Little Miss Thing sat on her swing
Wearing her Leila & Grey.
In bright print dresses
And bows in her tresses.
Her outfits were perfect for play.
You know the story. Two old friends with a passion for fashion start a children’s clothing line.
But keep reading: You’ll find it hard to resist the glam factor of the zinnia-print Ava shorts or the flapper-style Coco dress.
The premier collection launched this spring (in girls’ sizes 12 months to 8 years old), so you won’t see every other gal twirling her way through the park in these threads. Plus, the unique fabric combos and pleasing price points ($22 to $74) give this tale a twist.
And a very happy ending.
