I can't tell you how much easier it is to photograph Lily indoors. Don't get me wrong, I still love the outdoor photos for their beautiful light and atmosphere but obviously, indoor shots have their own perks.
I told Lily that the reward for posing would be a chocolate cake. I think she was skeptical because when I opened it for the photo she had this look of surprise and glee!
I made this dress with a party in mind. It comes in three holiday colors green, silver and pink. Pink? You might say....well, I thought it could be fun for a New Year's get together and honestly, how can you 'not' make a party dress in pink?! The giveaway is for the green dress only.
They are made from a shimmery party taffeta material. Underneath the inverted pleat skirt I added a pillow of tulle to really emphasize the fullness of the bottom. The top is fitted and sleeveless.
In the end, I was really impressed with the fit and shape of the dress. I think I want one for my own New Year's Eve party. Of course, I would choose an impractical sleeveless dress to freeze off my butt all night. I just can't help but think that the look of bare arms is so feminine.
After all the photos were shot I let Lily and Molly really go at the pictured slice. I let them alone with the piece for five minutes. In those few moments they took it upon themselves to not only eat the cake but apply it like makeup, decorate the carpet with it and forgo the civility of forks instead using what tools God gave them.
If the winning blog also leaves a comment I will include the matching green headband in the photos.
I would say that this frock would fit a 3T-4T:)
Last day for posts is Wednesday 12/17/08. Winner will be announced Friday morning!
As usual, if you would like a chance to win this frock just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.
ONE MORE THING, I've decided to revisit my other blog The TumTum Tree. It will feature personal posts, interesting internet finds and the occasional TV show rant. It probably won't be updated daily but at least a few times per week.
And no, I did NOT make that cake. I bought it at Giant. You can tell it is storebought by the way it does 'not' slope to one side:)
