The next big fashion designer: your kid

The greatest thing about kid’s fashion is not only can kids get away with being whimsical but they can make statements that adults can’t necessarily make.  My daughter has a tutu skirt that she pairs with neon-green-polka-dotted leggings.  Enough said? If your kid wants to DIY in the clothing department, here’s a really wonderful new option. My Milk and Hunny designed a t-shirt for Petite Parade’s Vogue Kids Fashion Week in a collaboration with the non-profit organization Free Arts NYC, which offers educational arts and mentoring program to underserved kids. Grab this cute tee, and your own kids can...

Getting creative with kids clothes. And chalk.

We have reached the maximum level of licensed- character and logo tees in our household. Granted, the number is not all that high–our kids are lots of things, but “miniature billboards” doesn’t exactly top the list–but still. We are at capacity. So how excited was I to find a T-shirt that they could truly make their own? We first discovered the Chalkboard Tee by Class Attire a few years back, and were instantly smitten. Now, the company has debuted even more chalkboard tee styles to choose from. The 100% cotton, made-in-the-U.S. tee comes in 18 adorable designs–I love the frame,...

Putting your toddler on the map (er, the map on your toddler)

When I lived in New York City, pre-kids, I always imagined that I’d someday stroll the streets with my theoretical future babies. We’d meet other mini-Manhattanites in Riverside Park, hit Mister Softee for a cone, head downtown to the South Street Seaport Museum, and life would all be so very grand.  But I ended up moving out of the city–way out of the city–a few years before the kids actually materialized. But you know what? Even though my kids aren’t in New York, that doesn’t mean that New York can’t be on them. Or Portland or Paris or Miami...

Print your own Super Bowl championship shirts, right from home

No matter what the outcome of today’s game (go New England!), I hope my kids see a game that reflects the best in sportsmanship (beat the Giants!) and a commitment to trying really hard (whoo! Tom Brady!). Oh, and I may care a little bit about who wins. Which is why I’ve got my eye on a super-cute printable, iron-on image that my kids could wear with pride if (when?) their team wins the big game. And, yeah, there’s one for that other team too. Love Party Printables has a whole roster of cartoon kids holding a little banner for...

Penguin Love

2012 may be the year of the dragon, but the penguin still needs some attention. And  just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re found one of the cutest ever ways for a baby to wear his love for penguins–or his love for love–on his chest. [don’t miss a limited time discount after the jump] I love the simplicity, the attention to detail, and the yummy organic cotton of this Penguin Love shirt. Plus, it is available as a onesie for even the tiniest lover. It’s all of the fun of a black tie affair without the fuss. -Eva Penguin...

Hit me with your best 80s tee

When my kids were little, I was constantly on the lookout for cool kids tees–something a little different.If you’ve got a thing for rock-inspired tees for your toddler, I’ve got the answer: Little Trendstar. The shirts are clever without being snarky, sweet without being saccharine, and the colors and graphics are fantastic. And as an extra bonus, Little Trendstar’s line is loaded with 80’s references, and who’s not a sucker for those? The Benatar tee (at right) is a perfect combination of punk and princess, without being too much of either. I also really like the Beat Goes On...

Beauty and the bike

Once upon a time, we fell in love with a pink t-shirt of a princess riding a T-Rex. Guess what? Now she’s riding a hog. Forget bad to the bone–she’s bad to the bow. (Because her pigtails have bows, of course.) Our pals at Jusami have struck gold again with the adorable Chopper Girl shirt that proves princesses don’t necessarily need towers or unicorns or princely rescue. This girl just needs her trusty motorcycle (and helmet!), and it’s time for adventure. We love Jusami not only because their designs are delish, but also because their shirts are of super-soft...

Shirts for books

I believe in the essential power of reading–my kids have the stuffed bookcases to prove it. But not every kid does. So I love the idea of this website that lets you buy an amazingly cute, supersoft, combed-cotton T-shirt to get more books in the hands of little ones who don’t have access to them. Did I mention amazingly cute? [don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!] I can’t get over this StoryTee from the website, OffOurChests. I mean, “Not Photoshopped”–how perfect a statement for our naturally adorable kids in this digitally-enhanced age. The best part: for every StoryTee you...

Lately Lily – World travelers R Us

I don’t have many strong beliefs but one thing I feel very passionately about is travel. We have just this one world provided to us and I believe it is our responsibility as global citizens to get to know it a bit beyond our own backyards. I fully plan on showing my daughter as much of the world as I am able and encouraging her to go out and explore on her own…. but she’s 2. So for now, we’ll start the global education at home with this amazing site.  I was so thrilled with the discovery of the...

Editors Best of 2011: The coolest boys clothes and accessories

We found so many cool boys’ clothes this year, it may be the first year we’ve given boys’ clothes their own category! Enjoy some of these awesome editors’ picks, putting to rest the notion that only girls get the good shopping. Red 21 Boys Kristen: If there’s a piece that juxtaposes classic lines with modern style, it’s this rockin’ skull jacket from Red 21 Boys (at top). I’m always impressed with the quality of their clothes, which means years not weeks of washes and wear. Black Kite kids’ shirts Kristen: In the sea of blue and white (or some...

Great shirts for stylish dreamers, wanderers, and do-gooders

It should always be a joy to do a little online shopping, especially when you’re hoping to see your money do a little good in the world. That’s why Jedidiah is so nice. Every one of their lovely adult shirts and accessories you buy contributes to a worthy cause. This season, a portion of all proceeds from sales goes to StandUp for Kids to help homeless teenagers and at-risk youth. Jedidiah recently raised over $24,000 for their previous charity, Amor, including building two houses and stocking a food pantry in Tijuana–so this is serious business. What do I love...

It’s time to raise the curtain on the coolest Muppets items

We headed off to see The Muppets this past weekend, both for the nostalgia and to introduce my kids to the beloved characters of my younger years. And while I believe that much of this movie would be lost on kids younger than grade school, my older kids were delighted with the music and characters and are now infected with Muppet Mania. But before you head out and get bombarded with all the licensed merchandise this movie will spawn, take a look at some of the coolest Muppet items we’ve found. –Christina The iconic Adidas sneaker (also featured in...

A totally non-ironic, non-cynical, totally happy tee

In a field of ironic, cynical tees for kids (homework sucks, anyone?) I was kind of glad to stumble across this one. Reading simply Today Is the Best Day Ever in big bold type of the FRANKIE SAYS RELAX variety, I could totally see an older kid wearing this for a birthday tee, a graduation ceremony or, come to think of it… in a totally ironic “today sucks” kind of manner. Depends on your kid I guess. The good part is that it comes in big kid sizes. So you can get one for yourself. Who knows, maybe if...

This mummy is yummy

My kids won’t even go into the basement by themselves, so let’s just say we do Halloween Lite around here. For our kinder, gentler Halloween, I’ve found a tee shirt from CMP favorite Threadless that would fit in just fine to our version of the spookiest of holidays. My kids would eat up (heh) Ramen’ses Return tee shirt.The undead has never looked cuter as it takes off from the bowl. Let’s just hope my kids don’t try to recreate it with their next bowl of noodles. Now, that would be scary. –Christina Ge this hilarious  kids mummy t-shirt for...

Sibling Pride

When new babies make their grand entrances, their bigger siblings can sometimes feel the shaft. It’s important to include them in welcoming the new addition–or, you can do what I did and have them so close together the older one doesn’t know what hit him. (Not recommended). I am loving this Big Brother tee from one of my favorite ever labels, City Threads. It’s got a super vintage collegiate style, makign it so much cooler than some of the goofy version out there. This one says: “I rock. I’m proud. And it’s still all about me.” Party on, my...

The twin bone’s connected to the cute bone

Let’s face it: If Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter had twins, they would look just like this, and Johnny Depp would give them a set of onesies like this at their Beetlejuice-themed baby shower. The Skeleton Love Kids organic shirt from Mimosa is based on an illustration by Holly Cruise and offers twice the charm of shirts featuring a single skeleton–and that’s a guarantee. Two happy little skeletons share a flaming heart while frolicking under a banner of hearts carried by two flying crows. In short, it’s perfectly spooktacular and adorkably hip, just in time for Halloween. But...

Are you t-shirt obsessed and time-starved? Join the club.

Spending time shopping for myself is basically a joke with two kids under the age of three, but it’s certainly nice to receive a little fashion treat every month in the mail. And that’s just why I joined StyleMint, the newish online, members-only club for T-shirts from fashion arbiters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I never thought I was the type to subscribe to a monthly retail club, but StyleMint has definitely changed my mind. It’s pretty straightforward–you answer some questions about your personal style and which kinds of brands you prefer (i.e. if you need retail therapy, do you...

Baby, you’re a star

I’ve loved the spectacularly gorgeous, understated kids wear from Shirin NYC since first discovering them a few years ago. This is the kind of clothing I spot in a boutique, and the second I touch the silky cotton, I (attempt to) start justifying the splurge. Now I’ve got the same feeling all over again, having seen the new fall/winter line for kids. Bonus: Boys and babies can get in on this year’s styles too. I’m wary of too much glitz on kids, but the new foil print tees add a touch of metallic to their designs in a truly...

Invasion of the moustaches!

I’ve said before that the moustache is the hipster icon of 2011. And now, it’s hitting the world of kids and baby clothes too, courtesy of one very popular designer. [don’t miss a special offer after the jump] The Stella McCartney Kids collection for fall 2011 includes some hilarious tees like this moustached deer shirt, that’s made of organic cotton and features a glow-in-the-dark applique. How exactly something that glows in the dark is organic I’m not sure, but I’ll take their word for it. If you prefer your moustaches more Groucho-like, you can also find one on this...

Smart girl tee shirts – smart mama approved

This morning, my social media streams were in an uproar about a tee for tween girls that declared “I’m too pretty to do homework…so my brother has to do it for me.” I can’t begin to tell you the number of things wrong with that message; but then, you already know them all. Over the years, Kristen and I have been excited to feature clothing that promotes positive messages about our daughters. Here, just a few of our favorites. –Liz SATees (above) show off your little kid’s knowledge–or future knowledge–of big words. Grab your daughter that tee that says...
