One of the mother's from playgroup tipped me off that Nordstrom Rack in East Palo Alto has great designer brand children's clothing for the same prices you pay at Carter's and Gymboree- so naturally we had to check it out!!
I went with the intention of buying a bunch of shoes for Graceface but unfortunately the selection for little girls was a bit slim- though we did score a great pair of light pink Converse for $18. What I did love was the phenomenal selection of Kate Spade, Nicole Miller, Tea and Splendid clothes for toddler girls-- all at about 40% off retail.
Even more astounding was the little boys selection with 7 Jeans, Vince, and more- the shoes for little boys were also great!
