Browsing Not Buying

I stop by the nearest Wal-Mart every once in a while to pick up a few things that I can't get nearly as cheap elsewhere but for the most part I stay away. On many of those forays, I wander over to the girls clothes aisle to check out the offerings. I have to admit I find a lot of the Ashley and Mary-Kate line very cute and perfect for J's petite frame.

However, like this woman who could not compromise her dignify to buy a perfect pair of shoes (even priced right) because they had Jessica Simpson on the insole, I cringe at the thought of someone seeing Ashley and Mary-Kate on the label of something J is wearing. I will agree it takes great strength of character and an almost virulent hatred for trashy celebrity endorsement to walk away from a delightful pair of floral printed skorts priced at $4.00 knowing fully well that your little one will look adorable in them.

It must be hard for Wal-Mart to get into a customer's head and figure why their foray into the fashion world has not been successful.

I guess good deals are limited to the kids section. I found the prices of clothes for women high. Well, high for Walmart. My automatic reaction was "This is not Target. Why pay higher prices?"
