Fashion websites for picky 13 year old DD?

Pleeeeease help as I don't know if I can take any more tears. She's had her whole wardrobe out and in various piles on the kitchen table trying to convince me that she has nothing to wear.

I do feel for her as she's been invited to her friend's cousin's 18th birthday party at the weekend, where his 'indie rock' band will be playing...i think she's anticipating feeling silly and very young infront of a hip older crowd. Poor love. She just needs something cool, different, deliverable by Friday, not too expensive etc to wear. (Don't we all?)

Anyone know of any not-too-high-street type websites via which she might be able to assert a little individuality...?

Can't you just take her to Primark?

Can you get to a H&M? Perfect fasion for the indie rock scene.

Joe Browns?

Fat Face goes up to age 13 in the girls' stuff (not sure how much there is left in her size on there though).

Thanks, but I'm afraid shopping trip is out as we have no time. DH is abroad and have younger DDs swimming Saturday morning. DD1 leaves for party further up north at lunchtime Saturday.
Nearest Primark or H&M is Leeds or Harrogat(we live in a village)and I just don't think we have time - maybe Friday evening but I'd be dragging 9 and 4yo DDs around too.

I think she's after something different from her friends which, IIRC, is a huge problem at that age.

Frogs - she's tried Joe Browns but couldn't see anything she liked - maybe she's too hormonal and not in a receptive frame of mind anyway.

Anyone know any site similar to Joe Browns??? [hopeful emoticon}

Pumpkin Patch's urban angel range is the right size, but don't think they do particularly quick delivery - might be a store near you?

JackieNo Tue 08-Jul-08 22:27:36

La Redoute?

This site seems to do teenage sizes of stuff, but looks quite expensive. And I have no idea what they're like (though they do look to do quick delivery).

JackieNo Tue 08-Jul-08 22:38:43

Vertbaudet has a teen range too.

Thanks JackieNo - tops (bit pricey, but it's her birthday soon) ordered from Parklife and La Redoute denim mini skirt (DH abroad, thankfully).

Thanks all!
