Know When to Hold 'Em

And know when to return 'em, so that they get folded by someone else. :(

If it's for the children and/or costs more than $20, our purchases need to be approved by each other. So what I do is buy what I think is charming at a good price, hold on to the receipt, and run it by the man when either one of us gets home. This is our system. It works for us. I believe in it.

Except when it causes heartbreak like this:

Boden girl skirt

Goodbye awesome puppy skirt, you didn't make the cut. You were deemed pathetically puppyful, and not worth $19. Waaaaaaaaahhhhh.

The two shirts shown above, they are keepers. (But really, a sparrow wearing a crown is less offensive than a pack of cuddly pooches? C'mon! That bird could be a gang banger.)

The shoe decision is also hard. My girl has thick wide feet and our options are limited. You'll see a theme there above, this is the shoe type with the easiest toe entry. The purple & orange Tom's and the glitter knock-offs are the same size. The knock-offs (from Meijer) are pretty flimsy, have very little cushioning, but are almost half the price as the others (though all things shown above were on clearance). We're trying to decide between those two first, because if it looks like the Tom's are not worth it, then that means the other pair in red & white, which are in a larger size for down the road, will be returned, too.

Ugh, having a girl, if you don't watch out your closets will be filled to the brim with the cutest stuff known to mankind. . . Wait, is that so bad?
