fashion friday: mom’s score!

My daughter (who is almost 10) has been begging for UGGs for about 4 years now. She has ‘fuggs’ and wears them all the time, but living in the rather wealthy area that we do, my girl who cares nothing about fashion and would happily wear the same pair of sweatpants every day for a week, is aware that her boots are not “real”.

She is always pointing them out to me in the shoe store “Look, Mom, these are the ones I want!” while a helpful salesperson offers to let her try them on and I think “Sorry, there is NO WAY I am spending that kind of money on a kid who will just outgrow them!” I keep promising her that when her feet stop growing, I will get her a pair.

But the other day, I was in one of my favorite consignment stores and I saw a pair of black UGGs behind the counter. I asked if they were for sale and they were! They had just come in and they were about to put them out. They were EXACTLY Ellie’s size, too! For only $30!!


So now, my proud little girl is rocking her Uggs every day she doesn’t have gym class! She even slept in them the first night I gave them to her.

Talk about a consignment score!  Do you consign?What is your biggest consignment find?
