What I Wear Wednesday - New Years Frock

I finally found something to wear to my sister's New Year's vow renewal ceremony and party!  At a yard sale in Grenada! What?
At the end of every term, when people are leaving the island, they have yard sales.  It is mostly kitchen and housewares... but I obviously found a dress!
I was there selling stuff to get ready to leave, but obviously couldn't resist shopping!
I got it for $3!
It was a little big... it was supposed to be that way I guess because it was a size Medium, but it was a little too voluminous for me so when I got home and dug out my sewing machine and trimmed down the sides.
Sadly I had to lose the pockets :( too much detail for me to deal with... and I was sewinging it like the day before the party. typical.
Anyway, I'm happy with how it turned out and I had the perfect shoes to go with it already sitting in my closet that I got for $3 at an outlet store 2 years ago! yea $6 outfit!
It was a little short, as my entire family pointed out, but you're only 24 on New Year's once!
My skinny hubby and I! He has lost 50lbs since we got married and I'm so proud of him!
My 13yr old niece has some pretty great style too, eh?
Such a beautiful girl inside and out

My sister and I. Loved her sweater dress and I made her hair piece too (hair things and fascinators are another day)

My sister who had the vow renewal and her husband!
beautiful princess fairytale dress!
My beautiful family! My parents (middle) and their 5 grown children!
I'm the baby :)

Definitely not too short. As my mom always reminds me, flaunt it when you've got it, because you'll only have it once. =)

I believe one of our brothers commented, "Nice shirt, Kels" LOL It did look good on you though and matched your hair! :) That sounds like something Luke would say, lol
