    A 4-year-old fashionista????

    Fashion rules for stylish Edmonton four-year-old

    Like every proper fashionista, shoes are very important to Isabella, who has 30 pairs. Her favourites have sparkly sequins on them, even the running shoes she wears in school.

    30 pairs of shoes? Are you serious?

    I guess it's like having a real live Barbie doll for the mother.

    She has more pairs of shoes than I have

    She always asks, ‘Oh, what do you think of this, Mom?’” And because Bella changes outfits 10 to 15 times a day, she asks that a lot.
    10 to 15 times a day . Good grief.

    30 pairs of shoes is not excessive for an adult. For a growing child, that's insane.

    Since she's such a fashionista at 4, I wonder if she's humanitarian enough to send a few pair to less fortunate kids. Or doesn't the mother teach/mention things like that to a child?

    I agree with the above poster. It's like the mother plays with a living doll.

    “I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh! What have we created! Our child is kind of a diva!’ But I’ve thought about it, and now I’m like, I take pride in the way my children look. I want them to look good. I don’t want them to just wear sweats all the time.”


    The explanation the mom gives, saying that obviously they are in a position to pay for it all, and that she grew up Russian Orthodox and until the age of 20 wore only handmade Russian dresses, gives some insight as to why she lets her kid be such a clotheshorse, but good grief. Forget in 10 years, she already sounds like a nightmare.

    I agree. I have a few dozen shoes (all types), but they've accumulated over the last decade. Does a 4 year old's feet even stay the same size long enough to wear all the shoes?!

    Kids love playing dress up, so this is not surprising at all. Changing 10 to 15 times a day is just like having a great dress up trunk, but with normal clothes and not costumes.

    30 pairs of shoes for a growing child is a bit silly, but maybe some are hand me downs from other kids in the family?

    the article talks about the parent spending thousands of dollars a year on clothes for this kid - I would be very surprised if there is anything handed down to her.

    Boy, talk about enabling.

    Yes, kids like to play dress-up, but any parent who allows her kid to change clothes 10-15 times a day is not teaching that kid very good lessons about what's worth spending time on and what isn't.

    And I notice that the mom and kid are shown shopping at a high end kids' boutique, which makes me think that the kid is learning that labels and $$$ are what's important in possessions. Which is not a very good lesson either.

    Well better to spend thousands on lots of stuff (that can go to a charity shop when she's done) than thousands on a single purse for a 4-year old Suri-Cruise style.

    If they have the money, I see no problem in them spending it.

    Hmmmm. Wonder if I could make some serious money introducing the parents to the word NO? And people wonder where entitlement comes from!

    I guess I don't know why this is deemed story worthy, but to each his own...

    Pffft. 30 pairs of shoes. Big deal.

    Why don't you have a mini-giraffe, little girl? Huh???? Tell mommy you want a mini-giraffe and you want it NOW.

    How do we know they have the money? They claim they can afford it. But lots of people think they can afford that amount/$$$ of stuff and it's only because they're ignoring the mountain of debt that they're piling up.

    why do we care if they're accumulating debt turning their kid into a materialistic diva?
