I was at American Apparel the other day, and after I put my sunglasses back on (all that blinding hideous neon!) I realized the place isn't for me anymore. Something about how they sold to some big horrible corporation like BP and now it got all weird. Like weirder than before. Like scrunchies and stretch lace and gold lamé. The saving grace, however, continues to be the kiddie section. What is it about finding basic, cotton essentials for kids that are not riddled with licensed characters that continues to be so difficult? Luckily the American Apparel designers (at least the ones in charge of the kid department) know what is up.
Hello, basic (organic!) cotton diaper cover. Where have you been hiding all these years?And you sweet, sweet little cotton tank dress:A perfect little red backpack for JuJu to carry to carry on the plane filled with, you know, a 2 year old's "essentials":I don't know about your mom, but mine put us in white cotton nighties (slip-style ones) on hot nights. However, they simply don't exist anymore....except in the form of this little soft dress. JuJu will wear this on hot nights in Italy:
And, of course, the ribbed tanks. All three of my kids live in these during the summer:
