who can still fit into kids clothes/shoes.

I thought it might be nice to share our bargain buys.

I think it was VerityBrulee who got the Stella McCartney for GAP Kids trench coat, which reminded me that I used to regularly buy childrens clothes but seem to have stopped looking recently.

Since them I've bought:

this mini boden ruffle cardigan in gold, age 13-14. What a bargain- it's really lovely on, perfect fit and I'm size 8-10 with large bfing boobs.

Have ordered Jones Bootmaker boots, waiting for them to be delivered so will report back.

Another pair of boots from Jones.

All a fraction of the price of adult clothes, so please come and share your best buys smile.

Great idea for a thread..

I bought these Boden boots and I love them - out of stock in the 'bigger' sizes now though.

Like the first pair of Jones boots you linked to but out of stock in my size (36)

I'm 5ft1 and size 8 by the way!

Wow, fab thread. I am an 8/10 and 5'2" so probably fit into this category.

LOL weepootle, I was out shopping today in my gapkids jacket and mini boden cardigan (gold same as yours - dd has it in 5-6, I have to make sure we don't wear them at the same time!)

Love the boots zembo, I ordered last year's version of them but they only came half-way up my calves (I'm only 5ft btw), those ones you have look higher.

I've got those boots too zembo - got them last week.

Really verity? lol!!

I have the same problem with dd1 (5)- have to make sure we don't wear our boden duffles together (mine's green, age 11-12), I couldn't resist it at a clearance sale- picked it up for £15!

Hi, am 5ft4 size six and yes absolutely do buy children's sizes based on cost.

I have bought from Boden and Noa Noa, Gap and also Dimensione Danse.

Also Petit Bateau do a range up to 12/14 years of age which is perfect for me.

Shoe size is 38 though!

Great thread.

Welcome martha, you're pretty tall by our standards but we'll let you in wink.

Just checked out NoaNoa - lovely stuff.

I'm size 37 shoe, size 38 is still available in kids shoes.

Just remembered my fave place last year - Zara. I got a lovely winter coat and a few knitted dresses/tunics, haven't checked them out yet this winter.

Thank you! I always feel I don't look even 5ft 4 though and used to live in heels until it just became ridiculous with small baby.

Yes I do recall buying a pair of girl's shoes in zara now that you mention it -don't consciously check them out though - unlike clothes where I usually have a look.

Am in Dublin so not the same selection as you guys but come on lots in the last 5 or 6 years.

I do remember Victoria Beckham getting some flack though because she shopped at Gap Kids or had 24 inch waist or some such thing - but that's a whole other issue I think.!
