Favorite Foto Friday and Funny!




























Almost TWO years ago - my BEAUTIFUL friend, Christie got married - a fabulously hooplatastic wedding at THE RITZ in Philly! Wowsa! I had this gorgeous bridesmaid's dress that I have kept in my closet thinking maybe one day and really do you want to toss $250 bucks in the trash? And NO MATTER what the bride says (Les) you can't cut that purple taffeta dress off and wear it to a party - or the chocolate chiffon with fish tails - So I was spring cleaning and decided it's time - I took it to the DREAM center closet at church (thinking prom dress) As we were unloading the entire back of my car (I LOVE to get rid of clothes - bye bye diesel jeans I will NEVER fit in again) THIS is what happens!

I said "there's a bridesmaids dress in there"
girl said " don't tell me it's chocolate brown"
I say "sure is"
girl say " I am getting married in October and need just ONE dress"
I say " it's a size ____ "(insert guess here - not really - no comments guessing!)
she say " OMGravy - that's what size she wears"

So out of the closet it goes - into her office! LOVE IT!

Hello! I just found your blog, it's very cute.

Stacy said...

Thanks for saying "hi" on my blog! It's so nice to "meet" you! You have a VERY beautiful blog. What gorgeous clothes you sell! If I lived closer to you I'd be in BIG trouble, but Isabella would look so cute!

Have a wonderful day,
Stacy (in Guatemala)

How great did that work out? My word..... I love getting rid of clothes too, but only if I get smaller and the clothes are too big! How often does that happen?

NEVER.

What perfect timing! God is so cool, I wish we could take notice of that stuff more often. Congrats on cleaning out. If I were just 10 lbs lighter, I would have directed you to the Wright family drop off!

How great is that - I think it's not just a coincidence!

You may have just inspired me to get rid of my bridesmaids dresses. You are right, I am never going to wear them!!

Heidi said...

That is so awesome you were able to give your dress to someone who needed it. I've got 2 in my closet that I can't just throw away yet I will never wear them again. Oh well. Looked like it was a fun wedding!

fabulous!such a great place to donate ;-) look at you being a vessel for the Lords work!
oh- and if you have any more designer jeans you need to get rid of- the page house would also be a good place to donate..

What a great story! It was definitely meant to be . . . and was just the right time to get rid of the dress.

Have a great week!
