Catalog Your Wardrobe and Get Trendy Kid's Clothes: What's New About Town
Life in the Hong Kong lane.
If you’ve ever shopped for your first born, then you’ll recognize that complete panic on walking into a store to be surrounded by such an overwhelming choice of products. How do you work out what’s necessary? Now Tiny Footprints has introduced its Parents to Be Planning Sessions, to help you figure out exactly what is important in those first few months. The free sessions are 45 minutes (with drinks and snacks provided!) to walk you through the options available—from strollers to furniture to feeding accessories—and help you plan and budget for your new arrival.
July 25 and Aug 9 group sessions, or book a one-on-one session any time. 10/F, 1 Duddell St., Central, 2522-2466, www.tinyfootprints.com
Find your way around perennial storage problems with Hong Kong’s new wardrobe storage service, Pakt. This idea, from Barbara Yu Larsson, sounds very sophisticated: The “clothing management service” will take away your garments, photograph and catalogue them, and create a digital wardrobe on the website. Need something back? Not only does rummaging through your virtual clothes rail make it feel like you’re making a new purchase, but you can request your items be returned at the click of a button. Add on a dry cleaning or pressing service and they’ll actually be delivered back to you in better condition than when they left!
Love by Mary J
Calling all little fashionistas: trendy kids’ store Love by Mary J has just opened its doors in North Point. You’ll find a heap of cool international designs here such as Ruff and Huddle’s casual streetwear (recently worn by the Beckham brood), matching mom-and-daughter outfits from Lovie by Mary J, and popular French label Coq en Pate. Fun, colorful accessories include children’s handbags, cartoon cushions and Japanese candles. What’s more, if your little ones are fed up of shopping, they’re free to doodle on the walls! The tantrums might come when you try to leave…
