You are searching high and low to find some unique, cute (and affordable) clothes for your kids, but are left with the usual suspects. We found some off-the-beaten-path sites that have really original items you won’t see on every other toddler at the park.
Are you tired of shopping the same old sites for children’s clothing? Whether you are looking for a special occasion outfit, or just something cute for the playground, we found some great sites to bookmark.
Polkadot Patch Boutique
Marianne Mullen is the owner of Polkadot Patch Boutique. She had a difficult time finding unique, high-quality and comfortable clothing for her own daughters that was fun and whimsical. Polkadot Patch was created out of her desire to offer only the most unique clothing items for babies and children. Polkadot Patch is a family-run business that offers clothing, accessories and toys that have been hand-picked. They also offer organic and eco-friendly options, as well as fun and funky designs. We loved this Monster Kids funky big-eyed green monster shirt ($42) for boys and the Mallory May Madeline blue skort set ($42) for the girl in your life.
My Little Jules
My Little Jules is an online girls-only clothing boutique with all of the cutest brands in one place. They carry items from Persnickety Clothing, Mustard Pie, Little Joule, Ooh La La Couture, Jelly the Pug, Dollcake Clothing, Room Seven and more. My Little Jules was inspired by the owner’s daughter Julia, thus the name Little Jules. Little Jules and her mom have a passion for fashion, so obviously kids clothing seemed like a perfect fit. They feature hand-picked girl’s clothing items that they think you will love as much as they do. Dress your girl up in this Jelly the Pug Kokeshi Hannah dress ($40), and she will smile all day long. We also adore this Lemon Loves Lime ruffle skort in Daiquiri Green ($39), just because it looks comfy and fun.
Started by a New York City based entrepreneur with extensive fashion industry experience, Lollipop Moon not only carries designer labels like Baby Bella Maya, Mud Pie, Belle Ame and Swankie Blankie but also their own Lollipop Moon label T-shirts, tank tops and other original clothing items. Check out their birthday boutique section for adorable hats and other clothing designed especially for your birthday girl. Our favorite outfit for girls is this Isobella & Chloe Sophia turquoise set ($44). No baby boy should be without the Mr. Conservative Baby Creeper ($24).
This adorable site carries brands like Haute Baby, Baby Sara, Le Top, Giggle Moon baby, Isobella & Chloe, Mud Pie and Wes and Willy to name a few favorites. Gingersnaps Kids also has a retail store in Texas, which carries many of the adorable items on their site. From girl’s Miss Me jeans to adorable beanies for babies, Gingersnaps Kids has it all. Our favorite for girls is the Haute Baby Ditzy Damask tunic ($56), and you can’t beat this Wes and Willy Sunglass Fish tee ($18) for the boy on your list.
Dimples & Dandelions
A family-owned company started in 2004, Dimples & Dandelions sells the most adorable clothing and unique products available for children and babies. Their product offerings are continually updated to keep you coming back for something new. Many exclusive designs are made just for Dimples & Dandelions customers. They also have a retail shop in Texas. How cute is this Plaidly in love shirtzie ($46) for a little trend-setting boy? And this Sweet Heart Coral Swing dress ($48) would be sweet on any little girl.
Izzy and Ash
Izzy and Ash is a cute site with some of the most original clothing on the internet. Named after Isabela and Ashton — the two children of the owners —this shop offers infant and children’s clothing that is both fun and playful, like childhood should be. They are focused on quality and value, and offer the latest trends in designer infant and children’s clothing from both European and U.S. manufacturers. We love the Appaman boys bicycle tee ($14) for boys or this cute and sassy Deux par deux blue dazzling skirt ($52) for the girl you love.
