Also I got a new cardboard backdrop so I'm experimenting with that! Hopefully the pictures are looking okay.
And now for today's clothing post! We are going to talk about Cecile and Marie-Grace's Fancy Dress and Fairy Costume Accessories!
Here is the whole outfit on Marie-Grace:
First let's talk about the dress:
Here is the front and the back:
They did use the nice velcro for this dress but it can still catch:
Here are a few detail shots:
The dress comes with blue, satin dancing slippers; decorated with another pink rosette.
Next up are the Fairy Costume Accessories:
The wings are made of a glittery fabric.
It hooks into that long pink part right there on the back of the dress:
The gloves her elbow length. I think they are made of the same glittery fabric as the wings? If not it's pretty darn close. They even have the same blue and green stripes.
The best part of this accessory set is the mask:
The mask is heavily decorated.
Each spike of the "crown" is decorated with a pink ball.
The other side is unpainted:
Now I've heard a lot of criticism about this outfit. Primarily about the colors (I hear this a lot about Cecile's summer dress too.) But I personally LOVE them and I'm going to explain why.
If you've ever been to the French Quarter in New Orleans you will see all sorts of colors on the buildings. It's almost blinding at times. There are yellow buildings with green trim and pink buildings with blue trim and and peach buildings and bright green buildings!

Here are a couple extra pictures:
I am really glad that I got these dresses before they disappeared! I think they were very worth it especially since I got the dresses and the accessories on sale. The girls look lovely and I enjoy a fancy dress every now and then. I'm not really sure how well this set would hold up to a child. I was being very careful and ended up getting the dress caught on the velcro anyway. Plus the shoes are pretty difficult to get on. I think if you want to keep this dress looking nice and adult should help.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more in the next couple of weeks. Till then!
