As an auntie and big cousin to my family and friends kiddies, I’m always on the hunt for fashionable threads. Being in the fashion industry, the bar with my gift buying has been set high! I’ve noticed many selections for infant and toddler girls wear, but there’s been a lack of great boys wear. The demand is high and it’s nice to find a great source in our own backyard.
