Do you know Tocoto Vintage?  If not, you need to check them out.  From Spain, they have been making the most adorable clothes for babies for a few years.  For the first time they have expanded their range to include clothes for 2 to 8 year olds and this new Autumn Winter collection is understated, stylish and has their signature vintage touch.  The clothes come in beautiful muted colours, soft fabrics with chic little details that look great but are also very cosy and comfy to wear for boy or girl.

I’m loving those charcoal grey ‘tomboy’ overalls because I think every little girl needs a little dose of tomboy style once in a while.  And also that grey sweater with the adorable ruffle trim.  Amongst all the charcoal is that pinky-plum colour and some very deep midnight blues all coming together to create a gorgeous colour palette for the Winter months ahead.  Even though I never look forward to the colder months, I can’t help but get excited about stylish Winter fashion like this.

Do you remember Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys?  I was a big fan of the Nancy Drew books and I remember my brother being crazy about The Hardy Boys.  I loved the spirit of adventure and what (at the time) seemed to be the most exciting mysteries ever.  I think I even wanted to be her at one stage!  Now, decades later this new Fall/Winter collection inspired by the whole Nancy Drew era has me smitten.

Looking at this collection, you can’t help but think spies and mysteries, detectives and top-secret missions from a by-gone era.  How fun is that for any little kid?  With a strong retro vibe and beautiful Autumnal colours, this latest collection is so playful and charming.  I love everyday clothes like these that allow children to pretend play and transport themselves in to their very own make believe world.

Inspired by their daughters obsession with spies and mysteries, this husband and wife team created this newest collection.  I’m a big fan of Misha Lulu already but this latest collection is my favourite!

I know I talk a lot about the Summer but if you lived in London you would know why.  We get so little sunshine over the year that when it does come, it’s reason enough to celebrate!  With all this glorious weather we’re enjoying I remembered a brand of clothes that seems to capture the very essence of Summer.  Their clothes and pictures make me dream of long, sunny days spent playing outdoors, getting wet in water fountains, picking flowers, enjoying ice-creams – you know the kind of simple, timeless pleasures that only Summer allows.  Soor Ploom Clothier shines in it’s simplicity.   The clothes have a vintage touch which adds to their charm and are all made of my favourite Summer fabrics –  soft cottons and linens.  These are the kind of timeless Summer clothes that allow kids to be kids and I am truly in love!

The way we were…

April 12, 2013

"vintage clothes for children"This morning I came across a photo of some kids from the 1970’s which I promptly shared on my facebook page.  I’m a child of the 70’s and this photo brought back lots of memories of hairstyles, flairs, big cuffs and all that was so distinctive about the style of that decade.  I can still picture my mother wearing the flair-iest jeans I’ve ever seen paired with a heavily patterned floral shirt!  It’s such fun browsing images of that time and marveling at the styles with equal amounts of humour and appreciation.  All these thoughts and memories reminded me of Petite Vintage Boutique which has one of the best selections of vintage clothes for kids that I’ve ever seen.  The clothes here aren’t re-creations but are actual clothes from the 60’s and 70’s that have been used.  Dominique, the owner hunts down the best pieces always keeping quality in mind, so most of her pieces are in tip-top condition.  As they’re all original pieces, they are truly one of a kind so when they’re gone, they’re gone.  While I wouldn’t dress Anya in vintage on a daily basis, I’d love to add a few pieces like these to her wardrobe.  What fun!

The beautiful Nixie Clothing came to my attention last year and I’ve been meaning to share it ever since then.  Nixie Clothing is a London based clothing brand for girls that uses only vintage and sustainable fabrics in the creation of their clothes.  The materials are sourced locally and all the clothes are made in London.  Nixie Clothing says their aim ‘is to respect and protect the environment, to be sustainable… to reduce re-use and recyle in all aspects of their business’.

The clothes are quirky and very unique.  In the Spring /Summer 2012 collection you’ll find lots of dresses, tops and shorts made out of gorgeous vintage silk scarves and coats made from vintage cotton.  Most of the pieces are one-off’s making them even more special.  I love the cuts and designs on offer that combine vintage styles with modern twists and also combine contrasting prints and fabrics.  Nixie clothing is definitely a one of a kind brand and everything about their creations is beautiful and original.
