Archive for the ‘Outgrown Clothes’ Category

Kids grow up fast and seem to fly through clothing with their constant growth at lightening speed. If you’re like me, you’ve received some hand-me-downs and you pass down those clothes that are no longer needed. For the kids clothes that have been handed down to me (or that I’ve bought from work) that are within 6-12 months away from fitting my daughter, I try to hang them in her closet on the far end of the rack. I’ve found that if I leave them in a box in the garage, I forget about them and by the time I think to check – half of them no longer fit. If I leave them in her closet, it reminds me to check for them more often and she won’t miss out on that too cute outfit!

To help clear clothes out, I keep a pop-up basket in her closet that I regularly throw clothes into that she has outgrown. When it gets full it’s time to sort them and give them to the other moms I know with kids younger than Lilah. I send the heavy coats to a friend who lives in the coldest weather and the lightest clothing to those that live in the warmest weather. At that time, it’s also good to look through the closet and drawers for clothes or shoes that (for some reason) your child just doesn’t wear or are the wrong season and you realize they no longer fit. I think that’s about half of my daughters clothes. Kids are who they are – there is not much you can do about it!

cxengs-doggyYou have heard us say over and over about how much we love our pups here at le•top. Well, I think we have taken it to a whole new level. Cengx (pronounced Chay-ng), one of our star team members in the le•top warehouse, brought in her new puppy awhile back with a very familiar, and yet, unfamiliar, outfit on him. We all did a double-take at what he was wearing because it was none other than our le•top “fireman” coverall from a previous season, which she had cleverly redesigned into a doggy romper (of sorts)! Did I mention that we are not only creative in our designs for babies and kids, but it turns out, in our adaptations for dogs as well?!? Although you can’t buy this one-of-a-kind doggy outfit anywhere, you sure can make an attempt at morphing your baby’s outgrown le•top outfits into pet clothes. If you do, make sure to send us a picture, so we can share it with everyone!
