This week we have a special little sweetie from Springfield, Missouri! Her mama is the stylish and creative Amy who clearly has an appreciation for the days of yesterdayâ€”she gave her the awesomely, old-timey name Mathilda, which is just about the cutest thing ever! Little Miss MathildaÂ has four siblings, including two older sisters, who provide plenty of sassy hand-me-downs for this stylish little gal.Â Her fun wardrobe is made up of lots of vintage and thrift-store treasures with, of course, the occasional new item thrown in for good measure! When you see how cute she is, you’ll die.Â Let the Walzing Mathilda begin!
CUTE! Love the moccasin booties and adorable overalls!
Tee hee. A little bit dirndl chic, a little bit Red Riding Hood and a whole lotta CUTE.
The long stripey legwarmer knee socks make this outfit adorable.
Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!!! Tutu and vintage roller skates? Hellllo. This is SO Mathilda’s album cover in about 10 years.
Chillin’ with her best girls….I love her red dress and look at that smile!
This is the most adorable rain combo. The sweet buttercup yellow vintage dressie and then those totally utilitarian wellies is AWESOME.
Mathilda is one of those awesome little hybrid girlsâ€”she loves fun girlie things like roller skating and playing dress-up, but she also likes to climb trees and hang out with her four urban chickens. CHICKENS??? WOW! Â I love it! Â The lovely Mathilda has a sweet kitty cat named Casper that she looves and her mama says she charms the neighbors with daily visits to cheer them up! I am pretty taken with this little lady’s styleâ€”don’t you think she’s the bees knees?? Amy, thanks for sharing your gorgeous girlie with us!

OMG, seriously. She is too cute for words. That Tutu-Roller Skate number is just too fabulous for words. I hope that mom & dad have that framed somewhere in the house.
OK, I can’t like–my jaw dropped when I saw the tutu rollerskating cuteness. Matilda–you had me at hello!
And the crochet seventies fringe look–amazing!
Dirnl chic–Alix, you kill me!
that is one gorgeous little girl!!!!!
this girl is my fashion icon! what a cutie! i have those overalls on the top that i almost listed in my shop…..but i think i will keep them for pip!
Isn’t she a cutie pie?? Amy what more can you tell us about the little Red Riding Hood outfit?? I love it!
this kid is ADORABLE. i love that she looks super comfy in her fashion and you can totally see she has a say in picking stuff out 🙂 LOVE her!
That little wool cap and skirt also came with a cute red cape (the tag says its from Germany). I found it at one of my favorite thrift stores here in Springfield for $3.00!
Honestly, it was one of those dumb luck “finds”, that if I never found anything like that again, I would not be sad…..realizing that kind of luck only happens once.
Thanks for all the sweet comments!
Mathilda is our niece. We are proud to say that we live down the street. Mathilda is hip, just like her mom. We love them very much! Thank you for posting her!
omg amy, we want to come THRiFT shop with YOU at once! olive wants to be in LINE for hand me downs before PeNel…..sooooo cute!
hold on, Amy and Kristen, you guys know each other?? How can your town hold ALL THAT CUTE??
as an aside, i’m feelin’ like we need to start a Modern Kiddo Community boardâ€”with a KIDDO CLOTHING SWAP section!!! 😉
Totally adorable! And that smile is stellar.
Actually Kristen lives i Tulsa…..we live in Springfield. She knows my sister. Funny, huh?
A clothing swap section is a REAAALY good idea!
Swapping sizes would be fun as the kids grow.
She’s so cute! I love that green and white cape – any chance you made that? If so, I’d love to know where the pattern’s from 🙂
