My mother gave me this darling dress. Her mother made it for her when my mom was attending high school. It makes me so happy just wearing it! When people ask me "where did you get that dress?", it gives me much pride to reply "oh, it was my mother's". The cotton fabric is wonderfully softened by age and is especially cool to wear in these summer dog days.
As you might be able to tell from these photos, I am in dire need of a new haircut. It's getting rather raggedy at the edges and somewhat shapeless. Been considering an asymmetrical look...but I dunno...not sure how well I could pull that off and how it would mesh with other styles. Having short hair does limit me somewhat on what is possible for me.
