The first thing you’ll think when walking into the new Pink Chicken boutique on Santa Monica’s hip Montana Ave. is, “I wish these clothes came in my size!” And then, as if the fashion fairies have heard your prayers, you’ll spot an entire rack of the shop’s stylish, vintage-inspired dresses made just for moms. Just in time for the holidays, Pink Chicken is here for gifting and to get Moms and kids seriously stylish.
Spreading Their Wings
These fabulous frocks for girls and women have been flying off the shelves at the shop’s two East Coast locations ever since Pink Chicken first opened their doors in the Hamptons in 2009. Now California kids can enjoy the fun designs that feature striking colors and vintage inspired prints. “We love that in many ways Santa Monica has retained its quaint, small town charm over the years,” says founder Stacey Fraser. “It’s the perfect fit for the Pink Chicken philosophy of easy, breezy dressing that is no fuss but always stylish.”
More to Admire Than Just Attire
While the store’s dresses and shoes you spy in the window as you shop your way down Montana will lure you in, there is plenty more to peruse once you step inside. Looking for the perfect birthday gift? You’re sure to find something for everyone. There are eco-friendly paints, organic cotton lunch bags, charm bracelets, lip gloss and a great selection of books.
The Perfect Fit
The store caters to kids of all ages, starting at three months to toddlers to tweens. Often the same adorable patterns can be found in many different sizes. Love that cute dress for your toddler? Well, it also comes in the right size for your tween and even you but with a bit of a mature, stylish twist. (Matching outfits become sweet, not twee, for those holiday photos.)
A Hit With Hollywood
The line is also a favorite among famous faces such as Jennifer Garner, Christy Turlington and Halle Berry whose children have been spotted wearing the clothes. Luckily, the stars (and you!) can now check out these fashionable finds without having to hop on a plane.
