Hey There, Georgie Boy… giveaway

***WINNER PICKED 11/5 WITH RANDOM.ORG***

***CONGRATULATIONS, SHAMA-LAMA MAMA!!!***


I'll admit it. When we found out the baby-that-turned-out-to-be-Jasper was a boy, I was sort of sad. I had visions of buying cutesy sister outfits and, of course, reusing much of Roo's vast outgrown wardrobe. When I resigned myself to having a little boy, I was startled to discover just how much less fun it is to shop for boys than girls.

Holy cow! I couldn't believe how hugely lame 99% of boys' clothing is, even on the boutique level. Bob and I are not organized sports lovers, so that knocks off half of the available boy clothes right there. The rocker thing is sort of cool, but can come off costumey, and is pretty overdone at this point. I'm not even going to address sailor collars, smocking and monograms. Eeek.

Then I came across Georgie World in a review of the Bubble trade show on My Mom Shops.



Here, at last, was clothing for cool little boys who don't need to pretend to be little men. Wearable, cute (not cutesy!), and altogether fun, Georgie World is a breath of fresh air for parents sick of making do with their sons' wardrobes. Their slogan tees are smart, not snarky, and are illustrated by the amazing S. Britt. Here is the one that I first fell in love with:



It turns out Georgie World founder/designer Bethany had similar issues when shopping for her own boys. Check out her great Squidoo Lens on the best boy's clothing lines. She has also graciously provided an entire outfit (!) for one lucky reader's little boy, including a long sleeved Daddy-O top and Lil' Man trousers in black, sized 12 months, and a Snow Monster tee in size S (2):





This super stylish outfit is worth more than $130!

  10. 4 outfits...my favorite thing from the Georgie World website are the cute little madras plaid patchwork shorts from the Summer 2008 collection.

  25. Well, she mentions 4 outfits, but the photos were temporarily unavailable from Flickr... looked like more than 4 photos, but could be multiple photos of the same outfits. :-)

    Went to the Georgieworld website to see more. OMG, so cool! My son needs those clothes. My favorite item is the green recersible hoodie from the 2007 winter/fall line.

    Pick me, pick me!

  28. She describes four outfits, but then there is another boy too. So I think you mean four, but it could be five, or maybe even more. It is SO hard to find anything cute for boys, especially if you are trying to avoid sports (I absolutely agree with you there). I walked into a kid's boutique type store while I was on a trip. They had clothes against one wall for boys, and the entire rest of the store was for girls. It was crazy!
