Fabulous Styles From RUUM American Kid’s Wear and Clarks On The Runway at petitePARADE NYC 2014 #RUUMrunway

29 Oct

RUUM American Kid’s Wear recently opened a store in TriBeCa.  When my youngest took notice to the outfits in the store window as we passed by, she immediately had to go in.  She picked out nearly the entire store, because she LOVED all the gorgeous styles that were displayed.  We walked out with her favorite dress, which she wants to wear almost every day. When I was asked to attend petitePARADE’s 7th (bi-annual) fashion show, featuring RUUM American Kid’s Wear, I asked my girls if they wanted to go.   Their eyes lit up and they started picking out their outfits (even though it was a week away).  My youngest picked her favorite RUUM dress and my oldest picked a dress by Isobella & Chloe. 20141028-234903-85743827.jpg On October 19, the girls put on their outfits they and we headed to Bath House Studios on the Lower East Side. They took their seats, waited for the lights to dim and the show to start.  Out first was RUUM American Kid’s Wear, showcasing their Holiday looks for the upcoming season.  There were so many gorgeous styles for girls. Faux fur, dresses for a princess, stylish knit sweaters, and just enough sparkle and shimmer my little girls loved.  Below are some of our favorite looks from RUUM on the runway:

Up next was Clarks shoes, previewing their kids line for Spring 2015.  The mini-models hit the runway with tons of energy, showcasing all you can do in comfortable Clarks shoes.  The stylish tots to tweens danced,  took the dog for a walk, and did back walk overs down the runway. Here are some looks you will see from Clarks this Spring: petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 petitePARADE / Kids Fashion Week, NYC October 2014 - Day 2 My girls had an amazing time watching the kids walk the runway.  They are ready to skip a play date with friends to have a play date with mom to shop for new shoes and  their Holiday outfits.

Discover Brands For Kids With The Lil’Stylers App

The other week I was at the park with my daughter.  Another mom approached me asking about my daughters dress (pictured below).  She wanted to know the brand and store I bought it from.  Like her, I often see cute outfits on children and wonder what brand (s) they are wearing and where their parents purchased it from.

On October 1st, Lil’Stylers, an awesome new iPhone App launched to help moms and dads connect to brands and shop mobile.  I had the opportunity to try Lil’Stylers before the launch and am loving it.  I’ve discovered Pale Cloud, Duke and Duchess, Two Els, Baby Fish, and so many other brands I would have never known about before using Lil’Stylers.  I also like seeing how “stylers” have pieced together smaller, more expensive brands with brands like GAP and Target to create a stylish look for their child.  I’m not the only one loving the App, my oldest loves scrolling through and picking out looks she likes.  It’s helpful knowing style she like when shopping for her because she likes to dress herself and often doesn’t like what I pick.  I’m excited to continue using the App as it grows and more brands join.20131007-220006.jpg

Download the free App in iTunes now to discover new brands,  see the latest trends for children, shop, and share your favorite photos of your “lil’styler(s)”.  Don’t forget to tag the brands featured in your photos. If you see a look you like and a tag with a shopping bag next to it, the brand has joined Lil’Stylers.  Click on the bag and you can connect to their website easily to start shopping.  Check out the Lil’Stylers video to learn how to use the App!
