12 Things You Didn't Know About Kourtney Kardashian

Mar 25 2014 - 10:36am

With three kids between them, it really is no surprise that the latest expansion of the Kardashian empire is a foray into baby clothes. But given some of the — how do we put this — slightly outrageous fashion choices Kourtney, Khloé, and Kim Kardashian [1] have worn, we've been more than pleasantly surprised with just how cute the Kardashian Kids collection really is [2]! Available exclusively at Babies "R" Us stores [3], the collection is filled with sweetly sophisticated little-girl pieces in a number of neutral colors and sweet patterns (think stars, butterflies, and even a subtle leopard print), all priced under $30.

We joined the collection's lead designer, eldest sister Kourtney, for a little tea party in NYC yesterday, where the mom of two — Mason, 4, and Penelope, 1 — spilled the beans on which sister picked out which designs (Khloé "inspired our leopard print and she actually chose the exact print because she's really particular when it comes to leopard," Kim "loves really neutral stuff, I would say for North," and Kourtney loves the "butterfly little outfit"), how involved the men in their lives — Kourtney's boyfriend is Scott Disick and Kim is engaged to Kanye West [4] — were in the designs ("The boys don't get involved in our design meetings"), and what comes next for them ("I would love to do toddler next. We read a lot of social media comments and one thing people have been asking for is bigger sizes and for boys. So, I think those are the two things we'd love to do next."), among some other fun details.

Read on for 12 things you probably didn't know about the star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians!

She Worked in Her Grandma's Clothing Store

Kourtney had experience in the children's clothing world prior to launching her own kids' clothing collection. She said, "My grandmother had a kids' clothing store for over 30 years in La Jolla called Shannon and Company. My sisters and I used to go there and work in the Summers and stuff. Then my mom and I had a kids' clothing store called Smooch that we had for like five or six years and I did all the buying for that before I had kids."

She Has a Favorite Outfit in the New Kardashian Kids Collection

"My favorite piece is the . . . butterfly little outfit [5] ($30), which I think [Penelope] would probably wear the most. I just love it. I love that style on her. I also like [that] it's two pieces and I think you can separate them and put them with different items also. Like maybe little jean cutoffs with the top or a white little boho blouse with the little shorts."

She's Practical About Kids' Clothes

"I used to just buy the craziest things for the store that were so much fun but were not the most practical. And now that's kind of how we came up with our collection, but I'm really passionate about it."

She Recycles Mason's Clothes For Penelope

"With the clothes aspect . . . I've kept a lot of Mason's clothes. I'll even use them on Penelope as well, like little blazers, loafers, and some of his pants, even like a full suit and do a menswear like Saint Laurent look. I mean it's totally different obviously dressing them both, but I love when she wears his pajamas. It's just those pieces that are so special that it's nice to be able to share."

She's Not Allowed to Have a Say in Her Son's Outfits

"My son definitely has an opinion on what to wear. He gets himself dressed every day and likes to come out and show us his outfit, and we're not allowed to have a say in any of it."

Her Fiancé Isn't Into Kids in Bikinis

"Yeah, [Scott] doesn't really have an opinion on the girls' stuff, except he's not into bikinis for little girls. But I am!"

She's Over the Color Black

"I don't know. I'm into pastels, as you can tell, and I'm so excited because I get so over the color black by the time Spring comes around. I always love floral prints for little girls and different prints, so I always love mixing prints and that's a trend so probably just that."

Her Family Thinks She's Crazy For Sleeping With Her Kids

"They definitely, I'm sure, all think are insane in my family for having them in the bed and breastfeeding for a long time, or whatever. I could care less."

She Likes to Read Parenting Books

"I think that my [parenting] style is probably similar — like I do the same kind of things with both kids, but I think I'm always trying to evolve also. I like to read parenting books and things like that."

She Didn't Plan on Becoming an Attachment Parent

"It just kind of grew. I didn't plan it. I wasn't reading attachment-parenting books before. I think it's just what came naturally to me. Even with different kids I think it's different what each kid needs, something different."

She Loves Matching Her Daughter

"I'm totally down for matching outfits. My mom always used to match us. I think it's really cute and it helps me get dressed too, even if it's not exactly matching. If I know Penelope is wearing black jeans it'll help me. I'll be like, 'I'll throw on my black jeans!' It makes everything go quicker and it's difficult enough to get everyone ready and out the door — so I just use that as a guide of what they're wearing."

She's Open to Having More Children

"I'm so busy right now, but I'm always . . . I don't know. It's in God's hands. But little tiny clothes are the cutest thing in the world, and it does make it sound [good] when they just keep getting bigger and bigger."
