Wonderful Wizard of OZ
EARLY FALL 2011 PREVIEW!!!
If you know me, you know that I am a little bit "excitable". The excitement I get over Megan's new designs is, admittedly, a little strange considering that I don't even have children, but oh well...it's never too early to start planning, right? ;). I know that I said that I would start the previews Monday, but I just couldn't wait. This is absolutely my favorite dress yet (although I am definitely a little biased).
If you ask my mother (or father or thoroughly annoyed brother), I was completely obsessed with the Wizard of Oz as a child. When I say obsessed, I mean that I watched the movie at least twice a day, dressed up as Dorothy for three Halloweens in a row (I'm sure that my brother loved having to be the lion, tin man, and scarecrow..I had to stop once we ran out of matching things for him to be :), and wore my hair in pigtails with red shoes EVERY DAY. (Confession: I still love red shoes!) ...Looking back, it seems a tad bit unhealthy..!
Luckily, Megan's youngest daughter, Lyla Gray, has the same obsession...that girl knows every word to "Over The Rainbow". For a while, her daily routine was to put on a Dorothy costume, get a black stuffed dog, and belt it out (it was pretty cute)! So, although I would like to say that Megan designed this for me, I know who she really had in mind..:).
Seriously? How adorable is this!? If it wasn't totally creepy, I'd buy one just hoping to have a daughter to wear it one day! So, if your daughter is as obsessed with Dorothy as I was and, like me, tries to wear the costume every single day...in PUBLIC (Sorry Mom!)...this is the perfect compromise!
Think this is great? I have something that makes it even better...ta-DA!...a matching boys outfit! (No, it doesn't have Dorothy on it :).
...It has TRUCKS! Every little boy loves trucks, right? (I know my brother would have definitely voted for trucks over a scarecrow costume). These outfits are made from the same blue gingham and color smocking to make them the perfect matching brother/sister outfits! This way, EVERYONE is happy (and, seriously, how often does that happen!?).
Obviously, this is just one of the adorable Fall 2011 designs coming out mid- July! Keep checking in next week for more...you know I won't be able to contain my excitement for long. Luckily for you, patience has never been my best virtues. :)
P.S. HAPPY Friday (obviously my favorite day of the week!)
