To think that if you pay £325 for children's shoes then you can't complain if they get scuffed?

Gold medal winning sadface here. The mother does seem to have made a career out of this sort of publicity but seriously, kids are tough on their clothes and shoes. If you're not happy with that then don't spend over £300 on a pair!!

She made a pubic hair dress shock

QueenoftheAndals Fri 06-Jan-17 17:28:13

I know. Quite the publicity seeker isn't she?

Poor little girl - I'm guessing she won't be invited to any more 'play dates' from now on.

DailyFail1 Fri 06-Jan-17 17:29:59

I think she was angry because the other girl had drawn on them. Still unreasonable to spend £300 on shoes when you clearly can't afford to replace them, but I'd be pissed off in this situation too.

The little girl has 60+ pairs of shoes, though!

It's all invented for publicity.

Idiot woman.

I never understand the issue with scuffed shoes. You polish them. Simple.

liz70 Fri 06-Jan-17 17:34:15

Daft cow. I feel sorry for that poor child.

Aeroflotgirl Fri 06-Jan-17 17:34:45

This woman is totally stupid. Well done for plastering you and your dd face on social and national media for all to see! I don't think she will get many offers of parties and playdates now, or many friends, poor thing. If she is going on a playdate, why on earth is she dressed in her 'work' clothes! She sees this poor little girl as a fashion accessory, not a child. What will she do when her girl grows up and starts dirtying her clothes and ruining her clothes by herself, sue her! Those shoes are not very good, if they get scuffed like that after one playdate, dds Kickers would never have such a thing!

Instead of blaming the other poor mother who tried to do you a favour by looking after your dd for a couple of hours, look to yourself!

Sounds like the poor girl got the chance to play normally and this was the result. Unfortunate but if you're daft enough to dress your child like this (whilst looking down on lesser mortals purchasing from Primark) I'm afraid it's your own damned fault.

The 3 yo was on a "playdate" without her mother hmm. Don't you normally go with them at that age?

Aeroflotgirl Fri 06-Jan-17 17:36:16

What is she going to do, when the girl starts school, and shoes get muddy at playtime, and there could be a chance of paint on her clothes, sue the school, don't think that would happen!

TheWitTank Fri 06-Jan-17 17:37:26

Clearly someone needs the publicity for her genital inspired dresses (thats not avant-garde, its grim). Buying expensive shoes for a toddler is idiotic. She is a child, not an accessory.

EvansOvalPies Fri 06-Jan-17 17:37:38

Who, in their right mind, pays £300+ for a pair of child's shoes (when they'll have outgrown them in months anyway) and then sends them off to play, and then complains when they come home with play marks on them? Just who? That poor little girl is going to grow up a very mixed up and discombobulated person, thinking she is not allowed to play and have fun for fear of marks on her clothing and the tumult that will follow, from her weird Mum.

Ridiculous to spend that if u can't afford to replace them.
Why doesn't she have show clothes and seperate playdate/nursery stuff. I did for my girls and their entire wardrobes didn't cost £300!

FormerlyFrikadela01 Fri 06-Jan-17 17:38:31

I know nothing about modelling so this might be a stupid question but why would should need the shoes for her modelling "jobs"? Don't they provide the clothes?

brasty Fri 06-Jan-17 17:40:21

This is a career move. She is looking for publicity, and has probably told the other woman that.

missbishi Fri 06-Jan-17 17:41:04

I think she was angry because the other girl had drawn on them

No mention of the other girl drawing on the boot in the article - just says "her new Italian leather shoes are all scuffed and have a Sharpie Mark on them".

MrsHouseBrownie Fri 06-Jan-17 17:41:33

Poor child is going to have the most boring childhood if she has to remain as an immaculate, pristine 'model' doll for the whole of it!

MoreProseccoNow Fri 06-Jan-17 17:42:10

I love the bit where she says that her shoes don't get worn outside - WTF?!

Clearly a publicity stunt & self-promotion tactic.

TheTantrumCometh Fri 06-Jan-17 17:42:31

I could probably make a pubic hair duvet with the amount I've got <misses point>

TheFairyCaravan Fri 06-Jan-17 17:44:51

She's being ridiculous. I bet the poor kid has never been mucky.

Silly woman needs to unclench

Maudlinmaud Fri 06-Jan-17 17:44:55

This stinks and there is a distinct whiff off Mommy Dearest.... no wire hangers.
That poor child.

SolomanDaisy Fri 06-Jan-17 17:46:45

I love the fact she's not allowed to go outside in these shoes and she takes outside shoes with her. Shoes you only wear inside aren't shoes, they're slippers.
