Friday Photo Flashback

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to link up so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

2003

Once upon  a time,  I was hooked (obsessed) with Ebay! I remember looking for deals on Ralph Lauren dresses, and high end boutique brands for my little girl. Then one thing led to another. The more I searched and searched, I wound up stumbling upon "Custom Handmade Clothing." Oh my! It was like another world had opened up for me! I saw all these original custom outfits, beautiful fabrics, and GIRLY GIRL designs that I absolutely fell in love with! If that wasn't enough, there were bow makers that could custom make bows to match any outfit, plus, you also had to have custom bracelets/necklaces, and then finish it off with the perfect shoes! Oh, and God forbid if my daughter wore that outfit twice! But, the good thing was that I could resell that outfit on Ebay, and buy more. Well, that's how I justified buying more and more clothes and accessories for her. The postman was my BFF at the time!!

Well, with that said, this is the FIRST custom outfit I got for Veronica. Oh my...I was so giddy when it came in the mail! I treated it as if it were a piece of gold. I know..looking back, I was so psycho! I could now understand how pageant moms get so fanatic!

All I could say is that thank goodness that it doesn't look so "cute" after a certain age, and that I am so over that phase!! However, she was always known as the best dressed girl with the big bows!!!!!
