we can do what we want, we can love who we want

I had originally bought this dress from our local thrift store for less than $15. I never tried it on, I just knew that it would fit. While I was in the store I had already decided to make it my new party dress. It really only needed a few alterations, and after I removed the sleeves it was like it was brand new dress. “La da di da di, we like to party.”

I chose to keep this dress in my closet until I had a special event to attend. Summer ended, Halloween came and went, as did my birthday, Christmas, New Years, and husband’s birthday. Not once did I take it out to wear it. Then, of all things, I watched Miley Cyrus’ video. Not the one where she is naked on a wrecking ball, but the one where she is at a party, having a good time, and not giving a damn. That was when I decided to go up to my closet, put on my dress, and have an impromptu photo shoot while I wore it. Do you know what? It was my best yet. My dress and I were liberated, and “we can’t stop”.
