Ok, so let me tell you about this day! I have been unloading boxes as soon as I get home until I go to bed. I have accumulated a LOT of stuff. But, you know, I am a hoarder. And hoarders place value on EVERYTHING! Like this...
This was my recital costume when I was four years old. I wore it with a sailor hat. How do I know that? I have no idea. THINGS help me remember! That is why I take 9,000 pictures a month. Seeing things helps me remember the moment!
Ellie and Maddi think my old costumes are the bomb.com! ANd I think I may just have to blow up that photo above of the two of them. I love it!
Gabbi Girl could kinda not care less. She dresses up more with a pair of panties on her head. Seriously. I don't know where she learned that, but she sticks em on her head and says, "Mom, wherrrruuuu?" Translation: WHere are you?
This would be my hot pink one piece number from my first majorette recital... the year I took baton. You took baton, didn't you? WHAT? You didn't? How have you grown up to be a productive citizen?!
And I do believe this is from a choir concert in 6th grade. Who knows. I may need it someday!
And this would be my junior high velvet cape from drill team!
Maddi, particularly, took a liking to this one!
Kinda reminds me of Silence of the Lambs, officially the scariest, weirdest movie I have ever seen. And WHY does my demented mind "go there" with this cape and that movie? I just ain't right!
WOw! Now that is a beauty! I am going to say maybe a bridesmaids dress at Christmas time. Nope. Not feeling it. NOt sure what this is. Wow. no memory? really?
ANd this was for sure a bridesmaids dress... from my Uncle Kenny's first wedding. A LOOOONG time ago! I think I was three. Maddi donned this one and went in the front yard and played in the sandpile. I am learning to let go!
Again... not sure. just for sure U-G-L-Y!
Ah ha. This is actually a Staci recital costume. Remember, Stac? Mom had you in an extra large amount of blue eyeshadow and your hair was slicked back in a bun. Remember?
Awww... this was my FIRST recital costume. Or as Ellie now says it, "Costune". I was three when I wore it. ANd now look, my own THREE year old is wearing it. So sweet.
We even have the same teacher.. Miss Linda.
ANd finally, I give you... my Brownie beanie.
Oh, one more... the sash from my 4th grade Highland Bulldogs cheerleading uniform. Oh yes I DO remember! (We wore green banded tube socks! How horendous?!)
ANd that concludes our trip down Melanie's fashion memory lane!
