We live in a smallish town. We have a Target Country, a Big W, 2 sports stores, a Just Jeans and a surf wear shop. (There are a few others, but for the point of my tale, I shall just point out the main ones where I tend to shop)
So anyways, back to my little fashion diva!
She wanted purple sneakers. Of course. Because what 4 year old, fashion forward missy wouldn't require purple sneakers! They couldn't be pink with purple details. They couldn't be white with purple soles. They had to be purple. And, of course, I had left buying them until the day before kindy started back so she needed a pair right now! So there was no time to get a pair sent from another store, and no time to travel to the next major town on the off chance they had purple sneakers.
