Expensive Taste


I noticed a commercial for LelliKelly shoes that would run during Dora. Every time it comes on now Avery says, "Ohhhhhh Shoooooes!!!" I thought it was so cute, since this is the first thing she's ever noticed that she wanted. Although, I thought the shoes were pretty hideous, I figured it would be worth it if she loved them as much as she did when she saw them on TV. I googled them to order a pair, thinking they would be around $30. Ummmm...no. $73 a pair! Wowzers! So, I think we're going to hold off on these LelliKelly's, at least until Christmas! And I sure hope this isn't a sign of things to come. If so, one thing is for sure, Avery has expensive taste!

Yep! Although I really like the shoes, I couldn't see paying more for Alise's shoes than I pay for my own!! Luckily for me, the only shoes she's seen and wanted are the Twinkle Toes! Thank you, Jesus!!

DO NOT BUY HER $73 shoes even at Christmas! There will be plenty of time for that in her teens!

I've wanted to get Sara Madalin a pair of those. I think they are darling. But, as rough as she is on shoes and as quickly as she outgrows them, I'm spending that much on a pair. I do like Avery's taste though.

Retailers are great at timing, I can't believe (yes I can) but really kids' shoes. They go through shoes so quickly. But that probably is a sign of expensive taste yet to come!

Girl! $80 on a pair of shoes? LOL Maybe you can find them cheaper on Ebay?
