feeling girly!

So, as many of you know, I am not a girly girl. Yes, you can always find me wearing skirts and dresses with pointy heels, and you'll rarely find me in pants.
Maybe it's these paperlili tops that Cristy sends over, they are so deliciously girly, glittery and sparkly.
Or maybe it's the long-awaited Chicago Springtime that seems to have arrived early this year :D

Either way, your next courtneycourtney dress may have ruffles!
All the frills you can expect from my creations. Enjoy!

collaboration: From C to Z !!!


Oh, the magic that happens when creative minds come together. I am not sure exactly when me and Julie of Zozobugbaby came up with this concept. Somewhere in the flurry of all our emails and messages,
packages of fabrics that we find and ship back and forth for each other, I shipped Julie the makings of a staple style from courtneycourtney's designs: the flutter sleeve.
She completed the look, and in unabashedly zozobugbaby + courtneycourtney fashion: voilĂ !! Off to Pascale Wowak and her beautiful little model and our beloved muse, Ellie, they go!
The perfect combination of practical, sweet, whimsical and unique. As most of you know, each piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Careful attention is given to each dress as they are assembled beginning in

Chicago and completed in Salem, Oregon. Truly, well-traveled pieces that combine the sweetness and joy we intend for the lucky little girls wearing our dresses, to live in everyday.

It makes my spirit so happy to be able to bring to life our designs to share with you and your little ones.
I look forward to sharing more designs and collaborations like this, thank you for your support. And

THANK YOU Julie and Pascale, always a pleasure to practice amongst truly creative, strong and supportive women. Now enjoy!

And yes, MORE photos to come, or check them out for yourself!
