Mini Mod Sessions for you, your babies, hubby…whoever!

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to get squeezed in for a very (ya’ll know me) last minute photo session for the boys with a very talented yet somewhat undiscovered photographer by the name of Toni Elmer. When I saw her work, I was so impressed and couldn’t wait for her to photograph my Brady and Grant! In just over an hour, she captured some amazing shots of my boys! I love love love her clean and colorful urban style. Well if you don’t have an hour and just want to get some great professional photos without a big sitting fee, here’s your chance!

This Saturday, May 30th at the Plano store from 10am to 2pm, Toni will be offering Mini Mod Sessions for you, your babies, hubby…whoever! For 15 minutes, she will take some great shots of you and you get to see proofs right there! She is also offering multiple packages for $100! If any of you have had professional photos taken and printed for you, you know that most charge more than 100 bucks just for the sitting fee…no pics included! She really is fantastic! Young, fresh and modern photography in short 15 minutes!Urban Photo Mini Mod Event at Pickles & Ice Cream

 There is a $25.00 deposit to hold your space, since there’s only 16, but it’s goes towards your photo package! This is Pickles’ first photo session event and I believe it’s Toni’s first too! And we’re excited to see how it all turns out! I mean really, if you’ve wanted to capture your pregnancy professionally but have been scared of the moolah it would cost, this really is the perfect opportunity to get them done! 

To book your spot, call the Plano location at 972.781.1898 today! Spots are filling up!

Now in Maternity…the Jimmy Jimmy Boyfriend jeans from Paige


Just now available for maternity, the Jimmy Jimmy Boyfriend jean from Paige Premium Denim is finally here! A bestseller in the regular women’s line, the Jimmy Jimmy is selling out in maternity too. Aside from the cool distressed and beat-up condition of the actual denim, the Rebel wash is knitty soft and unbelievably stretchy! Produced with the Westbourne maternity waistband treatment, the Jimmy’s have a completely finished front and hidden elastic for tightening or loosening for all the stages of pregnancy. We also love that the jeans come cuffed but can be rolled down for a full-length jean. Great to wear in the summer and transition into Fall! Our rounder-bottomed mommies have loved these jeans because they can wear the Jimmy as a regular jean instead of the looser and more relaxed look of Boyfriend cut.

Our mommies are buying their pre-pregnancy size in these jeans. If the jeans are a little looser in the early stages, that’s ok because that’s the way they are designed to look. When the same mommy gets bigger in the later stages, the jeans will just fit less and less boyfriendy and more like a regular pair of jeans. You will really feel like your are wearing your boyfriend’s jeans! They really are THAT comfortable! The celebs are wearing them cuffed and down….and we know how tall their denim stack is to choose from!

Her First Mother’s Day

If your wife, fave friend, or sassy sister is pregnant, we’ve hand-selected some great gift items  that will not only make them happy but fill a need too! With all the time that getting-ready-for-baby takes up, we thought the items we picked would not only make our expecting mommies-to-be feel special but also check something off that list. But if you want them to take their mind off of all the to-do’s and just enjoy their first Mother’s Day, we’ve also included some no-brainers dresses and fun tops that have sold extremely well…and they rarely get returned (now THIS is the best indicator of a great-fitting apparel item to us here at the Dotcom!)  We're also adding a Free Pickles & Ice Cream Tee Shirt to all orders of $75 or more through Sunday May 9th.

We love our mommies and thank every one of them(or you) that have given us a chance to make them feel special during their pregnancy. We hope all of you have a wonderful Mother’s Day. As a mom myself, I can honestly say that nothing changes your life (for the better, of course) than having your bab(ies) call you Mommy.
