Dear Chasing Fireflies: Our catalog obsession

(This blog post and video are made possible by a partnership with Chasing-Fireflies. If you haven’t seen their catalog, then.. well.. read on..)

As an adult — you probably have a favorite store or designer. Penn can lose himself in an Apple store for days. Me? Drop me off in front of a Williams-Sonoma and I’m good for at least a week. (YES! I NEED a ruffled pie plate in every color)

For our children, it’s Chasing Fireflies. They don’t have a brick and mortar store — but they send these catalogs. THE CATALOGS. They are like something out of a dream for a little one. The clothes and costumes are fantasy-like. I don’t even know how we got on their mailing list years ago but they are our special occasion go-to since their catalog made it to our mailbox.

SIDE NOTE: You remember those striped Christmas Jammies we wore last year? Yep. We bought them from Chasing Fireflies.

Additional side note from Mom on a SoapBox: I don’t know about you — but it’s been harder and harder for me to find age appropriate clothing for my little girl. She’s seven. Does she need an off-the shoulder, midriff baring shirt? A scoop neck, glitter dress? SHE’S SEVEN. So I’m thrilled when she circles a sweet dress in the Chasing Fireflies catalog.

So imagine our children’s reaction when we got a call FROM Chasing Fireflies. It looked a little like this:

Our family will be featured in an upcoming catalog, you guessed it, in our Christmas Jammies.

We put this video together for them: It explains our children’s obsession with their products and how we handle it.

Watch it. Share it. And get the catalog.

  1. I agree 100% fining age appropriate girls clothing is a nightmare, I refuse to have my god daughters dressing the way some of the stores want them to — I absolutely love this catalog and get very excited when a new one comes to my mailbox as well.

  2. You guys absolutely crack me up. I want to be your neighbor! That catalog is insane, and magically arrives at my door all too often. Can’t wait to see you guys in it!

  3. Finding age appropriate clothes for girls has been a problem for a very long time. I had this problem for both my daughters (my oldest is 31!).
