Holiday Hues from Jacadi Paris

see more by

Jacadi is a Tiny Oranges Sponsor 

Jacadi Holiday Hues Timeless. Incomparable. Exclusive.

All these words can be used to describe Jacadi Paris, an authentic children’s fashion line rooted in the elegance and refinement of French culture.

Jacadi Paris a brand for fashion connoisseurs who love and appreciate their elite fabrics, patterns and attention to detail.

What struck me about their clothing is the incredible beauty in its simplicity.  You will not find fussy patterns or trendy details, but rather, effortlessly tailored styles that will live on long after the trend of the day has passed.

Jacadi Holiday Collection

Their Holiday Hues Collection had me drooling.  If I could select a dream holiday outfit for my daughter, this would have to be The One.

Jacadi Holiday Hues Girls Outfit

Taffeta Belted Dress
Three Button Cardigan
Metallic Tights
Glitter Mary Janes

Now, I don’t have boys myself, but I do happen to have two darling nephews, and I can just picture how handsome they would look in an outfit like this for the holidays!

Jacadi Holiday Boys Outfit

Marino Wool Sweater Vest
Cotton Dress Shirt
Corduroy Trousers
Leather-Trimmed Chukka Boots

If you are investing in high quality clothing for your kids, it’s nice to know the items are ones they can wear again and again. And then hopefully pass on to younger siblings or friends.

My oldest daughter started Cotillion this year, and Jacadi’s dresses would also make for perfect Cotillion attire with their refined and sophisticated styles.

Jacadi Winter Sale!

I am also happy to share you can save up to 50% off select items featured in their Winter Sale! The holiday collection, new collection and home are not included in this sale, but you scan score some major deals on other staples! Check it out!

Jacadi Winter Sale

You can shop Jacadi Paris online or if you are one of my Orange County readers, shop in store at their South Coast Plaza boutique.

Now I would also like to end this post with a photo of a VERY cute baby.

Can you even get over that face in that little jumpsuit?!

Oh Very Young Children’s Resale Boutique

Oh Very Young

I don’t know about you, but my kids grow overnight. Literally. My “little” ones have always been on the tall side…frequenting one size for only a few precious months (or even weeks when they were babies!) before springing into the next, which is why I was so very excited to learn more about Oh Very Young children’s resale boutique in Long Beach – a family friendly shop run by a mom and her two daughters.

You can sell clothes, buy clothes and shop for fun accessories (hats or bows, anyone?) – all in fantastic shape and adorable. Oh, and browse lots of name brands.

Give these lovely ladies a call, make an appointment, and take your gently loved kiddo clothes in for their buy back program – they make it so easy and will work around your schedule. You can drop off your items and come back later for your total, or stay and chat if you have time, have a cup of coffee and go over each item (this takes about a half hour).

I say have a cup of coffee because when you talk to these ladies, it feels like you’re chatting with a fellow girlfriend.  Building community is one of Oh Very Young’s top priorities – whether it is supporting a local fund raiser or school, or participating in their business neighborhood “Art Walks” on the first Friday of every month (moms – take note…they provide free arts and crafts and snacks to your little ones in their booth).

They want their customers to feel like family.

Oh Very Young Now, onto the topic of shopping…shopping by myself is a luxury at this point in my life. I usually have my two very active munchkins in tow…so I typically avoid shopping for my kids, with my kids. I know you understand.

But not at Oh Very Young! Fellow mamas, this shop is made for you and your kids to enjoy.

While you browse the racks and find great deals, they provide coloring projects, let the kids play with their toys for sale (Their motto? If it’s within a kid’s reach, go for it! It was meant to be played with!), and have even been known to dole out snacks (ummm, this is particularly helpful if I’ve run out of my granola bar/raisin/apple slices shopping combo to bribe my kids to sit still).

Now, throw in a “Mommy Happy Hour” every other month with complimentary hors     Oh Very Young d’oeuvres, refreshments (sometimes even wine!), fabulous raffle prizes, and shopping for adorable kid stuff, and I am one happy mama!

So, take a little shopping trip and see for yourself – I am confident that you will find something here you that you love…whether it is a super cute kid outfit, a “new” toy or book for your little one, or even a homemade goodie bag for car trips.

And, let the kids play while you shop – enjoy!

But speaking of furniture, car seats and strollers, they have RAFFLES of those items and others on the hour EVERY hour.  Seriously mamas, please CLICK HERE and scroll down to see the list of raffle items. I mean a stroller worth $1,100 and a $400 mini crib to only name two?! Unbelievable. Like I said, this event is a MUST!!

Give back and get a gift! Bel Bambini is a supporter of and customers are encouraged to bring in new or very gently used baby items (or a monetary donation) during their event and you’ll receive a free gift from Bel Bambini. Click HERE for a list of accepted donations.

Last month I got to attend a special preview of Bel Bambini’s newly opened second floor fashion boutique at a special blogger event co-hosted by Ciaran of Momfluential Media. There, amongst the yummy treats and fun activities for kids, we got the check out their couture baby and children’s lines and my daughter got to participate in the fashion show. Let me tell you, she was feeling like hot stuff in her delicious coral dress by Little Marc Jacobs. Swoon.

The boutique features pint-sized fashions by Baby Chloe, Baby Dior, Baby Fendi, Baby Hugo Boss, Baby Jean Paul Gaultier, Baby Stella McCartney, Baby Marc Jacobs, Baby Roberto Cavalli and more.

You might need to pack your own bib when you visit so you are prepared for your “mommy drool.”

Now between the lower level stroller park, beautiful gifts and chic nursery decor vignettes, there is now a FULL second level totally devoted to clothing and layette items. There is no other baby boutique quite like it in OC. Have I told you that you MUST go? Hope to see you there!

Disclosure: My daughter and I attended the event and were fed yummy treats and left with a fun swag bag with goodies. In addition, we will be receiving a gift card to Bel Bambini to thank us for our participation. This is not a compensated post and all words and opinions are my own.  Especially the enthusiasm regarding the RAFFLE.]
