This dress actually belongs to one of the theater groups I work with. I was looking for poufy prom dresses (for MacBeth’s witches) and found this in the dress rack. As is my habit whenever I find a gem that might fit me among the costumes, I pulled it on over my clothing. One look at the rear view in the mirror, and I was sold.
I was going for a sort of Holly Golightly look with the French twist and pearls. At the wedding, I was told that I resembled the subject of a John Singer Sargent painting. What do you think?
