Grown Up Designers, Kiddie Sized

Cupcake Jenny

Walk into Mark Jacobs' and you'll spy the hustle and bustle of energetic shoppers snapping up the latest floral-print peasant blouses and signature thermal-style cashmere sweaters. Not a site that would necessarily shock you, except that these shoppers aren't the fashion forward Sex-and-the-City set, they're the kindergarten-aged tots of these chic women!

While designer fashion for children isn't anything new, there IS a huge trend in kiddie couture that's booming-- take-down styles by all of our fave grown-up designers! And everyone's jumping on the band wagon, and I mean everyone! Did you know that you can buy mommy-and-me Hudsons, Sevens, True Religion and Joe's? Or how about dressing little-miss-me in your favorite Juicy terry dress, only one-tenth the size? European high-fashion brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Chloé, Missoni and Marni all sell miniature versions of their adult ready-to-wear pieces. Even Galliano and Diesel are teaming up to launch a pint-sized collection.

While I'm not a big proponent of actually matching your child (even though it was the greatest thing to do with my best friends in the fifth grade!), I have to admit, that I love these mini styles! And while the price tags unfortunately don't get smaller even though the clothing does (Fred Segal sells Antik Denim, 7 for All Mankind and Rock & Republic jeans in toddler sizes for $150!) I say that if you can afford it, even if it's just a once in a while splurge, you'll love dressing your little one in her Hudson's just as much as you enjoy wearing them yourself!

Cute but short

Very cute dress. Bought for my 7mo. She has a longer torso so the dress was quite short. But sweet nonetheless

She will look like a rockstar!

These glasses along with the white flower ones were the hit of the baby shower, along with the cherry tootsie zip and teething ring! So proud to say that the Cupcake store resides I my hometown!

Teething Pleasing

Cute, soft and will do the job!

Just the best!

The Mama-to-Be swooned over this cherry ruffle footie zip. Baby not on planet earth yet, but guaranteeing she will be styling come October!

We Love Them! We now live up here & it is a unique way to say it came from us & the yr the Baby was born! We send these to friends & family all over the World! I just wish they had more size choices, all the time! But this also might be a reflection on their popularity!
