If you read my earlier articles, like this and this, you already know that I have an extremely soft spot for adorable clothes. Looking at beautifully made garments in the tiniest forms & sizes always brings a smile, and I was in full "joy mode" while browsing Bonpoint's offerings yesterday. From itsy bitsy cashmere cardigans in the prettiest pastels to the chicest puffer coats that I can't believe don't come in my size were set on tables and racks. Everything was organized into different age groups--from newborns to 12 years old--and almost all merchandise was discounted 60% off retail.
So, let's go deeper into prices & finds. Different varieties of pants such as corduroys & denims were around $50~$58. I spotted an adorable tiered plaid miniskirt for $64 (6th photo below) and a snuggly salmon pink cardigan for $62 (photo above). Sounds reasonable, right? Well, coats, jackets, and a few dresses were pretty pricey. A pale pink peter pan collar coat was $186 (7th photo below) and those puffer jackets that I mentioned earlier were $178. Great prices for adults, not so great for kids--especially knowing how quickly they grow.
After a lot of oohing~ and ahhing~ in the clothing section, I moved to shoes. Gosh, everything was soooo~ cute! The shoe section was mostly comprised of Mary Janes, loafers, and sandals. Out of all these tiny shoes, a few pairs of Tod's Junior loafers sat fashionably. They were $122 (10th photo below). Classic black patent Mary Janes from the Bonpoint label were $48. Compared to those Tod's loafers, these were a steal. Also in the center of the room, there was a delightful surprise of Halloween costumes. For your lovely princess, there were tiaras & magic wands. While for your princes, there were medieval knight costumes with wooden swords & shields.
The official public opening for this Bonpoint sample sale is today and it runs until Thursday. Since the YSL sample sale is just a floor below, I suggest all you mommy Mizhattanites drop by and see if you could get your little ones something stylish. After all, a mommy who deserves a little YSL also needs to dress their kids in a little Bonpoint. It might not be your kids' everyday clothing brand for some, but for special occasions and at these discounted prices, it might be just the trick (or treat).
