Happy Birthday: Lea

Lovely Lea Celebrates

Hi! It's my birthday! Woo hoo! And it's beautiful out today! So I donned our birthday girl finery and headed out for a photo shoot.

The Shoot

Xyra's Extras

  • Today is Lea Silverleaf's birthday. You can see her factoids for more information. Lea Clark's birthday is August 14, 2005.
  • The featured outfit was added to Melody's wardrobe in 2005 and has been worn several times. The original box code is GBOM and listed as Birthday Girl Dress even though it is an outfit of separates. The entire outfit consists of long sleeve graphic tee, lavender layered skirt, sandals, tiara, bracelet, and book.
  • Lea was kind enough to let me show you the difference in waist size. The skirt sits low on her hips while it is snug to Melody's true waist. I can easily fit my finger between the waistband of the skirt and Lea's body. The left sandal kept falling off too.
  • If you like this outfit and are lucky enough to find one with the tiara OR if you have this outfit and your tiara is looking a bit distressed. Fear not! A jewelry polishing cloth will take if from dingy to sparkling again in no time. Here are a couple before and after photos. Just be gentle with the comb part; mine wiggles and might need the touch of a soldering iron.

Do you have a favorite photo from my shoot? Let me know in a comment.

Tchau! Até mais tarde!
