When Leah from N’Tended for Kids in Lynchburg, VA sent us photos of her delightful daughters, we jumped at the chance to use them as our Le Top Darlings of the Day. It just doesn’t get better than this. Not one but three beautiful little girls in our adorable summer fashions. Grace (3-years-old) and her twin sisters, Lila and Addison (8-months-old) are making the most of their summer by frequenting the beach in their Le Top “Love Bug” pinafore (top) and “Catch a Wave” (middle) bathing suits, and Le Top “Sun and Sea” cross-back jumpsuits (bottom).

We’re told that Grace loves clothes and shoes! She dresses herself in the morning and then wants her sisters’ outfits to be coordinated with hers. Aawwe!! The twins think that Grace is an amazing and absolutely hilarious big sister. They laugh at any and everything she says. Grace’s personal fave-collecting shells on the beach. Though the twins are not so thrilled with the sand they do love strolling on the beach.

Congratulations Grace, Lila and Addi on your Le Top Darling of the Day title!!!!

Today’s Darling, 10-month-old Elizabeth, is a bathing beauty in her Le Top “Ship Ahoy” collection bathingsuit. Her favorite words are “da da” and “uh oh”. She loves to click her tongue, clap her hands, and shake her head ‘no’. Also she can’t resist “singing” along in church. Ah the joy!

Elizabeth has 7 teeth so far and dogs make her giggle with delight. We’re told she already has her sights set on becoming a sailor like mommy and daddy. Yay! She is often seen practicing her downward dog and plank poses between crawling around the house.

Elizabeth is clearly a perfect choice to be the Le Top Darling of the Day!

Today’s Darling, Hope (2 1/2-years-old), comes to us from New York City. She is a true New Yorker that loves taking art classes at the Met and going to see children’s theater. Mom says that Hope is an outgoing and mature little gal that looks forward to her sports classes each week (soccer and basketball are her favorites). Wow, what a Renaissance girl!

We’re told that she lives in Le Top clothing and gets lots of compliments on them from her fellow classmates. In the photos above she’s wearing Le Top  clothing from our Botanical Garden, Silly Swimmies, and Tulip Garden collections. Simply gorgeous! 

Congratulations to Hope for being today’s Le Top Darling of the Day!

Today’s Darlings are Henning (3-years-old) and Whitman (6-months-old) who come to us from South Carolina where their mom owns and runs Hannah B’s in Murrells Inlet. It’s plain to see how much they enjoy spending time together relaxing at the beach. I hear tell that these siblings have wonderful smiles and great dispositions…always happy!

In the photo on the left both boys are wearing swimwear and matching bucket hats from our Le Top “Big Splash” collection. Henning is in the lined swim trunks and Whitman is wearing the one-piece tank swimsuit. On the right, these loving brothers are showing off their matching “Under the Sea” collection pull-over hoodie shirts and lined swim trunks.

Congratulations to these handsome kids on their title of Le Top Darlings of the Day!

It’s only March here in the Bay Area but the weather has been so warm and sunny (with a few rainy days in between) that we’ve actually been hitting the beach since January! Last week we went to Pacific Grove. My husband was at a 3-day seminar and since he was staying at a swanky hotel, we decided to “join” him and enjoy the amenities that fancy lodging offers, such as a salt water pool and hot tub, breakfast buffets, and free freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Mmmmm!

While Daddy was sitting in an uncomfortable chair in a dimly-lit conference room, we were outdoors absorbing sun rays along the coast at the Asilomar State Beach. It was sunny but a little chilly and I wasn’t sure how long we would last at the beach. But as soon as we laid our blanket on the sand and the kids dumped out all their sand toys, the chill in the air seemed to dissipate. My kids were ready to go jump in the ocean! (But we didn’t. That water is FREEZING!)

After a couple hours, we packed it up and drove back to the hotel where we spent the afternoon swimming in the pool, then in the hot tub, then in the pool, then the hot tub (you get the picture), until Daddy came to retrieve us for dinner. What a fun day! Daddy should go to more conferences at ritzy hotels.

1.   Tell us the inspiration behind the name Doll House? How long has your store been around?
I opened Doll House almost two years ago. While bouncing ideas around, my father suggested the name Doll House, and I thought it was perfect! Children are our little dolls, they are so much fun to dress up.

2.   Spring 2012 styles are coming into stores and brightening up any family’s winter wardrobe. What are your top 3 items (clothes, toys, giftables, etc.) for any parent shopping for warm weather items for a nice holiday vacation this winter?
Nautical stripes will transition a wardrobe from fall to spring, which has made Le Top’s ‘By The Sea’ collection very popular in the store.  Quicksilver rash guards have a built in SPF 50 that can be worn poolside or at the beach. Three Martha’s fold up chalkboard mat (comes with colorful chalk and a fun elephant shaped sponge) is a helpful way to keep kids occupied on long car or plane rides.

3.  Any special events that you have planned at your store for spring? Tell us the inside scoop about any special events and especially the fun deals we can expect!
You Don’t Want To Miss Spring Time At Doll House!

Doll House has teamed up with Billabong and Zico Water for a great trunk show event for tweens! Doll House tweens will be the first to view and order Billabong’s 2012 fall collection while enjoying Zico Water.

4.   What is your “go-to” baby shower gift in your store for boys and girls?
I have a huge demand for clothing and gifts made in the USA. Lisa Denver’s growth charts (made in Palos Verdes Estates), Scrumptious Blankets (made in Los Angeles) and Giggle Moon (made in San Diego) are popular gift items.

5.   What are your top 3 children’s movies or books and why?
Doll House’s most popular books are ‘Guess How Much I Love You’, ‘Pinkalicious’ and ‘Casey At Bat’. The hardback books come as a set with matching Pajamas! These make bedtime a little more fun. ($44 set).

6.    Describe the neighborhood of your store location in Palos Verdes Estates? Did you grow up in the local area?
Doll House is located in Lunada Bay, a surf and beach community within Palos Verdes Estates, California. It is a lot like Newport Beach, where I grew up. The locals are outgoing and take pride in their local boutiques.

Store owner Jean Johnston

7.    What are the hottest trends for kids clothes right now?
Purple, pink, red and bright blue skinny jeans and shorts are going to be a hot trend this spring and summer.

8.    What Le Top or Rabbitmoon Spring 2012 collection is your store’s favorite and why?
Le Top’s ‘Tiny Bubbles’ for girls and “Whales & Sails” for boys have been very popular collections. The prints are a great way to match brothers and sisters, and perfect to wear at the beach club and the 4th of July!
