As a mother of 5 girls I really know what you mean, but everyone has a different opinion or style, so it depends what you define as beautiful, and how much you can afford. I don't have too much time for shopping, but I do give myself or my girls a treat every once in a while. According to my experiences you can always get bargains everywhere. I usually make a cap on how much I am ready to spend and try to stick with it. I choose a different mall every time sometimes its daffy's, century 21, macy's syms, or a large shopping mall or outlet, and sometimes it might even be at walmart. The quality of walmarts apparrel sometimes exceeds the most expensive brands so you really get a bargain at both ends. For boutique style clothing I found e-land and guisswein to be the strongest quality ever. You can also get excellent bargains online, and on e-bay. I type in the brand I am looking for and usually get very good buys.

Enjoy your shpping experience

I don't spend a lot of $ on my kids' clothing. They're outside most of the time, and they also grow out of things so quickly. Kohl's and Target are my 2 favorite stores to shop for my kids. Both places have cute children's clothing at very reasonable prices. Another suggestion, if you can sew, (I wish I had that talent), is to make your girls' dresses for special occasions, or even make their costumes for Halloween. You can also take very plain clothing (solid T-shirts, leggings and jeans) and add lace or other accents to them to dress them up. It also helps that you can pass clothes down from one sibling to the next. That has saved us a lot of $ as well. Hope this helps.

We found an online free site, where folks list stuff they have no use for and it is given free to anyone that responds with the need. It can be found in Yahoo groups it is called .

We have outfitted three families of children with this service, and it cost us very little, just to go and pick up the stuff.
