Dressed To Impress {GIVEAWAY}

I want to share a quote from William Allen Butler's "Nothing to Wear" which sums up how I feel about one of my favorite fashion pieces:
Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in.
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
In case you couldn't tell from that, I love dresses.  A lot.  And not only do I love them for myself, I adore them for Gabrielle and Alaina.  One of the most fun things about having daughters is dressing them up in fabulous frocks, and now that my little ladies are finally walking, dresses look that much better on them.  With the weather warming up now, it's truly a rare day when they're sporting shorts or gasp!  Pants.  So when I stumbled upon the delightful designs at Faith Works 4 U, I thought I'd died and gone to little girls' dress shopping heaven.  Think I'm exaggerating?  Just take a look at this retro number :


Is that not the cutest thing you've ever seen?  I die.  Just die!  And there are lots more great get ups where that came from. Gabrielle and Alaina would look so sweet in these coordinating bib dresses.


I love the little bow and the funky neckline on this A-line design. 


And talk about turning lemons into lemonade!  This is the perfect ensemble for any summer picnic.


I'm a sucker for wrap dresses for me so of course I feel for this lightweight denim miniature version.


And I think the grosgrain trim on this little shift is sheer perfection.


All of the designs from Faith Works 4 U are handmade, come in sizes from 6 months up to 8 and most can be customized or ordered in a variety of fabrics which is very dangerous for a dress-obsessive like me.  I've already got four in my cart and I'm debating two more.  Paging Dr. Drew!  I think it's time for a shopping intervention!


But you might get the chance to shop guilt free because Faith from Faith Works 4 U (get it?  So cute!) has generously offered to give away one dress from her store to a lucky AFOMFT reader!  To enter, visit Faith Works 4 U and post a comment here telling me which design you'll choose if you win (this is mandatory).  For additional entries:
