2008 BEST Children's Clothing, West

Milalilu

The economy’s in need of a good spanking these days, which means baby clothes are eliciting more than just ‘ooh’ and ‘aah.’ There’s also ‘ugh,’ when shoppers do the math on something that gets months, not years, of use. Rather than go gunnysack, budget-minded parents can tap this two-year-old ‘sensible luxury’ boutique for fewer, higher-quality pieces kids can wear the dickens out of, like Daily Tea’s mix-and-match cotton knits and washable Robeez leather shoes. Frequent markdowns mean Milalilu’s stylish and sturdy wares are even more on the money.
