playing dress up
I loved playing dress up as a kid. Digging in my mom's closet, throwing her fur around my neck and speaking in a fake French accent....clomping around in Mom's high heels, TRYING and never quite succeeding to apply lipstick (my mom wore red and still does)...Playing dress up is an important thing for girls. It was for me. I have very fond memories of that stuff.
In light of that, I keep a sliding container under my bed with Halloween costumes and dress up stuff. And today, I scored this little number for $1.00!! I love shopping at the Resourceful Woman in Leesburg. Their store is clean and even though they could charge a lot more, they simply don't. Their sales benefit abused women and children shelters, a cause I strongly support.
Micaela literally HOWLED with delight when she saw this outfit....(it's a girl's dance recital type outfit)...
One day, she'll remember playing dress-up, too.
