Lee Lee of Walmart

May 29, 2010 | Beauty and Style, Full Time Family | 25 comments

You all know my disdain for Walmart.
Thank the Lord for the thousands of jobs they provide these days/ But it’s really a catch 22 when you consider all that stuff fabrique en chineย has surely cost us job loss in America over the years.
Walmart seems to bring out the worst in people (like pagan “high priests”) and myself… I always get so cranky if I have to run in. Typically, I refuse to go there because of the affect I let it have on my nerves, but the other day I needed landscape fabric (weed barrier) and I could not stomach one more trip to Home Depot, to their overpriced garden section.
“Everybody get dressed!” I shouted.
ย This is how LeeLee came down the stairs.
Hello Kitty glitter t-shirt, “Cow boots” on the wrong feet, goodwill skirt, brothers Lightening McQueen pajama bottoms and a NASCAR Pink Junior sock cap.
OF COURSE I LET HER WEAR IT!ย 
ย How could I not! ??????
It may be rather uncharitable of me… but for a thousand good laughs you’ve got to visit PeopleofWalmart.com.
I swear, they could take all those photos in ONE DAY at ours!

    half the time I have to run to that store I have my ratty babushka on, tattered jean skirt and flip flops- I’ll have to go over there and see if my picture is in their archives for pete’s sake!

    Leelee is adorable, and I love her choices. Ahhh Walmart… here in the middle of Podunk MO it’s about our only choice – unfortunately. Some days are ok. Other days, the crazies come out by the multitude ๐Ÿ˜‰ -Tammy

    Oh, my goodness!
    Your little LeeLee has got the fashionista genes for sure. It’s wonderfully pink, all of it!
    I wouldn’t mind the style varieties……it’s colour that matters to her.
    Precious.

    So funny. Sad to say she is very appropriately dressed. Glad you let her wear it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love People of Walmart. I’ve had more *gasps* and squeals of horrified delight over that site than any other!
    You should try WalMart in the Missouri suburbs of St. Louis. A treat, I tell you.

    I am here with Jamie and Sunday we went to Wally world (as we call it) to get a few last minute things for before baby comes. We saw the PERFECT shot for the PEOPLE OF WAL-MART(S) website but, alas, we were talking to relatives we saw in the store that day and neither one of us could pull a camera from our purses and shoot the photo and be the least bit discreet so we missed a golden opportunity for our entry on the PEOPLE OF WAL-MARTS WEBSITE. There will never by any couple more deserving of their spot on the web. I cannot even begin to describe it for you but a couple descriptive terms would be large woman, midriff, many tattoos…guh.

    Your little darlin’ is delightful….she is rockin’ the pink!

    Well, we can safely assume that LeeLee is a trend setter in training. I can’t wait to see the ‘Lucky’ magazine of the future…lol…can you imagine! Seriously, she is a sweetheart. Reminds me of y niece at her age…adorable!
    Walmart stores in Central NY are the same…kind of scary even! I had to give in and fly in there this afternoon…not my favorite place, certainly.
    I’m wondering if you would post more pics of your beautiful garden…I have a serious case of garden envy!

    And she’s modest too!!
    Whatta cutie ๐Ÿ™‚ You rock for letting her wear it…GO LEE LEE!!

    I am with ya about WalMart….I just get ill thinking about having to go in there…the prices are good but there is all the rest of the things to consider…they are remodeling ours and EVERYDAY things are in a different place!
    I went one day, had to return something the next and the third day, had a call from Trapper that he needed rolaids ASAP, so I popped into walmart since I was driving by….the pharmacy had just been there yesterday…where’d it go??
    Took me twenty minutes to find the rolaids…I tell ya, I could have eaten half of them on the way home for all the acid that I had after that trip!!

    Hmm…maybe I should take your daughter’s fashion advice the next time I go and it will be more fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    I must say, she did a pretty good job matching for still being a toddler! You seem to have a future fashionista on your hands!

    I linked to that website and spent a good 30 minutes laughing so hard! I hate going there and I think that just convinced me to never go there again!

    I happen to think Amelie is the most fashion forward gal I’ve seen in quite some time!

    I think it’s a hoot that you know about that site…I’m just twisted enough to check “people of Wal-Mart” fairly regularly. You MUST visit failblog.org, too!

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    GORGEOUS wee girl! And you are the best to let her do her thing!!! I agree about the made in china stuff….I always choose made in {anywhere else} before the other. Of course, made in the USA being my first choice! xx P&H

    I think her outfit is divine! Perfectly suited for her destination.

    I like a woman who know how to dress for the occasion.

    Right on Lee Lee!

    hello! we met last weekend at the (delightful) barn sale (mrs. b’s sister)…just wanted to drop in & say hello!

    also, it must be agreed that although walmart IS one of the more icky, disdainful places to shop & holds some of the most unfortunate sights to behold, your bebe would not be one of them…she is quite charming ๐Ÿ™‚

    She is too precious! Good for you for letting her go like that ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve been to that website. FRIGHTENING. More so because it’s true!!
    I’m off to read about the pagan high preist. Eish…I’m pretty sure it’s going to ruffle my feathers.

    Happy Tuesday!

    I guess Walmart is the same the world over. My husband and I were in Walmart the other day and here comes this child, about 3 or 4, dragging along, obviously tired. Or just tired of shopping. As the family passes by the pillows (in the big wire rack thingy), he sees them, stops, pulls one out, throws it on the floor and proceeds to lay down and rest a bit. We busted out laughing. It was such a “classic” Walmart moment. Where’s my camera when I need it????

    I too have come to dislike Walmart although many times it’s the only place close to where I live that carries what I need, so I am forced to shop there. A couple of months ago, my neice introduced me to People of Walmart! Hilarious!

    Of course! I’ve seen the ‘Walmart People’ photos–it’s true! They’re all over! I like your daughter’s style.
