Meet your vintage loving hostesses…
Welcome to Modern Kiddo, the ultimate resource for all the things you loved as a child—served up with a modern twist! Alix and Dottie have been trail blazers on the vintage kiddo scene and believe you should bring the best of your past to your child’s present. These two goofy San Francisco mamas love bold colors, quirky patterns and smart design. Their spunky, fun-loving attitude has made Modern Kiddo a favorite go-to destination for retro and design loving parents everywhere.
By day, Alexandra (“Alix”) is an Associate Creative Director at Goodby, Silverstein and Partners. (Check out her work here). She is obsessed with the 60s and 70s and has a massive collection of vintage clothing. Leslie (“Dottie”) is Director of PR for CBS Interactive and swoons over the 40s and 50s. She collects vintage craftbooks and vintage eye glasses. Modern Kiddo is dedicated to their two little fashion muses, Wolfgang (aka Wolfie) and Georgia (aka the Peach).

HOW WE MET:
We’re often asked, “How did you two kooky gals meet??” Dottie met Alix when she became a Devil-Ette, San Francisco’s premier synchronized 60s-style go-go dance group! (Nothing too saucy, mind you— we’re rated PG-13!) For years we were shakin’ and shimmying the night away as our alter egos, The Smarty Pants and The Starlet. We’ve hung up our horns these days, but our friendship is as go-go-riffic as ever!
