Kiddie Couture

I think I like to shop for pretty things for someone else as much as I like to shop for myself. I found this adorable little dress at Bloomingdale's. It's the "Ralph Lauren Children's Wear Toddler Girl Abree Cotton Dress." (Try saying that quickly three times) Available in Blue (shown here) and pink. It comes in size 2T, 3T and 4T. Is it ever cute or what? This got me to shopping and I just had to see what Nordstrom had. Where 3 little Angels are wearing "Us Angels Satin Tulle With Rosebuds." Available in White in sizes 2T -14. More than unique and special for your child, nieces, cousins, that special child in your life--whomever makes you want to run right out and buy these! The next two items are by Phillip Lim. OMG! The Trench Coat is too cute! It has a notched collar with bow detail, double-breasted front, button shoulder epaulettes, slanted side pockets, inverted back pleat; button closures to adjust ventilation. It is quite simply a little work of art. The Yellow, Petal Blouse and Black, Pleated Umbrella Skirt just make you go AAAwww!!! Available at or e-luxury. Before you yell at me, in the interest of equal time, I'll be doing a piece on clothing for little boys but I could not resist these items.

Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.
