Outfit Post: One Toddler. Four Looks. A Killer Buzz.

Sporty or Spiffy, a Toddler Needs Options

Does your daughter wear anything new? The short answer is no. A long answer is, well, longer. Sure she has new clothes. But not many. One of the reasons I love secondhand shopping is the thrill of the hunt and the rush that comes with finding a bargain. It's like hitting a jackpot on a slot machine in Vegas. A great buzz. 

Enjoy this contact high. It's secondhand, of course.
