Isn't that dress gorgeous? Elegant feminine sleeves, attached crinoline, satin lined bonnet. I can gush about it because I didn't pick it but rather was gifted it by a sweet SIL who's super savvy shopping skills provided my little one with a dress fit for a princess. Doesn't she have excellent taste?
The story goes, about 5 years ago, she was walking through a discount clothing store when she spied this beautiful dress for a ridiculously reasonable price. Thinking that surely she could find someone to use it, she bought it and offered it to the first SIL expecting a girl (not me). That SIL already had a dress coming from Rome and didn't need it. She offered it to the next sister to be expecting a girl (not me) and that sister too said she already had a gown for her little one. So this one continued to sit untouched. When finally there was another niece expected, she offered it to that SIL (ME!) and I said, "Well, can I see it first?"
I did... and then I didn't give it back.
