Wearing my old granny dress
I did it! I finally did it! I wore my old lady dress! Read the older post here. The occasion was my good friend’s graduation party. Cheers to the new lawyer, Laly! Here’s how everything went down.
I wanted to wear the dress without tights, since it was already too covered-up on top. Full disclosure, I’m ending a very fun sabbatical year in my parents’ house in Caracas, Venezuela. Not wanting to cause my dad a heart attack I decided to wear the tights. I kept the jewelry to a minimum—only a pair or pearl earrings given to me for my 24th birthday last Monday, since the print was already flashy enough.
In a sea of bare shoulders and bare legs I definitely stood out, though I’m not sure in the right way. In the pictures I’m too covered up compared to my girl friends. I love the dress and I’m glad I got to wear it, but I think I’m going to shorten the sleeves leaving the shoulder puff. Maybe without the tights it’ll be a different story. It’s just too much fabric!
