Mothercare trousers are ok, but found the vests/tops all stretched, not great quality for the price. I didn't pass on anything to 2nd dc from mothercare. Mainly H&M for me or gap/boden with a discount for stuff I'm handing down from ds1 to ds2 & ds3!
I have seem H&M and Next have got some nice things, I dont usually shop in Mothercare although when I went in there the other day I was quite impressed some of their boys products looked really nice and their 3 pack t-shirts and fleeces seemed good value for money for nursey clothes
I love all the Scandinavian brands - Smafolk, Mini a Ture, Molo, Phister and Philina, Polarn O Pyret etc. Some more expensive, but generally excellent quality and not as pricey as you may imagine (especially when they actually last in good condition until grown out of). I love the clothes from Bonpoint, but could never afford them and doubt I'd actually spend that much on 'ordinary' day-to-day clothes anyway. I tend to look at their website and then see what Zara has to compare to re-create the looks at a fraction of the price. I'd say most of DD's clothes are from Zara. Ilovegorgeous is fabulous, but only for the odd thing because, again, expensive. I love nice childrens' clothes - my weakness.
M&S, Primark and Next mostly. Or eBay. Or hand-me-downs.
Much as I love all the posh brands I couldn't justify that kind of money, and my DCs have decidedly high street taste anyway. The DDs (10 and 8) took one look at the Boden catalogue and went "Bleurgh!"
Sainsbury's, asda, m&s, next and h&m. John Lewis do lovely stuff too and great quality but couldn't afford to get everything from their just the odd thing. For stuff to hand down definitely John Lewis. Gap do fantastic fleece lined jeans for winter.
