Hooked on Vintage

I don’t know if there is much surprise here but I am absolutely hooked on vintage clothing for Josie.  Ever since my lovely Aunt sent over this adorable bubble…

I knew that Josie needed more smocking, more bubbles and more vintage in her life.  So I took to ETSY and I have found some real one of a kind treasures…

This little strawberry smocked bubble and the smocked plaid dress came from this shop.



The dress and bubble came from this shop.


This special dress I have saved for her birthday.  It’s so sweet and I just love the collar on it.  It came from Soubrett Vintage

You want to know a little secret?  You don’t spend a fortune on these beauties either.  The trick is that you have to hunt.  I hunt around a lot.  Um…like it’s my full time job a lot.  But it’s oh so much fun.  It’s my way of pretending that we are southern (a life long dream).

    Well you KNOW I love that last sentence. We do adore our smocking down here. I’ve actually considered taking a class. (Though I’m not sure how much smocking I would need without children…)

    I think Josie needs to come to Santa Cruz and spend some time with Auntie Allie when she gets home. Hopscotch, here we come!

    I love your smocked dresses. Your grandmother dressed your mom and Glovie in these dresses all the time. Adorable!!!!! Julie

    I love smocked dresses too. I dressed both of my daughters when they were young in these delicate dresses. I handmade a smocked dress and it is very time consuming but to me there is nothing prettier. Josie is absolutely precious!

    ALL little girls should wear smocked dresses. My girls wore smocked bubbles and dresses every day and I’m saving every one of them for granddaughters. And being southern is the best- come on down!
