That is so gorgeous! Shan does amazing appliques. I really want a WIO from her one of these days. Ds is in the breastfed runny poops stage though so I am afraid of WIOs for now. He uses his Luxe Baby WIO just as a cover. Girls are so much fun, I'd love to get my 2 yr old a pretty WIO, but I can not leave her in just a diaper, she takes it all off. She has to have clothes over.
Yes you CAN get good deals at Gymboree. I live pretty close to the mall, so I stop by often looking for sales. A lot of the time they have the sidewalk sale going on and I buy for next years size. Also my sister is a single Mother and I like to buy her boys things there too. It's about buying at the right time. Of course I have to pay full price for CHristmas or Easter dresses, they sell out like a Kiwi there in my babies size usually. My neighbor is a full time cardiac nurse and her husband is a doctor and they make excellent money together of course and she is the same way. We always shop the sales together. It makes NO sense to pay full price for children's clothing when they wear it for only so long. KWIM?
