Fashion Plates

Do you remember Fashion Plates? Those pink plates that had Barbie looking figures on them, and you could mix and match the outfits and then color them in?

I had totally forgotten about this awesome toy until I rummaged through the closet of Local Lily's Brandi Walsh. She showed them to me thinking I would get a kick out of it, and of course I had to sit down and color a bit.

I had forgotten how much I love to color and how AWESOME and simple the toys were back then. It seriously made me want to go out and buy some coloring books and just doodle for an hour. For me, it's one of those activities that totally relaxes my mind.

Does anyone else out there love to color or remember playing with Fashion Plates???

I have wonderful news to share with you...I am now a monthly contributor on YAY! If you haven't visited Local Lily before, then I'm happy to be the first person to tell you about it. It's a website devoted to all things local in the State of Arizona. From fashion to food to entertainment for your kids, this is a great website to find out how you can support local businesses AND enjoy great experiences in Arizona. Local Lily only writes reviews on places they have visited and LOVED. I suppose you can say they follow the rule of sharing only when you have something nice to say. I love that!

So, once a month you will see a post from me sharing how to create fun outfits. I'm hoping to also explore some fabulous clothing boutiques and share about my experiences too!

Go stop by and say hi. Also, download your free copy of Your Guide to an Arizona Summer That Doesn't Suck.

Happy Monday!
