Let me introduce you to Haute Mommies & Bella Babies, a fabulous online store and Houston-based boutique servicing the Clear Lake area of Texas.
When owner Darcy Santala contacted me through Facebook, I was thrilled to peruse her lovely online store and sing its praises. “We’re always looking for the coolest new baby stuff,” she tells me. She’s also looking for the coolest, new baby stuff that’s true to the “go-local” philosophy – such as Houston-born Infantissima (just featured on CRT recently!) – and others Made in the USA.
We cater to stylish moms-to-be, new moms as well as friends and family members of expecting women who are looking for the perfect gift for their loved one and impending new addition.
Staff Recommendations. Mother of two girls, Darcy knows what to look for when sourcing for her store. She’s dedicated to finding high-quality, adorable and durable, unique and versatile products at an affordable price.
You’ll find things for moms and maternity; girls, boys and parent-friendly gear; nursery; gifts as well as gift certificates and wrapping service. Plus, don’t hesitate to find out what the staff recommends. It’s all here!
Hand-selected and Haute Mommie Approved. Darcy selects all of the products herself –and she’s also used them all with her own children. “The majority of our maternity clothes are designed to be worn during and after pregnancy,” Darcy says, “and trust me, this stuff is so cute you’ll want to wear it after baby arrives.” In fact, many shop employees actually wear maternity outfits all the time, and no one would know it, unless they ask!
Cool Partners. The Haute Mommies & Bella Babies shop is located at 477 Bay Area Blvd in Houston, TX 77058. I’m especially impressed with Darcy’s partners list, which includes a pregnancy spa and ultrasound clinic, a maternity leave coach –and Seattle, WA based Dabble Wine (“For after baby arrives or for a little fun before getting pregnant.”). A girl after my own heart!
