When Emerson was little, I didn't understand why one would buy a baby cute clothes that were expensive.  I mean, it was like a month and then the garment no longer fit!  And then add to it spitup, pee, and regular washings, cute clothes weren't worth it.
Well Emerson is starting to walk, spends more time upright than lying on the floor (though now she lies on the floor for fun, not because she can't get herself around).  She plays in the yard and in playgrounds and at her local Mamas and Papas playgroup.  When we visit friends and family, she is toddling around their homes, no longer napping in the Ergo or car seat.  Now… it's worth it to get clothes that aren't just durable knits.
Luckily, it's not too hard to get cute clothes on clearance.  I am a huge fan of Gap and Old Navy for kids clothing.  They always have cute stuff (like these two tops and pairs of jeans) on great sales, and since I have a Banana Republic Visa, I get free shipping and notification when they have their 30% off sales. 
Now, dressing Emerson is fun.  I can buy her clothes that I think are cool – not a bunch of candy colored ruffled knits that say, “Hug Me!” all over them.  She also seems to enjoy them – she loves the top in the first picture (taken this morning) – she plays with the emboidery and when I take it out of the drawer she says, “Ooohhh!” 
I just wish they had that ivory and pink embroidered top in MY size!

    She is adorable!

    I have so much fun dressing my gal, too. I also wish so much of her wardrobe came in my size!

    Little kids’ clothes, particularly girls’, are also really easy to thrift.

    Emerson is gorgeous, BTW. She strongly resembles her mom.

    I have a son and I thought I’d dress him in whatever was cheap, but sometimes I just had to buy him a really cute outfit, full price.

    My sister has two girls and I just love buying them special clothes.

    Emerson is such a cutie!

    I am doing all dresses with Alice, my youngest. He he! Gabby (my oldest) can be such a tomboy with her clothes right now–I never see her not in a t-shirt and jeans, it seems. So Alice is getting the dress treatment. We pink puffy heart Hanna Anderssons that I find gently used on Ebay. The fit is great.

    She is really quite a gorgeous young lady! And those eyebrows…I’d pay good money to have mine look that great.

    Isn’t Old Navy wonderful? I’m a nanny for my 2-yo cousin and whenever she’s wearing especially cute clothes, chances are they’re from Old Navy!

    I’ve also noticed that Target has really cute clothes for little toddler girls.

    Emerson looks so cute! Good to know that she’s getting the same fashion sense as her mommy!

    Shopping for the kids doesn’t count! Enjoy it now, my 15 yr old twins grew up to be tomboys and wont look at anything I touch.

    Emerson is a cutie!

    I feel the same way and have zero problem dropping some $$ on clothes for my kid, but feel guilty doing it for myself. 🙂
