BabyGate Fashion: Here's How to Dress Your Child For Alinea

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Not filled in on BabyGate? Here's your crash course: after a couple brought a baby into high-end dining establishment Alinea (and crying ensued), chef Grant Achatz sent out a tweet that ignited a controversy about whether wee ones should be allowed in fancy-pants restaurants.

The debate rages on, but may we propose: a child dressed in wee, splendid finery may have better chances at being welcomed into a hot spot's inner circle. (Look, if we had a cure for crying or tantrums, we'd offer that instead. But we're a fashion site, people.)

So, consider this: Luxaby Baby & Child is hosting a sale right now with 40 percent off goods for babies and children. And these are some swanky little duds (we're talking fur caplets, pink-velvet dresses, and more.) Below, take a peek at what's on offer. Couldn't you just see a tot eating molecular-gastronomy peas and carrots in these?
