Welcome to La Petite Magazine!

Thanks for joining us as we pioneer a new avenue of inspiration for you! We’re bubbling with excitement to share with you everything extraordinary for the little one in your life…including fashion, design, DIY projects, unforgettable stories, and other helpful ingredients to make your life even more rich!

Like the strokes of a paintbrush, our desire at La Petite is to inspire you to create on the canvas of motherhood. As we recall our childhoods, the most memorable of moments seem drenched in the smell of our grandmother’s perfume, in the bright colors of our favorite sundress, or in the nursery rhyme that we can still remember word for word…accompanied by the silly motions that were choreographed by our silly fathers. Now, we get to wear the hat of the beloved mum and the constructor of memories. Our desire is that you put on this hat (dare I say it, probably a ultra chic fedora hat) with the creativity, imagination, and inspiration of a master painter. It’s your life, make it beautiful!
