See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
She may be a former reality TV star, but based on the fact that Kristin Cavallari buys inexpensive baby clothes -- it's obvious that she's way less diva-ish than most celebrity new moms.
Believe it or not, she even admits that any designer duds her son Camden has were given to him as gifts. She says, "All of his designer clothes have been presents from people. At first I was all into the outfits -- and some days I am -- but other days he’s just in pajamas. They grow out of [outfits] so quickly, so there’s no point in spending so much money."
OMG. You know who she sounds like? Me. Or you. Or like any other regular mom in America.
And just wait 'til you hear where she shops -- it'll make you relate to her even more.
When she confessed that designer clothes aren't her thing, I still expected her to drop a couple higher-end labels or names.
But I was blown away after hearing two of her favorite places to shop for her little guy are (wait for it) -- Carter's and Target.
Um, that's where I shop for my son too. (We're, like, twins or something.)
I love that even though Kristin has the means to shop anywhere she wants for baby clothes, she has the common sense to stick to stores that are reasonable. For the life of me, I've never understood why anyone, no matter how rich they are, shells out insane amounts of cash for clothes that will be worn for a month or so at best. And aside from their brief "shelf life," you can pretty much count on any piece of baby clothing you own being either spit up on or stained with strained peas as soon as you take the tags off.
Whether you're famous or not, it can't hurt to save a few bucks, and that's why every mom should stick to the basics and be practical when selecting their babies' wardrobes. They'll have plenty of time to empty their wallets on all things fashionable once their kids are older -- so might as well conserve your cash while you still can.
Do you buy designer baby clothes?
