What's Your Favorite...

What is your favorite outfit??? That's our challenge at WhatIsYourFaveThing. When I was a little girl I remember having a baby pink dotted-swiss dress with a white collar and little pink roses on it. I loved that dress. Isn't it funny how you can remember the simplest things from when you were a kid... I can even remember how excited I was when I saw it for the first time... I couldn't wait to put it on. So, I searched high and low for a picture with me in it and was disappointed when realized I didn't have any! But I still remember that dress, I have a picture of it in my mind and for me it will always be the most beautiful dress ever.

Since I didn't have a picture of me in that dress, I started going through my closet. I found several favorites... like... my Harley boots with a blue jean skirt... my beautiful flapper-inspired beaded wedding dress... then there's all my leather jackets, which go with everything... & how could I forget my favorite comfy 1980's sweatshirt! But nothing said scrap me.

Then I thought about the favorite outfits I have for Rainee... you know the ones you save for your kids, hoping one day they'll use them for their kids. I went through all of them... and there is was... the dress I bought for her first birthday pictures!!! This dress is my all time favorite!!! I looked months for this dress... I knew exactly what I wanted... I had almost gave up... but one day, there I was in the mall getting a haircut and decided to try Nordstroms one last time... after looking everywhere, I thought why not try one more time... it can't hurt... then I saw it... it was in the clearance rack... the dress of my dreams for my little Rainee. I can't tell you how happy I was... I was over the moon!!!

For her first birthday pictures we went to the St. Regis Hotel in Dana Point.... this place is amazing... the day was perfect... and Rainee looked so beautiful in her lovely little dress... I was so happy... and the pictures turned out better than I could have ever dreamed!!

Now when I think of a favorite outfit... the only two that come to mind are my pink dotted swiss dress and Rainee in her first birthday dress! It also reminds me, that if there's a favorite outfit Rainee likes... I should really get a picture of her in... so she can have it to remember. Memories are wonderful... but a picture is so much better.

So, what is your favorite outfit???? We'd love to see what your favorite is!!! Remember you can show it off on a card, a scrapbook layout or any kind of project you'd like... share it with all of us at WhatIsYourFaveThing... don't forget the winner receives a fabulous prize!!! I can't wait to see what your favorite is!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a lovely day!!!
