I remember the time that I wore my wedding dress to Philip's office Christmas party. Oh wait, that's not what I did. I put on my wedding dress because I wanted to see if it finally fit again (it does!!) and since Philip was wearing a tux for his office Christmas party, we took pictures! :) Too bad I no longer have my veil to complete the ensemble. Oh well. However, I we did conclude that I look better now than when we got married. If only we could re-do our wedding pics....but, um...I don't think it works that way. :)
Then, I changed into my real dress, one from about 10 years ago that I also haven't fit into for a long time...and off we went! Funny story about the dress though. The first time I wore it about 10 years ago, I spilled red punch on it. Turned out, it left a stain. I don't know why I never had the dress cleaned, but I didn't. I wore it a couple of times in the interim, but only when I knew the stain wouldn't be seen. I wanted to wear the dress this year, but was worried about the mark, so we decided to try to clean it with soap and water...and lo and behold...it came out. Who knew?!
