Faire du Shopping

If Stacy and Clinton have taught me nothing else - it's that a girl can never have too many go-to basics. The oh-so-flattering pencil skirt, the great pair of tush-envy jeans, the everyday black pumps - the list goes on.
While I have already compiled a similar list for my daughter, I realized she might have to wait a few years to enjoy pumps or a pencil skirt. So, I tweaked the list to be more baby friendly. Here it is:

Stacy and Clinton's List for the Baby Fashionista
1. Endless supply of adorable everyday onesies. (Always flattering for the delicious diaper bum)
2. Copious pairs of itty-bitty shoes and socks that look like shoes.
3. A great Polo dress or twelve.
4. Black, Black, Black. Always chic, always slimming, black on baby girls is magnifique!
5. A great pair of bootylicious baby jeans. (Its never too early to shake what your mama gave you)
6. Fur. Need I say more?
7. A Ruffled swimsuit for those lazy days by the pool.
8. Apply animal prints liberally. (AAPL)
9. Leggings. The chubbier the thighs, the tastier the baby.
10. A timeless peacoat. (With matching beret of course)

I have furiously been trying to round up all of the items on Stacy and Clinton's list. From the womb, our daughter is already at the top of her game in terms of fashion. Who said never wearing the same thing twice is a bad thing? Definitely not our beignet, she's ready to take the shopping world by storm.

I'll show our efforts by displaying the following photos. We are currently hard at work at number one on Stacy and Clinton's list and Grandma She-She and Grandma Jordan are furiously working on numbers 2-10. (Gotta love the Grandmas)

Here are some onesies that Aunt Darel and I have been working on the past several weeks:
They are super easy to make and really fun. If we can do it, anybody can!

Wish me luck with the shopping Gods.

Oh and here is a picture of me. I am 27 weeks today.

your baby is already so lucky.
Two questions:

1. What are your go-to baby shopping locations?
2. Are you having a shower? Do you think you might get some fun (and, admittedly, some ugly) things for her then? I suppose you can never have too much of a good thing :-)

Way to go- I'm living vicariously through you!

Aw you have a cute belly:) Still looks so tiny!

P.S: I'll take like a baker's dozen of the cupcake onesies please. Oh no, you've got me started on shopping for non-existent baby.

Have I mentioned that I am way excited for you? Your belly is so cute and you need to do a blog about how you made the onesies!

Littlest Darel is so spoiled and she's not even here yet. Slow down sis! Pretty cool onesies.

Darcee said...

I miss you! Come back from your cruise so we can chat! BTW, you are rocking that 27 week belly! I bought a little something for your fashionista this weekend. i couldn't pass it up and it didn't come in Ally's size, so I bought it for you. It looks like you. :)
