Item 37

J. Crew Bridesmaid Dress.


Ugh. I wish with every fiber of my being that this dress still fit me. It’s really sad.

I wore this dress…in 2007. I was a bridesmaid in my sister’s wedding. It’s a classy, gorgeous J. Crew little black dress. But, I was a teenager when I last wore it. It’s a 2P. I was a tiny gal then. I’m still little, just a little bit more womanly. (haha).

This dress is beautiful. I wore it one time after to a cousin’s wedding, but by then it was beginning to be a little snug. There is no way it would fit me now. I’ve known for quite some time that this has been sitting in my closet, but I was like, “I’m going to sell it on eBay!” and haven’t gotten around to it. Well, I’m getting around to it now! It’s outta here!

Take care, J. Crew Bridesmaid Dress!

Item 4

The Perfect Little Black Dress.


I found Perfect Little Black Dress brand new with tags for under five dollars at my local Goodwill. This thing was magical and we had the best time together.

Perfect Little Black Dress was so perfect it had pockets. I wore this dress to a gallery opening, during student teaching, my student art exhibition, and my college graduation. If there was ever a time I needed to shine, Perfect Little Black Dress was there for me. It was perfect.

I bet you’re wondering if the dress is so perfect, then why am I getting rid of it? Well, I can still fit into PLBD, but it’s not as flattering on me as it once was. It’s a real shame.

You’ll look perfect on another gal and continue your streak of goodness, I’m sure, Perfect Little Black Dress. Best wishes to you.
