Anyone wanna buy a prom dress? Anyone? Anyone?

Remember the prom dress that never came? The one we ordered from China and paid $45 to have expedited?

In English expedited means super fast delivery. But the super fast part was lost in translation over a month ago.

In fact, prom was over a month ago.

Well the dress finally came, and besides the color, fabric and style, it's exactly what we ordered.

We ordered a hippy, flowy, chic dress, but got a movie star dress instead. Which is to say it makes my daughter look 10 lbs heavier than she does off camera. Which is also to say there is something nostalgic about it, like it's been hanging in a costume room off set for the past 30 years.

Other than that it's gorgeous. A bit faded and dated, but otherwise gorgeous.

Anyone wanna buy a size 6 prom dress that makes you look a size 8?

I can have it expedited to you for only $45.

Oh, yes! I've been looking for a size 6 dress that makes me look like a size 8! Yay, my search is over! :)

In response to your question - YES, I'd love to be part of the Magic Quilt! How should I send fabric/how much? Oh how I wish, I could sit with you and talk and talk and talk too! LY!
