Christina, one of a kind…

This next photo came to us through a dear friend, Melissa, who is an experienced world traveler and an alluring writer. While visiting Panama this summer, she photographed the lovely Christina amongst an indigenous community. Since we can’t travel there ourselves, we are living vicariously through Melissa and her keen eye for beautiful things around the world. Thank you Melissa! We look forward to seeing more amazing children of the world!

Christina is a 7 year old beauty who is actually going on 50 & who lives in Queens, NY. In her free time she practices African dance with the Purelements: An Evolution in Dance in Brooklyn as well as the Irish Jig. She seems to have a talent for athletics of any kind- swimming and running to name a couple.  She eats at tables with the adults and fits in just fine – one of the many skills acquired from a mother who believes her daughter is a child of the world, not to be defined by her parents.  As such, she has an affinity for rugged travel through countries like Panama and beyond. This is Christina with the Kuna Yala people on the boarder of Panama and Costa Rica. They believed she was one of them and dressed her in their traditional clothing to prove it. She was a celebrity amongst this tribe of naturalists and will be honored by all good people she runs into along her path. – Melissa

It was a BIG day when we traveled to DC to style the kids for Parents Magazine’s cover shoot with First Lady Michelle Obama.

The kids were super excited and not only did we get a visit from the President, but Bo made a surprise appearance too.

Security was tight  and the whole shoot lasted only a couple hours but the memories will stay with us for a while!

At only 20 months old, Miss Avery is the most stylish jet setter out there! After a trip to the Bahamas and California, Avery spent her first Spring break in Palm Beach for some much needed R&R. However, all she did was run and run! She loved feeding the turtles in the lake, putting around the golf course and swimming in the pool. The only way to get her to stand still for this adorable photo, were some M&M’s…ahhh, the power of chocolate!

This Mini’s got pizazz! Juliet knows how to put together an outfit, from her boots to her Big Apple Red nail polish (just like her Mommy)! Her Siaomimi cotton dress is the sweetest thing around, but don’t let the flowers fool you! Even when the dress comes off, the boots stay on. This Mini means business!

Little Miki has some big style! At only two years old, this sass-pot insists on dressing herself and posed from all angles. At the moment, Miki is very into super-heros, and you can usually spot her donning some kind of paraphernalia, like a Batman T-Shirt. Today, however, she keeps her superhero obsession a secret by wearing Superman undies. This girl has got spunk!

She Was Definitely Born With It!

Little Harbour is the first born to Mini A La Mode’s Alexis and likely the most stylish 2 yr-old in her pre-school! With Mom styling kids for magazine covers and advertising gigs on a regular basis it is near impossible for the fashion not to trickle down! Harbour is happiest dressing and undressing her own baby dolls named Jenna – she has 14 of them and they’re all named Jenna!
