So excited to be on cupcakeMAG’s Summer 2014 cover feature!! I got to introduce some of my favorite pieces from our Kardashian Kids Summer collection and talk more about the creation of the line and our inspiration behind it. Here is part of the interview, but you can read the full issue HERE!
CM: When did you decide to venture into kid-style?
KK: I’ve always loved kids’ fashion. My grandmother actually has a children’s clothing boutique called Shannon & Co. that she’s had for 30 years in LA Jolla, CA. Every summer, we would go to La Jolla to visit and work in her store. My mom and I also had a kids’ clothing store (smooch) before I had my own children, where I did all the buying for, so it’s kind of in our blood. But, I think it’s also because Kim and I are moms now. We have our own clothing line and we love fashion, and so it just made sense to venture into a children’s line.
CM: Do you feel like the newest collection really represents your style as well as a mix of how you like to dress your own kids?
KK: Absolutely. I love to put Penelope in bold prints, and there is a butterfly print that I just adore in the new collection. We also made sure that the details like the fabrics were especially soft, because as a mom it’s the first thing I look for when I’m shopping for my kids. I touch everything to make sure that it’s super soft and comfortable.
CM: What is your go-to outfit?
KK: I always find that there are just some pieces that you can’t mess up and for me; this outfit is a white t-shirt, skinny jeans and a black motorcycle jacket. It’s effortless when in a rush.
I love Domaine Home, so I was very excited when they wanted to come along on one of my vintage shopping trips to find out how I shop for antiques and my rules for efficient vintage shopping.
My top 5 antique shopping tips:
1. Shop With a Trusted Consort: Bring someone to bounce things off of for a second opinion. I usually bring by best friend Joyce or second cousin CiCi. It’s important to shop with someone who knows your house and style. I’ve brought Scott vintage shopping before, and he’ll never come again; he really does not like it.
2. Take Photos For Reference: If you know you love it, just buy it, because it could be gone. If you are on the fence, take tons of pictures. If you find yourself obsessing and thinking about it after, call immediately and put it on hold or have it delivered.
3. Act On Impulse: I wish I was better at haggling, but I’m really not. If I don’t care about something, I can walk away from it. But if I want something, I’m no good at haggling because I’m so afraid I’ll lose it! Once, Khloe came with me and I said I’d get her the best deal. ‘$200 for these two marble lions? I’ll give you $180.’ They said no.
4. Always Buy Good Mirrors: Is there such a thing as too many mirrors?
5. Avoid These Three Vintage Dont’s:
“Taxidermy: I’m not into it.”
“Lucite: Avoid vintage Lucite if it’s too beat up or scratched. It always looks best new.”
“Fixer-uppers: New paint or reupholstery are one thing, but if a piece needs too much work, like a new leg or a glass top, I know I’ll never get around to it.”
