mini:licious closets: Caiden Alexander Ting

Oct 14, 2014

mini: How much do you spend on Caiden’s closet per month?
Christine: I used to spend over $500-$1,000 a month, but I’ve calmed down. Thank GOD, I realized how fast he grows and some of our favorite stuff doesn’t even fit him anymore. I end up giving away so much.

mini: Where are a few of your favorite places to shop online for Caiden?
Christine: Online shopping is great and most of the brands we like can be purchased online, but there are some hidden gems like Thumbeline, Minixstyle and Shanandtoad which have great unique brands and options. Also, Gilt.com can be good sometimes as well as River Island, Joe Fresh and COS, which all ship to the US now.

mini: What are a few of your favorite brands for Caiden?
Christine: Favorite brands obviously are the easy stuff like Zara, Polo (tops only), Crew Cuts, but then we’ll mix it up with Mini Rodini, Stella McCartney, Y-3, Nununu. Also, Caiden’s lucky that his grandpa, Simon, makes clothes for a living and has made him some amazing custom leather pants, jackets and vest. We’re currently working on a leather trench coat and some fringed leather pants! Stay tuned!

mini: Where are a few of your Caiden’s favorite places to play?
Christine: We love going to Apple Seeds in Flatiron by our house, the City Treehouse, Madison Square Park and NY Kids Club. We live in Flatiron and it’s an amazing place for kids, with so much to offer.

mini: What are some of Caiden’s favorite toys?
Christine: His favorite toys are the play kitchen, collection of Elmos and the new work bench.

mini: What’s Caiden’s favorite song?
Christine: Caiden loves Twinkle Twinkle and has become engrossed with the ABC song. But his guilty pleasure is Taylor Swift, which he usually listens to whenever we go out to eat.
