    I agree with the PP about shipping from the US. I use hopshopgo and order from gap/old navy, Carter's/ Oshkosh and get massive bargains. Earlier this year I did a big order- lots of kids clothes, some maternity for me, a few things for DH, all up it was $800 (Including international shipping) for 5 pairs of shoes (1 for me, 2 pairs of kids converse and 2 pairs of kids sandals that are over $120/pair here) plus 63 items of clothing. I won't have to buy kids clothes for any of my three all next year.
    I've also recently discovered endless.com who do free shipping to Australia with orders of over $100. I have an app called pitter pad on my iPad that measures kids feet and have ordered kids and adult shoes from there. DH just got three pairs of fashion sneakers (leather pro-keds, pumas and a converse-type pair for $112)- and they arrived just a couple of days after we ordered them.

    I make all of my girl's skirts, dresses and shirts. I also make her hats and underwear, singlets and pjs.

    I only need to buy her shoes and socks.

    It's very cheap, a skirt will cost me about $1, and I can choose what colour, fabric, print and length I want.

    Pumpkin Patch my kids live in the stuff!! i find their clothing lovely & great quality.
    bonus is im signed up to emails/fb and get all their sales in advance. i just fill the basket from time to time then when a 20% off + free delivery comes along i buy it all best thing is the prices are already discounted prior to the 20% off as there's a sale section for summer & winter

    shop online! I love GAP when the US dollar is weak . They have gorgeous quality clothes esp pants and shorts and I get them for around $13 (look out for sales). this site currently has a nothing over $10 sale. I have bought about $300 worth of clothing and the quality is outstanding!...and the items are gorgeous too http://www.lookingatyoukid.com.au/ca...ng-over-%2410/

    i have tried buying from Ralph Lauren but the site said it doesn't ship to Aus .can you link me to the site you use?
