Macie in Grey

IMG_4400  IMG_4396IMG_4389IMG_4416IMG_4403

Macie was trying out one of our most popular custom hat choices (grey bowler with blush trim) as well as this adorable new dress I picked up from Closet4Chloe, and I thought she looked so stylish I had to give her her own post. Macie really pulls off the girly-meets-edgy look, wouldn’t you say? I love the mix of the delicate lace on the dress with a studded leather purse.

I’ll only be taking a few more hat orders before Christmas, so be sure to get yours in soon if you want it in time for the holidays!

What Macie is Wearing:
Dress: Closet4Chloe 
Hat: Clarisse’s Closet
Purse: DesignsbyOrvie
Scarf: InMarigoldsAttic
Tights: AG Brand
Shoes: Addy’s Classic Meet

A (Slightly) Spooky Halloween

I just love a good costume party for Halloween! Last year’s photo-booth party was a blast, so this year we invited some friends over for another costumed get-together!

I decided to make a special costume for myself this year- a mermaid!

Pippa… trying to be scary, but everyone knows she’s the biggest scaredy-cat at the party!

Camille always likes to be something silly, so we were crafty and made her cupcake!

Theo headed right for the candy and punch…

Then he wanted to see who he could scare, so we turned all the lights off and huddled in around his flashlight to hear a spooky story.

Some of us were not too easily scared…

But some of us were!

But we all had a great time! Happy Halloween!

When in Doubt, Layer

Clarisse's Closet   Clarisse's Closet Clarisse's ClosetClarisse's ClosetClarisse's Closet

It occurred to me that my flannel shirt selection is quite lacking, which is a shame considering flannels are a fall necessity. This classic AG flannel is in almost everyone’s wardrobe, though I must say it is more often seen borrowed by my brother than it is worn by me, so I’m adding more fitted flannels to my shopping list. Thankfully, there is always the option of layering to disguise clothing that isn’t your favorite fit- so this sparkly maroon sweater was just what I needed to complete the outfit.

What I’m Wearing:
Flannel: AG Cargo Outfit 
Sweater: Clarisse Original
Jeans: Clarisse’s Closet Fall 2015 Collection
Boots: AG Addy’s Original Meet Boots

A is for Autumn Accessories (and Apples)

IMG_3859IMG_3848IMG_3873IMG_3863IMG_3850

Today’s look was built around the quintessential fall accessories- a denim jacket, cloche hat, something flannel, and a pair of boots. While a trip to the apple orchard wasn’t in the plans for the day, this is exactly the kind of outfit I’d wear to go apple picking, and wearing it makes me want to go! I’m not sure which is my favorite part of apple picking- actually picking the apples or eating the delicious desserts that Pippa makes with them afterwards… we will have to plan a trip to our local orchard soon!

What I’m Wearing:
Jacket: AG Coconut’s Best Friend
Top: SparrowandWren (JanieJumps)
Pants: AG Horse Lover 
Boots: AG Blue Ribbon Riding
Scarf: LaPoupeeBijoux
Hat: Clarisse Original

September’s Swan Song

So long September, tomorrow’s October! If you haven’t already unpacked your flannels, sweaters, and boots, now is the time. Well, at least for us here in the Northern U.S. and everywhere else that is blessed with fabulous cool weather and the smell of autumn leaves during this time of year. I hadn’t made a new “Clarisse Original” for myself in a while, and I’m not sure what inspired me to go with a swan for the sweater, but thank you to whatever it was because I’m pretty in love with it.

What I’m Wearing:
Sweater and Collar: Clarisse Originals
Skirt: @agmarket on Instagram
Boots: AG Saige’s Meet

Questions for Clarisse: Lindsey’s Meet Sweatshirt

Here’s another requested restyle: GOTY 2001 Lindsey’s meet sweatshirt! Here is her original outfit:

The following outfits were created using Polyvore, with items from AG, Etsy, Ebay, and a few basic girl-sized pieces to fill in the gaps.

Lindsey in 2015: To start off, I created an outfit similar to Lindsey’s original one, but updated the pieces other than the sweatshirt to be a little more 2015 and less 2001! The khaki moto pants and red converse echo Lindsey’s sporty style, while a plain green V-neck tee makes a nice alternative to her original tee. In lieu of her little red barrette, I added a red beanie hat, which is a popular look right now, and one I can definitely imagine Lindsey rocking as she rides her scooter (or perhaps now she would have moved on to longboarding).

Lindsey's Jacket Outfit 2
Pieces Shown:
V-neck Tee: Camelot’s Treasures
Moto Pants: Maddie’s Girls
Red Sneakers: 18InchDolls
Beanie: Girl sized (Similar Here)

 AGP Bound: This next look plays up the red accents again, and would be a great one for a shopping trip, especially to an AG store! The sweatshirt looks great over a classic AGP tee, and the other red and aqua accents add a fun style to the look.
Lindsey's Jacket Outfit 1
Pieces Shown:
Hat: AG Fun Fedora
Tee: AGP Starry Tee
Shorts: Maddie’s Girls
Bag: AG Molly’s Accessories
Sunglasses: AG Julie’s 2-in-1 Summer Outfit
Shoes: AG Starry Hoodie Outfit

Back to School: This look is a little less bold, focusing on the blues and greens for a more casual, everyday look. Black boots and glasses create a nice contrast, and a coordinating backpack is the perfect school accessory.
Lindsey's Jacket Outfit 3
Pieces Shown:
Tank: AG Ruffled Hoodie
Pants: AG Ivy’s Meet
Glasses: AG Bitty Twins’ Glasses
Boots: AG Addy’s Classic Meet
Backpack: Ebay
