Baby Clothes

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Has anyone found any good spring and summer baby clothes?  I'd prefer to shop online.  I'm looking for 0-3mo. and 3-6mo. girls clothes.   I'm sick of The Children's Place, Gymboree, Zulilly, Old Navy, Gap.  Any ideas?

I found some nice bright/plain stuff at americanapparel.com (sp?). Nice tees and sleep gowns.

I do a lot of my baby clothes shopping at http://gilt.com/children. It's a temporary sale site for designer brand name stuff for much cheaper. The sales only last for a few days and they have limited supplies of the various items/sizes, but you get really good deals. I've bought almost all my baby clothes from there.

 

I also like http://www.janieandjack.com.

target mostly....but because we have so many clothes already i limit the amount i would spend on something to $5, and it better be cute....so for that you have to go to the store.

surprisingly enough.....walmart. their stuff seems to be either hideous or adorable beyond what you would expect. my 18 month old is rocking a pair of stretch skinny jeans with cuffs that we got there for $3.50 full price (in every future size as well!) that look like we could have spent $20 at the gap.

If you don't mind gently used items you should really try ThreadUp.com. It's a great way to get clothes for pretty cheap and to get rid of clothes once your child has gotten too big for them.

That first link wouldn't work for me.  I'm anxious to take a look though!

 

Thanks everyone for the ideas!  I may do some online shopping today.  I also may stop by an outlet mall tomorrow after my doctor's visit.  Carter's usually has cute and inexpensive summer stuff and pajamas.  I'm just not one that likes to go out shopping usually.  I do like to find good deals online though!

Wish I could help, but I tend to stick with target and walmart. I've only bought one thing though for this baby, since we have so much from DS and they were same-season babies.

Ditto. We stick to Walmart (since that's all there is here) and thrift shops for gently used clothing. Can't see spending too much on any one outfit when they outgrow everything so fast.

I like Carter's and OshKosh (sister sites, same shipping). We are trying thredup for the first time. There is an earth day link floating around, and if you sign up through it you get a free box.

I've had a hard time finding cute baby boy clothes this time. So much of what's out there looks cheap or ugly to me. I've been able to find things here and there over the last few months, but it's been pretty hit or miss and mainly brands you said you were tired of.... Children's Place, Old Navy, Carters, Gap.

The thing that irritates me about Carter's is that there is usually a coupon out for an in-store discount that can't be used online.  I feel like I'm paying more if I order online.  Even though Iprefer the convenience, I can't bring myself to do it.  I know I'm crazy!

try this.  you have to become a member (like at zulily) first and then you gain access.  in fact, i think you have to request membership first.

You may have to go to http://gilt.com first. It's a sign in only site, so you have to be logged in to see any of the sales.

I know about Carter's. I usually wait and hit up the outlets and use the coupon on the next size or two and buy everything at once.

 

Mostly we do second had clothes and since I find such great stuff I have a hard time paying any retail.

I do mostly 2nd hand, hand-me-downs, or thrift store shopping for my kids clothes.  There's a great thrift store by me, I find Children's Place clothes there all the time for dirt cheap.  I've got some of the cutest clothes from the thrift store.  Either that or I like Target's clearance.

I was able to thrift everything but infant socks and hats. Those I bought at Walmart. 

 

A friend of mine from Portland was able to send me a hipster silkscreen onesie so bebe will have one supa fly outfit. I did score from thrifting a carter's hungry caterpillar onesie which I adore, as well as some Beatrix Potter and Winnie the Pooh clothing. Those are my top three favorites so I feel blessed.

 

I can't wait to dress baby Alexander. joy.gif
