Alise’s first Easter dress. We drove over 100 miles to Mississippi that Saturday to visit Helen’s Young Years. I was wading through the racks of beautiful dresses and BAM! There is was! It and about four other dresses (two of which – and I remember this for a fact – that her Daddy picked out). Yeah, that was one of many “splurge days.” Check out the original post here.
The first time I saw this dress, I loved it! Actually, this was the dress that I wanted Alise to wear for her first Easter, but it didn’t come in the smaller size. So imagine my surprise when I was able to buy this dress on sale later in the season for the following year! So far, this is my favorite Easter dress for Alise, but it wasn’t her favorite by any means! Much to my disappointment, she complained that it “itched” and so she didn’t wear it quite often enough. I still have this dress and it's matching sweater tucked away in tissue paper.
.Lavender again. I’m not quite sure why I actually chose this dress for Alise, but I think maybe it was because it resembled the previous years dress so much. I loved the sleeveless look on her when she was younger. This dress was definitely the least expensive of all the others she wore previously. I think I got this one from Pennys.
Finally! Another color besides lavender. I bought this dress last year at a local boutique for 60% off fully expecting this to be Alise’s Easter dress this year.
Until…I found this on Ebay and fell in love!! So once again, I’m wanting her to have a lavender dress for Easter! This dress retails at Strasburg for $175! It's at a buy-now price for $69.99 and currently has two bids. It's brand new, too, and I want it SOOOO bad! I'm hoping that I will at least make $75 this weekend on my consignments at the Munchkin sale to be able to buy this dress in time for Easter. I may be making an "IOU" to myself.
Alise has another Strasburg dress that I bought last year and they wear so well. She will probably get to wear the dress again this year, so multiple years is a plus in my book. And I've seen this lavender dress in the store and I loved it the first time I saw it. Sound familiar?
