Meet the Dallas Moms Who Launched a Chic Clothing Line for Kids
A love for vintage fabrics inspired sisters Molly Holley and Jennifer Paradise to start children’s clothing line Pout.
Dallas sisters Molly Holley and Jennifer Paradise design vintage-inspired clothes for little ladies and lads. Their love of vintage fabrics and their struggle to find cute clothes that looked good from day to night for their own kids (they each have two) led the modern-day moms to develop their own line, called Pout. The result is adorable ruffle-bottomed bloomers and pants, tulip-sleeved tunics and tops, raglan tees, and monogrammed gifts (bags, burp cloths, bibs, and more) for kids 6 months to 7 years old. They launched the web-based business late last year and already have customers from as far away as Denmark dressing their tots in the stylish and versatile togs. More boys’ styles, including pearl-snap cowboy shirts, will be added to the line this fall. Everything is manufactured locally, so personalized or monogrammed items can be ready in as little as five days. Don’t like shopping online? Book a Pout Party (15 people or more), and they’ll set up shop at your place. Price range: $16-$60.
