Home and History Editorial

This fall, we headed to the banks of Lake Washington for a nostalgia-heavy editorial at the extraordinary Robbins home. "A visit to the lake house, surrounded by an English-style garden, will take you on a wonderful journey through four generations of family history and endless stories from those who lived it," says Baby and Company owner Jill Donnelly. "Holidays were embellished and celebrations were many. Its residents spent both there first days on earth and their last days in this home." Lining the walls are treasures ranging from preschool masterpieces to a photographic map of the family's history. More than being a beautiful backdrop for our favorite fall looks, the Robbins house embodies what we love about autumn: the feeling...

Christina Hicks x Baby & Company

We grabbed a coffee with art director/photographer extraordinaire Christina Hicks to learn more about her dedicated interest in Slow Fashion, vegan living, and what makes fall in Seattle so special.  What about Seattle inspires you as a photographer and as a resident? Hicks: Seattle’s unique geography inspires me most—the abundance of plant life, bodies of water, and access to wilderness in every direction. Though I’m not a landscape photographer, it’s an inspiring starting point to have that as a backdrop. As a resident, I love how easy it is here to be able to explore one of the large parks, or quickly escape to a national park on a day off. We’re so lucky here! Why are you passionate about slow fashion? Oh man…I...

Baby & Company Supports the Mockingbird Society

At Baby and Company we have always placed a strong emphasis on community. We don't just want to be the city's go-to boutique, but also a part of the fabric of the Seattle—supporting local initiatives and programs that benefit our neighbors. One such program is the Mockingbird Society, a nonprofit that advocates for and assists children in the foster care system with the goal of ending childhood homelessness and improving the foster system. The youths are taught leadership and self-advocacy skills, and many of them speak in front of the legislature in Olympia to campaign for change. Baby and Company sponsors the Mockingbird Society with a donation of ten percent of our Closet Sale proceeds every year, as well as hosting a table...

Accidental Icon x Baby & Company

Accidental Icon, Lyn Slater, is redefining fashion blogging for the most attuned set. Her New York–based blog caters to urban intellectual women leading, what she dubs, “interesting but ordinary” lives.  Slater’s style is one of independence, strength, and conviction. Much like our own Baby & Company tribe, she believes in the art of dressing—curating a closet that feels both modern and timeless, but undeniably authentic.     We met up with the Icon herself in her NYC stomping grounds for a shoot in some of our favorite fall ‘17 styles. Shop the looks below.  Look one: Jacket, shirt, sweater, boots.  Look two: Sweater, dress.  Look three: Shirt, pants, denim, boots.   Look four: Shirt, pants, denim, boots.

Exchange Policy: Colton Winger on Blurring Fashion Gender Lines

What's better than dressing from just one side of the closet? Borrowing from both. Not just unisex styles, both men and women can pull pieces from traditionally gender-specific wardrobes to accentuate for added expression.  We brought in Seattle tastemaker Colton Winger and draped him in womenswear, proving that blurred gender lines in fashion have never looked so good.

Seattle's Dark Days

The change in weather requires an attitude adjustment; daylight shrinks and we learn to enjoy the darkness for its unique qualities. As autumn envelopes us we return to big sweaters and favorite coats: cold weather dressing is both a seasonal pleasure and a potential minefield. Inspired by the changing of the leaves, the crispness in the air, and the vibrant sunsets, Baby & Company has curated a collection that celebrates the return to our coziest season.   You can shop this outfit here and here.   You can shop this outfit here, here, and here.     You can shop this outfit here, here, here, and here.  Playlist by KEXP DJ Larry Rose The change in the weather marks Seattle's return to its moodiest season.We are easing the transition with help from KEXP DJ Larry Rose,...
