Debra Bevard and Jenny Riggs have a lot in common. They\u2019re neighbors. They both have three children. They both love shopping and dressing their kids in cute, playful outfits. They both want to find the best value for their dollar when it comes to children\u2019s clothes. And it\u2019s those similarities that created the spark and led to Gracie Kate\u2019s, an in-home and traveling children\u2019s clothing boutique. The company name is a nod to their daughters\u2019 names, Kate and Allison Grace.

\u201cWe love dressing our kids in quality, stylish clothing, especially our girls, who are three weeks apart,\u201d Riggs says. \u201cWe made a plan to provide affordable, quality clothing to other families and launched Gracie Kate\u2019s in March of this year. We\u2019re listening to our customers with what they would like to see at Gracie Kate\u2019s and are working hard to accommodate them.\u201d

With an online shop at graciekates.com as well as Facebook and Instagram pages, Bevard and Riggs offer clothing for boys, girls and adolescents, along with accessories such as hats, socks and shoes, headbands, and pacifier clips. Shoppers will find brand names, including Mud Pie, RuffleButts, RuggedButts, Bonnie Jean and Rare Editions.

\u201cWe search for quality vendors who also have great prices,\u201d Riggs says. \u201cIf we get a sample of something that doesn\u2019t meet our standards for quality, then we don\u2019t sell it. We\u2019re also thrilled to now offer Beautycounter to our customers. We are proud to be able to provide skin care products that are safe to use for babies, children and women. This has been an exciting addition to our boutique.\u201d

With the slogan \u201cadorable styles at sweet prices,\u201d the pair first developed stocks for newborns through size 6, and they are currently expanding their preteen line. Riggs notes that variety is important: \u201cWe carry everything from items that have ruffles and tutus, to items that can be monogrammed, to items that are quite simple. We like to carry a little bit of everything.\u201d

Ruffles and prints, such as a repeating pattern of lavender hedgehogs on a playful romper or dresses featuring plaid or polka dots, dominate the girls\u2019 clothing selection. Animal prints featuring whales and elephants can be found on boys\u2019 rompers. Price points are very affordable across all collections \u2013 for example, tights with an ankle ruffle start at $9 per pair, and bowties and other neckties cost $9.50.

For fall and winter wear, Riggs says footless ruffle leggings, monogram-ready dresses and tops, and tunics have been best-sellers. She also says warm and cozy hats, boys\u2019 sweatshirts and boys\u2019 button-down shirts are other popular seasonal items. Available for both girls and boys are holiday-themed infant clothes, such as a red- and white-striped romper that brings candy canes to mind. Sample sale items, which might have a slight flaw, also are available online and offer even more affordable options.

\u201cWe want everyone to know that we carry most boutique brands, and we have awesome prices,\u201d Riggs says. \u201cWe also want them to know that if they see something and we don\u2019t have their size, most of the time we can order [it]. Last but not least, we want people to go to our Facebook page, as well, because we do a lot of preorder items there.\u201d

Bevard and Riggs occasionally feature Gracie Kate\u2019s items at local boutique events. Dates and locations of pop-up boutiques and news about flash sales are posted on Gracie Kate\u2019s Facebook page and website, where they welcome feedback and comments.

They are timeless and commemorate an occasion far better than any electronic or purse,\u201d Elizabeth Eby, head of advertising and sales associate, says. \u201cThis holiday season, we are seeing a huge demand for diamond jewelry, which includes everything from engagement rings to yellow and rose gold diamond jewelry to dressy pieces.\u201d

Diamonds may be forever, but the styles constantly evolve. Round diamonds, with baguette diamonds or emerald cut stones, currently are hugely popular. \u201cThe combination of a brilliant round diamond with the intricacy of step-cut baguettes make these pieces truly pop,\u201d Eby describes. \u201cPeople also are asking for both rose and yellow gold jewelry. They absolutely love to mix and match metals, and layer older pieces with something fresh.\u201d

Since the holidays are the most popular season for proposals, here\u2019s what to know before buying that rock. \u201cTake a deep breath and relax,\u201d she advises. \u201cIf you have absolutely no idea what style she might like, check her Pinterest board and ask a friend to borrow one of her rings for size. We make the process incredibly seamless and fun. This is an exciting time for couples \u2013 and you should have nothing but positive feelings throughout the process.\u201d

Genovese Jewelers has a proven record as the preferred source for glamorous gems and jewelry. \u201cWe have been a St. Louis family-owned business for 35 years,\u201d says Eby. \u201cOur customers not only love us, but more often than not, we have helped a parent, grandparent, sibling or best friend. Our roots are deep in this city \u2013 and we are growing more and more every year.\u201d

Whether you seek the ultimate ring with which to propose or a diamond bracelet and earring set that shines as bright as she does, this jewelry store dedicates itself to making your mission achievable. \u201cThe thought of buying a diamond can be incredibly stressful, but it definitely does not have to be that way! At Genovese, we go through the four Cs (cut, color, clarity and carat), so you can decide for yourself just how important each one is to you,\u201d Eby assures. \u201cSome girls want size; some, high clarity; and others want their diamond to be bright white. We promise to find you a diamond not only in your budget, but one that she will love and you will be proud to put on her hand.\u201d

Monster eyes. Flower power. A winged skull. However your child likes to express his or her mood, preferences and personality, Brainskinz has a helmet with an interchangeable shell to fit his or her unique noggin.

Brainskinz \u2013 the brainchild of two St. Louis fathers, John Polansky and Brad Gilmore \u2013 launched this summer to offer helmets that kids actually want to wear instead of regarding them as nuisances. \u201cLike many people in local neighborhoods, I watch kids ride around on bikes without helmets \u2013 they\u2019re often dangling from handlebars as opposed to kids having them on their heads,\u201d Polansky says. \u201cSo, I started asking my kids and their friends why they don\u2019t wear helmets.\u201d It turned out the most important factors to kids were comfort and style, Polansky explains, so Brainskinz set out to address those issues. \u201cOur overall goal is to put more helmets on kids\u2019 heads for a reasonable price,\u201d he says.

Polansky, with a career background in sales and technology, and Gilmore, an accountant, spent five years brainstorming and developing Brainskinz as they also worked full-time jobs. \u201cWe wanted to make stylish helmets and began thinking of lots of different designs and shapes, but we realized safety also was a huge issue,\u201d Polansky says. The pair put their heads together and came up with a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission-certified base helmet and decorative shells that could easily be fitted onto it. \u201cBased on mood, kids can change out their helmet style in a simple fashion,\u201d Polansky says.

St. Louis-based industrial-design firm Fred Sparks helped Brainskinz design the helmet and shell, while local advertising and marketing agency Boxing Clever creates the colorful, playful graphic designs that appear on the shells according to Polansky\u2019s ideas. \u201cWe want to satisfy both boys and girls, so we have six designs: monster eyes, bandana, flower power, skull with wings and two flavors of camouflage \u2013 newly available for the holidays,\u201d Polansky says. Next year, Brainskinz plans to release a new shell design each month, including a sci-fi fighter theme and a DJ design with headphones, a disco ball and lights shining on a dance floor. Holiday designs, sports teams and pop-culture favorites, from top TV shows to movies, also might find their way onto Brainskinz shells in the future, Polansky adds.

The helmets, which are produced by a Chinese manufacturer, feature a hard-plastic base, topped with a pliable thin plastic, as well as the company\u2019s signature brain graphic. On the inside, a soft material similar to satin provides comfortable padding, and an exacting dial allows for the helmet to be accurately sized to a child\u2019s head. An adjustable clasp-style chin strap also helps ensure the perfect fit. And hard-plastic interchangeable shells fit onto the helmet using two nylon straps, located on the front and back. A brief video on brainskinz.com shows consumers how to switch the shells. \u201cOur goal is that it\u2019s so easy a kid can do it in about 30 seconds,\u201d Polansky says.

Although the helmets can be adjusted to a range of sizes, they are aimed to attract boys and girls between ages 8 and 13. The helmets are safe for kids to wear while operating virtually any nonmotorized vehicle \u2013 bicycles, scooters, skateboards, in-line skates and more.

Brainskinz helmets and shells are currently available at brainskinz.com and ship in about three to five business days, although through the holiday season, orders will be hand-delivered within two days of purchase, if needed. \u201cNext year, we want to go to trade shows to get into retail stores,\u201d Polansky notes.

The creative helmets are being received well by parents and kids alike. \u201cParents thank us for making something their kids want to wear,\u201d Polansky says. \u201cAnd kids like the idea of being able to change out the shell designs and that there are new shells coming soon.\u201d

Although Brainskinz is a small business, it\u2019s thinking big for the future. In addition to a slate of new shell designs next year, Polansky says the company hopes to launch a design studio section on its website, where kids, parents and designers can create shell designs to be voted on by visitors. \u201cIf a design gets enough votes, we will manufacture it and maybe even pay royalties on it,\u201d he adds.

Brainskinz is excited about shaking up the helmet industry for kids, Polansky notes. \u201cAt the end of the day, we just want kids to be safe, and we want them to realize that it only takes one time to injure your head.\u201d

And with a stylish flair that can be changed to match a child\u2019s mood at the swap of a shell, he believes kids are more likely to keep those helmets on their melons.

In December, the month of giving, smart shoppers know to nab gifts for loved ones before the most popular items fly from shelves, and what applies to general shoppers goes double for beauty-product devotees.

Although sources of such products abound in the metro area, Nordstrom (shop.nordstrom.com) and Sephora (sephora.com) in particular offer a vast variety of beauty gift sets that would make splendid holiday presents \u2013 so consider the following:

Finally, female shoppers shouldn\u2019t forget the men in their lives when browsing for holiday gifts. Nordstrom, for instance, offers The Jack Pack, a Jack Black gift set that includes a face cleanser, face moisturizer, shave lather and body lotion ($49; $80 value). And for men\u2019s cologne to enhance skin care, a loving gal can\u2019t miss by gifting her guy with a scents-ational Sephora sampler comprising 12 fragrances ($65).

Again, because gift sets abound this season, canny shoppers oughtn\u2019t have a problem finding nonpareil presents for loved ones \u2013 if they\u2019re quick about doing so!

During the holidays, as Sam the Snowman reminds all tried-and-true Rudolph fans, silver and gold (always on trend) become an absolute must. Pair metallic pieces with classics like frayed denim; use them to give a \u201cpop \u201d to all-black outfits; or just generally jazz up your look with gold for a holiday party. You can never shine too brightly at this time of year!

Linda Kilo is on a stylish mission: to help parents outfit their youngsters in cool, classic, comfortable and quality attire from the classroom to the cruise ship.

The Chicago-born Florida native recently opened a second location of her unique Lu Lu Belle Children\u2019s Boutique along the popular shopping row of Clayton Road in Ladue. \u201cWe focus on fun, comfortable clothes that children actually want to wear,\u201d Kilo says, adding that the shop\u2019s trendy, classy clothing and accessories also are comfortable and unique to fit kids\u2019 personalities.

Kilo is based in Naples, Florida \u2013 the locale of her flagship store \u2013 but often visits St. Louis, where she lived for six years. The mother of two was inspired to launch Lu Lu Belle after discovering a lack of children\u2019s boutiques in Florida that carried a wide variety of quality clothing. \u201cMy two children were in school full time,\u201d Kilo says. \u201cOpening Lu Lu Belle gave me something to do while still giving me the flexibility I wanted to be home with my kids.\u201d

The idea to expand with a St. Louis store came out of client demand, Kilo says. \u201cBecause Naples is a popular vacation spot for St. Louisans, I would frequently get customers from the Ladue area, and requests kept pouring in for me to open a second location in St. Louis,\u201d she says.

Kilo happily answered the call, launching a Ladue location in August, close to the 10-year anniversary of her flagship. The company also has started to franchise, with the first franchise store opening this month in Closter, New Jersey. The Ladue shop offers an appealing mix of high-quality, classic and trendy styles for both girls and boys, from newborns to tweens \u2013 up to size 16 in girls and size 8 in boys.

The unique boutique carries a range of top designers of children\u2019s clothing \u2013 many of whom are new to St. Louis. For girls, the store offers quality clothing from Hannah Banana, Kate Mack, Mustard Pie, Biscotti and Haven Girl; for boys, there are dapper duds courtesy of Jak & Peppar, Deux Par Deux, 3Pommes, Wes and Willy, Petit Lem and Cach Cach; and for newborns and infants, trendsetting designers include Magnolia Baby, Mimi & Maggie, Cach Cach, Romantique Bebe, Haute Baby, Mayoral and Miniclasix.

In addition to Lu Lu Belle\u2019s brick-and-mortar stores, a small selection of its kids\u2019 clothing and accessories is available online at lulubelleofnaples.com.

Kilo designed the Ladue shop to evoke a warm, classic, homey atmosphere, with a touch of whimsy that\u2019s appealing to kids and parents alike. \u201cIt\u2019s a fun and happy environment \u2013 people love coming in; children love coming in,\u201d Kilo says. \u201cThey have been pleasantly surprised and excited to see fresh and new items brought to St. Louis. They say, \u2018It\u2019s a breath of fresh air.\u2019\u201d The store\u2019s best-sellers are Kate Mack and Hannah Banana girls\u2019 clothing and accessories. \u201cThey love it because of the elegant look and quality material,\u201d Kilo notes.

Among its new offerings, Lu Lu Belle recently introduced vintage Chanel jewelry for mothers who come in to shop for their little ones. And for fall and winter, customers can expect to see a variety of kids\u2019 cold-weather, holiday and cruise attire \u2013 all in line with the seasons\u2019 coolest trends, from sweaters to coats, boots and hats featuring fringe, fur and unique textures. Items for girls include suede fringe dresses, sequin holiday frocks, fur-collared coats, hooded knit capes and fur-cuffed boots. And for boys, stylish selections such as plaid shirts, crochet sweaters, and corduroy and herringbone pants, as well as cute onesies and cozy sleepers for newborns and infants.

Customers also can look forward to seeing Lu Lu Belle clothing and accessories at the Holiday Mart at Ladue Chapel on Dec. 1 and 2. Similarly, kids and parents should stay tuned for a fashion show coming in April, Kilo says.

Kilo is excited about bringing classic, quality children\u2019s clothing to St. Louis and beyond. She says helping a loved one choose the perfect item for an adored child is close to her heart. \u201cI love seeing their expression when they do,\u201d says Kilo. \u201cIt\u2019s a truly gratifying experience to be a part of.\u201d

The Central West End has a new menswear destination since local boutique East + West recently relocated there from Kirkwood. Ladue News caught up with shop owner Brian Simpson to find out more about the store, its new space and what\u2019s coming next.

What types of products does East + West carry?

We're a men\u2019s lifestyle store specializing in a contemporary casual aesthetic. We dress the everyday guy from head to toe \u2013 apparel and footwear \u2013 and also provide accessories that he\u2019d be interested in, which include bags, apothecary items and household goods.

What differentiates East + West from other menswear stores?

Our service model and unique product offering are two things we take pride in and focus on here at the shop. We try to offer the most unique, hard-to-find products while maintaining a high level of service for our customers. We work with brands from all over the world, and many of them are unique to the region.

What do you look for when finding new lines to carry?

We always ask ourselves, \u201cIs this a brand we would wear ourselves, and can we stand behind the products they offer?\u201d Ultimately, we want to make sure we work with brands that fit into the overall narrative of East + West in that they are authentic, unique and provide value.

Your store just moved \u2013 what has changed at the new location?

The new location in the Central West End can best be described as East + West 2.0. We\u2019ve changed the aesthetic a bit so that it has more of a clean and modern feel to it. Along with that, we\u2019ve brought in a few more brands that fit the new aesthetic and direction of the shop, particularly ones from Europe.

What can customers keep an eye out for in the future at East + West?

We\u2019re excited to continue to expand our online store as well as our in-house East + West line, in which all of the products are manufactured in the USA. Also, we\u2019ll be expanding our footprint within the region, as we\u2019ll be opening a new location in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this December in a new development made entirely of shipping containers.

East + West, 387 N. Euclid Ave., St. Louis, 314-553-9288, eastandweststl.com

With fresh interior design spanning a range of styles, the annual Ladue News Show House made the ideal backdrop for showcasing autumn\u2019s colorful looks. This charming, historic abode, located at 4388 Westminster Place in the Central West End, recently underwent a complete reimagining courtesy of more than a dozen experts, who each added his or her own personality to the home.

Just as color, texture and dimension enliven this year\u2019s Show House, they also can be applied to your fall wardrobe. When temperatures plunge, we tend more and more to dress in muted hues \u2013 but just because the weather\u2019s dull, it doesn\u2019t mean your closet should be, as well. This season, pepper your wardrobe with bright pieces that bring a bit of pop and shine to even the grayest of autumn days.

Editor\u2019s Note: The 2016 Ladue News Show House, presented by Dielmann Sotheby\u2019s International Realty, closed to the public on Nov. 6, but you can learn more about the home, rooms and designers here.

Thank You!

Ladue News wishes to thank:

Working women like to keep their makeup minimal during the day \u2013 but what happens when post-work plans unexpectedly arise? Here\u2019s how to easily achieve the perfect day-to-night transition.

During the workday, women commonly wear foundation, concealer, powder, blush and mascara \u2013which together make a great base. On the outside chance that you run short on time before unexpected evening plans, though, always bring to work a makeup bag that includes makeup wipes, concealer, powder, bronzer, blush and eye makeup.

Then you can follow these simple steps to go from workaday to wow:

1.\u2002Remove your under-eye concealer with a makeup wipe because the concealer has likely dulled after eight or so hours of wear. Take care, though, not to strip any of your foundation.

2.\u2002Glam up your eye makeup either by creating a smoky eye or by adding a little shimmer to your lids. (Do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.)

3.\u2002Apply eyeliner and add another layer of mascara to your lashes.

4.\u2002Using another makeup wipe, remove any particulate eye shadow that may have settled beneath your peepers.

5.\u2002Reapply your concealer. Feel free to apply a healthy portion of concealer under your eyes; after all, you endured a long day at the office, and now, with luck, you have a long, fun night ahead of you \u2013 so layer on that concealer!

6.\u2002Set the concealer with powder so your under-eyes stay bright and beautiful all night long. At this point, also touch up any other parts of your face that need powder.

7.\u2002Add bronzer to your cheekbones\u2019 contours.

8.\u2002Top off the apples of your cheeks with blush.

So! In just eight easy-peasy steps, you can be out the door and headed toward your evening adventure!
