All that glitters with H&M's St. Pete opening

Some background: I've been on Deal Diva hiatus for many months, welcoming a baby into my life. But as burp clothes proliferated, shopping became a joy of my past. My only purchases in almost a year centered around utility runs to the Old Navy clearance racks.

Then last week, H&M opened a second location in Tampa Bay at Tyrone Mall in St. Petersburg. And the store famous for affordable trendy just had to take out an ad in the Tampa Bay Times showing the most adorable sequinned top for $9.95.
It's flirty. It's sparkly. 
It's not machine-washable. 
If I bought it, my darlin' would rip apart the delicate material in minutes. Or add pea stains to the shoulder. And I'd feel guilty about spending even $10 when I'm in pack-your-lunch; childcare-is-crazy-expensive mode.
But I want it. So what's a Diva to do, other than pout?
