Hartstrings Review ~ Beautiful Holiday Outfits

by Carrie Wells, Ed.D.
MomSelect offered members the chance to visit a local Hartstrings store to purchase holiday outfits for their children. I jumped on the opportunity to get beautiful new clothes for Lydia and Bryce. We decided to go to the mall as a family today. Little did I know that they were having a huge sale!

As you can see in the sign in the photograph, "Take an Additional 25% off the Entire Store" and to my surprise, all of the holiday items were already 50% off. The customer service associate kindly informed us of the sale and asked if we had any questions.

They had a great selection of holiday outfits for boys and girls! We started by shopping for Lydia. She wears a size 2T/24 months, and they had lots of styles to choose from in that size. I picked out one outfit and Richard picked out another. We had Lydia choose which one she liked more.

Possible outfits for Lydia
Even though Bryce is only 10 weeks old, he is already in a size 6 months. Here were the two possible outfits for him.

Possible outfits for Bryce
We selected our outfits and brought them to the cashier to pay.

Cost: $52.95          Savings $85.05
So which outfits did we choose?? Here they are!

These outfits are perfect living in Florida. Lydia's dress is made of a sweater material, but it's short-sleeved, so it won't be too warm. It would pair nicely with an off-white cardigan. We also purchased a coordinating red bow to style her hair. Bryce's outfit is long sleeves and pants, but made of lightweight materials so it's not too warm either. They had other options like corduroy pants and heavier sweaters for colder weather. Unlike most other pants for children under a year of age, Bryce's khakis have a real button and zipper, along with the elastic strips on each side to cinch the waist.

I always thought Hartstrings was out of our price range, but now I know that they have amazing sales that make the clothing affordable regardless of budget. I was impressed by the wide selection of items and the friendly staff members. Overall, this was a very successful shopping trip!
