shopping for kids clothing


I found the site melijoe.com the other day and have become obsessed with the adorable clothes that they offer. They have Petit Bateau and Carrement Beau clothing and Aigle boots that I have my eyes on. They show prices in USD and there is a range of clothing with brand name offerings as well as affordable ones. I love to look but will probably not order unless I buy a few things since the shipping is a flat rate. So many cute peter pan collars and stripes and classic cuts.

I don’t usually buy new clothing but it can be worth it for well made pieces that don’t go out of style since they can always be traded in for something new. I have had good luck with resale shops in Berkeley and Oakland and right now Emma has two adorable cardigans from Boden and Oilily (both about ten dollars) that I really wish I could borrow. FYI if you do live in the area, Ruby’s Garden is the best resale shop that I have found. It is on Telegraph in Temescal and they give you credit to purchase any of the clothing in the store and not just the used racks. However the gently used clothing racks do not disappoint. It is hard to visit and not come out with something. ^_^
