Posts Tagged “fall”
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
Hiding the truth that a large portion of the US is currently covered in snow, we present a glimpse into what eventually all of the littles will have an opportunity to be wearing once the snow melts. Here in Los Angeles, the weather which is called “winter” has been mostly sunny & 75f degrees.
Wynn is wearing Baby Beast “Lil Homme” hat & logo hightop crew socks, both part of their upcoming Fall 2015 collection; Baby Beast was born in Detroit and crafted in LA by Zack Issa whose creative endeavors in celebrity styling have taken him across the country in both the music & sports arenas. Baby Beast is aimed at providing gender-neutral apparel and is made to be styled, layered & rocked by all kids age 2-10yrs.
On top, La Miniatura for Spring 2015 Golden Yellow Bomber Jacket & super soft Constellation tee. From 2011, designer & project runway season 3 winner, Jeffrey Sebelia has never once fallen off his course of providing clothing to dress your kid with dignity. His designs continue to thrill us and are a welcome stand out in the crowd. “Fashion Forward” words that are regularly associated with La Miniatura is comparable to receiving an Oscar with every new collection. Forward is the only way for fashion to face. For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 8 in both tee and jacket perfectly yet with room to grow.
Rowen Christian Couture launched just last year yet has already been making major waves in the boys denim department. Supreme attention to detail and quality is what has been setting Rowen Christian apart from the rest. In addition, they have continued their efforts at providing a better life experience for sick children through donating a portion of each sale to Paul Newman-founded, Roundup River Ranch. Wynn is wearing their new for Spring 2015 Brayden Classic Short which is extremely soft with a very luxurious feel. For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 7 with the waist slightly adjusted (great feature!).
Since day one…Dr. Martens (and Vans) have been on Wynn’s feet for a reason. They outlast every single one of his adventures and provide the level of comfort for his feet that he demands. For the Spring & Summer months, diehard fans can opt for canvas versus leather boots for the breathe ability factor. Wynn is wearing Dr. Martens Delaney in British Camo canvas.
We invite you to follow us on Instagram for more fashion inspiration for Spring & Fall 2015 by clicking here. In addition, all designers featured are also on Instagram and can be followed under the user names: Shopbabybeast, RowenChristian, LaMiniatura and DrMartensofficial.
If you are attending ENK Childrens Club in NYC March 1st-3rd, please be sure to stop by the booths of Baby Beast, La Miniatura & Rowen Christian for a complete look at their newest collections.
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.

For sizing reference, Wynn is wearing size 6/7 perfectly in this Bit’z Kids jacket
We continue our Feeling Fall – Style Inspiration series with a fabulous designer direct from Poland! CzesioCiuch has launched their newest fashion collection with a boom. From deeply saturated colors to tongue in cheek prints, CzesioCiuch presents Fall in perfect harmony.
The fabrics for this particular collection are in collaboration with Dots & Dashes, who also worked with the exclusive French Vogue. Colors are extremely rich, resist fade & the fabrics themselves are substantially soft cotton with elastane creating a fit that is sleek yet non-restricting.
CzesioCiuch is a company that emphasizes the individuality of all children. Their designs easily move between girls & boys closets alike and due to their unsurpassed quality, can be handed down for many years. All of CzesioCiuch’s clothing is made in Poland using the exact sewing method that the Polish have used & thrived on for centuries. Each item is embroidered with CzesioCiuch’s signature stork logo.
Fresh for this collection comes the addition of the artwork from young Polish artist, Lech Bator. His unique prints featuring a buck or doe-headed child participating in a fun activity are so unique and so unlike any other graphic tee we have ever seen. The tees are comprised of 94% cotton 6% elastane giving them a buttery-smooth fit & feel. Wynn loved his so much that we will be ordering the buck boxer tee now! CzesioCiuch’s classic cut sweatpants, seen here in their Cube print, are so thick & cozy that Wynn requested to sleep in his! Here lies the style answer to the boring sweats & those that refuse to wear anything else! Intentionally cut loosely with banded waist & bottoms making them every active Little’s must-have in their wardrobes!
Our friends at CzesioCiuch would like you to experience their new Fall collection too so are offering a 10% discount to all readers with code 23bf5317 during checkout now thru November 13th.

Welcome to the very first post of our newly updated POP Street Kidz Fashion & Lifestyle blog. It seems fitting to use this guinea pig as an official introduction to who we are, what we stand for and of course the road that led us here. If you haven’t already read the About Us portion, please take a minute to do so. It will quickly catch you up as to where the inspiration & admiration of kids fashion originated from.
Each of us has a story and I am thrilled to finally be given the proper platform to share mine with you. Sprinkled between various posts on the kids fashion boutiques & designers that I love will be small slices of our personal lives. When I refer to “our” I am referencing my family. Most were unaware that I do in fact possess 4 children, quite understandable when my youngest, Wynn is whom you have seen most often. My husband, Scott & I have the atypical “His, Mine & Ours” with him having a now 21yr old son & 17yr old daughter. I have a 17yr old son and together we adopted Wynn at birth after a single failed attempt at trying to conceive on our own.
Next month is considered National Adoption Month & I am looking forward to sharing our adoption experience with you at that time. Maybe you have considered adopting, maybe you already have? Either way, I can tell you that it was the most wonderful decision we have ever made and Wynn’s adoption came 7 months after my oldest son had brain surgery to remove a frontal lobe tumor. To say that Wynn is our rainbow after the hurricane, is by far the most accurate descriptive statement ever. Divine intervention, because this girl here has zero belief in luck, yet another post I am truly looking forward to sharing with you – having faith regardless of your chosen or not chosen religious beliefs.
I have been blogging kids fashion for almost 4yrs now, yet I am painfully aware that some of you had not known I had existed (I didn’t know you did either so we’re even). One thing I do know is that I have a sincere love of all things pretty, and no not pretty for girls only – for boys just the same. I have had the exciting, sometimes eye-rolling experience in helping, watching & somewhat influencing my stepson (from age 8), my stepdaughter (from age 4), my 17yr old (since birth, duh) and now Wynn in their fashion & style choices.
It’s no different than watching a caterpillar morph into a beautiful butterfly. They twist, turn, wrap themselves up, put on a grim face and then spread their wet little wings, finally settling in to what they were meant to be. Fashion is a way to encourage originality, self-esteem and above all to send out a message to the eyes of the world – I am who I am, like me or don’t like me – either way I’m good, I’m happy and I’m me. And as stated previously in the About Us section, if you do not feel children are worthy of being stylish, think only girls can be fancy or are under the impression that having fashion & style means also having a fat wallet, then thank you for reaching out however we are not a good fit so please exit to the right.
Coming up, we will be continuing our Feeling Fall – Style Inspiration series with the fantastic designer, Shampoodle of Sweden! Thank you for being here with us, we hope you enjoy the ride as much as we will.
Continuing on and not stopping all Rocktober long! Feeling Fall – Style Inspiration with first up european designer, Bobo Choses and our favorite boutique shopping resource to covet it from, Shan and Toad.
Last season’s Bobo chunky knit cardigan was a perfect stowaway for this Fall with perfect stripes of mustard, teal & cherry red across the front & back. We layered it with our raw white long sleeve layering tee by Frank & Lu.
This season’s breeks trousers have a scrumptiously thick flannel feel to them yet remain slimmer cut and sleek when worn. The bold addition of the long sweater-ribbed cuffs make them a perfect Fall style statement.
We have been long-standing fans of Bobo’s crewneck fleeces, this season’s mystical forest crewneck was an instant hit with my little nature lover. Sized to be layered yet not overly boxy with the familiar feel of having it for years. The addition of suspenders to any outfit is an instant pop of fun & unexpected cool. Bobo Choses’ striped braces even have a bright red smiley face that was immediately pointed out & loved by Wynn.
Israel-based boutique, Shan and Toad has been our go-to source not only for Bobo Choses but also for their exquisite and outstanding portfolio of American & European designers. Owner, Shana Laub offers a supreme $5 flat rate shipping for US & Canada residents and every package that arrives is wrapped lovingly in tissue & tied with a bow. She is also quick to respond to any sizing & fit questions in addition to making recommendations that are taste-fitted to you & your little’s preferred fashion style.
We have been fans of Chicago-based, PRSPR for awhile now and finally had the opportunity to meet owner, Victoria Moy in person last weekend during her first Pop-Up sale event! Super cute, bubbly & incredibly friendly, it’s very apparent that Victoria has a true passion for kids fashion. Seeking out the unique, fun and above all comfortable styles only, every item that PRSPR carries is hand-selected by Victoria herself.
During her Pop-Up event we selected from the numerous fashion-filled racks, the All-Saints inspired askew button cardi in mustard, teal gingham print button-down & undeniably awesome mouse pants. Every item is cuddle-soft, well made and we especially love how the color palette of her current selections echo the Fall season. We were also told that a fresh batch of new arrivals are coming soon to her site. Most items are limited in quantity and are not restocked so if you see something you love, pull the trigger right away to avoid the risk of a sell out.

It’s been a long and winding road for Harem Pants to achieve style status & popularity in the US, however the tide has turned and Harem Nation is finally claiming it’s permanent place in the fashion industry. We came across Milwaukee-based, The MINI Classy on Instagram and instantly fell in love.
Mimi & Rae handmake every pair right here in the USA using extremely limited fabric, which means prints are instantly “special edition” fresh and sell out quickly. Inspired by their children, music, art and love of fashion, they hold a vast range of experience and strive to promote creativity and innovation.
The cuffs and yoga waistband add to the comfy factor and provide a unique detail. All seams are serged and a top stitch is added for durability. The fabric is pre-washed to eliminate shrinking and yucky sizing chemicals.
The MINI Classy sent Wynn a pair of their camo harems in poly knit 2-way stretch complete with a custom mustard yellow & black striped waistband & cuffs. He is wearing size 6/7 perfectly and was extremely pleased with how soft & cozy they are. Freedom of movement, obvious durability and the overall cool factor make them the pants that we will reach for continuously in our daily dressing saga.
The MINI Classy harems are available in numerous fabric & print choices and for those that harbor their own creative side, custom order requests are always welcome. Ranging in price from $25-$27 each, The MINI Classy ships worldwide!
As an awesome way to help introduce you to how fabulous The MINI Classy is, they are giving away ONE PAIR OF HAREM PANTS! Winner will choose style & size, please enter through the rafflecopter widget below and share this with your friends!

For this Feeling Fall ~ Style Inspiration we feature several different designers that have all been time-tested & Wynn approved for quite awhile now. Designers we love and think you will too!
Last year we stumbled across a Mom on instagram that makes the cutest little “punk pants” for kids! Thanks to our IG friend, Natasha McGee for eye-spying Ieva Lejina out & sharing her with the rest of us! Wynn is wearing her lightweight cotton Punk Pants in horizontal stripe. Bright yellow patent kicks from H&M really kick up the cool factor in any outfit because afterall, yellow goes with everything!
The long anticipated & previously featured Mini & Maximus “Los Banditos” collection Bounce raglan with their Pocket Pants. A denim vest, this one by Zara, over anything is a simple way to pump up the style jam!
More from the Mini & Maximus “Los Banditos” collection ~ their Hidden Tree henley paired with their army green Pocket Pants. I grew up wearing Minnetonka mocs, Wynn wears their Triple Fringe boots in brown.
Fall Style is all about layers, cozy knits & fun kicks. Let your Littles be a part of the outfit making decision and before you know it they will be assisting you with your wardrobe choices!

In continuation with our “Feeling Fall – Style Inspiration” series, we present NYC-based designer, Frank & Lu. Earlier this year we had introduced you to the man (and the children) behind this up and coming label. Notorious for creating the best selling tee at his former venture, J. Crew, Michael Jarvela is no stranger to the fashion industry and it shows.
Frank & Lu “shawl peacoat” in butter soft stretch cotton twill is poly-lined for warmth. The addition of a moleskin collar & adjustable back tab make this the perfect go-to jacket all season long.
Frank & Lu “messenger jean” in black is lightweight twill crafted of 97% cotton 3% lycra to please even the sweats-only crowd. Interior adjustable waist & snap fly with a smooth slim fit will qualify these as a wardrobe staple.
Frank & Lu has without a doubt created the perfect layering tee. Each one is constructed of only the softest 100% cotton, lightweight & intentionally longer in the sleeves and hem to provide the perfect pop of color under everything. Slim & sleek fitting, Wynn is wearing 3 of their tees layered perfectly without any fuss and no added bulk at all.
Frank & Lu “long sleeve v neck in Mallard”, “long sleeve garment-dyed in Mineral”, “short sleeve exposed-seam pocket tee in Black”.
Frank & Lu “rib rollneck shawl sweater in dark grey” is the perfect casual or dressy piece. Ribbed cotton body with a reverse jersey collar for the perfect rolled shawl look. We layered this with Frank & Lu “long sleeve garment-dyed tee in Raw White”.
Frank & Lu “rib thermal v neck in Off White” is made of super soft cashmere-like cotton, so soft that it can be worn with or without a base layer. We layered ours with their “long sleeve garment-dyed tee in Mustard” for a perfect pop of Fall color.
For sizing reference, Wynn is perfectly wearing their Size 6 & 6/7 tops & jacket; Size 7 pants. He is 46″ tall, 43lbs.
Frank & Lu would like our friends on POP to experience their kids fashion line so are offering a generous 30% off all items with code “POPSTREET30” until October 4th. To shop with your code now & for more information on Frank & Lu, please visit them at http://www.frankandlu.com/

We had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Fore! Axel and Hudson designer, Paul Nguyen & his gorgeous wife during the last ENK kids fashion show in NYC! Incredibly open & friendly, I was thrilled that they took time from their busy day to speak to a little blogger such as myself. I was also able to peruse over their entire Spring14 collection and what a fantastic collection it is but we will save that for a later time. Introducing their Fall collection for Boys & Girls ~ impeccable quality, bamboo/cotton blended fabrics and a fit that remains the same as previous collections leaving out the guesswork for those of us that shop online.
Little ladies and their parents will love the fresh batch of Fore N’ Birdie. The outfit featured on the left is comprised of the softest crinkle cotton jersey and marshmallow-soft cotton melange. A completely fancy look with the feel of scrumptious & lazy Sunday afternoons! The same applies for the most adorable military jacket for girls that we have yet to see!
The boys get cool shots of the hottest color for Fall ~ dark red (brick, maroon, bordeaux – you get it). Heavy cotton jersey, boucle’ & their signature bamboo/cotton are all on tap for keeping the boys comfortable yet exquisitely stylish. This is the wardrobe that will easily take him from school to out to dinner with the grandparents & beyond.
To view the entire Fall collection for Boys & Girls, please visit http://www.foreaxelandhudson.com/catalog/ which also includes a list of their online retailers.
