Fall Fashion Dreams

I don't know about all of you , but there is only one thing i like about the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn and that is: Fall Fashion. The cinnamon hues and cozy scarfs, the boots and hats..i could go on!

And i will.

I have been thinking lately that the mall is not the place i can go any more to fullfil my fashion needs. In fact i am quite sick of it. First of all i don't wear Polyester. Ever. And the mall is nothing but polyester! Yes sometimes i manage to get something that.
1. Is NOT polyester
2. Fits me.
3. Is my style.

However this almost never happens and also i am sick of buying clothes made overseas ..and it is hard to shop local shops that make clothes as they are way to large for me.

So i am planning to use my local seamstress and have my clothes made for me..i could start to do it myself but after just having a baby, i have no time for anything these days! It is a girl i know that lives not far from me and has helped me sew up some gnomes for large orders in the past. 

If anyone has any dress patterns they like please let me know! I am on the hunt!

Here is a couple of inspirational ones i got so far!

Lastly check out this cute drawing i had commisioned of the family, ponyfied!

our new lIttle bundle

Well this is why i haven't blogged for awhile..we had our baby girl on Aug 24th just past midnight and it was a very fast and good delivery this time around! Her name is Aeon Sky Thiessen and she weighed in at 7 pounds! I was so nervous about trying a natural birth after having a c section with Xen but it all worked out and i am so glad i tried it instead of a scheduled c section! 

I have yet to get a picture of her with her eyes open, but she is sleeping and eating all the time now so hope to get some more in the coming weeks! We are all just trying to get life back into swing and resting up..Xen is going to preschool too now and so i will have to manage getting her fed and out the door with the baby in tow! Lately she has been so slow eating..any tips on getting a 3 year old to eat faster? She plays while eating and takes at least an hour or more!
