20 Most Shockingly Expensive Kid + Baby Clothes

It’s fairly innocent looking, but that darling hat up there will set you back a whopping $106. If your kid is anything like mine, that $106 will be quickly thrown off the stroller, left at a playground, or covered in grape jelly within the day. And yet, you can’t deny it, the desire to spoil our children and outfit them in the very best is a strong one. Hence, even in a recession, there exists a $106 dollar hat for your six-year-old.

Based off an informal poll of my Twitter followers, the consensus seems to be that $50 per item seems to be the very top of the baby wardrobe budget (for me, personally, I stop at the $40 mark). What about you? How much would you be willing to spend on a single item for the apple of your eye?

After the jump, a collection of the most exorbitantly priced baby clothes I could find on the web (and I’m sure I am missing some gems!). Give them a gander and let me know, how much would you spend on a single item for your baby’s wardrobe?
