Autumn/Winter 2010

Did somebody say Winter?! It's incredibly hard to be thinking about Winter when it's 39 degrees! Quite the contrary, i've really been nutting out the range for Autumn/Winter 2010 and enjoying every minute of it. I have focused on pulling together a collection from several suppliers, from Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia as well as our clever Canberra counterparts. The colourways are exciting and fresh for 2010 for the boys and soft but rich for the girls.

KnuffleKid, a favourite supplier of mine of really funky, vintage inspired, hand printed fabrics that are really different to the 'norm'. Some will love the style, and I am sure there will be some out there that won't. I love it. We took this photo of little Isabella looking oh so cute in the KnuffleKid 'prom skirt'. Layered vintage lace skirt, draped with a bold black and cream check. Fully reversible too. It is a fabulous addition to any wardrobe, very versatile, for summer or winter - team it with a pair of black footless tights or leggings in winter with a roll neck jumper or cardi. Summer, it needs a simple tank. The beautiful thing about this skirt is that it has press studs all around the inside so it is fully adjustable and grows with your girl. Isabella is 2, and a 6 year old bought one from the shop last week!

So a sneak peak at the KnuffleKid stock that will be coming into MissChief Maker in March. For the boys, it's fresh. Its bold. It's so cool. I'm not going to show everything - otherwise they'll be no suprises! I am really making a real effort to find some great boys stuff for all those customers that keep on asking "what about the boys?". I'll bring it - they'll just have to come and find it with me at MissChief Maker!

And for the girls, well that's easy.....I have a little misschief maker that looks so gorgeous in KnuffleKid. Look what I'll be dressing her in this winter

Three Little Trees from Queensland has come out with a cracking range for the boys this season. I'll be focusing on the coolest track suit, I don't mean the daggy bottle green fleecy lined type you buy from KMart for $9.95, but a trackie that you're little Chief would be proud to wear out. As well as some fantastic printed long sleeve tees. They're winter range is all still hush hush, so I won't tell yet!

BrusselSprouts is busy knitting and sewing this year. I missed out last year, there was no stock left when I got around to ordering so I've saved the good stuff for this year, and I've made it. Just. To order some devine handmade, handknitted, hand crocheted pieces from Victoria Crisp's label BrusselSprouts. One of my favourite pieces that I missed out on last year is back for 2010, the woolleen Jacket. I'm going to have it available in 2 colours and will be in store in March. Victoria has also created some amazing dresses this year which MissChief Maker customers are going to LOVE!

Here's to thinking about rugging up.....
