i first "met" rachelle of kenziepoo when i became pregnant with holden and began my hunt for the perfect nursery.  rachelle is mama to the cutest little girl, kenzington, and i'm pretty sure that she could list off every single children's fashion and design brand out there.  seriously, whatever you are looking for, just ask rachelle because she will find it.  she is hands down the absolute best resource for anything and everything children's fashion and design related.  rachelle is also probably one of the most creative and talented women i know and in addition to running kenziepoo where she shares kenzie's outfits and other children's outfit and decor inspiration, rachelle is the woman behind la petite magazine, an amazing onlines kids' magazine.  so if you haven't yet, please visit rachelle's blog here and check out her magazine here.  you can also strike up a conversation with her here, become a fan here, get inspired by her boards here, and check out behind the scenes photos here.
