While doing a little online perusing (for ourselves), on chic Italian website Luisaviaroma, we came across the ‘Kids’ section and let out a squeal of delight! Low-and-behold fave pattern-forward designer Stella Jean has a line for girls!  Okay, so the prices are a bit steep, but these retro-style, vibrant prints translet perfecting to the mini-me.  While we covet pieces like this and this from their women’s line, this little dress below looks perfect paired with solid accessories. Bello!—CC

January is all about new beginnings and feeling good about yourself…which is why we are loving some of these small indulgences for the new year.  Nothing inspires being active like new work-out clothes and we love this LuluLemon merino wool oh-so-chic sweater to throw over your spin pants.  Delicate gold jewelry is top of our list with these goodies by Shaun Leane and Jennifer Meyer.  In case you are headed somewhere warm (lucky you), we love this cut-out bathing suit from Stella McCartney that fits like a dream.  Oh, and how about a little portable photo printer to print out all those vacay pics right from your phone over wifi.  Happy January. —CC

One of the best winter accessories you can have for your child is a loop scarf.  Easy enough for them to put on themselves, it insures necks stay warm and can even adjust up the face to cover the nose and mouth on those really freezing days (like, everyday).  These are not too chunky and look great on boy and girl alike, plus, they are on-sale at ChildrenChic for $16.80!—CC

Adidas sneakers, the shoe of choice for the fashionable set (see far below) is also a great selection for the smaller set.  We know these shoes are nothing new, but they are both practical and can be styled to look right with just about anything.  And if you are one to follow the trends… you know these shoes are here to stay for spring.  We quite like these little style stars below rocking their adidas.—CC

Doll houses are a wonderful gift that’s prefect for a wide age-range of children.  Our favorite choices come from HaPe and Le Toy Van.  HaPe’s version of doll houses are very hip and green (complete with a solar panel in this one!).  The primary colors and non-fussy interior make this a good style house for boys or girls. The HaPe furniture is equally as modern, with clean lines and no frills.  Le Toy Van makes the most whimsical and adorable wooden houses and accessories, perfect for little girls. And we love this Excalibur castle version of a ‘doll house’ as well.  All 3 options are available with express ship to arrive in time for Christmas.—CC
