The Sweetest Dress Ever!

If you read my last post, you saw that I really hit the jackpot last week at the thrift store with vintage dresses.  I decided to go back the next day, in the hopes that maybe they had put more out, or that I had missed some.  I'm so glad I did!  Although I only found one, this may be the sweetest little dress that has ever been made!

 It has got the prettiest smocking, sweetest ruffles, and the cutest little bow print all over.  It's by Kiddiz & Co., and I couldn't find much about them online, other than that they're from Paris.  So I'm not even sure of the age, although it is in pristine condition!


The dress is actually a 3 month size, and here's Avery, who's a large 21 month old, wearing it! Although it won't last long with her, as it was pretty tight around the neck. How I wish I had found this dress a year ago!



Since it was a little short, I paired it with tan shorts, and the sweetest little tan shoes.

And here she is showing off her shoes (this girl LOVES shoes!).  I found them on clearance at Old Navy, and now I wish I had bought them in every size, they're so cute!

I'm again linking up with Hart & Sew's Little Vintage Style.  Hop on over and check out the other cuties!

Super cute dress! I love that you can take a cute dress and have them wear it as a tunic, then as a top. Finley is definitely still wearing some of her tiny baby dresses. What an awesome thrifted find! Makes me want to go thrifting right now.

Thanks so much for linking up to Small Style! :)
