I was just in the Uniqlo flagship store, and was very impressed with their kids’ selection. First of all, in case you don’t know about Uniqlo, it is a Japanese store that came to NYC several years ago, and is well done, and well priced (at any given point either Pilar or I are wearing […]


We found ourselves in JCPenney over the break, and we surprised to see how many cute (and cheap) things they had in their girls department. Jeans in colors reminiscent of Rag&Bone (regular price $18, many on sale for $12), t-shirts with a little Isabel Marant vibe (on sale for $5), and snow outfits that were […]


These are a perfect hybrid of sweats and cargo pants. They’re unisex, and we got them at Uniqlo, in the black/grey combo, and the army green/grey combo. They’re great for really cold days since they have some thickness to them, and they are super comfy. Because of the hurricane, Uniqlo has temporarily suspended its US […]

dress opener

Almost everyday, someone in our office is wearing some perfect shirt, or dress, or jacket, that comes from Uniqlo, the Japanese based clothing store. Their things are basic, timeless, classic, and not expensive. And starting yesterday, they’re online! I haven’t thoroughly scoured their site to see if they have everything from the store, but they certainly […]


Our friend Tamara turned us on to these overalls, whose daughter Tallulah has been wearing them all year. They are great now that it’s fall–see below how her daughter wears them with a fisherman’s sweater underneath, instead of a t-shirt. Here are her favorite sources for them, Brooklyn General and Construction Gear.


There are a ton of great things on sale at Crew Cuts right now. Check out this cute chambray tunic ($39 from $59), which seems like a three-season staple. It’s one of those, wish they made it in my size kind of items. Snow pants, hard to get excited about in this sweltering heat, but a good […]

lands end chukka

Last week we ordered some basics from Land’s End, and at the last minute, I sprung for the suede desert boots that were marked down from $49.50 to $19.99. I figured that at that price, we could deal with the annoyance of returning them if they didn’t work out. Well, they arrived this week, and […]


My boys live in these classic barn jackets during the fall. They are just the right weight for layering and stuff easily into backpacks during those nippy-in-the-morning, warm-in-the-afternoon days. I just saw this on Crewcuts for $59 from $88. I’m going to get one in the size up for next year. Works well for girls too.


Smallable is one of those blogs that, depending on your personality, you’ll either be completely inspired, or you’ll be very irritated. Looking at beautiful kids fashion is one of those things where unless you are handy with a sewing machine, or haven’t been affected by the economy…well, it can be really annoying. But, because this […]
