Hi! My name is Marissa Kraxberger, I'm the Head of Creative at Oscar de la Renta…this means that I oversee the art direction for ready-to-wear, accessories, home, fragrance and childrenswear. I'm also the founder of the Oscar de la Renta childrenswear blog, George & Ruby, where I juggle life at the intersection of fashion and sippy cups. When I'm not at a photo shoot, in a meeting or at my computer, I can be spotted around New York soaking in the city with my family, at the park with my little ones, or hosting dinner parties with my husband at our loft in DUMBO.
My top 5 items for the little ones are:
speck iGuy iPad case – I have yet to find a better ipad case on the market for the little ones in your life. We've had ours for two years and it's gone from the Hamptons to Atlanta and even to the south of France! It's durable, easy to hold, and the little ones love it.
bugaboo bee stroller – this stroller has been one of our best investments. We love that it's small/narrow, but also is a little chariot – able to carry a lot underneath and we strap on a kickboard on the back for the little lady to stand on. It’s on its third year and still going strong.
honest diaper bundle – I love the honest products. As a creative, I appreciate their attention to detail in design and construction of all their products. I love that we're also supporting the greater good of the Earth. We're all about organic and all-natural whenever possible.
alex crafts Popsicle stick art – the little ones love all of the Alex Crafts kits. These are great for rainy days!
