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

    No Versace but my kids wear 'brand name' clothing - surf and sports brands mainly with a few cotton on kids pieces thrown in to the mix

    I used to buy the kids Childcare, preschool, round the house clothes from Target or Kmart but their wear is awful - 1 season at best before stretched out of shape and faded!

    I have a tee shirt that has lasted DS1 for 2 seasons and DS2 for 2 seasons and now onto my nephew - may cost more but it's value for money!

    Having 2 children of the same sex u look at the price tag and halve it lol knowing it will def go through two kids - shopping smart is the key too, buying end of season for the next year is an easy way or online!

    I buy what I like. Day care clothes are Target or Kmart or Cotton on Kids and for non day care days she wears Pumpkin Patch, Target basics, Sooki, Seed, Sprout etc.

    I don't dress her in so many frills that she can't roll around, at 17 months dd likes the rough and tumble and digging in the garden so I try not to worry about her getting dirty.

    I think seeing children draped in obvious labels is pretty tacky. In saying that, we received a gorgeous Guess outfit that happened to have the name emblazoned on the front and she wore it a couple of times.

    I will add that I don't consider the names mentioned designer per se but I know others have mentioned them.

    DD has a couple of nice designer things for special occasions. Other then that I pretty much only shop at target or myer for her clothes. They are good quality and last till she outgrows them. Kmart go out of shape too quickly.

    Define "designer". If you mean Versace and other haute couture designers, then no I definitely don't dress my kids in designer clothes. DS wears Target, BigW or Best n Less most of the time. I like to get him some Country Road tshirts in summer but even they are very expensive.

    I recently discovered the second hand baby markets that communities do (like the 'Reuse It Baby' one), and have picked up a heap of gorgeous clothes for DD really cheaply (all Fred Bare, Jack & Milly, Seed, Origami, Sprout etc).

    I love getting beautiful clothes for DD, but don't care what brand they are or if they're second hand. If they are beautiful and in good condition that's all that matters to me.

    I don't give a rats if they get dirty as they wash and wear really well, I stupidly listened to SIL and bought him $15 best and less jeans and they had 2 wares before fading and falling apart!
    Wow that is cheap for Ralph Lauren, I have A plain pink cardigan that I bought for DD who is 1 from a Ralph Lauren store and i paid $100 for it.
    I have been in the same position as the person that the poster is referring to where my mil talks about me for my children wearing expensive clothes all the time and she gives me a hard time about it but I tell her it's none of her business what I dress my children in. I love beautiful children's clothes and it's a passion/obsession for me. i dont think its extravagant to spend $60 on a pair of size 1 sooki baby pink skinny leg jeans because to me they are gorgeous/ not designer but gorgeous to me and it's like Xmas day when for example the day comes for oobi summer release. I don't have a problem sending my children to preschool in country road and i certainly dont think country road is designer, it's each to their own and it does not bother me or do I think about what others dress their children in.

    Not really 'designer' but dd has clothes with labels that match us. for instance she has a bit of KTM and THOR gear that shes been given so she matches daddy, holden racing team shirts etc... more like sponsership clothes lol she got some cute roxy/billabong stuff given to her when a friend sold a surf shop but shes pretty much in kmart clothes.

    This baby just got given a whole lot of NIKE stuff when my boss went to LA and now dh wants to keep adding to it but ive just told him SHE can afford to dress him in labels lol im not chasing nike stores for newborn threads.

    Versace make kids' clothes? O_o

    The only clothes I've bought for my daughter that could be considered designer are things I've got from etsy or madeit. Otherwise she's dressed in anything from Seed (not usually though as I find it a bit of a ripoff) to secondhand bonds stuff I got on eBay.

    My sister, who's now in her 30s, wore a hand me down black velvet Christian Dior onesie as a baby. A few years ago I saw it on a family friend's child. Pretty cool to think its still kicking around somewhere

    Sorry but I can't stand seeing small children in designer clothes. It seems like such a waste and makes children look pretentious!

    Personally as long as a child is dressed I don't give a monkeys if it's Fred bear or Ralph or best and less as long as they are dressed tidy and clean, if someone thinks it's protensiuos for my dd to wear her her nice clothes I do not care some of her stuff is expensive done cheap Stuff from best and less, today she was in her roxy track suit and her ugg boots
    So yes looked like a btight pink bogan but shr was warm That is the main thing, the other day she had on her guess jeans with a 3 dollar top from target again she was clean and tidy I do not care if people think its wrong
