I’m almost embarrassed to admit that while the brand has been on my radar for a very long time, this is the first time we’ve ever ordered clothing for JetSet Tot from Tea Collection. The styles are always so adorable, but for some reason I always ended up going with the old faithfuls like Peek! Are You Curious?, Crew Cuts or Ralph Lauren for kids. I’m a creature of habit and those brands have worked for us for ages.
I decided to take advantage of their after Christmas sale and I’m sure glad I did. I was able to snag five great summer pieces for under $50.00 which made me so happy. This was the perfect way for us to try Tea Collection for sizing, wash, wear and comfort without having to invest a small fortune right out the gate. Because let’s face it. The pieces in the collection are gorgeous and it would be almost impossible to order just one item.
It’s important to note that I also opt for pricier brands simply because I’ve had a much better experience with them wash after wash. At one point I found myself spending more money on clothes from Target because they we made cheaper than the ones I bought at GAP Kids. It was a true wake-up call. While I am a big advocate of donating, I also need to be wise with my money. So in order to pay for Tot’s next round of clothing, I usually sell her old stuff to high-end kids consignment stores. Then the pieces that aren’t accepted to go Good Will. And I can tell you from history, the designer brand name clothes are the items that keep on giving. I see them more as an investment.
Having never purchased from Tea Collection before, I was apprehensive on the sizing, but the items seem more on the generous/true-to-size side. I think Tot will get one season out of the jumpers and two, possibly even three, out of the tops and dress. I can already tell they are a ready-to-pack, travel ready brand which I love.
Thanks to Tea Collection, I’m very pleased with the selection and I look forward to check out what they have to offer when it comes time to roll-out the next season’s designs.
