Summer Bobux are here!

We love Bobux and know that you Mamas do too, so we were super excited when we received these new styles for summer. We carry Bobux to fit babies and toddlers from 3 months to 21 months. They are great for beginner walkers because they are easy to put on and they stay put!


All styles are made from soft leather with suede soles for slip resistance, which makes them  ideal for developing feet. Bobux shoes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association. Stop by soon to check out all our fabulous summer styles!





Look of the Month: June

June is here, and it finally feels like summer! Between BBQs, graduation parties and end-of-year concerts, this month is chock full of opportunities to showcase your warm weather wardrobe. This month’s model, the lovely Lucy, graciously showed off several summery selections.

Lucy’s first look works perfectly for any kind of summer celebration, or could be dressed down for a regular day. Both the seersucker dress (Polo Ralph Lauren, size 12, $10.95) and flip flops (Teva, $20.00, size 5) are classic pieces guaranteed to become staples in any wardrobe. A light scarf ($12.00) adds just an extra touch of glam, plus some protection in case of a summer breeze.


Lucy looks effortlessly cool in a black lace Xhilaration tank (size 9/10, $2.25) and a floral high-low skirt (size 12, $5.95.)  Lucy’s Nine West boots are her own, but her cool shades could be yours at the Goose for $7.00.







Lucy shows off one last outfit as a sample of what summer has to offer! This casual pairing of Zara corduroy shorts (size 9/10, $6.95) and a Gap tank top (size 9/10, $2.50) looks polished with the added Zara cardigan (size 9/10, $6.50.)  With this many great things to wear, she’s definitely ready for an endless summer.


Stop by the Goose and see what summer styles might be in store for you and your little ones.

Look of the Month: May

Ah, the merry month of May! This month’s model, Alice, once she’d finished counting impossible things and having breakfast, stopped by the store to show off some post-winter whimsy.  Her floral dress (Liberty of London, size 24 months, $6.95) pairs perfectly with an Old Navy chartreuse cardigan (size 2, $5.95) and pink patterned legwarmers ($2.49.) She’s prepared for rain or shine with an iPlay umbrella (or parasol!) in green ($16.00) and Hatley rain boots previously purchased from the Goose.

If a spring shower does begin to sprinkle, Alice is ready with an H&M rain coat (size 18 months, $4.95) and mischievous smirk (model’s own.)

May your May be full of floral fashion and Alice-esque attitude. See you at the Goose!

Look of the Month: April

It seems like Spring may have finally sprung! Birdies are chirping, plants are peeping out of the ground, and the sun is making regular appearances. Warmer weather inspires utter glee in many of us at the Goose, and our April model captures the feeling perfectly:

This is Ananda. His giant grin goes perfectly with the most effusive sweatshirt we’ve ever seen (FrogPrince, size 6, $7.95) which is emblazoned with the words “WEATHER SUN BOY WATER TASTES HOLIDAY” on the front and the words “PRINCE Care U” on the hood. We don’t totally get it, but we definitely love it, especially paired with plaid-cuffed jeans by Blurred (size 6, $7.95) and aqua KDs (Nike, size 1, $8.95.)

Underneath it all, Ananda rocks a tee (size 6, Carter‘s, $2.95) that tells how we’re all hoping to spend this season — hangin’ with our peeps!

Come kick your Spring into gear with a stop at the Goose.


Look of the Month: March

So, what’s a fashionista to wear in March?! This month is supposed to be in like a lion and out like a lamb, but here in Ithaca, it’s more like lamb ..  then lion … then giant-roving-pack-of-lions-tigers-and-bears! Luckily, we have this month’s model, Leona, to show us how a little creativity can help keep your wardrobe weather-appropriate.

Leona’s outfit centers around her sparkly Cherokee top (size 7/8, $4.50)  paired with Ralph Lauren tweed leggings (size 6, $5.50) and size 2 ankle boots by Tuffrider ($9.95.) She gets extra warmth from her Uniqlo heatec tee ($4.25,) Gap cream coat (size 8, $11.50) and Italian wool hat ($2.00.)

Once the weather finally warms up, Leona just swaps out her layers for Gap kids sparkle dot shorts (size 7, $5.50), a leather belt (Peace sign buckle not visible, $1.50) and European leather sandals (size 13, $9.95.)


You too can survive this month as fashionably as Leona. Just stop by the Goose for more styles that transcend seasons!
