Right before Stella began wearing her fabulous French glasses, we purchased this (currently sold out) onesie from Threadless:
This is the "I Love Fairy Tales" design from Threadless. If you look closely, you'll notice small wings coming out of the bespectacled frog's mouth, and a tiny wand on the ground in front of him. Look even closer you can see the yogurt that Stella had just devoured.
Soon after Stella started patching, I found this beauty at Hanna Andersson (we got the onesie but they make a shirt version, too):
Stella LOVES this thing. She keeps pointing at the skull and crossbones (complete with a pink bow) while saying, "Pirate girl! Wearing heart eye patch!" Which sums it up quite nicely.
Okay I just had to throw this shot in, too. I just like the pose. She was pretty delighted about her look. The onesie, rain boots, and black leggings totally WORK. On her. I could never pull this off.
Who knew visual challenges would wind up being such huge fashion inspiration? But then again, as I always say, “When life gives you lemons, make them the palette for a zesty, cheerful new wardrobe.”
Note: Even though we bought a Canon SLR, it’s somehow often dead or too far away when impromptu photo opportunities strike. So as you can probably tell, these are all un-fancified iPhone shots–no effects or anything added because I’m way behind the times in that particular area, among others. Ah, well, she’s cute through any lens.
