I love dressing up, it was always an integral part of my childhood and not just once a year. It was one of my favourite things to do, playing dress-ups with my mom’s clothes or making my own Hawaiian hula skirt. My mom’s friend made a Roaring ’20s flapper dress for me with rows of silky fringes. I loved dancing and acting in my house, I could be whatever I wanted to be. It was all make-believe and I had an unbounded imagination.
I’ve had this top for over 10 years: made in the USA, pretty lace and sparkly rhinestones around the neckline and tiny ruffles on the edges of the sleeves. My butterfly necklace and belt with a flower (both old) are perfect for this outfit.
I’m still me all these years later and love playing dress-ups just as much as ever. This outfit is so fun to dance in, I felt like a butterfly floating around the dance floor! It twirls beautifully! Something I always loved as a child. I only liked dresses and skirts that “danced” as I would tell my mom when I was in the fitting room of a store. I would spin around and if the dress or skirt didn’t flare out, I’d tell my mom, “It doesn’t dance.”
Some things never change.
Did you love something as a child that you still love now?
