It's impossible to grow up without some parental embarrassment, intentional (thanks for showing up to school in a clown wig, Mom!) or not (no Dad, it isn't normal to write on my Facebook wall that many times). But that may not be the case with Brit-turned-Brooklynite, Victoria Sullivan, a designer, an online children's-decor-store owner of White Rabbit England, and style-savvy mother to Charlie, 8, and Florence, 11. We have a hard time imagining her as anything but the "cool mom," always.

Oh, and while we were there, we asked Sullivan to model her equally chilled-out chic wardrobe pieces and share her tips for decor on a dime, raising kids in the city, and other ma-jor mum conundrums. Sure, staying on top of design work, a store, a beautiful home, a big-time art-director hubbie, and two energetic kids might sound like a lot, but that's why we call Victoria Supermom.
