    Default Seriously?? Arghh - petty vent -

    My daughters school is pretty strict on uniform (state school). Kids need to wear blue or they'll be asked to change into the school's stash of uniforms.

    So the search for blue trackies began last week as the weather got cooler.

    Our town's Big W is not getting school colour trackies AT ALL this year, because apparently it doesn't get cold enough her (2.5hrs north of brisbane, it gets cold enough!!). There is no where in town or the surrounding towns to get this colour trackies. What are we ment to do??
    How is it up to Big W head office to decided if kids get cold or not? They had them last year.
    Annoyed.

    eBay! There's lots of sellers with school basic trackies Also try Kmart and best n less or lowes if you have one nearby. My DD just outgrew her sz 10 royal blue pants- happy to pass in if they help

    If you have a best n less they usually try to stock the surrounding school colours and they have a great range of girls trackies and yoga pants. Does your kids school have a uniform shop? ,some sell second hand items cheap too.

    I got DD's at Best and Less - they had heaps and a few different shades of Blue too.

    Good luck, it drives me mad trying to get school stuff, would you believe I couldn't find navy stockings or knee-high socks in DD's size ANYWHERE for about 6 weeks?

    I managed to get the last sz 4 from best and less today, the rest are sz 8+.
    Lowes didint get any this yr, got no kmart and target have none yet. Uniform shop in town is ridiculously priced (like $30 for 1 pair!!).

    Will have to check out best and less on line

    Thank you heaps Atropos but my daughter is just fitting into sz 4 (even sz 4 i will have to take them up lol)
