Every time I see an old photo of Gaby in his babyhood (his Mom used to dress her curly-haired baby boy with 1970's class, let me tell you!), or come across whimsical portraits of families in the 1960's online, I get the urge to dress Biet exclusively in the awesome vintage wear of yesterday. And then I go on the hunt for vintage baby duds.. to the fleamarket or secondhand shops or stoop sales (NYC's version of "garage sales"- set up on the front stoop of your building), usually with little luck. Maybe its just the city, but finding affordable good quality vintage for my curly-haired babe often seems to be nearly impossible (at most places the mark-up is criminal!). So I was absolutely thrilled to come across Little Vintage.
Little Vintage is based out of London (but ships internationally) and carries the sweetest selection of hand-picked pieces, from newborn sizes up. The shop's owner Emily reached out to me and sent us a few lovely items, and they are unbelievable. They arrived wrapped up like little gifts and in tip top condition, no holes or stains, and clean and pressed. Every time I take Biet out in one of her new outfits someone stops me and asks where in the world its from. And I tell them, its from London, from this cute little online shop.
These yellow shorts with brackets are my favorite piece this summer, but I'm sure we'll be ordering a few more things as the weather cools down with the arrival of fall. Thanks Emily!
*Gaby coordinated this outfit, so please ignore the knee high black socks-as-shoes.. oh Papa, you'll need some lessons in styling as baby girl grows, but we love you anyway*
