It is usually a frustruating task.
Up to the age of 2 it was mostly okay. But when they needed bigger clothes I could not find anymore things I liked or things I found appropriate.
My girls are still girls. They are not teenagers! They also play a lot outside.
To hell with those frilly, glittery, pink-with lace-clothes! Give me something with happy colours! Give me some functonal clothes! My oldest daughter likes blue- go and find something blue for a girl!
Same with shoes. One day I asked in the shoe shop if they don't have anything beside those glittery white and silver shoes. I told her that I need something that will survive a trip to the fields... many trip to the fields and forest and waddi... The sales lady looked at me as if I would be a Martian...
Looks like that almost the same applies for boys too. Can I get something that is not grey and blue and dark green?
Hey- I want orange and yellow and red and happy-green!
Oh yes- and what happened to the uni-sex clothes of my childhood?
Don't get me wrong- I love the occasional pink and grey clothes too...
I do find stuff- on the internet. Unfortunately way out of our budget. I would pay up to 3 or 4 times more... not even including the shipment.
So- if someone has a great tip for cheaper happy clothes on the net or in Israel- PLEASE tell me!
Have a great day!
