“Mini Shatsu began over thirty years ago with a boy and some unassuming white cotton tees. With rows of stacked cardboard boxes as his makeshift workstation, and cans of spray paint and Sharpies in hand, that boy went to work and dreamed up some of the coolest tee shirts E-V-E-R!”
This is an important excerpt from Mini Shatsu‘s website because to those that are unfamiliar with the designer, no they are not new and no they did not replicate anyone else’s designs. In fact, Mini Shatsu was the first designer to launch the “faux graphic design” tee and yes, others quickly followed and imitated. We have known them for years, however it’s been awhile since we’ve tasted their design flavors and are pleased to say that they are just as delicious as they were before.
Wynn is wearing Mini Shatsu Birds of Paradise french terry shorts with faux suspenders (adjustable waistband makes these super sweet), Retro Dot polo with removable bowtie & Vintage Motorbike tee. All three are extremely soft with a cut that is perfect for every “body”.

For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 8 in both top & bottom with room for those Summertime growth spurts.
We have followed Australia-based Duke of London since their original launch onto the kids fashion scene many moons ago. Throughout this time we have gotten to know designer, Kiri Proctor very well. With every new collection she has launched, the excitement and the struggle has been real. A single mom to two gorgeous boys (Duke and London), Kiri was the first designer to launch animal print hammer pants (imitations were quick to follow). Throughout numerous replications of her designs & fabrics by other companies, Kiri has been knocked down yet continues to get back up, standing on her own two feet. Her designs have been regularly spotted on mini celebrities such as Mason Disick, Kingston & Zuma Rossdale, Alonso Mateo and more.
Her newest collection, released in February down under for their Autumn/Winter is aptly entitled “SONS” and while our seasons are upside down with Australia, Kiri was keen to include “wear now” pieces for us here in the US.
Duke of London is available online by clicking here and a list of stockists is included on site for your convenience as it has, since day one, been a quick sell out. We are looking forward to their next collection, “Country Cowboy” which will make it’s Australian debut very soon with it’s US launch to follow.
For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 6 in the Mateo tank perfectly & size 5 in the Hammer pants which do run generous.
“Like a comet in the universe”, Bla Bla Monkey is designed in France and made in Portugal of certified oeko-tex which is free from toxic particles. Designers Emily & Helena have set out to stake their position in the children’s fashion world as a cheeky, comfortable and easy to love brand for sizes 0 thru 10yr.Bla Bla Monkey Silex Sweat layered over La Miniatura tuxedo shirt, Nora Gray “wild horses” scarf, Baby Beast harem joggers, Popupshop panda socks, Dr. Marten boots.
*For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 8yr in both pieces perfectly so if between sizes make sure you size up.
“Mix it. match it. layer it. style it. rock it. Every piece is made for that. Unleash the Beast.“ taken directly from the Baby Beast website and we could not agree more. If you don’t know their name by now then you’ve got some serious catching up to do within the kids fashion world.
Detroit-based and Los Angeles-made, designed by the amazingly talented Zack Issa & Taylor Hinds, Baby Beast exploded onto the scene last year with a serious game face for nothing less than success. Hard work, determination and extreme attention to quality fabrics, fits and cuts is what will continue to set Baby Beast apart and above the rest. This particular style pictorial is so close to our heart that we can’t help but add in some of our favorite quotes (and song lyrics) to what has become our favorite photo session to date.
“Every brick they threw at me I used to stand on.” Sean Combs. Wynn is wearing Baby Beast classic v-neck, striped harem shorts, Lil’ Homme socks & Lil’ Homme snapback paired with Dr. Marten brit camo boots (a gift to us from the lovely Rowen Christian Couture) & Blu Pony Vintage suspenders.

I am and always have been a huge believer in the universe and the exquisite force it’s able to flex. Walking a straight line into divine intervention, we were introduced to Feather Drum by our good friend and amazing professional stylist extraordinaire, Kiki Tillman. Because I am a believer, whenever intertwined with someone new, I instantly look for the “connection”…you know the invisible red thread that binds those that are destined to meet in some way, shape or form.
The red thread is this: Feather Drum designer, Kelly-Lee “draws her inspiration from her life-long love of French design, her local environment and her natural bohemian style to produce this gorgeous range of quality garments that are fashion forward, sophisticated and fun to wear for free-spirited girls and boys.” Wynn is part French, I am part Bohemian (and yes, it’s a real ethnic background and yes there really was a country called Bohemia that is now referred to only as the Czech Republic). Wynn is also part Native American and whether the designer intended this or not, several pieces breathe of a long lost Indian tribe. As for the free spirit part, if you’ve learned anything at all from our instagram about my son then you know this was a direct hit.
Feather Drum Dreamer Sweater (Wynn is wearing size 6) paired with Scotch Shrunk bleached denim scarf & H&M optic white denim.

*for sizing reference, Feather Drum appears to run generous. Wynn is almost 50″ tall and wearing size 5 in their Muscle tank, size 6 in their Dreamer sweater perfectly.

The Good Ones Clothing was founded in Spring 2012 in Ft. Wayne, IN (aka Bricktown). They “exist to fulfill a pretty singular purpose: to create products celebrating the kids that light fireworks in our souls.” and yes of course we love that! We also are deeply infatuated with their devotion to music and their dizzying spin on rockabilly fashion for kids.Wynn is wearing The Good Ones’ Record Collector shirt & Haberdash II zip tie, which by the way is the coolest tie ever with it’s easy to wear zipper closure, paired with La Miniatura licorice denim.
The Good Ones not only produces cool to wear clothing but is also firmly rooted in the land of make-believe…they have a make-believe band, that plays in make-believe locations, and likes make-believe things. And their make-believe journeys serve as a muse to them. Their band is called The Final Hurrahs & consists of Adrian, Bullfrog, Franklin and Stuart (and their best friend Paulie). All of their packaging is done with cool twists and added adornments like pin-back buttons & backstage passes! We even received a CD of The Final Hurrahs and for make believe they really can rock out a good jam! The Good Ones World Tour Jacket is the perfect layer for us in Cali all year round. In addition to being fully reversible with a cool The Good Ones print on the inside, it’s super soft – not at all sticky like some nylon jackets are – and glides right on with a collar that can be popped up for cool, effortless style.
In addition to what some may call “on holiday” style with a button up and tie…this is every day wear for us, but for those of you that prefer a more casual, chill look then The Good Ones Everything is Good tee and Dreamer Shorts are your love connection. We styled them with old school striped socks, classic Converse low tops & Furious Kingston check flat cap.
