The Wild, Now Tamed

I remember the first time I wore this dress.  It was probably close to five years ago.  I was hosting a volunteer recognition, and I was horribly uncomfortable.  I spent most of my time thinking about the dress and its many shocking colors.  Ha.  How things have changed.

Cardigan, Younkers; dress, thrifted; shoes, thrifted; earrings, purchased at a Christmas bazaar.

Now this dress feels classic, not garish.  I would wear it nearly anywhere but a funeral without a second thought.  I think the flowers are orchids, which makes it all the better.  Orchids are nearly a sickness for me.  I have over a dozen of various sizes and species.
