Free People for Wee People!

This weekend was so blustery, rainy and cold we could barely drag ourselves out of the house.  Saturday's whistling wind kept me under the covers until almost noon...too lazy (and freezing) to get out of bed and race down the hallway to turn up the heat.  Wind + rain + cold = perfect conditions for an internet shopping storm (did you see that Rebecca Taylor dress from Saturday's post?? help.me.now).  It's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the fact that Christmas is around the corner, and I have approximately 2 gifts purchased. Eeps!

Rather than get too wound up swooning and crying over things no longer available in my size, I found myself shopping for my niece who is basically amazing and, at 5 years of age, already possessing a very unique sense of style.

 She's a little bit hippie (with a side of sparkly Doc Martens boot).
A whole lotta lovely.
 And can rock a self-chosen mix of animal prints 
better than any girl I know.
(leopard print juicy couture jacket c/o auntie carrie)
First day outfit and she threw on that jacket and the zebra flats fearlessly!! 
(swallows homesick lump in throat)

Her eclectic taste and love for things outside the regular rules of kid fashion led me straight to Free People's new Wee People line.  It is so fun and completely Free People-ish...I can't wait to pick up a few things.  Check out some of the items I'm eyeballing:

They're like mini boyfriend jeans!!
My niece is not so much a denim fan yet though :(
She does, however, LOVE fur!
Can you imagine this thrown over that T and jeans?
 Or how about the Thumbelina Sweater Coat to mix it up?
How adorable!!
She could swing this little Fringe Purse on over top...
Toss on her Metallic Clogs
and be off to school, gymnastics or a rad birthday party!!

Then again it IS winter in Canada so she may have to carry
those fabulous clogs along and put them on when she arrives.
But that's no problem.  She can still keep warm and 
in super style with these Wooly Mammoth Boots!!!
Karl Lagerfeld?  Are you out there?

I don't know about you, but I think Free People has knocked it out of the park with this new line.  It is almost entirely sold out.  My fingers are crossed for re-stocking within the next couple weeks so that a few treasures can be added just in time for Christmas.  If you have little girls to buy for take a hop over to their site and get ready to have some fun.  Giving gifts is fun as it is, but when you can really get creative for kids it's even better.

Happy Monday everyone!  Anyone done with Holiday shopping?  I'm almost afraid to ask...

Oh my gosh, your niece is sooo sweet! Almost as sweet as mine!! :D Truly a little fashionista with excellent taste. The last pic of her looks like taken from the bambini vogue! :D
I adore every single one of those pieces you chose. This coat! Those mammoth boots! Oh and you already have 2 gifts!? Lucky you! I don´t have one but a very long list... well.. still four weeks to go, enough time!

Have a good week and keep the heater on!

So much cute! It almost makes me wish we had nieces and nephews to shop for. Almost. I don't need anyone else to shop for and none of our siblings have any business bringing children into the world yet, but that's another story. Anyway.

(FINISHED my holiday shopping? Is that some sort of sick joke? I finished decorating the guest bathroom TWICE because Jared has such questionable taste we might need counseling now. It was a rough weekend.)

Dawn said...

Whoa!
Those Wee People dress better than I do!

(She is one cute chickie:)
And no...not even half done the shopping............

Signe said...

Oh wow, your niece is too cute and very stylish indeed!
Have a lovely Monday :)

Indie.Tea said...

Awww, your niece is a little fashionista in the making! She's adorable and obviously has a great and original sense of her clothes.
And the Wee People Fuzzy Fairytale Coat is too cute!

annelise said...

Little girls in leopard print!! Holy moly, that is gorgeous.

Ha, 'started' Christmas shopping. You're crazy. That doesn't get done until about two days before the big day.

Leia said...

Your niece is ADORABLE! I have a feeling the lucky little thing is going to get some Free People goodies for Christmas :P

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ohmigosh she is ADORABLE; and she needs those Wooly Mammoth Boots. Come to think of it, so do I. Do they make them in adult sizes? :P

Taylor said...

She is soooo chic!! (And adorable!) I can just see her looking through these pictures when she is older and remarking on how fabulously she dressed as a little kid. Love this post, so cute!

Closet Fashionista said...

She is ADORABLE!!!!!! So cute that Free People makes little kids clothes :D

Taylor said...

She is ABSOLUTELY the cutest ever!!!! I just bought my besties 6 month old, my pseudo Niece the cutest little jeggins and leopard turtle neck from gap kids! Check them out too, if you mix and match you can totally get the same look!!!! But these are great!

Cara said...

Have you entered this Giveaway?!

Marie a la Mode said...

Your niece is so cute! That last picture almost looks like something you'd see in US Magazine in that section with celebrities and their kids. A future fashionista : )Are you coming home for Christmas to see her?

I love Free People, they have a section at The Bay except it's super expensive : (

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Just stumbled on your blog! AH THIS IS BY FAR THE CUTEST. It looks like she's a superstar, and these are paparazzi pictures of her fashionable day. LOVE IT.

I definitely want to have a girl baby (not any time soon!!) JUST to dress them up and get all these "awww she's so cute" whenever I'm walking with her. Does that sound vain? Um...

Anna Jane said...

oh my gosh, she is an angel. i think she should set up an arranged marriage with my nephew jack. he is very cute, i assure you, and also sensitive (the whole package.) i have no nieces, only nephews, but would like one someday purely for the shopping aspect.

hip hip gin gin said...

She is SO adorable!!! And very lucky to have a fashionista aunt to shop for her! I have seen so many cute clothing options for kids lately I swear I am going to start collecting pieces and storing them away for my future kids.

Daisy said...

your niece is adorable. I can't believe someone so little can be so stylish! I love the Wee People line - to bad i have no little girls to buy for. (I have yet to start holiday shopping. eeeeksssss.)

Kara said...

No way is that your niece. She's clearly a celebrity's child - look at her posing! The outfits! The sass! Seriously, what a cute kid. She's lucky you're going to start a trend of spoiling the crap outta her...start 'em young, as they say :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Your niece is so adorable:) She is so cute and stylish...Love the collection
Wish you a wonderful Monday, sweetie
Hugs and kisses

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Your niece completely rocks the animal prints. She is a doll!

Nikki said...

So cute! Little girls are so fun to shop for. I wish I had been that fearless when I was younger. But I wouldn't wear anything but leggings.

Marcie said...

Adorable! I love her. She is soooo cute. :)

I am in the midst of x-mas shopping. Luckily, Jimmy and I have cut down the list of who we need to buy for, and we give all the kids in our family cash so that is easy!! And after how horrific the mall was yesterday, I am shopping online.

Alleen said...

Carrie... yes, any tips from Chef would be great!!! Thank you!!! xoxo

Valerie said...

Carrie, your niece is absolutely precious. Those zebra flats??? Do they come in my size? And that fur coat from Wee People is adorable! I've actually never checked out their kids line, but I'm going over to look at it now. I love buying clothes for my nieces, it's so much fun. I did some internet shopping too over the weekend (christmas gifts) and some in store pickups as well. I'm about halfway done, but dying to finish before December so I can relax and drink egg nog all month!

So the green ring arrived on Friday and it's FABULOUS!!! I'll post pics soon. ;)

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Your niece is soo cute!! And I love this line. I want to get stuff for my nieces now!
I haven't even started with holiday shopping! Which is making me a little nervous now...

Josie said...

First of all, Carrie, your niece is positively GORGEOUS. Seriously, she is so cute. And what a sense of style -- I adore those little zebra flats. The Wee People line is perfect for her! I love those little boyfriend jeans. I can't WAIT until I have little nieces to shop for.
Re: the holiday shopping... Uh... Haven't started. I expect that once finals are over I'll get home and spend literally the whole week before Christmas bouncing from the mall to Target and back.

how adorable! looks like you have a little fashionista on your hands

Freelance Shop-A-Holic said...

I have a few drafted posts of my kids outfits. As soon as I have time I'll post. As much as I love FP, I wouldn't pay those prices! Sale racks are my best friend with 3 girls!! Very cute looks! I could buy outfits all day long for my younger two but they always wear the pieces with soemthing other than what I meant for them to wear it with. Lol

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Okay, seriously? Leopard hoodie and metallic ballet flats?! Amazeballs!

style'n said...

Your niece is seriously too cute and I have no idea Free people had a clothing line for kids. I have to check it out. I am learning all kinds of great things over here.(p.s. I am still drooling over the jewelry)

Jessica said...

Carrie, she is precious! I loove that leopard hoodie, just too cute for words. Free People for Wee People rocks my world, haha. I love looking at children's clothes, even if I don't plan on having my own for a good 5-10 years haha!

Kristin said...

I was looking at the Free People holiday catalogue last night and dying over the fact that I don't have a little girl to dress up!

Chiara said...

Carrie your niece is gorgeous, and sooo stylish!!
Loving the outfits, she has a great aunt!

Allison said...

Oh my goodness! She is so cute!! I want a little girl exactly like her.. I need my Ken doll husband because I think that little girl might be Barbie and Ken's daughter..

PhotoPuddle said...

She is so cute! Great outfits. I swear children's clothes are getting cuter and cuter. I am starting to get rather jealous of my daughter's clothes and she's only two for goodness sake!

la petite coquine said...

The line is adorable, but nearly as cute as your niece! I love that she's so fearless, and obviously has a terrific sense of self! I wonder where she got that...

Kara said...

Ok, this post is adorable, and so is your niece! I love the leopard you bought for her. And the Wee People furry jacket is too cute. I kinda want it for me!!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

oh my she is SOOOO cute are you kidding me? lourdes doesn't have anything on her! :0 What a little fashion starlet, aw. I'm over Doc Martens but never thought of them for children and that is genius, they look adorable. The Free People kid line is beautiful, as is basically everything they do and touch... I am scared for when I have children, I hope I don't go nuts!

Emilie said...

Cute!!!

Bridget said...
