Happy Easter

GREEN DRESS - Sonoma (Thrifted, thanks Mom!)
BLACK CARDIGAN - Motherhood
STRAPPY GREEN CLOGS - Charles David
EARRINGS - Forever 21
BELT - Forever 21
"Mommy!  Mommy!  I want to see what Santa Claus brought me!"  This is what Princess Sparkles exclaimed early this morning.  Early.  I had mentioned a few days ago that if she behaved well then maybe the Easter Bunny would pay her a visit.  When she asked me who the Easter Bunny was, I told her he was kind of like Santa Claus.  She got that.

Here is an amazing dress Fair Isle thrifted for $1.  YES!  You saw that correctly, $1!!!  It did look a tad old fashioned at first and we were thinking of turning it into a skirt, but then decided to widen the straps and turn it into a halter (okay, I just came up with the idea but my mom did all the work).  I really love it!

Anyway, hope everyone has a HAPPY EASTER and Santa Claus brings them lots of goodies!

Your mom has amazing taste. What a smart idea to turn the dress into a halter and to cinch it with a wide belt. You look lovely.
