Okay, I'll be honest. This post partially derived from me just doing some virtual window shopping in the online baby section at Gap. I mean seriously, so much cuteness....
Those knee patches on that lil sleeper and that little straw fedora? Melt meeeee.
I'm obviously new to this adventure of kids clothes shopping. A couple of months back I had my first encounter with the lame-ity of the slim pickings stores can offer in the baby boys department (cough cough, Target) So I've started keeping a list of possible stores to shop for Finn. I haven't necessarily purchased from all of these, but these are stores I like to keep in mind:
- Gap - What can I say? Me and Gap are really close friends (but mostly stick to clearance or sale items)
- H&M - Cute and stylish stuff for cheap
- Old Navy - More cute stuff for cheap
- Target - Lots of stuff online, but not much in store
- Zulily - I'm new to this site, but there seems to be some really good deals on cute stuff
Also I should mention whenever I am purchasing online, before checkout I always check out RetailMeNot. This is an awesome site that provides coupon codes that usually saves me $5-$10. Definitely worth checking out.
Also a friend of mine led me to Ebates. This is a site that you sign up for and literally the only thing it requires from you is to go to their site and click on the store you are going to make an online purchase from and it gives you cash back for what you spend at that store. I'm still new to it, but definitely worth checking out if you make a lot of online purchases.
I will admit, I'm not a big shopper or spender, but I am seeing the fun in dressing my little boy up. I'm an obvious sucker for stripes (yeah, you may have noticed up there) or nautical or just general cuteness. Oh, but don't think that our little one isn't scooting around in a simple onesie at home, cause he totally is. Actually when he's with daddy, he somehow manages to loose the onesie. It's like a running joke lately. I recently realized Finn's naked a large portion of the time when I get home. lol
So how do you do your kid's clothes shopping? Do you get hand-me-downs? Do you have some favorite stores? I hear you can find some awesome stuff in thrift stores. Do you have stores that you avoid?
