Say hello..

Ashley Kennedy

to Ashley Kennedy. We are absolutely thrilled to have her as our Guest Hunter for the week and we can guarantee you will enjoy her fabulous picks (as we certainly did). You’ll want to keep reading to learn more about the life of this cool girl and spy some of her favorite things. But really no one can say it better than Ashley herself…

I’m a San Francisco native who has been circumstantially transplanted into Los Angeles for the last 14 years, but I dream of living in SF again someday. I was born into the fashion world with a clothing designer mom and a maternity clothing manufacturer dad, and all they ever told me was “Don’t go into this business!”  But it was in my blood, and I ended up where I was meant to be…in the kids fashion industry!  I was a trend forecaster for years and then when I got pregnant with my first son, I launched a boys clothing website called LittleDudesonly.com, which I have since sold (it is still operating today under new owners). I was frustrated with the lack of creativity and innovation in boy’s apparel, and now that I’m a mother of two boys (and a third son due in November), it continues to annoy me that there are only a handful of boys clothing lines that are doing something different! I admit it’s getting better, but it’s still not where it should be.

I decided to sell my website, and I was hired as a buyer for TheMiniSocial.com, which is THE COOLEST of all the kids flash sale websites out there. They were the first on the kids flash sale scene and they continue to offer the best in kids boutique brands (totally impartial here).

I’ve been a kids buyer for over two years and I absolutely love what I do. I live in Silver Lake with my husband and two sons. We love to go to concerts, movies and our favorite restaurants (Din Tai Fung, Casa Bianca and Speranza to name a few).  I’m one of those people who constantly barrages everyone I know with all the coolest new places and things I’ve found, so I’m excited to have an excuse to impart my opinions this time!

of jeans, tees and adding interesting details to an outfit through accessories.  These bangles are wrapped in vintage silk fabric, offered in two shapes – a round, tubular shape or a thick, flatter version, and are a pretty cool way to add some individuality to some easy everyday items like a denim jumper or a t-shirt dress.  Wear stacked or layer with other bracelets and a watch, either way you can’t go wrong.  They’re available at Ooga Booga, a store out of LA. With all of the amazing options, the only question is deciding which one?

Go Gently Baby Sack Dress, $58

“sweet, simple style with a little edge” and Go Gently Baby is exactly that. Since coming across the kids’ line, I’ve been mildly obsessed. Garments are produced in Los Angeles from 100% organic fabrics. Great looks for boys and girls that are sweet, wearable and just plain cool everyday pieces. Go Gently Baby
can be found at a number of shops including Arte Bebe, a store that carries a great assortment of kids’ products from New York to Argentina and everywhere in between. Thrilled to have come across the shop in pursuit of the brand.

Little Warrior

this comes in my size! I spotted this romper on the fabulous blog Smaller, and there are no words. Now, I don’t know that I would actually buy this for my daughter being that she would mess this beauty up quicker than pig pen, but I sure do like it. Little Warrior is based out of LA and makes unisex kid clothing like nothing I’ve seen. Check out more fantastic pieces from their line here.
