By: David Kiley

Tequila seems to have to fight for respect more than other spirits, such as whisky, rum, brandy and even vodka. Perhaps it's because Tequila seems to be more associated, in the U.S. with benders and beach parties rather than snifters and sommeliers.

Who says little ones should be deprived of a little luxury now and then? Certainly not Jessica Alba or Kelly Rutherford -- two celebs who dress their kids in Bambeeno Cashmere.

The label offers soft, sweet and stylish cashmere pieces for kids and we're completely smitten with Bambeeno's sweaters -- perfect for a chilly spring day or evening.

Our fave: The lobster style, worn by Honor Marie Warren. Yes, it's $138, but it's fabulous.
