I’ve previously admitted that when I was single in the city, way before meeting Scott, watching couples push a Bugaboo was the epitome of the happy, perfect, successful NYC family. I couldn’t wait to snag a husband and steer my own Bugaboo with a Gucci diaper bag hanging off it. I never considered any other strollers when I was pregnant. My bugaboo has served me well for the past 6.5 years.
It blows my mind that its almost time for my stroller to retire and that my family is on to the stage of life —school, homework, after school activities. They always say that times flies by once you have kids. Greenlee’s infancy and toddlerhood has past so incredibly fast. She’s even already wearing girls size clothes.
My days of purchasing baby products have come and gone. One and one and done. Sir Ian Bian, our heir, and Princess G, our fiercely independent and strong-willed Greenlee Girl. Bugaboo no longer corners the market, being replaced by Uppa Baby and City Minis. In my Facebook feed, I’m seeing car seats that now install themselves. (My husband so wishes that was available when I was pregnant with Ian). I also received a PR pitch on new baby gear which included Maxi Cosi/Quinny Rachel Zoe Collection.
For fashionistas like myself, who still want a splash of style, Rachel Zoe has collaborated with Maxi Cost/Quinn to outfit a line of their best selling car seats and strollers in her signature style. These pieces will have leather and bold accents and will be a fun way to take baby out in style in 2016. Available first at Nordstrom, the new collection designed by Rachel Zoe for Quinny and Maxi-Cosi is truly one of a kind, inspired by the jetsetter lifestyle and paying homage to the luxurious detail found in the design of vintage leather luggage. Premium cognac leather and oversized gold detailing compliment classic black and white fabric for a look that is tailored to perfection, allowing parents to walk their way in style.
Additional fashions will be available at a later date. Fingers crossed, there will be child booster seats as part of the collection.
Are there any new baby products you are coveting?
