the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Handmade girls twirl skirt

Leta has been showing much more interest in wearing skirts lately, not just dresses, although they still comprise ninety percent of her wardrobe. So I did a quick search on Etsy to see if I could find anything, and DID I EVER. I found this adorable skirt from a shop called Lillifee Boutique. I love it because there are no buttons or zippers to fiddle with, so she can get herself dressed easily. Plus, those fabrics match just about every shirt in her closet. This is the third day in a row she’s worn it, and if I would let her she would sleep in it. But I have to draw the line somewhere, and that line is, no, take off that skirt and get back into the straight jacket, Leta.
