I was lucky enough to host Bijou’s Decadence Rouge for a bit and it was marvelous! It was a TRUE RED wrap. I have the hardest time finding the perfect red. Sometimes it’s more pink, sometimes it’s more orange. But Decadence Rouge was RED. It’s been dubbed the Harley Quinn wrap and you can definitely see why. As a bit of a comic book fan, I wish I could keep it for any future Comic Cons.


Decadence Rouge is a black double weft wrap. This double weave is glorious! It makes it feel like a nice marshmallow on your shoulders. It’s got that memory foam cush that I love for my heavy toddler. There is limited give, not much stretch — it is a bit on the dense side. Notably thicker, but that’s the double weave I was talking about. It is a solid wrap – I didn’t have to readjust Tot when he was up for a good amount of time. Rouge is a bit on the warm side because of this, as well.

I love wraps that are base -2, so I was excited to try out some of my “shorty” carries. One of my carries that I love to do is the torso wrap. That helps me figure out whether or not I need to constantly tighten or readjust. I didn’t have to at all, during our 45 minute weekly grocery shopping trip. The wrap is a little bit on the bulky side, but I can see it softening up with more use.


This wrap isn’t quite a workhorse wrap, pulls can happen with the weave. The dark colors do make me want to wear it everywhere though. I also don’t have to worry about it picking up dirt. Rouge is cotton, so I wouldn’t have any issues throwing her into the washer (but don’t forget to contact the company for specific washing directions!).

Rouge is grippy! The microtexture on this is spot on! The passes take a little bit of work to get into place, but a little shimmying here and there never hurt anyone. The texture is there, so the passes lock in once the carry is complete. My little loved running his hands back and forth on it. Rouge is currently retaining its shape, but I can see it getting floppier with more love.


I’m sad it’s gone, but I loved it when it was here. Rouge was available for preorder, which I wish I got in on.

  • Playing with this @heirloomcarrier has been so much fun. I haven’t played with dupioni before and it was so supportive. A little crunchy but I’ll take it with the ultimate support. ⁣

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣

The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • Checking out this bourette silk tester, Everdeen from @waywardwovens has been fun. I love checking out new fibers and seeing their wrap qualities. I’ll  have a more in-depth review on the blog later this week 💕⁣
