Can only afford one outfit for the children, would you pick this ?
It's for the day after a wedding lunch with family/Christmas bazzar (in November) and then Church in December. My kids mainly live in clothes that have been rolled in grass/horse shit so I buy one trendy/smart thing per season, just wondering if this is the best we can do ?
If anyone see a nicer alternative It needs to go with brown suede ankle boots and pink ankle boots as that's what they have and be warm as they don't ever want to wear a jacket or coat. And the older one looks awful in skirts and won't wear trousers. TIA
I think there are nicer things in JL - though not sure if they're all avail online.
If you are on a budget next have some reasonable things at the mo
Also mini-Boden are doing a 4 for the price of 3 promotion which brings them down considerably - but you have to make sure that the 4 things you get are more or less the same price, bcs they give you the cheapest one free.
But I would go for DAnish/Dutch brands on eBay (new) if I were you. Same kind of price.
Verbaudet seem about the same price and I didn't like the quality 8 years ago, although fully appreciate that may have changed. There's a grey knitted dress in JL but I worried that might be a bit bland ? They don't have to wear the same.
the grey dress in zara is more dressed up than a knitted dress, its got funny pleating on the front (i'm really selling it well}. my dd had one last year and she had a frilly collar shirt with it in white, a bright pink roll neck with matching tights and a blue top and tights combo of some kind. i found it quite versatile(sp?)
