Can You Guess The Classic Children's Book?

Dress: Thrifted
Headband: Thrifted
Shoes: Thrifted
Socks: Target
White Collar: Thrifted doily
Bow Tie: Hand made.

If you guessed it then you win 10 awesome points! (if you haven't, scroll to the bottom)

No one but my awesome little sis was able to guess correctly (she's cool like that) and she, apparently, never even read the books when she was little. I guess it was more my thing and with the age difference it wasn't something that I would have still had out and about by the time she was old enough to appreciate it.

I couldn't comfortably spend the day with a yellow crown on my head so I substituted the velvet ribbon vintage headband I bought a couple weeks ago (WIN) nor do I have white spats.
(I HAVE spats, just not WHITE spats ;-))

So there you have it, my interpretation of a Royal Male Elephant's clothing made over for a common girl to wear every day. :-)

I have ideas for characters every day this week EXCEPT for Saturday. Soooo, if you can think of someone to suggest, please let me know. I'm currently stumped.

Lovies and leg warmers,

Such a cute outfit!

Cute! How about Eloise or Corduroy?

The Body Electric said...

Thanks friends! I'm having so much fun with it, I'm going to be sad when it's over!

Hmmm maybe Eloise. I already thought about Corduroy, Ms. Stephanie, but there's not much to go on for that. I'd have to have green overalls...which I don't. I can't come up with any variation. Other than just something green...which I already used for today's post. I'll see what I can do! Thanks for the idea!

"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines,
lived tweleve little girls in two straight lines.
They left the house at half past nine...
The smallest one was Madeline."
