A clothing collection inspired by a classic book and not a video game? Ears up, bunnies.
babyGap is launching an adorable, limited-edition collection based on Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit. It's not too early to stock up on Easter outfits (after all, it is in March this year), and the breezy dresses adorned with rabbits, chunky knit hat with bunny ears and nostalgic onsie with an illustration of Peter (pictured) will make the backyard egg hunt look like a Town & Country photo shoot.
That's sweeter than a cream-filled egg. —Maria Tallarico
Pieces (0-24 months) from $19.95, in store Monday, January 14 at babyGap and online January 17 at gapcanada.ca

Secondhand children’s wear is great in theory, but trawling through crowded used clothing stores with poorly labeled goods makes a bargain seem less valuable.
At A Size Too Small, you’ll find the opposite problem. The curated children’s clothing and toys site features a mix of stylish new items and secondhand pieces that are so beautifully presented, it’s tough to believe they are used. Our favourite new pieces include Little Dace dresses ($70) and this unbelievably stylish Nico.Nico blue trench (pictured, $130.) Their “found” garments include a ridiculously cute worn denim shirt ($12), and an amazing pair of red and white retro baby shoes (pictured, $20.)
Of course you had better get in there fast, the found pieces are one of a kind, and in one size only. So prepare to be the one shedding those tears if you miss out on something fantastic. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg

When our Editor-in-chief Sarah Bancroft was on CTV talking back-to-school kids fashion this week, she didn't mean to send out a fashionable subliminal message.
But it seems many viewers (and a few women in our office) couldn't resist the lure of a casually stylish coat: Gap's Uniform rain slicker. Here's the scoop: A boy's XXL equals a woman's medium, and you can be assured that it's soft, comfortable, waterproof and durable (as GapKids clothes are known to be).
Best part? No chance you'll grow out of it!
Gap Uniform rain slicker, $32.86 at www.gapcanada.ca
