Special Clothing

Susie Bubble pointed out the sheer-sleeved dress Selma Blair is wearing in the new Dazed and Confused, and it reminded me a lot of another sheer-sleeved dress. Or rather, Dress. Everyone has an extremely special item of clothing in their closets, and for me, it's the dress I wore at my Bat Mitzvah, even though it no longer fits. It's the most expensive dress I've ever bought, and although I don't recognize the brand, it was imported from Paris. It's very unique, with silky wine-colored fabric, embroidery around the neck, and sheer lace-edged sleeves. I knew I wanted it the instant I saw it on the rack at this cute little dress boutique, and it fit me perfectly. It brings back such good memories, too. Here's a crappy scanned picture of the top half of it on my 13-year-old self:

the Dress

One of the reasons I love this dress is because it was the first unique item of clothing I ever bought. Everyone else wore smart little suits or plain skirts and tops, and I decided that I wanted something less corporate-looking. It was my Bat Mitzvah, after all. I'm glad I was brave enough to wear it, because I was in my awkward adolescent stage where I mostly tried to fit in. I'm glad I broke the mold. The fitting in thing didn't really work out for me.

The other reason I love this dress is because I think it's gorgeous.

Do any of you have a special dress or favorite item of clothing? I'd love to see pictures (email me) or at least read a description. C'mon, don't be shy. Show me your most special clothing!

This jacket was secretly and sneakily purchased for by my best friend for Christmas last year. We'd both been coveting it for years (as it's silk velvet and the most amazing fabric ever), but retail price, it's so spendy! Homegirl has a job with its maker, and wholesale prices are so much better!

I did a little dance and screamed when I saw it. Now if I only actually left the house when it was cold out, so that I could really wear it...

That's beautiful. I love your dramatic tasste in clothing!

Thank you so much!
I do believe the same is what attracted me to your blog, and your blurry lines between costumes and outfits.
