Ellie turns 4

Every year for Ellie's birthday I love to do a special photo shoot, especially because she's still too young to fight me on outfits. I didn't have a sister, so I dress so I make my kid dress like me, its amazing. Anyways, this year I had come across this amazing dress from Rent the Runway, the Badgley Mischka Blush Sequin Off Should Gown. I knew I had to wear it, so I went on the hunt to a matching dress for Ellie.  Long story short comes in Blush, which is more of a rose gold, and then an actual gold color.  Badgley Mischka makes about a half of dozen different styles and RTR only carries certain styles in each color, so the style I wanted was only in Blush.  The dress runs a little short, I ended up wearing the Long, considering at 5'5 I'm not tall. * Follow that link above for $30 off your first rental!*

I searched all over the internet and ended up taking a chance on the Amazon dress below.  I ordered the Champagne color, it was not a "perfect" match but I did love the way they looked together, and it photographed beautifully in the golden hour.  Ellie wears a 5T and I order a 5T and it fit great.  I could not get over the quality of the dress for the price.

I have to add I have the best friend, who happens to be an amazing photographer, Jennifer Grant, who jumped on my idea of formal gowns, outside, at sunset.  Any fellow bloggers need amazing house photos in Metro Detroit, you need to have her come photograph your house!  (Also if your moving, trust me it makes a huge difference...more on that later)
