In style-conscious LA—where it’s not hard to find an 8-year-old dressed better than you—the hippest boutiques carry plenty of goods for young fashion plates. Socialite/designer Minnie Mortimer (11973 San Vicente Blvd., Brentwood, 310.663.6544) recently opened her eponymous women’s clothing boutique featuring a pop-up shop from child clothier Camp Mini. When celebrity moms visit Kitson (115 S. Robertson Blvd., LA, 310.859.2652) for a chic handbag or designer frock, they can hit Kitson Kids (116 N. Robertson Blvd., LA, 310.657.0450) a block up the boulevard. Nearby, Splendid (111 S. Robertson Blvd., LA, 310.860.0334) offers its cheery, extra-soft cotton basics for men, women and children. M. Fredric (seven locations; visit mfredric.com) features many of the same au courant brands—True Religion, Wildfox—in its kids section as in its men’s and women’s collections. Yolk (1626 Silverlake Blvd., Silver Lake, 323.660.4315) goes beyond clothing to offer accessories, jewelry and other lifestyle items such as charming, homespun-style toys. At the Venice flagship of Alternative Apparel (1337 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, 310.482.3316), the burnout T-shirts that look so hip on moms and dads are available for bambinos, too. Now, there are some mommy-and-me outfits we can get behind.
