Shop North Iowa: New Kids Line at Real Deals

Guess what, north Iowa! Real Deals in Mason City has launched a new kids/pre-teen/mommy and me line and I couldn't be more excited! Last week I attended their fashion show launch in the store (this was actually my first visit ever) and was excited at all the unique items in store. If you follow my Instagram, you know that I've been ordering from some online boutiques and small shops to try and diversify the baby's wardrobe from the standard Target lines (which we all know are super cute, but sometimes it's fun to have something special that not everyone else owns).

The $10 ticket I purchased got you into the opening, early shopping privileges after the show, snacks, and a swag bag. Just the swag bag was worth the $10! Here are a handful of the items in mine. I was super excited about the bows, and even more excited to see that the bows were from one of the online shops I had just ordered from online, Bailey's Blossoms!

The show featured a fun mix of girls and boys clothes (which can be so hard to find!), mommy and me, and some pre-teen clothes. As the mom of an almost-12 year old, it was exciting to see styles that were age appropriate. It's tough at that age because things so often seem too young or too old. The princess wears a lot of leggings and sweatshirts to be comfortable, but she enjoys dressing up, too. I bought her one shirt (stay tuned to Instagram for that picture, she hasn't had a chance to wear it yet), a mix of stripes and florals with a cold shoulder design, but wanted her to be able to come and pick out some of her own clothes.

There were lots of florals, which I love right now, and some flannel and lace, also very popular. I bought Evelyn a red lace body suit that I can't wait to break out around Valentine's Day and a few other special occasions coming up! Prices seemed reasonable, pretty comparable to most of the online boutiques I was ordering from - and WAY more budget friendly than some of the online boutiques I didn't order from! We'll be headed back, for sure, but if you're not in the Mason City area, you can shop their stuff online.
