Gorgeous!I especially love "What Katie Did" and was thinking to ordering two from them, but was not really sure. After looking at this post.I think i am ready to make place my order. Very inspiring, thank you.

Madeleine said...

Oh, I am the first.
Well first good morning sweetie, hope you have a delicious day.

My favorite is actually the pink Faire Frou Frou, it is sexy yet a woman can wear it. I like some of the others but will leave them for the teen or younger set.
