Okay so, was I the only one who noticed that the weather in NYC yesterday was ahhmazing? Sort of weird since the boyz have been wearing down jackets for two weeks, but whose complaining?


Nothing says Fall better than a GAP barn jacket with a cordoroy collar and elbow pads.  Yesterday I added button down shirts from Ralph Lauren, some jeans and presto, the boyz were ready for the day! 

Oh, the boys decided to pull out the shades – what do you think?  

 Did you have nice weather too? What did you put on the kids?

It’s Friday, my day to review cool GREEN kiddie products! YAY!  

Courtney Chu

Meet Courtney Chu, owner and designer of CourtneyCourtney, a children’s brand like no other! Why? Courtney uses old t-shirts and remnants of other fabrics and turns them into cool girlie duds!  Is that eco-friendly or what?

I asked Courtney some questions about her upcycled line!  Check it out and make sure to enter the giveaway for a cool CourtneyCourtney upcycled pouch (details below)!

Tiffany: Why did you start CourtneyCourtney? 

Courtney:  I’ve been making things since I was little, rented a shelf at a local antiques mall in middle school where I sold jewelry. I decided on the name in college, when I was beginning to experiment more with fabrics and t-shirts.

Tiffany:  Was your goal to be green/eco-friendly?

Courtney:  Not at first, mostly it was convenience because t-shirts are everywhere!  But now it’s inherent.  It’s the first step in my process, hit the thrift store and find fabrics that inspire me.

Tiffany:  How did you decide on the concept?

Courtney:  Constant experimentation.  Sew something up, try it on, change it.

Tiffany:  What’s the most challenging aspect of being in children’s fashion?

Courtney:  It is competitive and I want to make sure my work is diverse yet wearable.  We can design a wide range of styles but when it comes down to it, the children have to love it.

Tiffany: I think the best thing about your brand is how unique each piece is, what is your favorite aspect about the brand?

Courtney:  Each dress is a new mood, feeling, and comes from fabrics that had their own stories.  The idea is that you can wake up, and put on something that is totally unique and ready to go on new adventures!

Yup, it’s Friday!  Friday is my day to  highlight cool brands sportin’ eco practices for kiddies!  I am super excited about featuring MINI & MAXIMUS today because:

1) they just came out with their “Imperfectly Perfect” Fall/Holiday 2011 line which is AHHDORABLE!  AND

2) I just featured one of their cool tees in a Fall Fashion Film I produced featuring Tristin, Tyler and their gorgeous friend Brianna.  Stay Tuned for that!


I love any brand that supports kids. Whether the support comes from encouraging kiddie creativity or kiddie spontaneity, I’ll take it!  When you visit their site, make sure to check out their t-shirt designs for kids, by kids!


Well, you know by now that Tristin, Tyler and I try our best to help the environment in all that we do, so we love that by supporting MINI & MAXIMUS we are supporting a company that loves the earth just as much as we do!  They make their clothing out of a “unique blend of super soft bamboo/cotton, 100% organic cotton, or a modal/cotton blend.”  They also “use recycled paper and water-based inks for all of our posters.”

And to top it all off, the line is BEYOND CUTE!!
