Thanks for all the comments yesterday! Best dressed kids at the playground, NOT! They should be, but they are not. Occassionally they start out that way, but very rarely do they stay that way. A couple of months ago I posted a picture of Georgia on flickr in a very ugly ensemble –> old hand-me-down sweats, an old tee shirt and a Barbie dress that Georgia insists is a hat and rubber boots.
She wears this
Barbie dress hat a lot, even out in public. You have to pick your battles!
Georgia isn’t the only kid around here that is a ‘fashion victim’, her older brother suffers from the same affliction.
Urchin, comes to mind when I look at this photo! He too is wearing a hand-me-down shirt, cut-offs (only kind of clothing Mommyknows can make) and he came home from his playdate today with just one sock on!? I swear he was wearing two when he left house this morning. Now that I am seeing these
ragged pants shorts in all their glory, I am a little ashamed that I actually let him out of the house this way (he was clean this morning). I think it’s in my genes (no pun intended) to create cut-offs. I spent many a summer wearing cut-offs, only the legs on mine were never cut the same length (I hated that)!
Lizzy did not look like an orphan today. She was wearing a lovely outfit from Deux par Deux, unfortunately 3/4’s of the way to school she mentions that she can’t keep her pants done up! Apparently she grew since I purchased them for her and the snap (and zipper) won’t stay closed. I
yelled said, “Oh well, I guess you should have mentioned that BEFORE we left the house”! When I picked her up from school she was walking around with her pants gaping open and didn’t seem the least bit concerned. I’m not going to show you a picture of this (she still has them on), all the pictures look a little sordid.
And then there’s Hayley, but I am not even going to go there because she’s 18 in 3 weeks, and surely I can’t be held responsible for her clothing can I?
This weekend I am giving away TWO $25 Gift Cards to www.thebabymarketplace.com. I will randomly draw TWO winners on Day 10 (Sunday night) about 9 pm’ish.
To be eligible to win you need only leave a comment AND if you are raising a ‘fashion victim’ or two or three of your own, post a picture on your blog/flickr (I will feel better) and leave me a link. If you don’t have a blog/flickr email me the pictures: kim @ mommyknows dot com, I will post / link to my favorites next week :)
