When we first discovered the limited-time indie design sale site Of A Kind, my first thought was get some kids stuff in there! And voila! My shopping hopes (for you…really) have been answered, as they embark on their first ever kids’ sale starting this morning, and we’ve got the exclusive scoop.

Log on at 10AM ET, and you’ll find a beautiful little dotted chambray dress from Emily McMaster of Mabo Kids in sizes 12 mo through 4/5.

(Yes, chambray. Because it seems this year, we’re not allowed to say “denim” anymore. Anyone else notice that?)

Is it cheap? Not exactly. But like the rest of the site, these are limited edition, US-made garments, stitched from natural fibers and supporting a small artist creating them all by hand. In fact, Emily take her inspiration from her own two little girls, Ruby and Mabel, who even contribute their own ideas for consideration.

I have always loved the idea of investing a little more in a few indie splurge pieces I can feel good about–although I do have the benefit of two daughters, and the guarantee of years of use.

This is the kind of easy dress your daughter can live in spring through fall. But if you love it, hurry–there are only 40 of these and they go fast. After that, you’ll have to shop Mabo Kids directly. Though not for the chambray dress. –Liz

Visit One of a Kind starting at 10AM Tuesday for the limited edition kids sale, and learn more about Mabo Kids on their website. Just for fun–also check out designer Emily McMaster’s film inspiration for her designs. It’s surprising!
