Blessing Dress!

I've made it known to everyone on Facebook the first of this month that I've already been in search of a blessing dress for our little girl's baby blessing. I figured it'd take me a good 3-4 months to find exactly what I wanted. Ian and I are pretty particular when it comes to fashion for our soon to be little one. I made it clear that a looong traditional dress with puffy sleeves just wasn't going to cut it for me. I'd prefer something short, puffy and tutu like. When Ian and I went to Bako this past weekend I got my blessing dress from my mom. It is short and pretty cute, just not what I've been hoping for.
So last night Gardner Village was having a Moonlight Madness Sale. Each shop had some sort of sale going on. We went into the little girl and baby shops and found the cutest blessing dress! It was the only one like it, and the only one that didn't look traditional. Plus it was 35% off!! There was only one downside, it's spaghetti strap. Ian insisted that our little girl wasn't going to be born into dressing like a slut. I had to talk him into it, letting him know we can always alter the straps or have someone sew together a short sleeve cover up. He finally agreed to it and I'm soo so so so excited! It's the cutest dress ever :)
Now that I found the dress 3 months sooner than I thought I would... we've got a lot of waiting to do before we can put a baby in it! ha! At least some alterations will keep me busy with it :)


  1. I LOVE that her first prom dress is really her blessing dress! She is going to be one stylin' little girl!

  2. Hah well that's one fancy prom dress! Looks more like a wedding dress to me, but so do the fancy traditional long blessing dresses.
