For the past 4.5 years I have avoided Gymboree because of the prices.  It wasn't the type of clothing I would buy for Naiya because she spent most of her time in daycare and I didn't want her ruining the clothing.

We've got a couple of important events coming up so I took a spin through a local store because she loves giraffes and they've got a giraffe print collection.

Here's what I ended up with:








They didn't have shoes in her size but I managed to find them on ebay.

I don't shop there either. I very rarely buy Gymboree at garage sales either....not paying $12 for a used outfit. 

Personally i don't really like the styles...most remind me of stuff my grandmother would've put on me when I was a kid and my mom would've been mad that she put me in them. They do have a few cute lines now and then, and if I was going somewhere special or for pictures I would buy it....but not for every day yikes. The giraffe outfit is cute though!

Naiya just loves giraffes and I thought it was cute and since it was on sale...I don't think I'd shop there very often though.  She's too rough & tumble for their stuff.

 I too don't buy too much Gymboree used. I am astounded at the # of people that slap high prices on it b/c of the tag. I have found a few  super cute things when Alex was little that people had the $1 a piece.

A friend of mine works for Gymbo part time. So she grabs my kids an outfit here and there off the markdown rack, but even then I find the markdowns too "high."

That is a cute outfit.
