Outfit of the Week

Today's Outfit of the Week is one of my favorites for this time of year and I can't find it anywhere! This picture is of the one of the last times that I wore it (pre-pregnancy). A few months later I found out that I was expecting and I carefully packed it away along with quite a few other dresses. We put it down under my parents' house and now I can't find it anywhere.

The entire box of dresses has disappeared!

I am determined to find it. It has to be down there somewhere. Most of the dresses probably won't fit anymore, but a few might!

Goal for next week: find this dress!


  1. That's very pretty! I hope you find it!
    I think you and I have very similar tastes in outfits :)

    I saw you said on my blog that you knit, do you crochet as well? (I know how to do neither, but I'm thinking of asking my mom to teach me) I saw this on Etsy and thought it was awesome. And thought maybe if you knew how to crochet as well you would think it was neat too!

    I love how it's from the 1900's!

  2. I LOVE that dress! It's beautiful, and that color is gorgeous on you. Good luck finding it, I certainly would not give up yet, it's too good. ;)

  3. Hi Allison-
    I'm just learning how to crochet, but I'm not very good. I've got the single crochet stitch down, but every time I think I've figured another one out I find out that I've really just made up a stitch of my own. Apparently I'm not as good at figuring out crocheting from books as I was at figuring out knitting. I"ll definitely go check out the Etsy listing right now. I was super excited because I just found two crochet magazines at a antique store (they actually aren't old at all) and I'm trying to use them to motivate myself into learning more.

  4. Hi Brooke-
    I am ready to start my search for the dress tomorrow after Mass. I'm hoping I can enlist my husbands help despite his complaints that he needs to study. There are an awful lot of spiders under the house!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
