Once toddlers begin to sing, the potential for lyrical "enhancements" takes on comic possibilities. That is, on purpose or not, they can mangle songs in a very funny way. Molly had just learned the song "Hot Cross Buns", a simple and straightforward tune. One day she was wearing pink pants, and started singing "Hot Pink Pants, Hot Pink Pants, one-a-penny, two-a-penny, Hot Pink Pants!"
Our new Spring Arrivals lack Hot Pants, pink or otherwise, but we've added some great pink smocked dresses by Vive la Fete and Jeanine Johnsen. Have a look!
The first is a stunning dress by Vive la Fete, the Pink Smocked Party Dress. The smocked area in front has amazing detail, with a white chevron design reminiscent of Bois de Rose. Integrated with the white chevron are pink flower designs in vertical columns. The collar has subtle red and white stripe piping on both edges and this is carried down below near the hem on top of a ring of ruffles. Sizes are from 4T to 6X. This dress has a lot of wonderful subtle touches, perfect for birthday parties in the Springtime!
For smaller girls, there is the Vive la Fete Pink Smocked Sun Bubble Dress. It features the same white chevron with flower design the the Party Dress has, but in a rectangle on the front. This would be perfect for a pair of sisters - similar, but different enough to not be too cute. The sizes range from 6 months to 24 months. The collar has the same red and white piping.
Changing it up, we have a lovely dress from Jeanine Johnsen, the Soft Pink Striped Dress. Fairly simple, the narrow ruffled collar adds just enough to make it stand out and get noticed. It is fully lined and comes with a complimentary pink and white striped panty cover. Sizes are 6-12 m, 12-18 m, and 18 to 24 m.
Do you have funny story about how your little one mangled (er, improved) a song? Would you share it with us? Either here on the blog or on Facebook, we'd love to hear it!
