Now that I'm trying to get together dd's fall/winter wardrobe, I'm wondering what other moms here do. Dd is 5.5 but tall, so she's about to go into size 7 clothes. I'm looking for clothes that are cotton/knit and easy to put on and off. In the past I've bought Gymboree, Carters, Osh Kosh, but I've recently felt that Gymboree is getting more prep-kid looking, and Carter's stuff and Osh Kosh aren't as cute as I'd like. We don't do any character clothing, and I like it to be well-made. I've bought some things at Target but the quality hasn't been that great, which is frustrating. I'm getting to be at a loss. What do you do?
Also, what kind of play shoes do you buy for your kids--especially kids who run around and climb and stuff. I need shoes that will hold up well. I've bought Preschoolians, See Kai Runs, and Pedipeds in the past but dd's foot is getting on the upper range of these. She wears US size 12/EU 28. She's also really rough on shoes so they have to be strong shoes. I keep wondering if I should try something cheaper like Target shoes but do they hold up?
