    Lol. I genuinely wonder if people look at my daughter and cringe.

    I despise branded clothing. Absolutely hate it. My MIL buys it all the time though, clothes with Thomas, Winnie the Pooh, Spider-Man etc. My kids wear them occasionally if DH has dressed them, but otherwise they stay in the cupboard and then make their way to charity.

    Yes!! This! Every birthday and Christmas DH's well meaning bogan family send us clothes for all the kids and they are hideous.
    DD just received an "Elmo" shirt and denim skirt which is just an eye sore.
    The boys got off scot free and got wii games!
    Elmo will be donated ASAP.

    I don't like character clothing either, but I give in and let them have the sleepwear, and sometimes socks, undies etc. I also don't mind using characters from books, eg Very Hungry Caterpillar or illustrations from Alice in Wonderland, as long as it's not from Disney etc.

    I don't like crass slogans, and I don't like anything on young girls that mimics older, sexualised fashion.

    I love headbands and clips, but DD has refused to wear them for months! So I've had to resort to scraping what little hair she has into a tiny little ponytail on top of her head.

    I also love Crocs, but only for kids. They're easy to take on and off and fun to wear. An alternative for Crocs haters are Natives, DS2 has a hot pink pair and they are gorgeous!

    I hate them too, the only clothes my children have that are sleeveless are sent from the mil in Ireland and I avoid dressing them in those as much as I can.

    For DD 18 months I hate/avoid big satin party dresses with the lace underskirts

    My mum has bought about 8 for dd, all cost well over $40 but and get worn for an hour or 2 they are just too uncomfy, she can't ride bikes, dig in the sand, pit or chase her cousins and she looks more like a toilet roll dolly that a little girl.

    I don't dress my boys in black and no music themed tshirts such as AC/DC etc.

    If I had a girl every single thing would be pink

    Pink is my favourite colour and after three boys I assumed I would go pink crazy with DD! But I've actually found that while we have a fair bit of pink, my favourite clothes by far are those that manage to be beautiful and girly, without being pink.

    Maybe it's because there's just *so much* pink around... when she's rocking an amazing blue dress she really stands out
