I was getting very strange and wonderful mail today congratulating me on the article in Urban Baby, but I had no idea what people were talking about, until I found it!!!! What a great sweet and wonderful write up!!! Thank you so much Urban baby!!! your the greatest!
Here is the article:
Crown Jewels Where in your genetic material did your daughter find such a penchant for pink plastic princess tiaras? (Perhaps your practical parents wonder the same thing about your little Louboutin habit.)
Either way, girls will be girls, and that's why yours should only wear the best crowns. You can find them on Etsy, the online hub for all things home-crafted.
Vermont-based designer Tamar Schechner makes playtime/birthday crowns that will have even you wanting to play queen for a day: all floaty tulle, beads, blossoms, and butterflies. She also designs Fairytale Dreamcatcher decorations bedecked with birds and ribbon, beautiful fabric flower pins, and patchwork sun hats for babies.
Of course, once you upgrade the tiara, that Toys "R" Us tutu is going to look sad. That's when you twirl on over to Kaiya Eve's website, where you'll find the prettiest nylon/chiffon pettiskirts, created by Los Angeles designer Kandi Lightner. The rainbow of colors ranges from baby pink to more mature leopard-print. No wonder even Hollywood kid royalty, like Dakota Fanning, have been seen wearing them.
So treat your girl to some of these timeless treasures, and teach her an important life lesson: All that glitters is great, but it's the more exclusive stuff that rules.
Available online at etsy.com and kaiyaeve.com.
I am as happy as can be!
