BEST PLACE TO BUY KIDS' CLOTHES (2006)

Petite Ch�teau

If dressing for success gets you ahead in this world, then kids outfitted at Petite Chteau are destined to be doctors, lawyers, and maybe even president. The shop carries True Religion jeans, Lucky Brand, and tons of Juicy Couture. Sure, not everyone is willing to pay $40 for a layette, but this is the kind of place you go to splurge, not to pinch pennies. We can't get enough of Chteau's boys' line. It can be difficult to find trendy boys' duds that aren't preppy, so check out Italian designer Rare's edgy, modern tees and pants, which hover in the $40-to-$60 range. Screen-printed tees and layettes with clever sayings are really hot this year, and Petite Chteau is right on top of that trend. Our favorite is the "Does This Diaper Make My Butt Look Big?" onesie by Haute Stuff. Who knows what's on baby's brain before she can communicate, but if it's anything like her Mommy, that question is already on her mind.
