Je T'aime Plus Qu'hier Moins Que Demain

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.

    Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you're all surrounded by lots of love! On this day of love I decided to wear a dress that is extra special to me...
   This lovely number was once upon a time my high school prom dress! It used to look a little different, it fell below the knee and was much fuller. I loved wearing it though, so after seeing it sit in my closet untouched for six years I decided it was about time I put it to use! I took out the crinoline and brought the hem up several inches, making it more of an every-day dress as opposed to a formal dress.  And now, every time I wear it, I am reminded of the wonderful night I spent with the bf, and how lucky we are to still be able to cherish that memory with each other. 
   And, I added the last photo to show the dress in it's original condition (that's me at 17!) What have you done with your prom dress? Have you kept it, thrown it out, donated it, gave it to someone else for their prom? Do you still like the style of it (like me), or have you changed drastically and wonder how you ever chose that dress in the first place?

Until next time!
