I’m a very big fan of nautical fashion, so when Baby GAP had their season sale from spring 2009, I bought a couple pieces from that line. Maybe I can find something along the lines of this style for myself to compliment the girls. The great thing about these pieces are they are super soft, and the material transcends the summer season into fall because of its heavier texture. They definitely are layering items, which makes them versatile in any weather. I also made sure I sized up for Emma, seeing as that she’ll start school next year, and I don’t want to have to spend extra money for clothes next year. She’ll truly be a dapper Dannie. source: Baby GAP
“Anne Pinkerton cuts a mod figure from drapey jersey, featuring a blouson racerback bodice and tapered, ruched lengths.” Pros: comfortable, versatile, slimming, hides trouble areas, moves when you move, unique Cons: a little too loose even with an xs. OMG. I LOVE rompers; I can wear these everywhere. They are so comfortable, even my husband commented on the material, and he’s not a fashion kind of man. Let me just say, the picture doesn’t give this piece any justice! Someone get this romper a model! I’m 5’2 and small, so I had to size down to an XS, which fit great, and still with a lot of room left over for the material to flow and move. The top is, however a bit too long so it drapes a little longer than it should, but still looks fine when worn. The legs are a little longer too, but when it’s hiked up to the calves, they stay on there. When pulled down, they reach my ankles, but I don’t like how it looks when worn all the way down. My last disappointment is that the elastic waist is a little big so it tends to drop all the way down […]
I don’t know about other moms, but I love reusing the same clothes from my first daughter for my second. Every time I go through Emma’s (1st) clothes, I find myself getting so nostalgic, recalling the moments she’s worn them. Being a fan of fashion, I can usually remember the occasions when she’s worn specific clothes, esp. if that particular piece of clothing was a favorite of mine. Today, I’ve gone through numerous old clothes again for Zienne (2nd), and it made me a little sad that after the couple weeks of wearing them, I’d have to put them away again, thus ultimately and metaphorically saying goodbye to that specific phase of her infancy. Oh, who would have thought, tags saying 0-3 can make one such a sap. I’m such a sucker for that, and can’t seem to get over the sentimental emotions. *sigh* What can I say? I am one of those moms who are so in love with her children…and will probably one day transform into a horrible mess once the empty nest syndrome arrives, clinging to old pictures, cataloguing old videos, and stitching initials onto their children’s clothes made by their former swaddle blankets…hahah I laugh now, […]
Some great finds today… For Zem: Braided Sandals from Baby GAP Braided strappy faux-leather upper with a secure buckle strap at heel, slight wedge at cork footbed, rubber sole. Comes in brown, but I like how the red pops out. Originally $27 but I found it for $5. Nice right? Just in time for summer. Wish I found the similar ones, higher wedge, so I can match with her. But the bargain was too unbelievable. For Baby Zias/Zienne: Cable Knit Sweater One Piece from Baby GAP Short raglan sleeves, v-neckline, front button placket, picot-edged cuffs and leg openings, hidden inseam snap placket. Soft and comfortable cable knit cotton with finely ribbed trim throughout. I have such a personal affinity to knitted things, esp. baby’s clothes. It also just looks so simple, but natural. This one, I found for $7, which was originally $30. I was so surprised when I got to the payment counter that I bought one for my expected niece/nephew that’s arriving this October. What’s messed up is that online, these items are on sale, but still comparatively expensive. The shoes are $14 and the the one piece is $25. BOO!!!
