If she were wearing designer shoes and carrying a designer bag and had a designer hairdo etc.  I would go up to her and say why don't you pay for it with the money you bought all your designer goodies with?


I would embarrass her by talking very loud about it. 


If she were poorly dressed, the child also and she really looked down on her luck, I most likely would not say anything.  But if you are getting ideas and keeping track as to how much you could steal without interference from people by using the above scenario just remember there are pictures being taken throughout the store and someone whose job it is to watch them.
