We buy most of our girls clothes from Twice As Nice, the local consignment shop. Occasionally, we pick something up at Costco or Target. The bottom line is price.
For shoes, however, I just can't bring myself to buy plastic shoes at Payless and other similar shops. Put plainly, "cheap" shoes tend to be sweaty, smelly, and blister-inducing.
The bottom line for shoes is comfort (and breathability). I'll pay a little extra for good quality.
Pediped shoes fall in that category. They're well-made, soft, durable, and beautifully contoured to fit the feet of toddlers and kids. Prices range from $23-$69. BUT, there's also a SALE section, with shoes as low as $12.
Our 3-year-old has these Grip n Go Emily maryjanes ($40). The details are super sweet and she can put them on herself with ease:
