Have you ever seen photographs of French children and thought: "Man, even the kids over there are chic?" Well now your little ones can have the je ne sais quois of a French child with Les Petits Carreaux, a new clothing line created by Frenchwoman and Piedmont resident Stéphanie Ross. The beautiful fabrics, including chambray, French terry, and cotton voile, are sourced domestically, and everything is made in San Francisco. We're angling for adult versions of the adorable Anais blouse, the Axel sweatshirt and especially the Angelique pants. $75 may be more than you'd typically spend on a child's garment. But keep in mind that you have ethical practices on your side, and take Ross' tip: "As a girl grows, a dress can be worn as tunic."
