Love Day of the Dead festivities for sugar skull craftiness and freshly baked pan de muerto?
But what about fashion? With all those intricately designed skulls and bright colors, Day of the Dead kicks Christmas and Thanksgiving’s a**, with decorative holiday patterns kids will actually want printed on their clothes. Don’t get us wrong, we have nothing against a subtle reindeer or turkey applique on the occasional coverall, but stuff like this? Um. Nope.
The Day of the Dead Pillowcase Dress is where it’s at, by the way. No, it’s not actually made from a pillowcase, but 100% soft cotton, giving it the cozy feel of its namesake (and made to order, no less). Because each piece is made by hand, no dress is the same, so you can be sure your little girl is going to be the most unique looking Day of the Dead Diva on the block. The dress is great for all seasons, too (and duh, especially November) with an elastic neckline, plus thick polka dot shoulder straps, hem and a too-cute side bow that brings the sassy skull design all together. Perfect for the beach when the sun is out, but just as great to wear with a pair of striped stockings, cardigan and Mary Janes in the cooler months.
So if you’re not already celebrating Dios de los Muertos, doesn’t this dress make you want to start preparing for the big day? (Hint: wait ‘til the day after Halloween to pick up heavily discounted decorative skulls at all the local party stores!)
