It’s Spring! (I think)

After one more (and hopefully last) snowstorm last weekend, it’s finally starting to feel like Spring! It’s still a little nippy at times, so a hat and little mitts aren’t uncalled for, but we’re putting the winter coats away. I decided to play stylist today with Pippa because she was having a really good hair day (does she ever not?) while I’m still brushing out a stubborn braid perm, but I’ll be back in front of the camera soon. Plus I have some other fun posts planned for this month! Yay Spring!

What Pippa is Wearing:
Sweater: Blueberry Brook on Etsy
Tank: Clarisse’s Closet
Jeans: Clarisse’s Closet
Mitts: Mimiville on Etsy
Hat: Closet4Chloe on Etsy
Bag: Designs by Orvie on Etsy
Socks: AG Josefina’s Socks
Boots: Amazon

Greetings and a Collection Preview!

Greetings AG fans! I’ve missed you! As you probably noticed, I wasn’t able to do much with Clarisse’s Closet in 2016, which was primarily because my living situation did not allow for much doll/sewing/photography room, but I’m moving to a new house next week, which should mean more space for all of the above! I was inspired to create a small spring collection to get back into the swing of things, so here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come this weekend! I’m planning the release for 8PM EST on Saturday! (Also as a little FYI, I’m currently in a kitty friendly home, so my shop is no longer pet free, though the cats don’t visit the sewing room). More details on the collection will be up soon!

Romper Pattern Now Available!

Hello friends!

I know, long time no see, but I do have something exciting to share with you! We’ve officially created our first Clarisse’s Closet sewing pattern, which is now published and available to download on Pixie Faire! We chose the romper design used in our summer and fall collections last year as our first pattern, and think it’s a fun style to sew, with sleeve and trim options that give you a chance to be creative with the finished look. If you make one be sure to share a photo!

Check out the pattern here!

I just got these cozy new boots for Christmas, so bring on the cold and snow!

Macie in Grey

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

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
