kitty style { a little vintage Christmas}


I was going to cheat and dress Kitty in her Christmas day outfit again this morning to take new pictures. The whole of Christmas day I had my camera on the wrong setting (which basically means not on auto) so every single picture is out of focus and just blah. Anyhoo this morning we ended up going scooter riding and doing a long overdue grocery shop so there was no time left for a photo shoot. Instead I tried to fix them as as best as I could in picnik - oh how I *love* picnik!
I may still do more photos one day as this dress is postively dreamy. I bought it from Stacey knowing it had a few issues and thinking it would be just a play dress but when it arrived I was smitten. I gave it a good soak and a dose of bright Aussie sunshine and while the stains didn't go away they did fade. Then I mended lots of teeny holes in the lace inserts and a few tiny little tears in the cotton. It was worth the little extra effort as it was perfect for Christmas day and it is now a treasured part of Kitty's wardrobe.

Sadly this is the last week of little vintage style so of course we will be joining in for the last hurrah. Thank you so much Stacey for hosting such a fun link up. I have met lots of lovely vintage loving girls and their cute kiddos via little vintage style and I will miss joining in each week. Kitty style will keep going and I would love it if people left links to their own kiddos sporting vintage goodness. And don't forget small style over at mama loves papa. Why not take pics of your kids and join in the fun!

Just absolutely wonderful! Perfect little dress! And I wouldn't even know you had camera problems- yes, Picnik is a lifesaver sometimes!

Looking forward to Kitty's vintage style even without going through Stacy's linkup!

Oh I agree, this dress is so dreamy! I love the lace details. The delicate blue suits Kitty's pretty complexion perfectly.

p.s. I'm glad everyone was alright after your car accident and that it didn't take away from your merry making!
