Happy St. Patrick's Day a day early for you to enjoy! Today I am featuring a great outfit from La Sweet Belle Boutique Collection on Etsy. I love this outfit and wanted to share with you. Etsy has some really great doll items that are hand crafted and lovingly made. The people who make these outfits make them with love and make next to nothing for their work. I really like the variety of outfits available on Etsy and hope that you will check out Etsy and see the different vendors and items you can find that are just perfect for the doll in your life.
