Distant Memories

I decided to take a few photos while playing dress up in the Betsey Johnson part of my closet a few weeks ago.  Part of me does this to see if they still fit (some do!) and the other part does it to feel pretty.  I love pretty much every dress she makes but it's not like you can wear them on the regular.  I'm partial to this one in particular.  It's so cute and sparkly!  It's the ultimate girly girl dress but I've never worn it out.  I'm hoping one day I can put this on to go to a tea party or something.  If not, it's going straight to Bianca when she gets older.  I can only hope she will embrace my style choices...

Now that I think of it, this dress actually has quite a story behind it.  A long time ago I dated someone pretty seriously.  While he was good to me, he went behind my back and was also dating someone else (I was young and stupid).  When I finally found out, I broke things off and immediately headed over to the mall for some retail therapy.  The result is this gorgeous dress.  Not going to lie, I felt a million times better after coming home with this beauty!  I take it as a good end to a bad time in my life.  Maybe that's why I have so many emotional ties to certain pieces of clothing?  Each one has their own story.
