Välkommen to Sweden!

Friday, August 31, 2012
We've just received the season's third big shipment from Tea Collection - this time, we're in Sweden!

Our Top Five Most Favorite Things about this delivery:

Isn't chilly weather perfect for wrapping your little bundle of joy up in something soft and warm? The cozy Tea rompers you love get even better with generous hoods, elbow patches, gentle floral prints, and plenty of space for chubby baby legs!

From a magical woodland fairy (complete with silver embroidery) to a very wise Mr. Owl, girls have plenty of options for days when dresses stay hanging in the closet. Layer them over your stock of Purity Tees for an extra-big cozy factor (and consider picking up those floral print cargoes - how sweet!).

We're pretty obsessed with the extra-soft flannel Tea has introduced into the collection. In a perfect-for-school shift dress for girls and a just-slightly-hipster button-down for boys, the plaid is brushed on both sides for extra coziness. Bring on the chilly weather!

It needs its own mention. We're in love.

The Tea pants you love - adjustable waist, a touch of stretch - get a little hipper with these vintage-wash cords. With a slim fit and two colors to choose from, these pants are rugged enough for the playground and nice enough for dinner with Grandma. (Plus, they look pretty cool with all his graphic tees.)

This delivery has us excited for the arrival of chillier days (even if, here in San Francisco, they're still a ways off!); here's to flushed cheeks at recess and curling up in something cozy to (dare we say it?) start those holiday wishlists...

Back-to-School Favorites

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Welcome back. Back to fresh notebooks and sharp pencils. Back to new clothes and shiny shoes. Back to growing minds in the classroom and making friends at recess. Back to School, of course!

Here are our top five Back-to-School must-haves at Fiddlesticks!

Dante Beatrix Backpacks and Lunch Boxes

Quirky, durable, and 100% kid-pleasing, Dante Beatrix delivers a fresh new batch of bags for a fresh new school year.

Animal Sound Alarm Clocks

Rise and shine! We've got a menagerie of animal alarm clocks to choose from: how about a ribbiting frog, a chirping red bird, or a giggling raccoon to help tug sleepy heads out of dreamland? (Our favorite is the clip-clopping purple unicorn, of course.)

Eco-Friendly Lunch Gear

Here's one you might want to snag for yourself: totally reusable lunch tins and snack bags. Fill with something delicious, send them off with hungry munchkins, toss them in the dishwasher, and repeat! Perfect for school lunches, picnics, backseat snacks, airplane trips...

All the Fun Things

For us here at Fiddlesticks, it was always stocking up on fresh new school supplies that marked the transition to a new year at school, so we made sure to gather up some goodies for this year's back-to-schoolers. Goldfish pencil sharpeners, ice cream cone pens, metallic colored pencils, rocketship pencil toppers, robot erasers (with removable limbs!) we almost want to go back to school, too!

And finally ... The I-Wood

One more that's too good not to mention: we are SUPER excited to be carrying the I-Wood! It's a laptop, done Fiddlesticks style: smooth wood exterior, and inside, instead of a screen and keyboard, two blackboards (and plenty of chalk). Perfect for getting some serious work done - like practicing 2+2=4, or drawing superheros, of course.

We wish you and your favorite little academics a wonderful start to the school year! See you soon!

Fall Clothing Trends

Saturday, August 4, 2012

We’re ready to dive into fresh new fall looks! Are you with us?

We’ve spent the past months scouring trade shows across the country, circling our favorite pieces in glossy lookbooks, and digging through the  internet for some brand new clothing lines.

The pieces are picked, the boxes are rolling in, and here are the TOP TRENDS in fall clothing at Fiddlesticks!

Electric Hues

Ever feel like boys’ clothing gets lost in the crowd? This season, join the Brights for Boys Revolution! A pop here and a splash there is all you need: For a true Fiddlesticks look, pair electric blue Bakker Made with Love corduroy skinny pants with a bright orange puffy vest by Morgan and Milo – worn open over the Slow Loris graphic tee from Nano Baby, of course. Find neon detailing on sneakers for little feet, and cozy hoodies in bright hues: it's going to be a good season!

Accessories, Accessories, Accessories
Dressing a boy is in the details: elbow patches, a well-placed pocket, clever prints that stand out in a sea of stripes. Add in Appaman’s tailored grey plaid vest, top it off with a charcoal grey newsboy hat, and your handsome little man is good to go! 

(Extra, extra! We’ve picked up two new lines with beautiful, tailored, INCREDIBLE pieces for boys: Expect to hear more about Fore! Axel and Hudson and Mademoiselle à Soho soon!

True Blue
Dressing girls this fall is all about mixing and matching gorgeous shades of blue. From navy raindrop print rain gear by Hatley to a beautiful blue and grey liberty floral print by Elephantito, from a deep indigo Wati dress with gorgeous embroidery detail to soft-as-silk cobalt wraps from Splendid, blue is the name of the game.

Unique Prints

This season we fell in love with architectural prints for girls. Pink Chicken has circled their dresses in vintage-inspired house print, and we are beyond thrilled to be carrying UK-based Poppy for the first time: wait until you see the Jenny skirt, gathered in a bouffant shape and covered with a fanciful London city scene. Whimsical prints add that little something extra to your girl’s closet!


Cozy Knits:
Fall and winter are all about bundling Baby up in the softest, sweetest knits to be found, don’t you agree? This season we love the hand-knit look with a modern twist: a chunky cowl-neck sweater paired with striped knits leggings from Angel Dear? An extra-soft knit Domo Monster romper from Oeuf (with matching sweater)? Oh yes!

 We can't wait to unpack all the boxes headed our way! 

Be sure to check out (fledgling!) Pinterest to see more of what's inspiring us this fall!
