We go to Aruba next month and I am hoping to take my girls Holiday photo there. Anyway does anyone have any white, red OR green sundresses they are willing to sell in a 4T? (I have twins and need two).
I have serached the internet endlessly and find nothing this time of year.
Any help would be appreciated.

You haven't found anything on ebay? My wife sells the kids clothes on there sometimes, only the name brand barely worn stuff. I will ask her if we have any 4t dresses. Do you need 2 or just one?

I just re-read and see you need 2. I would only be able to come up with one. Do you want them to match?

i have an idea
there are plenty of shops on island that have cute kids' summer stuff!!

there are a few department stores that i know of.....LaLindas is downtown not far from the bus station back one block and then towards the center of downtown about a block or 2.

there is also a department store in noord. follow palm beach road til you get to the intersection near st anne's church and police station. at that intersection turn left and GISELLES department store is on your left after caribbean palmm village. (i think the name is giselles)

also too all of the resort gift shops sell little girl "stuff" sun dresses, hats, beach cover ups, bathing suits etc....

also too check with a couple of our aruba resident members that have little girls private message them jojo angela munzenhofer and photosbyjulia they will be able to give you suggestions on which stores have best selection and prices.

Wow you all just blew me away! And to think I was embarrased posting this!
I am going to check into ALL your suggestions. I thank you all so very much and Andrea, I appreciate it!!

ArubaMark they don't need to match, two of the same color would be nice though. :)

Hi Jenn,

You will have better luck finding what you want in the US, but in the same time you should get lucky right here in Aruba. All of the resorts have island-wear for children, then you always have Benetton for children in Downtown and an entire mainstreet of shops that have little girl dresses. There are several stores on the mainstreet that sell only white sundresses in all sizes. So, I can at least guarantee that you will find matching white dresses.

Regards, Julia

Here's an idea...leave them in their swimsuits and stick Santa hats on them in the sand...Write in the sand Merry Christmas....

I vote for a dressy outfit photo and a fun one in swimsuits with Santa hats and reindeer antlers. We did the kids in their swimsuits last winter in a snowstorm, laying in the snow with Santa hats, looked like seals playing on the ice. Then in the hot tub with the Santa hats. They were the hit of the Christmas card photos, everyone loved them. Hubby and I did ours with cocktails in the hot tub.

Be sure to post the photo once you return.

Oh and I found a friend too (Thanks to this post!)

You know? lol
Andrea you could have? And you didn't tell me? Ahhh!

not me, i don't sew, but am thinking of learning!

i was thinking of cindy o
she is our resident seamstress, 'cept she is so busy with her 2 daughters that she does not know if she is on "foot or horseback"

i am glad that the dress thing is settled.
now what else is there to worry about and solve on your aruba list?
we are here, to get you there!
