There is something special about a girl in her birthday dress.  And my beautiful friend Juli is the perfect example.  I spend my days in a dress shop, most of the girls who come in looking for a specific dress for a wedding or special event can be so stressed out.   So when I assist someone who gets to choose her favourite colour and style there is a spark in the change room.  It's just so much fun to see bright printed maxi's, sparkly sequin party dresses and floral sundresses and so tough to pick just one.  Juli choose this long flowing maxi dress with an elastic waist and key-hole neck line.  This dress has pops of bright coral and neon pink in the floral print, it's one of the most popular styles in our Farminista collection.

Playing dress up begins at age 5 & never truly ends.

Today was even more special as Juli's Mom, sister and niece took her shopping and bought the best dress for her!

Birthday lunch was next for us, after working up an appetite shopping,  we felt a little french pastry shop would be the perfect place to treat the birthday girl.  Little Bird Patisserie just opened in our city, it's the first of its kind here and it's full of french macarons, pan au chocolat,  and other special treats.
