Chilo’s closet now features a special designer piece
Off Saks recently opened its latest store at our local discount mall. The grand opening brought out the fashionistas in all of us, with ladies dressing to impress … well each other.
Sounds of stilettos smacking against cold, granite floors filled the space. Designer clad shoppers browsed, grabbed, and tried on even more designer clothes with the hopes of snagging a must-have piece that would be the envy of all their friends.
But there was one cute ensemble that stole the show (for me anyway). Nestled between designer shoes and high-end clearance racks, the kids section at Off Saks was just as label driven as its adult counterpart.
Onesies cost an upward of $200 at Saks, more than any one person should ever spend on an item that can only be worn for approximately 2-3 months. Knowing that most of the items in this section would be budget busters, my mom and I continued to look anyway, hoping for a glimpse of something cute, chic and affordable.
Once we scoured through the Juicy Couture, Dior, and DKNY kid brands, I stumbled upon a perfect princess outfit. Rarely do I buy all-white anythings, but this special outfit was worth it.
The ballerina-style polka dot onesie features three small, pink and white flowers with a little pink bow at the waist. Stitched around the waist is an adorable layer of silver, sheer tulle that gleams when she bounces around a room.
And as if the outfit couldn’t get any cuter, it came with a matching hat (which she has no interest in wearing).So while I fantasized about going on a label shopping spree (there’s not a basket big enough to hold all the Christian Louboutin shoes, McQueen dresses, and 7 for all Mankind denim I would buy), Chilo got her first designer outfit. And I walked away with a Saks tote bag.
About that outfit
The ballerina onesie cost $12.99 at Off Saks. It’s no longer available (sorry). But I highly recommend stopping by an Off Saks if there is one in your area.
There’s nothing wrong with seeing how the other half lives, even if you can’t afford to live like the other half. See Ms. shimmer and style in action:
Would you buy a designer outfit for your princess? And how much is too much to spend on a kid’s outfit?
