  • Good one. You can even see the creases where it was folded into a small square to be mailed.

  • What catches my eye first is the colors, the blue print and taupe gown the white on white embroidery and then the pop of color which looks more orange than red to me. Plus he hair ornament is also a pop of almost but not really red. I love the color combination very much.
