One Dress – Three Halloween Costumes

With a fairly basic black dress, there are endless ideas for costume and dress-up! We’ve taken our Wednesday Addams inspired dress and styled it up 3 different ways.

  1. Wednesday Addams

2. Cruella Deville

Such a fun costume for Halloween. We’ve had this wig since last Halloween and it has held up so nicely!

4. Audrey Hepburn, or a Fancy Movie Star?

Dress Your Family Like McQueen!

I love that its “cool” now to coordinate your family outfits. When I was little and my family went to a theme park, my parents would make us wear matching t-shirts. I remember one that had a hand print and said “hands off”. There’s 7 people in my family and we were quite the site walking around the park. I didn’t feel so cool haha.

Now, it’s super fun to plan matching outfits for Disney trips, or birthday parties or Halloween costumes. I love the idea of coordinating the family based on the movie “Cars”.

So here’s a fun family McQueen look:

Women’s dress: Torrid

Children’s Dress: Taylor Joelle

Children’s Shirt: Taylor Joelle

Men’s Tee: Kohls

Stairs Makeover

We’ve slowly been redoing our home, and so happy to finally have the stairs made over. The railing will eventually change, but that isn’t a priority for us yet.

We used cedar fence material (and white washed it) for the wall. We showed a picture to our contractor of the style staircase we love, and he stained the wood to match our flooring. The white is particle board.

Here’s the scary before picture:

Master Bedroom Progress – Modern Farmhouse Style.

We have had so much fun renovating our home this year! I wish I had of taken “before” pictures of our master bedroom (ugly old carpet, no trim, and “boob” lights). We’ve knocked out a few walls, and it’s no so airy and open!

We still need some more art up on the walls, a rug, and possibly an accent chair, but here’s the progress. I will link the products at the bottom of this page. Some links may be affiliate links that I earn commission from.

We had the bed custom and storage benches made custom. The bench opens up so we can use it for storage.
Our previous TV was pretty bulky and black. We were going to wait until Christmas to purchase this Samsung Frame TV, but caved since it looks so nice in this room! When it’s not playing the TV, it’s art (you can select from several art styles). We bought the beige frame for this TV separately.
We purchased the frames from IKEA and my mom Diane Robison helped create the art.

Bedding: Opal House at Target.

Baskets: Amazon

Flooring: Wayfair

Trim: Cedar plank fencing (white washed)

TV: Amazon

TV Frame: Amazon

Picture Frames: Ikea

Madeline – A Simple Book Character Costume

I love a good versatile children’s dress. This one can be so many things!

  1. A school uniform dress (the bow is removable)
  2. A dress for book character day at school – Madeline
  3. A Halloween costume. How cool would it be to have a group of matching Madelines trick or treating!?
  4. Sailor Moon outfit?
  5. Donald Duck?

Any more you can think of? This is fun! Dress coming to Taylor Joelle in July 2020

Hat – from etsy

Shoes – Freshly Picked

Another Epic Puppy Party!

We’ve seen a lot of adorable puppy parties, but this one has a twist! A party for YOUR puppy! Cute Ziggy turned 1! His mamma @blyssphotography did the most adorable puppy party for him! So excited that our Puppy 2.0 dress was included (ziggy is one of the pups on the dress!)

Our friend @janburgard created the adorable puppy cookies using Taylor Joelle cookie cutters, She does a wonderful job carefully packaging and shipping the cookies.

My mom, Diane Robison, does adorable party printables to match the dress.

The adorable party hats are from @littleblueolvie  and the ball garland is from @peaberrystudio

We’ve got shirts to match the puppy dress here

Can’t wait to see puppy puppy parties!! Thanks so much Blyss Photography for sharing this one with us!

So Many Ways to Be (or Dress) Wicked

We are gearing up for Halloween, and so excited to bring you Descendants inspired dresses!  These Dresses will be available at Taylor Joelle middle of September.   They are inspired by Mal and Evie.  You can dress them up for a Halloween Mal or Evie Costume,  a Descendants party, or you can simply wear them to school and everyday activities.  They are comfortable, and not too costumey (unless you add the accessories of course).


As we were prepping for our photo shoot, we found some awesome props that I thought we’d share with you.

Evie Outfit:

  • Wig – Amazon
  • Red Jacket – Amazon
  • Red Gloves – Amazon
  • Shoes – We used some inexpensive ones off amazon, but I don’t recommend them.  They were flimsy and fell apart quickly.  Here’s some that look nice – Mila Lady 

Mal Outfit:

  • Wig – Amazon
  • Descendants Brand Jacket – Amazon
  • Shoes – Amazon  Or if she has a pair of Dr. Martens boots, those would be awesome!
  • Descendants Brand Necklace – Amazon
  • Gloves – Don’t buy the Descendants Mal Brand.  They were very long and narrow.  Any black fingerless gloves should do.

Cohen’s Carlos shirt is from the Disney Store



Here’s a few photos without all the accessories.  As you can see, they make a great everyday dress too!

Snow White Inspired Dress

Are you looking for an outfit for your little girl to wear on your next Disney Trip?  How fun is this Snow White inspired dress?  It super comfortable, so she won’t feel itchy or uncomfortable during a long day at Disney.

Not going to Disneyland?  This dress has so many options:

  • Back to School
  • Snow White Halloween Costume
  • Princess Birthday Party Dress
  • Dress-up

Or simply, a new fun dress to add to her closet.  These launch in September at Taylor Joelle!

Is it Dress Up? You Decide!

We are so excited about our Character Collection at Taylor Joelle Designs 

Our purpose in these dresses is to make ultra comfortable princess dresses that aren’t too “dress-upy” to wear out of the house.   Typical dress-up never seems to last too long.  These wash well, and can be worn over and over again.

If you are planning a princess birthday party, a Halloween costume, or a Disney vacation outfit, these will be perfect!  They can be worn for that special occasion, plus hold up for everyday use!

Here’s what’s hitting the site August 15th (plus a couple more).


Here’s a closer look!

  1.  The Rapunzel inspired dress.  There’s tiny suns on the bodice.  Isn’t this braid epic?  Tutorial coming soon!


2.  The Ariel Inspired Dress.  Much more comfortable than a mermaid tail.

4.  Anna and Elsa inspired dresses.  Great timing since Frozen 2 is coming soon!


Next up will be our Moana, Belle, Snow White, and Jasmine inspired dresses.  We should have them available by September so you can plan your Halloween costumes!
