Here comes the tooth fairy, sporting a new item from the Fairies 2010 Spring Workwear Collection. The fairy's fuchsia bodysuit is covered with a long flowy chiffon skirt in purple, indigo and gold. The skirt is accessorized with a cheerful gold butterfly at the centre of the waistline. Our famous fairy is sporting a plastic halo of artificial daisies and lilies. Her pink designer tights are slightly worn, but durable. The outfit is finished off with a pair of leather Bloche ballet slippers, perfect for tiptoeing in and out of children's rooms in the middle of the night. The entire outfit is available in size petite only and can be purchased at your local fairy boutique for approximately $100 Canadian dollars.Listen to the first track below.
