    Sorry, not fully fledged bogan unless he had matching trackie pants.

    I won't ask the uncomfortable question of where you obtained this clothing item from...

    Default do you dress your toddler dd in designer clothes? or know of anyone who does?

    I buy a few nicer things (gap, guess PPor RL) for going out for winter and summer each year then most other stuff from Kmart, target, best & less and myer. And may I say when on special! grows too quick and too much of a messy eater to sell things after he's worn them a few times.

    And must admit Kmart shorts and tshirts wash up pretty well! The tshirts I buy from there last ages and I wash after every wear.

    Seriously why care what other peoples kids wear. this thread is pathetic, i dont give a monkeys what other peoples kids wear as long as they are comfy and closed and neat ( when they leave the house lol ) who cares how much it cost.
    Clothes are not something I notice much on kids or adults. I have absolutely no interest in clothes/fashion. I would have no clue if a child was in a designer label or not, unless the name was spread across them and even then, I wouldn't know. I have not even heard of half the brand names mentioned in here, nor would I know where to get them.

    I still stand by my opinion that it is a waste of money, no matter how much money you have.

    I look for preloved and vintie designer clothes for my DD! And she has been given a few country road dressers and polo Ralph Lauren jacket but I can't afford to buy stuff like that unless it's on sale and a steal. DH is a relaxed surfer guy so DS lives in boardies and has quite a few billabong, quicksilver brands buy again most of those have been gifts or bought for a bargain!
    Each to their own what parents dress their children in.
    ETA:
    I a HUGE fan on handmade my DD frilly bum nappy covers, little bonds singlets with frills and appliqués. Load of crotchets dresses knitted cardies bibs headbands, pram blankets! I have to admit she always gets complimented when she is in her handmade stuff 😄

    Not everybody attaches status to a name sewn on a label (god knows where, and by who). It's a little insulting to declare, it's only a waste of money if you don't have it. Pfft. It would always be a waste of money to me. As a PP stated, quality made Australian owned brands would be top of the food chain for me - not "insert celebrity backed product name here".

    That's fair enough. But some people have said 'it's a waste of money' as a very general statement. I totally understand someone saying that for THEM it would be a waste of money - but for someone else it might not be.

    Most of my (and DD's) clothes are not designer, but some are. Those that are weren't bought as an attempt to impress anyone (and I don't like things with giant logos/ brands plastered all over them). But they weren't a waste of money either. I bought them because I loved them, and it makes me happy to see them. Not a waste.

    And for those who've mentioned giving to charity... Well who knows what other people give to charity? But I would hazard a guess that not everyone donates all their spare money to charities, and therefore we all have a degree of what others might consider 'waste' to spend as we choose.

    I don't understand how buying clothes that you like and that are of a good quality is a waste of money? If you can afford it then obviously it's not. I love buying clothes for dd and I. If I could afford it and it was to my taste, we both may well be dressed top to toe in designer and couture pieces.

    You might think spending money on *insert something boring such as lawn mower or double electric turbo diesel breast pump* is a great way to spend money. Each to their own.

    My dear friend starting planning her baby well ahead of TTC. She loves designer and spent 2 - 3 years decking out her babies wardrobe while she was still working. Before he got pregnant she had everything from car seat, pram, bed, shoes, bottles and clothes for a boy and girl 0000-1 plus bedding etc etc
    Now she has her beautiful girl she is still trying to keep up the labels but can't afford it any longer and needs to go back to work ASAP just to keep up with the wardrobe she told me she has so far spent about $4000 on baby clothes for her almost 6 month old.
    I buy my stuff from Target (pronounced TAR-JAY), and I think my kids look just as cute in their Target clothes as her daughter does in the brands :-)
    I'm all for it if you are cashed up but I don't see a need to get brand clothes for babies when they don't know better.
    I though will be starting to introduce surf and sport brands etc to my son in the next few years as he get closer to 10 and they become more aware of themselves and the labels on the clothes :-)
    For now though I'm al for good old target

    It's her business if she wants to dress her daughter in designer clothing. I don't see how it is affecting your life.
