Paush SS16 “A Sweet Play Date”

Sometimes I find it hard to explain my vision into words. It’s even harder to explain to someone else so they can execute the vision, feeling and style that I dream up in my head.

However, that wasn’t the case this time. Her photographs always speak for themselves. I am proud to finally share with you the 1st delivery of our Paush Spring 16 Look Book, shot by my dear friend and photographer, Katie Ging.

Our official launch date for the 1st Spring delivery is Saturday, February 27 at 11 am PST, available in-store and online!! Mark those calendars!

Paush Spring/Summer 16 “A Sweet Play Date”, embraces the art of play and imagination and to remind us to treasure the sweet memories created with friends. We’re keeping the nostalgia alive with classic silhouettes and playful prints, while welcoming Spring with floral details and colorful embroideries. Life can not be measured by its year, but by the memories created and cherished. Your little ones are sure to have the sweetest childhood memories with Paush.

millipy for sweet threads

We are so thrilled to announce our collaboration with local Mompreneur, Ana Estella from Millipy, a brand hand crafting and designing the cutest, whimsical accessory pieces for your little ones! Millipy is inspired by children and strive to represent the curiosity, energy and uniqueness that every child possesses. It’s no surprise that Millipy offers stand out pieces! 

Sweet Threads had a fun time working on this project with Millipy designing playful crowns and bandana bibs! This collection is inspired by Sweet Threads‘ favorite shop colors and the start of Fall! Sweet touches of tribal woven textiles + Millipy prints were designed into the collection.

Save the date for August 16th for the drop of this exclusive Millipy for Sweet Threads Collection!  The collection will be made available at the Cerritos St. 1st Annual Block Party in Long Beach hosted by Threads Events.  They will also be made available online at www.shopsweetthreads.com August 17th.

A very special thanks to Katie Ging for always capturing the vision. The images are exactly what we expected; playful, whimsical and SWEET!

Model pictured is Ana’s adorable daughter, Amelia!

 

 

 

IN THE TRENCHES

We love it when Sweet Threads finds a great children’s vintage coat, especially when it’s a trench coat! A perfect versatile piece to pick up in the Fall / Winter seasons to keep your little ones warm from the cold. Carry it over into the Spring season to keep the kiddos dry from the rain. Not only do we like to be practical with our children’s fashions, but we gotta keep it fresh too! 🙂 See how we turned our trench coat inspiration into reality!
