[quote="finallyx":2wczpp1d]i feel the same but i now have a 6 year old that wants to dress like the teenagers wearing near or next to nothing and i think "omg where did this come from, i don't dress like that even going out with the girls on a mad one" so its a constant row with us when shopping, i have started bringing her with me to avoid the constant other row we have of "i'm not wearing that" so at least i can say back "you picked it, you wear it"!!!! dear lord, and everything has to be some form of pink.. with number 2 who is 13 months i go out of my way not to buy pink now!! anyway rant over there but i agree totally a lot of the clothes are not very appropriate and also whats the story with the low rise jeans etc for little girls my little one constantly has a builders arse!!![/quote:2wczpp1d]
hey cant wait.. i know its so annoying, she was at summer camp last week with older kids in it and she came home saying that when she sat down the people behind her started to laugh.. does wearing a belt help? she won't wear one for me...
My DD is nearly 7 & I used to love clothes shopping with her but now I hate even the thoughts of it. I now have to shop for her on my own because when we go together she sees all these outfits that wouldn't look out of place in a nite club & can't understand why I won't buy them for her.
Oh & she'd be more than happy to dress like a pussy cat doll
I know how you feel its hard enought to get cute clothes for kids, i really dont like adams clothes they can be way to over the top. Ive two neices and my sis is always going on about it.
I even feel some stores like next have picked up on the trendy clothes thing for boys and girls. My dp could wear some of the clothes i have for my ds if they fitted him.
Generally the independently owned stores have very cute things but can be a bit pricey, but im really into benetton at the moment for kids clothes.
Next are fab for boys clothes
I used to love shopping for girlie stuff for DD & hate shopping for boys stuff but it's changed now
I always find Marks and Spencer to have gorgeous girls clothes that are appropriate to age.
I love having boys, they would go out in anything if you let them
I like the dresses in Monsoon for girls they are very pretty.
I bought loads of new things for my girls in Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Kids in the States this year....but I couldnt have afforded to buy them here though!!!
i am a non parent also but had to resort to catamini in a boutique for a pressi as NEXT( the old reliable for friends kids presents is gone so skimpy)especially for girls. OMG .
catamini have gorgeous kids clothes but sooo expensive- there was a fab pink dress for 140 yo yos !!
its terrible the way kids clothes have gone far too adult
I agree. I have an almost 4 year old and some of the clothes would be too skimpy for a teenager.
I actually dont find Next too bad, their stuff is fashionable but most of it is acceptable. Adams is awful, and Dunnes is pretty bad too. I got DD1 some lovely trousers and tops in H&M.
For the butt crack jeans, I've ended up buying long t-shirts or short dresses for DD1 and she wears them over the jeans.
