what could be better than red soles? for a kid?
I’ve been looking high and low for something to give Maya for her birthday next month. This is annoying because I really just want to roam around the house and put unopened toys into a used Hello Kitty gift bag. But alas, the fallout from my confession about re-gifting is still reverberating, so I thought I’d make more of an effort this time.
So there I was, wracking my brain as I tried to figure out what to give a child who has everything… when I saw it – the special edition “Dolly Forever Barbie” by Christian Louboutin.
The.most.perfect.gift.ever. Right? I mean, what mother doesn’t want to gift her daughter with a doll that:
a. Wears bright pink thigh high boots with Louboutin’s red soles?
b. Costs $150?
c. Comes with shoe bags and hot pink sunglasses?
Because I want Maya to know that there is nothing unusual about sporting $1,500 pink, thigh-high boots. I also believe it is imperative that my daughter master how to wear a tiny mini skirt and a gold chain around her waist. And if a $150 doll can do all that? Then it’s definitely a must-have.
Kudos to you and your marketing team Mattel! You’ve presented us mothers with yet another inspiring and useful toy. I simply don’t know how you to do it.
PS – To those who plan to send me emails that I should “lighten up” please note this post is supposed to be funny.
