Okay, it’s 3 days before Lola’s Sweetheart Ball with her daddy, and I have bought several dresses for her, and narrowed it down to two:
1. Luna Luna Pirouette Top and Tutu: Love this, but the tutu is still a tiny bit long, so I might save it for next year. The tutu I have is a deep purple color. link
2. Halabaloo Pink Rosette Dress: I can’t find a picture of this dress anywhere, but it’s a pink tulle dress, empire style, covered wtih pink rosettes. It’s sleeveless.
Now I am trying to find accessories, which is very hard to do locally, and since I didn’t plan ahead for this part, I am going to need to find shoes, a hair accessory or two, and a wrap or cardigan within driving distance, or possibly overnight shipping distance, if I can find something fabulous online. It’s hard to pick accessories when you haven’t decided on the dress. So I have two looks that I am trying to pull together:
Luna Luna Look: I think gold shoes or black shoes with the cream-beige of the top, and possibly a golden ribbon in her hair or gold hair accessory of some kind. Her gold shoes are too casual, so I think her Kid Express black patent leather mary janes will have to do unless I find something better.
Halabaloo Look: This dress is over the top, so I think I would like to do a simple pink ribbon as a headband in her hair, but how to attach it to her slippery locks. I’ve also bought two pairs of sparkly shoes, on impulse, at Target, of all places. I bought them in pink and white. Target isn’t usually my first choice for dress shoes, but it is literally the only place I can buy them in this line. Hence, my obsession with online shopping. But they are pretty cute: link
