Behind the Design of Uptown’s New Children’s Shop, Little Hipsters

Kid or not, you're going to want everything inside.

Have you ever experienced an Instagram black hole? Let me explain. You’re casually perusing your feed. You see a well-dress woman or a taste-making toddler and enjoy their ensemble. You want to know more, so you click the tagged designer. You then suddenly feel the urge to look at every single photo that they have ever posted. You’ve gone down an Instagram black hole, and very few things will tear you away from your screen. The smell of pizza usually works for me.

I promise I have a point. That captivating, exhilarating feeling you get when you find a new designer or artist on Instagram is now being embraced by several shops across Dallas, including the newly opened children’s shop in Uptown, Little Hipsters.

IMG_4304Remember those taste-making toddlers I rattled on about earlier? Those chic littles were the inspiration for sisters and shop owners Mireya and Marlene Hernandez, who wanted to bring the modern and playful brands they’d discovered on social media into a brick and mortar store.

Filled with hip, adorable finds from American made and European brands like Kenzo, Little Eleven Paris, Soft Gallery, Miguel Vieira, Kickee Pants, and MAA Shoes, Little Hipsters is the perfect spot to find a special outfit or accessory the small ones in your life. And thanks to an interior designed by Abbe Fenimore, one of this year’s Best Designers and owner of Studio Ten 25, that spot is a stylish one.

We’re a little décor obsessed over here at D Home, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get some insight from Abbe on Little Hipsters’ unique design.
