The thing about the internet is that you get a window into other people's lives. It's just sometimes these lives are very strange. I was looking at baby clothes on trade-me with a friend and found an auction for Christian Dior Baby mittens scarf and beanie. I'm still disturbed that there are people who buy Christian Dior for their baby. Apparently very expensive baby clothes look like this:Weird - but not worth writing a post about. The reason I wrote about it was the explanation the woman selling it gave:
My goodness. I can't believe I'm selling this. Actually, I'm kind of hoping it won't meet reserve and won't sell, then I will definitely keep it! My husband thinks his son will grow up 'less of a man' if I dress him in Christian Dior - he'd prefer him in a black singlet, swandri, stubbies & gumboots I think - oh dear :(After reading that I ended up wanting the woman not to be able to get her money back, and for the baby to get to wear the mittens that'll make him less of a man.
I agreed to list this, and if I can get back enough of what I paid for it, then I'd sell it. Otherwise my wee baby will be wearing it for sure!! The price of 24 pounds (approx $75NZD) is still on the label...and this is just for the mittens!
