Last night I went to my first ever Matilda Jane Trunk Show....and it was the first ever trunk show I did to sell my own things! It was so much fun and I cannot believe the amount of orders I took. Seriously, any orders from here on out won't be able to be fulfilled until after Christmas. I can tell that everyone is thinking about getting hats for the cooler weather coming up! It feels good that I am making money doing what I love, but it is also overwhelming to think of all of the work I have ahead of me. All in all, I'm flattered that there was such an interest in my hats.
Due to the great outcome of the trunk show, I allowed myself the opportunity to splurge on something for Belle. Let's be honest here. I am a Dutch girl who majored in Social Work. I am cheap. I am really cheap. So, Matilda Jane clothing is not really the type of stuff I would ever consider purchasing for Belle. I don't even spend that much on my clothing, let alone a growing girl! However, I took the opportunity to really buy something adorable for her. This is what I got:
Adorable, huh? The upside (my cheap bone is really sticking out here), the skirt can be worn year round with or without leggings, AND I am praying it fits her waist till she is about...oh, 10? Haha, well, at least 3. If I spent $60 on this sucker, it better last forever!
Okay, now onto the fun stuff! I realize this post is insanely long, but bear with me. The fun exciting stuff is this next part...a giveaway!
You know how I was just talking about how busy I have been lately? Well, Monday I got these babies in the mail from Diane from Something Diane Made. These are NOT your grandma's slippers!
Diane and I attended the same high school, although didn't really connect until recently with our mutual LOVE for all things crochet :-) She has recently opened up an Etsy shop and has major cute things for sale!! She wanted to share these slippers she made with me so I could give you a sneak peek of what one lucky person is going to win!
I'll introduce Diane more on Thursday and let you know how you can win a pair of these slippers. TRUST ME, you will want a pair for the cooler weather coming up. I love coming home from my internship, slipping off my heels, and spoiling my feet in these :-)
In the meantime, check out her Etsy shop, Something Diane Made and her blog and drool over all the other lovely items this girl makes!
