Oh my! Can I borrow the first girl's outfit? :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:46 PM) : 

Wow I am utterly impressed with their outfits. When I was younger I wore oshkosh, and whatever else my mother gave me.


Blogger on nel line said ... (5:46 PM) :

Kids are so much cooler now. I used to wear sweatsuits at that age.

omg i hope you have parental consent
but what amazing stylish kids
if you saw what i wore at that age...
jeeze, heck, i don't dress that cool at 17


Blogger Tereneh Idia said ... (6:01 PM) : 

These kids are more than alright they are fantastic! One someone questions the family-friendliness (or less-ness) of NYC all they have to do is look at these pictures. They should be on a I (heart) NY billboard. Style confidence and glowing children. Gotta a love a New York City kid.

"kids these days....." haha

I'm not so keen on the second, but my gosh, the first is absolutely brilliant! Such energy.

Blogger SONGMAKER said ... (6:09 PM) : 

1. My favorite dress + my favorite tights + my favorite cardigan + my favorite shoes + my favorite hair accessory = my favoritest outfit ever in the whole entire world!

2. Kid Rock(s)!


Blogger Pamela said ... (6:18 PM) : 

loved the pictures!
nice outfits!


Blogger greenjeans said ... (6:18 PM) : 

My first impression was: 'man, I hope I have kids that cool' then it was 'man, if I did, that would mean my kids are cooler than me...' kind of like if jesus realized he in fact could heat up a burrito so hot even He couldn't eat it...sounds great at first, then just a tiny depressing...


Blogger Kal said ... (6:19 PM) : 

I wanna be that little boy!


Blogger Mom Fashion World said ... (6:22 PM) : 

they are so cute and stylish.
just started blogging, lets exchange links. visit my site,


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:26 PM) : 

Either these kids have serious taste in style or thier parents do aha.


Blogger SarahwithanH said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Ah! They are both so cute!

Loving the little girl's style.

The world would be a much more interesting place if everyone had the fearlessness of children. :)


Blogger Julia said ... (6:32 PM) : 

Wow! The girl's dress is just fantastic. It's really difficult to dress kids fashionably in a way that still keeps them young, I find.

Her mommy must have a very keen eye (;


Blogger Jackie said ... (6:34 PM) : 

I can imagine how that little girl brightens up the streets! She looks so full of life!

aww they are so adorable!
and stylin'


Blogger junglesiren said ... (7:20 PM) : 

Both so different and yet so fantastic.

Girl on top mixes so many fun elements but maybe what's best is the joyous look on her cute face. Check out those blue nails!

The kid on the bottom rockin' the sk8er look is really so cool. Not sure if it's a boy or a girl but either way it works. If it's a girl.... WOW! When so many little girls take their style cues from HSM it's delightful to see one bold enough to forge a different path.

Makes me wanna go get knocked-up.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:23 PM) : 

I wish these kids were friends with me when i was a kid.


Blogger Foster Huntington said ... (7:29 PM) : 

I love the boys skate influenced style. his hair is awesome

I love how individual each of them is, and how fabulous. I'm glad nobody is telling them they can't wear that, because blah blah blah.


Blogger Jamie Welsh Watson said ... (8:24 PM) : 

Love the kids feature! Awesome!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 PM) : 

She's 12 and she dresses better than me. I'm 30. Sigh.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 PM) : 

These children should come to my school and give a speech on the excitment of getting dressed!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:20 PM) : 

the girl on top is so adorable!! what a beautiful face! she just looks so happy! her tights are absolutely amazing. does anyone know where i can get some? i fit into childrens' sizes.

The second one is mario cornejo's kid.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 PM) : 

the second one is a pure rockstar shot


Blogger Shelley said ... (10:06 PM) : 

I LOVE to see kids expressing themselves in their clothes. These kids are obviously getting support for who they are and confident in their personalities. It's great to see their personal style reflected in their clothes. Too easy for girls to think they should wear what other girls are wearing.


Blogger American Otaku (E is my SL) said ... (10:09 PM) : 

the little boy is exactly what my son will look like some day... minus the tight jeans! just a pet peeve!


Blogger ROXY MARJ said ... (10:12 PM) : 

oh man...if I was this boys age, I would so be crushin right now! :)


Blogger Scott said ... (10:14 PM) : 

holyshit i have a kid. that 2nd one looks identical to me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 PM) : 

i wonder if these kids actually have thier own style and are amazing or if thier parents just have great style and dress thier kids


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 PM) : 

good grief! they look great!


Blogger The Comet said ... (11:37 PM) : 

These girls are such visions of effortless Manhattan-child precociousness. I love it. The hatted one is like some contemporary Annie Hall street urchin with a kid's card to Barney's.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 PM) : 

that lil boy looks like he shuld belong in california, he dresses like a cali boy


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (12:00 AM) : 

wow, the kids are definitely alright in NYC.

They have it so good, they don't even know..but more then likely nowadays, they do! Their people before they even become kids lol!

The little chicklet's tights are the cat's pajamas!


Blogger Angel said ... (12:35 AM) : 

The purple/blue little girl is just an absolute dollbaby! The expression on her face is priceless.
The second kiddo is cooler than I ever thought about being at that age. Great shots!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:26 AM) : 

You know, that first picture of the girl in purple is really a stunning outfit but...

I sort of hate seeing this. I suppose these kids might be just at the age where they might do this by themselves, but I have a strong feeling it's their parents that force this on them and decide what they wear. This age is maybe ok, and it's good for youth to develop their own style, but I hate seeing 3,4,5,6 year olds dressed in elaborate adult outfits that their parents have obviously prepared. It gets them too worried about image at an age where they should be wearing dirty old sweats and playing in parks finding worms.

hate to be the serious one... again perhaps these children are old enough and have made this choice for themself, but just wanted to make that point for all sartorialists - don't force your sense of style on your young kids... let them be kids for awhile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:37 AM) : 

<3 the who...I work at MoMA and let me tell you...parent's that take their children there sure know how to dress them as well.

wow..i'm blown away.
if only i had style when i was that age! aha.
i especially like the boy's outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 AM) : 

These kids are divine! Their personality exudes in their outfits, even if their parents had influence in them!


Blogger Sarah said ... (5:33 AM) : 

the second one is excellent!!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:39 AM) : 

I'm in love with the first little purple fairy...but I'd hate to think that this kids are daily made to loose their valuable time in making looks and poses instead of playing, running and having fun...Are there really parents who reinforce image slavery in their children at such a young age? That's messed up!!


Blogger David said ... (6:46 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:34 AM) : 

You out there wondering if kids can have "their own" style: I can certify that YES, they can! And I truly believe that these kids don't have parents who dresses them up. The style thing lies in their personal choices, maybe in just the one thing a parent would take away because not "perfect". I myself tend to be to matchy-matchy with my girls aged 7 and 8 - But I have realised that their own sense of style is better then my trying to make them cool, so they pretty much find their own way. With some strange results, of course, but most of the time ok and from time to time just brilliant.
As are these two!
Love, Cath

before i was not a fan of fashion kids cause i was selfish! and i would not heard about the new trend of show/street kids influences bla bla bla but now i like to see how they give life to the garment. So great pics!!


Blogger Gia said ... (7:47 AM) : 

kids are always a good way of inspiration and when they wear something like this it means even more...we all should see the world in colors:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:21 AM) : 

the child in the second photograph looks a bit like paul mccartney!!

either way, fantastic style :)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

they've absolutely got it going on. I'd love to hang out with them for a day and see where their inspiration comes from... parents? playground!? <3 love it.


Blogger Fannah said ... (10:26 AM) : 

both are amazing but i can't get over the color scheme of the first.. an those tights! and the bag! the dress! she's pretty much what i'd want to have for a daughter.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

wow. i wonder if they dress themselves or are products of their chic parents??


Blogger Un Monito said ... (10:43 AM) : 

Great photos Scott! You really do bring out the best in people - Love the jump!! Geez, I sure wish I had this kind of style going on when I was this age - I don't think that my Mr. T fatigue pants would have cut it.


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (10:44 AM) : 

good sense of style starts early. cute kids! i wonder if they put these ensembles together, or if they had parental help...from the photos, they have a certain attitude that says "this is all me". bravo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 AM) : 

first time to realize how fresh purple can be ... <3


Blogger Manja said ... (12:31 PM) : 

I definitely wasn't dressed that well when I was their age. 90s style...plastic sandals, rather embarassing haha :D

Very well put. And though one should NEVER judge children, their parents are another matter. The adorable child in the bottom pic clearly has been dressed as a mini-me hipster by her parents. It's a little offputting. But, clearly, both great kids.


Blogger Gillian said ... (3:33 PM) : 

can we be friends? i wish i was that cool when i was little.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (3:37 PM) : 

to anon 1:26-
As the parent of a 7 year old girl and 8 year old boy, I can testify that (some) kids definitely have their own style at that age. My daughter has been dressing herself like a mini Lynn Yaeger since the age of 2, with crazy color combos and interesting layers.
My son favors a plaid fedora and patent leather loafers for all occasions, and recently asked for a gold tooth and a monocle for his birthday. Obviously, the parents have to buy the clothes, but you'd be surprised what some kids can put together on their own.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 AM) : 

i just love what the first child is wearing. she looks angelic. the colors just pop with brilliance, not to mention that she is full of joy. so much personality physically -through her beautiful smile- and sartorially through the mix of patterns.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:45 AM) : 

It's a bit worrying that so many adults on here approve;
Kids doing their thing style wise, misunderstood by their parents is a good way to push things forward.

A generational difference is a good thing as there's nothing more depressing than a child dressed identikit to their parents.

AND... OI SART! Didn't you take any shots in London???


Blogger Styloholic! said ... (4:52 AM) : 

Very nice pics!
loved the colors in the first pic!:)


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:03 AM) : 

i know the little man on the bottom, and i can assure you he is a free spirit/force of nature! he has NOT been dolled up by his parents, he has been nurtured to think for himself...


Blogger oh I miss it said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I like how the little girl's coat is falling off of her arms, like she couldn't hold still long enough for her mother to get it all the way on her before she ran outside, looking for adventure. That's what I see.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:34 PM) : 

I think the Obama girls will encourage a new direction in children dressing cool, but like kids, not little grown ups...

wow if you like the 2nd kid, come to cali... we breed this kind of cute look!!!

Love the color combo in #1. If she got dressed without mom's help, then she's someone you should keep an eye on, Sart!


Blogger About Me said ... (2:54 PM) : 

i love that splash of purple.


Blogger MarieAnn said ... (4:50 PM) : 

Now this makes me feel old and expired... Back when I was that age I was styling barbie dolls rather than myself, paying no attention whatsoever to my frizzy hair or my mismatched clothes.. Where's a time machine when you want it, huh..

I love the vibe of these pictures...if you can't dress so adventurously when you're a kid, when can you ever? I wish I had done that more as a kid, look for my own style.
Only thing - "alright" is incorrect. It's spelled "all right". Consult The Elements of Style.

Notice the complicated lacing on the 2nd child’s gray shoes. Are they sold that way or has someone altered them?

Blogger Jim Coyle said ... (9:37 PM) : 

Picking your own clothes and having fun with style is admirable at any age, but I hope at this age that the only opinion they care about is their own. You can say that if you can't experiment with style as a child when can you, but the other side of that coin is this: if you can't dress like crap and have fun without worrying about appearance and grass stains as a kid, when can you?
