  • I think the OP wants people to share pics which sends EXTREME warning flags out. Don't share photos.

  • Mine isn't wearing a dress this year. She chose a very elegant blouse and slacks set at Burlington. It jhas lots of bling on it but it will still get much more wear than a dress.

  • Well, we were going to put her in this beautiful blue silk dress I bought for her 1/2 price at a boutique this past Summer, but at the last minute I decided to go more casual. She wore a red cord jumper w/ a panda applique on the chest, with a black and white polka dot turtleneck, white tights, black patent shoes. (you can see these items on www.gymboree.com ) The pictures turned out so nice! I'm going to have her wear the silk dress for pictures with Santa at the mall. The blue will show up nicely against Santa's red suit.

  • We had a family picture,taken by a friend with our camera , had the drugstore develop some and sent them to friends . SHe wore a white dress--she was about 2 months old. We never had "portraits" done. It is quite expensive. Our kids never had dresses for a season such as Christmas or Easter. We didn't have any portraits done of our kids.

  • My two year old is wearing an off-white lacey skirt, and off white shirt and a red sweater, with red shoes. I couldn't find a dress I liked this year.
