Personal Shopping for toddler-clients has never been top of the Mabelle Style list until the past year. Once I posted a few photos of my own toddler, who receives special treatment in the fashion department, I received some inquiries. The dress shown in this picture was a smocked green-print cotton dress purchased from the gift store at London Heritage Farm as a special present from her Grannie. I added a cool pair of trendy pink Converse. She currently has a staple supply of hair-bows for everyday to match her outfits.
We have often been stopped on walks where people compliment her fashion style. I’ll be honest, it’s a minimal multi-function wardrobe with some of the coolest pieces coming from Varage Sale (an app based in your area that you can consign products). Since having a baby, I’ve been asked numerous times to do a blog on the brands I love and where I shop. See below a list of my personal fave kids brands and why.
Tea Collection – TC carry an unique supply of fun prints! My favorite is the pj’s and leggings! They also have some cute prints on t-shirts and dresses.
LP Apparel – LPA has super cute t’s and hats! (Canadian too) Fits/sizes are on the smaller side.
Posh & Cozy – PC have the cutest graphic sweatshirts.
Petunia & Buster – PB carry my favorite harem pants, the prints are adorable. Local too!
Noppies – Overall, some cute fashionable pieces.
Mini Mioche – This brand is an all time fave! Fabric is organic and their clothes are made in Canada. Not only are the clothes perfect basics, they also have the coolest kicks like Vans & Adidas.
Childhoods Clothing – The products I favor are the camo prints and the very soft fabrics! Rompers are super cute as well. They are a bit pricey with the dollar exchange but they use domestic manufacturers.
Portage and Main – PM carry fun and creative graphic t’s. Canadian brand!
Whistle & Flute – Cutest Prints! From sushi to cotton candy. Local Brand!
Aloha Kai – AK offer the coolest hats for kids. If you going to Hawaii you must shop this brand first for the perfect photo opp outfit. Local Brand!
Zara Kids – ZK carry a great supply of basics, cardigans, as well as some fun fashion pieces. This is an easy site to shop online and their prices are pretty good. I purchased a down coat last winter for $35 and it looks like it will fit through this winter!
H&M – Great prices and their looks are cute! I bought a lot from H&M. It is easiest to shop online for correct sizes. The conscious line is my favourite for basic rompers, onesies and layering pieces. Also, H&M has a good variety of hats for the little ones. (Fits big)
Gap Toddlers – This store has the best sales! You never have to pay full price. I always purchase her skinny jeans/jeggings here.
Carters – Best price for cute onesie packs! They also have three piece outfits that come with a fun printed fleece jackets. (Perfect for Vancouver weather.)
Minimoc – From age 1-2, my baby lived in the soft sole mocs. (Gray, Pink & Cream colour.) I have not tried their sneakers yet. Local brand!
Converse – Because who doesn’t love Converse? It’s pretty fun to have matching shoes with your kids isn’t it? Well i’m sure not for much longer.
Native Shoes – A popular shoe company for both kids and adults. My daughter is obsessed with her Natives. I got her first pair on Varage for $8 in mint condition. They are comfy and practical in so many ways. Local brand!
Adidas – Another fave sneaker brand in lots of colours that you can have matching shoes!
