Behind The Print: The Pete & The Grace

Now things are getting personal.

Because this handsome print is named for my handsome husband, Pete.

His print was easy because hims so dapper! I knew we wanted a sort of traditional suiting fabric. A neutral print that would play well with the rest of our gang. The perfect date, if you will. Just like my man friend.

So what does Pete think?

Bailey: Do you like your print? Do you feel like it captures a part of your personality?

Pete: Yes, I wanted my namesake print to be a suiting print or plaid, because as Bailey always reminds me, I do have a passion for (mens) fashion. But I also wanted something clean and masculine, because I am super masculine and very clean. I like how the print is all of that, but still coordinates with the crazier prints in the line.

B: In your expert fancy-man opinion, how/where would you use it?

P: I think it should go in our future baby boys room. Right?

(Our “boy” room in Austin, this is Pete utilizing Oprah’s visualization dream tool, methinks.)

B: How do you feel about people sleeping on your face?

P: There is NO bigger compliment than when somebody sleeps on your face. At least that’s what our dog Bernie tells me every night.

You’re scandy and fun and I love you.

And I love The Pete print too.

I also SUPER love the Grace.

Obviously named for my bubble, in her signature colors pink & red, and her pattern hearts.

That’s an old picture, but you can see she has long rocked the pink/red/hearts look. BUBBLE!!

Inspired by the girl herself, but also for her birth announcements.

Gracie only has like 3 words in English:  “mama”, “dada”, and “NO!” Otherwise she speaks fluent Korean, which we discovered when she lost her mind watching the Gangnam Style video. So we will see how productive this interview is…

Bailey: Do you like your print? Do you feel like it captures a part of your personality?

Grace: 너무 귀여워

[I am told by Gracie’s translators that means “very cute” in Korean]

B: Where/how would you use it?

G: [points to crib and nods enthusiastically]

B: How do you feel about people sleeping on your face?

G: NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pete and Grace can come live with you! The prints, not the humans, the humans stay with me. But the print is 20% off until Friday, along with everything else in our online store through Friday thanks to Daily Candy with the code “candy” at check out.

    Dear Bailey,

    LOVE your new store. As a loyal Peppermint Bliss follower, I wanted to let you know I posted about Biscuit on my own blog, because it’s just fabulous. DC needed more press about about it!

    Dear Bailey,

    Biscuit is fantastic! I wanted to spread the word around DC farther, so I put up a post on my blog:
