But I have to admit it was kind of fun, when it actually happened. The little girls were thrilled have their moment in the limelight, and I guess I was too!
It was even fun for my two boys, who can't model for Pixyworld, but enjoyed attending their first runway show. They got to come backstage, and were proud of their de
But in practice, I just don't think we're ready for mfg.com. When I submitted spec sheets for Pixyworld's dresses & shorts last summer, the response I got was somewhat puzzling.
Of all the hundreds of suppliers (domestic and overseas) they had listed, th
The runway shows will now take place on Saturday, May 30. Pixyworld still has spots available for mini-models, sizes 18M to 7. You can contact me directly if you're interested.
In addition to the fashion shows, there will be an accessories show inside the What is That Gallery in Ypsilanti, MI. If you're nearby, don't miss this fabulous event!

This, more than any other style handbook, has helped me in designing toddler girls' clothing. For a toddler, looking "fat" is not the issue. The shape and proportions of a toddler's body are so unlike an adult woman'
When we first considered a different showroom in 2008, we were scared off big-time. In fact, it was that experience that inspired us to start selling to the retail customer through our own website! It was my husband Jon who spoke with the first showroom, a
Gymboree seems to have two advantages, besides the obvious cost benefit of mass-production. One is one-stop shopping. Moms shopping online will choose a hairpiece from the same site as the clothing they are buying, if possible, to save on shipping.
Their other advantage is outf
Maybe we are sick of pink because, in this economy, Pink Slips are the New Black! Maybe moms shopping little girls' boutiques are looking for something very unique, and they feel that pink for little girls is t
For example, I had learned, through selling custom outfits on eBay, that in toddler girls' clothes, pink just sells. As an Autumn, I can't wear pink at all, so it's not a color I naturally gravitate to. (Though it looks gorgeous on my little Summery 4-year-old!)
At any rate, I had to let myself go on just one collection. For F

In fact, I began designing children's clothes with just these dilemmas in mind. These little girlies are at the prime dress-wearing age, and they look as pretty as posies in their twirly dresses and piggy-tales.
But, they do tend to expose themselves for all the world to see. Parents tend to either ignore this problem -- fair enough, I guess
She gets the most of the details of the clothing, while still getting a cute smile. I'm a sucker for a twirly dress, and she even got a little twirl into the photo!
Hats off to you photographers -- without you, there would be no online shopping!
There is an age, though, where kids stop wearing matched sets. Not that all kids wore them before that age -- but they definitely go from cool to uncool somewhere around age 7. Funny, isn't it?
My two boys, 9 and 7, have made the transition. Now they don't just not match -- they usually clash. Boys' athletic clothes are sold as separates, fo
It stains and stains and stains - and that's a good thing!I am by far not a lipstick girl. Most of my make up is meant for my eyes. So when Cover Girl came out with their new product I got curious. The Outlast Lipstain promises to not be the typical lipstick. It actually stains your lips, much like a felt pen, and that's also how it looks and feels when you apply the (water based) color.Anxious to try it, I applied the lip stain right after I came back from the store one aftern
I was contacted recently by Earnshaw's Magazine for permission to use our Paisley Print Tee in an article on Paisley. So, look for Pixyworld in their next issue!
While that is the breaking news, I am so grateful to all the bloggers who have given me a spot. So, I recently created a Press page on my site to highlight their work.
Thank you, my blogging friends!!
Good photos are key in the presentation of boutique girls' clothing -- online, or anywhere. And photographing toddler girls is no easy task! I quickly abandoned the idea of doing my own photos, after trying a couple of times with my own little girls. It's an art form of its own, that takes patience, skill, technical know-how, and and artistic talent.
What means the most to me, besides accurate representation of the lines and details of the clothing, is capturing something of the model's un
I love to hear from customers that a toddler outfit fits perfectly... and it's a hard-won compliment!
Babies and toddlers do come in ALL shapes and sizes. Did you ever stop to consider that women's clothes are sizedmainly according to body proportions, assuming that basic measurements like height, arm length, and inseam aremore or less the same for all women?
With baby & toddler clothes, all bets are off, and every measurement is up for grabs! A 4T has to tr
I do love to think of my daughter as a butterfly, because that fits her personality so well -- tiny, busy,and colorful!
There's something about this season's shrug that I love. Maybe it's the way it divides the figure into thirds, insteadof chopping it in half like a traditional top & jeans set. Maybe it's the soft flow
