...ooorrr not. i just felt like naming this post something 1950's-ish because of this awesome dress! if my other dresses were alive, i imagine they'd weep in it's presence because of the glory that is this 1950's handmade dress that fits me like a glove! i got this little gem about 4 years ago, and can you believe i've never worn it? i'm not kidding, i used to have such a dress phobia, and i'm still not quite sure why. i mean, i wouldn't wear this to the grocery store or post office or anything, but i can't believe it's been hanging with no lovin' for all those years. anyway, tomorrow i'm going to my aunt's wedding, and i'm ready to twirl.
please pay no attention to the awkward color. i used the timer a different way this time (taking 5 pictures at once rather than 1) and i forgot to adjust the white balance, so you see what that equals? an amateur.
anyway, i love the details of this dress! it amazes me that it was handmade, but i guess that's what women did in the 1950's. and you know what amazes me even more? i only paid $4 for it.
oh, and one really BIG thing i want to mention... you can't imagine how much i appreciate your comment on my last post about friendship. i was so scared to post it, but i'm glad we can all talk openly with one another. and speaking of friends and meeting new people, is anyone down for planning a virginia, or even mid-atlantic meet up? that would be awesome.
