I am so easily seduced by the wonderful little shoes that See Kai Run makes. They are adorable. And so high quality. And the look of (most of) their shoes is timeless. And yesterday when I got an e-mail from See Kai Run telling me that some of their shoes are on clearance for up to 50% off, I almost bought this pair for Olivia. After all, $16 for super mega ultra high quality baby shoes that will last forever (both in look and wear and tear) isn't such a bad deal. But then when they slapped on $6.50 for shipping the spell wore off. I logged out. Closed the page. Sayonara ultra cool and too-rich-for-my-blood baby shoes.
Then today while I was out I decided to stop by Ross, Old Navy, and TJ Max to see what I could find in the way of baby footwear. Ross had some pretty cute shoes, but they were all WAY too big for Olivia's teeny tiny size 1-2 feet. Old Navy had some pretty awesome clearance racks with extra large tank tops and other fun things on sale for only $.97. I almost bought some things to refashion, but talked myself out of it when I remembered the fact that we're moving in a year and we really can't acquire anything else that "might come in handy someday." But, alas, Old Navy totally let me down in the baby shoe department. And then, just as I had basically given up--woot woot!-- TJ Max totally came through for me. There, in the very short, almost-hidden isle with lots and lots of terribly ugly baby shoes, I found these ones labeled as 6-9 months size.
