Keep Your Imagination, Sweetie

**I was sent a dress in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was exchanged.**


Early on, my daughter has always had an imagination. She has always loved to dress up in costumes.

As she's getting older, I worry her imagination will fade. Soon she might not think it's cool to create her own world. I always tell her she can keep an imagination for as long as she wants--some people earn millions with one, after all. (Stephen King, anyone?)

We were sent this gorgeous dress from an amazing site called Little Goodall. It's filled with all sorts of precious items for kids. (I squealed at their animal coats.)

This dress is their Gingham Tabitha Dress and good news for you: it's currently on sale!







Right when Natalie saw it, she gasped and went, "It's like Dorothy's dress from The Wizard of Oz. I love it! I have to pair my red shoes with it!"






The dress is gorgeous and well-made with buttons in the back and a sash.








She insisted on the braids. "Like Dorothy. I feel like I'm going on an adventure."


And she's right. She's going on an adventure of life. As she gets older, her friends have started to tell her that her costumes are babyish. That she shouldn't wear them anymore.





I remind her that she can do whatever she wants. She doesn't have to be like everyone else. She can look at a dress and be reminded of Dorothy. She can turn into Dorothy.




"I want to wear this dress forever!"





She said it was comfortable--she cannot stand itchy dresses.


I love her imagination. I love how she can look at a tree and say, "I'm pretending he's the lion. The cowardly lion. He's hilarious."





I love that she still checked to see if the dress has twirlability. When she was tiny, before I could buy a dress, she had to try it on and make sure it fluffed out around her.


I'm proud to say that this dress has amazing twirlability:





If you want a precious outfit for your little one, be sure to check out Little Goodall!

  13. What an adorable dress! As long as you keep fostering her creativity and imagination, she won't lose it. I was fortunate enough to homeschool my kids, and they are amazingly creative. My daughter is a writer and my son plays guitar. They're both in college now and still have that imaginative side to them.

  23. I'm so glad she loved it, it looks absolutely wonderful on her! Her Dorothy idea makes me think we should photograph it with a little one in one of our Lion coats. Your daughter will no doubt carry her creativity into the world with her - brilliant things ahead! -Molly

  30. This is so fantastic, because she can wear it to everyday "dressup" events but also use it to inspire her imagination! I wish I could do the same thing as a grownup.

  31. The design reminds of Butter Krust bread's packaging of loafs of bread. Not sure if that brand is in your neck of the woods. What a nice dress, your daughter looks very happy with it.

  36. I just love your daughter's spirit and her fashion sense. I don't know many little girls that would have immediately had the thought to accessorize the dress into a modern day Dorothy look, but it's adorable!

  50. Without an active imagination, life would be so boring. Your daughter looks just like Dorothy in the movie with that pretty dress. I don't think imagination and age should be connected, I think everyone should have a healthy imagination no matter what their age is.

  66. I'm so excited to see how Tristan [ my son ] will be when he gets to that age. I want him to be able to have a big imagination and have fun. Dress up in super hero costumes and just explore life as a kid. You're an amazing mama for letting your little do whatever suites her! <3
