My wedding dress.
It's just been chilling in the back of my closet for the past eighteen years. They took turns trying it on, but wouldn't let me take pictures. Abby, being almost as tall as me, fit into it a little better than Maya, who was pretty much drowning in all that material. Of course they had a zillion questions..... Why are these shoulders so big. It's so heavy, how did you wear this all day? I'm already sweating, was it really hot when you got married? (FYI It was. So. Hot.) And then......
Hey Mom, you should try it on. Ummm. I stalled. This could be very good for the ole ego or really horrible. In the end I was kind of curious myself. In the past eighteen years I've had a couple of kids, gained some weight, lost some, gained, lost..... you get the idea.
All I can say is phew...... my ego was saved. On *and* zipped up.
You certainly don't see dresses like this on Say Yes to the Dress.
