While I typically call my daughter Lil’ Foodie here on the blog, in reality she has far different interests. She loves playing educational games on her iPad, doing crafts, playing outside and… well, being sort of a little diva.
She loves looking good, and getting new clothes. Due to her sensory issues related to autism, her clothes MUST be comfy though. Dresses, pink, frills, all good… itchy, tight, or any other slight discomfort…out. Over the years I have come to notice better quality children’s clothing is both more durable and my little girl seems more comfortable in many of the pieces.
To satisfy her desire for style with comfort, while maintaining a reasonable clothing budget, I often turn to quality clothes from consignment stores mixed with inexpensive items such as leggings. The outfits featured here today were all from Moxie Jean. They carry better quality children’s clothing. Most is gently used, but some tag on items are also available. I love that I was able to find some of the European brands that can be harder to discover, and of course the good karma of reusing quality items rather than buying “disposable” clothes.
I kept my selections versatile, like I generally like to do. The short sleeves are comfortable on warm late summer/early fall days and in the classroom. On chillier mornings a cardigan or hoodie will keep the cold at bay, and can be easily removed. All the items shown totaled in at under $35. Just the sweater dress would be almost twice that much new at retail, and it was in pristine condition. The other items from Moxie Jean had been gently worn with no stains, nor any other issues. I was astounded at the speed of shipping. I ordered over the weekend and the items arrived on Monday. Now, while they ship promptly, they make no claim of orders arriving that fast.
