sugar and spice

Just because I don't have a little girl YET, doesn't mean that I haven't started collecting beautiful things for her <3
Earlier this summer, I hit an amazing garage sale with loads of little vintage dresses in perfect condition.  This mom kept everything and took such pristine care of it all.
Two weekends ago, I found another garage sale with precious little vintage dresses that I couldn't pass up.  Have a peek at my little girls' wardrobe thus far :)

*  This little dress is the lightest shade of pink and is full of amazing little details and ruffles.  It is beyond precious...

*  I adore the huge collar on this one and the sweet sweet rosebuds...

not to mention, the back has these adorable heart shaped buttons!

*  The color and the ruffles of this one are just perfect...

*  I scored four of these little vintage slips, each of them as lovely as the next but also really different.  My favorite part is that only one of the straps has the button detail.  Sooooo cute!

* a light pink slip...

*  the lovely eyelet detail of another slip...

* lovely lavender

*  this one makes me smile so much because I can literally picture my little brown skinned girl running around in this :)

*  this one reminds me of Shirley Temple :)

Now, all I need is my little girl to fill these dresses.  As you can see by the little tracker at the bottom of the blog, we are almost halfway there!!!
In case you are new to this blog, you can read all about our adoption dreams right here.
love love!
