Featured Designer: Hucklebones

Hucklebones London. A children's clothing line full of high-end fabrics and color hues that can only be described as luxurious, modern-vintage, and timeless. With backgrounds in both women's fashion and graphics/illustration, designers Zoe and Dan felt inspired to create something that would give a little extra excitement to the market of high end toddler fashion....and thus Hucklebones was born.

The inspiration for many of their designs comes from Zoe and Dan's favorite pastime of wandering around French brocante and antique fairs. Hucklebones children's clothing mimics the silhouette of high end fashion in that much work is put into the shape, cut, and fit of each piece. Little ones will not only look fabulous...but they will feel fabulous wearing the latest Hucklebones wool coat. And parents will feel even better because this high quality fashion label creates garmets that can be handed down to the next generation...because the exceptional quality will last forever.

The Fall/Winter 2008 collection includes a beautiful blend of designs using 100% silks, pure wools, and cashmeres. If only they made a line for adults! Our favorite item from Hucklebones this season is the Mustard Seed Double Breasted Coat. Made from pure Italian wool, it will keep your little girl extra warm this winter. The Gilet is another must-have! Also available in mustard, its a great piece that can be used over a sweater as a jacket or to keep off the chill over a long sleeved knit. Pair with the Dotty Bow Skirt in forest green and turquoise polka dot.

Hucklebones is stocked in high end boutiques around London, Copenhagen, and several online boutiques. You may also shop their online shop at Hucklebones is offering a 10% discount to Baby Style Watch readers. The promo code is 'holly' and is valid until the end of November.

Dollhouse Giveaway!

Baby Style Watch is dedicated to featuring clothing trends for fashion-forward tots. But from time to time we discover products for kids that we just can't pass up sharing with our the Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse by Caring Corners.

This is not your typical's one that will truly increase your child's imaginative play, while teaching her to practice sharing, caring, and prepare for age appropriate responsibilities. Using helpful hints, playful prompts, silly songs, and sound, the Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse nurtures positive behavior while your little one explores twelve different adorable rooms - each with it's own interactive surprise.

One of our editors recently received the Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse for her four-year old daughter Hannah. After just one evening of play it is now her favorite (and most talked about) toy! She loves exploring each room - looking for new buttons to push and waiting for new sounds, songs, or lessons from Mrs. Goodbee. Some of our favorite features we know little girls will love include the baby cradle that cries, the toilet that flushes, and there is even a desk lamp that actually turns on!

Why will moms love this? The Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse comes with a set of stickers to help create the "Good Deeds Garden". Moms can reward their daughters (and siblings) for good behavior by letting them choose a sticker to add to the flower garden. And of course there is the obvious reason - little girls will be captivated by the dollhouse for hours, allowing mom the much-needed time for rest or to get things done around the house.

This week, Learning Curve is giving away a Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse to one lucky Baby Style Watch reader. To enter, simply join our mailing list. Or - if you are already a subscriber please send an e-mail entry to The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, October 29th. To learn more about the dollhouse, a commercial is available on You Tube.

Peek-a-boo Paperie

Baby Style Watch is stepping outside of the box today. Although we typically review clothing and accessories - we couldn't keep this a secret! If you are looking for something completely different and unique when it comes to baby birth announcements, then you must check out Jill Haydinger's designs at Peek-a-boo Paperie.

The company began with the birth of her beautiful neice, Hannah, a baby full of personality! The two sisters joked how she had quite a set of lungs and would make a good singer - and so the "Born to Rock" birth announcement was born. Jill later founded Peek-a-boo Paperie, a line of lighthearted, edgy, and fun customizable birth announcements.

Going beyond the typical shades of pink and blue, Peek-a-boo Paperie designs truly express the uniqueness of each baby's personality. Inspiration for her announcements comes from the nicknames and affectionate terms many parents call their newborns such as "Our Little Sweet Pea" and "Our Little Monster".

Why will you love Peek-a-boo Paperie? They are the first birth announcement site to use flex software, which gives you the flexibility to place your baby's photo into the announcement online and resize, rotate, and crop them online before ever placing an order. How cool is that!! Top sellers at Peek-a-boo Paperie include "Bad to the Bone from Birth", "Born to Rock", and Life is Sweet". Our personal favorite is the "Former Wombmates" for newborn twins. Be sure to check back around the holidays for their ultra cool line of Christmas cards and announcements to show off your little one in style!
