Shopping Spree!

My mom warned me to get plenty of clothes or our baby girl before moving to Brazil because things there are EXPENSIVE nowadays.  So needless to say, when I went to Divisoria with a friend of mine this week, I didn’t let the fact that “baby won’t fit into this for at least another year or two” stop me.

So maybe I went a big overboard, but then I got home and regretted not buying more (now who wants to go back to Divisoria with me?).  So this is what 50 bucks gets you at Divisoria:


And yes, that IS a bumblebee swimsuit on the bottom right (complete with lycra wings and stinger on the back!  I should have bought more sizes!!).

I also got a couple of cute collapsible baby hampers…


I have no idea why expats are hesitant about going to Divisoria on their own.  “Oh bring a Filipino to help you navigate” and so on.  Sure, there are parts there that are a bit crazy, but if you’re looking for bags and clothes, just go to the malls (999 and 168 are the two I go to) and then you’re in a mall with stands, crazier than your normal mall, sure, but loads cheaper too!

Editing to say:  Our original baby girl has not been forgotten, and has been prancing around town wearing this…

  1. OMG. Lily. Too cute!

    And that bumblebee costume! SQUEEEE!!! Love the zebra dress too. Stock up! Baby clothes are small 🙂

    • At least baby clothes take less space than mine, makes me less guilty about moving across the world with them!

      And isn’t the bumblebee the cutest thing? I should have bought a bigger size too, so she can show off at the beach in Rio!
