Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Missye K. Clarke

An Alabama based family owned clothier boutique for six years, The Children’s Cottage at, is in the business of dressing your darlings in the finest, USA made kids wear … because of their love for fine things, especially for children.

The site is as cute as their For Your Little Angel keyhole dress. Girls 5 and younger will look so summery cute with a wonderful new design; a square keyhole opening in the back of the dress.

The dress is made with the wonderful “Paris Writing” fabric with a white background and pink and black writing and little Eiffel Towers. The dress fastens in the back with two covered buttons above and below the keyhole. The dress is piped in black to match the fabric. Starts at $55 USD.

Baby’s and toddler’s clothes are amazingly cute; this may be why we don’t want the kiddies to grow up – and out of the adorable donnables. Now available, this boys’ blue gingham John John with two big appliqued green fish on the front is available for $52 USD for sizes 12m to size 2 (about size 2s are sold out)

Always have trouble dressing multiples? The site caters to outfitting twins, triplets, quads and over. Boy girl twins look really precious in mathinc clothes, a la Rugrats characters Lill and Phil. (If you have children in your orbit under the age of ten, just mention the name “Angelica Pickles” and they’ll know what you’re talking about … and start asking loads of Chuckie questions, too). These brother/sister matching gingham sets are traditional summertime fare for outings, Mom and Dad trips and just having a sunny day fine time out and about in NYC. Priced at $52 USD for the dress, $59 USD for the boys’ romper, these and other kids apparel can be tailored for monogramming.

A printed catalog isn’t available at this time, be sure to visit for other clothing logistics, shower and new baby ideas, shipping details, ordering information and store hours for customer service and other specific questions.
