And... it is also just fun! I have learned a lot of plain old fun stuff also! Like where to get the best hair bows... where I want to go on my first vacation when I get back to the US.... and all about Matilda Jane ~ the unpredictable clothing company. I am so "gone" over these amazing children's clothes. I can't get them overseas... so when I return to the US, I am going to host a trunk show and buy everything myself. I'm not even going to invite anyone else... : () )
I have bid on dozens of Matilda Jane things on ebay... I am determined to get a knot dress; however, while I sleep ~ my maximum bid is always surpassed at the last second ~ and by tons of $$$$! It is amazing that these clothes sell for more on ebay than they do brand new!
I was successful in the purchase of one beautiful peasant blouse... it is a size 6 so I figured Abby would wear it first. One look from Abby when I opened the box and I knew she did not share my fascination with the Matilda Jane label... Lilli on the other hand ~ well, her eyes got big and she touched the shirt ever so softly and said "Oh Mommy, it is beautiful". It is now hers! She wore it today and looked way cute!
She asked me to take pictures and send them to Sandy, an Australian lady who meant a lot to Lilli in China. These are the 4 that I sent:
Now don't you all go and bid against me on size 4 and size 6 knot dresses!!! : )
