Playing Dress Up

1

Today was a very good day! But first, let me backtrack a little bit. Sunday afternoon was spent dragging bags and bags of spring and summer clothes from their winter hiding place in the attic. I didn't realize quite how much I had accumulated over the winter months. I was pulling things out of bags and thinking, "hmmm... I don't even remember buying this." At one point it looked like a clothing bomb had exploded in our bedroom. There were piles everywhere! By the end of the night I finally had everything organized. I'm so excited to start putting this stuff in the shop.

But first... back to today. With all those spring and summer clothes hanging around, it seemed like the perfect time for a little dress up party. I invited a few gal pals over, put on some music and broke out the mimosas. It was tons of silly fun and we're already trying to figure out when we can do it all again!

Everything you see here (plus lots and lots more) will be hitting the shop over the next few months. I really loved seeing the clothes on real girls rather than just the dress form. It's seriously making me think about switching over for the shop photos.

Cute cute cute! Looking forward to the summer stuff for sure, I'm still buying sweaters for the shop.. I can't help it, especially if I find a good one! The pink dress with the ruffled collar is my favorite, I think!

I love the reddish skirt that the girl on the left in the second picture on the second row is wearing. Can't wait to make my first purchase from your store! (depending on the size, of course.) Everything looks so cute!

These are so fun! There's a ton of dresses I'd love to own shown here.

Also- I agree I think you should post live-model photos on your shop- it really helps!

This reminds me of the movie Heathers. Incredible.

This is the best photoshoot. The models are fabulous! It is great to the clothes on real people. I can totally imagine myself in so many of these pieces - and yes, the rainbow striped dress is OVA!

omg they all look so cute!!! I definitely vote for the clothes to be modeled on real girls in the future. I think it makes it a little easier to picture how nice something would look on!
