Vintage Kiddo Retro Roundup!

Did everyone get their fill of candy last night?  Was everyone’s treat or treating forays a success? The Peach’s first trick or treating experience was a success–only one minor meltdown where she sat in the street and refused to budge. But other than that she went to bed very happy with the fact that once a year she can get away for asking for candy from strangers.

But even Halloween couldn’t keep me away from finding a few treats and perhaps tricks to share with you all for the first vintage Kiddo round up of November!

Oh lawdy, this kitty top is so stinky cute, that if it is still here by tonight, I’m going to buy it for the Peach.  From Etsy seller, Fun with Puns!

I adore these olive buckle shoes. I just wish they came in my size! From eBay seller, Bibliowhiz.

Reversible coat. Red and gray gorgeousness! From eBay seller, mayo5050.

Suspenders are going to come back in style any day now, so best to prepare yourself now with this dandy pair of suspenders from Etsy seller PinkyAGoGo.  I totally dig the little rocking ’em with the skirt look on the packaging.

Gray sweaters can be rather granny, but this little girl sweater is so darling with the red flowers and sweet cabling to boot.  From Etsy seller, Spun Sugar Vintage.

Might I suggest this darling dress to anyone in who plans to celebrate Christmas in a warm weather place this fun little dress with side lace-ups. So much fun! From Etsy seller, TTCS.

Don’t have enough Orlon in your life? Solve that problem with this wonderful gray and yellow and orange sweater and pants set!  From Etsy seller, vintage tot spot.

I know the Dallas Cowboys are having a tough year so far, but perhaps this super fan Dallas Cowboy jacket. Again, from Etsy seller, vintage tot spot.

Overalls are I think the ultimate piece of clothing every boys should own.  And these blue and green stripey ones are a perfect addition.  From our girl, 3 Ring Circus.

All this little suit jacket needs is a pair of gray shorts and voila! Perfect dress up out for any dapper boy.  Thanks for finding it Lish!

Vintage Kiddo Retro Round Up.

What is it about weekends that seem to whip by so fast no matter how much or how little you do during those two glorious days?  I know there were bills to pay and dishes to wash, but the Peach needed a cuddle or two and I was more than happy to scoop her up.  It was so nice just to be home with my little family. But I did break away for some quality e-thrifting time.

So, on with the show!

How could anyone resist this sweet seventies boho chic prairie dress from eBay seller LauraBethandPaule? And with a starting bid of 99 cents–I know it will be picked up soon!

Who wouldn’t want to say aloha to this tiki-rific shirt for a wee lad?  Covered in boats and fishes–two things that any boy would be proud to wear!  From everyone’s favorite 3 Ring Circus!

I’m kinda crushing on this Winnie the Pooh button down shirt in glorious seventies poly.  And it is in one of those oh so elusive big girl size 12. I love how the circular balloon makes the most amazing pattern. Very wearable with some skinny jeans and converse kicks. From eBay seller ladyj49548.

Check out this tiny little jumper for a tiny little boy.  In navy, which I think is such an underrated color in children’s clothing.  Can’t you just see it with a cute little stripey shirt? I can! Hoo boy!  From Etsy seller,  Ms Tips!

Remember that early spring fashion trend that was all around Alice in Wonderland? Well, I’m sure this brilliant robin’s egg colored jacket would have been easy inspiration. Oh the puff sleeved goodness of this darling coat from our friends at the RobotParade4Kids.

I know. I know. I have cowboy problem.  I’m sure there is a group out there to help me get over it. But until then, I must share this vintage Health Tex gem with lassoing cowboys on the jacket. From Etsy seller The Baby Kitties. I know, that name kills me too.

Speaking of kitties, check out this spry little calico kitty that looks like it is going to hop of this sweet shirt!  The collar, the kitty, the calico, the cuffs,  the buttercup yellow. I’m in love.  From Etsy seller, Prairie Path Vintage.

Miss Lish–what magical place in Minneapolis do you do your thrifting? Seriously.  Because you always find theeee best vintage goodies like this deadstock size 7 boys shirt.

And this unbelievably adorable flower power two piece that could be worn separately as well for little girls!

Now, you know I love a good jon jon. It’s part of my love for all things vintage prep. But get a load of this gem.  I’m dying here–Lord & Taylors Mighty Mites brand. Trading out the madras for some Laugh-In.  Outstanding find, MyRepeatBoutique!

And one last goodie!  With school starting for some in a matter of weeks, this grand thermos would make any kiddo the talk of the lunch tables. I pity the fool who doesn’t buy it.

Sorry, I had to say it. Nice find Yoursmineours Vintage.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Meet Cam! Our Weekly Kiddo.

Happy Friday everyone.  Let’s just jump right in, shall we? This week we have the adorable Campbell. Oh little Campbell, what a cutie you are! We don’t get that many boy submissions for Weekly Kiddo (hint hint, ye momma’s of boys) but when we do they are CUTE as can be. This little man lives hails from Hotlanta and is a big boy at 3 years old. His mama is the super lovely Danielle of Thompson Family Blog—a fantastic bloggie filled with gorgeous photos and boat loads of inspiration. She is wildly creative so it’s no surprise that her little guy dresses amazingly. These first two photos are from when he was a liddle kiddo, but he was so stylin’ I just had to show ya. Let’s begin!

This rockin’ jumper ensemble is from  Etsy seller Katrina Kaye. That little tufty of hair kills me!

How cute is this look? Just like Cam’s mama, we’re big fans of the Scandinavian inspired prints from Smafolk at Ittikid.

This adorable retro-repro Beatles shirt came from our fave big brand, Target.

A few weeks ago we did a designer spotlight on the amazing Mirjam of  Kinchi so I was thrilled to see Cam sportin’ the Kinchi too!

How cute is this kiddo??

I fell in love with this little shirt—it’s rather reminiscent of one of my fave Euro brands, Oilily. How cool to find out this came from Etsy seller Little Overcoat and is entirely recycled and reworked. Fabulous! The sweet fedora style hat is from Target (men’s dept.). Wolfie has a bunch of hats from the grownup dept too—what can I say, he’s got a big ol noggin’ just like his mama!

Aw, the littlest cowpoke is wearing a totally vintage cowboy outfit. LOVE THIS! His dashing big brother Cooper is making a guest appearance as Harry Potter. Danielle, your boys are too much fun….so cute!

Aw, here is the lovely Danielle with her little man. Such a sweet pair.

Danielle tells us that Cam is a total sweetie. He is really into playing with toys like cars and animals, but his absolute favorite these days are trains—especially Thomas the Tank Engine. When snack time rolls around his favorites are chocolate and popsicles. Cam is very close to his big brother and loves to run around and laugh with him. It’s pretty clear this is one sweet little boy. Cam, we luv ya!

Vintage Kiddo: Retro Roundup!

Well, it’s that time of the week, where all things awesome and vintage and kiddo are found right here for your viewing and shopping pleasure. Yuppers, I’m talking about the return of Modern Kiddo’s Vintage Kiddo Retro Roundup! Yeehaa! Did you miss it? We sure did and we’ve got some extremely sassy and sunny bits of vintage goodness to share with you today.

What is cuter than a little mouse sniffing a flower? How about an applique of a little mouse sniffing a flower on this sweet little girl’s dress! Bonus points because it’s a Nanette and I love that brand something FIERCE for little girl cuteness.

Thanks for the uber find, eBay seller, UberMom!

Now that the weather is officially springy, it’s time to think about heading to the beach and who wouldn’t want to with this great vintage kiddo beach robe/cover-up!

This great Superman pajama shirt would be great to wear during the daytime! Who wouldn’t want to show off Superman’s mad skills at punching a plane?  And really, it wouldn’t be too unusual to wear a pajama shirt out during the day? Why my friend Rosemary went to classes on the first day of college wearing her pajamas! Hee hee!!

Who wouldn’t sleep tight in that, ebay seller, Cowtown’s Revenge.

I am in love with this Petite Joue sweater and this petite cutie wearing it!

I am SO coming back to your Etsy shop, Kidretro!

Who wouldn’t want to sail away in my beautiful balloon–if it were made of gingham and on the leg of this sweet little jumper?  And it’s a Health Tex brand too!

Keep an eye on this eBay seller, ktjetta. She has the eye for finding great Health Tex goodies!

This mod smock features a terrific mosaic flower, that would be perfect with a little pair of salt water sandals. Perfect to pop over a bathing suit for that necessary beach trip to the ice cream parlor. I’ll take two scoops of cuteness with sprinkles, please!

I’m obsessed with your great find, eBay seller, ObsessedWithVintage.

I love a guaybera or Mexican wedding shirt on little boys for special occasions when the weather turns nice. And this pint-size vintage guaybera shirt would be perfect.  I love the colorful embroidery panels too. The little guitar is killer.  Wouldn’t it be cute to  have your ring bearer saunter down the aisle in this?

Great find indeed, eBay seller, G8tfindz!

Who wouldn’t be mad for plaid, if plaid is as wonderfully retro and pure Marsha Brady as this vintage Sears & Roebucks drop waist dress? I am in love love love with that green! And don’t even get me started on the faux undershirt awesomeness.

Etsy seller, Sunflower Grace, I want to go shopping with you!

Normally one doesn’t think of Winnie the Pooh as a western cowboy figure, but clearly someone did and the results are pure fabulousness–as you can see in this great tan Western shirt.

I wanna saddle up with your great finds, Etsy seller, Robynsetsy!

Snow plow applique on a little sun suit–irony was never so button cute! Hmmm… Or maybe it is just dirt, but whatever it is, it’s adorable.

You know I love ya, Lishyloo! And your great style finds for kids too!

I must ask you, Lish–where did you find THIS:

I nearly died when I saw it! SWEET PICKLE!!! I know that this is a reference to the Awesome Sweet Pickles book series, but it reminds me of this story my beloved friend Jen told me about a friend of hers whose Mom ran a daycare called Sweet Pickles Daycare and when he was a teen, he used to sneak into the daycare at night to woo the ladies, using the Teddy Ruxpin doll as a CD player. Awww yeah!

Happy Snappy Monday, ya’ll!
