Making it Mine

I found this dress for Lucy at a consignment shop a week or two ago (I think it was $3). It was cute enough, but I decided to improve upon it a little bit to suit my (and therefore Lucy's) style.

First, I knew I wanted to cover up the embroidery on the pockets.. but then it took me a long time to figure out what kind of applique to use to cover up the design on the top.

I finally remembered this owl design that was a free download from one of my favorite blogs (called Lil Blue Boo). Isn't it so cute? This gal is so talented and you need to go check out her blog right now :).

This dress is so cute with little leggings underneath. Perfect for fall!

And believe it or not, this was the best photo I could get of Lucy wearing the dress. She moves like the wind these days!
