Talk about a sneak attack... when I first saw this dress I was so wowed by the bright colors (I am a sucker for red) and gorgeous flowers. Then I saw the material that it is made of: VELOUR. Eeek! Ahh!! Why??? There was so much potential. I am trying to be rational and not let me distaste (to put it lightly) for velour completely ruin the dress for me... Maybe it would work as a holiday dress? There is also something about the collar area that I am not liking. This seems like a lost cause. If you disagree, visit Children Salon, where this can be yours for $254.00.
