    We're OPEN today for the last SATURDAY ever in Toronto, come say hi!

    Baby Wisp is Moving

    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! longbranchbia   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.

    Our Baby Flower Crowns- why being sold out of Coral is so awesome.

    Baby Flower Crown Headbands Baby Flower Crown Headbands

    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 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! flower girl hair accessoriesStyles 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!

    Hair Accessories to Impress Your Child

    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.

    Flower Crown

    Every little girl wants to be a princess, and what better crown to show off this desire than one made of beautiful flowers? The Flower Crown is adjustable, so it can fit heads as small as the average six-month-old but can be expanded to fit a toddler’s head as well. There’s even room to adjust it further so it can fit the head of a young woman or an adult. 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.

    Dahlia Headbands

    If your child loves flowers, Dahlia Headbands provides a way that they can wear flowers in their hair with the ease of a headband. These simple elastic headbands can expand to fit different head sizes, making them something that can grow with your child. The headbands come in a variety of different styles – they can be white or skin colored to make it seem like there’s a simple dahlia in the child’s hair, or they can be patterned to make it more apparent that it’s a headband. You could even add sequins for extra dazzle if you want.

    Polka Dot Bunny Ears Top Knot Headband

    The Polka Dot Bunny Ears Top Knot Headband provides a bit of style and a lot of fun. The headband has multiple different benefits. First of all, polka dots are a great way to spice up almost any outfit, and they match anything when used in a hair accessory. Second of all, the “bunny ears” aren’t so pronounced that they can’t fit an outfit, but they are large enough to make a child smile, especially if they like the idea of having bunny ears.

Each of the accessories above are extremely popular with children from all over the world. These provide you with a good starting point and can be mixed and matched as you feel appropriate.

    3 Cute Christmas Costume Ideas for Little Girls

    #1 – A Christmas Elf

    Elves are some of the cutest creatures ever imagined, and if your daughter is a fan of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, then she also knows that they make all of the toys. She will definitely love dressing up as an elf this Christmas. Try red-and-white striped leggings, black Mary Janes, and a pretty Kelly green dress. You can find pointy ears in most costume shops to finish the look, and don’t forget the super rosy cheeks that give elves their glow.

    As for her hair, you can leave it down underneath the pointy green hat that elves always wear. To brighten up her ‘do ad add a bit more detail, you can top it all off with some adorable Santa's Elves hair clips with their red ribbed clip, green bow, and pearl accent.

    #2 – An Angel

    What little girl wouldn’t love to dress up as an angel? This costume is relatively simple to put together at home. Choose a beautiful white dress, and then fabricate a halo out of decorative pipe cleaners. You can find angel wings in costumes and little girls’ toys sections of department stores all year round, and they come in a variety of colors, too. Pair all of this up with thick white tights for warmth and some cute white shoes, and your angel is complete!

    Her hair should tie in with the rest of her outfit, and angels are known for their long, flowing hair.

    Dressing up like a Christmas tree is a lot of fun for little girls. Not only do they get to wear a tree-shaped outfit, but they also get to decorate themselves with all of their favorite ornaments. Foam cutouts make the perfect starting point, and they are especially nice because they provide a firm foundation for the ornaments. Paired with green from head to toe, with the exception of some red shoes, it’s every little girl’s dream come true.

    Her hair should complement her outfit, and the Tuxedo Fancy Bows in the Party Time pack can certainly help. It comes with three bows in red, green, and white, and they go perfectly with her outfit with a bit of whimsical flair.

    Sparkly Hair Accessory – Best Holiday Gift for a Baby Girl

    baby

    Every baby girl needs precious clothing and hair accessories to look her best for outings, holidays, and any time of the year. When it comes to buying holiday gifts for baby girls, consider giving her some sparkly baby headbands and baby bows to accentuate her style.

    Multi-Pack Bow Clips

    One of the best ways to buy sparkly hair accessories for baby girls is to purchase multi-pack clips in matching or complementary colors. These make the perfect versatile addition to any wardrobe, and they can be worn with gorgeous formal dresses or even a pair of tiny baby jeans. The best part is that these clips actually grow with the little one, so she can get years and years of use out of them. Sequined bows, glittered clips, and even some with metallic accents can add a bit of flair.

    Sparkly Baby Headbands

    Baby headbands are important in the first few months of a newborn’s life. Even before baby has enough hair for a clip, a baby headband makes it possible to add some feminine style that matches her tiny outfit. You can find sparkly headbands covered in glitter or sequins, and they come in a variety of sizes and styles that match perfectly with any top or dress. What’s more, some of these headbands are quite elastic, so they will also grow with her as she gets older and starts choosing her own unique style.

    Wrapping and Packaging

    Sparkly hair clips make fantastic stocking stuffers, but you can also use them to accentuate other packages. For instance, if you buy a beautiful dress for your daughter and wrap it perfectly, you can use the tiny bow clips as part of the wrapping. You might also choose to simply include matching bows with each outfit, giving each one its own unique package of accessories. Finally, another idea involves including baby hair clips alongside beautiful booties, baby jewelry, or even keepsakes.

    The Best Part about Baby Clips

    One of the reasons why people tend to shy away from giving clips as a gift has to do with the fact that most babies do not have much hair. It might seem pointless to give clips to a baby if using them seems futile. Some of the clips available today are designed with that principle in mind. They have special clasps that can grab on to only a few wispy hairs, without any pain, pulling, or tugging, to add some sparkle and flair. You can pair many of them with baby headbands, and you can find so many styles, there is one for every day of the year.

    Hair accessories make outstanding holiday gifts for baby girls, and they come in so many styles and varieties, it is hard to choose just one. The good news is that with variety packs and a multitude of designs, you don’t have to! Pick a few of your favorites, include them with a pretty outfit or even as a stocking stuffer, and give a gift that any baby girl is sure to love for many years to come.
