    Default Buying gender-specific clothes?

    Hi guys,

    I have had my eye on a GORGEOUS, pink Ralph Lauren tennis dress for years (in size 0).

    It's ridiculously expensive ($70), but I always said if I was ever having a girl, that would be my one luxury clothing purchase.

    I saw it at DJ's on sale for half price today and I was SO tempted to buy it! But I don't know whether we're having a boy or a girl yet!

    It feels like I'd be tempting fate if I bought it. Lol. Sounds silly I know, but I was too scared to buy it!

    Would you buy it? Have you bought any gender-specific clothing before knowing what you were having?

    I'm just curious

    I would have. I didn't know what I was having, and was poor, so I didn't... but in future I will.

    If it turns out I have the opposite gender than I had purchased the item for, I could always sell it on eBay, give it to a friend when they have a baby, or save it for if I have another.

    Hmmm...

    Maybe I should pick an RL item for a boy that's half price too, and that might cancel out my superstition?

    Lol.

    I bought most girly things before I found out the sex of my bub. I also bought some unisex clothes and a few boys clothes. I've now found out I'll be having a girl so I've put my boy clothes away for the next pregnancy or for gifts
