I’m a Cool Mom: Zoe Latta On Bringing Her Baby to Fashion Week
His Uppababy Vista Stroller or Tripp Trapp high chair are both great because they’re modular systems and can grow with the bebe (buy them used, they’re all over the place!) Finding a good baby consignment spot in NY and LA has been very helpful, as well as friends who have kids older and younger than yours to get the hand-me-down circle flowing. I have a group of moms (Alexa Karolinski, Joanna Aviellez, Zoe Ghertner, and Avena Gallagher) who just pass clothes and toys onto each other. Some of us share a Lovevery subscription.
What have you learned about yourself since becoming a mother?
There’s a little evil voice inside of me that is supercritical of my actions. She’s a real bitch, filled with a lot of doubt and judgments. Since being a mom, I realized that little sad person can go to hell—she’s wasting precious time and energy. I also wish everyone had to be a mom for a day because it’s so fucking hard and I wish I had had more compassion for mothers earlier in life.
How do you dress Joy?
Joy has no “type” of baby style. I think it goes without saying that his “lewks” are gender fluid. The real gems of his stash are hand-me-downs… little huipil dresses, sailor sets, miniature tracksuits, hand-knit space-dyed sweaters, a ’70s leather cardigan, things that I could never find if I were to search for them. He outgrows things quickly so it’s very precious and fleeting when something fits.
I’m not going to lie, I have been collecting baby clothes since I was a baby. I’m still a bit of a Pokémon master for Joy’s wardrobe but live by the rule that I can’t buy anything new for him. If he needs something, I try to find it on The RealReal, Depop (could have a better kids function!) eBay, Poshmark, Etsy, OfferUp, Craigslist. I’m probably blowing up my own spot here but Parachute Brooklyn is a dangerous addiction with vintage kid sales daily on Instagram.
