I have a massive soft spot for Gap Baby and Gap Kids. When Miss L was a baby the clothes that washed the best and lasted longest were from Baby Gap. Other than when I’d just gone on maternity and bought literally half the store, my method has been to go in the sales and buy for the next year or have a hunt on ebay for coats etc. And every Christmas my lovely best friend in the US sends Miss L a gorgeous outfit.
As she’s gotten older I’ve found that a lot of stores seem to think that what’s appropriate on a 16 year old will look equally good on a 4 year old (who’s actually a tall 2.5 year old!). Not really wanting my little girl to look like a hooker in training I’ve been somewhat picky about where I’ve been buying her clothes.
She’s now 6 and in size aged 8 this is still a massive problem and Gap Kids along with Boden and H&M never let me down. So I was very excited to read in The Times this morning that Stella McCartney has teamed up with GapKids for a collection (newborn to age 12) that launches in selected stores November 2nd.
and the dusky pink tutu in the top picture is too cute! Good luck tracking them down, I suspect they’ll sell out quickly!
