Style File: Baby Chic
Watch out Hollywood, it's babies that are now going glam. So, boy or girl, moms, if you keep it chic, you can fool anyone into thinking your kids diapers don't stink.
WSVN -- Baby Tomkat, the Brangelina babies, Kelly's kids -- Hollywood little ones always seem to be red carpet ready.
Stephanie Selechnik: "I am always looking in magazines, I go to trade shows, I search online, but basically magazines tell me what's out there, the latest trends"
At Nini and Loli in Aventura you can get all the latest toddler trends.
Owner Stephanie Selechnik decided to open the baby boutique after the birth of her first daughter.
Tired of the same old car seats, baby clothes and strollers, she decided it was time for a posh new approach.
Stephanie Selechnik: These are some personalized sandals. You can personalize them with the name."
Not in the market for sandals? How about some Swarovski crystal Converse sneakers or a Diaper Dude for you cool dads.
Baby Chic is all the rage, even if you're not in Hollywood.
Stephanie Selechnik: "I find that a lot of moms are looking at the same brands they wear to wear for their children, I have Splendid Littles here, which moms wear Splendid, also 575 jeans."
And for kids who care more about the books than looks, Genius Jones is a perfect place for your little know-it-all.
Daniel Kron: "We are big believers in selling things that don't send too much of a message but leave room for kids to imagine themselves."
Babies are cool at Genius Jones.
The go-to baby spot features everything from modern designer kiddy furniture to uber cool toys to the must-have stroller of the season.
After all, you are what you push.
Daniel Kron: "The Bugaboo stroller has become ubiquitous around the country, you can't open a magazine without seeing a celebrity pushing a Bugaboo."
Even artists like Takashi Murakami are cashing in on the stylish tot trend.
The Japanese artist responsible for one of Louis Vuitton's top-selling celeb-favorite bags is creating a limited edition soccer ball for aspiring little leaguers.
Daniel Kron: "We specialize in finding the best in designs for kids from all over the world and making it accessible in our stores."
Yeah, that soccer ball will set you back about $400 bucks.
If that doesn't fit your price range, the store's got all kinds of items starting from $5 to $10,000.
