First of all, let me admit that I have a weakness for little girls’ clothes. That’s why we have little girls, right? To dress them in cute clothes? (Kidding, I’m kidding.) When I only had one baby girl, I actually did darken the doors of the local children’s boutiques on occasion and spend money. I always headed straight for the clearance racks first, because even in my pre-frugal days I blanched at paying more for a dress for Lulu than the amount for which I could buy one for myself. With the birth of Louise some short eighteen months later, I quickly realized that I was going to have to figure this cute-clothes-buying thing out and in a hurry since we all know that unfortunately, the budget does not actually grow with the family. We have two huge children’s consignment sales in our area that happen twice a year, and that’s where I find the bulk of my girls’ wardrobes. However, that’s not what this post is about–come back this Friday when I post about my consignment sale prep. This post is about my favorite online store, which is Hanna Andersson.
There are several things I love about Hanna Andersson, the first of which is the style. I love colorful cotton dresses with matching or contrasting tights or leggings. The second thing I love about Hanna is the quality. I have had no complaints at all about the quality of anything by Hanna I’ve ever bought, and once when I did order the wrong size, I simply sent my order back and they sent me the correct size in record time. I also love the fact that due to the sizing, the outfits may last through more than one season. Did I mention that I love the style of Hanna? Look here to see what I mean!
Since most of what I write about here at Hope Is the Word is frugality and our quest for it, I would be remiss if I did not admit that I have only ever purchased something directly from Hanna Andersson once. When I get the urge to dress my girlies in cute, Swedish-inspired clothing, I hang out at Ebay until I see something I like. Gee, I hope this doesn’t get me kicked out of WFMW!
