Before specialty shops, parents relied on shrink rays to clothe their children in school-mandated cocktail gowns, power suits, and groovy leisurewear. Delve into kid-sized style with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of kids' apparel from Bourbon Street Boutique's online shop.
Owner Michell swathes Bourbon Street Boutique in whimsical and vibrant kids' clothing, personalizing her pieces to match the wearer's desires. Festoon infants and toddlers in splashy ruffles with capris ($16), skirts ($20), and ruffled tops ($16), all emblazoned in zebra, damask, or leopard prints. Rhinestoned declarations of little- or big-sisterhood on a cotton shirt ($18) thwart sibling rivalry, while crown-embellished bows($6) enhance a coif and distract from tic-tac-toe-markered faces. Petite feet can wrap themselves in charming Wee Squeak shoes($30), available in multitudinous shades and adorned with puffy flowers.
Bourbon Street's personalized shirts cater to all genders and names by lovingly slapping monikers next to sassy sayings and rhinestone-encrusted designs. Couture-crafter Michell can whip up any other alterations and color changes at the drop of an email to suit her customers' specific dreams, including that recurring one about a monkey waving an eggroll.
