Remember a while back, when I told you about the awesome purple dress I found at the thrift store? I didn’t buy it because I thought it was too expensive (I mean, we all have our own sliding scales), and then I went back and found that it was on sale? This is that majestic dress. I had planned to wear it for our anniversary dinner in Newport Beach, but we were so winded and tired that day that we decided to go casual. I was sure I’d get another chance to wear it, and yesterday I put it on, just because.
I love the color, and I love the detail, and I love the architectural pattern of the fabric blocking. And I just realized today that this dress is pretty anniversary appropriate, since it’s fairly close to the color of my bridesmaids’ dresses.
Even though our anniversary was two months ago, I feel like I’m still celebrating being married to Eric every day. I cannot tell you how much he makes me laugh and how kind and compassionate he is on a daily basis. I don’t know what I would do without him.
I had planned to wear all of my wedding jewelry, which I really love, with this dress, so I put it all on. I was so happy when we found this necklace because it fit so perfectly with the soft sparkles of beadwork on my dress.
And these rings, they were my something new, a gift from my Besfrinn. So sweet.
This is even the same lipstick I wore on our wedding day (though no fancy hair today!) Maybe I’ll wear this dress for our anniversary next year, or maybe for my birthday next month. Whenever it makes its way out of my closet, I’ll definitely be ready to celebrate.
