The Day My Baby Almost Strangled Me

I am obsessed with this necklace that I found at my local Saks Off 5th for like $20. Unfortunately so is Eleanor and she has the grabbiest of grabby hands these days. And that’s the story of how, literally minutes after these photos were taken, my sweet and lovely child nearly strangled me to death. Let’s call it a learning moment.

Also, funny story, when I was wondering around Saks Off 5th, I several times approached a rack of something or other and starting looking at very items, intrigued. And like 4 times, after that initial inspection, I went to look at the tag to see the size and price and saw a label that read “Ivanka Trump.” My response, unplanned and knee jerk and uncensored, was to forcibly eject the garment from my hand and say audibly “ugh,” “gross, no,” and “fuck no.” It was visceral.

I have to say I've been impressed by how much jewelry you've managed to continue to wear with Eleanor around. I suppose it couldn't last forever ;) As for Saks of Fifth and Ivanka Trump, I swear, that store exists just to sell off all the crap from her line that no one in the world wants to buy - our Saks of Fifth in Winnipeg stocks almost nothing else and that is precisely the reason I avoid shopping there.

Oh no! Haha, I am glad you are okay- it seems you guys are entering the stage where Nothing Is Safe, lol. ;)

And RIGHT?! Ivanka, gtf outta here. Shuttering her line was LONG OVERDUE.

It is such a pretty necklace! :) I am glad the crisis was averted, haha!

I'm definitely at the stage where I don't wear all the pretty pieces I'd like to - the boys are just so grabby, necklaces are usually not a good idea!

Hope that you have been having a great week and have a nice weekend ahead of you! :)

Haha, oh no! I guess you will have to rethink your accessorizing for a bit. Though I appreciate seeing moms who do not alter their style to accommodate motherhood. I always admire my sister-in-law for wearing white jeans, even when dirty little hands are all over them.

Yeah hell no to Ivanka Trump, I had a similar knee jerk reaction when I was perusing the second hand store in NYC. There was a very cute dress there but it was from the Kylie and Kendall collection and I was like noooooooope.
I am so glad to hear that you escaped with your life from her chubby little infant hands!

It seems I am not the only one who does not want to see the Trump name.. I saw hand bags and just skipped them.
Oh and how scary that she pulled on it... well can I say she has good taste ?
