The Pack Place — child style
If you're on the cutting edge of fashion- and in particular child style, don't miss the new issue of La Petite Magazine (free & online!)... It's somewhat dark, edgy and full of lovely inspiration. As I was perusing it this morning with a big cup of coffee, I noticed a boy shirt similar in style to a W.D. Wolf holiday sample in production now! Positive affirmation that our design instinct is on target with pulsing trends... Happy long weekend! I hope you have big plans for a bbq... at the beach. Summer, here we come! P.S. If you have extra time, look at the past issues, too... I could sit here all day!
This weekend we celebrated my Jack's 6th birthday- cupcakes for breakfast and a homemade brownie cake after dinner (two layers of brownies smothered in real whipping cream). I cannot believe he is six. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday... Such a sweet boy. A man's man with a sensitive soul, he has an obsession with bugs and isn't scared to hold any of them: stinging caterpillars, cicadas, spiders... He hates wearing shoes and loves wearing swimsuits to bed. He likes dinosaurs, super heroes and the color black. He is my Huck Finn and I am so proud of the little guy he's becoming. On Sunday afternoon, our neighborhood hosted the annual crawfish boil. I dressed Alice in the Grace ruffle bubble (always looking for an opportunity to show off!) and she was the belle of the boil... I think the feminine bubble looked even more precious on my little tomboy (covered in dirt and bearing scabs on her nose, knee and elbow). I hope your weekend was lovely, too. Have a happy Monday!

Wolf items like these!"][/caption] Congrats to NUMBER 73! You've won a $50 gift certificate to Well Dressed Wolf! So, who is number 73 and how did we choose a winner? Similar to our last giveaway, here's how we did it... We used a facebook app called Easy Promos that kept track of each entry. The generated information was exported into an Excel file where entrants were organized into a neat, numbered list. We took that list and entered it into a more random "list generator" on random.org. This re-organized the entries for us and gave each entry a unique number. Next, we entered the total number of entrants into the random number generator and "rolled the dice" so to speak. Out popped number 73 which corresponds with: ELIZABETH DOYLE TIERNEY!! Congrats, Elizabeth!! We'll email you with the details this afternoon. Later today we'll post the dollar amounts that each of you earned for your referrals. This amount can be used toward a purchase during any of our facebook sales. We'll email you with details using the email addresses listed on the promotion entry form. Thank you all so much for playing and referring your friends to Well Dressed Wolf. You're going to be so thrilled with the quality of your W.D. Wolf clothes.

Sometimes I forget that the kids are always there- always listening and watching and paying careful attention. They know what is going on in our lives even when we don't specifically tell them about it. We had our first facebook pre-order sale the other night, and this is the note I found on the countertop the next morning... from my seven year old. I actually cried- and I don't consider myself to be an overly emotional person. How sweet that she doesn't resent the extra time I spend working at my computer. What a blessing that she notices and acknowledges my hard work- that she's proud of me. Praise God for children. And just because I cannot stop myself, I'll give you a peak at something else kinda sweet... the Grace bubble on my Alice... to die for! You have to wait to get a clear picture but you'll get the idea... XOXO, Sarah P.S. See the thousands of dollars flying in the air?? She appears to have a lot of confidence in us!
