Baby Lulu Fall Peony on Pumpkin Patch Today

Today I took kids for a little photo shoot to the local pumpkin patch. I discovered that a dress I bough last year for Eva now fits to Emily. This is Baby Lulu Fall Peony dress from I think 2005 collection.

How Chanel of them!

I am usually not a big fan of Baby Gassy Gooma brand, but this year fall collection changed my mind.
These classy timeless pieces are just adorable! I totally see Eva wearing houdstooth jacket and ruffled tuxeedo blouse having lunch with me on UES :)

Baby Lulu Bargain Alert

Today on my way from SMX Conference I stopped at Daffy's store at Broadway & 34th Street. They have awesome selection kids' designer brands at prices as low as 75% off. To my (not) surprise I spotted several Baby Lulu outfits priced like $14.99 - I think it was cgenille dress and leggings set that was selling for like $68 at online boutiques that sell Baby Lulu. Anyway, for those in NYC and the area please make sure to stop and shop there. Nobody should pay retail price for Baby Lulu. :)

Baby Lulu at Children's Club in NYC..

As I promised to you I made sure to stop at Baby Lulu booth at Children's Club today. It was a great day to be at the show - it was a first day and the major crowd hasn't arrived yet. I really enjoyed a quiet stroll on the floor looking at beautiful clothes and accessories. I had my little camera with me and took some photos of what caught my attention.
Baby Lulu booth was conveniently located close to the entrance and ironically it was a first booth I actually stopped by. Booth looked colorful and cute, I spotted new fabrics and wanted a sneak peak of Summer 2008 Collection. The girl at the booth was most unfriendly person I ever met at trade shows (And Gosh, I do attend them alot!) . She said I can not take photos and refused to tell me anything about Baby Lulu's upcoming collections and didn't give me a catalog!!!! Oh well, I guess you would have to wait 'till it will be available in stores.
Anyway, here are two shots I did for you:

Forget about Baby Lulu, the show was great! I stopped at several booths and people were friendly, they gave me all the information I needed. My favorite was the booth of Agatha Ruiz De La Prada. OMG, this designer is amazing. It's a combination of colorful chic and simple cut. I just love. love . love her latest collection. Actually the booth gil told me that she is going to be at the booth on Tuesday! I will be at SMX Social Media Conference that day and unfortunately will miss my chance to talk to designer. On my way home I was flipping through Vogue Bambino latest issue and there were a profile on Agatha Ruiz De La Prada. She's a well known designer in Spain and I am sure she'll do amazing on US market.

Is this just me?

Today I received a dress I ordered for Eva. This is Baby Lulu Florentine Paisley Carolina Dress. I got it in size 5 for Eva and she was very excited to try it on. I heard her crying and it turned out that her head couldn't fit into the hole!!!!! No, Eva doesn't have enormous head - she's very much normal kid and never ever had any problems fitting into any clothes... I hope this was purely my "luck" and anyone else experienced this problem with this model. Or did you?
Here is the dress... It's a shame I would have to return it..

Baby Lulu Fall Peony

Fall Peony was a line from Baby Lulu Fall 2006 Collection. I loved this orange-red-brown pattern. It's a shame I missed the colorful foliage and shoot Eva wearing it in late fall.
Later I shoot her in spring wearing the same outfit, slightly different shirt. I think it was for spring colors too!

Baby Lulu Hannah Floral - Fall 2006 Collection

Baby Lulu Hannah Floral is so far my favorite collection ever created for fall. It's just looked so perfect for pumpkin patch photos. I am trying to decide which one I should do this year and can't decide between Chrysanthemum and Hyacinth Garden.

Excellent site to shop for Baby Lulu

I came accross and was impressed of their representation of Baby Lulu clothes. Check it out!

Children's Club in NYC

For all kids fashion enthusiasts I want to announce Children's Club coming to NYC in October. I visited it last year and actually stopped at baby Lulu booth. This time I will take some photos and will update you on what's new (if they'll be talking to me at all unlike last time) LOL

Baby Lulu Jasmine

Baby Lulu Jasmine was part of 2005 Fall Collection. It was actually our first autumn in Connecticut. I was so excited about the whole seasons thing that I bough matching outfits for girls and shoot them once trees turned yellow. Emily is wearing Baby Lulu Jasmine Romper with matching custom made headband. Eva is wearing Baby Lulu Jasmine Kitty tee and Luna pants. I think this outfit will fit Emily this fall!

Baby Lulu Sunflower Summer 2007

Even though it's September already I haven't posted some summer 2007 Baby Lulu photos yet. Here is Eva wearing Baby Lulu Sunflower Kerchief Dress. It's very simple and cute sun dress, 100% cotton and perfect for everyday summer. I hope Emily will be enjoying it as well 2 years down the road. You actually can get this dress on sale at It's $26 but only bigger sizes left.

Baby Lulu Autumn Leaves - A Fall is Coming!

While Eva and Emily were splashing in the lake this morning I though that this summer is almost over. Probably it was our last time this season we visited TopStone Park -our favorite summer weekends destination. I should take Eva shopping for fall clothes soon. Here is my favorite fall picture ever: Emily wearing Baby Lulu Autumn Leaves overall. She's only 8 months old at this picture.

Baby Lulu Cruise 2008 - Candy Land

Baby Lulu Candy land features lots of ruffles and 3-D flowers. It's a small "dress-up" collection mostly in solid colors. The attention is shifted to the craftsmanship and details. I really like the Lola princess dress. Very cute collection and it's very different from usual Baby Lulu cut.

Baby Lulu Cruise 2008 - Madeline Collection

Baby Lulu Madeline is my favorite from Cruise 2008 Collections. I showed pictures to Eva who is 4,5 asking what would she like and the only outfit she picked was ruffle tee and canvas pant.

My top picks were cute couple dresses: Lauren and Tutu dress. Also retro bathing suit is always an eye candy. For little ones I loved puff dress with cute butterflies and flowers.

Baby Lulu Cruise 2008 - It's here!

Baby Lulu Paper Floral
Baby Lulu Lucinda
Baby Lulu Madeline
Baby Lulu Candy Land
It's August and Baby Lulu presented Cruise 2008 Collection. And the names are: Candy Land, Madeline,Lucinda and Paper Floral.
As usual Baby Lulu is very slow when it comes to updating their site, and since they don't mail catalogs out, fans have to digg to find latest photos.

I have to admit that my girls are 4 and 2 now and they've almost outgrew their Lulu stage. My oldest one refuses to wear these pretty dresses and lives in polos and khakis (welcome to Darien, CT) and the little one gets nothing new - the closets are overflowing with clothes I bought for Eva and somebody actually needs to wear all of it! So probably I won't get anything for them from Baby Lulu anymore. Juicy Couture, here we come! :)

Baby Lulu Chrysanthemum - Fall 2007

Chrysanthemum probably is my line from Baby Lulu Fall 2007 collection. It combines 3 prints: solid red, chrysanthemum flowers print and cute red-orange dots. My top pick from this collection would be Sparrow tee and drawstring pants (I will get it for Eva) and Twirl Dress. For babies I adore their Gi Gi romper (these design sells quick, I remember hunting down for them while kids were toddlers).

Baby Lulu LOVE

I came across this Baby Lulu short set named Baby Lulu LOVE. I don't think I've seen this before. Anyone has any idea what year and what collection it is from? Did Baby Lulu ever shoot a Valentines collection? I would think this is PJ but it's not. Cute model btw!

Baby Lulu Florentine Paisley

Baby Lulu is getting fancier with names - cheez, it's hard to pronounce and spell this one! Big floral prints in blue, pink and orange blended with a little green and yellow. The second print is little chick in the same gamma and I think it's really cute for baby items. Since my girls are definitely outgrew multi-color chick print stage I will focus on floral dresses.
My top pick is Carolina Dress with cute ruffle trim and adorable sleeves ties.

For toddler girls I wouldn't be able to resist buying Empire Knit Dress and accessorize it with matching hat and leggings.

Baby Lulu Princess Butterfly A-line Dress

Eva couldn't wait to wear this Baby Lulu Princess Butterfly dress I recently bought for a photo shoot. I was looking for a good spot to photograph it for quite some time. Initially I wanted to shoot it on the beach but butterflies on this dress were asking for flowers. Thankfully our neighbors had quite nice garden on their front yard. Here is the result:

Baby Lulu Pink Mums

I don't remember what year was this collection. I think it was Spring/Summer 2004. Baby Lulu Pink Mums short set with matching hat. I like cute little felt flowers -Baby lulu signature decor- on the neckline of the t-shirt.

Baby Lulu China Rose

This is one of my favorite Lulu lines - Baby Lulu China Rose. I had two matching sister's dresses when Eva was 2,5 and Emily 6 months. I regret I never had a chance to proper photograph them both wearing it. Anyway, here is Eva in my studio. She is not even 2 y.o. here but she posed so patiently and professionally I couldn't believe my eyes.

Baby Lulu Tropic

Tropic was Baby Lulu Cruise 2005 Collection. I loved this collection. I still have tons of stuff waiting for Emily since Eva outgrew them in a blink of an eye. This is a baby doll dress and matching ruffle pants. Originally these pants were part of another outfit. I will have to look if I have a photo of it.

Baby Lulu Hyacinth Garden - the first fall preview

Baby Lulu just shoot out this new fall collection. It's called Hyacinth Garden. Actually "Hyacinth" pronounced "Giacint" in Russian - I know this flower. I would never guessed it's name looking just at Lulu pattern though! My top pick from this collection would be Kari dress. I love how they combined three different fabrics and it doesn't look busy at all. Maybe I will get this dress for Eva later on.

Baby Lulu Lines Names Archive

There was a wonderful website that had an extensive database of all Baby Lulu lines created to date. I was often referring to it for a name of a line if I couldn't remember it. About one month ago the site was taken down. Actually this website was sort of authority for many ebay users who were selling retired and collectible Lulu pieces. I was thinking I can try to put together something like this for people. I tag every photo with a Baby Lulu Collection name. I know I don't have many especially older ones (before 2004 era) but with your help I sure could give it a try. Please feel free to email me photoattitude at yahoo the name of the collection I am missing with a photo of the item or your kid wearing this if you wish. I will try to put together the full archive of all Baby Lulu lines ever created.

Baby Lulu Raspberry Mums Tara Dress

Here is Eva wearing Tara dress from Baby Lulu Raspberry Mums Collection. I love this easy halter dress style - very summery and open. Eva wore it to the park and was playing on the grass. I said this dress goodbye in my thoughts but surprisingly it handled washing/drying very well. All stains came off and felt flower is still in the shape and looks good.
Her is my model:

Looks like only one player left for Baby Lulu online sales

Well, I just get a comment from Forgetmenotkids owner on my earlier post that they're still in the game and not going to discontinue Baby Lulu line. Actually it was one of my readers who mentioned it. Anyway, the good news is that we still have at least one Baby Lulu online retailer. The bad news is that there is no competition and it's always a bad thing. I don't know why Trenditikes are giving up - I loved their website, their service, their faster and nicer markdowns and always favored them over Forgetmenot.

New Baby Lulu outfits for Eva

Ok, today I got a package from Trenditikes with three cute dresses for Eva:
Baby Lulu Raspberry Mums Tara Dress
Baby Lulu Sunflower Kerchief Dress
Baby Lulu Princess Butterfly A-line Dress

Frankly, I wasn't impressed with a quality of these dresses. A little loose thread here and there, non-even stitches, even the quality of jersey fabric is no different from Walmart jersey dresses. I was a bit disappointed. Eva loved them all though and she wore Tara dress to my company's BBQ today.
