I buy a lot of Elizabeth's clothes at The Children's Place. It fits Elizabeth well; most of it is made for play (the skirts are stretchy, and have attached shorts); and they use the same colors throughout so if you buy a dark pink shirt and a dark pink patterned skirt and dark pink socks, the dark pinks will all match---and it will be the same dark pink as in the shirt with a multicolored pink/blue/yellow/green flower on it. Mix-and-match = teh awesome.
ANYWAY. I like to wait until they have their "take an additional 30% off sale prices" end-of-season sales, and then I like to have a coupon, too. Which is why I keep my eye on pretty, pretty Mir, who has the scoop on coupons and free shipping deals: right now you get another 15% off if you use Mir's code.
Sale-waiting is always a gamble, and right now I'm wondering Why oh why didn't I buy this tiered skirt when I had the chance? I was too cheap to spend $9 (I wanted to wait for the additional 15%-off coupon), and now I bitterly, bitterly regret it! Now they only have it in 18 months and smaller. HEART SADNESS.
Well, into each life a little rain must fall.
Instead I bought these cute ruffle flare jeans, two pairs each of "pink" (they're blue denim, but with a pinkish tint) and grey, $4.75 a pair baby!
And these cute hair bows in green and in pink for $.88 per pair! Not that Elizabeth will let me put them in her hair! But at least I can BUY them!
And some $3-ish shirts such as these from the baby girls section, for her to wear this year:
And a bunch of $3.50ish shirts such as these from the big girls section, for her to wear next year (she's tall, so she's currently in the biggest shirt size in the baby girl sizes):
And finally---OMG could you DIE?---I bought her this smocked daisy dress for $7.73:
So I'm happy, and of course I'm already second-guessing: Should I have gotten the daisy dress in yellow instead? or in black? or in pink AND in yellow? Or should I have bought the gingham dress instead? Should I have bought more of those jeans in larger sizes? Should I have bought the yoga pants, even though she does not do yoga per se?
Well, nothing says there can't be a little rematch later on. If you buy anything, tell me what you get: I'm highly susceptible to your influence, and I think it's fun to match.
Gift ideas for an 8-year-old, part 2 of 2 - Last week I talked about the gifts we were getting/considering for Edward, who is turning 8 next month. This week it’s Elizabeth’s turn: not “girl gifts,” ...
