Anyone else gone shopping crazy?

Hi ladies,

Has anyone else become an unstoppable shopaholic or is it just me?

I have not stopped buying clothes for this little one since I found out she's a girl. It's an addiction and one I have to stop before my house bursts at the seams!

I always coveted girls' clothes when I was pregnant with my son and even as he has grown up, whenever I buy him clothes I drift through the girls aisle feeling sad I couldn't buy any of the gorgeous little outfits with the beautiful prints and bows and emroidery. I'm not really a clothes person for myself - I like what I like, but don't go overboard - and I'm not really girly in the slightest with my own wardrobe and things I like (though I do have a shabby chic obsession), so I don't know why I love baby girls clothes so much! My little one has a whole wardrobe waiting for her and I'm really worried I will always be like this!! I don't want to be it's expensive and she'll grow so quickly that even though most of the stuff I have bought are in 3-6 and 6-9 months, even those sizes she'll grow out of really quickly.

Anyone else battling the shopaholic within?

I'm always buying clothes for my daughter, it's an obsession of mine. If I had more money id but more clothes lol. So far I've bought nothing as in clothes for this one but still waiting to find out gender. I'm sure I will once I know what we're having. Although I have loads of baby clothes I kept so will need to sort through those first. I love baby clothes though. I try to buy in sales when I can.

Not me. I'm too overwhelmed at the girl choices, I just wonder around with a few items and then realize I'm not into any of the prints.

I've got waaaay too much!! I was exactly the same with my little boy, although this time I've mostly gone for stuff that's 6-9 months as hopefully it will fit this time next year, and I know anything we get bought is likely to be 0-3 or 3-6. I'll get more when she's here in the right sizes if we don't get bought much.

I took photo's of everything I'd got the other day before I put them away, as I'd started to forget and know I'll end up buying something twice. This is what I have so far....crazy!!

I'm a shopaholic waiting to burst, lol. As soon as I find out if this baby is a boy or girl, I will be going crazy at the mall, swap meets, garage sales and any other place I can find cute baby things!

We have a lot of clothes. I prefer baby girl clothes to baby boy clothes but I far prefer toddler boys clothes to toddler girls. Why are there no coloured jeans and chinos in the girls section too?! Bahh. I'll be buying from the boys when she's old enough!
