This is a picture of my Mom and Dad the night of their High School Prom. I have always adored this picture and spent an hour or so frantically searching for it after reading a couple of entries in J-Land about fantasy play, hoop skirts and sparkling tiaras in the last week or so.
(How about this billowing lace boys?)
This dress hung in my Mothers closet forever, when I was a kid I would try it on and dream about the day when it would actually fit. I was so sure that everyone would think I was the most beautiful girl in all of the land. (nope, never did have Ms America Fantasies like some folks), just wanted to wear that dress.
I guess by the time I was old enough for it to fit, it was no longer on the top of my gotta-do list. To bad because I would love to be posting a photo of me today in the Pretty, Pretty Princess Dress.
As far back as I can remember my whole family has been into playing dress up. My Dad lives in New Orleans and is an amazing costume designer I remember him making me the most gorgeous pair of butterfly wings to wear when I was a little girl. I am planning on posting a lot of costume photos of all of us in October. Heres oneI posted a few months ago, a far cry from the princess.
