What’s better than one Sweet Threads? Two! We celebrated our grand opening of our brand new Costa Mesa store at The Lab Anti Mall on May 4th with our new neighbor, Prism Boutique.

To start the morning off our customers lined up early to score some sweet swag from brands: Tiny Whales, Mini MelissaSunnylifeBunnies by the BayAngel Dear, Sass & BelleChronicle BooksPleiades DesignsSan Diego Hat and Wunderkin. They were so excited to get swag and see the new store with all the sweet custom decor by Lorem. We made sure to make the day extra special for our customers and mommies celebrating Mother’s Day with sweet treats from Sweet & Saucy and Cheeze Be With You and popups with Seaesta Surf and Rylee & Cru. We can’t forget about the amazing party decor by We Poppin and ball pit by Mesh Kids Co. When the kids were tired of playing in the ball pit, we had a special DIY Cactus Craft Station while mommies were doing the real deal and planting their own cacti right next door at Prism Boutique. To keep the memories alive from our grand opening our customers got to take home the cutest watercolored keepsake from Chasing Linen.

Jester, Strong Man and Clown

Nothing better than a good ‘ole fashioned circus theme! To dress like a Jester, wear an Iloveplum tutu with circus inspired vest, or blouse. While the Strong Man shows off his huge muscles in a Misha and Puff Romper and bootsWe can’t forget about the clown in one of our favorite sweaters.  The handmade hats by Little Blue Olive are the perfect touch to bring the party together.

Festive Fashion | Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is all about embracing a culture and there’s nothing we love more than diversity. If you’ve been invited to a Cinco de Mayo celebration this year, you probably understand that choosing the best outfit is as important as the festivities themselves. Besides, it’s always a good idea to dress for the occasion. Looking festive this Cinco de Mayo is probably already on your to-do list but have you thought about what outfit your mini is going to be rocking yet? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back on this one and compiled a few outfit ideas that incorporate the bold and bright colors that celebrate an amazing culture to ignite your inspiration.

Close to home

We created an outfit for your little girl to embrace her Mexican heritage with our vintage pieces and matching accessories.

IMG_8467Vintage Traditional Chiapas Dress ($29), Kylie Sunglasses by Teeny Tiny Optics ($12), Leather Bows by Pitchoun Designs ($22)

Dress your mini in this dreamy vintage piece that embodies the Mexican culture. If this is your daughter’s first Cinco de Mayo party, this is a great option for her to appreciate her Mexican heritage. Sadly, we only have one of these one-of-a-kind pieces so act quickly to make it yours!

Celebrating with friends

If you and your family are invited to a close friend’s Cinco de Mayo you can also dress in bright and bold colors that signify happiness and festivity. Here are some of our outfit ideas for anyone that wants to dress their mini to the occasion.

IMG_8470.JPGHeart Romper in Confetti Swiss Dots by Paush ($89), Sailor Knot Dot in Mustard by Baby Bling ($13), Leather Bows by Pitchoun Designs ($22), Teeny Tiny Optics ($12)

Our Paush Heart Romper is perfect for any special occasion, and this bright confetti print is perfect for any Cinco de Mayo party. We paired the romper with matching accessories so your mini can look her absolute cutest.

Taffy Vivi Dress by Ultra Violet Kids ($78), Round Metal Frames ($10), Barcelona Sandals by Hubble + Duke ($40)

If the party is being held outdoors this year, it’s best to keep your mini away from the sun’s harsh rays. We paired this colorful dress with a straw hat and sunnies for additional style and shade. We definitely expect your mini to run around the area so we also added a pair of comfortable sandals that have adhesive straps for versatility.

IMG_8466.JPG

Vintage Red Button Up Shirt ($16), Dots n’ Diamonds Bloomer by Rylee & Cru ($42), Barcelona Sandals by Hubble + Duke ($40)

We ‘re so in love with this vintage top with silver tipped collars and floral and geometric print. Bold prints and bright colors are the perfect accents to add to your mini’s Cinco de Mayo outfit. Plus, it’s so comfortable that you don’t have to worry about your mini tripping and falling when they play in this get up.

Festivities are always a favorite time for family and friends. What better way to celebrate this May 5th with your mini than in style? We hope you are able to find some inspiration in our outfit ideas to dress your children to any Cinco de Mayo events you may be attending this year!

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.
