  • NO way!!! When they were little I did shop at a consignment shop and got my son a Tommy Hilfiger sports jacket. We had a Bar Mitzvah to go to. I paid $5 for the jacket. That kind of shopping yes. In a department store, no. Especially when they were little and grow out of things really quickly.

  • depends on what you mean by DESIGNER.

    My son once had a very expensive wool peacoat that cost as much as a car payment. It was a stupid 1st time mom move

    my daughter has worn some pretty amazing dresses from Macys, all for under $20 on clearance. And lots of Lacoste & Burberry from ebay
