I remembered a bridal shop that had some modest dresses back in 2006 when the Drama Queen needed a formal, so we headed there first. Princess was out of school for the day because of Parent/Teacher Conferences and of course Teach wanted to get in on the fun, so she joined us. Just as we were heading out the door, Baby Doll grabbed her toy cell phone and "purse" (which is really a lunch box) and asked for her shoes.
First I told her "no," but she was so sad, I told her to ask Princess. Well, Princess couldn't resist that sweet little face, so we became a party of four. We drove to Frenze up in Midvale. That store was total chaos! At first we couldn't find anything. Imagine a store where all the dresses are arranged by color, not size. Most of their stuff was pretty immodest for Princess's tastes, but we finally grabbed a couple and sent her to the dressing room.

Baby Doll LOVES new clothes! She looked so cute in the little white dress that I had to physically restrain her from removing the tags so we could take it home. We didn't buy it of course. How impractical is a white dress like that on a little one, unless it's a wedding party? Princess, on the other hand, tried on half a dozen dresses trying to find just the right one. As it turned out, we bought the first one (at half price!) that she tried on.
