I just posted a little while ago, so don't miss the cookie post below if you haven't seen it yet. But pretty, pretty Mir alerted me to a good deal over at The Children's Place, and we all like our kids to dress the same, right? ...Right? Anyway, there's a clearance sale AND a $10-off-$30 coupon AND a free shipping deal, so I got some stuff for Elizabeth for next summer. I tried to link to each thing I bought, but it didn't work--but just go to the "outlet" section, and all the stuff I got was under "baby girls."
I bought the cute false-advertising "Never Crabby" shirt that Shelly's Peanut modeled the other day, and in fact I bought it in two sizes so Elizabeth can tell lies this summer and next summer. I bought the yoga skort in the same blue color (called "oxygen"), and then bought the white t-shirt with the blue "CUTIE" on it, and a dolphin shirt I think will go with the skort too, and the blue socks, and the blue patterned maryjane sneakers. Plus of course the hoodie in both colors it comes in, because I love both, and because I love the hoodies I got for Elizabeth in the spring clearance, and because Shannon's Darsie has it (top photo) and I am so influenced by what other people's kids look cute in.
Why did I buy nothing at all for the four boys? Er. I have no good explanation, other than that it is fun to buy girl clothes.
If you follow Mir's link for free shipping, allow a little time for the coupon to arrive: I think mine came about an hour later. Do the dumb little game first (it wants personal information like your name and address, but you have to give them that anyway when you place an order), then shop, then see if the coupon came yet. And, as Mir says, you can use that shipping coupon along with the $10-off-$30 coupon, so as long as you order $30 worth of stuff, you get it for $20 and you get it shipped free. Awesome.
If you buy anything, tell me what you bought! I might have to place another order.
