Looking to the moon and the stars for courage, strength and inspiration is what the designers behind Japanese children’s fashion shoe brand, Tsukihoshi did when creating their fresh and funky footwear. “Moonstar” aka Tsukihoshi has been designing shoes for children’s growing feet for over 140 years! Wynn is wearing Tsukihoshi’s “Speed” trainer. All of their footwear is:
- Machine Washable – Machine wash COLD; Remove insole and AIR dry (NO dryer use).
- Ultra lightweight – Provides exceptional comfort and functionality for kids.
- Antibacterial Insole – Infused with natural Green Tea extract (no chemicals) to kill odor causing germs.
- Pedorthist Friendly – With its removable insole, long counters, and child-specific patterns, Tsukihoshi has become a favorite for Pedorthists looking to make modifications to accommodate customized orthotics and/or AFO’s.
- Barefoot Comfort – Wide toe boxes allow natural splaying of toes for balanced landing and maximum comfort.
- Heel Stabilizer – Long heel counter provides optimum stability.
- Easy On & Off – Single strap ‘hook and loop’ closure and elastic faux-laces for superb fitting.
- Arch Support – Shoe last and insole designed to provide proper arch support for growing kids.

Michael Jarvela, formerly with J. Crew & the one responsible for their “favorite tee” knows how to produce sleek & smooth fashion that kids will not resist wearing. Every piece, whether a basic staple tee or slim cut chino is made to feel and wear like a favorite old friend. Timeless, classic and always in style.
For Spring 2014, Frank & Lu has set up and knocked down another amazing mineral-based color palette. Fresh new graphics paired with signature top-stitching that can be seen on their tees, chinos & bermudas keeps this entire collection true to their now widely familiar NYC style.
Frank & Lu’s new night glow classic trench is sure to be a front runner and we anticipate this to be an extremely desireable piece amongst not only the smaller set but their adult counterparts as well. Keeping fashion classy for kids is what Frank & Lu has aspired to do since day one and they have successfully achieved that once again.
Every seasonal collection of Frank & Lu contains black, the ultimate color recognized with city dwellers as the “wear to anything and everything” color for protecting the coven of cool, calm & collected style. As a special treat to our Pop readers with a swaying nod to one of our favorite television series, American Horror Story – we are giving away a size 6 Frank & Lu black fine gauge zip cardigan + size 6 staple tee – both in black and ends Tuesday, January 28th at Midnight CST with the winner announced on Wednesday, January 29th. To enter please follow all of the requirements listed below via Rafflecopter.
Los Banditos, the newest collection from California-based Mini & Maximus is hitting stores now & soon on MIMA’s website. We took several fabulous pieces to the local playground with Wynn & Lucy ~ the 2 toughest & most clothing discriminating hooligans we know.
Made in the USA, Mini & Maximus continues to thrill us with their buttery-soft clothing and kid-friendly graphics. Each piece is constructed to hold up to rigorous playground antics & beyond. Don’t count on your Littles wanting to leave early either, MIMA prides itself on cool, comfortable & non-constricting clothing.
For Sizing reference; Wynn is 46″ tall, 43lbs. he is wearing Size 7 in all tops & Size 8 pants. Lucy is 47″ tall, 48lbs. and is wearing Size 7 in all tops & Size 8 in pants. They possibly could have fit into Size 6 tops but both needed Size 8 pants for length.
Measurements for Size 7 tops range from 17.5″ to 18.5″ long from shoulder to hem. Size 8 pants measure 10″ flat across unstretched waistband & vary between 27″-30″ in length.

Fall is by far the best season for Fashion & with our temps cooperating nicely we had the opportunity to go out & have a little fun with some of our favorite pieces from Wynn’s closet. At the end, please take a minute to be introduced to the photographer that took these photos. He’s one heck of an amazing young man that I am proud to know & a true inspiration to others, including myself.

Photographing children is never an easy task, while I usually do it myself, for these photos I enlisted the help of 17yr old Jacob Kuziela. In the past, Jacob’s main subjects were non-moving, still & didn’t speak. He did a phenomenal job & displayed an extreme amount of patience with Wynn. Everyone has a story and I am thrilled to share Jacob’s with you!
At 13 years old, Jacob lost his father to cancer. Since that time he has wanted every single second of every day captured forever. As Jacob himself told me when I asked how he decided to start taking pictures, he said “I was always interested in photography, the way certain things looked when it was captured. One night I was taking the garbage can up and the sky just looked so gorgeous and I wanted to be able to keep that image forever. My pictures aren’t just pictures, they’re memories. I asked for a camera for Christmas and I got one and what ensued is many months of me expressing who I am with my photography.” I am so proud to call Jacob my friend. He is a true & genuine inspiring young man whom I see having a remarkable future in photography or anything else he sets out to do.
