However today I decided could be a special treat...we weren't going anywhere and so I let her pick out her own outfit LOL. She actually didn't do too bad...the headband even kinda matched! :-)
|She picked out a dress that is still much too big!|
|I taught her a new modeling pose lol...she was fascinated with getting those|
chubby little legs to cross! ;-)
I asked Raya what she wanted to tell you all about her Fashion Friday outfit of choice. She told me "I like the skirt" and "my favorite color is Baby Bop!" lol....so take her fashion savy advice and put together an outfit this weekend---I dare ya ;-)
For our "real" Fashion Friday I am featuring the company Me & Ko today...I love their dresses! They don't have a website that I am aware of but you can usually find their dress in nice department stores (Von Maur, Macy's, etc.) or in a variety of online stores if you just google it.
We have only owned *one* Me & Ko dress, but I"d love to own more! They are pricey (around $50) but you can sometimes find them on clearance (the one we have I paid $20 for). Their claim to fame I'd say is the ruffles and how SOFT they are. Seriously, the softest things ever. Many children with sensory issues wear this brand from what I've read.
Here was Raya wearing our dress for Christmas a couple years back. It looked way cuter without the long sleeve shirt layered underneath, but this was the first picture I found of her in it :-P
One of the more current dresses I'm lusting over is this one
Suri is even a fan of Me & Ko dresses! :-)
(And as a quick side note, when looking for pictures to share I discovered this blog dedicated to Suri's fashion! haha. I've always thought she was the most beautiful celebrity kid. Check out the Suri blog if you're like me and fascinated lol)
Want something with a Me & Ko flare, but for MUCH LESS?! Well yesterday I had to run to Walmart and saw these new spring shirts they have out. The ruffle details are very similiar to the ones on Me & Ko dresses! I let Raya pick one out for her and Brielle....only $5 :-) Raya picked an icecream cone...go figure!
Also for Fashion Friday, we've got another installment of Mama's Style :-P Yesterday the girls and I went to the mall with my mom and Sawyer and Harper so I actually had reason to wear "real" clothes. Remember that cute yellow top I got at the Old Navy Outlet this past weekend? Well as you can see it's another of my favorite style....the off the shoulder baggy, but cute look. And I used to always hate wearing yellow, but I think that might be my favorite color for spring! (Don't you love my girls' shower curtain as a fashionable backdrop? lol)
|I like the button details on the shoulder|
|Proof that I have a face, and a camera doesn't just sit on a stub of a neck :-P Also, breaking out the dangly earrings haha.|
I"m not a fashionista myself....am I rocking the '80s or '90s here?! I'm not sure :-P
|Brielle basically cussed her out (in baby talk :-P)|
|And before I knew it I was taking a picture of Brielle falling backwards because Raya pushed her! oops.|
|This crying episode was a different occassion of her tantruming...I wouldn't take a picture of her actually in pain :-P|
But I love how she's keeping one eye open here....just to make sure I am watching her hissy fit!
Oh, in Etsy news, a couple "oldies but goodies" have been revamped ....a customer the other day wanted to make my "camo cutie" shirt and have it s ay "big sister" instead, for her twin girls. So we came up with a light pink/ hot pink version for them and I think it turned out cute! Check out the camo big sister listing
And as a sneak peek, here ya go :-)
Another example is the "Chick Magnet" shirt I just did last night! This was a big seller for me around Easter and someone ordered it the other day which was awesome because I had the chance to revamp it now that I machine stitch instead of hand stitch. It turned out so cute!!! This is another time intensive design but it's soooo adorable and detailed, you won't be disappointed by it!!! Check out it's Etsy listing here
And lastly, Aunt Emily....I officially hate you and this f-ing makeup kit!!! LOL. By the way, I have decided what I'm getting Harper for her birthday ;-) (And yes, I did suggest makeup as an idea so Emily is not really to blame, but I like to anyways :-P)
|I turned my back to empty the dishwasher, after explaining that the makeup was only to|
be put on HER LIPS...and turned back around to see this on her arm
|I guess in her defense *some* did make it to her lips!|
