I’m going to miss these bright colors and patterns

I’m going to miss these bright colors and patterns

January 10, 2012 |  Category:   friends happy purchases life

This is our last bundle of goodies from my friend Tami who owns and designs clothes through her company Ismodern. We’ve been very lucky to have Tami give the girls a set of clothes from each season since I met her back in 2005. It’s always a burst of color when we open the boxes and pull out each item of clothing…and thank god. If it were up to me, the girls would only wear solids and grays because that’s what I gravitate towards without even thinking, so Tami always provides a welcome punch of color and pattern to their wardrobe. Aside from the generous packages every season, I’ve been happy to have supported her business by purchasing clothes, gifts… CONTINUE READING

Thank god for Tami from Ismodern. Because if it wasn’t for her generosity of sending the girls samples over the past few years, the girls would be dressed in mostly solids, neutral grays and navy blues. Tami brings the color, pop and bold patterns into their wardrobe. These photos were from the shoot that I took of her Fall collection earlier this year, but we just received boxes of the actual clothes on Friday. The girls were beyond thrilled because the clothes are so fun and Mia was especially happy to see the reappearance of the gold dress. Now, I don’t know what occasion she’ll have to wear a gold dress, but it’s already been borrowed out to a friend… CONTINUE READING

I did a photoshoot for my friend Tami’s Ismodern Fall 2010 children’s wear line. The girls were also models. Can’t show you the clothes yet, but here are some out takes. As much as the girls are used to being photographed by me, it’s a bit hard to wrangle kids into posing naturally, especially when they start over exaggerating smiles and expressions into what they think is their photo look. Mia in particular, just wanted to play, but once she got into the “modeling zone”, she turned out pose after pose and surprisingly took direction well. Only to humor me, of course because if you can visualize a six year old putting out poses while thinking to herself “oh mom,… CONTINUE READING

It’s true that most days we get junk and bills in the mail, but in the few day before our trip, we received a bounty of happy packages. My friend Tami, designer/owner at Ismodern, was generous as usual with her package of samples for the girls, including the elephant print dress that Claudine was wearing on day 2 of our trip which I love love love. But the best news of all? Tami is packing up her life in LA and relocating her family to NYC this summer, yay! I get asked many times what I dress the girls in. People! Head over to the Ismodern site now where Tami always has past seasons on sale and help her lighten… CONTINUE READING

I’ve written about my love of Ismodern, the children’s clothing line designed by my friend Tami Nguyen Rael, and her enormous generosity. Well, I just received another surprise of samples last night after placing an order for some dresses currently on sale to include in the girls’ Christmas presents (Ismodern has the best sales!). I adore the 2008 fall/winter line and once again, Tami has tucked in shirts, skirts and pants from her current season that will fit both girls. Thank you Tami, for helping to make the girls so fashionable.… CONTINUE READING

A few days ago I received a nice package from Tami, designer and owner of Ismodern. Tami and I became friends through Babygadget, a site that I run and co-own. I’ve been really strict about not spending any money at all in the past 2 months aside from start up costs for the business, but I really could not resist buying an outfit for Mia from Ismodern’s Fall line, which went on sale after her Spring collection went up. What a nice change to get something in the mail that was not cello bags or boxes. When I opened the package, Tami had generously tucked in extra samples from the Fall line for both girls (this is not the first… CONTINUE READING
