These would be the shoes that I needed to match a pair of custom earrings to for Miss Taylor Hines... Tashia's daughter.
Taylor and Tashia invited us over a fe weeks ago to a preview party for her upcoming Rush at LSU.
Bet you can't guess who that is in those taupe pumps! Hint: she's 5 years old!
Taylor had five or so days that she had to fill wiht her best options from her closet. We were there to provide moral support.
Cindy came down to help make the decisions, as did me, Paula and Lori.
I loved this little red dress. But, can you see the TRUE secret admirer in the background?
She's watching Taylor's every move.... into the room. Out of the room. Ellie was SO in her element.
AND SHE'S OFF! She is heading in there to see what outfit is coming up next.
Where's Gabs, you might be asking. Well, here she is. She is on the floor, where Tashia made her a pallet. This would be the stash that Taylor had stockpiled to take with her to Baton Rouge where she began as a freshman in August.
Tashia even put on a movie for my girl. We already have all their VHS tapes, as I knew Tashia would very likely never watch the Disney movies anymore, so I asked her if we could have them. And she said, "sure". I like them because they don't "scratch" like the DVDs do.
This is Taylor's room. I remember when I moved out. I moved, like EVERYTHING out. Like I would never be home again. I think Taylor may have the same philosophy.
And on to the initiation dress. Ellie is still sticking to Taylor like glue.
Paula never left her Snuggie.
Lori has years of experience in retail and in fashion, so she was a natural choice for Tashia to invite over. Look at that accessory bag. We were getting those outfits down to the details.
And so we finally got it down to a few of the best ones. Dresses, shoes, accessories... IT IS FINISHED.
And so, we had appetizers! :)
And my Gabbi Girl woke up just in time to partake!
For the record... Taylor is now a Pi Phi at LSU.
Good times with good friends.
