Cute ....really cute ! Poor kid. I remember those days shopping with my mom and older sister ( she is 8 yrs older than me ) ....we used to go to every dress shop in town every single Saturday ! My younger sis & I just took it in stride, along with our coloring books. It took our "big " sis at least 6 hours to find that special dress each Saturday for her date that same night ! LOL !
