So the story of how we came to have matching Christmas dresses. Beatrice’s dress was worn by both Greta and Eloise for their first Christmas. Even though this is actually Beatrice’s second Christmas, the dress clearly wouldn’t have fit her last year and she didn’t even have a dress for her first Christmas. Our dear friends happened to have the same dress in a size 3T, which would fit Eloise perfectly this year. So, all I had to do was find it in Greta’s size (5T). Only problem is this is a gymboree dress from when Greta was a baby, so 5 years old. I stalked ebay for probably a month or two and FINALLY found someone offering the dress in a 5T and it was even new with tags. Rather than hope for to be the highest bidder, I asked if they would let me do a buy it now and they did, and for a reasonable price, I think $24 including shipping. The dress is a 100% silk dress and new was I think at least $50, so definitely reasonable.
So this year we had matching dresses. We didn’t have time to take pictures before Christmas Eve mass, so we put them on again on Christmas day and took some pictures without tights, sweaters, or shoes.
And one of just Beatrice since we have pictures of the other two in this dress. Beatrice is 12 months old.
Here is Eloise at her first Christmas at 10 months.
And Greta at 7 months old on her first Christmas.
