A Faux Leather Fur Vest and other "Accessories"

Lately Pigtails has been really into accessorizing. 
Unlike Princess Sparkles who loves tutus, crowns and anything girly, Pigtails prefers paper bags, buckets and toys.  She's creative with how she wears them too, often over her head so she can't see.  Then she runs...right into the walls.

DRESS - Liz Lange Maternity (Target), $7
FAUX LEATHER AND FUR VEST - Target
WOOD BRACELET - Heavenly Treasures
ORANGE PATENT HEELS - Vince Camuto (Thrifted), $10


Here's a maternity dress I recently got on the clearance racks at Target for $7.  I was trying hard NOT to buy anymore maternity clothes, but I couldn't help myself with this dress (and the super sweet Pastor Pleats generously gave me a Target gift card - Thanks, Pastor Pleats!).  I'm wearing it with my thrifted heels, but boots would be great too!  I'm also wearing a Target vest I purchased a few years ago.  I love it because it reminds me of the 70's!

Pigtails wearing her "hats"
and her "bracelets"
I know, I've been wearing a lot of vests lately.  But they're so practical, not only do they keep me warm and don't restrain my arms, but they help pull together an outfit.  Like Pigtails and her "hats," they've become my favorite accessory!

That dress is so pretty, I love the colours in it & the subtle pattern. Also it was only $7???!!!? I wish there was a target here (Canada). We really don't have anything comparable. We have zellers which is the same idea I think but the clothes there are nothing like the stuff at target.

I love the vest as a layering piece! And by the end of the my pregnancy, I was basically wearing the same skirt every day, and I would have given anything to go buy something new. Anything... :)

And seriously, those heels are gorgeous!
