She doesn't wear pastels, and she is hard on shoes. I'd like the most expensive looking ones.

First or second.

Second if it was my DD. The third ones are definitely not.

TyrionLannistersShadow Sun 30-Oct-16 23:14:34

The first ones, the teal ones, definitely

LyndaNotLinda Sun 30-Oct-16 23:20:35

I don't understand what you mean by you'd like the most expensive looking ones but I prefer the chelsea boots - why don't you let her pick the colour?

Florathefern Sun 30-Oct-16 23:25:27

Well....I''d like the ones that look the most expensive. I'm unsure how to explain what that means - the dearest looking ones.

Sometimes buying from the internet can be misleading. I recently bought a pair from M&S and they look shoddy and very very cheap. They are less than a month old but they are ready for the bin.

My DD's wardrobe doesn't interest her in the slightest.

Purple

Why do these not come in an adult size 8 ??? I'd have all the colours,

My DD's wardrobe doesn't interest her in the slightest.
She is 4. I would not expect her wardrobe to be of any interest to her.
My dd was about 12 before she began to care about clothes.

My dd was about 12 before she began to care about clothes.

That is good to hear. I was a little worried when a PP advised me to let her choose herself. smile If it had the face of an animal she'd take an interest but a boot - no way.

BikeRunSki Sun 30-Oct-16 23:47:35

My DD is the same, she was 5 last week. She will only wear jogging bottoms or shorts on her lower half. Culottes for school uniform. Other than that, no interest.

Teal

Teal

I like the teal too. My DD (4) would go nuts for them. She is obsessed with shoes and clothes. Not in a horrible way but in a strange fashion/style way. She picks dress patterns and specifically asked for a trench coat in the spring. hmm

Thanks everyone.

BikeRunSki Mon 31-Oct-16 08:09:10

I actually like the Teal best too, but said purple because I thought it would be easier to coordinate with. But then, i wear a lot of purple.

Squirrelfruitandnutkin Mon 31-Oct-16 13:05:21

Dd had those purple ones - no 2. They were brilliant- wore well, skuffs polished out well with the neutral shoes polish cream stuff and went with everything. I think I sold them on eBay for about £15 once she out grew them!

Love the purple, love coloured boots on little girls so all your choices were good but the purple followed by the teal are fab.

Teal

mejon Mon 31-Oct-16 13:26:44

I ordered the teal ones for my 5yo last night. She had purple ones 2 winters ago and they lasted until earlier this year so she was due new ones. Free postage too. I'd love a pair in my size too grin. Next had some nice tan leather ones but they're sold out in the right size and price-wise they're not much cheaper than Start-rite.

thingsthatgoflumpinthenight Mon 31-Oct-16 14:41:40

Love the purple ones...

AndNowItsSeven Mon 31-Oct-16 14:44:59

The first ones, the second ones are ok , the third pair are hideous.

Florathefern Mon 31-Oct-16 15:17:40

Thanks again. I ordered the first pair last night and just received the email confirming they are on the way. I'm happy to read any scuffs can be polished out as I was so disappointed by the M&S ones.

I looked at the brown Next ones last week and wonder if they are the same as the ones referred by a PP. I liked the colour but they looked a little plastic to me. I also figure she will wear brown colour boots for long enough when she is older so I may as well enjoy colour on her at this age.

ScarletForYa Mon 31-Oct-16 15:19:56

Teal for sure.

mejon Mon 31-Oct-16 21:15:52

Mine (or rather DD's) are on their way too grin. I'm hoping there won't be any scratches to polish out on patent. The ones we had previously were plain leather and did get a bit scuffed but that was easily covered with purple shoe-polish.

Florathefern Thu 03-Nov-16 22:42:51

Hi Mejon - just wondering what you thought of the boots? Ours arrived but I think I will have to return. They are too big, too wide and I think they may gape at the ankle too much to wear with skirts and dresses. They look a little like cut off wellies. DD has ridiculously narrow feet and legs so I am unsure if that is the problem rather than the boots. What did you think of them?

SnowInLove Thu 03-Nov-16 22:46:51

My dd has the purple ones. I found them true to size and look lovely. My only gripes are that the zip often works it's way down and that they're too short to wear jeggings/leggings with. They look adorable with tights though.
