There are certain things I'??ve become Zen with. Target is no place for a cocktail dress. Tumble class is no place for sequins. Wearing a boa to the playground will only get me looks. The wrong kind of looks.
Sometimes you have diva in your heart but your outfit must remain relaxed. Sigh.
Lotty Dotty is the perfect way to channel your inner fashionista while still keeping things casual. This Paris-based clothing company recently introduced the cutest interactive tees, which allow girls (and moms'?¦OK, all ladies for that matter) to play dress up while dressing down.
Each of their T-shirts boast a Velcro bikini clad '??paper doll.'? Pick your playmate'?¦women choose Talia, Katia, Nikki, Scarlett and Zara; girls have Zoe, Mimi, Maya, Lia and Lola. The shirt'??s original outfit is a simple bow dress for ladies and a tutu dress for girls, but you can change her clothes to suit your mood by ordering different ensembles.

Can'??t rock your sequined shorts at the park? Lunch with the kids at Panera no place for lace? Just dress up your '??paper doll'? and there'??s your outfit outlet when the real world doesn'??t call for such extravagance. Personally, I'??m looking forward to the Fall/Winter 2012 accessory line, full of capes, fur hats and purses.
Each doll outfit is handmade in Paris, and the 100% organic cotton tees are super comfortable. They'??re also gentle to the Earth, being manufactured using green energy from wind and solar power.
Another aspect I really liked was that Lotty Dotty works with young, talented designers who don't have another platform to showcase or display their work. So you almost feel like you're wearing little bits of never-before-seen art.
This is definitely a way to put a oui bit of fashion into your daily routine.
The Lotty Dotty T-shirt is available at lottydotty.com in Women'??s ($75) and Children'??s ($50). Additional outfits range from $20-$30.
