Wee Thrifty Wednesday

Hi all! I decided to do a Ellie fashion post, but she wasn’t wearing any vintage today.  She was wearing several thrifted things though, so I am making it a thrifty wee post instead 😉

This little lady is going to be turning 8 months old on the 31st!  I cannot believe how big she is.  She is now sitting up and eating cheerios.  She is just too much fun!

She has also started wearing cloth diapers with her brother in the last few weeks.  I just couldn’t shell out $100 + a month for diapers and wipes anymore.  My sister in law helped me out a bunch and we are doing great with the cloth!  I am finding out what I like and don’t like and love that I never run out of diapers at 11 p.m. anymore 😉  I have also purchased a few diaper patterns and may have to attempt to make a few myself!

This jacket is probably my most favorite thrift score ever.  I have an eagle’s eye for spotting Oilily clothing and I have found a few here and there over the years, but this one takes the cake.  Can you stand the ruffles and the Matyroshka dolls?  I collect those!  I adore them.  Now my baby has a jacket with them all over it.  I die.

Her moccasins are my other favorite find.  They are pink and they have scalloped edging.  They are perfectly girly and I found them brand new for under $5.   The box is a gem in and of itself!  They are made in Quebec Canada by a mother and son team are are called Laurentian Chief.  They stay on really well too, also very important 😉

So bring on the 9th month little one, you are too fun and we love you!

xoxo, Mom

    Gorgeous – she really is a little doll. And I can’t believe that jacket was thrifted! I have never been lucky enough to find any oilily at the thrift store, I have had a few ebay bargains but never thrifty cheap, Lucky you!

    Oooh, that’s a great find (I’m a huge fan of the Olily style and collector of Matroyshka’s too) you’ve got there – it looks adorable on.
    And congrats on turning to cloth – it’s a lot of fun for those that have fabric addictions, as well as all the other great things about it.
