90s were a very strange time fashion-wise, but apparently some elements were a good enough idea to bring back. Fashion is fascinating because it is very circular. If something was once a trend and that trend dies, it will come back in good time. So high-tops. Not the most comfortable shoe, and not something that will ever be fashionable on adults ever again in my opinion, but pretty adorable for babies (example 334324523 of the "Babies Can Pull Off Anything Rule"). From Gucci, these Coda high-top sneakers are made from soft pink leather with durable rubber soles and sweet pink laces. Find them for a nominal cost of $235.00 at Neiman Marcus.

Cannot lie... the softly-colored embroidered onesie and bib are by far my favorite. Have you been to Saks lately? If not, open a new tab in your browser right now. Even if you are at work. Keep a half-finished spreadsheet handy in case your boss walks by. But you have to go to Saks' website and check out all of the adorable winter baby items... then spend the rest of the day shocked that you are excited for SNOW.
Ahh... a conundrum we have here. Traditionally, I am not a huge fan of Ralph Lauren's baby collection. It's not that I dislike what they do, it just doesn't do much for me. But now they had to go and make a three piece bib gift set with tartan. I LOVE TARTAN. You with this round, Ralph Lauren; I think these are fabulous. Even with the tartan and dark colors, in my opinion these would be perfect for both the gentlemen and the ladies. And, with dark colors, less showing of stains! What more could you ask for? Find this perfect Christmas gift (oh yes I just went there) at Children Salon.
It has been so much fun (my Grandma always says that is not proper English but oh well... sorry Grandma) to watch Bonnie Baby's flawless collection grow and change ever since their big entrance into the wonderful world of high-end baby clothes. Breaking away from only carrying super-soft cashmere, now Bonnie Baby offers amazing cotton items like this four piece gift set. Made from baby-soft stretchy cotton, this sweet apple pattern set comes with a romper, hat, blanket, and bunny toy. The perfect gift for a special baby boy in your life? I think so. Find it for $123.00 at Children Salon.

Long story short: the unexpected is never far away. Be grateful for what you have; appreciate it with every ounce of your being. You just never know when you could lose something that you hold very, very dear. With that being said, Designer Baby will be back up and running starting this coming Sunday! We apologize for the unexpected and unannounced break, but are looking forward to a return to normalcy and a return to chatting about beautiful baby things. Thank you all :)
