This is my favorite vintage dress. I've had it for about 3 years. If you're my friend, and I've been to your wedding in that time, I've worn this dress (and if any of you have shared wedding albums online or in person, you've probably noticed).
I wore my favorite dress this past weekend to a wedding, but it was my last one. I'm retiring this dress. It's just been 'done' now. It being vintage, it's also coming apart. I sneezed at the reception and split a hole near the zipper.
I'm sad to be retiring my dress. Of course, I won't get rid of it. I'll repair it, dry clean it, and store it. But before I become known as "the girl in the yellow dress", I think I'll give up wearing it.
Have you ever had a garment you've retired, but have been sad to do so?
Please do tell (and enjoy this cute photo of Mr. Jones).
