This weekend my sister came to visit. She lives in L.A. and I only get to see her about twice a year. When she comes we gather at my parents home and stay in one of our old childhood bedrooms. Right before I left for my visit with her, my lace dresses arrived on the doorstep. I put them in the car and headed off.
When I bid on these dresses in an online auction, I got them for a very good price, and I purchased them for the lace that is in them. I thought that they would be pretty torn and stained, and I knew that they would not be in my size. I was amazed when I took them out of the box to find that they are in great shape. I can't find tears in them, and there is just a little staining on some of the collars, not very much.
My sister and sister in law were just the right size for most of the dresses and agreed to model them for me. My sister in law came in from riding her bike and had her red top on under the dresses. My sister had a great time showing the dresses. Both of my models were very good sports about it and I thank them. And now I continue to be left in a real quandary as to what to do with the dresses. Should I be brutal and just rip them up for the lace, or save them for the great garments they are? Ugh!
