I rarely let L choose clothes. If I did it would be all JCB / Fireman Sam / Toy Story / Spiderman...I tell him they don't have his size He's allowed to choose his pants, swimmers and the odd top like thishttp://www.hm.com/gb/product/09021?article=09021-E
Am I mean?

I have let C choose what he wears since he was 3.
He'd always go for things with skulls on.

Mine have no say in what is bought, but often choose from their wardrobes. Then I change them into things that coordinate ;) H let's them choose and run around with mixed up clothes, drives me mad!
I choose all of my 2 and a half year old's and 20 month old's. Last time I took F (5) shopping she chose a lot of her stuff, she vetoed quite a lot of stuff which I loved but there was no point me buying it if she didn't like it and refused to wear it. On a day to day basis she is happy for me to pick out what she's wearing but she annoyed me last week as it was the school disco and she insisted on wearing the same dress she's been wearing to parties/evenings out recently and she has plenty of beautiful clothes I don't want her wearing the same thing every time grrrr.

Occasionally if he's out shopping with me he can choose what I buy, but mostly he doesn't.
Regarding what he wears each day, he does sometimes choose which top or trousers but mostly it's whatever we put on him!

My 2 year old dresses herself in the morning so I have very little say in what she picks for the day. But her only choices are obviously only the things that are in her bedroom so I do have ultimate say, since I buy most of it. it's just the ridiculous combinations of patterns that I cringe at!
My 4 year old boy is very lazy and I have to get his clothes out and most days also help him get dressed but he does voice opinions sometimes.
The 7 year old sorts himself out every day, obviously. Any clothes I buy him that he doesn't like just end up staying in the drawer until he's grown out of them! He ends up wearing his favourite tops and trousers every weekend.
When shopping for clothes, I often buy a lot of their things without them there but if they are there, I will let them have some say, as long as it goes along with what I want of course!!

I choose T's clothes, he's fine with that, unless he is adamant he really don't want to wear something, he will say. Although he did want to wear his toy story cap to a party the other day!

No. I know I am mean. But with A my days are numbered and I live most of my fashion dreams through her. (Age appropriate natch)

I choose N's clothes, occasionally he will pick something or I give him a choice between two things. He took a serious dislike to some jeans I bought a while ago so they've never been worn, there was no logical reason either as they were similar to another pair he wore!

Yup, I do. Little madam will only wear dresses and even then only specific ones, so I let her choose after a few occasions where shed pull tags off things then tell me she didn't like them so I couldn't return then. If she doesny like something shell refuse to put it on and even if I can wrestle her into it shell go and get changed at first opportunity. Like pingus daughter, she sometimes comes out in weird combinations and I'll try to talk her into changing to something that matches.
This is the girl who has requested pink straighteners for her 3rd birthday though....as if.

Yes I do now. E has completely gone against everything I've ever chosen for her though and chooses tutus, pink, fluffy, girly stuff! You should see the hair accessories she has now too! I'm happy to let her pick out her own clothes, she loves shopping and I love that I have a little shopping buddy
Oh and this is what she chose for her birthday outfit (we drew the line here!!)
29/05/2013 at 12:04
Belle- if it makes you feel better, I limit Disney clothing to night wear only
29/05/2013 at 12:07
No E doesn't get a choice and she won't when she's older either!
If I don't like it then no.
Ws - that's so cute for a party! I would let her have it
29/05/2013 at 12:10
WS, that outfit is fab.
Hell, even i'd wear it... ha
29/05/2013 at 12:15
Dolly- it's too pink, it hurts my eyes
AK- would love to see you in it

Rose is 5 now and told me that I only get clothes for her that I like! I love buying her clothes but just lately she seems to have developed her own' style'! So, we looked at the next directory and she picked a few bits out and I went to Lakeside and bought her some bits she'd chosen. It's hard though, that's the only reason I wanted a girl, to dress them up! I recently bought her a new party dress which she hates but I think is lovely!
29/05/2013 at 12:20
That dress is the nuts WS! Where is it from? Miss Molly can have one if you won't let E.
29/05/2013 at 12:24
I have a tutu like that actually, I wear it as a petticoat under my Hello Kitty skirt...
I dress myself like a child, if I had a girl, she wouldn't stand a chance. She WOULD like Pink, frills and Hello Kitty.
29/05/2013 at 12:43
God help us if I ever had a girl.. That dress would be her daily attire!
29/05/2013 at 12:56
AK- she is desperate for a skirt like this! The cheapest I have found here is £35 which seems excessive for a 2 year old! I promised to look when we visit home next week!
Ladies, stop swaying me towards letting her wear this for her party! It's a bloody soft play do
