Little Style Finder is so excited to introduce you to Hambro & Miller- a new online shop owned and operated by Anna Phillips – selling traditional hand-knitted clothing for children ages 0-4 years. Each piece is made in the UK using the finest of yarns. Their wonderful knitters are based all over the country and, between them, have hundreds of years of experience and expertise in the craft.
The wears are absolute perfection- from the gorgeously cozy warrior booties with suede laces to the vests and cardigans and two-tone hats, each piece is lovingly made with 100% supersoft baby alpaca, which by the way, is 7 times warmer than regular wool- perfect for the cold winter we just had!
Here are some of our faves mixed with vintage finds.
As the mom of a 5 year old little girl and 9 month old baby boy, I love searching for stylish essentials to mix and match with the kids’ current wardrobes (which, I might add, are much larger than mine).

A Size 2 Small was developed by two friends who shared the same idea of how they wanted kids to dress. That idea was adult styled clothing, sized to fit little ones.
This small online boutique is carefully curated by the pair. Our favorite part- they hand-pick each item ranging from shoes, clothing, accessories, decor and more – but only items they truly feel they would purchased for themselves.
And so it goes. A Size 2 Small will continue to pick and hunt for items both old and new to give your kids an amazing selection of items to wear and use. Vowing to find items that you’d wear or use – if only they weren’t a size (or more) too small.
Don’t forget to check out the FOUND items- the result of their compulsive thrifting and garage sale-ing habit. A Size 2 Small loves the thrill of the hunt and takes pride in finding one-of-a-kind items for your little ones.

The collection features the signature pipopipo friends – whimsical characters- Aster, Busby, Lin, Mimi, Ruby and Hana- epitomizing all the best about childhood: fun, adventure and imagination.
Additionally, these characters truly come to life through its interactive Web site, an online entertainment destination featuring storytelling and age-‐appropriate content for children 5 and under. Original comics are also posted daily on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
Cissy Wears is a children’s concept store aimed at design-centric parents who do not want to compromise on their taste because they have children. Predominantly focusing on children’s fashion, Cissy Wears stocks brands with an emphasis on quality, fuss-free design.
Based on little Cissy and her love of lilac and leopard print, their brands are not garish or cutesy. But they do love rabbits, deer, tigers, horses, moustaches, cake and ice cream!
The store also specializes in vintage children’s wear to appeal to those who want unique style, but also to cater for the more thrift-conscious local parent who enjoy the thrill of finding quality cool second hand clothes to suit their budget.
Cissy Wears is online with a fully operational e-commerce site fulfilling mail order on a national and international basis, with same day local delivery.
There is also a specialist children’s hairdresser operating from the store, with a super cool chair that will see your kids begging to have their hair cut!
Name: Nicola Eyre, Owner
Please tell us a bit about yourself: A tattooed, rocking mum of 2 from London who worked in the music industry for years in marketing – looking after bands, touring, doing photo shoots, artwork, video shoots, artwork, styling etc.
What inspired you to start cissywears.com? I said for years that I wanted to open a kids shop but it had to be in a certain spot. One day a “FOR RENT” sign was put up in the window. That was that. 3 months later I’d quit my job and was preparing to open. The website and the store go hand in hand, although the website tends to attract the more fashion focused buyers, whereas the store is more gift-oriented.
Where did the name come from? It comes from my daughter, Cissy. Every day I used to text my best friend Sarah a picture of her outfit and the texts always started “Cissy wears…” in a take off of magazine fashion spreads.
What do you look for in clothing/accessories companies when buying for the boutique? It’s pretty simple. Would I dress my kids in it? If not, then I won’t have it in my store. I like a certain colour palette, and certain styles and I stick to it. For example, I don’t really like primary colours, and I hate cutesy, appliqué animal prints. I think the styles I pick reflect my background – it’s clothes for kids that rock (or parents that still do!).
What trends are you seeing for Spring 2013? Bicycles. Everything seems to have bicycles on it!
What are some of your favorite brands and why? Mini Rodini – I love their cool prints, and the quality of their clothes. They are the reason I got into kids fashion. MarMarCopenhagen – I pretty much have one rule – leopard print with everything! And MarMar do the best leopard print, hands down. LUCKYBOYSUNDAY – everybody needs at least one piece of luckyboysunday in their life. The softest, most adorable things. I am totally in love. I bought my whole family luckyboysunday for christmas!
Any up and coming brands we should be on the look out for? There’s some great new brands coming from the UK. Beau Loves has been one of my biggest sellers this season. I also love Indikidual – especially the fun banana print, and Poco Nido baby shoes are really cool. I’m also hoping Collegien slipper socks will let me sell online soon. They are fabulous and I always get people ordering them via Instagram!
What advice would you give to parents shopping for their children? Do you find that most parents take the same stylistic approach with dressing their children as they do with themselves? Don’t be afraid to put babies in black. Keep it simple. Mix your prints with quality basics. Pink is fine in moderation. Dress boys in leggings. Don’t go kids clothes shopping with men – they drain the joy out of it! Who cares if they don’t care what they look like or if they’ll grow out of it in a few months!
