Miley more thing....

oh, I thought I would share the pic we captured when they both found out we were going....

Miley Concert....

...okay, so hopeTATTOO did not win during the high level negotiations I had with my daughter on what to wear to her first 'big girl' concert. Instead, once again, she really wanted to wear the rodeoDRIVE dress with theMARMONT was a good choice and it did coordinate with her bestest friend who happened to be wearing hollywoodBLVD. Given the concert, these ended up being fantastic choices. Although Miley's choice of clothing and dancing style provided the need for conversation around 'what is appropriate for teenagers to be wearing and doing', we had a fantastic time. It really demystified the entire 'famous - rock star' is all about the journey.....what a great experience for us to share.

Miley Cyrus Concert....

I am thinking this is the winning design for the Miley Cyrus concert tonight. My daughter has no idea she is going and she has no idea that she actually gets to MEET Miley. I will post some updates after her big night tonight.........she is going to flip!!

Consumer Product Safety - We are good!!

As you may or may not know, there has been a lot of buzz around children's products and the lead content associated with them ever since we had the big scare. I too was one of those moms who purchased lead testing kits, tested toys and threw away any toy that remotely looked like on on 'the list'.
Anyway, many of us small business have been operating with a fear that we might have to shut down once the full impact of the 2008 CPSIA went into effect. I am writing to tell you that deliciousDESIGNS is compliant with the amended law and you can rest assure that not only will the clothing you purchase from dD be over the top cute, comfortable, and well made, it will also be safe. If you want to learn more, please visit for a great read :-)

Think Spring!!!

Sounds so crazy I know but we are busy working in the studio on Spring designs! It is really hard to fit in right now and quite honestly it is tough when you wake up and see frost on the ground :-) However, we will be releasing new Spring designs as they are complete.....keep your eyes open.

In the meantime, be sure to make your purchases for any holiday designs you are wanting. We will be closing out several of these fabric combinations as we run out of fabric. We already have several items 'out of stock' and with the current order volume, there will be more to come.

Have a fabulous Thursday!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Rachel Griffiths - November Cookie Magazine!

For all the mommies out there - please read the above article that features Rachel Griffiths. I would argue that most of us need to be a little more like her.....okay, I know I do :-) Okay, so she has a beautiful home, gorgeous (extremely well dress I might add) kiddos and is drop dead beautiful her self but it is not that which we should strive to be more like. Instead, I loved the part where her son cuts a hole in his bedroom curtain so he can watch people coming up the front steps and she says "brilliant" - all curtains should have peepholes. There is nothing better than that attitude as a mother.
We all strive to be the 'best' mommy and sometimes we get stuck doing all the stuff that keep us from being the 'best' mommy. Relax, do less, keep it simple and most importantly.....let's not take ourselves so darn seriously. Much love to all the mommies out there!

Look under 'girlWEAR' for details and ordering information. Both designs can come with either a long sleeve version or a tank version of the tee and a full or capri length on the pant.

This romper set makes a great gift or a great addition to your little one's wardrobe. Many of our customers love the dD rompers because they can put their little one in it before bed and be out the door in the morning with very little effort while looking so fashionable.

Calling all hostFASHIONISTAS!!!

We are booking Fall trunkSHOWS now....I know this is crazy to believe and hard to grasp given that you most likely spent the day at the pool today or are about to this weekend. However, Fall is just around the corner and if you want to have your deliciousDESIGNS before the colder weather is upon us, now is the time to book your show.
If you are interested in booking a trunkSHOW in your home or are interested in attending one that is already scheduled, please email and we will make it happen! We have great hostess perks and most importantly, it is a great reason to have a 'mom's night out'.

Style is a simple way of saying complicated things ~ Jean Cocteau

This quote comes from one of my favorite fashion books ~ The Little Black Book of Style by Nina Garcia ~ The book is filled with all kinds of good quotes and pieces of fashion information. I love it so much that it is part of our hostFASHIONISTA Program for hosting a trunk show ~ it makes a great trunkSHOW hostess gift!
The other book of Nina Garcia's that has made it into the deliciousDESIGNS studio is ~The One Hundred - A guide to the pieces every stylish woman must own ~ If you take one thing from these books, it is to spend more money on fewer GREAT pieces instead of spending money on a closet full of clothes you buy at the same place you buy your groceries....all you mom's out there know what I mean :-)
If you do not own these books, treat yourself to a fun little read........

We just received the new version earlier this week and it was part of the photo shoot yesterday. We will have the new and improved melroseAVE available online very soon! The product picture on does not do it is a random pic until the new ones are released.......

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

We did it!!!

The photo shoot at hether miles photography today was fantastic! We were able to showcase 12 of the girlWEAR designs and hopefully next time we can get some of the boyWEAR in there too. We had five gorgeous models and they all did such a great job. I should have the pictures in about two weeks and I will work day and night to get the website updated.
In the meantime, I thought I would share a photo shoot with Jenn Foley a.k.a 'The Watson's Girl".....she had both her gorgeous girls in deliciousDESIGNS in the June issue of Indianapolis Monthly.
