Easter Dress Hunting


These are pics from last week, when I got to spend a fun afternoon shopping with our oldest daughter, Michelle.   We had a great day and were successful in crossing every single pre-Easter essential off our list, but the most fun  of course  was the dress shopping!  I already had an Easter outfit, and all the little girls were set, so the annual hunt was on for Michelle.  But, St. Anthony was with us and it didn't take long before she found a dress style she really liked (at Ross, as it turned out) -- but it came in several different patterns and colors and she had a time choosing from amongst them!  We had my trusty camera along, though, so I took pictures as she tried each one on.  Seeing them through the "objective" eye of the lens helped a lot! 

Which dress do you like best?  Which one do you think she picked?

See the combox to find out what she wore to Easter Mass!
And run over to Cheryl's for a choice of Easter Makes-My-Mondays to peruse!

First of all I must say how wonderful!!! And secondly, your daughter is just gorgeous and looked great in every dress.

BUT...my guess is #3! So bright and springy! But regardless, I'm sure looked beautiful in whichever dress she picked!

Easter HUGS!!!

From Lisa: We both really liked the first one, the black and white pattern. But we thought the white one, #2, which was eyelette (which I love, traditionally) made her look too pale. We liked both #4 and #5, and their delicate tiny floral pattern, but we thought the light blue one made her look pale, too. So the end decision was between the light pink tiny floral and the bright pink, big flower dress. The tie-breaker was that the light pink dress was missing its sash and it was the last one in the store. The brighter pink, larger floral was the winner.

My favorite was the black and white, but she looks gorgeous in all of them! So nice to go out for a little retail time with your biggest girl :)

I liked #1 and #4 the best, but think #4 is the most appropriate for Easter, none of the black. Am I right?

Ranee @ Arabian Knits said...

Oh, wait, is #3 or #4 the bright floral? The bright floral is the one I was thinking.
