Halloween is long over, but Rapunzel didn’t get the memo.
If getting her majesty out of that glittery getup has become a royal pain, it’s time to give her a look you’ll both love with Curio + Kind. The new line takes little ladies from dress-up to dressed up without any foot-stomping objections.
Partners Natasha Barrett and Anita Pocsik balance childhood imagination with adult styling to create fantasy clothing that works in your reality. Though the luxe separates are sparkly enough for the fanciest Nancy, the sleek silhouettes and subdued colors make for perfectly appropriate winter party wear.
Our favorites include the sequin leopard dress and ostrich feather skirt, while our lady-in-waiting went gaga for the sequin baby bubble skirt. Top it off with the jeweled neckline jersey tee, and you’ve got an ensemble fit for a queen.
Available at Tough Cookies Children’s Boutique, 13638 Ventura Boulevard, at Woodman Avenue, Sherman Oaks (818-990-0972 or shoptoughcookies.com); Fred Segal Melrose, 8118 Melrose Avenue, at North Crescent Heights Boulevard, West Hollywood (323-651-3698), $34-$102. To see styles, go to curioandkind.com.
|Winter means family dinners, snowball fights, and hot chocolate by the fireplace. Keep the little ones warm in the best pajamas, coats, hats, dresses, sweaters, and boots of the season.|
