Trying to find a pretty coat for my 3 year old dd, suitable for autumn/winter.

Budget of about £35 (preferably cheaper). Reluctant to spend much more because she's growing so quick

Any recommendations?

Watching with interest, I have been looking but can't find anything pretty that is also practical and warm.

I'd be happy to help, but it's a little early - lots of places are still on sale (think Monsoon, Aztec).

Alternatively I can send you my DD's old winter coat - a gorgeous machine washable pinky-beige velvet. It's a little worn, but still very pretty smile

You are right about it being early Anna. The weather is forcing me to look for one but the shops haven't changed for the new season yet.

Thanks for the offer of your dd's coat. It's very generous of you but dd is sensitive to most detergents so will need to buy something new.

Do you like this sort of style?

Vertbaudet coat

Or this from Trois Suisses (more expensive)?

I like the styles but prefer lighter colours. Thanks for the suggestions though

There's this one from JoJo
Or a shorter one here
from Frugi (I've got this one for my little girl).

The Frugi one is lovely and a great price. Thanks.

<proper cheeky>

Your dd's coat sounds gorgeous Anna - how much would you want for it? My dd2 needs a new coat too!

Anna8888 Wed 27-Aug-08 09:58:43

Moomin - what size is your DD? Weight in kilos/height in cms?

I'll happily send it to you for free - I'd love it to have a good home smile.

Moomin Wed 27-Aug-08 10:22:48

ooooo! She's nearly 3 but still in age 2-3 clothes and is tallish but v.slim - no idea how much she weighs really blush

my email address is If you email your address I'll send a SAE big enough for a coat!

thanks so much!

Anna8888 Wed 27-Aug-08 10:27:09

Don't worry about the SAE as I'm in France - there really is no need to worry about payment of any sort. But I need your address - I'll email you right now.
