The absolute best time of the year for fashion and style is quickly approaching. Fall fashion allows for layers upon layers, pops of fire based colors, chunky well loved, well worn boots, tattered yet sophisticated scarves and hats. Fall is by far our most favorite of all the seasons and even though we live in Los Angeles, we seek out the spaces that resemble it in appearance.
Our first looks come from a far away land, across the pond in Germany.
Infantium Victoria, founded 2014 by Julia Gaydina and Dinie van den Heuvel, specializes in the design of high-end organic and vegan fashion for kids.
Influenced by a deep fascination for romantic themes and nostalgia, Infantium Victoria offers a true alternative to mainstream fast-fashion – not only aesthetically but also ethically.
Romantic hues of Fall. Lush hunter green velvet blazer by Infantium Victoria is an artistic interpretation of the beloved Chesterfield Sofa. It’s padded with organic kapok and lined with fine cotton poplin. This is the statement piece that will bring every Fall thru Winter outfit they wear to the forefront of style.

*Wynn is 4’8 for sizing reference he is wearing size 12 in the blazer and jumpsuit. For jumpsuit, we suggest a size down as it runs generous.
BRONSON CANYON PARK, LOS ANGELES – AUGUST 2018
Bobo Choses latest collection for Spring/Summer 2015 entitled, “Guess Whose Coming to Breakfast” has hit the US with a major boom. As a kids fashion blogger, I am keenly unaware of any other designer that has this level of “black stallion endurance” to the point of having so many styles and sizes sell out within minutes of it’s launch. And yet there is more, the second drop of Bobo Choses is scheduled to appear at the beginning of February. The long awaited breakfast mugs are anticipated to sell out even faster than the clothing itself. Warm up your fingers, set your alarms and be prepared!
Wynn wears Bobo Choses “clever ghost” tank and red “petit monster trousers” – both in size 8/9 and is currently 4′ tall, 55lbs.

Seersucker suits and separates have long been a Summer time love. Generations have continously kept this airy, rippled fabric for weddings, parties and semi-casual events. For this Spring/Summer, La Miniatura re-introduces the feeling of safety and home with classic seersucker in Navy or Tan dip-dye for the boys and Pink dip-dye for the girls.
From a classic plaid button down pairing to a super casual graphic tee, seersucker fabric transforms easily and instantly. Cool, calm and collected. The 3 fashion keys that keep almost all boys in check with whatever you assist in selecting for them to wear.
Printed, lightweight oxford cotton shirts have become an instant favorite – alone or for layering under suits and over tees. Introduce new colors into your son’s wardrobes this Spring/Summer. It is the perfect time to flash all colors of the rainbow and get them accustomed to selecting more than just blue or green on their own.
La Miniatura will be releasing their Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Boys & Girls in early February at fine retailers worldwide. For updates and additional information, you can follow them on Instagram by clicking here or Facebook here. Also visit their website at www.laminiaturakids.com
For sizing reference, Wynn is 4′ tall, 55lbs. and wearing all clothing by La Miniatura, size 6 perfectly. Footwear by Primigi, Venettini & Atlanta Mocs.
It’s true that we may live in Los Angeles now vs the frigid Midwest, but that doesn’t change what has been permanently embedded into our heads as to what Fall means or how it feels. Fall is the awakening of all four seasons. It is the most colorful, the most enchanted and by far the absolute best season for fashion. Adjusting our sails to accomodate for chilly mornings, hot afternoons & cool nights is easy when your closet is fully fashion armed like Wynn’s (yes, he has three times as many clothes as I do).
New for Fall is this reversible satin jacket by Bit’z Kids. We first spied this lovely back in March during the ENK show in NYC and instantly fell in love with it’s vintage vibe. Olive green with ferocious tigers on one side and solid red on the reverse. This jacket even comes with an iron on skeleton patch that we will be placing on the red side! This is the perfect topper over a smooth white short sleeve button down by Knuckleheads (The Boys Store), Noro suspender shorts (Shan and Toad) and our favorite brogue boots (Next). Add in a tie for extra flavor, this one is from Crewcuts. We have also become quite partial to crew socks (we have a bit of an addiction to socks) and these which we are thrilled with are from Stride Rite (Amazon).
So, even though we no longer live where we will need excessive layers, hefty down jackets & earmuffs ~ we can still emulate the fall style we know and love. Our fashion color choices will grow darker and more rich in color as we reminisce of our Midwest roots.
As a special treat for our Pop Street Kidz friends you can now save 20% off all new arrivals at Bit’z Kids with code POP20OFF14FALL beginning September 18th thru September 30th. If you love this jacket as much as we do or the numerous plaid skinny pants Bit’z just added to their site, we suggest you order sooner than later.

Recently launched, Brooklyn-based Kipp Collection is an all exclusive childrens wear brand featuring high end fashion for the younger set. Hip, smart and sophisticated yet not overly fancy. Kipp has set out to satisfy those with a serious taste for fashion and style. Comfortable tailored cuts, highly saturated dyes and smooth, soft fabrics have us completely enthralled for Fall.
The maroon plaid shirt is light and airy making it a perfect layering piece regardless of what temperature zone you reside in. Escaping from the per usual boring cardigans, Kipp Collection has produced several fashion forward versions for Fall. We absolutely love the interesting addition of a second flap across the one Wynn is wearing. Their slim suede pants are designed with a slightly higher front rise than most “current trend” pants for boys making them present as a more traditional yet still very modern look.

Modeled by Wynn Goldberg on location at the old Los Angeles zoo inside Griffith Park. *for sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 7 in both top and cardigan and size 6x in pants.

We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected to represent NYC-based, Appaman as part of their new AppaMom program. As an AppaMom we were given the opportunity to handpick several pieces from Appaman’s Spring 2014 collection, cool right?!?
For our first editorial we’ve styled our land-based pieces in various ways to explore the versatility of Appaman’s collection. Coming up next we feature their amazing Swim Collection! For now, here comes the street cred that Appaman has been known for since the Summer of 2003. We know that every kid has their own style (generally influenced by their parents until the tween years) so for the Harvard-bound Poindexter’s we styled Appaman’s Galaxy plaid Tilden Shirt buttoned all the way up under their Graham Cardigan paired with their Galaxy Skinny Twill Pants. Always roll up the pants, lower for sophisticated & higher for warmer, hipster days. Also invest in high quality wingtip shoes, we love ours by Crewcuts. For those that prefer a more casual yet still preppy look, unbutton the collar – leave the cardigan open & totally add in the cool shades like Appaman’s The Lennon sunglasses. Wynn is wearing size 7 in all pieces comfortably & thanks to the interior adjustable waistband on all of Appaman’s bottoms, Mr. String Bean has no trouble keeping them up.
All of Appaman’s clothing is naturally soft from the start. Nothing scratchy or itchy here, ever. We especially love how lightweight the Skinny Twill Pants are which make them perfect for Spring & even those cooler Summer nights. For those that prefer a more Rude Boy prep style, pop the collar on Appaman’s plaid shirt and leave it halfway untucked. The collar actually stays up nicely and on the pants, Wynn was thrilled to show off his “monkey on my butt” (boys!).
Our cruising the boardwalk or shopping at the local Farmer’s Market attire includes Appaman’s Fisherman’s Hat, Lennon shades, Graham Cardigan & Skinny Twills. We switched out our footwear to Primigi’s boat mocs and added in our Bobo Choses tank top to show how easily Appaman cohabits with other items from their closets.
Sweet park & playground filled days require easy to wear, easy to move in kid-friendly clothing. Appaman consistently wins us over in the Cool, Calm & Collected department. Wynn is wearing their Short Sleeve Henley in Concrete paired with their super comfy Stanton Shorts in Robot Blue which are pull-on style yet feature an interior adjustable waistband (hands in the ‘err!). Appaman has certainly done their homework on insuring their collections fit every kids body perfectly, which is an amazing feat for any designer to accomplish and thus we applaud them for.
Appaman pays homage to Steve McQueen, James Dean & the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley with their version of the British-style Barracuda Jacket. A lightweight canvas with an uber-cool plaid lining. This is by far the jacket that will take them from Spring thru Summer in cool, understated style. Push up the sleeves and don’t forget your shades & hat! Appaman’s Rockabilly shades are perfect for adding in a touch of swag to an otherwise super casual outfit.
The Barracuda Jacket of the season will live with every single designer in your kids closet in total harmony. We included it over our Jagged Culture camo skull tee, Vicious Wear crumb pants & Timberland boots. And never forget the shades! Not only do they protect your kids peepers from harmful rays but they instantly breathe fresh & fly into any outfit. Wynn is wearing Appaman’s The Lennon.
Fit, Quality & Style – Appaman will win the game of Red Rover Red Rover every single time when it comes to outlasting your kids clothing antics. They are meant to be worn and to be passed down to the next little Poindexters, Rude Boys, Boardwalk Cuties & Rockstars.
Coming up we feature Appaman’s Swim Collection, in the meantime clicking on any of the highlighted links will take you to all purchasing & additional item information. Also for more information on Appaman’s AppaMom program, just click on our official AppaMom badge featured on our right sidebar!

We spent our 1st day of Spring under a blanket of snow but old man winter has been given his eviction notice and we have chosen to close our eyes & dream of the smell of freshly cut grass, the sweet sound of the birds singing & much warmer temperatures. The forecast for Spring style based on many kids fashion collections that we have gushed over is deeply saturated colors with very few pastels being seen. Great news for those of us, like myself, who actually prefer the dark over the light. Having said all this, the lightest shade (sans white) we are connecting with for our own Spring/Summer wardrobe is chambray – an almost denim-washed out sorta blue that magically meshes with every other color imaginable. As luck would have it, Appaman presents our favorite go-to Mod Suit year after year in…yes Chambray.
We are painfully aware that many of you include a suit into your kids wardrobe based solely on a special occasion coming up and once that occasion has ended the suit hangs in the dark, lonely and confused as to what it did to deserve only that one shot at success. “Saving it for Good” something my Grandmother would do and seriously, why?!? Isn’t every day a Good Day? It should also be noted that Appaman’s Mod Suit is…wait for it, Machine Washable (dry flat to retain its fabulous shape). The Fancy, presented above and the usual suspect way of wearing a suit. Wynn’s style is played out with a white Crewcuts dress shirt, Liberty of London for Crewcuts floral print tie (love) & classic Crewcuts wingtips.
For those chappy fun times like trips to the museum, city exploring or even a casual afternoon lunch at a real restaurant (introduce them early to finer dining, they will thank you later when they go on their first date). We’ve styled our Appaman Mod Suit with a Bobo Choses graphic tee, black Timberland boots & added in our funky Pilot hat.
Snap back to reality, this slim shady here prefers Cool, Calm & Collected. Appaman’s Mod Suit owns all three of those licks and proves it every season. We’ve put our Mod Suit blazer over a Mini & Maximus hooded tee, Zara denim jeans, Doc Marten boots & H&M baller cap.
Beverly Hills or Main Street USA, for those of you that breathe the sixteen candles lifestyle this one’s for you! Appaman Mod Suit pants paired with Crewcuts pindot button down & Primigi black patent loafers. Socks or no Socks? Totally up to you, true preppies go sock free.
A weekend at Bernie’s or a backyard summer bbq calls for the tropical flavor of florals. Keep it classy by still wearing your Appaman Mod Suit. Push up the sleeves, roll up the pants – we’ve styled ours with this Hawaiian-inspired number by Furious Kingston and while you can’t see his feet he is wearing his Crewcuts wingtips with the pants rolled up – twice!
The dock of the bay, afternoon walks on the beach (still too cold to swim) or an outing with the grandparents (take me to the zoo please), we all know how much the grandparents love to see your kids in something other than a tee & jeans. Spiff them up and maybe they will take them out more often (score!). Wynn wears the pants (pun intended) with his Scotch Shrunk C’Mon floral print tee, Milk & Soda straw fedora with Livie & Luca sandals.
6 ways to wear it…..now stop saving it for good! Our favorite boutique since 2008 for Appaman is The Boys Store and they are currently offering 35% off all New Spring Arrivals (including Appaman’s mod suit) with code Spring14. Tell them we sent ya.
*for sizing reference, Wynn is wearing a size 7 Appaman Mod Suit (wee bit roomy however ours will not feel the warmth of Spring until May which is when us blokes in the Midwest actually have “spring” temps).
Dutch fashion label, Haas has set out to create a contemporary kids clothing line with a direct focus on allowing the ones that will be wearing it to maintain their desire for comfort and style with ease. Every collection that Haas presents is made with the level of quality one would expect from a Dutch brand – longevity through the growing years & beyond.
Haas’ Grey Collection was designed for the urban kid who demands to be a chameleon in style when wearing what others may deem as “sweats”. Slim-fitting, color-blocked trousers in soft stretchy cotton/elastane are far from sloppy or plain. Haas’ matching hooded wide stripe pullover is neither boxy or overly slim. We layered ours with a solid purple button down (collar up) for the perfect punch of preppy casual. In addition to the Grey Collection, Haas presents 3 other fashion lines: T – for the ultimate in day through night loungewear, B-Right for the mainstay weekend warriors & Stripes for instant Dutch recognition. Haas also produces the loftiest stitched blankets & scarves to keep the home base comfort level in tact while sleeping, snuggling or out on the street.
Haas’ on-site pricing is in Euro dollars, you can use this calculator to determine costs plus shipping. Dutch quality is unsurpassed in the kids fashion market, you can rest assured that it will maintain its original appearance, fit & comfort throughout multiple children wearing it.
