I belong to more “flash sale” sites than is probably healthy, and they have more clothes by far for my toddler girl than my inching-toward-middle-school son. I look at LOTS of dresses.
Often I will click on a particular brand just to see what they are offering, even if I know I can’t afford it. Actually, BECAUSE I can’t afford it, I want to see what I’m missing out on by being poor.
So recently, I clicked on a prestigious French brand that is branching out into children’s wear, and read this opening line:
Do right by your little girl and clothe her in Chloé from a young age.
Because I choose not to spend $180 on a denim jumper she would probably wear twice, I’m doing my daughter wrong?
Anything to make people feel morally superior for spending an inordinate amount of money on kid’s clothing, amirite?
Methinks people have them in the wrong place.
