If you know me at all, you know I love everything J. Crew. So it's no surprise that I'm a big sucker for their crewcuts collection for kids. J. Crew has sold some children's items here and there in the past, but a couple of years ago they officially launched their crewcuts line for ages 2-12.
You can find these mini J. Crew items in a selection of J. Crew stores and a handful of actual crewcuts stores, but you'll find the most selection online.
Now are these the most affordable children's clothes? Momma, please. If you're me, you're only shopping here for two reasons... either you're looking for a fabulous formal outfit for your child to wear in a wedding or other special occasion, OR you're hitting a big sale. And J. Crew does have killer sales, so don't count this one out when you see those retail tags. I never pay retail, mommas, and neither should you.
Keep an eye on the sale items online. They don't necessarily match the sale prices in store, so get on J. Crew's mailing list so you can be alerted to new sale items and additional discounts. They are always having promotions for "additional 20%" or "additional 30%" off sale items. You can get some ridiculous deals if you time it right.
If you've got a location near you with the crewcuts collection in store, keep an eye on their sale section as well. Sometimes the store sales will beat the online sales, so you just have to keep tabs on both. Definitely add this one to your shopping rolodex... it's a goodie.
