Felt sweeties…

March 11, 2013

"felt necklaces for girls"Being Indian, I visit India often as I have loads of family there including my parents.  For me, shopping and eating are always at the top of the agenda in India because I love doing both.  As far as the shopping is concerned, I never really indulge in expensive stuff but instead it’s always about picking up unusual little trinkets and treasures for the home or to wear.  The one thing I never leave India without is a load of bangles, bindi’s and necklaces for my daughter Anya.  She absolutely loves her accessories and will often load up her arms with 20-30 bangles at a time!  Last time we were there we picked up a gorgeous fabric necklace for her which has now become an absolute favourite of mine and Anya’s.  India is a great place to buy colourful and unusual jewellery for kids but since I don’t live there I’m always looking for other avenues too.  And my latest finds are these super sweet handmade necklaces, hair clips and hair ties by Homako.

"pastel hair clips girls"Based in LA, Yoko hand makes all these gorgeous accessories with a definite Japanese vibe to them which isn’t surprising as Yoko is originally from Japan.  I love the soft pastel colours which are perfectly complimented with dark stripes and little unexpected details like the pearls and baubles.  The necklaces are strung on ribbons finished with little coloured felt dots that are such a pretty addition.  Yoko makes jewellery for adults as well but a lot of the kids’ range is designed for mum and daughter to share.  You can get these sweet necklaces and hair accessories at Homako but Yoko has also created an exclusive and beautiful range for the lovely online boutique Minikin which is also very worth checking out.

A few accessories…

"pretty pink accesories for girls"

I think accessories on big girls and little girls look great but I don’t do nearly enough accessorising.  I quite simply forget!  I really want to change this habit and start adding that extra touch to every outfit for my daughter and me.  I love the idea of going for muted coloured clothes and then adding hints of bold and bright colour through the accessories.  I came across that neon and gold necklace today which I loved and that’s what reminded me of the need for accessories in my life!  So I first went looking for some for my daughter and these are 4 that I loved:

1.  Neon and gold necklace by Lieschen Mueller… 2.  Hand-knitted hooded scarf by Ketiketa… 3.  Ilva baby socks with stripe detail by April Showers… 4. Elephant hair ties by Melissa Abram.

"atsuyo et akiko babies and kids"I’ve known about Atsuyo et Akiko for ages and have been meaning to share for a while so here it is today.  It’s a wonderful New York boutique where you can find a little bit of magic.  Magic for babies and a bit for boys but mostly for the girls.  On offer are fabulously girly necklaces, hair pins and tutu’s, shiny sparkly shoes and cute bracelets.  But the other thing that really caught my eye were the tee’s and onesies they have.  I’m not a fan of cartoon character adorned clothes but these one’s with mickey mouse and winnie the pooh just work.  I absolutely love the charcoal tee with the gold mickey silhouette.  There are also other very cool tee’s like the strawberry one and more. 

The collection of goodies at Atsuyo et Akiko is fresh, it’s different and even a bit ecclectic.  The boutique is owned by two ladies, one with a fashion background and the other with a fine arts one.  The marriage of these two backgrounds shines through in their creations and their take on turning everyday fashion in to something a bit more special.  To feel the magic, head to Atsuyo et Akiko and and check out all their wonderful goodies.
