Back to School Blog Tour - Odeline Dress.

It's back to school time in the Northern Hemisphere and all the cute outfits and adorable first day of school photo shoots are taking over my Instagram and Facebook feeds. I love it, it reminds me of growing up in the States, posing in my fresh new school clothes in front of the house I grew up in. The smells of summer and freshly cut grass infiltrating my senses while my mom takes an embarassingly long time to take a photo of me standing next to my little sister, smiles plastered to our little faces. You better believe I'm doing...

Project Run and Play - Week One. Laneways and Babyccinos.

This season I am honoured to be a part of Project Run and Plays first stop on their round the world tour, along with a group of talented and lovely designers from Down Under. I had a lot of fun putting my outfit together for the first challenge "Patriotic Parade" where I got to portray the city I call home - Melbourne.  Melbourne is city known for cafes and laneways, artists and artistic expression. I took all that into consideration when designing this look for my own aspiring Artiste.  I found this amazing fabric a few weeks back and it had...

Circus Performer!

The finale in our Halloween series is none other than a Circus performer! I guess you could say I saved my favourite for last. After we dabbled in gymnastics, ballet and mixed dance classes we finally found the perfect match for Lottie - Circus classes!

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz is one of our all time favourite classic stories. A couple of months back we recreated Dorothy's look for book week at Lottie's school ...  Her little sister wanted to be involved as well but she's too tiny for book week, so when Halloween came around I thought it was a perfect time for her to get involved. Well, that and the fact that I can't get enough of dressing her up as furry creatures - so it seemed like a match made in heaven.  Cue the (not so) cowardly lion! For this little lion I used the...


Minnie Mouse!

Minnie Mouse!

Todays Costume in our lead up to Halloween is a bit of fun because we took the kitty costume from yesterday, switched it up a bit and gave it a whole new look. We usually have a few parties and events to go to around this time of year so this way we can mix up our looks with just a few simple changes.  Sewing wise I used the Merry Go Round skirt and extended the waistband 1.5" so I was able to fold it over a .5" and then another 1" to create a elastic casing without having to...
