My Thoughts on Sequins

Dear Disney - makers of princess attire galore,
I totally get that little girls like sparkly things.  Believe me, I know.  However, is it really necessary to cover the entire bottom two-thirds of the Ariel dress in tiny blue metallic SEQUINS?  This is clothing designed for young children; is SEQUINS really the best option for creating the sparkle they crave?  I can somewhat understand SEQUINS on a prom dress or for a special occasion, but these costumes are being worn everyday ... all day.  Perhaps it's time to hire MOMS to design your next line of princess dresses.  Just a thought.

Sick of Sequins

Dear Aunt Tricia,
Thank you for bestowing upon your niece her newest, most priced possession.  She wakes up asking to put on her Ariel dress.  If allowed, she would wear it everywhere ... every waking hour ... and perhaps even to bed.  Natalie simply loves her Ariel dress!  It is such a sweet gesture for her cousins to pass down their outgrown princess collection. I have just one tiny little complaint.  The blue metallic SEQUINS - the ones that make this dress look so mermaid-esque - are all over my house!  I cannot walk into a room without spotting a sparkle of blue ... there, there, and there.  I think perhaps it is only fair that your girls accept a gift from me ... I'll be looking for something noisy and messy that I know you'll the girls will enjoy :)

Revenge is Sweet

Dear Tiny Blue Sequins,
Please stay ON the Ariel dress and OFF my carpet.  If you cannot comply, I am making a deal with the evil Sea Witch.  That's all I'm saying.


Mermaid ("fish") face and clear evidence of my angst!

Aww I love her fish face! I hate sequins too.

Seriously LMAO!!!! However, my lust for pink baby dust right now makes me just a teeny-tiny bit jealous as I look out over our Thomas the Tank Engine disaster zone complete with bulldozers and "mo-copters". ;-)

Oh, but it's so cute! Nevertheless, kind of glad I have a boy right now. No sequins in this house :)

Lovely dress, but yes, I can see there are a few sequins missing...My daughter loved her red and black Christmas dress...and has worn it as often as possible since...even in the 90 degree summer....She makes ME sweat!

Jessica said...

I agree 100%. Oh, and I hear that Moon Sand is horribly messy, I mean fun.

It'll be even worse when CJV starts crawling and tries to eat those dratted blue sequins...

Quite the fiesty post - hilarious writing!!!! Note to self: Stay away from sequins for T. Thanks for the tip!

If I saw that face on Sam, I would immediately assume said sequins were in her mouth.
