I Could Wish You Nothing Finer

Do you remember this dress?

As promised, I reshot it. I have only worn it once before.

I wore it to my sophmore homecoming dance, so I speculate I was about 14 the last time I wore it. 

The dress is twelve years older than it was the last time I wore it. I think it's a little more fragile, or maybe I'm just more aware of being careful with my beautiful old clothes.

The dress is pretty shredded, in awful condition. I ruined it as a 14 year old. I danced like a banshee at every dance I went to and it shows it!

But it still retains its form. I had no idea how beautiful it really was until today. I mean I always knew it was a nice dress, well made, a bit of a confection really. 

But today, dancing on the eastern plaines, it shone.
