Disheartened by Tallahassee's dearth of fashionable children's clothing, Anne Erikson founded My Kids A La Mode boutique, which received a nod from Tallahassee Magazine's Readers Choice poll. Across gleaming hardwood floors, curlicued wrought-iron racks and sleek white shelves parade ensembles for babies, girls up to size 12, and boys up to size 10. Labels flaunt brand names including Deux Par Deux, Haute Baby, and Alphabet, whose threads identify important tykes like a direct phone line to Clifford. An assortment of playthings dapple a cozy children's play area, where a vibrant mural surrounds youngsters with a jungle scene of swinging monkeys and a prancing lion. Cheery staffers bundle items, many sourced from environmental textiles and dyes, for online orders with free shipping.
