Tartine et Chocolat - vêtements pour bébé



Tartine et Chocolat


This boutique is next door to Repetto on Rue de la Paix
so it is a stop for me on every visit to Paris.


Some chic babies in Paris will be dressed in saumon et gris this season,
but I do not think that those little soft shoes will do well in the chalky dust of Tuilleries. 
At this age, she will probably ride in a poussette (stroller), oui?

Delightful! Looks like my kind of boutique! My daughters would have loved it when then they were the "little age" and still would, I'm sure! Hope you have a lovely week, Genie!

Hugs

Where's her head?! I guess she doesn't need one when she's so beautifully dressed! I received a gift of eau de toilette from this store when I had No 4. Apparently it is quite a French thing to receive - it isn't a very strong scent, very baby appropriate and perfect for after bath.

Hello Genie:
There is something delightfully old fashioned in appearance about these clothes which makes them particularly appealing. But, as you say, the shoes are not so robust when it comes to serious walking!!

Oh la la. Quelle élégance! Those shoes - unlike the famous boots - were not made for walkin' !!! :-) Veronique - from the sailboat - (French Girl in Seattle)

Very funny shot. The head is very strong not there. Thanks for showing.

Such a nice shop window with elegant clothes for the little ones.

Kristy and sc took the words right out of my mouth. Where's the head? Perhaps it's easier to dress without one or maybe it's designed this way to attract attention. Could it be that they thought a head would reduce the opportunity of spontaneous purchases. Do they think if people saw the outfit on a child with a round head it would be unsuitable for children with more elongated features. For me a head is preferable. It looks rather odd without one. I'm pleased the child mannequin has an adult mannequin to watch out for it. Please don't tell me the adult mannequin was headless too. J.

... and the mother with matching colours - or vice versa! :-)

What a precious outfit. But oui, she will need a stroller.

I'm afraid I couldn't resist walking in the Repetto store...

Merisi said...

Cute 20s Jodhurs! ;-)

Absolutely Genie, like the little princess that she is!

Sketchbook Wandering said...

Her little outfit reminds me of a Saltambique from a Picasso painting...I too am wondering where is her head & am kind of missing it! The little slippers are my favorite part of her costume!

Kris said...

A~D~O~R~A~B~L~E. The child who dons this outfit will be a fashionista for sure! HA :)

This is Belgium said...

not very comfortable for a child this age
un peu vieux jeu?? :)
we had a shop here in Brussels like that but it is gone, I believe.

Starman said...

Poor kid was so excited, she lost her head.

Riet said...

That is a lovely outfit and the shoes are so pretty

Birdman said...

"...off with her head!"

Janey and Co. said...

With a new granddaughter I am afraid this shop would temp me...






BTW...your secret is safe with me!Question is.... do you know how to use it?

Pet said...

Oui, but then chocolate is always so messy with children :-)

Alexa said...

This bébé may be headless, but she is super chic! (Do they call this outfit "Marie Antoinette"?)

Jeanie said...

It's so adorable -- how I wish I had a little one to buy that for!

Mary said...

What an adorable, ever so stylish outfit. The little girl who wears it will be super lucky.. (and very fashionable.)

Jack said...

The colors are wonderful, but I wonder if the outfit is really going to get much real-life use. Maybe the store is a bit too precious . . .

Randy said...

Sweet outfit.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Well, your comments did leave me stumped, but after looking at photos from this shop over the past two years I can tell you that none of the manequins have heads!

Alexa, it took me two seconds to catch the reference - hah!

Peter, I think that the companion is an older sister as the boutique sells for children as well as for babies.

Kirsty, I think that is a delightful gift and one much appreciated by a mom!

Sketchbook, but at least Picasso included their heads...

Sam, never ever resist the Repetto store!

Joe, yes, the older manequin was.... headless!

Jane and Lance, how delighted I am that you have returned from your vacation.

Janey, yes, bien sûr!

Bises,
Genie
