Friday Fancies – a Birthday Ensemble and a Room

Friday Fancies – a Birthday Ensemble and a Room

It’s fancy time…

And for today’s outfit, I’ve put together something I’d love to wear to my daughter’s birthday party tomorrow.
She actually chose the skirt…while sitting beside me, she said ‘I like the pink one because it reminds me of you.”
She has as strong connection to colour and always wants things to be ‘her favourite colour and my favourite colour,” so in honour of her party, this is a red and pink outfit…not that I mind much- love these two shades together.
The party is a princess art theme so I needed something that would pass Scarlett’s pretty test (hence no pants/jeans) but could still be comfortable enough to play around with/help a bunch of five year olds…no high heels etc.
So, here’s what I came up with for the soiree.
You can have a look at this week’s collection of fabulous fancies, but clicking HERE.
And since we’re on the topic of fancy, I thought why not show you this room I whipped up for my little red cupcake.
In my dream world , I’d love to eventually give her this room as a birthday present but with the giant kitchen overhaul, I think we’re looking at birthday #6, or maybe even the one after that…lucky 7s…we’ll see.

Anyhoo, here’s my vision for Scarlett’s room.

I think this is board three I’ve done for her room but for some reason, when I saw the original version of this space with that floral/birdy deliciously gorgeous wallpaper, that was it.
The whole thing just works feels like my Scarlett- lots of quirk, lots of whimsy, and lots of flare…it just is my little red.
Even hubs, who wants absolutely NOTHING to do with more $$ spending/renovating, loved it and wanted to see it happen…eventually.
So hopefully, a room similar to this will be coming to my house, in the not toooooo distant future:)
Oh and PS, I have to quickly remind you that the Bloggers Give Back auction ends tomorrow, so click over and bid for heaven’s sakes…so many great items are still suuuuch a good deal.
The stunning Cory Renee leopard clutch is still at $12 and the Delta faucets (1, 2, 3) are way below retail so check it out.  I’m currently the highest bidder on the Leigh Viner original, so my selfish side is hoping you don’t go for that one, but it’s for a good cause so bid if you must:)  There’s also a gorgeous Sarah Jane poster, Matt Leblanc original, tickets to the Toronto Symphony/dinner, Ju Ju Be bag, and
ruflly clutch still available so yes please and thank you…bid!!!
And with that, I wish you all a very happy long weekend.

    I just adore the fact that Scarlett wants you to wear “both of your favorite colors”…. Too cute! Such a great outfit, that sea foam belt with the gold buckle is the perfect touch, and I love how the bracelet pulls it all together! And scarlett’s room-to-be is AMAZ!!!! So whimsical and special for a precious little girl! Xoxo

    That is one lucky little girl.
    Some of my best memories with my mother involve going to the dressmaker and picking fabric and designs together… She’ll never forget the effort you put into all of this.
