When I met my daughter for the first time, I was captivated. When we shopped for her first outfit, I was nervous.. This was her first outfit. In that moment, my inner fashionista was born.
I have never been a shopper for myself, but I absolutely love shopping for and dressing my child! And it works out, because enjoying dressing her in both play and dress clothes has caught on, and she is already happy and confident with her own fashion choices.
With this new love, I have discovered some incredible Instagram shops for kids that I cannot keep to myself! Here are few of my most favorite shops:
- Little Ren Creations
When your child opens their doll from Little Ren Creations, they are going to be blown away! Ella couldn’t open hers fast enough, and the details are incredible! From the matching hat, to the wrap, hair, wings and purse, my girl experienced utter delight! And so did I. Name your eye color, gender, skin shade, hairstyle, outfit – Nothing is left unsaid with these magnificent dolls! Every doll is one-of-a-kind!
Handmade, eco-friendly and consciously made dolls!! There are so many doll makers that will blow your mind on Instagram, but this shop owner, Lauren, is so communicative and easy to work with to make the perfect doll.
Her work is out-of-this-world beautiful! I really could go on all day about this experience, because it was amazing, but check out her shop, new line of dolls, a giveaway
and Ella with her very own customized doll (with matching hat – OMG the CUTENESS!) and see for yourself!
2. Savvys Chic Bowtique
Hair accessories for every occasion, shipped around the world!! This is, by far, my favorite hair accessory shop! They have bows, headbands, cheer bows and tutus! I have a real love for the leather bows, which are high-quality and withstand toddler life. Shop owner, Julie, is absolutely wonderful, and so great to work with if you have a custom order that you want her to make. We have enjoyed holiday and every day bows..even Autism Awareness & other great causes! I could go on and on, but just look at this child and how happy she is about her hair!

3. Miss Bella Leigh
These tutus are exquisite! I ordered one as a brand rep for this shop, and we ended up with the most gorgeous family Christmas portraits because of it. It was so easy to order a custom tutu, I can hardly wait to do it again! Shop owner, Rachel, is absolutely wonderful! Ella loved running and twirling in her tutu – nothing better than clothes that make our little ones feel good!

4. Afro Urban Fusion
This shop hails from Nigeria and is such a gold mine for African heritage handmade clothing and accessories! We just received our latest order and it, yet again, wowed me with it’s beauty and high-end craftsmanship. This shop ships worldwide and the lovely shop owner, Viv, is so wonderful to work with as you choose your prints and hair accessories. This is small empowered-female business at its finest!

I contacted Stacy, the fantastic mama & shop owner of Retrodition, when I discovered and fell in love with her shop. She made moon & star adorned, custom-made bellbottoms for my long & lean baby girl – and they are AWESOME!! Whenever Ella wears these, people always comment on how great they look and want to know where they came from. Most importantly, she loves to play and run in them.
