BEHIND-THE-SCENES: LE TOP’S FALL 2015 PHOTO SHOOT

Posted on January 30th, 2015 by Lennore Merz

Mass pandemonium reigns!

Last month, we had a Casting Call for models, officially called a “Go See”. It was so hard choosing between the 120 adorable kids who showed up. The lucky ducks who did get picked got to come back and be a part of Fall 2015 Photo Shoot!

We had a fun and zany 2 days here at le top during our photo shoot! Adorable little models were running around, trying on outfits, and smiling big for the camera!

We took over 5,000 shots of babies and toddlers, and had to narrow our selection down to 180-200 shots. This was no easy task!

Here are some behind the scenes and sneak peek shots. We hope you enjoy them!

Le Top Darling of the Week: Jillian

Posted on January 26th, 2015 by Iliana

Jillian 1

Our Darling of the Week is 2 year-old Jillian! Darling indeed, here she is wearing her le top ‘Sweet Rose’ French terry dress and rose tights – a charming must have!

Jillian’s favorite food is the oh so yummy American classic, grilled cheese! One thing this darling does not like is oatmeal cookies. Her favorite toys are Shopkins (collectible characters).

Jillian likes to pretend play and as the youngest of five I am sure she keeps everyone entertained, including her 3 legged American Staffordshire Terrier.

Congratulations to our Darling of the Week, Jillian!

Oakleigh {le top ‘Sweet Rose’ jumpsuit}

Happy, sassy, and ready to take on the world! Meet our 4 ½ month old darling of the week, Oakleigh! She loves jabbering, watching sports, and watching Kathie Lee & Hoda – sounds like the making of a future television presenter!

We are told this little cuddle loving darling was born 7 weeks and 1 day early. She spent 16 days in NICU, but she is thriving now! Her favorite food is milk, milk, and you guessed it… more milk! Her favorite toy is the Baby Einstein Activity Jumper.

We are so happy to see this darling “growing up le top!”

Check out these beautiful photos of Oakleigh in her le top outifts:

Congratulations to our Darling of the Week, Oakleigh!

 

Le Top Darling of the Week: Zane

Zane

Smiling ear to ear and full of giggles, this week’s darling is 9 ½ month old Zane! With his beautiful blue eyes, here he is sporting his cocoa striped short sleeve romper from the le top ‘Puppy’s Day Out’ collection (pictured above).

Zane enjoys being tickled, playing peek-a-boo, and getting a bath! We are told he loves to jump, whether it’s on your lap or in your arms. He has a little kangaroo hidden somewhere inside! Zane’s favorite foods are sweet potatoes, pumpkin, broccoli, bananas, and apricots — yummy! Two of his favorite toy’s are “Sophie” the giraffe (his chewing buddy) and his break dancing Mickey Mouse toy.

This past Christmas Zane and his family received two very special gifts. With a little encouragement from Zane’s grandmother, Zane began crawling at exactly 9 months. Grandma prompted Zane to crawl with Happy Baby Organic Puffs, which are apparently yummy enough to crawl for. Way to go Zane! As for the song “All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth” well, mom tells us he got them just in time for Santa!

Here are a few more photo’s of this darling wearing le top:le top

As you can see, Zane is an avid le top wearer! Thanks to his Aunt Amy and his grandmother, aka “Cakes”, who started buying le top for her grand daughters 7 years ago! Now she has a handsome grandson to spoil with le top!

Congratulations to our darling of the week, Zane!

Posted on January 7th, 2015 by Lennore Merz

Brrr - it’s cold outside! Keep the kids entertained indoors with a simple, old-school craft project – paper snowflakes! Making paper snowflakes is easy, it requires supplies that you normally have at home, and it’s a great way to have fun with the kids.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Letter-size multipurpose paper
  • Scissors
  • Glitter glue (Optional)
  • Tape

Steps:

1.  Start by folding paper into a triangular shape by folding diagonally in half. Cut the letter size paper into a perfect square.

2.   Next fold paper into a triangular shape by folding diagonally in half.

3.  Fold the triangle in half along the middle again in order to make an even smaller triangle.

4.  While keeping the triangle folded, cut out random shapes along the edges. Natural snowflakes are unique, and no two are exactly alike! So feel free to try a variety of designs, and have fun with it!

5.  Carefully unfold the paper to discover your paper snowflake.

(Optional: Add silver glitter glue for a special, sparkly effect.)

Once you have made several different snowflakes, you can decorate the house with them. Tape a few on windows and sliding glass doors for a fun, wintery look!

Do you have any fun, easy, winter craft projects? If so, please tell us about it!
