It was only a few weeks ago that fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer passed away. I had always been a fan of her bold, citrus-hued prints, having eyed them from a distance over the years, and only recently saved up to buy. Once I became a mom and was introduced to her line for kids, my interest in acquiring an entire super-stylish wardrobe only intensified. Now my girls could share my love of dressing with pizazz (too bad my pocketbook couldn’t meet those expectations…) So, when we learned of this week’s launch of another fashion icon’s line for kids, I finally got a grip on reality: maybe now we could play the part of the savvy shopper who can look great, without breaking the bank. GapKids + DVF Explorers Collection is a head-turning ensemble of adorable, yet affordable pieces that pay homage to the effortless style of Diane von Furstenberg. From skinny jeans paired with graphic tees, to swimsuits and other fun-in-the-sun accessories, these clothes exude a casual look and feel without skimping on quality. And of course, no von Furstenberg collection would be complete without a wrap dress or two; these pint-sized ones are too precious for words. Available for newborn up to age 14, the GapKids + DVF Explorers Collection puts girls on the path to designer clothing, without the debt.
In a Nutshell: Time to make room in your daughter’s closet for a new line of designer clothing you’ll both love. (Whether you choose to embarrass…er, delight her with your own von Furstenberg little number is up to you…)
