Our Grandest Opening

5 years ago, at the age of 32, I was newly married, had a house, worked in the fashion industry and earned good money. I worked hard and played hard. I had amazing friends and family.

I couldn’t be happier, right? Wrong. I was working 40+ hours a week in a fast paced stressful environment. The job itself wasn’t rewarding and gave me a lack of self accomplishment. So, I decided to take charge of my life –  to make lemonade out of lemons. I dug deep about what I could possibly do on my own and after months of research, the vision came. I wanted to start a children’s business, but not just any ordinary children’s business. It had to be fun and unique. I wanted to share it with the world. That’s when we took the streets of local flea markets to sell vintage kids clothes out of our Ice Cream Truck inspired VW Bus and the rest is simply history.

Flea Market

Since then we have grown out of two spaces (our 4th Street and Broadway locations in Long Beach, CA). This year, we finally found a location fitting for our growing business on 2nd St. in Belmont Shore! Being 4x bigger than our first location, this was our biggest space yet. Check out each location we’ve had to see how far we’ve come!

4th St. Location, opened July 2013

Broadway Location, opened January 2015

2nd St. in Belmont Shore, officially opened December 2017

We had our grandest of openings yet this past Sunday on December 3rd from a ribbon cutting event with Third District Councilwoman Suzie Price to an adorably festive marionette puppet show. We even had the pleasure of hosting Crayon Fawn for their pop-up. In all honesty,  we had the absolute BEST time celebrating the pre-holidays in our new location with all of our amazing guests! We dressed the shop in candy cane color balloons by Wild Child Party. Our bellies were happy and full with delicious treats from our favorite Belmont Shore eateries like The Pizza Press, Pietris Bakery, Frosted CupcakeryandLong Beach Creamery! Our neighbors, 2nd St. Beauty even offered mini Mommy & Me makeovers! Our vendors I Love Plum, Sago Mini, Kid O, Candylab, Stay Anchored LB, Mini Melissa, Lil Lemons, Native Shoes, DL1961, Bunnies by the Bay, Petit Collage, Yellow Owl Workshop , Teeny Tiny Optics and Nailmatic generously contributed to our swag bags for our guests! Not to mention, we had theTraveling Photo Bus and photographer,Jeff Zielinski capture all of your smiles that day! And It was definitely a packed house!

4 Ways to Style Velvet

We can’t help but bask in fall fashion and the one trend we find ourselves reaching for and loving the most is the dreamy texture of velvet. Of course, it’s a no brainer that we try to incorporate the fashion world’s hottest trends into micro fashion for our favorite little humans. Here are 4 ways you can style your mini in velvet this fall from some of our beloved velvet products.

We’re absolutely obsessed with yellow this fall season! Yellow velvet takes our signature Paush Heart Romper to a whole new level. Your mini will undoubtedly turn heads in matching yellow Wunderkind Bows, our Paush Mesh Long Sleeve and Joyfolie Mary Janes, creating the perfect October statement outfit.

Paush Mustard Velvet Heart Romper

Channel your little one’s  inner Victorian babe with our Paush hunter green dress and crisp white vintage long sleeve. Compliment this deep green with a hint of mustard yellow for the ultimate trend-setting Fall ensemble

Paush Hunter Green Pinafore

Velvet on velvet on velvet. We’re absolutely in love with our newest accessories: Mandy Tangerine headwraps! Whether you stick with the velvet trend or opt for a classic jersey knit, these pieces are sure to add a cute flair to our heart rompers.

Paush Velvet Heart Romper

Casual, chic and edgy, this vintage jean jacket adds a ‘90s flair to our favorite velvet mauve Paush dress! Go even a little edgier with a mesh long sleeve (for added warmth and style) and your mini will be set for a day out.

Side note: We’re all too excited about carrying Dr. Martens in store! Snag a pair today before it’s too late

Paush Velvet Pinafore

Hope to see you and your fabulous little ones soon!
