Suitcase Friends: Guest Post by Maria Elyse

Hello lovely readers of The Littlest Polly! My name's Maria Elyse, from First Impressions! I'm so excited to be here guest posting for Polly! 
I live down the road from a gorgeous lake; I love it on cloudy, crisp, windy days when the sky is grey and the waves reach for the clouds and then tumble back down. I also love Peter Pan, coffee, peanut butter, opera, foxes and swans, writing novels, stories, and poems, and going on adventures. Over the past couple years I've gotten more and more into shopping at thrift stores, which also drew me to a love of vintage clothing and antiques. Really, I always have loved antiques since I was very young, thanks to my Grandma Audrey and her fantastically beautiful collection of antiques all over every inch of her house.
For those of you who are die-hard Littlest Polly readers, you know that Polly absolutely adores vintage suitcases! I just found this gorgeous one a week or two ago at an amazing antique shop. Every time I see it in my room I instantly think, "Polly!" So of course it had to be in this guest post. And I even made my own little bowtie with a vintage scarf! 'Cause Polly loves bow ties, too! ♥
I bought this dress at Target earlier this summer, and it is so Audrey Hepburn. Every time I wear it I feel like I'm in Breakfast at Tiffany's or something, haha. Even if my hair is dirty, or I'm having a bad day, or if I just wear it for an hour. It just has that instant Audrey effect. Love it. Oh, and it has pockets. It's like the amazing turn-into-Audrey-Hepburn-dress-with-pockets. Win? Yes.
I hope you all are having a lovely day! Thanks for having me, Polly! xo Maria Elyse
