A new princess was born over the weekend, so I decided that seemed a good enough reason to go looking at baby clothes and do a blog on what is available for Mum’s in NZ to dress their kids in. I choose to go to Farmers and The Warehouse, where everyone gets a bargain (of course). There was so much choice in both stores (nearly too much) and absolutely every colour imaginable. Given we are not quite in winter yet, there were still lots of summer clothes on sale at ridiculous prices of around $5-10. For winter it was nice to see some merino clothes and snuggly looking zip up jackets and colourful tights and leggings. I was surprised to see not a lot of pink clothes typically for girls or an abundance of blue for boys. Of course I had to find something in ‘yellow’.
As I hadn’t gone baby clothes shopping in a long time, I was impressed at the price-points of much of the clothing. My best find was the P for Princess tee-shirt that came with a matching silver crown on sale for around $10 at The Warehouse. Perhaps I should have bought one to send to Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge, to add to her collection of crowns, although this one may not be quite as sparkly?
