Doing Wrong By My Daughter and Proud Of It

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.

Erm, really?

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?

Priorities.

Methinks people have them in the wrong place.

    Is that the jumper? Because it’s not even that cute.

    To be fair, it does not logically follow that if one action is to do right, that any other action is to do wrong.

    That is why I heart the thrift stores. I get some really nice stuff and I pay a lot less for it. It is also nice to know that I am not the only dress obsessed mom. After three boys I am going nuts with clothing for my little girl.
