Fashion visionary, so to speak

Right before Stella began wearing her fabulous French glasses, we purchased this (currently sold out) onesie from Threadless:

The "I Love Fairy Tales" 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):

Pirate Girl Onesie from Hanna Andersson

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.
