Thanksgiving outfits from French brand Jacadi? Mais oui!
The couture-like children’s label favored by celebrity moms including Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Rutherford, has pulled back the curtain on their dressy looks for fall. And oh la la – it’s love at first sight.

Taking inspiration from 1920s Paris, Jacadi designers combed historical fashion archives to achieve the perfect balance of vintage references and of-the-moment freshness. The result is an expertly crafted collection made from the finest fabrics and timeless patterns. From newborns to children up to 12 years old, a charming and romantic Thanksgiving ensemble awaits.

For girls this means dresses in polka dot taffeta, faux fur stoles and the perfect poplin blouse. Bows, rosettes and ribbon details conjure effortless elegance and classic French girl chic. The head-to-toe collection includes accessories, outerwear and a full line of European-made shoes. A polished pair of ballet flats or Mary Janes provides the finishing touch.

Boys are treated to perfectly tailored flannel trousers, oxford shirts and cashmere cardigans. A striped sateen tie and supple leather loafers? Check and check.
Updated knickers capture turn of the century trends, but this time in luxe materials like wool tweed or woven herringbone. Paired with handsome knit knee socks they’re a nostalgic alternative to traditional dress pants. 

No matter how hectic modern life gets, the holidays remain a celebration of tradition and heritage. Investing in heirloom-quality pieces from Jacadi is just one more way to make and savor beautiful memories.

Quality, durable running shoes are a must-have for kids and Saucony delivers on both accounts! Saucony makes a range of sneakers for girls and boys that are perfect for all kinds of sports, the playground or day trips with friends.

My 3-year-old daughter put the Saucony Girls Baby Ride A/C running shoes to the test over the past couple of months and has officially declared the "purple comfy ones" as her favourite pair. Running, skipping, bouncing, dancing and jumping in puddles (woops!) are just a few of the many "tests"  my daughter put these shoes through.

The Saucony Baby Ride's have durable rubber outsoles which offer kids superior traction.  Leather and mesh uppers  allow for breathability and air flow, while the large flex grooves provide the ultimate flexibility. My little girl had no problems slipping these shoes on herself as the alternative hook-and-loop velcro closure allows for easy on/off and adjustability. For a toddler who wants to do everything herself, this is a a great feature!

We've tried various brands of sneakers but the Saucony Baby Rides are the best out of the bunch. For boys, the Cohesion GT Hook & Loop is a great choice!

Saucony Baby Ride running shoes are available in two colours: Hot Pink and Surf. Sizes for babies and toddlers range from 4-10.

Discount: Free shipping on orders of two pairs or more (US only). Offer ends at 11:59 p.m January 31, 2010.

Angel Dear Blankies are sweet charming characters that are cashmere-soft and oh so lightweight! The 14" square is available in a huge assortment of fun characters in soft colors.

If you prefer a larger size of these blankies check out the Animal Napping Blankets. They are great as stroller blankets and for naps in the car. Both the blankies and blankets are made of the softest cashmere-like polyester which does not pile and washes up beautifully. I have thrown both blankets in the washing machine and dryer a few times already and both of them feel just as soft as when I received them.

Angel Dear is an expert when it comes to soft, cuddly comfort! Their Chenille hoodies are deliciously soft and warm enough to wear as a jacket during the spring or fall seasons. They come in a wide assortment of colors and sizes from 6 months-4T.
