Baby Liberty of London and Happy Birthday Giveaway Winner!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Tuesday. My Tuesday was pretty good, despite the mid-day dentist appointment (and to be totally fair, Dr. Melanie Murphy is really wonderful, and my appointments are as pleasant as dental appointments can possibly be). So, when I was out shopping for Liberty of London stuff for me, I also picked up a few things for my 8 month-old daughter, Kate. Here she is, modeling some of her new outfits.


This little dress is really beautiful and well made. The fabric is a light cotton lawn, and the top is lined. The skirt is actually two layers - the top, printed skirt, and an underskirt, that's a creamy off-white, with a pink floral (same fabric as that around the collar) ruffled trim. There's a button closure in the back. Comes with a matching diaper-cover.

Here she is, doing her "Blue Steel" look (haha, sorry - Zoolander reference):



Here she is in a darling little romper:



This sweet little romper has a smocked bodice, with little spaghetti straps and ballooned shorts on the bottom. Snap closure at the crotch.



Shirt and shorts: Liberty of London for Target, Swing Top Set, pink/white ($12.99)

I love the little details (check out the keyhole and bow on the sleeves) in this otherwise simple garment. The top sports floral trim around the collar and sleeve-hem, as well as a butterfly-shaped floral-print appliqué with embroidery. Matching balloon shorts, in the floral print. Super cute!

Overall, I'm really pleased with the quality of the Liberty of London items - both for children and adults. The only complaint I have regarding the infant clothing (and it's minor) is that rather than stamp the label information onto the inside of the clothing, they used traditional, itchy labels - big ones, too. I'm going to have to cut them all out before letting her wear them for a prolonged time, in order to prevent skin irritation.

Here are our OOTDs:


Dress: Anthropologie Lolland Dress, size XS
Jacket: Gap (pretty old...2001?)


Top: Anthropologie Vanilla Bean Blouse, by Yoanna Baraschi, Size 2
Pants: Anthropologie trousers by Cartonnier (the ones I bought for $19.95)
Bracelet: (reeeeaally old pearl bracelet)




Wedding Set: Tam & Wong Jewelry
Cameo Ring: Oh, Hello Friend

Shoes: Charles David Wedge Heels (old...circa 2000?) 

And last but not least, the winner of our Happy Birthday Giveaway:


McManda!

(Kathryn would like to add that it's a mere coincidence that the number "27" happens to be Scott Niedermayer's jersey number.)

Thanks everyone!

  1. Kate is adorable! I saw the girls Liberty of London clothes at Target and just melted. I have 2 boys and I don't think they'd like to play dress up. Actually, they kind of do, but I can't buy the girl clothes and have the husband be happy about that.

  2. Thanks, Gemma! I know what you mean - my first is a boy, and it was the same for me, when I had just him. To be honest, Kate doesn't love playing dress-up so much, and I usually don't do this to her, but the LoL stuff was so cute, I wanted to put up photos of her in them. =)
