the only designer thing i buy my DD is her princess ratbag skirts which she gets for her birthdays.. other then that its just the normal.
same with DS
And even if I adored it, if it was the most awesome thing I have ever seen I still could not justify spending $100 on a shirt just because I like it,
If I had the money I could justify spending extra (not $100 though) for a shirt either Australian made and owned and for things that do not use child workers etc
but not just because I liked it,
I also could not justify buying a 1 / 2 / 3 million dollar house when you can get a decent 4/5 bedder around here for 500 - 750 thousand.
I'd make a terrible "rich snob" lol no one would even know I had money
I'm another that grew up poor and is at some of the prices of kids clothes. They grow out of them so fast. I will admit I'm snobby with shoes. My kids have only the best shoes, but not bc of the name but bc nike or brooks, or clarkes school shoes last years longer than the cheap ones.
So I go for quality and get my stuff off ebay. I've bought brand new clarkes and nikes off ebay for $15 each
I don't buy designer labels like Versace, Burberry etc, but I'm sure I would if I could as it would all be relative. DD has a lot of Sprout & Kmart, Target & some Marie Claire & Origami which are a bit more expensive. If I like something & I can afford it, I buy it .
I don't see the biggie with anyone dressing their kids in whatever labels they wish - it doesn't bother either way!

I just don't get why people are so preoccupied with what other people are doing when it is not affecting them at all.
Secondly, I hate these post that say things like 'my friend does this' or 'I saw a mum do this' and it's basically a thinly veiled 'judge them with me, aren't they bad' conversation starter.
Yes, not everyone can afford designer clothing, nor would everyone even be interested in it if they could, but get over it, she is simply doing her own thing. If someone started a thread bagging someone for dressing their child in clothing from Big W they would be shot down in flames in 2 seconds flat for being judgemental.
