This is the only time you will see this dress on me in its full, original form. I’ll also add in that I learned a VERY valuable lesson. My friend asked me to model for a photography project she had coming up. I brought along my outfits that we had picked out and came to find out that my clothes would be the wardrobe for both myself and the other model. This was a little nerve wracking for a person that doesn’t even lend their clothing out to friends. I am beyond protective of my closet (I know, I’m crazy).
So as we were putting on the first looks, the other girl (half my size) was putting on this dress and heard a very loud rip. I assured her I could sew it, thinking it was along the seam, but came to find out that it had somehow ripped right down the center of the bust. I know that it’s vintage and fragile but it was such a bummer. I had just bought the dress a couple days before my Madonna Inn trip with Keiko (where these pictures were taken). So sometime this week, once I’ve gotten over being sick (again!), I’ll be heading to a seamstress in hopes that I can salvage the dress in the form of a skirt. So lesson learned, get details ahead of time and don’t bring anything that you care about to shoots. Or don’t be crazy and get attached to dresses. Either one.
