Not a big stylista?
Styling headgear with cute fall outfits is a breeze, for even the most non-fashionable mom. Our supermini model, pictured below is styled in a solid jeans and magenta-colored sweater, with her hair accessory matching her top. You can do this with any of the fall colors we mentioned earlier. You can also use colors that complement each other. Match the bow to the top, or another color featured in artwork on the top, dress or onesie. Match the bow to the shoes or the bag and for hairstyling help you can check out some styles here. You can also opt to totally ignore all fashion rules. Have your baby rock any color bow of your choice or theirs and create your own style.

Long Branch Fest is on today and we're open!I'm just getting ready for the Long Branch Fest which is a festival that is put on by the Long Branch BIA, of which I have been on the Board of Directors for the past two years. I was the chair of the committee that launched their new logo, website, insta and facebook page and I had to resign my post just two weeks ago as part of the move. :( I was sad to do this because I didn't get to see what we can do with this hood in the next five years but I will be watching from my new home and looking forward to updates! This neighborhood has so much to offer, I was proud to help bring some visibility and sense of community to the area. The festivities today will include bouncy castles, facepainting, food specials and buskers entertainment. Hope you can make it! Baby Wisp was the only baby boutique in the area and I had tonnes of customers (lots of new families here) come regularly to visit and chat. I will miss having this store but I hope to see many of you TODAY!!!! My kids will be outside with their lemonade stand as we are showing the ropes about running a business. They spent their allowance on the supplies. Yup, $30 in lemons and cups!!!! hahaha!!! So, please help them break even at least. :) From 12-6 TODAY our customers can come grab all deals that we are launching for the next 6 weeks at once (as we shut down operations in Toronto). Deal 2 are some crazy $5 deals here, 25% off piggy paint, and a newly updated clearance section.
Why does being sold out make me so happy?
We're sold out of the Coral flower Crown Headbands as of today. It's not the revenue generated from the sales that is making me utterly giddy.I should be a tad worried that I cannot fill demand for the flower crowns in Coral this spring and summer, shouldn't I? We sold out of this hot style and colour before March even hit and I won't be restocking it. You are probably scratching your head with this, as that doesn't make sense...or so it seems. They are so popular, you sold out!! Why wouldn't you re-stock it? Make more and ride the wave, you're chiding me as my friend in business. As my customer, your demand should be driving me to get more in stock...and NOW, right? But, I've made this mistake before. Too many times, in fact. The times have changed so much since Baby Wisp® first started (2008) , you wouldn't believe how much faster the 'trend' cycles are. You think a bow is a bow is a bow...pink is pink and pink. I tell you - it's not true. [caption id="attachment_1258" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Coral Baby Wisp Flower Crown[/caption] Any retailer can tell you about this problem of inventory and trend cycle. Just go to any "end of season" sale and you will see prices that you cannot believe. You know for sure. that skirt you just bought for 99 cents, definitely cost several times that to make. But here's the thing - If you don't sell it off at the end of the season, you will never see a dime for it. Knowing you have such a short window to get your style noticed you have to be already on to the next before you're finished with the first! Styles are so fluid, so hard to nail down. As a designer, you're gambling on the right colour, the size, shape, style, fabric and more often that not - you're either doomed or crowned queen when a 'CELEBRITY' tells the general public what's cool and what's not cool or the celebrity BABY is photographed wearing a certain style. You can't plan for that the year before when your designs are in production. It's such crazy concoction of the right ingredients whether your design will be loved. And when it's loved, it's loved for like a second. It used to be a minute or two but now it's a second! So today, I'm celebrating the second of fame we got in our Baby Wisp Kingdom. Our coral flower crown is loved. We got it right! Nailed it! woohooo!!! That's a "good day" at work when you feel your decisions were right. On that note - there are only a handful of aqua left as that will be next to sell out...so hurry before they are gone for good! Click here to shop at our store>>>
Trendy Twist Pastel Collection
Hair ribbons are something that almost every child experiments with at some point in their youth. Most of them find that they like the different colors and styles the bows offer and enjoy them throughout childhood. The Trendy Twist Pastel Collection offers kids a chance to play with styles and combine many different colors as well. Each style bow is made up of two bows – a tiny one with a grosgrain ribbon and a larger one with a twist in the middle. These are simple to use and a great way to get your child into hair styling.
Every little girl wants to be a princess, and what better crown to show off this desire than one made of beautiful flowers?

This is a great chance for a mommy to play dress-up with her child and show off how much fun hair accessories can be. It’s easy to use and provides both flexibility and fun.

You could even add sequins for extra dazzle if you want.
