We came upon these dresses that I bought her at Target. It is hard to find dresses that fit her. She is so tall and skinny, but her legs are so long! I can get something that is her size, but looks so short and immodest because her legs are so long. If I go up a size, it is too baggy and falls off.
These are both problems.
I bought these dresses thinking they were perfect, not as fancy as she would like, but she could even wear them to school, because they weren't fancy.
She has worn them only a couple of times and I asked her why, assuming it was on the account that they weren't fancy enough, but her answer to me:
"They are too frumpy."
That was a laugh.
We decided to go on a mother daughter date to find her a suitable dress.
"High-heeled shoes" were also a planned purchase.
That girl was too funny to shop with! She is like a little butterfly, flitting here and there, to every rack and dress in the store. She would walk on her heels and snap her fingers.. you could see the over-stimulation in her eyes.
She was in fancy heaven!
We settled on a dress and hunted down the perfect shoes.
Coming home and showing off her finds only motivated Ashley more (who was already upset that we were leaving without her to buy a new dress..) to book our date together.
Ashley was just as much fun to shop with, but she knew what she was going after both shoe and dress wise.
She picked out her "fancy dress" and even got a bonus in a matching dress for her American Girl doll. She is thrilled with her shoes and wants to wear them everywhere!I just loved having the one on one time with each of them.
Couldn't leave out little Pey...
I bought this dress for her, she had no complaints. ;)
