The Situation: You’re sitting across the sandbox from another mom, silently admiring her gladiator sandals, and thinking, "hey, she looks, cool..."
The Pickup Line: “Love your shoes. And you’re my hero for wearing them to the park.”
Why it Works: Simple—it’s always nice to hear positive feedback. “This happened to me last week when I took my girls to a music class, wearing a new pair of gold sandals,” says Tracey Frost, CEO and founder of NYC-based playgym Citibabes. “Staying true to your fashion style after a baby is a huge effort, and when someone notices, it’s even huger.”
