SK recently (finally!) dropped her morning nap, so we’ve been exploring new and exciting ways to spend our mornings together. Today, I decided to check out Savers (that I recently discovered was one town over) and then head to my favorite kid’s consignment store which is aptly named Fancy Pants.
We’ll start there. Fancy Pants is in Chestnut Hill. I don’t think you need to be a local to pick up on the fact that Chestnut Hill is a prissy place indeed! And Fancy Pants is that magical establishment where all the rich Mommies (or more likely, the nannies or housekeepers) bring all of their lightly used or never used(!) clothes, shoes, toys and gear. You can imagine the pretties that can be found there!
The smocking, the corduroy, the sweet embroidery, I can’t even handle it! And the tags are still on! This dress wasn’t even worn! I looked up the brand when I got home and found that these dresses retail for $75-$100! I got it brand new for $15!
The shoes I got at Savers. They soles are a bit… orthopedic for my taste. But heck! They’ll do the trick.
Those little crotched flowers are hair clips!
Sigh… it’s a weakness of mine, this endless pursuit of pretty clothes for me and my kiddo. I’m really trying to cut back on it for myself, but I just don’t like a lot of the clothes (mostly cheaper options) out there for little girls. They’re downright garish with the neon colors and stupid writing on the chest. I like classic looks like these, and I’m glad I was able to find some gems that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
She ran from mirror to mirror at Savers. And then I encouraged her narcissism. Doh!
This is my real happy! I found this hand embroidered Sacred Heart at Savers for $3! The fabric is a little stained, and I initially thought I’d just get a new frame with a matte, but this frame is really old and has a yellowed old stamp from “RH White Company Artistic Picture Framing”. And it has that brown paper seal on the whole back. Anyway, I wonder whether I should leave the frame alone. What do you think?
Remember when I told you of my blue blazer search? I think I found a winner!
for her crayons.
