Elsa Inspired Soho Maxi

Harbor's first dance performance -- CUTEST and funniest thing I've ever seen!

I'm so excited to share with you all my daughter's Elsa inspired Soho Maxi! Harbor had her first ballet performance a few weeks ago and it made my year (be sure to catch the video at the end of this post)!

When her ballet teacher told us that they would be doing their dance to "Let it Go" and would need Elsa costumes...I of course was super pumped because I finally had a reason to finish this Soho Maxi I started back in October!

I had originally made it as the maxi version, but didn't want her tripping on the dress...she fell down enough during the performance, I'm definitely glad I made it short ;) I just tacked up the dress underneath so it was short, bubbly and more ballerina-ish and it can easily be floor length again when she wants to play dress up.

I was running out of time and Jo Ann's was sold out of the fabric I wanted to use for her cape...so luckily I had just enough left over from my niece's Halloween costume! Not enough to make it detachable as planned, but when you procrastinate sometimes you just have to make due ;)

I've watched this performance a thousand times and I still laugh. Harbor is such a performer (always!) and of course princess ballerinas are the BEST!

And just in case you can't tell....Harbor is the 2nd to come out on the stage. ENJOY!

I never got around to posting photos of my daughter and niece in their Halloween costumes, so bonus pics for this post! I made Harbor's Anna inspired dress using brownie-goose's Bay Dress and the cape from Fleece Fun's tutorial. Kynleigh's Elsa dress was made using CKC's Elise's Everyday Princess Dress.

I hope everyone's holidays were fantastic and wish you all the happiest 2015!!

xoxo,

Mandalynn

When I heard Week 3's theme -- Sound of Fashion -- iimmediately took me back to a memory of dancing under blue skies with my girls at a music festival. Their carefree movements that day re-inspired me to go with the flow and to live life to the fullest. Drawing on that inspiration and my family's love for indie music -- rock, reggae and folk -- it was only fitting I created a pair of flowy festival designs with a bohemian vibe for my look.

I'm going to be real honest...when I heard the theme for Week 2 -- Super Hero and Heroines, I freaked out a little. It is sooo out of my realm! I immediately started brainstorming though and was so relieved within a couple hours I had a plan. And then of course didn't sleep well that night because I was working out all the details in my head. I love those full force, creative moments even if it means I don't get much sleep!
