Old Dress


So, my friends, this is the EXACT SAME dress that I wore when I was Yuki's age.
Yes, yes it has lastest 31 LONG years. My sister didn't even wear it, I don't think.
So when I was in NZ this last trip I grabbed it, scince I have a girl, and waited for the right moment to put it on her.
It needs a bit of fixing as it only has three buttons in the back and almost splits down to the bottom of the dress.
So it's semi backless LOL.
So it needs to be on the warm side!
But 2 Sunday's ago I put it on Yuki and I think she looks pretty cute.
I know, I know I always say how cute she is, but come on folks, it is what it is!
So I was quite proud of this moment.
My mother has the pic's of me in the dress so I can't copy and scan it in for you to see how IDENTICAL, Yuki and I look.
It's pretty amazing how similar the both of us look at this age.
So I think she'll turn out alright looking.
I think I turned out alright looking!!!
Ahhhhhhhhh so humble.

Ooohhhhh!!! She is SO adorable! I love that dress. You totally have to get those pics from Mum and have them next to each other. She is such a little cutie! She's just growing so fast!

Oh, she is really cute. I love the dress. I know Kristin had a set of overalls that Dru wore as a kid that she had Luke in . It was really cute. I love the bow in the hair too. I was at kid to kid and they have all kinds of those bows that would hook to your headband. Just as an FYI.

Melissa, she's adorable. How fun that you get to put her in one of your old dresses! That's priceless. Think it'll last until her daughter can wear it?

How great to have a dress of your to pull out. She does look cute. "It is what it is." I blessed Meg in the dress I had been blessed in. Loved having that memory.

She is so cute I could gobble her up! I wish I could see the picture of you in the dress, a little compare contrast thing going on. Hip hip for the 70's.
