Here comes the weekend!

happy halloween from ses petites mains!

Costumes of Halloween Past

This year my daughter and her friends organized a group effort for costumes, which meant that we didn't, GULP, make one together!  So enjoy this 'retrospective' of our costume collection from Halloweens Past--designed by Mother & Daughter.

Happy Halloween!

2003, Horton, the Elephant
2004, The 2nd year of Elephants, tusks this year!
2005, A Robot
2006, Dorothy, the Halloween Right of Passage
2007, the Flamenco Dancer & Patch-Eyed Pirate
2008, The Little Mermaid

The sweetest Bespoke Flower Girl dresses

We love a good wedding--the anticipation, the flowers, the toasts, the love 'in the air', the setting,--be it tiny chapel, grand cathedral, city hall or coastal vista--and of course, the dresses!
And when the event is full of Ses Petites Mains Flower Girl dresses, then we are over the moon! 

Flower girl dresses, junior bridesmaid dresses, custom made flower girl dresses, bespoke wedding dresses, featured in martha stewart wedding, made in san francisco

Case in point--just look at these two sweet Flower Girls in their Cecelia dresses with contrast sash & Peony Blossoms.  The aisle was awash in sweet, fuscia silk sophistication, with shades of blue peony blossoms.  Job well done girls (and you too, Cecelia).

Let us help you with Flower Girl or Junior Bridesmaid dresses for your special day--email us at boutique@sespetitesmains.com to discuss your needs.

We love our fans!

This super sweet Tiny Chic customer has been populating our fan page lately, and we couldn't be happier.  She's everything Ses Petites Mains--she runs like a girl; she plays like a girl; & she dresses like a girl.

And truly precious in our Shirley dress in Alfresco Check.
Thanks for sharing!  

Send us a photo of your Tiny Chic little one
in her favorite Ses Petites Mains &
we'll send you a gift card to our
Tiny Chic Boutique.

A good reminder for us all.

What is not to love about every inch of this?!
The reminder to sing, dance & find enchantment in life;
in addition to the smiles, colors & textures of this photo.

 "In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed,
they would ask one of four questions:
When did you stop dancing?
When did you stop singing?
When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"

carving pumpkins, pondering root vegetables (in the video below)
and dropping by sweet new shops like
Metier's new jewel box storefront in Hayes Valley.

Enjoy yours, whereever it takes you!

Thanks to Jeff Tweedy

I was so lucky to see & hear Jeff Tweedy perform new music, with his very own son on drums, just a couple weekends ago, under the blue skies of San Francisco's Indian Summer, at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.  And in his awesomeness, he performed California Stars for the all Wilco fans who were just hoping that he would --

Enjoy this performance with the great Billy Bragg.

Our Saturday, in pictures.

Finally getting around to planting our succulent box aka the Dewey Decimal library filing drawer we found at the flea market a few months back.

From the patio area of the Exploratorium, we watched the Blue Angels soar (and scream!) over San Francisco and just miss (or so it appeared that way!) Coit Tower.  Their 'track marks' littered the perfectly clear October sky.

My daughter experiencing the Mood Light at the Exploratorium.  It was not UNlike a very quiet, contained Grateful Dead show!

Oh, to drink from the toilet--
I couldn't bring myself to do it, dear Exploratorium!

How long are legs are, thanks Exploratorium! 
I also like how the mirror shows off my daughters sparkly jellies and mismatched socks!

I loved this--a seasonal color wheel of produce from the Bay Area.  As beautiful to see as it is to experience all that wonderful produce!

October must be the new June...

The aisle has not known such lovelieness!

Our Gertrude dress, in Clip Dot was the perfect
complement to all the sweet detail.

Wednesday and the flu is here

While I ride out the sniffles & exhaustion,
I thought it would be nice to leave a few
read-worthy bits & inspiring images to keep
you busy til I return, healthy & energized!

On Mothering sans Judgment, from the lovely
 Design for the Minikind 

On the complexities of Tweens and their ever-changing moods, from Rachel Veil from the Huffington Post.

This most inspired article from TMagazine regarding designer Stephan Jansen (I'm fully obsessed with his covetable sewing room below).

Tmagazine, Stephan Janson, design inspiration, new york times sunday paper,
The sewing room of Stephan Janson

How gorgeous are these pattern & colors of Dries Van Noten's Spring collection--love them.

The clogs of Paris' Kerstin Adolphon would be a
dream for my daughter--
must go see on our next visit to Paris.
