Sorry, this giveaway has ended...
I know I've been hinting at giving away this dress since the day that we won it from Nicole Benitez Photography last year. The dress was a size 3-4T and, although Boo is only 4, she's never been one to err on the "small" side for her age. So I wasn't sure it was going to fit when it arrived. Thankfully it did....Barely! We didn't really get a chance to use it all that much, mostly because she was sick when it first arrived, and most recently because, well, she didn't want to wear it! Yep, that's my girl, tomboy through-and-through! However, after muddling through a short photo session of complaining that "there were too many feathers," "it's scratchy," and "where are my pants!" we did manage to obtain a nice selection of photos for us to keep, and a few to post here on the blog for you to see the dress and accompanying accessories.
Above is a photo of the headpiece. It's a full headband, which I actually found a little small, especially trying to get it over Boo's awesome afro, but we made it work!
This is what the dress looks like (below). It's fully lined, and has a zipper as well as a tie in the back. It also has a matching broach that can be repined in various locations, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
It also comes with a bolero jacket (you can repin the broach onto the jacket if you want to).
The dress is trimmed in feathers (some of which have come off during use). It also has a short train in the back (pictured below).
All of that being said, this is an amazing piece of craftsmanship! As much as I would like to keep it locked away for Boo to pass down to one of her children, it just seemed like such a waste to let it go unused for so long. So instead, I've decided pass it along to one of you!
Things to note:
- THERE IS ONLY ONE SIZE! This is a 3-4T, and my 4-year-old barely fit into it. There are no other sizes.
- This is also a used item, so it's been gently worn a few times for photo sessions.
- Retail value of this entire ensemble is $230 from MelissaJane Boutique.
