A tshirt from Best and Less is lucky to last 3 washes before you have to throw it out and the stains are so much harder to get out of their stuff. Where my son has been wearing some of his better branded stuff for 3 and 4 seasons and they still look immaculate- even when he plays in the dirt or paints And my kids only wear converse shoes. My son even has a couple of pairs as he has to have a certain colour for school. They wash and wear brilliantly and FWIW- even at full price I have never seen kids ones for $90 a pair. I don't think I even paid that for my husbands! Mind you we are seriously getting ripped off. My DD's shiny pink ones were brought back from the US costing a whole $10. Same shoes are being sold in David Jones for $55 (full price) No wonder Hop, Shop Go is a thriving businessDoesn't it go with your juicy couture trackies?
    Not sure how you wash your clothes but ALL of ds's clothes are kmart, best & less and some target / big w.

    The kmart & best and less stuff has lasted and is in fabulous condition for my next bub,

    My ds is a grot, if he even so much as blinks his clothes are somehow filthy :/

    I am the mum who looks like she never cleans her kid cos he just seems to attract dirt so badly.

    No. I don't think designer equals more stylish either. I mix everything up. DS grows way too fast to bother. We do have a few nice things that people have given us or stuff I bought when pregnant but he grows out of it so quickly it seems silly. I love easy wash and wear.

    The only designer clothes my kids wear is from local WAHM's.

    Sorry there was once a dress, but I did pay for it dd brought it herself and only later found out it was a designer dress. It was her prom dress.

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

    DS wears second hand or target to daycare and around the house.

    When we go out he wears a range of tommy, mossimo, Wayne jnr, industrie etc. all labels but not quite the calibre of Versace. I just like the look of them more and find the quality much better. That being said, I've never once paid full price. I hit the sales out of season and usually pay 1/3 of the price. For a pair of mossimo shorts that's about $15... Cheaper than target

    You just have to be smart about your shopping !

    Im not opposed to having some designer clothes for my children, but I also wouldn't care if they got those designer clothes dirty - they're kids. I still roll in the dirt with my nephew when I'm wearing really nice clothes without caring so why would I get upset if my kids did that too? It's just clothes anyway.

    Ewww I loathe slogans and wording on kids clothes (or any for that matter).

    Worst is:
    50% angel
    50% devil

    Seems like we have the same standards lol.

    Black track pants for daycare, dark jeans any other time (although using track pants more lately as ds is toilet training).

    If its pilly it gets rewashed and if its stretched out of shape its either a daycare shirt or cleaning rag depending on how bad its stretched.

    No slogans either, really not a fan of slogans unless they're cute ones.


    Alot of dss winter shirts did have pictures which ment he had to wear plain coloured jeans but i have found alot of lovely plain coloured stuff as well, and a wide variety including pink in the boys section.

    No special care either, its washed in reject shop washing powder and either chucked on the line or in the drier depending on how lazy i am feeling.

    I avoid anything that requires ironing, hate ironing clothes.

    Although i do find picture shirts don't fair well in the drier.

    You must have had a really bad run or choose very different stuff to me from there lol.

    Do Versace actually do kids clothes? That's just not a brand I ever associated with children. I'm kinda curious what Versace kids would look like now. Off to google, lol.

    Just googled, and wow they do! I'm surprised. Must say the boys suit does look rather dapper, but all the gold stuff for the girls may be a tad over the top. Black diamante studded dress is rather cute though. Looks more wearable than I expected.

    Considering I never buy such designer things for myself I'm not about to start for my kids however.
