Second Star to the Right

This incredibly lovely dress was sent to me from Kelly of Nameless Cat Vintage. I just love Kelly's Etsy shop- it has such a whimsical, fairy-tale feeling to it. All of her clothing is so unique and playful! Make sure you get a chance to have a look, she's got some great pieces to snag!

I love this dress for many different reasons. For one, the material is SO comfortable! And it doesn't wrinkle 
(a huge plus for me). It appears to be handmade, and whoever sewed this did an excellent job. All of the stripes match up at the seams ( my grandma was very impressed by this-hehe). And I am so curious as to how the skirt was hemmed with such perfection- you can't even see the stitching! Uh-oh, now I have a whole new skill to master this Summer! If you love this dress as much as I do, you can find a somewhat similar one in her shop here

I titled this post Second Star to the Right because this outfit sort of reminds me of Wendy from Peter Pan. See what I mean?

Aren't these bows amazing? Can I just say right now... best accessory ever. These were sent to me from Amanda of A Bow for Teagan. She handmade these and they are so nice! The quality is just impeccable. The material feels like a sturdy cotton of some sort so the bows have a very expensive feel to them. But hey! Best part! They are oh so affordable! These particular bows came in a set of three for $10! Alright ladies, that's better than Charming Charlie's prices right there. 

One thing you may notice is that the bows in the shop come on little headbands. Amanda posts the cutest pictures on Instagram of her adorable daughter, Teagan (hence the shop name :-). So the shop is inspired for little ones. With that said, Amanda did the greatest thing for me and put my bows on strong little clips. If you are wanting to pick some up I'm sure she would do the same for you!

One more thing! Many of you have probably heard of the scare about GFC closing down.  I wanted to look into it before I made a big deal on here. But now after researching, unfortunately it seems to be true. I think a lot of us are a little unsure of what to do. Let's be honest, building up a following isn't super easy and we're all thinking, now what? So I have a plan. I would love it if anyone who wants to continue following would join through Beautiful in God's Eyes via Bloglovin'. I am also making a list of all who follow this blog via GFC so that I can do the same for you. This is a big change but we're all in this together!

I follow you on Bloglovin' anyway . .I actually never liked Google's reader, though I used to use it.
This dress reminds me of one I had that was so similar and also vintage. The collar was different and the colors were a little different, but the way it was made and that pattern is similar! so cool. Looks great on you too!! I love it!

Beautiful ensemble! I love the dress on you (and I'm so excited to check out her shop!), and with the collar and bow in your hair, it's perfect. Very Wendy-esque!
