I love seeing new brands pop up on the boards. I really like the Keedo outfits that Robyn posted. My Ava never seems to have a lot from any one brand, but a little from a lot of brands. I think I like it that way--an excuse to keep shopping--the quest for super cuteness. Anyway, here are some other brand options out there.
These two oufits are from Chicken Noodle. Ava loves monkeys and I really like the colors on both of these.
These two are from Baby Lulu. The first one I bought ahead from last year's line and the second is from this season. Ignore the blue line running through the second picture---must have been something on the camera lens.
This outfit is from Bailey Boys. She also has a capri and t-shirt set from Bailey Buddies which is their more casual stuff.
This outfit is by Mary James. We have a couple of other outfits for this season by her too. I love this brand!
This is a handmade outfit.
This is Trish Scully from last year's line. I have my eye on another Trish set, but I really can't justify it.

Ava is just gorgeous! I love her pictures...she's a great little model. :) Thanks for sharing all your more unusual finds with us. :)
I really love the monkey dress. It's so cute and different. I also absolutely *love* the Mary James outfit and the one from Trish Scully. Where do you find those brands?

Ooooh!! I love it all but especially love the monkey dress! Your dd looks really adorable in everything!
If you ever want to sell the monkey dress, let me know!! :D

I LOVE your style!!! Thats exactly the way I dress DD!! Butterfly's, ladybugs, floral prints! And, the monkeys are adorable!!! Where do you find all this?? Online?? Do they have a website?? I mean, for the monkey outfit??

I absolutely LOVE Mary James. I have never seen an outfit that I didn't at least like. Everything from that brand is so sweet and looks amazing on (runs small--size up a full size). I have seen a very small and not really representative selection online at www.bestdressedchild.com. There is a local boutique here that carries her entire line. It's not just dresses, but capris and short sets too. Here is the wholesale rep: Mary James
contact: Trasey Newlove
(Just for clarification, I don't know this person. I got her name from http://jamesgirone.com/index.htm. That site is an industry site and has every brand of children's clothing known to man and the wholesale contacts---it's really not for the general public, but for people that want to purchase for their own boutiques)
You may want to call that number and see if they sell to any boutiques near you. This person would not sell directly, but should be able to give you a retail contact. I'm telling you, it's worth it. The price is similar to Janie and Jack.
As far as Trish Scully goes, her things are incredible but ridiculously priced. Some of it is way too sophisticated for a child and downright ugly, but then you will run up on something beautiful. I looked at the fall line and there is exactly one pair of pants that I like and that is IT. The rest is atrocious. Anyway, I know they sell it at www.achildscloset.com and www.forgetmenotkids.com. Your best bet is to wait until the end of the season when it goes half price and buy ahead. That's what I did with that outfit. You can usually still find what you want because it's so expensive nobody buys it.

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments! I ordered the monkey dress online at http://www.thecrazydazy.com/index.asp All they had was a 2t, and luckily that was the size I needed. They sell it at www.bestdressedkids.com too, but I think they just have size 4 left. I saw it there first. There is a whole monkey line, but that dress was by far my favorite piece. Here is the company's website http://www.chicken-noodle.com/ It will point you to a retial location near you!

Such a cute model, and what great outfits! Pretty and kind of whimsical. My favorites are both Chicken Noodle ones. The monkey is SO cute and fun, and I love the style of the second one even more. Did the monkey line include any tops and capris? I don't think I've bought any Chicken Noodle for Eliza, but my older daughter had several of their dresses when she was younger, and they were always favorites. I think I need to try to track them down again!
Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the links and shame on you for introducing me to Chicken Noodle!!!! The clothes are absolutely adorable and my budget will only allow one or two! UGH!!! I am ordering the Monkey Business dress in a 12m size for DD ASAP!
03-27-2005, 01:37 PM
WOW! Those outfits are adorable. You've got great taste! :)
03-27-2005, 01:40 PM
That "best dressed kids" site has some ADORABLE stuff. I bookmarked it! Thanks for feeding my ever-growing girls' clothes shopping addiction :P
03-27-2005, 02:07 PM

03-27-2005, 02:46 PM
Gorgeous!! The outfits are tdf and your DD is so adorable. I love how great your pictures turned out too. I can almost never get one of DS's face let alone him sitting down!
03-27-2005, 07:57 PM
Wow, wow, and wow again! I'm going to go before I start shopping again! Your daughter has beautiful clothes and obviously your good taste prevails!

Wow! I love all the outfits, they are so cute. Ava looks great in everything. Chicken Noodle has some really "fun" clothing. The monkey dress is just great. Wonderful choices.

Your DD is a darling model; she looks great in everything! And, we are now on the hunt for a monkey dress. Monkeys are my DH's favorite animal so I had to show him your post. He tells me his DD *needs* that dress. I never thought I'd hear that come out of his mouth! :)
03-27-2005, 11:54 PM
Hi Lauren and Karin,
Since making this post, all the monkey dresses were wiped out on the websites that have been mentioned. Even the capri set with the monkey face is sold out now. I am so glad people like it! It really is cute! I did a search and found the sundress as a new arrival at this website. http://www.oneofakindkid.com/chx212703.html
The smallest size it comes in is a 2T. Lauren and Karin, you might want to consider buying it for next year or going with the romper which I super cute too! (I am thinking your daugthers are one year olds, but I could have totally dreamed that up). Here is the romper:

Thank you, Tracey, for posting this. Your DD is so beautiful in that monkey dress! How does the monkey dress fit? How long is it? What size should I get for my DD who is 32 inches and 25.5 pounds at 13 months? She is in the 98 percentile for height and growing rapidly.
Ava is beautiful! What fun and sweet outfits - great taste, mama!
Thanks for sharing.

You are right that Isa is 1! **Thank you** for finding the romper. I will be ordering that today. I may also have to get the dress in a 2T and hope that it will fit next year. Thank you, thank you! You are too sweet.
03-28-2005, 10:57 AM
Tracey, what darling pictures!!!! I love the way you dress your DD - so sweet and whimsical! I always love seeing your clothing finds!! :)
03-28-2005, 04:04 PM
The smallest size is a 2T and that is the size my DD has on. The dress is 22 inches long and runs true to size. Ava an average size and will be 2 next week! She hasn't been measured in a while, but I'd say around 35 inches give or take a half inch. I hope that helps.
