As a mother, the number one thing I have learned is to never say never. I'm sure for extremes I can still use this statement, but here's another small incident where I have to eat my words.
About a year ago, I may have said, "We don't do smocking." What I really should have said is, "We don't do expensive outfits." (because I'll cry when they are easily ruined) Smocking used to fall under that category.
It all started at a consignment sale where I found a dress for $15.00 and a romper for $10.00.
And then at another store, I found a second hand blouse for $4.00. (The first three items from the left)
I figured that if we could have smocking in our lives for such a good price then we could maybe find a way to have this style be a part of her wardrobe.
But then, I discovered shopping on ......Facebook.
The prices are great and I'm supporting small businesses (bonus!)
Our favorite brands....
warning: it's totally addicting.
