Wine Dots

Trashy Diva Lizzie Dress in Wine Dots print Remix Vintage Shoes It Girl Heel

Sometimes the stars align and you find an unexpected but perfect new dress.  I'm no stranger to Trashy Diva, I actually try to own at least one piece in every new collection that I like.  Spoiler alert: It's almost all of them.  I was over the moon to hear that they brought back the wine dots print in my all-time favorite fabric: Stretch rayon.  It's buttery soft, has a decent amount of stretch, and drapes like a dream.  They also used a bunch of great dress styles to highlight this collection.  Let me tell you, having to choose just one was ridiculously hard!  Read all about my decision, the Lizzie, and why I love it so much, below.

I actually purchased two dresses because I couldn't possibly decide without trying them on.  I went with the Lizzie and the Ashley.  While the Ashley was beautiful, I already own a few of them in different prints.  Plus, I had no idea how much I'd love the Lizzie.  This newer style (it was initially released in the black knit collection) features gathered half sleeves, a deep sweetheart neckline, full gathered skirt, and a full back zippered closure.  I'm not usually into plunging necklines but I had to make an exception!  It also has side pockets, which we all know is a definite win.  This dress is perfect for ladies with longer torsos like myself, which is comforting because I had a hard time finding something that worked for me in the Venice Nights collection (you can read about that HERE).  I can't even put into words how much I love this dress.  I have a feeling this will be the first of many Lizzie dresses to enter my wardrobe...

This week has been kind of a doozy for me.  I've been battling a cold, which I then passed off to Bianca.  Because she's had a hard time sleeping, I've had an even harder time sleeping!  I'm pretty sure I'm some kind of living zombie at this moment.  Anyone have any natural cold remedies to share?  This is the first time Bianca has been really sick and I'd love for her to get back to being a normal, crazy toddler!

Snow White

Vintage Inspired by Jackie Atomic Jax Keyhole Disney Bedsheet Dress

I'm no stranger to vintage dresses, but finding a well-preserved frock in your size within a decent price range is getting more and more difficult these days.  Jackie, the girl boss behind Atomic Jax, is merging vintage patterns with vintage bed sheets to create the perfect dress for every kid at heart.  This is my third custom piece from her (you can read about my Little Mermaid bed sheet dress HERE) and I couldn't be more excited to share her new keyhole dress today!  Read all about this made to order custom dress below; there might even be a coupon code down there too!

This keyhole dress comes in several Disney bed sheet prints, but this particular one is made from a pale yellow Snow White print.  Who had these exact sheets as a kid?!  It's fully lined in the bodice, so you feel completely supported in the dress alone.  As much as I tried to sneak in a bra/shapewear under there, I didn't need them!  It's rare when a mom feels totally supported without any undergarments, if you catch my drift.  The neckline of the dress is slightly off the shoulder and features a tie and a keyhole at the center.  Like my other bed sheet dress, this one features an interior double hook and eye waist stay (for that perfect nipped-in waist effect) and a full back zip.  This dress can easily slip on and off over my hips.  I'm dying to take this beauty to Disneyland... I'm pretty sure Snow White would want a keyhole dress of her own!  If you're looking to add one of Jackie's creations to your wardrobe, make sure to use the code "FALLSALE" for 20% off your entire order!  Make sure to act quickly though, this code is only good until Wednesday, December 7th!

Amsterdam

Miss Fortune Boardwalk Skirt in Amsterdam Flora & Fauna print Kitty Batwing Top in Cerise

Is there anything more perfect than novelty prints and warm weather accessories?  I rarely get to wear both of these things at the same time, so I jumped at the chance to put this outfit together.  Laura, the wonderful designer behind Miss Fortune, was sweet enough to send me this dreamy outfit and I can't wait to tell you about it!  Get all the details below:

This warm yet chic and comfortable top from Miss Fortune is the perfect piece to pull me in from uncontrollable heat to the chilly breeze of Southern California winter.  This Kitty top is made from a thick and stretchy ponte fabric, which is perfect on its own but is a great foundation for layers in those colder climates.  It comes in an assortment of gorgeous colors but this cerise shade matches perfectly with their new Amsterdam print Boardwalk skirt.  I'm such a sucker for novelty prints but fun destination prints are at the top of my list!  This 100% cotton skirt features a side zip with a top button closure, right side pocket, and a full skirt perfect for twirling.  I'm seriously in love with this skirt!

Well, holiday season is now in full swing and I couldn't be more excited.  Not only do I get to enjoy the usual holiday fun, but I also get to celebrate my birthday, my brother's, and my baby girl's birthday too.  It can be overwhelming at times!  But I'm determined to embrace the spirit of the holidays and forget about the stress.  What do you do to combat the holiday stresses/blues?
