for the babes :: Estella

Is there anything more adorable than baby clothes? Little dresses, petite jeans, tiny chucks… why is it that everything seems cuter in miniature? In my quest for unique clothing/art/toys for the babes, I stumbled upon Estella. I suppose if I’d had children while living in New York, I may have already heard of them. But alas… I now look from afar. Estella is the product of a husband and wife team who were looking to fill a void in the children’s clothing market. The store is filled with clothing chosen for its quality, beauty and character rather than their brand. Since opening in 2002 in NY’s Greenwich Village, Estella has become the go-to shop for stylish clothes, toys and gear for children.

At first glance, some of the prices might seem a little inflated. If there is one thing I’ve learned form my cousin T (2 beautiful daughters), it’s ‘don’t spend too much on baby clothes’;). Still, these little styles are too darn cute to pass up, and from what I’ve seen, some of them aren’t really that much more than what you’d find at Baby Gap. So, take a peek. Oo and Aah a little (you know you want to) and introduce yourself to Estella.

  1. what great picks! what we have learned in buying children’s clothing is less is more and its so nice to splurge on something you love and have them wear it a million times over then just buying for the sake of buying. Estella has such a unique mix of products!
