This year we went with a black and white theme for holiday portraits. I spent countless hours on EBay searching for inexpensive outfits and I hit pay dirt. Check out the deets below.
The original dress I wanted for the girls was on Aliexpress, but because I had a two week window for ordering it was a no go. These black pickup dresses were cheap and photographed nicely.
I tried a new style for the girls hair, much to D's chagrin. I have a board on Pinterest here called "BabyGirls Hair" (https://www.pinterest.com/petiteseats/babygirls-hair/) where I pin cute, easy to do cornrow and natural hair styles for my littles. This style I did received a pack of synthetic braiding hair and hairpins. The hair was twisted, using two strands of hair. The style took less then ten minutes to do.
For me, I kept it simple with two goddess braids. Now my outfit was a steal at $31.49 from EBay vendor "alisapanus".
The skirt was a rayon-polyester blend that ironed well and fit like a glove. The top wasn't as nice a quality. There were several loose threads, but for the thirty minutes I wore the outfit it was perfect. There was a lot of sucking in my gut, but I was comfortable.
