Fox Kids & Baby Getting Hip with Fall Winter ’15 Collection

It was a morning of non-stop snacking, fashion shopping, tiny clay crafting, playing dress-up and being in their element at FOX Kids & Baby Fall Winter ’15 preview. If you still do not know by now how much our girls love FOX, go read about our fashionista moments with #FOXFashionSG since 2013! Gosh it has been almost 2 years already? So can I declare myself as a FOX Fashion style guru since I know almost all their collection over these years? I am very happy to see them evolving and bringing in better and more stylish designs over the years. And THIS season is probably my personal favourite!

The girls styled in their upcoming releases for Fall Winter ’15, and these two outfits are my favourite picks from the preview. But silly me left them out in our stash! Must-go-back to buy them soon.

Moving slightly away from their usual cutesy cartoon character designs, FOX Kids & Baby brings in more stylish prints and monochromatic colours too. And finally the girls can dress to match me and Ayah instead of the other way round, because both me and him has got limited colours in our wardrobe and mainly in shades of black, greys and red, so this collection fits in well in our family!

The girls picked their own clothes to try during the preview, and this they do it too often these days whenever we are out shopping. Good thing I am still able to control them still and restrict any unnecessary spending.

Besides all the shopping and snacking on retro snacks from the 80s, we also got our hands busy making our very own cute accessories! Am impressed that Ayra managed to complete quite a bit with help from friend from Wing Tai.


And these are our combined effort from that day. Not bad right?

Doesn’t she look like a big little fashionista shopper? Yes she tried on all those pieces. It was kinda crazy in the fitting room that day.

One of the many failed attempts to get the girls pose for the camera. But this is quite cute lah, one busy eating and the other being her wacky self.
Matching outfits for our usual weekend day out to Universal Studios Singapore.

With whole lot more new designs to choose from this season, I think you’ll probably see me popping into FOX Kids & Baby every week to check out their new arrivals. And now they also have got a special treat for wt+ members, spend $60 nett in stores and get a free backpack for your little one.

MELIJOE – Kids Fashion from Paris to Singapore in 24 hours

Ayra and Zara are always asking to be dressed in pretty clothes whenever we head out, even if its just downstairs to the playground! Once Ayra requested to wear her princess gown for dinner at a nearby coffee shop and I had explain with 101 excuses so that she would put on the tee and shorts instead.

With little time to spare shopping these days, I do lots more purchases online from groceries, home essentials, gifts and clothes. When I was introduced to MELIJOE, I couldn’t stop drooling over all the pretty dresses, with some fit for a red carpet appearance or a black tie event.

When one is stuck with no idea on what to wear for an upcoming occassion, one can head over to MELIJOE lookbook specially styled and designed for Singapore to get some inspirations. Find casual daily wears to beautiful dresses for wedding reception and more.

For those who needs new clothes fast, MELIJOE can ship from Paris to Singapore in 24 hours via FedEx. And this was Ayra smiling from cheek to cheek when she received her surprise package from MELIJOE just before bedtime.

With packaging as cute as this, MELIJOE is also a great gift shopping site too for babies, girls and boys!

When asked to pick one dress from their collection, it took me more than a week to decide, and I ended up getting two because Ayra or Zara would be jealous if one did not get a new dress from Mummy. Going for casual yet chic and cute, I picked up two matching dresses from the Catimini collection.


Zara in the Printed percale sundress by Catimini. She’s 19 months now and wearing size 3, Ayra managed to fit this dress too (cos Ayra is just way skinny for her age). It is still a little long for Zara (about 90cm tall), but fits well for Ayra who is about 100 cm tall.


Ayra is dressed in Cotton voile sundress by Catimini. Size 4 fits this girl just nicely and she loves this dress! Couldn’t stop spinning around just to show her love for the beautiful sundress.

Tips to Buying Clothes for Newborn

Do you recall the excitement when you discover the gender of your baby? When I learned about the gender for my first child, I was super hyped! My mind filled with hundred and one ways to dress up my baby girl when she arrives. Beautiful dresses, bright tees, cute onesies and so much more fun ways to dress the baby up! And what happened?

Before the baby even arrived, your new wardrobe is filled with newborn clothes! When the baby arrive, she starts to grow in super speed and mummy can’t finish dressing her up in newborn clothes before she grow too big to fit.

This happen to not just myself I’m sure. I’ve seen new parents shopping for newborn stuff in boxes, including clothes! I’ve often wanted to go up to them and tell them to stop wasting money, but I just can’t do it! I hate myself for not stepping up, guess I’m still very much a conservative mum.

Before you head down for your next shopping spree for clothes, here are some tips for you.

[box type=”1″]Buy just enough for twice a week of washing. Newborns grow very fast and some newborn may even be too big to fit into newborn (0-3month) clothes at birth. So buy just enough of newborn clothes before the baby is born. Shopping for clothes is never ending, and you’ll have a lot of opportunities to shop after giving birth. So don’t need to be too kiasu.[/box]

I love T-shirts for babies, as they can last longer as compared to onesie, I love that the FOX baby tees come with buttons on the shoulder line for easy wearing for baby

[box type=”1″]A personal guide when preparing for newborn:
This guide is for those who plan to wash baby’s clothes every two days.

  1. Sleepwears (at least 6 sets)

    Get comfortable sleeping wears, long sleeves and pants if baby is going to be sleeping in air-conditioned rooms. I love one piece sleep wears that covers their hands and feet.

  2. Onesies (6 pcs)

    Onesies are no brainer. They wear easily and is easy for diaper changing. But get the 3 to 6 months instead of newborns so they can be worn for a longer time.

  3. T-shirts (3 to 5 pcs)

    For the occasion outings.

  4. Pants (2 pcs)

    Love those that has got the feet covered cos it is a challenge to keep baby’s socks on all the time. Socks that are too tight leaves marks on the skin, socks too loose fall off easily.

  5. Shorts (2 pcs)

    For the warmer days, shorts is good, even with onesies so that the baby’s thigh is covered in case they catch a cold from too much wind from the fan.

When buying onesies, get a size bigger than the baby so they get to wear for longer time

Shorts or pants should also be at least one size bigger as we need to fit in the diaper. When these are too tight, the skin may not be able to breathe properly hence causing rashes to grow

Now that you’ve got tips on what you can get for your baby, head down to shop soon! It’s the year end sale and many places are giving great discounts. From our favorite shopping place for clothes, FOX is having their end season sale with up to 70% off! This offer too hard to miss and I’m heading to shop later today! 😛

Ayra meets Mr Men and Little Miss at FOX

Before Baby No. 2 arrives, we managed to sneak some time together with Ayra for a fun shopping trip to meet Mr Men and Little Miss at FOX Kids & Baby. These adorable characters come just at the right time as I just started introducing Ayra to their books. She has so far met Little Miss Stubborn, Little Miss Busy, Mr Forgetful and Little Miss Princess.

And that day at Mr. Men and Little Miss collection launch at FOX Kids & Baby, she got to meet a brand new character…

She was delighted to score her first Little Miss plush, the Little Miss Cawaii! How cute is she!

You can get yours too at FOX Kids & Baby! Continue reading “Ayra meets Mr Men and Little Miss at FOX”

Ayra the Fashionista X FOX Kids & Baby

We love shopping! And FOX Kids & Baby is in our top 3 favorite fashion store for Ayra since she was a little baby. Now that she has a full length mirror at home and at Grandparent’s place, she insists on picking her own clothes after bath every day! It is a challenge keeping up with her fashion needs but now, for the rest of the year, Ayra and her soon-arriving little sister will have new fashion apparels every month! We are SUPER thrilled to be collaborating with FOX Fashion for their Kids and Baby collection!

Ayra was excited to see their new Fall Winter 2013 collection over the long weekend at FOX Kids & Baby (City Square Mall) and she had a blast trying out new clothes and hogging both the fitting rooms! Good thing we went pretty early in the day and the crowd hasn’t quite fill up the store yet.
