It’s hard to dress your son boutiquey when he’ll only wear dinosaurs, but I’m managing. There’s actually lots of great high-end clothing for boys out there and I hope to someday have enough boy posts that my friends with boys can plug “boy” into the search box (up top) and get an eyeful. Here’s one of our faves:
The Shirt (Mulberribush):
This adorable shirt – appliqué detailed with white felt “teeth” – is by Mulberribush, a brand often found in the crazy-expensive catalogue CWD Kids. Thankfully we didn’t have to pay a fortune for it though, because Mulberribush was featured on Hautelook, which is Nordstrom’s flash-sale site. Guess how much it was on Hautelook? $8.97. Hautelook really zings you on shipping, which is $8.00 flat-rate, but their prices are so low that as long as you buy more than one thing it’s still an amazing deal. Even if I’d only gotten the shirt, I still would have paid just $17.00 including shipping. Not bad when you consider that these go for $30 on CWD Kids and CWD shipping is also outrageous. I’ll probably get $7 back reselling, so this shirt was a fantastic purchase.
*If you can’t be bothered to scour the internet yourself, “like” me on Facebook and I’ll post only the very best kids’ clothing deals I find.
The Pants (Janie & Jack):
I can’t say enough about J&J pants! They are absolutely our go-to, they just look so sharp. Waist is always adjustable, which is a godsend. They’re obviously expensive but the basic styles often don’t sell out until they’re pretty reduced, and resale value is great if you keep them nice. Just last night I got a pair of J&J jeans for under $10 on their clearance rack in the store. If you’re buying a few or several items, be sure to check Ebay for J&J coupons. You can often pay under $5.00 for a J&J coupon that will pay for itself many times over depending on what all else you’re buying.
Happy Shopping, y’all!
