wishing you

 a beautiful weekend


in the Boston Herald today...

if you've been in the shop lately you may have noticed an easy-breezy, not-crazy-expensive (most under $150), super cute new collection on our racks.  in fact you may have purchased a piece already (all sizes flying out)- as these warm days have inspired just this kind of saturday afternoon dressing.  the name is silly... Pink Chicken... but that's because it started as a little gal's collection.  i wrote up a little "Like Daughter Like Mother" piece for the Herald and shared some of my favorite (big & little girl) pieces...

Pink Chicken might best be known for its collection of little girl's dresses and tunics, but the colorful line of easy clothing is now also available for the big girls. Started in 2006, by Stacey Fraser, and using her own daughters as inspiration, Pink Chicken quickly became a covetable, adorable staple for stylish little ones. Today the brand has grown and is answering to all the Mom's who have pleaded, "Can you please make this for ME?"  I just brought the adult line to my shop and women are loving Pink Chicken's moderately priced, well-made pieces done in comfortable cottons and joyful patterns. Here are my spring 2013 favorites for both the big & little chicks:
