My DD has a better wardrobe than me

and I am pissed off...

She got tons of lovely new clothes for her b'day from relatives and friends and now I am envious of her wardrobe.

My DD has a better wardrobe than me too, and she gets a brand new wardrobe every season as well, how unfair is that!

I buy a lot of children's clothes online, and I'm always jealous when my daughter gets basically a whole, new, colour-coordinated wardrobe sent to her in a single big brown box every season.
Just imagine if that was you - how cool would that be?!!! Sigh

Take them back and swap them for adult clothes

moondog, I'm currently receiving boxes with not very nice elasticated waist jeans and enormous pants..... no chance of me getting into any skinny little cool numbers for many many months sadly...

I read that when Alice Evans (unfamous actress) dated one of the Picasso grandsons, she was given a book of the designer clothes before they hit the rails for her to select her seasonal wardrobe from - every season.
Now that is what I call a boyfriend.

yes, it is called a "look book". every designer has one of the next season's collection, several months before it is available. you look at it and go, "oh, lovely, I'll have THAT and THAT and THAT but perhaps in amethyst and could you make it sleeveless rather than cap sleeved? Thank you so much...."

wouldn't that be wonderful? mind you, you need to be a small size 8 to really benefit...

Thread hijack: Hi PPH, how are you? Great news about the pregnancy, bar of course the elasticated waist jeans!

I bought some adult clothes in the Boden sale, didn't like them, sent them back and am now about to use up my credit on clothes for DD1. Groan. The only upside is that she needs new clothes because, at 4.5 she has finally managed to graduate out of her 2-3 wardrobe.

Hi PPH: All fine here. I've outsourced the nametaping to my mother and am now plunged into the nightmare that is a major transaction. An Autumnal lunch sounds delicious on many fronts and I'll email you in the next few days to set up a date.
