Esther-palooza 2012!!

Wow!  My second-born is turning 17.  I can hardly believe it.  Esther-palooza is a month long celebration of that very fact.  It began a little early this year with Esther's prom.  Here are some picture of our beautiful vintage woman.  Check her out!

 Esther always has a very distinct idea of how she wants to look.  And she is VERY frugal.  So we had to combine both of those factors to come up with a look she was happy with!  Not an easy task.  She found a dress that would work - for $5 at a Goodwill shop.  Then she found the accessories to accomplish the look she wanted - lace gloves, a lace flower for her hair and a pearl bracelet to match her pearl necklace that her dad had given her last year.  We took the dress apart, cut off the train and about ten inches of the length, added some lace, and ta-da!!  Great vintage look.  Total cost:  $27.  

She borrowed cool peep-toe champagne patent leather heels from her aunt.  That lasted about 20 minutes - long enough to get a few shots and decide comfort was more important!!  So she pulled out her all time favorite Vans - and the look is complete.

 This is my favorite shot of the night!!  The perfect Esther photo!

Can't wait to see what else Esther-palooza brings this year.
