    Kids clothes, how many summer dresses is too many :D

    I've just been looking at Next and there is at least 2 more outfits i REALLY want for my daughter, lol. I'm rubbish at clothes shopping for myself but i can't stop buying for my 3 year old !

    So how many summer outfits do you already have for your little ones?

    my little girl is completely kitted out for summer now but i buy at least a new outfit once a week for both my girl and boy so they have so much throughout the whole year. And thats not including what i buy on here x

    ive got to many to count and still buying, my sis has a little girl 12months older than mine so i get all her old clothes plus im always buying extra stuff and im always buying shoes, i love girls pretty summer sandals.

    i find it hard to buy for my son, boys clothes arnt as good as girls. the next stuff is lovely but id rather wait till hes in 12-18months so he gets more wear out of it, ive bought loads from the next sale in bigger sizes.

    so agree, i am pretty disappointed in next due to the boys range and it is so much smaller than the girls

    I now struggle buying my older girls stuff as they are out of the baby next cute stuff. They are too young in my eyes to be wearing some of the grown up girls stuff lol
    But my 3 yr old boy I buy and buy and buy for from Next. He ended up with way to many jeans that i had to get rid of some just to justify buying some of the new season ones!

    It really is bad isnt it. My girls used to have loads of the Next stuff, its adorable for girls upto 5 yrs.

    i think my daughter will be like that with her clothes, shes 18months now and 18-24 drown her and i can still see them being big for her when shes 2.

    I love the little girl cute clothes from Next, I don't really like the stuff now upto 5 years. All the yellow and blue stripes etc. I think it looks horrible! They need more pretty stuff for the girls!

    i feel bad because when i go shopping i dont even look at boys stuff sometimes, i think as im so use to looking for pretty pink cute girls stuff i just forget about boys clothes, hes growing fast, hes nearly 4months old and already his 3-6 just fit him, hes quite long. i bought him a gorgeous suit from next for when he gets christened.

    i bought my daughter a wardrobe with those double rails..and its jam packed with top rail for her now clothes and bottom rail for the ones that i bought in sales etc that are too big....

    i adore girl clothes...had 2 boys first and tbh i just kitted them out in asda as they were comfy cheap and boys clothes are so normal theres no point buying wow ones (had the odd designer in there)..but girls clothes....ooh its like clothes heaven!

    if you dont mind 2nd hand try ebay, ive bought my daughter some nice next dresses off ebay, better than paying full price when they wont wear them for long with the weather in england.

    im another next addict..X)
    iv got a boy and 2 girls and spend about £200 a month in next on clothes for the 3 of them... and i buy on here and ebay aswell.... im waiting on new wardrobes to come then will sort everything out, think they have quite a lot, but im obsessed lol
    agree theres nothing for older boys :-(
    also my 2 girls are 2 & 3 and i refuse to dress them in the same clothes so have to get seperate things ..

    So if we didn't buy the clothes and the workers in India didn't get a wage, what would happen to them? We pay quite good money for the items we buy, especially from Next. It's the shops and the workshop bosses that should be passing on the profits to their workers!

    tesco got half price or less on.... picked up more stuff.....better start changing her 2-3 times a day even if she hasnt made a mess of her clothes!!

    you take away the wages for the people in china/thailand/cambodia for starters you also force them to work longer hours to keep up export production

    if you think a couple of quid for a t-shirt/dress that you can throw way after wearing is "good money" then fair enough.

    also the big profit msrgins goto the retailers in case you dont know

    I love H&M for boys clothes and believe it or not.. peacocks, my sons favourite jacket is from there...it's stained with ink but he still loves it, last seasons though so cant get another to replace it.

    Next one of the best shops for children's clothes,I don't buy much in there for myself though. Girls fashion better than boys. I spent £70 other week in Next on my daughter for her birthday,I got her a few gifts too,so not all clothes.

    I don't get your point, we pay more than a few quid for a kids top from Next so they are not worn once and thrown away. As you can see from the kids section on here they are often sold on. Unless a item is damaged or worn out, i'll either sell it or pass it on to my neice. So i really don't get what your issue is, unless your saying we should all buy clothes from random ethical online shops?
