Giftguide: for mom November 25 2015, 0 Comments

                

 

It is hard to believe we are here again with the holiday season. I love gift guides , however some of them have gotten out of hand. Let's do one for the world traveler, the stay at home mom. Really... my girlfriend who stays at home doesn't want a nice bag? I think maybe YES she does.

So as an season editor (yup, I can say that) I do gift guides the way I like them and how I think my friends would like to see them. Which leads me to this one. A thread I hope is always woven into this site is that we are from Brooklyn and want to share a slice of our lives/style with not only Brooklyn mothers but all parents. Which means for our first gift guide (of the season) let's start with picks that represent. 

These 10 picks are either made in Brooklyn, sold from Brooklyn or designed and maybe all the above. I adore this place and hope you love the picks that you can give your partner, friend or yourself. 

Happy Shopping.

Liza Dare, our own Brooklyn insider shares her favorite kids picks for fall! September 30 2013, 0 Comments

 

Welcome our new kids contributor Liza Dare. Liza will be a monthly contributor where she'll share with us her favorities items from Cute Attack as well as her favotite stores and spots in Greenpoint and Williamsburg.

Liza's picks! 

1. Brooklyn Mustache Tee
This is a Cute Attack Best Seller. Kids look adorable with a mustache'd face on their bellies!

2. Peter Pan Collar - The House of Brooklyn Rascals
Polka dots. Reversible. Adorable. I wish these handmade collars came in my size. They are complete any outfit. Try them with stripes! 

3. Floral Cat Ears

I might be the designer..but these look amazing on both kids and adults. They're also perfect for Halloween! 

4. Munster Kids JD Jacket
This jacket is such a cute attack. You can remove the sleeves to make it a vest. This would look amazing on a boy (matched with pretty much anything) but also I see it on a girl with a dress, cozy circle scarf (coming soon!) and high tops.

5. Hammerhead Rattle
I have a new found love for anything nautical, including this handmade organic cotton rattle! You'll also find Caitlin Wicker's narwhal and penguin sweater toys at the shop.

6. Mysterio Predicts Tee

I'm slightly obsessed with these ridiculous tee's. They are like fortune cookies for babies! Each prediction is more random than the next (Mayor of Hoboken???). They are the perfect shower gift for the friend with a sense of humor.
