LUCY JANE studio - Wear it, Carry it, or Hide it.

In the past year or so, I've changed the way I shop for clothes.  I buy most my kids everyday play clothes secondhand, and then purchase their "special" outfits from handmade vendors off Etsy.

I met my friend Kim about a year ago at a local moms group and she told me she loved to sew and had an Etsy shop called LUCY JANE studio. She designs and creates little girls dresses, nursing covers called ta ta tents, and some really adorable purses and totes.  I rushed home to check her store out.

Oh my.  This dress.  I had to have it for my daughter.



I loved it from the moment I saw it.  The soft fabric would be perfect for this Fall, the color combinations would transition lovely into the holidays.  Since it was a pinafore style dress, I knew it would look great this year as a dress, and next year as a long top.

Isn't it adorable?

 Know what is icing on the cake?  Kim probably has the best craftsmanship I've ever seen.  Her items are made so unbelievably well. And can you believe she's a work-from-home mom with twin little boys?  (yes, she has twin BOYS!)

LUCY JANE studios isn't just another Etsy shop.  This month, her Ta-Ta Tents ($25) are being featured in the Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine!  How amazing is that?  And to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she's throwing in free shipping on all the Ta-Ta Tents!


WIN IT!  We've got a $35 gift certificate to give away to one lucky Simple reader.  To enter, visit LUCY JANE studio, come back here and tell us what you would get if you won!

  2. I love the ta ta tents. I bought one but I've come to realize that I need more then that since I have and can never seem to keep it in my diaper bag. Then when i'm out I have to use a makeshift one by tucking blankets into my bra strap while i'm nursing.

    I also love the Farmer's Market Tote in Red Flower!

    So again, in case the first doesn't count:
