I recently stumbled upon Sprout Child, a cool boutique out of Royal Oak, MI. They have a great line up of children's clothes brands. Founders Amy and Lauren have been best friends for many years, and always dreamt of opening a "cool, funky kids boutique." CMM thinks they've succeeded.
Hard to believe fall clothes are starting to arrive at retail as summer is just getting underway, but Sprout Child has fab new fall fashions from Cotton Caboodle, Flowers by Zoe, and Baby Bean among other labels. My credit card is having hot flashes as I sit here and plot my next purchase. I want the red and yellow floral Baby Bean dress ($64... for a special occasion, okay!), Flowers by Zoe alphabet long sleeved tee ($40... don't judge... you'll want it too when you click the link), and Hi Ho Batik pants with heart design ($34... if you divide the number of times she'll wear by the total cost it's practically free!).
If you can't stand a splurge and are okay on last year's fashions, check out their fall/winter 07/08 clearance. You'll get 30% at checkout by entering the code SCWS30.
