Whether you're a parent or nanny to a stylish tot, or you're just the kind of person who covets the effervescent cuteness of children's clothing, Right Bank Babies will make you very, very happy. The store opened at Hollywood and Highland this weekend. It's small and practically buried in the haphazard mall, but it's worth searching out.
Most of the merchandise is for the little ladies: Lots of tulle and tutus and brocade—everything a fantasy princess come to life (in Brentwood) could want. Little legwarmers, too. The item that stole our heart was a perfect gold party dress sweetly adorned with a little black bow at the scoop neckline. The items are definitely on the spendy side: A little boy's t-shirt runs about $25, and the toddler sized party dress was $97. But at least you get twice as much for your money. "Most of the clothes are reversible. You know, because kids always spill things," volunteered a clerk. The store has its official opening party on October 24. Grab a baby (with permission, of course) and a juicebox and get to it.
