Now that my second kid has turned 1, the morning gets even crazier with 2 toddlers! 👶🏻 👶🏻 Like most mothers, self care goes out the door first for the sake of time when you have children. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So I am hoping to add to my morning a little brief reading (novel) with a cup of joe to get all the screaming out of my head before diving into the day. 📚 ☕️ What is your coping ritual? Do you have one? Can you share? Would love to hear. 👂 #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #verticallychallenged #selfcarefirst #wildwoodbook #wellnessforlife #momlifebalance

I cannot believe this little guy turned 1 year old yesterday! 🎂 He is hands down one of my favorite designs, cut and sewn locally from my SF belly via C-section by @kpthrive 🤰🏻Just like all of my SF-manufactured products (sans the C-section part, thank goodness). 😜 #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #verticallychallenged #csectionbelly #csectionbaby #madeinsf #madeinsanfrancisco #sfmade #usmade #madeinusa

Whenever I take a trip and force myself to just be presence, I come away with better perceptive about life and richer ideas for my designs. 🎒 While I am sad that our summer family trip is coming to an end —tomorrow, hubby goes back to work, and kids go back to preschool/daycare — it’s time for me to get back to finishing up my new designs, but with even more energy, presence and kinder spirit; like my little one meeting her 4-day old fluffy friend (Gravestine Apple Festival) or seeing a ferries wheel (Sonoma County Fair) for the first time. 🐥🎡 I can’t wait to show you, my fellow petite women, what I have been cooking up in my studio. 🤹🏻‍♀️ #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #fallfestival #sonomacountyfair

Enjoying my very late “morning” cuppa with a drop of Thieves essential oil to help give me a weekend boost, after a morning of cleaning the house and it feels SO good! Bit of a late spring clean but I love having a clean (half) organised house. 🏡

Yesterday was #NationalBookLoversDay Having been off the grid the past 4 days camping, I was able to spend some quality time with my kids and revisited Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss. 🎓 So much life gems and wisdom encapsulated in such simple story. Every time when I REALLY read it, it gives me goosebumps and makes me wonder about choices I make. 📚 What is your all time favorite read? Do tell! ⭐️ #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #verticallychallenged #drseuss #ohtheplacesyoullgo

Loving August so far, I have such a good feeling about this month, good things are going to happen! Then we are off to my favourite place in the world for 2 weeks on the 1st of September!

I hope you will know kindness, to those who aren’t always kind towards you. I hope you will know courage, to stand up for what you believe in no matter who tries to make you doubt it. I hope you know love, for those who love you and for those who need love to become better people. I hope you know patience, for this is virtue. I hope you know yourself, and stand tall in who you are, what you believe in and how you feel. I hope you always know how loved you are, never doubt it, never question it, just feel it everyday of your precious life. 💜

Here’s a friendly reminder to just be HERE. Life comes at us faster than ever. Tomorrow has enough worry of its own and your life won’t be a second longer for taking your focus off of today. ⏰ I like to reset my mind on the present with a lunch surrounded by some kind of nature. Lucky me. This week, I am gonna have a lot of that from our family camping trip in the wine country - kids, husband, sanity. Checked! ⛺️🍷 What’s your favorite for staying in the moment?

It’s been 7 months since we did our last one of these and I wanted to do it at 18...but life. So here you are, my darling Kovah Willow, 19 months old, walking, trying to run, kissing, hugging (everything) and growing too fast for my heart to take. You’re still in some 6-9 clothes but mostly in 9-12months now. We got your first pair of actual shoes last months and you already try to put them on yourself. You LOVE the water which makes Dada and I so happy! Your favourite song is still Row Row Row Your Boat. You love to help me work 😬 but you’re so gentle and push the needle into the fabric and out again then give me the biggest smile like you’re so proud of your work. You’re still the most gentle, patient and loving soul. You adore babies (real and not), you’re so loving. You’re still a little book worm, your favourite is still Dear Zoo. You’re on oat milk now but you still drink 15oz before bed 🙈 I’m loving the sweet little girl you’re becoming I just wish I could press pause some days. These moments will become memories before I know it but every second is so treasured with you. (Also you had your first fall yesterday hence your precious lip is all grazed up, please don’t make it a habit 😭 it hurt my heart so much...I’m aware this is unrealistic 🙈) I love you darling girl 💛

Today we jumped in field of sunflowers and picked wonderfully smelling lavender to fill our paper bags. We cuddled close in our sling that we wore here a year ago when Kovah was 7 months old and it honestly made me so emotional. There are some seriously funny and magical photos from today so I’ll be sharing them on the blog soon! But for now here’s my sweet girl making me smell the lavender she picked 😍💜

I am over the moon 🌙 One of my business goals is to offer clothes that my petite women customers can dress up and down easily to fit their multi-faceted and always on-the-go life style. 💃🏻 💃🏻💃🏻 So when I received a testimonial like this one, it really reminds me to keep doing the thing I love - helping my customers to look and feel good regardless of their height. Period! 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩 So if you don’t mind, please tell me about your “clothes” challenges and what you’d love to see. I’d love to hear what delights and frustrates you when you go shopping!🛒 👖 #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #verticallychallenged

By all means necessary! That’s at least what I tried when my kids have taken over my studio...drafting pattern on dining table right before dinner takes over... ✍🏼 And that time pressure turned me into a machine!

Woken up with a fabulous headache today and feeling rather sick so it’s a slow day in our house. Koko won’t leave my side and keeps hugging me so I think she knows mama isn’t feeling 100% so we’ve got a movie on already and counting down until nap time where I can hopefully get some sleep too.🙈 however rough I am feeling I’m super grateful for my sweet girl who just stuffed her unicorn in my lap and smiled at me 😍

Kovah’s kisses are sometimes pretty full on, but my brother caught one on camera and it’ll forever be hilarious! This was after her dipped her finger in my gin and then put it in her mouth...maybe she’s a lightweight like her mama but at least she’s a lover not a fighter 😂

What is your favorite thing to share? For me, it's bloopers of my video making. 🎥 Growing up in a family video rental, I watched tones of movies. Bloopers were the parts. They made me laugh without fail while coming from the real part of the actors and actresses. 😂 So that’s what I am sharing today - a blooper from behind the scene of making this video about how to figure out your inseam. 🤪 BTW, that's the one body measurement that petite women ought to remember when shopping for pants or jumpsuits. It saves me so much time from trying out those that are too long! ⏰ You can watch this short 3 min video on IGTV. Click the IGTV Icon on profile. 🤳🏼 More petite style tips on the blog.

For petite women under 5’5”, you know the struggle is real when it comes to finding pants that don't mop the floor! But you can actually save time (and hassle) shopping if you know your inseam. I am sharing a quick "how-to" so you can measure your inseam even with no help! Just grab a pair of your favorite yoga pants (or leggings) and a measuring tape. Enjoy!

I’ve been pouring my heart into the making of this new instructional video because I know how incredibly clumsy it is to measure my inseam when I have no one around to help me hold the tape! 🤦🏻‍♀️ So spare yourself from feeling like an idiot and frustrated like yours truly, go watch this 3 min demo. 🤳🏼 To watch, select direct link [VIDEO] MEASURING INSEAM WITH NO HELP inside profile (linktr.ee) link. 🛍 BTW, remembering your inseam is super handy when you go pant shopping! If you don’t know what is inseam. Don’t worry. Watch the video and it will be all clear. 🤪 Ok, go! When you are done measuring, DM or comment to tell me your inseam. I wanna hear from you, seriously! 👖 #madeirabrand #yogapants #leggings #petitestyldtips #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #inseam #shortinseam #howtovideo #howtovideos #bodymeasurements

When you are petite (i.e. under 5’5”), the struggle of finding a pants or jumpsuit that fit is real. Usually pants become mops for me. 👖 But after my conversations with petite friends and customers, I realize that there is one critical body measurement would totally help them find pants that fit their height quicker. But they can’t usually recite this number off top of their head when they go shopping. And that number is their inseam! 🙈 The beauty about inseam is that it doesn't change once you are pretty much a grown up. And more retailers are listing their inseam info on the product page, which actually can be high a time saver! ⏰ So my friend, tell me. Do you know your inseam? If you don’t, no biggie! I’ve got you covered. 🎬 I just recorded this short demo for you. All you need is a pair of yoga pants (or leggings) and a measuring tape. You will find your inseam in < than 2 min, all without the help of another human being! 📺 To watch the video, click profile link and select [VIDEO] MEASURING INSEAM WITH NO HELP (3 MIN). 💁🏻‍♀️ When you are done, I would love to hear what your inseam is in the comments! . #madeirabrand #petitestyldtips #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall #inseam #shortinseam #howtovideo #howtovideos

This girl knows. 🙌🏻 I feel really off today so far, really stressed out which is prettyunlike me so I’m doing my best to calm things down inside while birdie girl naps(guess how many @slumberkins there are under her😂) . I had some pretty crazy nightmares too last night so maybe that’s got me a little on edge. Anyone else find themselves struggling through this Monday? 🤪

“Your baby is too old to be in there!” She’s never too old to be held close by her mama. 🙌🏻 “You hold your baby too much let her walk” You can never hold someone too much, or love someone too much, or comfort someone too much. 💜 “She’ll get too attached to you if you keep her in a sling” How can she ever be too attached to me? We were separated for 3 days when she was born, 3 whole agonising days, I always want us to be attached as close as we can be since those days we didn’t have eachother comfort. 🤱🏼 These moments, these minutes, they get further apart so when she wants ups, she’s teething, she’s ill and wants mama snugs, she will have them and we will love on every second! These slings are a blessing! 🌸🌿

Can I take the opportunity to introduce myself? I’ve seen new faces here and I want to say two things: Hello & Welcome! 💁🏻‍♀️ My name is Stephanie and I am the 5-feet-3-ish designer and #girlboss of @madeirabrand , who loves creating feminine and functional clothing for my fellow petite and short women to feel their greatest in their hectic everyday life (e.g. shorter hems, fits that flatter their short frames, etc.). 👣 Most weekends you’ll find me hanging out with my 2 kiddos at one of the SF playgrounds and grocery shopping at the Monterey Market (best grocery store ever!). 👩‍👧‍👦 But on the weekdays my favorite thing to do is wrapping my hands over my first cup of hot tea and breath, and discovering new things that I can incorporate into my designs and business. 🔦 Today, i am visiting the brand-new @shopify office in SF. So glad to meet the wonderful staff and other shopify store owners like @jennevierevillegas of @piratehappyhour 💀 (a fellow petite!) to share knowledge. I feel so lucky that they chose my city to open a space. Thank you, Shopify! 🍀 I’d be honored to connect with you, so leave a comment and let me know what you like to do with your free time! 💕 #madeirabrand #petitefashion #boutiquefashion #boutiqueclothing #petiteclothing #shortgirlfashion #shortgirlproblems #madeinsf #fivefootfour #fivefootthree #fivefoottwo #fivefootone #fivefoot #fivefeetfour #fivefeetthreeinches #fivefeettwo #fivefeetone #fivefeet #fivefeettall

Tell me, friend, what are you inspired by? I'm always inspired by other people’s work of love💙When I see creation that comes from a place of love, it makes my work better and my soul fulfilled. 🌸 So when I saw this beautiful dress created by @kneesocksandgoldilocks for her daughter, it brought out so many emotions at so many levels, and brought back childhood memories of wearing clothes handmade by my mom. 🤱🏻 I also fell in love with this blue super soft rayon fabric designed by Dana Willard @made_everyday of @artgalleryfabrics . I am so glad to finally feel it in my own hands! 🎁 Today, I am sharing my first “unboxing” video to show you this (and one other) fabric that I am going to make into my next collection for fellow petite women and short girls five-feet four and under. 📺 You can see how they drape and more about the inspirations for choosing these prints on IGTV —> click the IGTV icon on profile. 🤳🏼 If you want details about the fabrics, it’s on the blog ▶️ Just click profile’s linktr.ee link and selection [VIDEO] UNBOXING NEW FABRICS] 💬 P.S.

It’s really hard to remember sometimes that you aren’t just a mother. You are still your own person. I’m starting something for myself this month, something that will challenge me, push me, make me learn a whole load of amazing stuff and eventually be able to help others on the same journey and I’m so excited. I’m so excited to discover myself again and be a mama Kovah can really be proud of all while making our home a safer and more healthy place. I know this is all very cryptic but it’ll all become clear soon. I just can’t wait! 🌿

When you take a photo that you know will forever bring you joy and laughter😫😍. We’ve had a loooong morning, with an early wake up call and lots of whinging, we’ve been hanging around (literally) until this one got tired enough to go back to bed. But her giggle is the best thing in the world and honestly seconds after this photo was taken she fell asleep, with my hand behind her head and me leaning over her so she was in some kind of hammock. Never seen her fall asleep so fast but my goodness it melted my heart. From hysterical laughter to complete peace. However exhausted and run down I feel today, I’ll forever have a morning of sweet memories and laughter ringing in my ears. 🙌🏻🌿

I’ve been wanting to write this all day, but I’m glad I waited. I asked mike to send me the photos of when I was in hospital...I’ve never really been in a rush to look or have these as they are so raw for me even now, but I sent myself the photos and discovered ones I’d never seen of me and of Kovah 💔I have tears as I type this. The first photo is 3pm we’d been in hospital for about an hour and I’d just been moved into a room on my own, I was feeling fine just annoyed we were there once again. The second is 5 hours later after an aggressive magnesium pump to stop me having a stroke due to how high my blood pressure was and to help Kovah which had made me vomit from the pain. I’m also hooked up to a mag drip too and would be for the next 5 days, not to mention all the other things I’d been pumped full of. My brain had started to swell and soon I wouldn’t be able to communicate. Then I was rushed in for an emergency csection and Kovah was born at 11.55pm at 34 weeks. It honestly hurts me so much that I wasn’t there for her but the amazing nurses in NICU and her Dada were for the first 3 days of her life. If it weren’t for the amazing NHS doctors and nurses myself and Kovah wouldn’t be here today. They caught my severe Preeclampsia & HELLP syndrome just in time. They said if I’d stayed home that day we both wouldn’t be here. They saved our lives and for that there is nothing in the world that would be enough to show my gratitude. They do this every day like it’s nothing and they are honestly superhero’s. Happy 70th Anniversary to our incredible National Health Service, angels that walk this earth. 👩🏼‍⚕️💖👨🏼‍⚕️

Just feeling super grateful today. The people I’ve met, the things I’ve created, the chances I’ve been given since being a Mum have really changed me. Even though a lot of my support has been from sweet mamas all over the world, that I may never even meet or hug, I really believe they’ve made me a more loving and creative person. I pitched them an idea and they loved it and supported me with it and now I have a whole pre-order list to fill for my new embroidered hoops. Without this amazing community on here I wouldn’t be who I am as Mum and I’m honestly so lucky and blessed to be supported and loved in this way. My creativity is blooming and it’s all down to you wonderful people/mamas in this community.🌻

I cannot wait to go back to the fields of sunshine this year, last year this just felt so special to me. I love being surrounded by flowers it makes me feel so close to nature and appreciate what Mother Nature can do. Most of all I love being able to share it with the brightest flower there is, my Kovah Willow. 🌻

Nothing that fills my heart more than her little arms squeezing tight around my neck. Her hugs are what makes my life and I’m lucky enough that she cuddles me like this at least 10 times a day. 😍
