I can't find 18m dd a coat. I don't like the Boden ones at the moment and Gap just have pink shiny which is a bit old for her I think. Anyone know of anything similar or ideas of where to look?

have you looked in debenhams?

tandsmummy Mon 06-Oct-08 23:21:13

no- are there any in there? I always forget Debenhams.

lisad123 Mon 06-Oct-08 23:23:05

asda have some lovely ones in atm

ja9 Mon 06-Oct-08 23:23:32

i love debenhams kids clothes. i bought dd 2 fab coats there in the sale last winter that she is wearing now. having said that i'm not sure what you class as bodeny / gappy although i like both their stuff so chances are we like the same stuff iyswim!!!

tandsmummy Mon 06-Oct-08 23:30:55

no I Like Debenhams but don't get there v. often as it's a bit more of a trek. But good idea thanks.

John Lewis, but their website is not very good.

Got a nice one in navy for my dd from Zara - suitable for school and out of school

I got a gorgeous practical super warm one in good old M&S. They've got some lovely clothes for little girls. it was about £20

another vote for asda....their toddler girl stuff is very bodeny at the moment....saw a lovely brown coat with coloured polka dots on it....

JulesJules Tue 07-Oct-08 11:31:49

H&M, M&S both have some lovely ones atm. Also like Monsoon, but v expensive, good sale rail though.

tandsmummy Tue 07-Oct-08 20:42:12

Thanks all. I am on a mission to get something tomorrow! I'm also going to have a quick look on ebay as well.

I'd second the Debenhams recommendation. I've been looking for a coat for DD (18 months) for a while but wasn't impressed with most - too much fake fur/shiny plastic/applique/sequins etc. Bought this one, but actually having looked at the website I might take it back and get this!

Drinkypops Tue 07-Oct-08 20:57:06

Another vote for H&M, I got my dd the coat newgirl mentioned, she looks really cute in it (she is 21 months btw)

tandsmummy Tue 07-Oct-08 21:04:40

Yes flippineck, quite agree! Can't understand all the shinyness and fur! Has anyone bought a Jojo duffle coat? Are they warm? JoJo duffle

hana Tue 07-Oct-08 21:11:01

no - the jojo ones are just fleece, not really warm enough to last through a winter I don't think (friends' ds had one lasT YEAR)

MrsThierryHenry Tue 07-Oct-08 21:17:35

If price is the issue, I buy my DS loads of great Gap clothes on ebay - still in good nick, and v funky!

ravenAK Tue 07-Oct-08 21:20:42

I got a gorgeous purple velvety cord coat from Matalan the other day for dd1 (2). £12. V traditional style as prob worn by our own dear Queen & Princess Margaret Rose as gels grin

NorbertDentressangle Tue 07-Oct-08 21:22:41

How about La Redoute or Vertbaudet ?

peachygirl Tue 07-Oct-08 21:32:37

should we join forces??

tandsmummy Tue 07-Oct-08 21:53:19

I think we should lol! Sorry for starting a new thread everone! I think I've gone full circle- I ordered the light pink with brown spots coat that TheBlonde suggested but didn't like the colouring of it in the flesh! It went back! Am going to order the same thing but the plain ole red one instead (think it has pink lining). Bit boring yes but at least no hideous fur/shine and warm!!
