About 5 years ago I bought a few nice basics for dd1 from Verbaudet - packs of plain cotton tops and twin packs of cord trousers. I stopped ordering from them after they totally failed to deliver something and I had to savage them for my cash. Now dd3 is 2.5 and seems to have grown out of everything I want to buy a few bits for her - a couple of plain skirts and a pinafore dress and some tights. So I've gone on Verbaudet on line and it looked crap. Horrid things, nothing classic at all and only one possible brown skirt. Also the nice tights were £17 upwards. I don't know where all the lovely twin packs of stuff went? And since when did tights cost that much?
I've looked at Boden but I don't really want to spend £20 upwards per item and I'm at work all week so time shopping in actual shops is short.
Can anybody suggest websites? I want nice, plain, cosy classic stuff. When I do get to shops I like Gap but I never get on with Next or M&S really. Dd3 is 2.5 and I would be looking to buy age 3 for her. She'sa reasonable size and age 2 just won't cut it.
I had a look at vertbaudet and they class under 2 as 'baby' so if you are looking at the 3 year old stuff you are right it is all different. JoJo Maman Bebe do plain cord pinafores online £16 each and you save £5 if you buy 2. 2 pack of tights £10 (but I have to say I do like Next for girls tights) They seem to have lots of plain or stripey stuff and not splashed with fairies and princesses etc

I like mini mode too but our in town Boots moved store - hurrah I though - now everything is on one level I won't have to battle in to the lift to look at the baby stuff. Fat chance! The baby stuff was all elbowed - they now do nappies and food and that's it. You have to go out of town to get the clothes.
is that web address right? No clothes that I can see!
NA - those are all very sweet but I just want something very plain that will go with everything she already has. I like that autograph pinafore set but they don't have it in her size. Thanks ever so for looking though.
I used to use Jako-o quite a bit, but it's all priced in Euros and the exchange rate isn't very favourable now. It's really good quality basics though, their stuff washes really well and lasts for ages.
